    How many ads do you have running?
    You need to split test to figure out what works for you.

    I'm currently testing out BuySellAds again - 30,000 impressions for $12. Cheap and it fits so well with my niche. I'm gonna scale it up by a lot if I get good results.

    So tempting to try it out.. But tons of sites on their are sketchy.. Horrible sites, claiming tons and tons of traffic, but when I go onto them, they have broken links, look horrible, don't seem legit, etc.

    I would stay away from BSA. You can easily send fake traffic to increase the amount of views / month. As someone else noted above, there is lots of crappy sites listed there as well so be sure on that the traffic is real before you pay anything. I usually ask the owner of the website for stats before i buy anything and 75% of the times i ask, i never get a reply back. Guess why.. :) GL anyway, there are some nice deals there as well. :)

    Maybe your ads suck.

    Are you split testing?

    Testing it first month, have ads on 3 different sites for start average CTR 0.16%. Some sites are crap but some are really good that can get you targeted traffic so I think it is worth it even after bad CTR.

    Yeah, but on the other hand you can find PR6+ websites with 120,000 backlinks+
