The more observant amongst you will have noticed that I have recently added Adsense ads to Binary Moon. What you most likely won’t have noticed, unless you checked out Bubble Blitz online, is that I’ve also added them to Binary Sun.
Why Binary Moon?
I’m not overly keen on advertising but I thought I would try them out. To keep things nice the ads on Binary Moon will only be visible in certain places.
- If you are on a post with more than ten comments you will see a ‘get firefox’ banner underneath the comments box
- If you are on a post with more than one hundred comments you will see a 468 banner above the comments box
- If you are on a link post (as seen in the link category), or a post that is older than 2 weeks you will see a google link unit at the bottom of the post
I’m currently playing with ad types and positioning but I will always keep things subtle and have no intention of flooding the site with intrusive ads.
Why Binary Sun?
As I’ve already mentioned Binary Sun now has it’s first online game, and more are planned, so to go with the free content I have added some skyscraper ads on the side of the page. As with Binary Moon I intend to keep the ads fairly subtle. The problem with Binary Sun, at least so far, is that the traffic there is fairly small. I have a few ideas about generating extra traffic though and I will be posting about them some time in the future.
