    Well, with the high page impressions I would go with a CPM ad network instead of PPC. Why don't you check out Value Click Media, they are the best CPM network in my honest opinion and make my humor websites quite a bit of revenue from page impressions. If you like it sign-up, if your not approved let me know in this thread and I'll suggest some other CPM networks.

    id say theres something else going on here, bots hitting the site or something...no real visitor is going to hit 800+ pages, unless theres some hardcore refreshing going on. you wont be making anywhere near as much as you think you will, and CPM networks wont take the traffic

    put google analytics on there, and you should get a more accurate picture of REAL visitors.

    It all depends on a site's content, but only one-half to one percent of a site's visitors click on ads, so...do the math.

    I don't mean to burst your bubble, and I do wish you success with your site, but that isn't quite enough for making the kind of money you might be thinking about.

    Of course you should still put ads up, but you have a ways to go yet.

    Perhaps when you get more visitors, you should consider putting in popular and nice-looking ads, like ringtones, smileys, music downloads, e-cards, screensavers....

    You may want to consider staying away from boring ads, like Google ads.

    Also, think about putting in a "send to a friend" form right there in front of their faces, on your home page. Get word of mouth going.

    So you have seen ALL the ads on such products?

    I'm impressed. ... How did you do that?

    And it is "upon," not apon. :-)

    Correcting my grammar does not change the fact that you think some of the most annoying ads are the best ones when it comes to website design intergading.

    lol oh relax. I'm just needling you.

    I'm sorry, man, but you seem a bit snooty and rigid to think that.

    Reeeeelaaaaaax. Take the sitck out of your butt.

    Like all ads, some are annoying, some aren't. I have seen some nice ads on such products. And you take some of the most popualr products out there and wrap a nice ad around it, well, it's not rocket science.

    Oh, and if they don't flash, how are they any annoying than any other display ad??? Oh, wait, they are annoying because they are on fun, not serious stuff, right?

    Whatever the product, there, "Charles," :-)~ the ad should be nice, fun, interesting... Not boring, like Google ads.
