Full Version: Google Ads on AA forums

If I'm not mistaken, this cost of our webhosting this year will be RM324 (USD102) compared to RM254 (USD80) which we have been paying since two years ago. The entire AnthroAsia website only uses less than 20% allocated in our current hosting package. To eliminate any wastage of money, we're going to negotiate for custom hosting either with our current host or another one.

Because of that, starting today the forums will be fitted with advertisements on our forum index and also in between posts. Hopefully this will cushion the impact of rising webhosting costs somewhat. These ads will be displayed for the next few months or so, and any feedback is still welcomed.
I'm pretty cool with the idea, as long as the ads are text based and not intrusive like banner ads.
