I was just trying to get to TRF and this came out in one of Google results:
http://www.websiteoutlook.com/www.tombraiderforums.com
It tells me various things like the ad revenue, subscribed users, and even the server location!

I don't know if this is obvious news or something, but I thought it was interesting.

I'm not sure if this accurate or legit, can we get a confirmation by the Admin?

forty thou isn't exactly a lot. I blow that every two months :whi:
I seriously doubt TRF is worth that little. I'm thinking it's more like six figures, if not $even.

I don't think it's our business to know that ... even if it's sold it will be sold as TRF

I think the amount each of us are worth isn't quite based on number of members, but also number of posts made at time of cost estimation, activity and general benefit to the forum. Obviously friendly chatterboxes, mods and Dusan are worth much more :p

Based on post count, I'm $58.41 :pi:

Some more interesting statistics:

http://www.quantcast.com/www.tombraiderforums.com

What amazes me is the low number of "regulars" and "addicts" in the traffic measured. Apparently a lot of the value of the site comes not from the advertisement shown to active members, but rather in the advertisements shown to everyone else who just happens to stop by.

Anyone has an estimate of how much does it cost to maintain this server?

:D

If my memory serves me right, I think Justin said he actually makes a loss on the keeping the whole thing running - which is why clicking ads has been encouraged because the regulars hardly ever do that, unfortunately I'm also guilty of ignoring the ads banner in the corner. :/

Minty Mouth

Dont we have to actually buy something from the website advertised/Download something for the revenue to actually go through? Or does it just take a click?

Reggie
04-10-09, 18:24
I think it just takes a click, although a single click is negligible in value, high traffic and multiple clicks within that traffics ramps up the value by how much I'm not sure.

jackles
04-10-09, 18:35
Like Reggie said I am pretty sure just the clicking on the ad will help raise revenue. No purchasing required! :)

Cochrane

Dont we have to actually buy something from the website advertised/Download something for the revenue to actually go through? Or does it just take a click?

With Google AdSense, which forms at least part of the ads here, website operators get money only per click, and it's horribly low. The total depends on the site, of course, as well as arcane formulas that only Google knows and understands, but it usually works out to very, very little. Talking about the actual amount is actually forbidden by Google rules (and I wouldn't know it anyway as nobody ever clicked the ads on my sites while they were there), though. Other networks may operate differently, of course, but I don't know if others operate on this site at all.

Interestingly, Google also forbids website owners from talking about or drawing attention to the Google ads on their sites, the idea being that only people genuinely interested in the advertised products click them, because the money is coming from the advertiser, not Google, and they don't like to spend money for clicks that won't lead to anything.
