    Really glad to see this review! I’m about to evaluate ad plugins so am really happy that you’ve helped me kickstart that process.

    BTW, I found two others to consider and if you are so inclined a follow up review of them would be great! (hint, hint :)

    - AdRotate – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/adrotate/
    - CrankyAds – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/crankyads/

    @jean Didn’t know about the issues with AdRotate; thanks for pointing that out. One thing to consider about CrankyAds; it’s a plugins that front-ends an ad server and it appears they take a 25% cut on all ad sales so even though I mention it I’m not sure I’d ever use it unless I simply misunderstood their policies.

    I was just about to mention crankyads – Yaro Staraks startup. I haven’t tried any of the others, but I’ve heard of two of them.
