Advertising
As some of you may have noticed, I have finally introduced some advertising on the website. As vflfooty.com moves to a hosting site, it has become necessary to try and generate enough income to try and cover the costs of site hosting each month.

Another quick update, I have now got a google search engine embedded in the main page. Using both the search engine (works just like google.com.au) and occassionally advertising of interest, returns the website a small amount of money that goes towards meeting the costs of the monthly hosting fee. So if you normally use Google as your main search page, why not use VFL Footy instead, you will be helping to keep the website running.

Just started using google through the box at the top right hand corner of the homepage, it works a treat. Hopefully you're getting a little bit of money back NorthPort, the least we can all do now this site has started delivering even more news and video highlights than ever before. Sometimes we take it for granted that people like NorthPort are dipping into their own pocket and spending a lot of their own time designing these sorts of forums for our enjoyment.

Thanks for the kind words Footyman, yeah I had to increase the type of hosting to allow for the increased traffic for the video's and the webspace to store them.

Why not initiate a subscription program Northport? I`d kick some bucks into the pot, 5 quid from everybody would make a big difference yes?

Thanks guys.. Topcat I'd rather not encourage people to part with money... If they do I really need to spend more time on the site to keep it up to date and add more features etc. The ads mean that the site can generate enough money, without users needing to part with their hard-earned!
