Default Blue*******?

www.blue*******.com

I was accepted into their network probably a month ago but have not used them yet because I haven't been able to find enough information about them. I heard they just broke off from ValueClick because their non-compete expired. Anybody familiar with them at all?

This is all I could find on them:

Although I don't like Alexa due to alot of inaccuracies, their ranking is not bad if it is partially correct.

Exercise with caution though because it seems they have not been around that long.

Good luck.

I hope they are legit. I just joined and made more in an hour with them than I do in a day with fastclick.

I am pretty positive they are legit. I met a few guys that work there at AD Tech San Francisco...

They are very new but have the backing of some experienced people.

They throw a lot of parties too.

Well, the earnings are amazing. Google adsense was my breadwinner before this, but blue******* is making me 2 or 3 times what google did per day.

Good to hear...What type of ads are you using? CPM, CPC or CPA?

The ads are cpm that i'm using. Here are the stats so far. This is after about a day and a half.


Current revenue: $80.38 (+$39.60) Impressions total: 230,559 (+105,339)
Clicks total: 11 (+8) Actions total: 0 (+0)

My sites are pretty high traffic, but to give a comparison I've earned about 30.00 for the ENTIRE month with fastclick.

jokearound,
Sure, he is making $7 per click but he is making less than $1 cpm which isn't all that great. If a creative is highly targetted and not too flashy it is pretty easy to earn a high payout per click.

It's a cpm program so the per click doesn't really matter to me. Are there any other networks that pay a higher cpm, accept message forum based content sites, and actually count all of my impressions? Fastclick has been terrible for me as of late. These are for 768X90 creatives BTW. This is by FAR the most I have ever made witha cpm program o nmy sites, and I have tried quite a few.

I have no idea what their criteria are. I run mainly automotive sites.

yes, I realise its only 35c CPM, but if network wide they are only getting 11 clicks in 230k impressions (and I dont know if they are, I dont use them) soon enough the advertisers are going to pull out..thats what I would do anyway!
