Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
My problem is that right now there are only 200 members from the same geographical area and the site is really of no interest to the rest of the world.
I'd love to try Adsense on it instead of peddling "Widget Tossing Books" from Amazon.
Has anyone tried Adsense on such a site?
If so, what are the chances of setting off RED FLAGS at G and endagering the rest of my account?
Would it be worth asking G on this one?
A factor could be whether or not you are known to the 200 potential visitors as the site owner and recipient of any advertising revenue.
Yes I am known and that is partly the basis of my worries. For that matter 3 of my neighbors are members of this league as am I.
But I am hoping to hear that G has thought of all of this and understands as the ads would be very well targetted and therefore I estimate a good conversion rate.
Right now even if I got a canned "Go Ahead" response from G, I don't think I would risk it unless I heard from others that they've done it and it all works out.
My reasons for even considering it are because "Widget Tossing" is very HOT right now and getting more popular by the day. We estimate the league to have thousands of members in the next 2 years. If the daily visits keep on rising steadily, I also plan to add some "Widget Tossing" informational content which would then interest the rest of the world through SE's and would be perfect for Adsense... that is if I do it at all of course.
While you are thinking about it, sign up with a decent CPM network like TribalFusion or Casale Media etc. You can make all the slots the right size and rotate between the CPM ads and AdSense anyway to reduce ad blindness. If you still feel nervous, never rotate AS in!
