I've just written a complete discussion forum hosting service and i have google ads on there but would like to know other sources of advertising revenue I could place on the forums that people create. Any ideas ?

Thanks.

You would probably do good selling text links because people like to pay for a mass amount of sitewide links to help their search engine rankings.

You could also perhaps offer forum hosting for $5 / month for an ad-free version or to allow the forum owner to use their own AdSense client ID instead of yours.

Aznx, I can't seem to access your site - it just times out. And I'm confused what your question is.

Hi - you can list any empty advertising spaces you have on your site on << url snipped >> this site allows your advertising space to be sold to the highest bidder, you can sell banner ad's text links, you can even sell magazine ad space too if you have a publication.

Anyway I hope this helps generate some extra revenue for you
Best of luck

Re: Forum Advertising Revenue 80 80

Hello,

finding ads for forums is a little tough, alot of advertisers do not accept forums for advertising, and the ones that do usually do not offer good payout.

I also have a forum hosted by a company called ForumDrop, but one of the things they do is specialize in Forum Advertising.

Good luck with your search.
