Not really a big board with these stats ( Threads: 1,631, Posts: 5,773, Members: 3,226, Active Members: 650) but I figured Id chime in. I get around 22k uniques per month, adsense is decent, it pays the bill. Worst part is it seems a majority of the users are from south america or asia area of the world, Which doesn't really pay out adwise. Looking at running an extra banner at the top to just sell off to some monthly sponsers. Im still on shared hosting, usually 5-25 online at a time, fair amount of posts. Forum is a few years old, but I started fresh when I setup my vb forums last september.

I have adbrite on another site that I co-run, which does pay out (net-60 my first check was $34). But they go in and analyze your profits later, and take away for the traffic from countries that don't speak english it appears. Had over $600 for the next payment, but its been knocked down to under $400. =/

Ive heard that adgage is good for ads, haven't checked them out yet.

I've just made it into big board territory with 520,000 posts and 10,000 members. I have 6,000 visits a day with 60,000 page views a day. Using Adsense, Amazon, Affiliates and fundraisers the board earns a modest amount a month. The fundraisers are the biggest thing.

We give away prizes donated by companies that benefit from the site. Prizes usually are worth $500 to $2000 each. And we generally have 7 or 8 prizes to give away.

We only do the fundraiser once per year, in the fall.

You have a verry nice site! You should considder AdWords feeding of traffic, I think it will work great for you.

I've been working on a secret money making hack for vBulletin, it's accepted with google and works great so far.

My forum is online now for 1 week and I have 60+ members and aprox. 400 unique visitors per day from Google AdWords and aprox. the same amount of traffic from own SE listings via an SE targetting system I ran on the site before I installed vBulletin.

The site makes aprox. $10 per day from Google AdSense + has sold 1 link via AdBrite $3 for 7 days recurring (real cheap, but it's a start).

:banana: Wow its interesting to learn and see exactly how well you guys are doing compared to other websites.

Discussions like these are great and really put things into perspective in terms of where I should be financially and what my site should be earning.

Well I run a somewhat hugh site here in the Bahamas. Roughly a little over 10,000 members, good demographic hits and somewhat an average of about 5,000 - 6,000 unique members daily.

We offer email services, profiles and entertainment resources + some other stuff.

Monthly google ads range from anywhere from $285 to $500 due mainly to our photo gallery and forums. Once we re-introduce our Voice/Webcam I am hoping that it will increase.

We charge for different ad sizes on different pages for local businesses and entertainers/promoters having local events. This is where the bulk of our funds are generated which ranges from $75 for a small banner to $1200.00 (3 Month ads or sponsor programs).

I think Adsense is probably one of the worst ways to monetize a forum. Some of you have traffic levels that should not be leaving you in the hole every month. You need to look at some alternative forms of monetization. I know it is easy to throw up adsense or yahoo but that is rarely a way to make any money with a forum.

It really depends on how you use it and for what niche you are using it. It can be great extra source of income for your forum.

If you can make 5000 euro extra per month by installing AdSense, why wouldn't you. Since that is possible if you have 100k+ uniques (per day) on your forum.

There are ofcourse better ways to make money with your forum, but AdSense can provide a solid extra source of income.

Yeah but we don't live in a bubble where you just ad adsense on top of something else. You might have other means of generating income or ways that don't harm the user experience or impact it in a different way.

By that logic, pop-ups and pop-unders also could generate extra revenue, but I would not advise most people to use those to monetize their forums.

I think I made about $4-$5k last year from my biggest forums. It's a gaming forums (low PPC) with 300k posts and 10k members. I hope to be in Big-Boards within 6 months. I make most my income via subscriptions and selling points. I get about 2000-3000 uniques per day.
