About this hack:
Advanced Ads for famous Google adsense program (for the program, click here) are now very high-class show in all pages of your forum, many options to offer more than a way of advertising in all pages. this product contains group of main features:
  • Google adsense Manager: system to add, edit and display adsense in your vbulletin forum
  • adsense revenue share: share with admins, friends or users
  • rotate ads: rotate adsense with other ads


why this is better than "Google AdSense Integration" feature:
Google AdSense Integration have only specific packages. And these packages have no options.



but let's take a look on Advanced Google AdSense features



Main features:
  • you can add adsense ads info into your database then call them by variables.
  • You can exclude or add forums, users, usergroups or ips from display ads to them.
  • practicability to show ads in specific locations with tables and borders or css divs.
  • practicability to choose best alignment to show your ads.
  • practicability to add extra ads under side left/right adsense ads.
  • with adsense share you can specifying how many post should user reach, percentage of share and either you want to share users or admins.
  • practicability to show adsense for search in popup forum search menu in navbar.
  • practicability to use old style of adsense code and use it with your fourm.
  • practicability to rotate adsense ads with other program ads for example like bidvertiser.
  • practicability to add specific ads for specific forum.
  • very high classifying options to show your adsene in different locations.


Screenshots:
First: admincp options

Second: google adsense manager
Third: display options pages

Install/upgrade the product:
- upload file cpnav_ain_adsens.xml inside includes\xml (replace it if you are upgrading from 6.0)
- Import product-ain_adsens.xml file (as product): AdminCP > Plugin System > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product] (Allow overwrite if you are upgardeing)


How to use it:
  1. after installation/upgrade go to your forum admin control panel (main page) and check out if your publisherid is empty or not. if it is, ads will not work until you update it. please visit ads setup options page to update it.
  2. in ads setup options, click on the link in the second option. you will be redirected to ads units system to ad your ads. from there you can delete, update or preview your adsense codes. if you planning to use adsense share it's better to add custom adsense unit.
  3. any ads already in your list, you can use it in any template. if your ad unit id is 5 and you want to display it in header template. you can go to header then add this code:
    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

    this in case you want to do it by yourself.
  4. in case you want to display your ads by the avilable option, go to Display options then click on the link you want to edit options in it. for example, you want to mange your adsense ads in forum home page. after you enterd the page, you have to choose locations where you want to show your ads. then on each location you choosed there are place to put ad id you preferd to that location. finally save and enjoy
  5. if you want to exclude users, usergroups, forums or ips you can do it from main options. you will need to take a look on options there.
  6. adsense share is completely optional, if you want to enable sharing take a look on Adsense Share options and if you still have questions I will be here to help if possible.

Amazing mod mate, so great, especially for the ones who don't have to knowledge to pull it off by themselves.... like myself haha.

One question: There are ad units and link units. How many of each are you allowed to have on each page and combined? I can recall you can have 3 ad units on a single page but does that mean you can't have a single link unit on that same page?
Is there also someone who can tell me if there is a different in revenue if you choose only to display text ads only for ad units? Text ads only would blend in my site a lot more but if it lowers the Page eCPM, I'll have to choose to display the image ads as well.

I'm hoping for a quick answer so I can continue playing with it. Many thanks for your help and congrats with creating such a lovely mod!


EDIT
Two more questions:

1) Is it possible to show text ads only in the ads after the first post? So no flashing images but just text. The rest of the forums can contain image ads but I don't like the looks of it underneath the first post.
2) There is an option to auto-reload ads on your forum. Enabling that option, would that mean you can impressions every 60 seconds and if so, isn't that against Google Adsense policy?

hello BozzaJos,

not sure if i understand what you're trying to say .. are you suggest to add new options to add link units in different pages? or you want know if possible to add more adds on one page. there are no problems with ads itself, but there are 3 problems if you put many of them in one page:

1. cause excessive loading on the page >> lead to upset users and guests
2. as I tested.. google ads don't shows more than 5 ads in one page even if ads from different accounts.
3. most of users and guests hates ads .. if you put 5 ads every page they will leave your site

I elected ads locations depending on an article here in vb.org .. also I am try to find best places to put them.. if you have some where in your forum you think it's better to add ads on it tell me please

I have 2 features in my mind for next update:

1. adsense share
2. adsense search

thanks and good luck

great mod and simple to use - downloaded, installed and nominated - wtg
thanks for your vote
have fun

Thank you for the quick answer al3bed!
What I am talking about is that I am using the ads on multiple locations on my forums. I would like to show text and images ads on all locations except for the ads beneath the first post. On that location, I would like to use text ads only. However, in the options, there is only one code I can place for long ads code. So I guess I have to use text and image ads only or only text ads.

For example, all the ads in your screenshots are text ads only. But if you look at my site, you will see that I use both text and image ads. Is there less revenue if you only use text ads?

Also, could you please answer my question about the auto-reload time. What exactly is it for?

Thanks again mate, really appreciate it!

yes it possible, but not with options (may with next releases) try do this:
Go to you style templates and search for: ain_adsense_postbit

find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

replace it with your google code that only show text ads.
it should be work!

about profitable ads, depending on statistics, google optimization team and vbulletin team they found that Text ads are less invasive to your users but not as effective. it's not about which one is more profitable.. it's about which one is more clickable.

2) There is an option to auto-reload ads on your forum. Enabling that option, would that mean you can impressions every 60 seconds and if so, isn't that against Google Adsense policy?
there is no term prevent from reload ads. auto-reload is like when you refresh your page, but this mode refresh only your code without the whole page every x second. if google adsense team overseeing every reload to check if it's a user reload or auto-reload there server will be like bombed hell.

I think that option is not very useful you better to disable it .. if you want.
