Which is curious based on a recent (23/9/98) ICONOCAST posting about
effective CPM comparisons. I am sure ICONOCAST wont mind me posting this
part (Hey Michael, please dont sick the dogs on me) which appears to be
J.P. Morgan research.

* Effective CPM - While Yahoo! claims its CPM is "solid in
  the mid-twenties," J.P. Morgan arrived at an effective CPM
  of $4.36 for Yahoo! [effective CPM is total ad revenue
  divided by number of pageviews]. Here's how the leading
  search engines, plus DoubleClick and 24/7 Media stack up:

--------------------------------------- -- Effective CPM Comparison for Q298 -- Network/Portal Effective CPM* --------------------------------------- InfoSeek $8.06 Lycos 7.12 Excite 6.69 Yahoo! 4.36 DoubleClick 3.72 24/7 Media 3.17 --------------------------------------- Source: Sep. 1998 J.P. Morgan *See text


Now, the same ICONOCAST also had more info like estimated % of page sold and other fun things. (note: I am no way related to ICONOCAST, Business 2.0 or Michael, however, if you want to spread the rumour that our moms are best friends so be it)

So, what does this all mean? Well...would I rather sell 20% of my inventory (that is forever being 'refilled') at $20 a unit or 50% of my inventory at $10 a unit.. hmm... you do the math...
