I'm using google adsense in the footer of my threadspages, and I was just curious on how much other's get paid per click.I have around 7000 page impressions/day and a clickthrough rate of 0.1%

I only have 4-8 clicks per day, but each click pays $0,50-$1,00! This seems high to me...or is that normal ?

This is great it basically offsets my hosting fees.

I made $3.00 last year, I was pretty proud of that! The only reason I keep it up is because it keeps them crawling my site for content.

Wow, that is per month

I seriously need to explore this potential revenue stream further I could be looking at almost my whole server bill being covered by adsense

I made $250 although I clicked on my own ads a few times, and my brother thought he was helping me out and clicking wheever he was online. They booted me.

Hi,

We did about 250K impressions during the first month (actually slightly less than 3 weeks) and made almost $100.
The CTR on our board is very low (0.14%), but on the site it is much better (3.35%).

As this pretty much pays for our bandwidth costs, I am quite happy with it.

There was some bitching when we introduced it (mainly because I stuck on the sidebar which I introduced at the same time), but it seems to be accepted now.

Sanuk!

that's what I would do, is a sidebar. Hmm, I might have to put a sidebar up first to break my users in slowly

I have mine load in the sidebar as the third thing, right below Quick Search and the WOL box. This way, it's always seen on pageload without the need for scrolling. On showflat, I have the sidebar disabled, so I show it in the area between the threads and the Quick Reply box. I figure it should get a lot of attention there.

I am using the channels to track to see who is using more registered or unregister users.

I have the registered users ads in the footer (includes) and the unregisterd in the ubbt_unregisterdednav.tmpl I am trying to figure a way to omit the one in the footer include when they are not logged in. I have gotten emails from google because I have the add on the page twice...

Hi,

"On showflat, I have the sidebar disabled, so I show it in the area between the threads and the Quick Reply box. I figure it should get a lot of attention there."
Interesting idea, and might want to try that myself as well.
How do you switch of the sidebar on the showflat page?

Sanuk!

PS Love the avatar

As in the sidebar instructions....

Put
Code
$config['iip_call'] = 1;
after the require stuff in any php file that you wish to exclude the sidebar. Which avatar do you love?

"As in the sidebar instructions..."

"Which avatar do you love?"

I bet it must have really like you doing that
I know my parents' cat would have shredded both my hands for trying

Sanuk!

try enclosing it in a statement as such as

<!-- <? //UBBTREMARK -->
<!-- echo <<<UBBTPRINT -->
With Modifications from <a href="https://www.ubbdev.com" target="_blank">ThreadsDev.com</a>
<!-- UBBTPRINT; -->

if ($user[U_Number]){
<!-- echo <<<UBBTPRINT -->
googleaddsense
<!-- UBBTPRINT; -->
}
<!-- echo <<<UBBTPRINT -->
Visit the <a href="http://www.ubbcentral.com" target="_blank">Infopop</a> Support Forums
<!-- UBBTPRINT; -->

you will have to play with above of course but you get what I am doing.

Didn't work.. It appears many tags don't work in the includes such as $tbopen/$tbclose

I tried to put it in the footer template but that didn't work either.

did you put the $user global in the send_footer() function?

I assumed ya did?

find in ubbt.inc.php

function send_footer() {

global $user, $configpal, $config, $theme, $thispath, $VERSION, $ubbt_lang, $tempstyle, $timea,$querycount,$zlib,$fheader,$Board,$mysqltime,$debug,$debugprint;

and make sure the $user global is there.

mine works as follows.. in footer.php I have..


<? //UBBTREMARK
// File Version 6.5b4
if ($user[U_Number]){
echo <<<UBBTPRINT

Wow, thank you google Adsense!

I wish I would have done this a few years ago, the results are amazing. I am sometimes making over $30 per day, on average about $150 per week. Say goodbye to hosting fees out of my pocket

Attached is the Google Preview Tool, for IE only. What it does is allows you to preview all the sites that will display in your google ad, you can also launch them from the popup window and bypass the typical click through.

Save it as a .reg file on your local computer and then double click on it and run it. Then restart all instances of IE. Now there will be a new menu item in your shell called "Google AdSense Preview Tool".

I would like to place my Google adsense code within the 'forum instructions', but I only want the ads to show for unregistered user. How can I accomplish that ?

Thanks!

Hmmm, not a bad idea!

I tried it, but I think it's too much of an overkill right now. Fitting the ads within the forum instructions would be a much 'cleaner' solution.

Using Josh's meta mod, I added different meta tags, descriptions, titles, etc. for each seperate forum I had. This made the ads more specific to the content.

I'm currently making about 30 dollars per day from google adsense on 2500 unique visitors per day, and that is on one tall add on the right sidebar only. Soon, I'll be adding it to the other 8 sites that use my nursing forums and hopefully, can get that up to over 150 dollars per day.

This is in addition to my paid banner ads, and I only added it at the urging of another site owner who was doing so well. I'm glad I did!

Doesn't work as well for the UK - mind you I guess it also depends on the subject involved - all I ever seem to get is either Football (soccer) tickets or Forum Software LOL


Fans Focus - Focusing on Fans of Sport

(Okay - mainly football (the British variety wink at the moment - but expanding all the time....)
