Hi, I just started a forum which has very little competition and where my expertise is. I am hoping that there will be good number of visitors and posts very soon once I make the forum Open.

I would like the people's suggestion on -

1. What Ad Types of Google will do well in Forums?
2. What are the best placements for various ad types?

Appreciate your suggestions on this.

Remember though, ads on forums are not welcomed by users if too imposing, it may be easy to boost revenue short term, but that is no use if people desert in droves.
