    If you have a very general site with lots of traffic. What kind of ads could you run? The topics are very mixed.

    AdSense might work well for that. Traditional banner advertising can also work well.

    If you can focus that traffic into specific areas, you can target those specific areas more.

    For a general audience I would go with a pay per click program like Adsense.

    If the pages are about specific topics without being sales oriented, then let Google figure out which ads to show on each.

    Yup, AdSense or general seasonal banners (e.g. Valentine's day). Use SSIs and you can change the banners nice and easily.

    I already have adsense on the detail pages. I was looking for something that could be put in the header. I tried adsense in both spots but it looks spammy. I'll need to think about this one some more.

    I run Valueclick ads and rydium ads, both are geotargeted so not only do people get relevant ads to whats displayed on my page but they also get ads that are for their country of orgin.

    Try a different size of AdSense. I've got it on the sides of my pages (the skyscraper) and it doesn't look spammy at all. I've read in other threads that the ugly box option might pay more, but I don't want to scare people away from the merchant that's also on the pages...

    Remember that you can also change the colors used in the AdSense, which helps a lot! Done properly, it can even look like it "belongs," on some sites.

    That said, for content sites, FastClick is nice and consistent although you won't be retiring on their money (unless you've got a gajillion page views, anyway)!
