    I don't have a very big budget so I only purchased 20k impressions a slot for $20 think it will help me get signups?

    of course. But I don't know about the current results. But they were good previously.

    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+
