Re: Update - Google Ad experiment

I removed your email address from your post Val - sorry it's nothing personal, I just feel it's better not to have it showing to the world with the number of scammers there are on the internet these days. Your email did match up and I found your username and added it to the Full Member Group a while...

Re: Update - Google Ad experiment

So, I have a slight problem. There are 2 people who have donated - but the email addresses showing on the Dreamhost donation list doesn't appear in the forum user database. In other words, the email address of the person that donated isn't the same email they used to sign up to the forum so I can't ...

Re: Update - Google Ad experiment

Hello again everyone.

3 weeks has passed so I'm changing the ads around again to test different positions for the next 3 weeks.

This next one is more aggressive - in between posts.

But of course for 'Full Members' you won't see this ;-)

How to become a Full Member...

To help with our running costs, we need to have some advertising BUT I have also created a 'Full Member' group that removes the adverts. If you make a donation to our running costs through a special link set up with our web host, I will add you as a Full Member for a year. Here's how to do this: Mak...

Re: Update - Google Ad experiment

Yes, Google does check each ad before they go live. Probably something legitimate Rick.

I'll keep the ranks for now... I think it's a bit of fun!

Two more people made a donation :-) Thank you Marigold for mentioning it in the Dust Bath.

Re: Update - Google Ad experiment

Hi All, Thanks for the great feedback (and donations! Wow thanks!). I've been away for a couple of days with work, hence the delay in responding. I think there's a good plan coming together here. Here's what I see so far from the Ads (it's early days of course but looks promising): PKF Google Ad.JPG...

Re: Update - Google Ad experiment

Thanks for the feedback - to answer some questions... 1. A paypal donation? I have been reluctant because then you have to make sure you keep the forum working for 12 months. I think I'm happier now - but at times I've been struggling, like when we had masses of registration spam or when we were exc...

Update - Google Ad experiment

Hello All, As some of you may know I've been looking for a way to offset the running costs of the forum for a while. For the past 10 years, it has been funded by the ads on poultrykeeper.com and from a few donations from members of the forum. In round figures, the running costs are around £200 per y...
