Really, I'm just wondering how much people think I could make if I added some moderate ad-hosts. Maybe a single banner on the side or top, I'm not really willing to make the site ugly for profit.

Here are some stats:
2,500 unique hits a day
50,000 page loads per day
3000 member forum

Since july 2007, we've had 42 million hits, 88 million page views and 412,000 unique visits.

Any modest estimates of possible revenue based on these statistics?
I think the best way to find out is to test it yourself....whatever people tell you could be right or wrong each person is different. I have someone with the same amount of traffic killing his site with adds and making triple what i make while i have less making (fair) not enough but i rather that way then filling up a page. Best way is to try yourself each person is a different case

I suppose I really could test it, but I've always been anti-ads. I think they kill the visual look of sites. To test them I'd have to leave them up for about a month and I'd rather not put my users through that if it won't be worth it.

I don't make anything yet. I'm trying to get members to donate or subscribe. Also, I'm trying to find an ad system

Anyone got any info on how kontera is for revenue? I'm currently making ~$20/day from adbrite with an alexa rank hovering around 6000, up by 3000 in 3 months.

I dunno, I am struggling to keep up with over 500,000 pageviews per day, and yet only have 500-900 online at any given time.

I guess it depends where your traffics coming from and what they're doing when they get there.

I was making xxx now its xx on google. Since december. It sucks and I find it all rather insulting that I give them 21 K in page impressions a day (really more cuz I use 3 ads on a page and 3 count as one) so its like they get 0ver 60 impressions on there ads and they wanna give me 2$

Google is on its way out for me! I'll be deleting all but the navbar ad. There are plenty others out there trumping google right now!

Less see how they like the 40 K ad impressions a day they aint gonna get from me..

such as?

i use adbrite, but they are very unreliable. banner ads will disappear....ads make it through even though you haven't approved them (including half naked women when you have selected "only family friendly ads"), etc.

are there any truly reliable, profitable CPM programs out there for sites in the 10-20k pageviews per day range? Thanks!

edit: oops sorry. Didn't realize this was in the "big boards" section. I think i'm more in the middle boards range lol. regardless, if anyone has a suggestion, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

The economy as a whole isn't spending much on advertising right now and everyone's Adsense earnings are down. Theres tons of factors that can effect your adsense income, such as your niche, the time of year and some other things.

Make sure you pages are optimized as possible, you've got the best locations for your forums, and you're getting relevant advertisements delivered.

And i'm earning $xx.xx on my blog thats not even 2 weeks old
