    Google Adsense? Most people use it and it's the most decent one IMO.

    AdSense just doesn't seem to perform well on forums.

    The CPM networks that have been recommended to me are:

    • Adsdaq
    • Direct Media Exchange
    • Tribal Fusion
    • Burst Media
    • Ad Dynamix
    • ValueClick


    IDG TechNet is carving out a nice sector in the tech niche, but I don't know how hard it is to be approved by them. They contacted me, so I sort of did the process in reverse.

    TechMediaNetwork looks to be another similar opportunity. They contacted me, but I haven't tested them yet.

    NetShelter and VibrantMedia are great, but they won't work with small publishers.

    Hi gmaister22. Here's my tip to surviving some of the 'bad' advertisers.

    Try to avoid Clicksor and RightMedia ( Yahoo ads - and now merged with Microsofts advertising dept) like they have the plague. Both advertising networks will kill off your visitors with malware infected ads. It's just not worth the risk.

    Clicksor are one of the worst advertising networks ever seen, with like a 90 - 99% malware infection rate. Your visitors will get hijacked with nasty things like Zbot (Zeus Botnet).

    Here are some recent Clicksor examples - http://stopmalvertising.com/tag/clicksor.html

    RightMedia are well known to allow absolutely anything. It seems they are only concerned with the $$ and are unable or just too incompetent to check anything first before approving rogue advertisers.

    Even google / doubleclick gets fooled occasionally by fake malware advertisers - malvertisements on top 1000 sites the weekend in review , Doubleclick MSN malware attacks - register , but with clicksor it's on a much larger and more regular scale.

    My tip is to get high visitor traffic and an active membership first. Then you will have a site that networks will be keen to place Ads on. Before this you need to focus on building up your membership and content.

    You can also try using CPA networks to monetize your sites traffic. A well targeted cpa offer converts better and will make you more money than adsense/clickbank program etc.

    Basically, you need over 100 visitors per day to make a $ and 1000's per day to make a living IMO
