    Best non-invasive ads

    So I was using google's adsense for a while, but they discontinued our service since my website often features "adult" content. I really liked their ads because they were very non-invasive, text only, and they didn't follow the screen or anything annoying like that.

    In your experience, what ad services pay the best and are the least invasive? I'd LIKE something that would pay me via paypal, but that's no requirement. So anyone know of good ad/affiliate programs?

    Google adsense (I think thats what its called), they are relevant to your content and they can be re-styled to fit your website theme in a better way, no flashing CLICK ME messages, just easy to read content+links.

    I think they pay through cheque (they send it every quarter iirc) worth you looking into anyway, if not the best way is to go through an advertisement agency but you normally need to prove you get X amount of uniques per day, but you have the benefit of approving what adverts are shown on your website.

    Hope this helps!

    Re-read the first paragraph of the OP's post.

    If your site is actually pulling in enough visitors to make any kind of money off advertising, then hold off on the ad programs and go 'old school'. Contact potential advertisers in your niche with a nice pitch and some stats and make them an offer they can't refuse. Likewise, advertise your advertisement space (heh) on your site so potential marketers are aware you have ad space open.

    When you talk with potential advertisers, be enthusiastic and open about what kinds of ads you do and don't accept and for what price.

    I make a nice side income from ads on one of my sites and almost all of the ad revenue comes from people who have approached me or whom I have approached and offered advertising.

    If your dead set on an ad program, I would suggest http://buysellads.com but I doubt you would be accepted simply due to the subject matter of your site.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks drew! That does help a lot. For now I think I'll stick with the old-school way of seeking out my own companies to host ads with. I'll check out buysellads, though! Thanks
