As some members might have noticed, the forums have recently adopted adsense to generate some revenue from visitors.

Testings have been made and the adsense feature has now become available to active members on boot-land.net who wish to get some revenue from their participation on the forums.

------

It is possible for each member to assign his own adsense identification on the member user profile and all the topics he has created in the past will also display the adsense code for visitors.


This might be a good way to sponsor your daily coffee or even the internet monthly costs while having some fun.


-----------------------------------------

How to setup?

First you'll need a google adsense account (free) - http://google/adsense (or login using your gmail account details)

Then you grab your pub-id that will identify your ads.

To get this id you'll need to visit the respective page:
Your adsense page --> My account --> AdSense for Content:

Copy the pub-id, here is an example:
pub-9260152184556742

Then visit your forum profile page:
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?...rCP&CODE=01

And paste the pub-id at the "Google Adsense Client Code" box.

Save and that's it.

-----------------------------

Some usage warnings

- Don't click your ads or the account will be banned by google
- Don't create numerous annoying topics on the forum or you'll soon get suspended by moderators.
- Don't encourage others to click on your ads as google will ban your account
- It's no good trying to trick the google overmind, they'll know if you're not playing fair and square.

You can however do some promotion of your work at external sites like Youtube, OSnews, other forums, etc, etc, so that more people get aware of your work and visit your promoted pages.

-----------------------------

This is all automated and the revenue will be deposited directly into your bank account using USD / EUR or any other popular currency that you prefer.

Please remember that this is still a beta functionality and I would appreciate if more people tested this feature and reported some feedback, please let me know your opinion.

Hope you enjoy this feature and good luck!

Glad you like it.

Please sign with adsense to try this out otherwise it won't be easy to tell if it's working or not.

At this moment, adsense for the topic author is only displayed on the first page. On subsequent pages (very long discussions), no adsense is displayed - this is something I'm working to solve. But on the other hand, outside visitors only visit the first page of the topic to retrieve the relevant informations.

Also, would be nice to assign this adsense revenue to members that reply on question topics - for example - the member that replies and gets a lot "thank you" would automatically be give the adsense rights if the topic author is not using adsense.

Well, a work in progress.

cheers.gif

Sorry, my fault.

I've added this setting on the classic skin as well, please confirm that it is working.

If you're using the classic skin then you won't see any adsense being displayed at your topics.

Since this is meant for outside visitors, I'd recommend logging out of boot-land.net and then visiting your topics (as a guest) to see if it is working or not.

Or temporarily use the newer skin for testing this feature as the classical skin will not include adsense to allow members use this alternative skin without any publicity.

Hi, some updates.

Logged members now have the option to completely remove adsense from their view.

On the left column there is an option that says "Remove publicity" just below the classical skin.

--------------

Whenever testing your adsense settings, please be sure to log out in order to view if it is working or not.

Hi Nuno,

After clicking "Remove publicity" the unwanted Centered Layout changes to Left Align thumbsup.gif

But now: How to Switch On the "Publicity" ?
There is no link supplied to do this,
but one can click Classic skin and then Undo everything with Web 2.0 skin link at the bottom of the page.

Then you get the publicity again (but also the unwanted centered layout)

Don't worry, I'll later create a new page with clear instructions. The centered layout changes were also corrected and now should be well displayed for everyone.

There is a generic link that allows you to switch between skins, the only thing that changes are the last two digits.

Classical skin = 27
Web 2.0 with adsense = 38
Web 2.0 no publicity = 40

Here is an example link, just edit the last two digits as needed:
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?...1&skinid=27

--------

I've also had confirmation that adsense is depositing revenue on member accounts but the bug that was mentioned by wimb was removing adsense for IE users and this might have been the reason for a low performance.

Anything else needed to done/fixed?
