Well, well, I thought I'd bring this topic up because I know some users hate ads - but some webmasters like myself know that ads can bring easy revenue to your site, and here I'll list a few advertising companies that you can run on your pet site - in the beginning - until you get more traffic. I found this post interesting by Keith and I thought I'd quote it here to make a new topic because - traffic = free money. Pet sites can run CPM ads Have you noticed how Marapets has so many ads? They're making money from those ads - they're called cost per impression, and here's a definition of CPM: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cost_per_impression That means, the more pageviews you site receives - the more money you'll make. You can just put an ad on the footer - or a skycraper or an ad at the top of your site - it all depends you have to do the testing to find what CPM ad locations perform the best for you - but, a good an easy ad network to get into your site is new is Valueclick(they should still accept online pet games, someone correct me if I'm wrong), and plus, when your site gets bigger - you can get into the bigger ad networks like Casalemedia that has a bigger ad inventory and pays more. Adsense ads https://www.google.com/adsense/www/en_US/tour/ Adsense is google's ad network - and we run their ads here. Why? They're a CPC ad network - which means, you get paid per clicks and sometimes impressions - depending on what ad inventory you select and such. But remember, your adsense ads should be optimized well into your content - or easy ad locations that aren't so annoying to users. So, let's discuss - what ways to earn from your pet site? I don't care what you say about ads, but if you're a true business game owner - you're going to try to make more money to invest into your pet game. Why? Investing is the number one way to grow your pet site - and quite frankly, some people need to learn about advertising networks and how they can easily generate money. The ads are annoying though... Ya, I know, that's why you give your users a feature to remove the ads or something - why? Most pet sites selling cash shop items or accounts upgrades, so that's useful too. And besides Slash wrote a blog post on monetized your petsite and she discussed a few things as well, like this: She's right as well - it's all up to you though, its your business - if you turn your pet site into one. So, what does everyone think about this post? Let's discuss.
