View Full Version : Will WebsitePublisher have ads on ever?

If the page views a month on website publisher totalled over 150,000 will you put ads on it? If you do could you possiblty refrain from putting them on the forum pages, because I would proberly slip away to another forum, as I expect many people here would...

I think a couple of google-textbased-ads wouldn't hurt anyone.

I'm not sure.

I'll definitely put ads on when it reaches 300k per month, 150k though -- we'll see.

Right now its at about 90k a month btw.

WOW! 90k already!

Games2Go is only getting 50k on its current traffic, but since september it has gained over 450% page views, and it keeps going up so I might get 90k in November if I'm lucky...

i dont think that many people would leave the forum because of an advertisement

im sure most members have connections that can handle the extra 12k a banner would take up

Also - you cant expect a forum to be 100% free. Even small vbulletin forums can be heavy on the bandwidth :)

There's no way I'd leave because of a few small ads. I think that is being a bit dramatic ;)

Though, if it were my site, I would definitely be putting some ads up at 150k. I'm sure the gains would out-weigh any loss. Though I guess it depends on how strapped you are for cash ;)

I would be OK with google ads, I like those, I think site's look professional with them on.

I don't mind ads anymore. After a few years of running my own sites I've finally learned that the web is not free, especially when you're running a busy forum.

I don't mind banner ads at all, it's those flash popups and the ones that just scroll across the screen.

Ditto Mikes... I don't mind popups, but I don't like those flash thinks that you can't turn off till there movie is finnished and cover up the screens content...

If the money raised from them means Chris can pay people to write tutorials for us I want the immediatly!

I agree.

11-09-2003, 11:44 AM
I wouldn't think anyone would leave because of ads...

11-09-2003, 12:04 PM
The first ads I add will likely be Adsense.

11-09-2003, 12:10 PM
Searchfeed would proboallywork well too..., you could proboally use it directly with some of your content...

Adsense is no problem at all. You can't go wrong with it really.
