8/30/17 Open Thread: Monetizing AKC

Good Afternoon Gentlemen,

Due to the massive influx of new readers (thank you again, by the way), our server is running at near max capacity.  If we continue to grow, the site will begin to slow down.  As such, we will soon be upgrading our account to handle the additional traffic.

With this comes an important question: How to pay for the site?

We have reviewed our options and will begin implementing some of them as time permits (affiliate sales, AKC brand clothing, etc.), but we wanted to get your input on a few items on the list.

We want to keep A King’s Castle clean of annoying spam and ads, but we got to do what we need to keep the lights on here.  As such, we’d like to get your input on the following methods of generating some revenue to keep this site up:

  • Google Ads (or an equal equivalent)
  • Sponsored Posts
  • Patreon (or an equal equivalent)

Thanks again guys.

  1. I don’t think many here will begrudge you making a few sheckles, that’s what the interwebs are for, right?

      1. I think a full page spam-ad on site entry would be fantastic. I know another site where it was extremely well received by it’s patrons.

        1. Reviewing it now and once I’m done making some small tweaks we’ll put in on the posting schedule. We’re going to try to do guest posts on the weekends so it’ll post either this weekend or the next. Really like the article!

      1. I just hope the American Kennel Club doesnt sue you guys. Cant wait to buy my AKC-branded compound bow, Im gonna look sexy on the subway

    1. I don’t know why he is complaining about having only one pedal. Like he would have need of the other one.

      1. On the side opposite his one leg, perhaps? I feel pretty horrible that the mental image is comical.

  2. If I had a popular website I wouldn’t think twice about selling a little advertising on it to put a little wampum in my wallet. Seeing the ads at the bottom or sides don’t bother me however the ones that pop up from the bottom while scrolling piss me off so bad I want to kick puppies and take Kratom away from poor people.

  3. Oy vey, Goyim. You must demand tribute and shekels from all the goyim that frequent this site.

  4. If you do ads, I recommend really trashy ads. Ads for porn or some shit so at least they have hot chicks in them. Everybody likes hot chicks, except bem.

    1. Only if these ads have links to hardcore porn. If it isn’t 2 girls, 1 cup or Beastiality, it won’t quite get the rocks off.

    2. He said if you ever saw him with an ugly woman it’s because she was kinfolk.

  5. Setup a GoFund me account. Men are being repressed therefore it is a human rights issue. Put the UN symbol somewhere in there to make it legit, or make money from Real Doll Sponsorship .

  6. Do whatever is necessary to monetize it – it’s only business. We’re all running Adblock Plus, right?…

    1. And using Brave or something else (not Google) with NoScript and a host of other security plugins. 😀

      And probably a VPN.

      Maybe even Tor if you’re extra paranoid.

  7. How much do you figure you would need from each person on average per month for this site to pay for itself?

        1. “I just need some money for gas to get home to my sick momma. My car is broken down on the interstate a couple miles back.”
          –Druggies that’d knock on my apartment door back in college

  8. “•Sponsored Posts
    •Patreon (or an equal equivalent)”
    Sponsored Posts and Patron? YES! Bring on the Kratom and Tequila!

  9. Do all 3: keep the lights on! And it was very cool of you to put it to us for feedback.

    But treat Google ads as gravy, rather than as the sustaining income stream– even if it is the most lucrative. That company is becoming increasingly untrustworthy, and they are establishing a pattern of using their patronage to influence what is or is not discussed.

  10. I agree with Consolation_of_Philosophy, do all three and hedge your bets in case goo-grrl takes a dump on the site. Ads don’t bother me. I can ignore them. Do what you need to do to keep this venue open. And thank you for providing it.
