Added Google Ads to our site for Non-members.

Post#1 by tim » 12 Oct 2016, 17:10


We have applied to Google Adsense for showing ads on our site for Non-Members.
Right now, it's under review so ads are blank, once our application is approved google will start serving ads on our site.
Our members (when logged in) enjoy an ad-free browsing experience.

Also for members, if you're just logging in from your own personal computer from home, there's no need to logout.
And as long as you return to our forum within 24hrs, you won't be automatically logged out. So that you'll enjoy ad-free browsing experience.
If you are logging in from a public computer (like a the library or something) then we do recommend that you log yourself out after each use.

Well first go at application for Google Adsense got disapproved for following reasons:
Insufficient content: To be approved for AdSense and show relevant ads on your site, your pages need to have enough text on them for our specialists to review and for our crawler to be able to determine what your pages are about.

I guess we'll wait until we make it through the crawlers and with more content to apply again.

I am just too excited to add google ads, so i tried apply again.
What's the worse that can happen? rejected/denied again for not enough content? I don't know when enough content is made to make their cut so i'll keep trying every week or two until it's accepted.

On another note. If you search "Gimp Learn forum" on Google, this site is indexed as 2nd or 3rd on google index so that's a good thing (I think).
Search "gimp learn forum" on google

And i tried searching for "learn gimp forum" and we were 4th or 5th so that's also pretty good.
Search "learn gimp forum" on google
