Default Banner Ad advice

Hoping some of you guys can give me some advice here in regard to banner ads.

I have 3 sites, all celeb picture sites, that combined have 1 million plus page views a month.

Current advertising.

2 use 1 x 468, 1 x leaderboard and 1 x skyscraper the other has no leaderboard. All from MammaMedia. They default to 888 casinos & adultfriendfinder.

they all use a popup from PayPopUp which defaults to 4 small sites I have plus to access the full pics I use an active x program.

Now my question is I DONT want to use 888 casinos & adultfriendfinder as the conversion for my traffic isnt good.

What can you suggest I do?

Traffic is mainly USA / UK (60%) then european with around 15% mixed.

Thanks

To my believe, there aren't many ad networks that accept adult sites :/, but I saw a check box in Rydium saying "Adult", so they may accept sites like yours. I am very happy with Rydium so far, so I can only recommend them , great rates and great customer support!

undoubtable people are going to tell you Adsense.

For a celeb site I could not disagree more. As a person who runs a bunch of entertainment sites, keywords for most Celebrity related stuff is Garbage, generally around 3-5 cents. Plus I'm assuming your site has picture galleries and such. So your unique to pageview ratio is pretty high. That'll make the convertions of adsense even worse.

I would suggest other CPM networks. Celeb sites are hard to get into major networks but some of the 2nd and 3rd tier will take them. I'd check out RealCastMedia they are pretty simple to get into, and pay on time. Their rates are a little better then mammas. And I'd also check out some of the ones that fill 100% of your inventory to use them to close out the chain to fill everything. Bluetime, RealTech, BudsInc, Hurricane Digital Media, and a few others will fill 100% (these are just the ones I know of that pay all the time off the top of my head). Out of them Bluetime has been paying the best, but it could take a month to get in after you sign up.

Thanks fireklown

AdSense won't accept me because I use active x. I won't drop it because it makes more money than everything else combined and Ive heard about poor performance $$ wise from adsense in the celebrity field as you say.

I wasn't aware my site would be classed as "adult".

Maybe I need some advice on what makes it adult.

Cheers

Pichunter

Providing links and pictures to and of nude photographs is definately considered adult
