    So Many AD Companies, So Little Room!

    Need help guys, this new design I am getting will basically allow for the following ads:

    1/2 leaderboards
    2 468 x 60 banners
    2 sky scrapers
    1 300 x 250
    Popups also

    I have Burst, FocusIN, MaxOnline, Advertising.com, 24-7 Real Media and Casalemedia.

    I basically have two sites, one is a forum with over 85,000 members and it is always very active, the other one i just a wrestling site but gains 12,000 uniques daily and 100k impressions.

    Right now Im using focusin, 24-7 and Maxonline (none of the others). Im earning about 1.8k from focusin and 24-7 with a cpm of $0.30 and am earning a lot less from maxonline because they keep taking money when i serve defaults.

    What would any of you suggest I do to maximise revenue for the site i terms of who I use and what creatives. I am even willing to pay someone for help and possible set up

    Casale and Burst should pay more than focusin, 24-7 and maxonline.

    Are all those ads going to be on a single page?

    I'm a bit hesitant about using Burst because it's only 50% contract so I wont make as much as with other ad companies.

    These ads will be on all the pages..

    What do you guys or anyone else suggestion, a hierachy of some type for my creatives would be useful

    I can't stand sites that are clogged with ads. Luckily I had my popup blocker on.

    Don't you just love free internet games ?

    Most ad networks have rules against over-displaying them like that.

    Dude, I think you might ruin your community with all those ads.
    Seriously, I think it's very excessive. Also get rid of the adware installation popups.

    1 728x90 - Casale Media, defaulting to 24/7
    1 120x600 - Burst Media, defaulting to Casale Media
    1 468x60 - Burst Media, defaulting to someone else.

    But no more, expect maybe ONE pop.

    ...and please double check the placement rules for each of the companies you use.

    Specifically,

    1. Whether you can place specific ad units below the fold (do the users have to scroll vertically to see an ad).

    2. Whether you can place a particular size ad unit from a particular ad network more than once on a page. For example, can you have 2 468x60's from Focusin on one page?

    3. If you use one networks ad units on a page, do their Terms of Use allow you to use multiple ad units from other networks?
