    I never made a ton, but with Adsense i averaged between $1 and $5 per day. Then i got banned for using "link schemes" and since then i've tried several other ad companies.

    For a month i've been using Clicksor, i get the same number of page impressions, the same ad layout, but i'm only making pennies per day.

    Also it seems like even if people click on my ads, it makes no difference. Does anyone have any suggestions.

    That is sick man. on 5-10-2012 you had 2891 impressions but no clicks. That's impossible. Although I have no idea about Clicksor but I have never seen anything bad like this.

    clicksor is just like all the other advertising sites. you sign up, then create your Code that you paste into the HTML of your site.

    Although Clicksor tried to get me to do all sorts of redirect and image overlay ads.

    The thing that bothers me is when i was with AdSense, i would get paid anywhere from 50cents - $3 per click. With Clicksor it doesn't make a difference.

    clicksor is such a crappy network.
    i suggest staying far away from them.
    they completely stole my earnings from me, and banned my site.
    they said "the traffic quality was not good enough".
    maybe it wasn't, but that doesn't mean to steal my money from me, at least payout what i already earned.
    not to mention that they pay extremely low because they are a sketchy public network where anyone can join.
    get into a better network man, but it's going to be hard for you because you don't have a lot of traffic.

    media.net looks promising, but i got this message:

    Important Note: Media.net will begin issuing accounts on Oct 15, 2012

    (1) We will begin issuing a limited number of accounts daily starting Oct 15, 2012. Therefore, it may take us some time to get back to you on the status of your invitation request.


    (2) Each website that you have submitted is individually reviewed by us for approval. There are several factors including advertiser demand, that determine which websites get approved and the order in which we process invitation requests. We will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.



    This looks like it might be the next best thing after AdSense

    it's probably due to companies like skimlinks.. they suck your traffic.

    i got adsense disabled because of "link schemes" and violating their conditions. I was not banned, just disabled. Google still sent me my check but adsense no longer works on my site. I wrote a letter but they said that it was still disabled.

    I kind of gave up hope of ever getting adsense reactivated. There's no way to undo all of those un-natural backlinks.

    had i known then what i know now, i probably shouldn't have let GSA and No Hands SEO run for several weeks straight. It created several thousand backlinks in 2 months.

    Just remember 1 simple rule, If you would like to make a stable nice $$$ don't go with PayPerClick or CPM companies, go with CPA or product sales.

    Would Google Affiliate Ads be a good option?
    http://www.google.com/ads/affiliatenetwork/publishers/blogger/


    Or Amazon Affiliates?
    https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/

    And i assume you are purchasing 1 domain name, for 1 specific product and creating an entire SEO structure around specific keywords for that product.

    I mean if you wanted to promote say, Dewalt Drill, you would buy something like www.dewaltdrillsrebates.com then build a money page with that affiliate link on it. Then get that page to appear in the top 10 of the SERPs for your kewords "buy dewalt drill" or whatever it is, by doing all the SEO stuff.

    I know this is an old thread but just throwing my $2 in.

    Both Clicksor and Chitika are sick and not recommended, their evil tactics of sucking your traffic should be known by everyone.

    They suck the traffic from larger publishers as well and basically pay them pennies.

    My stats look no different, that I can assure you, even though I have quality traffic.
