$500/mo from adbrite

also ~$50-100 varying a lot for a Jlist affiliation

covers server fees anyway.

p.s. my site isn't an official "big board", it just gets lots of traffic (~7000 on alexa)

250.000 USD per month is not money?

Digitalpoint was earning in 2005 at their vbulletin forum, $10.000 USD per month.
Now same people say they are earning $40.000 per month just from adsense, which is pretty possible. I wouldn't mind to receive that amount....

--------------- Added 13 Mar 2008 at 14:05 ---------------

in my vb forum i have 100k unique visitors per month, 40k registered members and 8 milion hits per month (webalizer stats). Active users are more than 5.000...
From adsense i get about 4-6 usd per day, which i think its very poor... don't know how to increase click rate...

Stick a whole page add in between the most accessed forum/content/download etc.. only as a trial and see what happens? perhaps change the adds to different topics?..

something else i believe we have to keep in mind...

adsense search the page for keywords to show related ads

if there's no words on the page don't expect to have good add = no clicks

like volitian said most access page and make sure they are good content and that should help or else you'll see the same boring ads

Thing is, if you have low CTR, you'll earn little no matter how relevant the ads.

If you don't have relevant ads, you'll earn little no matter how hight the CTR

Finally, Google is on an all time low these days, they got really cheap on CPC.

You may want to try textlinkads.com (no I don't work for this company). I have them on my site and it's pretty decent.

just about cover costs through adsense but ad blockers are a major issue these days. Not a big board as such more a busy board.

what annoys me is some advertisers supplying graphical ad units only. A text link that I can pimp is far more worthwhile.

I'm finding a lot of claims made by some people to be crazy, especially the ones with only ~500 members.

Currently, I run an ad-free forum, and use a very good host (unlimited bandwidth for about $20 a month). Some people are claiming hosting costs 200 a month for 500 active member forums (how?). The server has gone down maybe once in 2 years, and otherwise runs very smoothly.

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?
