Thumbnail image for Infolinks vs Kontera for contextual in-text advertising (split test)

TechPatio is around 14 months old/young and back in the days when I first started this blog, I tried out contextual in-text ads. Initially I went with Kontera but I never got it to work so I had to do Infolinks instead. After some time, maybe a few months I guess, I decided it wasn’t […]

I don’t know what to call this, a bargain, a steal? Either way, I’m pretty sure that $0.33 CPM is rather cheap for either a 468×60 upper right corner header banner ad or a 160×600 skyscraper middle right banner ad, am I right?
