View Full Version : I know why cpm rates are up.

Now that the warm weather is here people are moving away from their computers and going outside more, for leisure.

Traffic for me has been down networkwide for a couple of weeks, yet rates are up. Less inventory = higher sell through.

How is eveyone else's traffic doing these last few weeks?

I am about the same...

I don't know, nothing has really changed for me.

Our rates at www.gagsplus.com (http://www.gagsplus.com) has been up, we have been live for almost a month now. We launched our site to about 10 million people via email advertising about 3 weeks ago and our traffic has been steady since April Fools which is why the site was built.

However we have also started shifting away from other April Fools stuff into more just gag/prank items. Check out our site and there is an affiliate link at the bottom

Did you make this buy through an opt-in provider such as PostmasterDirect, or did you let the SPAM out of the can?

Please tell me it was the former.

We've seen the opposite (traffic up somewhat, rates down somewhat). However, it's improved slightly during the past few days, now to the point of where it was in March, and slightly better than that today. Still, nothing to write home about yet.

I have five sites so I can gauge traffic better then simply using one site. Besides many of my sites have been sufficiently listed in search engines and many have not been promoted for a while.

Search engines are usually a good indicator of general daily web traffic. Sites that are being currently promoted are not a good measure of web-wide traffic.

I'm getting $0.72 from fastclick. The site is FreewareWorld.com. I'm getting a lot of default impressions though.

traffic is way up for me (all time high) and so are ad rates and commission sales and of course bandwidth costs LOL
