I was asking about paying Google to advertise my site, when I said Google ads.

Though you just scared me a little :o when you said they would delete my site :x from their search engine, I never thought they would do that. I thought they would just close my google publisher account. BUT you got me thinking, mmmmmm maybe they might, so to be on the safe side. I just deleted my google ads I had on my site after reading your post.

Has anyone paid google to advertise their site? and if so, what sort of results did you get. was it worth it?
I LOVE these forums!!! So helpful...

yes, best be on the safe side, re google adsense.

I've read on so many of the webmaster forums (adult and non-adult) where google takes a dislike to a particular site, and then you're ban-jaxed.  Many times, no real reason is apparent.  And sadly, it is very difficult to ever get to the bottom of it, or have a dialog with the beast.  Once it decides, you're cast out into the wilderness, for some period of time.

I've never paid google to advertise any of my sites. 

But why don't you focus on using an advertiser that is more focussed on your needs/traffic.

e.g.  text based adverts at say  ero-advertising.com

(gofuckyourself.com is an excellent forum for webmasters.....you'll see lots of tips there)

Advertising on google has always put a hole in my pocket with limited results. Pumping traffic from trafficholder and simliar vendors into free sites w/ trade scripts will get you $500-$2k/wk if you know what you're doing. Although those #'s are plummeting fast thanks to tube sites.  IMO, the future of porn is tube sites and advertising.

(JohnBoy, trafficholder.com may also be worth looking at)

anyone know what file can I change the successful activation text in?   

Account successfully confirmed!

Your account has been activated! You can now continue to the login page and start using your account.

Before you start using yoursite.com we urge you to read the RULES and the FAQ.


/info.php?type=acctok   I had no luck in this file, nor in the translated section of the admin end.

I want to add a sentence, and url link to the text above, indicating where the new user can go and finish editting their profile.

ps - on the wider scale, I think the cron jobs need to be looked at again.  I used the backend tonight, to send out an email to a member (i.e. myself) and it eventually arrived nearly an hour later - and may have been sent out when I hit regenerate, unsure.

skins_site/def/info_acctok.html

To customize a page such as add text or links, etc., you edit the HTML version of the PHP file. In most cases the php files are just for the dynamic code stuff that makes the page function. Only certain text is edited in the admin, if there's text your looking for to edit and it's not in the admin, you'll most likely always find it in the HTML file that's of the same name as the PHP version.

I signed up to your site and got the email instantly, has to be your email client. If you're using free services such as Yahoo or Hotmail for example, sometimes it can take hours before it arrives. Nothing you can do in the script to force email services to deliver it faster.

thanks.  I should have used search software to locate the text.  It makes sense that any text will be in the html version of the file.

in yahoo, sometimes it arrives immediately...but more often than not, takes hour/s.

the same was true tonight for a new person who signed up.
