Google Adsense is a program that displays relevant ads on websites and pays website publishers when the ads are clicked. Google Adsense Ads are shown inline on threads in the forum as well as in the left hand column throughout the site. Money earned is used to offset the costs of hosting the site.
On YGP revenue sharing will be used as an incentive for other website owners to share their knowledge and content with the users of Your Guitar Place. It's also a nice way for people who participate in the site to earn a few dollars.
If a user has an AdSense account, they have the ability to credit their account with the ads served on Your Guitar Place threads they start or participate in. For threads they start, their AdSense client ID will be used 50% of the time when the thread is viewed (a 50% revenue share). In the near future the entire site will include revenue sharing.
To participate you obviously must have an Adsense account. This means you have to have a website which is approved by Google to carry Adsense.
If you have an Adsense ID click on 'Setup Revenue Sharing' at the top of the forum & enter it.
I'll post more on this at a later date when it is fully implemented...
