Blue words: You mean the advertising links I recently started seeing? I can't remember where or what words, but I saw something like "truck" in a post that was double underlined and blue. Moved the mouse over it and an advertisement popped up. Is this an extra revenue avenue for Moose River?

Because they are.

good enough for me. if the links were more relevant that would be less annoying. instead of bringing up cat food all the time... but i think sean explained that already...

although theres is a ton of ads, i understand why they are neccessary. they are sending out countless copies of Turf and their other magazines, keeping this site plus all the others going. and if they left it up to donations to keep the site up and running, how many people would really donate?

Hey, I really don't read Turf, I just get it... Maybe if I cancelled it would save them postage and thusly they could stop with the blue enderlined link words!?

Well, its obviously not going to get very many hits through the content links because everyone despises them so much. maybe they will be helpful when they start being relevant to the trade, instead of bringing up cat food and crap like that. I would love to know how it makes LawnSite money though, i couldnt figure it out via the content link website.

Yes, I did sell the sites to Moose River Media, formerly Moose River Publishing.... I am still involved and running the sites...

The contextual (blue) ads are gone - we tried it and scrapped it....the members spoke and we listened.

Thank You!

I agree. I would pay a one time $5 fee or something like that to become a member.

Or a buck a year?

The only problem with having a fee to become a member is that alot of the people who come here once to ask a question or any homeowners that come here wouldn't want to pay. That really would defeat the purpose of the site IMO. We would only be left with the people who visit everyday and post everyday. I think a donation would be better. People can donate whatever they want but aren't required to pay to be a member. Just my .02

I agree with Raven. A donation option would be an idea, but I just counted about 60 advertisements on this one page. I don't know what each is worth, but with the traffic this website gets, they should be worth a lot. Looks like the revenue from these ads would keep the site running without member fees, just like the ads in Turf make it possible for free subscriptions.

That depends, they might be pay-per-click ads. So lets say they charge $5 to get your ad on the site, then charge $1 per click. I don't know how many people visit the websites in the ads... But no matter what the case is, they're obviously at least breaking even if they were'nt this site would be shut down.

Membership to LS would not be orthodox due to the ad costs. They do sell the space for a "pretty penny" but I will not disclose numbers on an open forum. To charge for entry or membership to a user-generated site would be down right rude if you ask me.

Besides, the core purpose of LS is to inform for the excellence of the industry. That is the foremost goal as I understand it. Sean may "chime in" if I'm mistaken.

I know on the Ford Truck Enthusiasts forum, the standard forum and membership are free. They have a premier edition that you have to pay and you get special content or something. I'm not quite sure how much it costs or what extra you get.

Previous posts explained how to delete the highlighted words, but I'm not going to do this. Reason: Sean, Michael & the rest of the crew felt this trial was worthwhile. The least I can do is go along with it as long as they do. These guys have done alot for this industry, so I'll stick by them for a long time. The longer one is in business, the easier it is to determine who your friends really are. The lawnsite guys are trusted friends of mine and so many others.
