    Hi

    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.

        Yes it can be done I have done myself on one of my forum sites, and also it would not look to bad there is plenty of room down the sides.

    They definitely can. But even being as greedy as I am, I would prefer forums to stay ad free smile

      Misha, I think it would be asking for trouble..and a lot of disabled accounts!

    Lisa you lost me. Why disabled accounts?

      Misha, I thought they meant putting the ads directly into our posts...how else would having adsense in the forum benefit any of us?

      That's why I mentioned disabled accounts since some threads tend to wander into TOSable waters

    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 smile

    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.

    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

    Cheers smile

    Guess you guys must have gone a little ad blind. There are already ads on some forum pages. wink  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...

      Truly frightening, the idea of earning from posts! If people are learning how to write better hubs, are participating in site activities, does there really have to be another way to earn, another place to put ads on this site?

    NO to ads in the forums.

    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'.

    no... ads in posts would be messy... very very messy

    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.
