    Should these sites get accepted?

    I just applied to FastClick and was wondering what they look for in a site. Should these be accepted, www.Matrix28.com www.BlueShadowz.com both have good traffic etc.

    Blueshadoz might be tough. They have been accepting next to no sites that use a CMS.

    And with Matrix28 I see you have Burst ads. Really bust has been blowing FC away for months now. If you don't get in I wouldn't be too broken hearted. Also for me, with my script site, Adsense blows everything else away. Some of the keywords for email stuff, and content management pay pretty good. Made over $200 one day last week with under 100 clicks

    Content management system? It doesn't use anything like that, what gave you that idea?

    Matrix28 probably has a better chance. My scripting site(chipmunk scripts) has had no trouble getting accepted into any affiliate programs. But I do have unique content. Try writing some content for your sites.

    I don't think either of those will be accepted for 2 reasons.

    A. the design is a little, low quality (not to offend your design skills or anything, but in comparison with some other sites they have submitted, yours will be near the bottom)

    B. Fastclick is hard to get in to in my experience.
    GamesLib.com - the slickest, most complete and
    easily navigatible flash games site on the web.

    You actually think that it makes a difference whether a site uses a Content Management System or not when the networks decide whether or not to accept a site? Haha.

    Let us know if you do get accepted. Fastclick seems to reject every site it gets.

    Sorry to say that, but I doubt that your sites will be accepted ...
    I wish you good luck, but their requirements a little higher than what I saw. Try casalemedia - may be there you will be accepted

    nah they probably wont get accepted, the traffic doesn't look very good, what do you get like 800-1000 a day? it's not terrible... the sites look kind of empty, and i don't think they'd care much for the AIM one. maybe i'm wrong.

    here is a direct quote

    We are no longer accepting sites designed with PHP Nuke or the like. On occasion, we may accept a site that uses the PHP Nuke engine when it is not obvious to the end user that Nuke has been implemented.

    You just proved my point. Any site that uses the default setup (or anything too similar) is trash either way. As long as the site is done and customized well, I think it makes little to absolutely no difference to the ad network what type of CMS you use, because I doubt that the ad nets when checking a site thinks something like "Wow this is a nice site, hopefully when I check the source they aren't using the XXX cms"

    Why is everyone under the impression that it is a CMS? It was designed from the ground up.

    At least it doesn't look like a cms for me. Good luck on your application.
