    Hello all webmasters, what do you do to earn profit for your forum?
    Do you sell it when the site got crowded?

    Google AdSense is the best for the forums. I don't own any forums. But, I know how to run a forum! So, AdSense is the only one in my view.

    I have to say adsense sucks when it comes to forums, unless you get massive traffic, adsense is best for blogs etc. If you have a successful forum in a good niche you can earn alot from advertising, adsense is just a back up IMO

    Hmmm... Learnt a lesson from you. I didn't own any forum and I will never start a forum. But, in the case of DP, I came to know that Shawn earns more than 20K through AdSense. Would he earn more than that if he chose some other plan?

    Yeah! And its really great! I myself, clicked 3 ads today. When I am reading the first post, My vision is getting diverted to the ads and I just read them and when I find them interesting, I click them. So, its really good now. This forum will be one of the DoFollow forums.

    If you goto Webmaster Tools & SEO Tools

    then click on Tools and look for visual page rank, then type in the url and it will tell you what links are no follow and which are follow

    I'm using Adsense on my forums for some months but to be honest isn't a big deal, i prefer sell ads directly...

    You Can Feel Adsense Earnings When You Have A Good Daily Traffic! Otherwise You Will Say That Adsense Sucks!

    Yeah, selling ads directly is better, so we dont need to wait until we reach minimum payout.
    but for blog user with less visitor like me, i prefer PPC site.
