Re: Adsense after First Post 1.1

mmm?
This is only supposed to put one ad in: it goes after the first post in the thread
The Adsense TOS allows you to have a max of 3 ads per page

Any interest? And if so, what ad networks should I also support?

Re: Adsense after First Post 1.1

From what I see this mod is pretty good as it is ... if you want to make something with adsense I would recommend going to other way of making share revenu mod wink so users can type their adsense pub and channel id and then ads are displayed wink

I personally don't like revenue sharing mods that much, IMO they're a silly way to get people to post on your forum. tongue

Re: Adsense after First Post 1.1

I have to disagree with you tongue
A. It encourages people to post by essentially offering them money: IMO it's not much different than sites where you pay people to make posts in your forum. You won't get a real community if people are only motivated to post by the thought of money
B. If someone gets mad at your site normally, they can get your Adsense account cancelled. If someone gets mad at a site running a mod like that, a lot of people get Adsense cancelled tongue

I can understand doing it for a few members who have contributed a great deal to the community already, but I don't understand doing it for anyone who knocks off a few posts (mmm, fun function for a spam bot: try and see if a forum uses known revenue sharing mods and if so try using them)

In any case, I won't be making a revenue sharing mod wink

Re: Adsense after First Post 1.1

That's why you have to limit for only members who make posts ....

It is really a system .. If you open a topic you get 50% chance that your ads will be displayed there ... now if topic is not interesting no one will post there ...

hint : one of the fastes boards has revenue sharing and it is very succesful and we don't post there to make money wink

I'm not saying there are no cases where revenue sharing is a good thing, but I think that there are not a lot overall.
I also think that revenue sharing is a mod best used in an already established community to reward the userbase, rather than to attract members (which is how I see it used much more often)

Re: Adsense after First Post 1.1

- You can pick what post to put the ad after (of course, if the user chooses not to view posts that high, the ad will be hidden from them)

Could you give the ability to add 3 adsense blocks? (with the possibility to exclude groups for each block)

I recently heard that the best settings on a forum are:
> a leaderboard or a banner just before the topic
> an adsense block after the first post
> a banner (468*60) after the topic block

That mod would considerably increase our revenues smile

Re: Adsense after First Post 1.1

Have you added an option to include links units? If not, that would be a great addition.

Not for this mod, although it's a good idea for a general advertising mod

I assume that would just be a change of the ad type? Give me the list of new "names" and what they mean and I'll add them in

Re: Adsense after First Post 1.1

Not what I meant tongue
I can get a list like that from here:
https://www.google.com/adsense/adformats

What I need is to know what the correct "tag" is for this stuff (since I need to specify the format in the javascript)
For example:
160x600_as = 160x600 Wide Skyscraper

I don't have an Adsense account or I'd do this myself tongue

Re: Adsense after First Post 1.1

Great mod, works like a charm. Although for some reason some times when the page loads it's just blank.

I only have one request, would it be possible to set it so that adsence is displayed after the last post, just above the quick reply?

Thanks again.

Kind regards

Re: Adsense after First Post 1.1

I'm just after installing this mod on my forums: http://www.irish-rallying.info/forum and it is only displaying the ads after the first post in topics with only one post. Basically if there's two posts in the topic it won't display the ad at all. Any ideas ?
