Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I got a mail from google today, that i was violating their program policies.
I had some mature content on the site, and they picked up on that.
Could point out the next 100 pages with the exact same content, that runs Adsense, but of course that would not help me :)
What is the best alternative today. Im looking for something just like adsense, that will let me have mature content on the site.
Hope some of you have some ideas. Thanks
Anyways, I guess the answer to your question is dependent on the nature of your material. If it's border-line, there are some ad systems that would accept you, but to be honest, adSense is really the best one of the bunch - which is why my 'find another topic' comment is only partly in jest.
will google ban you because your DOMAIN contains adult content?
However in less-serious cases Google will allow it as long as ads aren't displayed on the specific pages that could be considered to violate the policies; in fact that's the agreement I have with Google on one of my websites. I'd definitely ask permission (and save the email somewhere safe) before doing this.
Kongen: My best advice is to look at other successful sites in your niche and see what they are doing for sponsorship.
Set some simple terms and conditions and start emailing web sites with a standard pitch. You'll likely be surprised by some of the responses.
Just to give you an idea, I sent out an email to 30 sites and sold one contract for a year of just text links for over $200. Not bad for a day's work.
Remember it's a numbers game. You have to cast your line a lot sometimes to snag a good one.
And don't be put off by people who don't understand that adults are adults. Nobody makes more money on the web than the adult industry. Obviously, there's a market. If you're what I think you are, just risque or racy, you'll have plenty of people wanting links and/or ads.

[edit reason] changed the p word to adult [/edit]
I must say that affiliate and selling them myself is not my first priority.
I like the ease of Adsense, i do not need to do anything but paste the code.
I've signed up for Adbrite, but after 24 hours, still just displaying default adds...
Maybe it's a problem that my site is in NON english?
