I run several health related forums in Germany.
In the last few month I made lots of changes to my forums especially in regards to what I show to guests.
After spending hours on thinking about my main forum and how to make it even more attractive for my visitors I came up with the idea to remove all unnecessary information to improve the signal to noise ratio.
First of, why does a guest need to see the “what is going on” box?
What valuable information does your visitor get from it?
Some will say that it shows that the community is active. Yeah, maybe.
But Post and Thread count do the trick as well.
Lots of noise removed.
This is another AdSense implementation for your vBulletin 4.0 Forum.
This placement is exclusively released for AdsenseExperts.
You are allowed to use this placement on your own forum, however republishing this modification on other website is only allowed with prior written consent by me.

Make sure you use the same colors as you use on your forum to optimize blending!
This mod goes perfectly with my other AdSense Integration mods:
- AdSense inside the first post – AdsenseExperts Exclusive
- AdSense inside the last post – AdsenseExperts Exclusive
If you want to display the AD in the 2nd post on the right side of the content like in the
AdSense inside the first post mod, simply copy the code and CSS from there.
This mod shows the AD only to GUESTS!
If you want to show it to your members as well remove the “$show[‘guest’]” condition!
In the template additional.css add:
This mod adds a Google Adsense leaderboard above active users and similar threads below each thread.
It is blended to look like the other moduls below the thread without violating google adsense TOS.
Make sure you use the same colors you use on your forum to optimize blending!
In the template SHOWTHREAD find:
This mod adds a Google Adsense large rectangle below the navbar together with an eye catching welcome message and a call to action (registration).
This ad is the best performing ad on my forum. I run a forum with a fixed width and I think that on a fluid style this mod won’t look that good, but give it a try if you want.
In the template navbar find:
