I was just reading a thread over at SitePoint Forums on where someone ask which is the Best Ad Network?
Someone answered with this list which I found really helpful. I’ve filled in the links of some of those mentioned.
Tier 1: Tribal Fusion, Fast Click, Burst, 24/7 Real Media
Tier 2: Casale, RealTechNetwork, Max Online, RightMedia, Rydium
Tier 3: BUDS, JoeTec, RealCastMedia, GorillaNation, ValueClick
Tier 4: FocusIN, EzzPublishers, BannerSpace, ClickXchange, Adtegrity, BraveNet, Undertone Network
Tier 5: ValueAd, CompactBanner, (same company), ClixGalore
They write in explaining the list – ‘based on rates, difficulty of becoming accepted, and quality of advertisements. Tiers 1 – 3 are, overall, good ad networks. Anything below three either means their ad quality, ease of entrance into their network, or questionable business in the past is in question.’
What ad providers have you tried? What additions or changes would you add to the above list?
