I have a new hub (my first) with the name dating_site. I won't post the link as it is adult and while MY content is PG-13 the ads are XXX! Often times when opening the hub a full page pop-up appears advertisng a sex realted product. Is this good? Do I make money from it? I based my hub on a search term (dating_site) that gets over 1.4 million searches a month. Will this help me get traffic?
Unforunately we do not currently have a flag that differentiates between mildly and grossly mature content. We run AVN Adult ads on all mature content, since AdSense and other providers are prohibited on that content.
At some point in the future we hope to increase the granularity of our flagging system. In the mean time you can make money from those ad if you sign up for an AVN Ads affiliate account or you can turn ads off entirely on the hub if you'd prefer not to have them.
When I signed up for AVN I got a large html code. Do I just get the 6 digit SID number from that and enter it in the spaces in my affiliate settings? I did that and now when I click on my hubs it says, "gathering data may take up to 30 minutes" Is this normal?
Yes, just enter the number after "sid=", one for each location and size.
Just to set your expectations properly, the CPM for AVN Ads is pretty low (compared to AdSense for instance).
Well a big porn graphic appeared and my rank went down to 40. I wonder if that was the reason. thanks for the info.
The ads will not affect your hubscore, but yes AVN Ads are for adult sites.
Looking at your settings, it looks like you used the same SID for each of the three sizes. Instead you need to set up three different ad zones: 1) a banner, 2) a wide skyscraper, and 3) a 300x250 rectangle. Then enter the corresponding sid for each zone on your affiliate settings page.
You have the wrong size ad in some of the zones, which is why you are seeing "Gathering Data" some of the time.
Oh, so we need to set up all three zones? I thought we only had to set up the 300x250 zone sid? Hmm, I guess this why I've made .01 on AVNads LOL
You don't have to setup all three zones, but you definitely don't want to put an sid that corresponds to the wrong size into the other zones. Of course, you'll make a little more money with all three zones ...
