My question now:
How much revenue could I expect. I know that forums don't perform very well. But how well do forums perform as supplements/addition to a well performing unique content site?
Any experiences and/or numbers?
If you site was about the selling of widgets, I would think that adsense would not work as well. What is there to discuss if you are just trying to sell a widget?
We introduced it in the places suggested by Google and got VERY low ctr. It ended up that we pulled it as it was affecting our overall ctr across the site which can mean that your pay decreases as your conversion sucks.
Aside from anything else it also seriously hacked off our forum users, took a bit of time to implement too.
My 2 cents - forum yes, adsense on it - no.
I don't understand what you mean by link back. If I add a forum to my website, it will have the same navigation bar as all other content-pages of my website so there will be plenty of backlinks to the site anyway. Do you mean links in the user's posts? But why would that help me in particular?
