    I have 1 ad at the bottom and I am only making about .10-.25 cent per day. If I place more ads does that increase my revenue? Do they only pay based on clicks or page views as well?

    I've been thinking about adding adsense to my page. I would also like to know what revenue is based on and is it worth it or not?

    Ditto - if your trying to make money off adsense with a forum you aint going to make much. Unless you have a highly trafficked forum. Most successful forums have anywhere from 4-8 different revenue streams.

    I make $500+ a month on my forum using adsense with an average of 100K+ pageviews a day... I positioned my banners on the second post of each thread and below the "post quick reply" button... I also have a 720 banner in the forum index and forum display below the navbar... that's it...

    My forum is in spanish, and from what I've read, ads in spanish are worth less than ads in english...

    I don't recommend using image ads... only show text ads, they're worth more. I changed to image ads the last couple of days and I got more clicks but each click was worth shit...

    Man you should atleast have 5 different revenue streams. With that kind of traffic you should be in the mid to high 4 figure range.

    What kind of advertisers can I use? :dunno: The problem I've found is that most of the traffic is from central and south american countries... I think most advertisers and not interested in that kind of traffic :wtc:

    my adsense revenue has plummeted the last couple days. i hope it's only because it's then end of the month and adword advertisers have reached their monthly spending allowance

    If you do adsense after first post it's decent.

    Also adsense at the bottom of the thread is a good spot. 300x250 usually has the best payout.

    This is how I have mine setup and it works pretty well.
