I’ve been working with IDG to monetize StorageMojo through ad sales without much success. The latest iteration of the process you may have noticed: the ad that covers the page until you click “close.” They pay OK, but they aren’t the difference between hamburger and steak.

Which, BTW, you are welcome to do as soon as you like. Please don’t suffer through them on my account.

I think I was told that the ad would only appear like once a week per viewer, but I don’t know if that is correct or true.

Anyway, I invite StorageMojo readers to comment. What are the right limits for ads on StorageMojo?

Are the “roadblock” ads – I think that is what these coverall ads are called – too much? How much advertising is OK?

The StorageMojo take
I make no apologies for being a capitalist tool. But I also don’t want to drive off readers either. So let me know what you think.

If anyone has a line on a low-overhead ad network that pays reasonably well for a high-quality audience, I’d love to hear about it.

Courteous comments welcome, of course. Especially on this topic. Wes, thanks for the tickler and yes, I think I know where you are.
