    I was curious to see if SP has ever considered starting their own advertising network. You guys sell your own advertising so you have the experience with working with advertisers, and there are so many community members that run web developer sites that you could get network members.

    Also you could go the route of about.com and include a little "sitepoint box" with the banner ad which would of course increase traffic back to you.

    A banner network solely for web developer sites? Tough guidelines to be accepted. If you could even provide ads at 1/3rd what you get for the SP ones people would love to join.

    We've mulled over the idea in the past, but it's not a business that we want to get into at the moment.
