Hi,

I've decided that I'm going to try out Google Adsense, and see how it goes on ProIV RC.

I'm not going to plaster ads all over the place... probably keep them where they are for a while and see how it works out. But I might experiment with them over the next few weeks.

I've also included a google search box at the top of the page in the ProIV RC icon, this search box links directly to the google search pages, so its like doing a search at www.google.com. The search results appear in a new window.

Google Adsense is supposed to deliver ads based on what is in the page you are displaying. This sometimes gives strange results, I've noticed during testing. Quite a few times I've had ads for 'Birthday' sites alot because of the 'Birthday' listings of our members on the main page.

Let me know what you all think, and please visit any ads that are appropriate to you....

Thanks,

Rob D.

Interesting.....three of the four ads that came up for me were for anger management programs.

Dammit! I can't @#$%*@ understand why that would happen!

@$*@#$@!!!!!

Rob,

Will Google therefore double us up on the ads for Russian mail order brides? :(

I hope you're able to get some coin out of it.

Regards,

Joseph

er ... I got an ad for a latest release gay movie. Is there something that I should be telling my wife ? I knew I enjoyed Russell Crowe's Gladiator movie waaaay too much.

Mind you, I just had a look at the topics in New Posts, and there were words like "gui", "hangs", "server", "hotkey", "ration" and "release" in the topic titles.

As I'm running Firefox with the Adblock tool which I've configured to block the Google Ad-Sense boxes I haven't got a clue what you're all talking about!!! :(

I can see the search box though!

Do you need all of us to email you screen shots? You must feel terribly left out... :(

Thanks for your concern, Joseph.

Fortunately I have to use Internet Explorer from my work machine (thanks to my VPN I then appear to be in New York!). So I'll see what's going on later
