What's my best way to monetize the site? (it's in a small niche industry). I'm thinking:
- Google adsense at the bottom of the page.
- *cough* ad network *cough* on the bottom of the page, to drive traffic to some sort of affiliate site.
- option #3?
if a user is referred from another site ( ie search engine or direct link to a thread ) I display one block above the thread as well.
Something to remember:
Make sure you correct all url's to threads to be referenced in the same manner. This way the google adsense displays the right ads every time.
Sure you'll tick a bunch of users off but so long as you warn them about the implementation and explain why its necessary you should come out OK.
On my next forum I'm having Adsense running from the getgo. It may slow things down initially but there won't be a big whine-fest to dread down the road. People dislike change more than they dislike ads.
