Cool Which sponsor should use high trafficked Music sites?

Yo people.

I have high content web site called Mpeg-Search. (http://www.mpeg-search.com) with 40.000 daily unique visitors.
I have had a webpage about 1 year now. So I came in right in the moment when the advertising market started to drown. I was unable to join any good and reliable networks this is why I have never recieved any checks so far.
I was in a bunch of networks but I never recieved a check from them. (AffiliateTarget, Everyone.Net, Dimeclicks, 1bn.org)
I am running a non popup campaign and with banners without a good sponsor it is impossible to get any money out of the site also if you have a lot of traffic.

Right now I got quite some opportunities. I can join FocusIn, Advertising.Com, Luna Network, AdPepper. FocusIn have very low rates so I am not interested in using them. Advertising.com have even lower rates. I make 1.5$ with 25.000 impressions daily with them heh. I am not sure about current status of Luna Network and AdPepper.

Please suggest me any ideas about how to optimize the site and which programs to use. I tried some sale programs from safe-audit but it seems like their program does not even track sales. I was suspicious so I tried to signup on their advertiser. After one week I still see 0 registrations ;(

Default Hi Luke

Firstly, I love the site, I produce psy-trance myself here's
a link to one of my mp3s:


let me know what you think.. : )

anyway how to turn that traffic into cash.

I'd recommend you use your site to generate opt-ins and then
turn the opt-ins into cash.

It would appear from looking at the site your opt-in campaign is
tied in with your membership, is that correct?

Even targetted banners are clicking in at less that 0.15% CTR.

15 people in every 10,000 is a pretty poor result wouldn't you

So the only banners I'd recommend you use would be a 1:1
impression exchanges, the best I've found being BannersGoMLM
because of their 5 tier affliiate matrix.

Being able to split your impressions proportionally, you can feed
a portion of the traffic back into the affiliate program of the
exchange, and create even more passive advertising.

Oh and always use stealth banners such as these:-
(the jedi banner clicked in as high as 9% a few months

I've just started using CyberBounty as a great source of
affiliate revenue, since CJ.com don't seem to have their tracking
working properly. (they've got so much grief recently that they
were forced to shut down their CJU forum down to stop the
negative word of mouth, from spreading.)

CyberBounty only have a small number of affiliate merchants
but they offer some of the best payouts I've ever seen.

They also offer the ability to automate your entire revenue
generation through their site replication and opt in subscriber
pop up.

If pop up really arn't your thing, CyberBounty also offer
the ability to add an extra string to the end of each URL
to stop the pop ups.

I hope that helps, Oh and let me know what you think to
da trance ; )
