The Sidebar Ads: A Race between the Tortoise and the Other Tortoise

Halfway through the month-long experiment comparing AdBrite and Google ads, they are nearly tied. Only a few cents separate the two. The downside is that both are pathetic thus far. I did go in and reduce the price of a direct ad on AdBrite to account for the fact that it will only be up approximately half the time. For $2/day, you can have your ad in the sidebar. Just click the “Your Ad Here” link and you go straight through to purchase. If anyone actually does this, this will probably tilt the scales to AdBrite. That is what I like about their system, that someone can place an ad specifically on this page if they so desire.
