Our forum is unusual in that it has only a few hundred active members, but averages 40,000 posts a month. We just hit 500,000 posts this year and will probably be at 1,000,000 by March. We lose an average of $20 a month.

My board/club has averaged about -$120 per month over the last two years. I have a little over 1,100 members, and about 275 active. Our only income currently comes from a few paid sponsors. We are slowly making more money, so hopefully things will turn around soon.

I just started mine about 9 months ago, and traffic is steadily rising (still extremely small compared to some people on here):

Uniques a Day: 50-100
PageViews a Day: 600-1000

We just crossed the 500 member threshhold 20 days ago, and are closing in on 600 pretty quick (avg'ing 4 new registrations a day). Our net profit is about $20-$40 a month right now off the forum (from $0 not even 40 days ago). Only guests see ads, and we use adsense. I think the advantage we have though is that we are a financial site; some advertisers pay as much as $2+ per click which is great. Our blog and stock articles though bring in double what our forum brings in with 1/4th the traffic, it's weird.

Main Stats:
-581 Members (135 Active)
-6,448 Posts
-954 Threads

Cheers,

Losing tons of money, but just joined with Clicksor and its showing great promise, payouts are already almost twice that of google/ypn. Check it out if you want to test the waters, but i'll warn you know you wont return to Anything else. Clicksor has been the best by far yet.

ok. so like everyone's covered most of range of possibilities... which is great and very useful (the point being..it is possible to at least not be in the hole every month).

so let's say someone has a new board and growing with all the required minimum whatever to make money.

HOW would you recommend that person implement their ads for the first time?


two parts:
1. what PLACEMENT are your best performers?

ie:
-- after first post?
-- after last post?
-- top of forumhome?
-- left/right column skyscraper banner
-- header?
-- pay donations? (placed where)
-- etc.

(this is the stuff that I would most helpful and love to hear discussion about at this point, imo)


2. and of course, what ad network do you use?

-- adsense? mirva? YPN/overture? monthly subscription banner ads ? advertising.c0m? other?


3. then we can compare across size and demo stats more meaningfully (imo)


anyone?


I just launched a tiny board for fun and a few friends to do their thing a few months ago, and haven't tried any monetization yet as it was just for fun. but monetizing is fun too. Knowing I'm nowhere near big-baord status yet doesn't mean I don't want to optimizse or ramp-up as best as possible.

so, like.... where would recommend one start?

How are you on big-boards with these stats?
