Just a "friendly" :wink: reminder regarding how you can support the forum:

Amazon Link at the bottom of each page
the adverts at the top
PayPal link on front page

thanks for the support

It all depends on the advert that is being clicked on. The person "at the other end" decides how much each click is worth...it can vary from as little as 1p/1c per click up to much more.
Although I can see a report of how many clicks occur, I can't break it down any further.
One thing that Google don't like is "click fraud"...whereby people go mad and continously click the ads to generate money. If that happens frequently, they then ban you :cry:

What I can say is that the average cost for my hosting company is about £9 per month - that gets me 20GB of bandwidth. I get charged an extra £1/GB over that.
Currently the site is generating about 30GB/month, so on average, I am paying about £19/month.
If you factor in what I would charge myself per hour for my efforts...we're talking millions!!!!

One point to bear in mind is the size of the database I am allowed...100Mb.
Currently we are just under 70Mb big, hence the reason I sometimes do a spring clean :)

Have you looked into changing hosts? Those costs seem very high. I'll PM you with details of my host.
