Default Hey, how long the ads been at the bottom of the pages?

Is the site changing from ad free to having ads? How long has that ad been down there?

They've been here since august 1st at 12:01am. They were smaller and down so low that you couldn't see them but last night google sent me an email with some restrictions about how far away from "content" ads could be placed and what size of ads could be at the footer. Last night I moved them up higher so you may see them now.

They'e click ads, and Myself/Daryl don't get a penny unless they're clicked on. Obviously if we were putting up ads to make money they would not be located at the bottom of every page.

Because of tax reasons, and becoming incorporated (liability protection for us) I have to come up with a valuation of the site from a 3rd party. The 3rd party informed me they need four different stat numbers to come up with a value. The server uses Awstats, we also have google analytics installed, the 3rd is google ads (bottom left ad) the fourth is adsdaq (bottom right ad).

The ads will be down there until the end of this month. The two current programs that have been in use show an almost 15% difference in traffic. The valuation company will take the four sources and average them, and that is the traffic they will use.

I know it sucks with ads, but I thought putting them all the way under wouldn't raise an issue with anybody. They will be gone soon though.

thanks

Perhaps I am mistaken and it wasn't included, but it seemed that one of the benefits of coughing up the $12 was to not see that stuff.

If it wasn't included, perhaps it should be? Let the peons look at them.

That means the number I need would not be accurate because it would leave out traffic from subscribers.

The ads are at the very bottom of the page, they shouldn't interfere with using this website. And ads for members and subscribers will be removed at the end of this month.

I absolutely hate forums with ads, and even though they're pretty profitable when placed where people click, its not worth it in my opinion.

Wasn't me. I have 4WD Hardware's inventory right in my driveway. Maybe it was a moron that tells you he wants his trailer back when he doesn't and he was clicking on the ad to make sure it worked properly.


(Tell us who it was.)
