hello :)

Very low values (around 1-1,5$ daily) from a forum with around 10.000 page views daily, after heavily optimizing layout and ads and all.

Without optimizing, i was in the 0,3-0,5$ range

My forum is very decent. If you use ads in the right place and right color it should work great.

Sticky me if you need some help. Include some stats and info about your forum. But it works only if you have a very large forum.

I have some forums that do pretty well with adsense (and direct sold ads to advertisers).

I don't show adsense to logged in members, and this seems to work well.

Actually the optimising part is important. I have doubled, at least, my income from the board by SEO'ing it as hard as I could.

Now I rank high and quickly in google for posts and google pumps in maybe a 1/3 of my visitors sometimes.

I use xmb board, but am amazed that SEO is the LAST thing forums board designers seem to think about. Standard code and structure is totally wrong, with things like BB code script at the top of the page etc.
