    I'm looking for a CPC (Cost per click) advertising network for my website, and would appreciate any comments or recommendations. I've tried ValueClick and Fastclick (they seem to be the best), but there's not accepting any new affiliates now.

    Advertising.com (formerly teknosurf) has long been considered the best CPC network. With rates up to 35 cents and they also claim to be able to get ctr of 3% that is over $10 CPM from a CPC Campaign if its true. Of course I'm sure thats not true anymore in the current advertising market - but they're probably still the best CPC provider.

    You'll find it very hard to gain entry into Advertising.com's program these days. Last month, they purged their membership of several smaller and mid-sized sites, and seem to be focusing on a few key properties. What's more, they are also generating far lower response rates from fewer distinct banners.

    Right now, ValueClick is a far better option, though as you said, they are also being very selective at present.

    You should also consider WebsiteSponsors, Click2Net, ClickAgents and Burst! Media (the latter being a hybrid CPM/CPC broker).

    Rizal, that happens to be my specialty. Net-Ads features reviews of all the best (and a few of the worst) online ad networks, and is now updated on a daily basis to keep such views current.

    For a balanced view, you can also examine the reviews of such agencies on ClickQuick and Adbility.com.

    I have to tell you that Advertsing.com was probably the worst option ever. Our site ran with them for over a year, the click-through rate was horrible and the freshness of rotation much worse. We dropped them. Their e-mail newsletter network rock though.


    I like Fast Click though.
