    There's no easy answer to this one lol. Rns is funded by your donations and by the ads on the site.

    However, RnS doesn't get any money for just displaying the ads

    It does get money for clicks on the ads .... buuuut loads of mad clicks gets the traffic classed as rubbish and then over time the value of the click becomes worthless so they pay nothing lol.

    For the Ebay adverts, by all means click the link if it's something you're interested in and if it's something you'd buy then definitely click them as the 'value' of the traffic increases if ebays profits go up

    Don't sit there clicking every 5 seconds thinking it helps though cos it has the opposite effect

    The google ads work a bit differently. They are purely paid on a per click basis so the more interesting the ads are to the users the more likely they are to be clicked meaning they will generate more towards the site

    They do suffer the same problem through over-clicking though. If everyone on here clicked the ads every 5 seconds then Google would likely close my account with them and there'd be no adverts or income. If Google think your clicks are falsified then they will ignore them from the statistics initially followed by the account being booted for further offences

    On the other hand, if everyone on the site found one or two of the ads interesting and clicked it to find out more then Rods 'n' Sods would tick over nicely. Don't get me wrong, it's never going to be a retirement income lol.

    Through the Google ads (and all the sites I run them on) they generate an average of £2 per day The clickthrough rate on here is almost non existent hence there's more Ebay ads than Google ones. Average daily clicks on here for Google is 5 from people not signed into the site and 0 from people who are signed in and registered. That makes up about 30p of the income from over 10,000 advert displays per day.

    It's a difficult one to go into detail on because the Terms and Conditions of the Adsense program are somewhat 'restrictive'.

    They naturally don't want every website owner to put a message up saying click the ads a few times a day with time in between so it doesn't look fake lol.

    Ane thing to note, by the way, is that if ads come up that aren't likely to ever interest anyone on here then if you can get me the websites address I can block it from ever showing up again

    Yeah, about 15 minutes ago, I rather liked that, but its hard to justify another motor with transport for every day of the week already standing around the plot.. but knowing the worth of those ads I shall visit them a little more often.
