I USED to think that those crazy people who would criticize webmasters for leaning into the moneyball were just crazies, but on a whimsical whim I just looked at the fee structure for ads here on the curezone (definite article the added in courtesy grizz).
16 text ads appear. the minimum yearly ad fee is $1,000, ranging to the maximum fee of $8,000.
Conservatively estimating - ads are bringing in $64,000 yearly - nice little chunk o'.
How much money is trapper making on his Iodine bu$ine$$? I bet he will be selling ads somewhere soon. Bill Cooper is rolling in hiss grave.
Brave new world it is - so if I wanted to pull in $64k yearly what's the formula? Start a site, encourage everyone south of the mason dixon line (iq somewhere south of 80-ish) to post liberally, pick retarded/biased moderators to weed out people like me, throw in a few gold stars (RN ratings and Viola (sic intentionally).
