Is there any plans for revenue sharing Adsense for within the forums, If not may i suggest this feature as it would be beneficial to us all.
You mean putting adsense ads within our posts? I think that would be a horrible idea! Thankfully, I don't think they could anyway.
Should have posted it here if you want to suggest anything or point out any problem, Report a Problem or Suggest a New Feature
They definitely can. But even being as greedy as I am, I would prefer forums to stay ad free
LOL I think OP meant a centralized placement with revenue sharing, like it is is done on other places on this site. Still not too happy with the idea though
the reason i ask this is that the forums rank high within the search engines results. We should be using the content within the forums just as we do within our hubs and enable us to generate more of an income I think we will get more money from the forums than the hubs themselves.
O my god can not spell no more I am going to bed its now 6.09am UK and the birds are tweeting dam
good night/day everyone
Ads can be put here with some tweaking...why not
Dont think that will hamper readability or something when it cant to Hubs.
of course here to we are discussing topics...but only in an non -montonous , non-hub form.
I strongly feel... the management should think about it..
A blended,,,, small rectangle or leader banner on top or bottom, if not inside posts (that will be uneasy) will be a good idea
Guess you guys must have gone a little ad blind. There are already ads on some forum pages. Personally - I would not want to see ads on the actual discussions.
Sorry, we have enough meaningless posts as it is. Imagine if people could earn money from their posts...
I totally agree to no ads on the forums or individual posts. Can you imagine how many would be posting - whatever - thinking that will rack up the bucks? The forums would be abandoned in short order I'm sure.
Or a whole lot of newbies would be posting rather than writing before they figured out they didn't really know what they were doing yet as they attempted to cram in words for Google recognition. Or they'd get frustrated wondering why they hadn't received a whopping check the second month - then, bye bye to them too.
No matter how you slice this proposal, it sounds like a huge vacuum to suck out community 'connectivity'.
The question is - do you want to earn less from Adsense?
Ads in the forums would actually be VERY detrimental - the more impressions that you have with no clicks lowers your click through rate. VERY FEW hubbers would click on ads in the forums, thus increasing your impressions, but lowering your CTR.
I wouldn't want an extra 500 or so impressions a day with no clicks...that'd really lower my CTR and my hubs would be smart priced - no thanks!
I am a member of several adsense sharing forums and I choose not to participate for this reason.
It be helpful if you expanded on this a bit. What is smart pricing? What level of CTR attracts smart pricing etc.
I had what I thought was a high CTR up until month ago which has now declined by two thirds. In the same period my income has dropped despite doubling my visitor numbers.
Also if we are getting more ads per page now won't that affect CTRs?
I've heard that smart pricing usually occurs below a 2% CTR. It allows ad purchasers to save money by targeting lower traffic websites.
This is a good article on it (more info then you could ever want!)

Smart Pricing is why I'm not a huge fan (like some are) of social traffic.
Thx I will check it out. I still wonder about the extra ads hubpages are using. I googled 'smart pricing' and someone on digital forums reckoned the quickest way to get out of smart pricing was to reduce the number of ads on a page ie the ones least likely to be clicked.
