    Hey guys,

    I've never really sold banner ads before, however I have a site that is doing poorly for the amount of traffic it is receiving and I'm wondering what you guys think it's worth - what would you pay for it?

    So the site is a PR2 celebrity fansite, receives 25k+ UV a month and receives about 125,000 impressions. I've monetized it with Adsense, generally low CTR (ads not targeted) and eCPC isn't too great either; as you'd expect from this niche.

    Anyway, I have 2 sitewide spots available; one 300x250 and one 160x600; both above the fold. Low OBLs, traffic is increasing and not a promotional site at all.

    Any indications of what I should sell the spots for?
    I plan on selling some monthly spots and flipping this site over the next month or so; ideally I'd like to have a little more revenue than $40 a month from Adsense (although it has been making $2-3 a day the last week or so).

    Thanks in advance.

    Why not try content locking?

    25,000 visitors a month... you get just 1% to do some content unlocking, at $4 each, that's 1,000... more than you're making now.

    You should be making much more with that traffic.

    Try content lock pro 2 (self hosted) or blam ads (hosted with affiliate company)

    I was thinking about this..

    Would I do it upon first click or as soon as they visit?
    Is there an advantage to picking BlamAds over say Dollarade or CP4L3ad?
