In the begining ........

It would be the same, cept we'd place something at the top, some kind of name, and go from there. But before we can even do that, I need to know who of you are interested and start a convo about this so we can get the disadvantages and advantages to this project.
What you are Talking about now is Creating a New Ad network - only run by YOU.

To come up with a Technolagy for a Ad network will require a Small mint.
Espasialy if you are thinking to offer all the services that the oder networks are offering seperatly - but under one roof.
Also to create somthing more smaller like in the original Idea will require Time and Money.

The original Idea was good - combine the Uniqs of lot's of small sitet - so when we go to a EXISTING ad network - we will get a better CPM or any other rate - since we have more Page View's. (now the question is whether the Ad network will agree to it.....).

One thing that has always gotten me about online advertising, is the fact that those visitors that visit yahoo looking for jokes, are the same ones that visit our sites looking for the same stuff. Yet yahoo can charge 10x what we can.

I'm all for any idea that makes money, all ideas have some problems, but we have spent years building websites with traffic surely we can take a month or two and get a network together that can make some money.

I have about 250-300,000 uniques, I'm willing to include, also I will donate bandwidth too.

Lets not give up this fast, those of you that don't like th idea fine, you can leave, but as for us we will at least make an attempt. I for one am not making much now so I don't have much to loose. The net is still way to young for an idea of a bunch of webmasters to fail without even starting.

So what do we have so far?

I have 250-300,000 uniques.
Plus I can donate bandwidth.

What does everyone else have, lets get the number together so we can see what we can do. I have been lurking for sometime, and have finally found something, I can get invloved with. We are all honest people, so we should be able to work something out. Plus we have several on this board that already buy advertising, and others that program, other do graphics, I think we will find that we have all we need.

One other thing I can't help but notice, goto.com is making it because they have traffic, we all have enough traffic I bet to give them a run. We should be able to make a partnership with them, plus there our other companies that would love to have a bunch of webmasters with a ton of traffic together. I think we should be able to easily hit 100-250 million pageviews together with at least 10-25 million uniques. I think it will be big enough to get some attention.

Lets keep the ball rolling.

Hello Matt1,

Welcome to the Forum and BB http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

"...Lets not give up this fast, those of you that don't like th idea fine, you can leave, but as for us we will at least make an attempt..."

I'm sorry but I can't leave. I own the "joint" http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif and neither can anyone else, given the fact that "they" have posting rights and this is an open BB.

Actually, KP asked for all thoughts/sides on his plan and those of us who occassionaly insert what senior member and our resident metaphor expert Edwin terms "cold water" all wan't the idea to work but it needs to be carefully examined from all perspectives. Iv'e read every post in this thread before I make this statement.

Boy o boy, you should see some of the ideas I come up with. Wacky at best but without the honest and candid advice of Team Geek I guarantee you I would have done some really icky/crazy/unsound things.

Please excuse some of my slightly off topic remarks.

Matt - good idea.. lets all list what we can give.

I can give around 100,000-200,000/views/month for the first couple months then hopefully break into around 3-400,000...

I'm sure we can come up with some kind of name. But let the ads run from AdAthon or something like this.

We can make different channels and let web site opt-in to the category which their site is supposed to be in.

It can be something like About.com, just it's by webmasters, real ones and ones that know what they are talking about.

Excluding my gaming, holiday and low-quality sites, I could provide about 250,000 uniques and approximately 1,500,000 pageviews.

In addition to the categories above, I think we should consider a category specifically designated to "Regional" content. I'm aware that whatever ad management platform we select will have the ability to geotarget, but since we're working slightly differently from the traditional ad networks (ie, pushing sponsorship and other custom creative packages), targeting by technology won't be enough. This could provide another hook to the network.

Interesting Idea..

-I just launched a statistics service, which with a few modifications could easily manage your tracking requirements. (spyk.com)

-I have two domains I'm not using which might interest you:

Wow, all of this seems great! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif)) Well my two biggest pages are on Rivals but I still have an entertainment network (sports is the category getting more hits right now) that is currently getting over 100K impressions/month but should be over 250K soon if you don't start up this network too fast! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif The network really started like 2 months ago so...

Thumbs up

I have a yahoo listed site, top 5 in two keyword searches. I am a graphic designer turned webdesigner. I know I have a lot of kinks to work out, but I have lots of content and would love to get involved in your idea. Ill keep reading this thread to see whats new.

{sigh** I have not yet figured out how to make money from my site. My only affiliation is with CJ. I have made a whopping 18 cents.

www.rpgdot.com could give about 250.000 page views per month. It is a CRPG news site.

I could donate a domain name, too: speedfolio.com. It was purchased for a bank, is tested worldwide and scored very nicely *g*.
