Our experience mirrors yours, Ramon. One of our clients had
20,000 visits in one day from a post to an online bulletin
board which referenced the client's Web site. The client
decided that the site had a well enough targeted audience to
place banner advertising.
Our most productive banner on that site is getting CTR of
2.9%. We will need 690,000 impressions to equal the
effectiveness of the one post.
I think that text references for advertisers and sponsors
are much more effective than banner ads, but I suppose the
issue of service and ad accounting makes that less
attractive to sites, which accept advertising.
