    Hello all

    How do you suggest me to monetize a Forum?
    I have a Pictures/Videos section where I post Linkbucks links, but I don't think is enough.

    Please share your experience and suggestions.

    Adult Forum, that's why I would skip Adsense cause of this content
    Or I am wrong and Adult Forum + Adsense can live together ?

    No adsense wont allow it. You could try alternatives to adsense though and see what happens. It all depends on the amount of visitors you are getting though.

    I am not sure about that. You will have to look around the forum. I have never used anything but adsense so i cant help you out on any specifics for that. If your forum is for free porn you will have an extremely hard time converting them with porn sites. But you could try dating sites like AFF or something like webcams.com

    Your help is appreciated, I would like to know if they pay for clicks or signup to their website.

    Which one? AFF does PPC but you have to convert a certain amount of visitors or they will turn you into Revshare

    I was visiting a forum and I saw this ADS when I browse the various threads/sections of the forum

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Above on the right there is a button to " SKIP THE ADS "
    Anyone can tell me if this is profitable?
    And how it works ?

    I dont know any forums using webcams.com. But i dont know any adult forums at all. And yeah something like that could be profitable. I havent done any adult stuff so i just know the basics of it. Yes they have to signup to webcams.com You get paid $25 for every free signup. But a cc is required.

    Yeah like i said something like that could be profitable. But there is a lot of competition in your niche so i have never tried it.

    Free crackers will allways work. And your visitors might be hungry too so maybe some adult ads sauce with that.

    But indeed it would be quite hard to get much profitable since adult stuff have really low conversion.

    I bet would be same in IM if there would be free sites all over places offering free stuff :p

    But thank god there isnt

    Why don't you try this? http://www.blacklabelads.com/ It's like AdSense but for the adult biz. Have fun and I hope you rake in some good money!

    Also : AdultFriendsFinder, Abrite (might need to verify for this one)
