Advertising on CraftServer, replacing AdSense

Recommended Posts

AdSense has been placing strange, large sized ads recently. I don’t see that trend ending any time soon.

 

all along AdSense also managed to tweak their algorithm to pay less and less despite heavier traffic. The forum costs the same amount to operate every year regardless of what AdSense wishes to reward for re 

 

CraftServer had a “No Self Promotion Policy” long before I took ownership. Seems like this is a good time to consider a fair way to self-promote. How would you like to have the opportunity to buy targeted ad space right here on CraftServer? Several areas are available from which to choose:

 

1) the top banner.  Visible to all who visit CraftServer at the top of every page.

2) top of home pages. It’s the ad above announcements, and above the first unread thread on summary pages.

3) after each first post in a thread. 

4) side bar. Under the most recent threads section.

5) footer. The bottom of every page

6) in your signature line

 

The first 5 allow me to report your views and clicks activity in a sort of performance report so you will know how well your ad space has performed.  A test ad for a member in the footer region collected >10k views and dozens of clicks in the first week of the trial. 

 

You could combine your ad space with promotion codes, specials, etc. to maximize your ad investment. 

 

Thoughts?

I am relatively new to this forum and mostly just read posts.  Regardless, I think it's a great idea!  I love that this forum has always been focused on educating, learning, and sharing.  If the new ads are a way to keep this great service going, then I am all for it.  Personally, I really love the idea of links in people's signature lines.
