Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a website where I have many of the programs I host, and I am looking for alternatives for publishing ads. The reason why I'm asking is because traffic on my site has more then tripled the ad revenue has gone down.

I know about google adsense and adbrite.

Requirements are:

  • Control over the ads
  • Regular ads
  • (bonus) Ability to control the ads via "type" like automaticly block moving/annoying clash ads

My site has over 20k pageviews a month.

AdSense

  • +No minimum requirements for traffic.
  • +No adult ads
  • +Some times gives out free ad money, so you can advertise you site.
  • -Very limited control over the ads ( You can block specific domains where the ads come from).
  • -Many "scammy" ads over products that seems to good to be true (IE download X to fix your computer).

Adbrite

  • -Can't really say much about them, I "gave" them 250k page views and I got less then 1 dollar in revenue back.

When adding information about an ad publisher, please provide some basic information to help others viewing this topic. And if your willing provide personal experience also.

It might help to know the subject matter of your site. Some ad providers are genre specific. –  Virtuosi Media Aug 9 '10 at 23:05
    
Not gonna add more information about my case, as its community wiki now. So hopefully make it so generic that others will enjoy the information provided to. –  EKS Aug 10 '10 at 20:12

Project Wonderful is something used on Schlock Mercenary and the I remember the owner, Howard Tayler, talking about similar control issues.
