Let's say someone subscribers who never hits an ad, then obviously that subscription means a lot to us. Now, if someone subscribes who views 10 ads a day, then it would probably be better for us if they didn't do so.
So, in summary, it's simply member-specific.
I will say that I have been very dissapointed with our subscription rate. Without the ads, we wouldn't be able to keep the site up and running.
Does the revenue come from the ads simply appearing, or is the revenue generated from people actually clicking on the ads?
If we have to actually click on the ads I will gladly take the extra few seconds to click on ads when I log onto RZ
