Adsense in Forums?

    What would ya'll think if Hubpages linked the forum to adsense and gave a 50/50 split to the hubber on the "New Topics" that that hubber started?

    So, if you started a new topic and for the traffic that that topic got, you would get adsense revinue from it.

    Is that a good or bad idea?  Why and/or why not?

    I don't like the idea of advertisements in the forum. Can you imagine how much more spamming that would cause? I don't like this idea.

    bad idea, we would have nothing but 10,000 new topics and no actual forum interaction.

      That's a good point.

    You think that it would cause spam?  How so?

    How about 100% of forum revenue to hubpages and a larger split of hub revenue to active forum hubbers.

    Besides the forum topics are already listed on GOOGLE.

    Where do you think HubPages get new writers, besides the referral work done by some Hubbers?

    The forums are linked to GOOGLE's search engine, to draw people to the topics, and bring in more writers.

    I have encountered links leading to other forums, on other websites, on search engines.

    Fortunately, HubPages requires membership to post in the forum. smile

    how many hubbers actually click the ads? I would bet it is almost none, except maybe the few trying to cheat the system. There would be no real revenue gain from forum ads and it would dilute that ad prices because the quality of impressions would be lower. Advertisers want their ads shown where they get exposure and clicks not where they will be watered down. Perhaps a sponsor page where someone from hubpages gets a company that is looking for only brand recognition would sponsor the forum categories that would have people from thier target audience in them.

    your opinion .

    remember any business is for profit.

      This is simply not true. There companies(businesses) that are non-profit, which applies to some advocate groups, who fight for civil rights and there is charitable orgranizations which are also non-profit.

      So, not all businesses are for profit. smile Just to let you know.

    not so good of a plan ... most of the people in the forums are hubbers ... hubbers who could easily have *their* ID in those ads, meaning they could inadvertently click an ad they own and get banned by adsense.

      Exactly, and aren't we inundated with enough ads already?

    Like I said the only way ads in here would make sense is if they are solely sponsors ads, for example in a couple months the relay for life will be happening for breast cancer research, we could have sponsor ads for the american cancer society here that is solely to generate awareness and encourage donations not to profit on clicks... I also know that these foundations often will make small payments to companies who participate in increasing awareness, for example Susn Komen foundation has an ad budget that allows them to place ads to generate awareness which in turn creates donations...

    anyway enough rambling point is forums are not for profit and should never be.

      I think we should put up toll booths on the forum and charge people to post. Some of us here (including myself) would wind up pitching in enough dough overnight to feed the poor for a year. smile

    Guys - we have had adsense in the forums for as long as I remember. Go to a specific forum and scroll down.

    Probably too busy fighting to notice them. big_smile

    It's in the bottom of sidebar. But not on threads.

    Instead of adsense better to get some other advertiser like some PPV advertiser (Castle media etc) that will do. Adsense is the only earner on hubs so getting it on forums is like risky deal.

    who needs adsense in forums,  here is a copy paste from one of the wonderful hubbers errr spammers here on hubpages maybe he can just set us up with adbrite  LMFAO

    "Another publisher network that allows you to earn money from blog s adbrite. It also offers CPC adds like google provide.It pays 0.3$ per click on add But that only on each valid click by an visitor.
    Sometimes Google adsense disaprove your application to join them because your site may be under construction or doesn't contain enough content in it.But instead of waiting them for start you can join adbrite and start earning as it will also trained you as an good experience as an add publisher which will help you a lot future using adsense network."

    Are you kidding, where do these people get the idea that this crap is going to generate anything other than spam flags

  16. skyfire profile image74

    Adbrite's ads are not relevant and using adbrite here will not help at all.

    I know ..lol  Read the post I was making fun of a hub I came across promoting adbrite and you can't even understand the guy/girl who wrote it

    Yeah digital point stopped it, no one eanred more than an occasional $1 every few months, and there were problems with people spam clicking.

    Personally I don't see the point!
