Hi all

I'm currently playing with ads on the forum.

I've been tinkering with the setup for most of the day but the major facts are

1) The Ad network provided by media.net needs to be on The Money Shed for 15 days before the ads it provides are more relevant. ie the more traffic sent from TMS the more relevant and UK focused the ads so don't fret if you see adverts for 'Amazing £30 Weddings'. With 29,000+ sessions and 141,000+ page views a month hopefully everything will even out!

2) I've got some VERY nifty software running on the forum that makes it so NO ADS appear on the mobile version of the site.

3) If you visit the site as Guest rather than a registered logged in member you will see more unintrusive ads.

Yeah I'm still playing with placement (was actually messing around with it on the blog last night).
The 'Golden Zone' if usually a banner at the top, one to the right and one embedded in the content.

of course you are free to use adblock if you wish ;)

Aye the mobile version of the site gets a different ad arrangement than the desktop version.
The good thing is that you didn't know there WERE ads running on this site as it shows that they blend in well instead of you being hit with 1001 popups when you enter the site!

But you don't get paid as much right? You get paid for ad clicks, not ad views.
