    How to generate income from a "forums only" site

    Does anyone have any idea whether any ad-network accepts "forums only" site?

    Besides, what are the other alternatives to generating income for such a site?

    Thanks!

    There is a 99% chance you won't get accepted into a CPM network, so count that out.

    Your best bets are CPC and CPA networks. Ones that are known to accept forums-only sites are Fastclick, Valueclick, Fineclicks, and CJ.

    If you create a main page and make your site looks like there is more than just forums, you could try to get accepted by a better network. You might want to give this a try. Good luck.

    it is not easy, but you should try it any way and decide it by yourself.

    Contentzone.com and bannerspace.com
    would probably accept this sort of site as would all of standard internet's programs; allclicks.com bulkclicks.com and so on.

    Fastclick doesen't accept forum sites for anything but popunders. Valueclick is not accepting many sites at all.

    I would not waste time with bannerspace. They do not pay.
