You may have noticed that during the last month I was trying to include some Clicksor in this blog, I got the idea to try them when I found out at the Google Adsense webinar that it is ok to include some ads from other providers as long as they do not confuse the user to be Google ads.
Anyway, Today I’m removing all clicksor ads from this website for the following reasons.
1. Very low income. I tried some of the most successful clicksor ad forms, Interstitial Ads ads, in-text ads, and pop-under ads. For every dollar I made on ad sense, I made around 5-10 cents in clicksor.
2. contextual ads are too stupid, I have never seen it coming up with something smart, OK it will highlight the word “Play Game”, but when you “mouseover” it a small pop up will come with the dumb suggestion “Learn all about Play Game!!”
3.Interstitial Ads do not work most of the time, I use opera, and I often browse my own blog, but only once I have seen the Interstitial Ad in action, it took over the entire screen, and ,,, and,, and thats it, the screen remained white until i clicked a small button on top of the page to close it.
4.Floating ads suck, they do! , first, only 2 ads seemed to appear to me, one about Ad Onion, an ad service, and the other about some stupid mail filter, don’t expect much change in the ad, according to the page contents.
So for now, I’ll stick with Ad sense from Google until further notice.
Have you tried Clicksor? did you like it?
