Using the premise that a reader action can’t occur unless reader and ad meet, this week I’ve been looking at ways to evaluate your site and its revenue performance.  We looked at ad location and site performance so far, and now we turn to network performance.  You’re only as fast as the company you keep.

As affiliates, we spend a lot of time reviewing offers and content to ensure … [Read more...]


We all have a need for speed – speedy loads of our site and its associated ad servers.  In a world where people grow bored and move on in an average of 3.4 seconds, we do not want to do anything to encourage site defection.  So how fast is your site? According to comScore, over half of all display ads on websites are never displayed, resulting in significantly reduced earnings for the publishers.  Last time I challenged you to take a close look at the design of your site, especially what is … [Read more...]

Laser Target Your Ads For Higher Conversions And Quality


One of the most common mistakes amateur marketers make is being too broad in their advertising campaigns. “I want EVERYONE to see this. It benefits everyone.” Yeah, okay, good luck. Unless you have a shitload of money to invest for testing, I’d suggest that you target your ads a bit more. First of all, EVERYONE is NOT interested in what you have to offer, that’s just how it is, no matter how great you think your product or service is.
