Hopefully, I will have a page ready tomorrow or the next day that just might generate some traffic from strangers.
(That means that it's "almost ready" which probably means that there are delays of 40, 50, 60, or more hours awaiting me in real life.)
Can someone direct me to the appropriate threads which will give some useful advice from people who have had...
-- Recent experience
-- Long term experience
-- Broad industry experience
-- Experience with different advertisers
-- Any other relevant experience
...both good and bad, with respect to the practice of placing an ad banner on a page ?
So far, all my pages have been totally paid by me, controlled by me, and written for my benefit (which is fine, no shame no pride) but if I'm going to get involved with a 2nd and 3rd party, and there will be one dollar involved, then all the rules will change.
The scheme isn't brilliant; pathetically simple in fact.  User clicks on a link,  downloads the info, and  closes the page. Best I can tell, copyright's all clear (I did all the content myself) and it's all common daily practice across the world.
I want to start out really small, really simple, and I want a way out in case things develop ugly.
So anyway, what does a zero-clue newbee (like me) need to know about ads on a page ?
