    I just wanted to vent a little and get some advice if possbile. This is my first post, wow, when i found this board I thought it was the coolest thing.

    Anyway, I've been trying to monotize my site for the last few months. I didn't think there was much to it but I guess I was wrong.

    The first thing I did was join adsense. Instead of making 10,000 pages and making 5 cents a day on each page, I went the other way, 4 or 5 pages with a few ads on them. Well, the money stated adding up but of course I wanted more. So I started reading everything I could find about making more with adsense. I got to the point were I was making 85 bucks a day, per page with ctr around 25-35%. Nothing dirty, just clean content with strategic ad types and placement. When my account to several hundred bucks, I got the email saying I was disabled. I could not understand what happened. I never clicked my ads, never spammed, followed the TOS to the Tee. What the heck? Oh well...

    So then I joined adbrite and bidvertiser and started doing the same thing I was doin with adsense.
    Bidvertiser is a piece of crap. No CTR, no support, no money, and finally they closed my account and kept the 5-6 buck I'd manage to make. What a joke.
    Adbrite prooved to be much better, ctr was about 20-30% but I was only averaging .03 a click. Wow hey? a few of the clicks got to about 50-70 cents, but not many. Anyway, after optimising the pages and rejecting anything under 6 cents per click, I got the income to about 18 bucks a page per day. When the money got to a few hundred bucks, they withdrew the ads and banned me as well.
    I just got an email saying that I was clicking my own ads and that my content was not original. Fvck them, I write every page myself and NEVER have clicked my own ads.

    So now...heheheh... I just loaded up some clicksor and I guess we'll see what happens. I dont expect much as everything I have read says they dont pay worth a sh*t. I talked to a rep and went through my whole process and they said they would not ban me (ok we ll see...).

    Incidentally, I've been pushing some clickbank stuff and like what I've seen. Problem is conversion sucks the big one. I like making 75 bucks on a sale though, can anyone suggest some clickbank gem I can use?

    In the meantime, I'll see what kind od damage i can do with clicksor; I also think there might be money to be made with clicksor premium publisher, where you get to pick your click amounts and ads. Does anyone use this "updated" version of clicksor?

    Any thoughts shared are appreciated.

    Big.

    Just wanted to post an update. Clicksor turned out to be very good. I got my page to about 20 bucks a day, but then I got shut down again. I found the customer service very good. I now have figured out why I've been getting banned. It's because my PPC is untargetted and too robotic looking. Clicksor told me if I show server logs and can prove my traffic is actual people, they would turn my account back on. Interesting as my host wont let me have access to my logs. I'll keep working on it.
    Question, is anyone making money from untargetted traffic? This traffic is real, not that crappy pop-under generated traffic.
