I originaly posted this in the web developer section.

Hi, I need some helpful advice on the most unobtrusive way to add some advertising to a message board I operate.
I have looked at Google ads and I'm wondering if anyone else can help me choose a advertising system to go with.
I need to hear the good and the bad, what works and what doesn't work.
The bandwidth charges are eating me alive and I need to offset some if not all of my costs.

Some board stats for last month:

Total Page Views: 545206

Average Page Views/Day: 17587

Total New Topics Created: 990

Total Registered Members: 2139

Total New Members: 178

Total Hours Usage Logged: 9532

These numbers are for the month of December.

when you do a forum, don't you want it to be sucessful? when sucessful, you know you'll have to incur charges for the bandwidth.


i always wonder why people start sites and then complain about how much it's costing them. i have a sort of an idea to make a helpful website for something i like, but in the pre-pre-pre planning stages i would never give away something free and then complain like a little baby. i would do it only if i enjoyed it and being a part of something good was worth the extra cost to myself.

sell out!!!!

Man, get off your High Horse.

What is the forum about?
I'd rather not say, except it's work related.
