    CPM Help

    Does anybody know an ad network that pays good CPM? We've launch a site last week and so far we've recieved 139,000 hits in the last 10 days.

    A hit is meaningless. You need to know how many page views you get. One page view can result in 10 hits.

    If you're just using the less correct word "hit" to describe a page view or impression fine. But many people get confused when their log analysis software reports hits, they think those are page views, they're not. They're HTTP requests. So every request for a file on your server, be it an html page, javascript file, image, movie, or whatever, results in another hit.

    Just looked at my log analyzer and it served about 60,000 successful pages(pages requested) since last week.

    You can still run into confusion with log analyzers.

    If your pages use frames then a single page view can still result in a log analyzer inflating the true number of page views. Additionally if you run any client side include such as for a css file or js file then the analyzer might also mistake those requests for additional page views.

    This confusion is fairly common which is why I bring it up. This is also a reason why people shouldn't rely solely on log analyzers, especially the cheap ones, for traffic analysis.

    I actually wrote an article on all of this recently, SitePoint should be publishing it in a week or so.

    Burstmedia.com has decent ads and can get targetted ads for you that pay over $10 CPM. Their ad technology sucks though and there aren't alot of management features for the publisher.

    fastclick.com is also decent, and they have well paying pop-unders.

    Most people join more than 1 network and feed the defaults from one to the other. Fastclick is a popular choice for first ad network since they have great technology and you can easily feed them ads from other networks.
