    Wait until you see the fill rate and how many defaults are shown instead of ads. Your jaw will drop. Sometimes I think to myself is it worth it..

    Just remember to set up your own defaults there - otherwise you'll end up seeing nothing but those annoying survey ads

    And congrats on being accepted!

    they do both CPC and CPM but I don't think I'm allowed to tell rates exactly. While they're pops are nothing extremely special, their cubes and skyscrapers and banners are quite good rates

    Setting TF as a default? I'm surprised you're seeing better rates with Burst than with Tribal Fusion.

    Adsense is CPC, Burst is mostly CPM. They are not comparable in a general way.

    Doesn't seem that difficult. Probably a bit harder than FastClick, but no where near as hard as Tribal Fusion.

    Same here.

    Taking into account both the rates and defaults, I have TF default to Burst rather then the other way around.

    I maybe miss something here, but why do you people use CPM at all, with the rates today for CPM, isn't it worth it to go to CPC programs(when your traffic is targeted enough?

    CPM rates are actually quite good if you get in the right network like burst or tribal fusion

    CPC is only good if people click on the ads. If the ads aren't targetted enough people won't click and so CPM is preferred.

    No, but you can set the priority to 1 and the other defaults to 100 or more and it should limit the surveys appearing to a minimum.

    They're talking about BurstMedia, http://www.burstmedia.com, an online advertising network.

    You can remove the burst media defaults or survey defaults completely if you replace it with another standard non-richmedia default. But if you only have a rich media default from another network, you would have to select one of the available burst defaults.

    I thought Fastclick was harder to get into, as I wasn't accepted for some reason (of course, they don't tell you why you weren't accepted...). I got accepted into Burst, but no matter what I do, I'm just getting defaults. Back to AdSense.
