    What sort of revenue are you seeing from this configuration?

    One thing I do recommend is a Conditional Call To Action below each post. "These ads will disappear once you sign up" The whole phrase is a link to my signup page. Or if you are logged in, then "These ads aren't shown to premium users" The whole phrase is a link to the accounts upgrade page. These are passive Calls To Action and they work! I get about a grand a year in premium upgrades.

    I think Google's TOS doesn't allow me to share the revenue figures.

    Can you please share the code you use for your conditional call the action as well as where you specifically place it.

    Interested in what benefits you are providing for this, and what charging model you are using?

    Mine are explained here: https://www.mu-43.com/account/upgrades

    Main one is that for $5/year, members can have an ad-free site.

    Thanks for sharing! Do you find that you get better revenue having your ad below first post on threadview vs in the header?

    Similar revenue. I think it's better from an SEO standpoint though to have content be the first thing encountered in the thread view.

    Hmmm .... I always find it interesting that sites do not reveal premium functionality/features to non-registered users.

    I didn't even realize I was doing that. Must be the default. Anyway, here are my upgrades:

    Quick bug fix. on ad_message_below the if else for the ad size should be encapsulated:

    Code:
      if ( adWidth >= 728 ){
          google_ad_size = ["728", "90"];}
        else {
          google_ad_size = ["300", "250"];}
    Also, you should change the small ad size to 300x250, it has a much better fill rate than 320x250.

    It has always worked for me without that.

    Oops, thanks for catching my typo. Now fixed!

    Yes it may, but it also make throw an unexpected token error on the else in that code. Safer to have the brackets than depend on the parser to get it right.

    Hello thank you.
    I have created a 970 x 250 in adsense CP
    I reduced the code in XF template to 800 x 250 to fit my DIV.
    Do i have the right to resize the ad container without being worried by Adsense rules ?
    Thanks
