How Much Does It Cost To Make A Forum Ad Free?

Post  El Guapo on Mon Feb 15, 2010 5:19 pm

Before starting a forum I would have had no idea but some of you might find this a bit interesting lol

This forum is created using the latest phpbb software. Phpbb is the same system Jezzas and Dogs use and is considered probably the best.

Now all our members here enjoy Ad-Free service. And its...wait for it


Very Happy



Totally free!!!! Pretty cool eh?


Doesn't cost a penny. Nope. Not a jot lol

Of course ads ARE visible to guests. After all, who is really bothered about Ads viewable to guests?

I suppose sooooooooome less, shall we say, brightest of sparks, might have mistakenly paid to have their forum free of Ads to guests too...

Either that or they're secretly rubbing their hands gleefully at the notion of a having a fund to dip into everytime the choccy donut supply runs low...

uummmmmmmmmm, very interesting. We have absolutely everything we need here and it's all totally free. I don't know much about it, I'm sure Stooo said he paid for his forum, but I think it's hosted in the US, but not certain how it all works.Maybe I could ask Stooo why he decided to pay for a forum when so may free ones are available, he does seem to be clued up on this sort of thing.

I think Stoo moved to private hosting which has a number of benefits. But I'm not really referring to that, I'm confused as to why some people pay to hide Adverts when they really shouldn't be. ;-)

I was led to believe the cost was $4.95@ month to get the ads off the page. Different forums, different ways I suppose. As u urself have posted, this board is one of the best, therefore perhaps they don't need the revenue associated with ads, and probably run a programme that only uses keywords, non visible to the guest/poster's eyes. This is usually Googlebot, or Adsense, etc.
This technology does it without ur knowledge, a bit like ur pms being passed to others without ur consent.
