I'm looking into adding ads to my site. Seems like Adsense isn't an option, and I want something efficient, not some poor-performing ad service. I thought of affiliate ads, but I wonder if I can use "bad" words when doing that?

Yes you can, no problem here are some examples:

- I had a bad day yesterday
- That was a very bad thunderstorm
- Looks like she is having a bad hair day
- He has a real bad voice for singing
- I wonder if this post will conjure up some bad groans

The OP is stale-dated without a response so I figured this one is better than none at all? At the least maybe the OP can elaborate more and we might be able to come up with something better.

Hehe SevenCubed I think he's coming at this from a slightly different angle. A post I've seen on other sites recently....

...my view is this if you want to allow people to curse then fine - freedom of expression. But if you think it's going to impact on your ability to make money clamp down on it.

..Simples! :)

So your question was: Do there exist viable ad services that don't require a G-rated site?

Quality ad services, at least as good as Google, which are okay with at least the words mentioned.

don't exist..
so..
looking for
which are okay with at least the words mentioned.
is redundant, reason ? see above..

The payout levels from all the others are going to be waaay lower..and many of them are also intrusive and make your sites and pages look like crap..

If you have the traffic and subject(s) that direct advertisers might be interested in ..try selling space directly..

Some aff networks would be OK with what you have..but we don't mention specific networks here..just search for affiliate networks..and look for the ones who accept "adult terms*" or "adult content*" or "explicit language*", or who promote "adult products*" or services etc..<= your and my, and anyone else's, definitions of what is meant or encompassed by those terms* will vary, as will "industry" definitions..

I see. Well I'm not interested in MUCH lower payout rates. :/

But seriously, some of these words are even allowed on television... What a bunch of nonsense.
