Hi

I seem to be having trouble with the FORUMDISPLAY integration - the code seems to be working as there is a correct layout at the top of the forum, but the google adsense banner does not show.

Try removing the google_alternate_ad_url = "http://www.yourwebsite.com/collapsible_ad.html"; line to test...

Remember however if you have multiple areas for which you are showing adsense on one page, but google doesn't have enough ads to fill all the spots based on your content, then that area will be blank. Give Google a little time to optimize it's ads for your content, then the ads will most likely show unless your forum content is so obscure that there are not many advertisers in that area.

Ah thanks Mark, I realised it was because I already had a landscape banner at the top. Removing it allowed the FORUMDISPLAY banner to work. :)

Very useful info here, thanks for the tutorial!

great information - thanks for sharing this NeutralizeR...

I have tried out most of the ideas, and have settled on using the forumdisplay ads and the two for search results

forumdisplay is working great, but for some reason search results just comes back with collapsible ads all the time - I cut and pasted the code exactly, so can't figure out what isn't working

:) try different searches... it'll be enough to see the ads once...

everything works fine except the postbitlegacy part i inserted the code but itz not displaying?

Excellent post NeutralizeR

I have a small problem though.... For some reason no matter what I try, only one add will display on any page.. If I add a second one anywhere it will not appear..

Any idea what that might be?

EDIT: nevermind I just now saw your explaination above... Sorry I missed it before

I will wait to see if they will populate later on

Thanks for the great work with this

Adsense - Show Single Post
by NeutralizeR
19 Mar 2006 04:49

If you allow search engines to spider the single versions of your posts (This post, for example... showpost.php), you may want to use adsense ads on this template, too. I think you don't want to miss any possible renevue...

Open your SHOWTHREAD_SHOWPOST template: vBulletin AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Edit Templates > Show Thread Templates > SHOWTHREAD_SHOWPOST

Find:

Quote:

$postbits
Add above:
Quote:

<table class="tborder" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
<tr>
<td class="alt1" align="center">
&nbsp;<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "youradsensecode";
google_alternate_ad_url = "http://www.yourwebsite.com/collapsible_ad.html";
google_ad_width = 728;
google_ad_height = 90;
google_ad_format = "728x90_as";
google_ad_type = "text_image";
google_ad_channel ="yourchannelcode";
google_color_border = "F5F5FF";
google_color_bg = "F5F5FF";
google_color_link = "FF0000";
google_color_url = "000000";
google_color_text = "22229C";
//--></script>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script>&nbsp;
</td>
</tr>
</table>
(Or just the <script> section if you don't want the table.)

You can also add this code after $postbits if you want a second ad unit.

Is there a way to place the ads randomly within the ForumDisplay as opposed to the first and last post?

similar to this:
