Adsense Integration as second post - StarBuG optimized blending
Mod Version: 1.00, by StarBuG (Designer) StarBuG is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2017 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.6 Rating: (8 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 90
Released: 21 Aug 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported Template Edits  

Introduction:
I am StarBuG, a clinical Physician for Children, and I am running several health Forums to support patients with medical questions. During the many years I am running my Forums I constantly worked on optimizing my Advertising integrations to maximize my earnings and the user experience using my forums. The click through rates for my Adsense integrations are good to very good for forums and may increase due to further optimizations so mark this mod as installed if you use it to make sure you always use the best optimized version of my adsense integration.

What this mod does:
This mod adds a Google Adsense large rectangle after the first post of each thread.
It is blended to look like a regular post in your thread without violating Google adsense TOS. Make sure you use the same colors you use on your forum to optimize blending!
This mod shows the AD only to GUESTS!
If you want to show it to your members as well remove the " AND $show['guest']" condition!.

Installation instructions:

in the template postbit_legacy find:


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

and add below:


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

Additional Comments:
Make sure you change all lines marked RED to fit your forum.
For better blending I use my Websites Logo as "Avatar" to make it look more like a post. For the same reason I added the "we have no influence..." part below the "Avatar". You can remove the whole "userinfo_extra" part if you don't like the text.

Of course feedback is welcome and if you have suggestions to further improve CTR please let me know!

use: <vb:if condition="!is_member_of($bbuserinfo, X,Y,Z)">

where X,Y,Z are the usergroups you don't want to show the ads to.

Great mod StarBuG! Just curious if you are using a 3rd party style for your site or if you customized the look/feel yourself?

Of course it works, I run it since 4.0.1 unchanged.

Did you view it when logged in? If so you might have missed that it only shows to guests

Ohhhh people. Please read my replies before you say it is not working!

IT WORKS.

I run it on all my forums (4.0.8) and never changed it!

It is only viewable for guests.

If you don't want that remove the guest condition!
