    Hm.... Now that you mention it, I agree. The rates are starting to even out with Casalemedia.

    They've gone completely in the toilet for me.

    I've been using them as my Pop Under provider... and my rates and number of impressions served has just totally plummeted in the past couple of weeks.

    I actually found them serving me a Pop Under today that paid ZERO. This wasn't a charity or a stupid community service ad either. It was an annoying flashing ad for some stupid product.

    I think it's time to abandon Valueclick, but I'm not sure where to go.

    One of the things I like about Valueclick is that they'd pay me via Pay Pal. Is there any other at least semi-decent ad provider that will do that?

    $0.35 for Leaderboard, Skyscraper is a very good rate. I have around $0.75 for Medium Rectangles. Not bad at all.

    Most of their ads are CPM, and I don't see CPC campaigns that low.... most are 10 cents and up.

    Are anyone else's rates erally dying over the last week? Specifically Medium Rectangle ads. I was getting $1.70 eCPM on Medium Rectangles about a week ago. Now I'm down to $1.11 and still dropping at a steady rate.

    I added another rectangle to my site, would that make my CPMs drop that much? Or is it just coincidence?

    My 468s have dropped from $0.39 to $0.31. I can't complain too much about that. It's the rectangles that really bother me.

    Dude, $1.11 CPM for Medium Rectangle ads is damn good! I am at $0.40 for that.

    I guess I won't complain.

    Valueclick must just spoil new customers or something.

    I took a massive hit on Saturday/Sunday, some of my peak hours and income slashed by 2/3s :S
