Default Need CPM advice.

Hey all, I run the site msxsecurity.com , petitionspot.com , siggyhost.com and a few others.
All together it gets a ton of impressions (here is a SS of my awstats for JUST msx)
(just over 2 million page views a month)
I have tryed adsense and some other CPC deals, and i really dont like them. I made good money, But I think I would do much better on CPM.
What do you guys think I could make, and what network should I try with?

Welcome to Geek/Talk, maz.

I hate to answer a question by asking you questions, but a couple of things you said caught my attention and providing the answers to these questions might help our members give you a better answer to your question.

You said you make good money with AdSense and other CPC deals, but you think you could do much better with CPM. What makes you think this?

That takes me to the second question. What CPM amount are you wanting?

I actually used more CPA offers, and would easily make around 3k a month.
I figure if I can even get a 50 cent cpa, It will just be extra cash.
Petitionspot in general would be a very high performer, with 60k uniques every day, almost all of them new visitors.

Well, it's certainly worth trying.

Shoot off a couple of applications to TribalFusion.com, CasaleMedia.com, BurstMedia.com, FastClick.com and Hurricane Digital Media for starters and see which bite. You could then run one ad unit in the CPM model and compare this to what you were earning from the same ad unit when you were running AdSense and CPA campaigns. If you've made an improvement, a larger roll-out could see your earnings increase.

Of course, the determination isn't quite as simple as what this suggests, but there's nothing better than a bit of trial-and-error to sort the wheat from the chaff.

Best of luck.
