Hmm, this seems like an interesting idea. With Google's Adsense program, they put ads on your web pages, picking ads that match the content of the page (to some extent) and pay you for hits.

You just add some javascript to the page and leave the rest up to them. Sounds like it would work on any site (i.e., a wiki / TWiki or a site like SourceForge which you didn't really own (of course, subject to not violating SourceForge's terms of use)).

Also, the ads appear to be in plain text, at least on the first site I found the ads.

No real discussion about how much you can earn — you earn only on clickthroughs, but (IIRC) Google does say they want to be more than competitive.

No word either (IIRC) on how much extra bandwidth is required to support the service (on your pages).


LC: Tried inserting the ad script bits, but either a few crucial characters got escaped or the ads got placed 'outside' the structure of the page. Using pattern skin, but not sure where/how to insert the bits so they don't break.
