    Hmm, I saw this method of advertising on some other big sites. What made you think it's realcastmedia company, is it the name? Anyone know which established companies does have this text link method(mouseover)?

    Yea, their contact information gives me a lot of confidence. A New York, New York telephone number when the address is clearly New Jersey. Strange.

    There's something to say about the correlation between a nicely designed website and the worth of the network as a whole. In this case they fail.

    I doubt I would ever run these kinds of ads. For one, my biggest site wouldn't really fit in it, but I still wouldn't run it on my content site- it tends to confuse your audience. Yes, they'll click more because of that, but you'll alienate and confuse as well.

    More improtantly, I think RealCast is running before they walk. They still have some issues with their new ad server. They really need to correct that first before starting up new companies/divisions. Their creditability can fail pretty fast when everything is said and done; and it would hurt both networks rather than improving them.

    Yes sometimes they have javascript error with their new ad server. But I like the new ad server. They have more ads and the rate is much better.

    Speaking of in-text keyword links, does anybody use that system on content-rich sites? And if yes, in your opinion, does it scare visitors away?

    I never liked RCM a search of this forum will reveal why. However, people on geek/talk seem to be happy with it.

    Why would that bother you? A lot of companies use drop box for their mail in a nearby location, or even have phone center in a different office.

    When a company has an address in one state and a telephone in the other, it does not give much in terms of trust.

    I agree... Why would you not trust them?

    None that I have ever heard of. I would be interested to see a fortune 500 company have only one address in one state and only one telephone in another. Regardsless, you have your requirements, and I have mine. Best of luck in whatever you do.

    I've been wanting to try something like this but those ads look nasty. No thanks.
