    AdBrite - Good CPC Campaign?

    Is AdBrite good alternative CPC campaign?

    Does it make sense to switch from AdWords to AdBrite?

    Or maybe other marketing capaign that's better than CPC ?

    There's no clear answer without having more information first...

    Why are you looking to switch providers? Is AdWords not preforming for you? If not, is it an issue of conversion or cost?

    Regarding Adbrite

    Personally, I have tried them several times for a few different campaigns. The results haven't been good. The campaign setup gives you a number of different options, including a selection for better, less edgy, family oriented sites. You can select based on different demographics. My experience however, has been no matter what settings I choose, I get the same junkie sites every campaign.

    Consequently, I end up advertising B-to-B products and services on less edgy, family oriented sites like 'Daves Porn Site' and hundreds of other sites not even remotely related to the selection criteria I entered.

    But the worse part is, that for all the thousands of clicks that I can generate off of Adbrite, my tracking system has not yet given credit for a single order to an Adbrite click-through.

    On the other hand, I'm pretty sure I know why you're looking for alternatives to Adwords. I've got my bones to pick with them to. Oh well, always something to work on.

    I think there may be some cases where the types of sites they offer are good for the type of product someone is selling, but I have heard more bad reviews than good, though surely it is working for some people.
