Google AdSense

Postby TorbenGB » 13 Jul 2006, 17:25

Would anybody mind if I were to add Google AdSense in the right margin of this forum? It would be text-only ads, placed in a narrow column along the right side of the screen, concerning "related" stuff. If implemented (and used), it would help fund this website. Vote if you care. Nay-sayers please share your objections.

Is this all about retribution for people in charge at managing the site :?:

I will delay my vote until I have an idea of what are the goods for the community to be expected from Google "AdVices".

I prefer asking Google when I need to. I don't care letting it enter by the toilet room window when I am occupied at something it don't give a shit. Unsolicited information is just crap or a kind of drug when you turn into a mouse-click addict. I'd rather go at these times.

Image I would say that the value of this site is quite out of the money universe (kind of Star Trek utopia). I am one of the growing fewer who think that money can't buy things that really matter, like friendship and health.

$ I still fail to see what good could be expected at letting Google take part of this tiny community.

This is my own and single opinion and I will observe what others have to say on the subject before I vote.

I would mind because I am a super-high resolution "my desktop real-estate is MINE" kinda guy, but If it makes the difference between site or no site, then it has to be done. I might actually stop visiting due to mouseover ads or ads that make sound, but making posts longer (because they aren't as wide) would bother me. Another option I dislike is the software that throws links onto specific words on a page (like tomshardware.com used to have), especially when the ad is for a different word that is spelled the same, but at least those ads don't take up additional desktop real-estate. What about ads-by-google at the bottom of the pages? I could definitely deal with that as long as there weren't I-frames or whatever containing forum topics (I'm not a fan of scrolling in a smaller area in addition to scrolling the whole page). Even near the top would be better than the side in my opinion, because then I can scroll past them and they don't cramp the width of the topics all the way down the page.

Let me just follow up on this thread with a brief statement:

There will not be ads on this website, anywhere, in any form. (At least as far into the future as I can reasonably imagine. You will likely be asked again, should the need arise.)

I have not forgotten the above post. Right now you do see ads, but they are at the bottom of the page and text-only. This is a test that I am doing, to see what kind of exposure this gets, if any at all. If you have comments about this, please let me know in a kind way :) by posting here.

As far as I am concerned, if those ads may help you hosting this forum, we can consider this is a fair tribute we owe Google anyway.

And would that be enough to cover costs?

Torben, the ads at the bottom of the page are just fine with me. This is the nicest way to place ads, and is definitely the cleanest, and most un-obtrusive way of doing it.

Thanks again for keeping up this forum.

As I've noted earlier, this site is hosted along with other sites I own, so there are no actual costs of hosting this site. But there are costs for the hosting overall, of course. Whether these ads will earn anything at all is something I can only answer after this has been running for a while. If it's pointless, then the ads will be removed again, of course.

In order to get clicked those ads have to be seen and there is only one way to do that. We have to keep the forum as buzzy as possible with refined gossip :wink: and Apple could be a target of choice. :roll:

Update: Whoo-hoo, the trial of Google Adsense has made me so rich! I've already earned a whopping $0.61! :shock:

...so now I'm advertising for my hosting provider instead. DreamHost has and they seem to be one of the few honest businesses out there.
