To the owners, why the moronic Ad's?

Hey everyone im a long time lurker and finally had to make an account because I cant stand the owners "losing out" on such an opportunity.

Now instead of selling $100 ocarina's which i doubt anyone buy's why not setup an amazon.com affiliate store for the site and sell zelda games from there?

Did you know amazon 90% of the time will have the cheaper game compared to any other retailer(they have no brick and mortal stores so there costs are dirt cheap)

Thats one simple fact, why not also use adword's for the unused space until someone offers to "buy" it?

Unless those ocarina's are selling a lot I feel the owners are missing out on a lot of money WITHOUT RUINING THE SITE!

Fairly certain the ads aren't owned by the site administrators, or else they wouldn't make any money off them.

Pretty sure the site just gets money for having the ads on the site.

The ads aren't exactly "related" to the site, as in we don't control how much is sold and stuff. We just host the ads.

Re: To the owners, why the moronic Ad's?

ya exactly why not change that up and get ads that relate to the site? I highly doubt those $100 ocarina's do much for revenue compared to what an actual videogame ad would be or maybe even adwords

Re: To the owners, why the moronic Ad's?

It doesn't matter if the ocarinas actually sell, all that matters is how much the advertisers pay for the ad space.

I presume that whoever is in charge knows a bit more about how the finances work than you do.

Re: To the owners, why the moronic Ad's?

If no one wants to advertise video games, no one's going to pay ZU to host ads for video games. If someone wants to pay to have an ad for a $100 ocarina on here, so be it.

It's the ads themselves, not the products being sold, that ZU gets the money for. By having that picture/link on the site, we're getting money. And quite honestly, I find it surprising the ads are zelda related at all.

It really doesn't matter. They won't make anymore money than that of what they already do. The ads make the money, not how much the ad sells.

It really makes no difference to us weather the ads a relevent. Weather they are or aren't, we still make the same off of them.

Re: To the owners, why the moronic Ad's?

Hreyhrey: You're thinking of Google AdSense. AdWords is used to advertise one's own site. GOOGLE MAN HAS SPOKEN.

Webmasters: Just get rid of the full-screen ads that cover the whole page just to display a tiny little thing. They're infuriating. Not sure why you started using those.

They probably earn more money than other ads. At least I'd hope they do, otherwise they're a rather big waste.

Re: To the owners, why the moronic Ad's?

Only Jason controls the ads (no one else with the Webmaster title), and he's made it abundantly clear that he's not going to change them based on feedback.

Ads are there because they make money to cover server costs. It's quite simple. If they don't cover costs, they get replaced with ones that do.
