      What kind of CPM rates can one expect for a niche forum such as yours?
      Well, there it is.

        They don't even go by CPM in my case. It's a flat rate, regardless of hits or any other stats.

            or so the late night informercials would have you believe. Don't forget about alpaca farming either.

                You should see the farms down here in Oklahoma and the beautiful homes that go with em. Infomercials be damned...I want some Ostriches!! But, what am I complaining about, I have more than enough.

                  We have an ostrich farm here where I live. The main crops here are onions, carrots, alfalfa and sod. No houses to go with most of it though. Most of it is on leased federal land and they don't allow you to build on it.

                  Our claim though is two ever growing buffalo herds and the ever declining price of buffalo meat.

                    I make roughly $390 per month in advertising fees( has been increasing about $50 per month for the past 3 months) and I receive over $200 worth of bodybuilding and health supplements per month for free.

                      Is that just from your forum or the the site as a whole?

                        Bringing in $1,200+/month here from advertising. There is potential to double that, I just haven't cultivated much yet

                                It is surprising that since you are using 120,000 terabytes of bandwidth every month that you aren't listed as the number on desitination on the Internet. Even Yahoo and Microsoft don't use that much bandwidth every month and Microsoft has 6 million subscribers to MSN.

                                What host are you using and what does that amount of bandwidth cost you per month? At even a dollar a gigabyte, your spend over $100,000 a month for hosting so I am not sure how $1200 in ad revenue means you are making money.

                                Even if you meant megabytes in your post, that is 120 terrabytes of bandwidth. Unusually high for a site that only gets 28 million hits in a month (how many page views is that anyway?)

                                SitePoint forums gets about 50-60 million hits per month and that translates into a little less than 5 million page views. They use about 100 gigabytes of bandwidth a month also.
