    Giving CJ a full push. I was using adsense and linkshare before. New to CJ.

    So far, I'm more impressed with the quality of lead payouts and interface vs linkshare. As far as adsense, my days of contextual advertising are over for now. Been there, done that. It's not quite what I'm looking for.

    I'll try to keep everyone posted on this thread on my findings vs the campaigns I ran on the other 2 services.

    You should do a lot better with your payouts compared to adsense. You should also give CPA networks a try as their payouts are much higher that adsense.

    CJ = commission junction isn't that already a CPA network? LOL

    One reason i havent moved away from adsense is that I can't afford to not make the cash right now my sites average 8-10$ a day all together, i know CPA shud earn me more, but i can't afford to attempt a swap to cpa ads only to miss a month, i can't afford my server if i don't earn enough...

    other reason is contextuality, i hate hunting for ads or handling when ads are canceled and having to remember which sites i need to remove the ad from or keeping all my 30 sites updated with fresh and new cpa banners and offers.

    oh and last reason, geo targetting of the ads, i mean adsense and sites like adsense automatically work around their geo-based ads so all count that get displayed/clicked, but with CJ and other networks how to make sure the traffic your getting is actually payable and useful by the people that are seeing it.

    is their any solution to this?

    You can do what I do. I use openx for all of my sites. I house all of my ads there, and all of my sites serve up the changes with one click. Openx is free and it's a great tool in keeping all the ads for all of my sites together in one central database.

    I signed up for CJ a few months ago. When I tried to use the system for ads paying right now decent amount for clicks, it required that I be approved. I still have not heard back from them and the ads are probably expired by now. What is the secret of doing this? I must be doing something wrong.
