I'm on track to do about $60 in revenue this month from AdSense - 99% of that being from a single small add in my navbar template. This is my first full month with an ad in that location and my traffic is steadily increasing so hopefully my revenue will also increase.

I used to make some money at a big board but sold out and created a smaller private one. The big board made alot of money all by subscriptions. While similar sites were selling subscriptions for alot of money the membership was not growing. I figured that this was due to high subscription prices and started a site purely as a test to my theory. I ran 3 subscription packages at $5 a month recurring $15 every three months non-recurring and a $25 for six month package. The site took off to about 2500 subscribing members in a years time. . It was alot of money. And alot of headaches which I gladly walked away from it. I now have a small site with 180 members and about 145 are paying subscribers. Its private and the members have been together for almost 5 years. I profit about $600 a month and once a yaer give most of it back in raffles.

I have had a recent jump in members and my google impressions are up to about 30+k a day

I have 172k+ posts and 1100+ members. And since july I have given google over 716,000 page impressions for a measly 133 bucks! 60 of that is all this month and 444,000 page impressions just this month. I really dont think its worth it considering it looks like google puked all over my site lol. I tried CJ briefly but was getting NOTHING.

Im on shared hosting but looking to move to dedicated soon. So when I move Im going add a few more payed mods and start up memberships! That seems to be the way to go!

I only get about 12 clicks a day though.... I need to improve my Meta....I think.

Oooh yeah, my site just turned one yr old and I have been a vb site since may.

I MUST be doing something wrong with Google/Yahoo.

We get on average:
  • 2500 Uniques per day
  • 25,000 page views
  • 110K hits


google is giving us a whopping $1 per day....:tired:

site makes about $1000-1400/month but we also pay our members to post but that only costs about $50-$100/month typically and it's not even out of our pocket, we've got a site sponsoring that pays for member posts.

Hi!

Could you please show us your site? As it's probably not talkonlinepoker.com?

Best Regards,

HOW would you recommend that person implement their ads for the first time?
My forums ads are very often custom made - just to run on my forum. The CPM is VERY high.. its not competitive with other Internet banner opportunities. we run NO generic ads, no ad agency's serve our ads we serve them ourselves. We reject ads that aren't specific to the core topic of the forum..

If you are in a NICHE market as I am, perhaps start by giving AWAY ads to key players to make your self look cool and attractive to other potential advertisers in the same NICHE MARKET.

or use your banner ad area to run competitions - give aways - that might make people pay attention to the banner area.

As more (paying) folks come aboard slowly creep your prices up... start to charge the freebie customer..

We try to stay number one in our topic field but it is hard...

I find things snowball, success breeds success..

I do a LOT of hard sell work to get the ads to come in.. I pound around on foot at 3 & 4 days trade shows twice, sometimes three times a year in the USA and Europe to sell ads for the forum.. most of the work is persuading folks to drop print ad budget to come and spend it with us instead.

That's my story, I am sure everyones' is a different one..

it feels good to give something back...

I've just been take, take, taking on this forum...
