we are starting to bring in some cash.. but its not from advertising.. although we are starting to become more aggressive on advertising..

there are alot of ways to generate funds on a forum.. (well I guess it depends on the forum).. for instance our forum allows us to hold events, meet and greets, contests ect..

my board has been open just over 9 months now and I am seeing about 1mil hits a month.. 12-1300 uniques a month

Well the best thing is to start with google adsense and then make some paid subscription so users can buy extra rights.

He has 5000+ users and 0.5 million posts.

Does this sound unusual????

If he can't make any money from this it kinda makes me think how the heck ANYONE makes any money from advertising!!!!

advice appreciated!!!
