Digital Point ads outgrowing AdSense

    If you guys got AdSense account banned, then it is time to switch to Digital Point ads! All your low paying niche sites can now make more money.

    For example, you can make 2 cents per click with your wallpaper and video game niche sites instead of 1 cent.

    Not likely... it doesn't work well with crappy sites. It doesn't bring advertisers to the site necessarily, it's a tool to sell ad space to existing advertisers you have. So if your site is terrible and doesn't already have people wanting to advertise on it, there is no reason to use it.

    So would the site need to be like hmm.. lawyers, plastic surgery niche, etc.? I know those are super high paying niche for AdSense.

    No, the site would need to have people that already want to advertise on it. If your site doesn't have people that specifically want to advertise on YOUR site, it's completely pointless. It's a bidding system... the site owner sets the minimum bid, but if you have no one that wants to bid for space on your site to begin with... again... pointless.

    Some advertisers pay more than $5/click using it here for competitive keywords... but we still have a minimum bid of $0.10 CPC for our site. Unpopular keywords that no one cares about would go for that. Popular ones (like "web hosting" for example) are far more expensive since advertisers are bidding against them for it.

    Can you define "crappy" and "terrible" in this context? Is it a matter of traffic, content, something else?

    I suppose in this context it would be a site that doesn't have advertisers wanting to advertise on the site specifically. :)

    So.. something about advertisers wanting to advertise on your site specifically? Hah, im kidding, just found it funny the amount of times you had to say it.

    Either way, I am planning on giving it a go if I run into problems with AdSense. Its all okay at the moment, but its happened before for no apparent reason, so I am keeping digital point as an alternative, considering my site is growing fast and I should be able to gain some advertisers.

    It's not really an AdSense alternative. You should use it in conjunction with AdSense or other ads. If you have a quality site of interest to advertisers, use the DigitalPoint code and put in other ad code as the backup. Then market your site and direct potential sponsors to DigitalPoint.

    If you do sell ads to sponsors, DigitalPoint Ads can serve them intelligently, getting you the highest rate from among competing rates. If there are no sponsors, AdSense or another agency can serve its ads.

    DigitalPoint Ads is closer to BuySellAds or Google's DoubleClick for Publishers than it is to AdSense. But I find it far easier to deal with.

    To sum it all up i guess people who actually have a good amount or traffic and people who actually want to advertise on site can use digitalpoint ads and people who have low traffic and less advertisors willing to advertise then they arnt going to earn via digialpoint ads

    Exactly... which is why the system itself has the ability to fall back to the site owner's AdSense ads (or anything else they want) when they have no advertisers to fill space. So worst case scenario (if they sold no ads through DP Ads) is they made exactly what they made previously with their old ads.
