Question strategy for using bottom banner space

I'm getting so few clicks on bottom banners I'm wondering if it is even worth it.. Would it be better not to have any on the bottom and just focus on the above the fold banners? What kind of banners would work on the bottom? I've tried a few different strategies - linkexchange to advertise my own site (or an affiliate program like amazon.com), mailbits trivia, amazon.com, linkshare iwin.com, eBay, etc.

What works for you?

I'd definitely suggest using a searchbox at the bottom of the page. Use one that lets you pre-fill search terms. (I use searchtraffic.com.)

Don't give up on the bottom area of your site. Our bottom area ads deliver about a $1.50 CPM. One thing you may want to consider is bringing people to the bottom of the page. We do this on some pages by listing our most current info at the bottom and other methods so that people visit the entire page. It certainly is worth trying.
