searching for advertisers

I'm looking to attract new advertisers for my website but don't have the time to "pound the pavement" searching for them. Does anybody know of any websites that have businesses who are looking to advertise?

I would suggest Google AdSense ... it's really easy to set up, and you can customize the color schemes, etc. It has worked reasonably well on my site, though the income from it has dwindled significantly in recent months. I think the dwindling income has to do with my site itself, though, and not a general AdSense related thing.

Other than that - there are "banner exchange" programs that I'm sure you can sign up for too. I was happy enough with AdSense, though, that I didn't bother looking into them, so I don't have much to report there.

Adbrite isn't bad, either. They're the ad company started by the guy who did ... either that, or they bought that company. Can never remember.

The paucity of answers to a October 11, 2005 question about how to sell online advertising to specific (non-competitor) organizations seems to indicate that going through a large aggregator like Google makes the most sense.

I used to use Commission Junction ( before I went no-ads and they supply banner code that rotates on its own (per page load last I recall) based on commission sales, some of which last well beyond browser closure via cookies, plus you can pick which advertisers you want, and have per-company track stats, etc.
