    I am looking for an Ad Company that will pay top dollar (but everyone wants that). I've tried eAds, and their ads were so "off base" with my site, that no one would click on them.

    mjames86 recommends Burst!.

    Any one else out there have opinions about a good ad company?

    Thanks!

    It depends on what kind of ad company you want to use.

    CPC (pay by click)?

    CPM (pay be impression)?

    For CPC, I highly recommend WebSiteSponsors.com. They just moved their offices and servers to iBoost and they provide great support, stats, referrals, and they have one of the highest rates (17 cents/click) on the web.

    As WebMasterAJ said, I recommend Burst! Media. They offer an enormous amount of account perks and they seem to be for real.

    You should base your choice of which kind of ad company to go with on your traffic levels. The general guideline is that if you get less than 10,000 uniques monthly, go with CPC until you reach higher traffic levels. If you get over that, go with CPM. You'll make more money and no one has to click on anything to pay you.

    Some other ad agencies include:

    Everyone.net's
    Flycast.com
    Advertising.com

    I too reccomend WebSiteSponsors.com. They always seem to pay on time and I've had great success with them. They have friendly support and always are polite and professional when I contact them.

    I used to use eAds but went with WebSiteSponsors because of the higher payout rate. Advertising.Com also looks good but I have never used them.

    I have a Sports site, and I will use WebSite Sponsors, but I wanted to have two ad companies on the page. I tried Burst! but they said that they couldn't accept the site since they had no advertisers that would fit into my Sites category.

    I've been looking around and found http://www.sponsorships.net/ they pay for click and lead (when someone buys something or etc). However, I was looking for a good CPM company, I found FastClicks, but I saw a post that wasn't that great on this message board about them. FastClick pays your for everything, Impressions, Clicks, and Leads. http://www.fastclick.com/index.html


    Any other ideas?

    Since WebSiteSponsors no longer offers ads other than 468x60 size, I would say go with http://www.advertising.com for your button ads. That's what we did. Good luck!
