    Presumably because they can't sell their banner space to anyone else. The banner ad market is in a dire state as advertisers have realised that the things simply don't work. Right now it's hard to give the things away on most sites.

    Moral of the story: if you're going to start a site that relies on banner ads for its main revenue, don't.
    Please don't visit my lame personal website, www.webhamster.co.uk. Half the time it doesn't even work!

    They use DoubleClick though... all the sites with a lot of hits (at least 10 000 a day I think) use doubleclick. And a lot of people use it too.

    10,000 hits a day isn't a lot. 10,000 unique vistors maybe. Anywho, they turned down my offer to buy every ad space on their site for 6 paper clips and a half eaten snickers bar.

    I tried to contact them, because I want to advertise on DevShed but the e-mail adres on their advertising info site wasn't valid.

    We use Winstar Interactive as our ad agency... they have been going through some troubles lately and were bought out by another agency.

    Their e-mail address may have changed. I'll have to look into this.

    Thanks for the heads-up.
