Another suggestion - try AuctionAds.

I have found this to be very lucritive on my forums. It out performs adsense for me. (and I do ok with Adsense)

I've tried auctionads all this month and made 10 bucks...before I tried it...I'd wake up every morning and already have 10 bucks sitting in my adsense. I know it takes time to get autction ads going but it really depends on your site as to whether you can run those and do well. People come to my site b/c they already have everything and they want to learn how to use it...so yeah...

Then it sounds like you might want to change your keywords around. I wrote an aticle about My tips for AuctionAds. Maybe that will help you out.

How do you do so well to get so many members?

Is that search engines that bring in all these uniques? or is it just the word has been spread widely?

Im not sure if this was meant for me. But its a combination of things. Search engines play a big part of it, but so does promotion and word of mouth.

don't you get a ton of your members from adwords ? seems every phrase I search has a vbfaq ad on it ) google, msn, ask, alexa...lol


I tried auction ad's. I've made 1$
I do have a few referrals, but I think it's because I run a webmaster site. I make Much more with adsense and so do most my members. Have you tried AuctionAds ?

I think it's a great program for niche sites. I've left a small ad on one page, but I wont add much more.

I've started working with cj.com and have done well with it.
I make on average, $40 a day with all my sites.

I think that most forum owners with that many users would love to know ourselves exactly what the 'perfect storm' was to make our forums so successful, so we could replicate it over and over!

We trialled Auction Ads in our footer (which only made about $30 a month on adsense) and it made us almost $120 the first month, great we thought. However, that soon dropped each month since - until this month - we barely had $4 in the first 10 days.

I make about $15 a month on my forum that has about 2,000 posts. These are not google ads or anything, mostly sponsorship and subscription purchases.

That is exactly my experience.
3 Google ads, one at the top, two below the first post and out of over 20 thousand pageviews and over 1000 posts a day I get maybe (on a good day) 5-6 clicks, which makes me (on a good day) one dollar. I never made more than 30$ a month from this particular forum.

I tried everything already, different sizes, colors, placement and styles of ads and nothing seems to work, people simply ignore google ads on my forum.

Then I tried auction ads, people clicked them, but no one ever bought anything. After a week and not a single cent I turned it off.

So, ok, it took me a long time, but now, after well over two years, I realized there is no profit running a forum and I am running it just for fun, while paying all the expenses from my own packet.

I do not even want to think about monetizing it anymore.

Depends what is your forum about, but I would guess, you get somewhere between 5-10 dollars a day, if you're as unlucky as I am

Btw. it's weird that you have 12 thousand reg.users and only 180k posts. I have only 3 thousand users, but 250k posts. It looks like you should give your members more incentive to post.
