    This was a great article first off.

    I think it would have been even more beneficial to ad links to some of the hacks or style mods you used to make the changes. Or maybe even included a few quick instructs. I am an adsense success story. I made enough my first time out to actually get a check from google and the clicks keep a coming. Thing is that all from one ad placement on my front page. I'm hoping to double my monthly revenue (ok so im pushing my luck) by adding ads in other places that are within googles terms of use. Below posts before the quick reply, etc.

    I've only skimmed the article but I didn't see the archive mentioned. I make more from the AdSense ads in my archive than I do on my board.

    You are absolutely right, the archive is a great place to use adsense. I guess I need to update my article to reflect this better.

    I totally agree with this. The number of page views for my archive is small compared to my forum as a whole but it still generates more revenue than everything else combined.

    Putting AdSense after the first post is nice but the Archive is even more important.

    hey Ted

    how does the second post advert do? would you say you make a decent amount from it?

    i would agree with your placement on the left...

    Does it work? Well, it brings in some revenue... if it's your only adsense placement on the page it will bring in a nice amount of revenue. Will you see a ctr that is anything like what your archive has (or even a skyscraper on your page), probably not. In my experience it's a good thing to have, especially for guests, as it brings in a little money here and there while also offering an incentive for people to register and sign in.
