    Don't be surprised if they suddenly disappear one day.

    Google have a habit of not paying out if they feel the links are being used too much, citing they are being abused.

    Being used too much?? Isn't that the point?

    You'd think so, but if they tot up the hits and think there are too many for the size of the site, or the number of members on the forum, they claim somebody is just clicking repeatedly to get the money and refuse to pay out.

    That's exactly what happened on the CPUK forum.

    Hey All,


    the Google ads are a test for about 3 months. We're getting feedback and are also considering paid sponsorships rather than generic Google Ads.

    Why?

    We're going to be splitting the forums off from ********** totally. Not sharing server space, not sharing anything. That being said, they have to support themselves. It's certainly not in an effort to make $$, but rather an effort to subsidize the costs of operation (dedicated server, etc).
