I'm looking for a list of sites (forums, blogs, email newsletters etc)
where the owner party shares their ad revenue with the user community.
Please research and find at least 15 such sites.

This is an interesting concept which I've never heard of in years of
casual browsing. Is there a site you know of that does this, and is
the inspiration for your search?

The idea seems to defy logic, since the revenue is proportionate to
the number of users, and amounts to pennies for the 1 user in large
numbers of others who clicks on an ad, so it would seem to amount to
dividing, e.g. $1000 among 100,000 users.

About the only thing I have heard of are some few sites who donate
their ad revenue to charities.

Let me know your thoughts...

sublime,

Here are a couple of articles presenting background on ad revenue sharing:

(Bill Gates talking about it)

(YouTube looking to share online ad revenue)

"YouTube users could be paid for their video clips after the popular
website was bought by Google for around $1.6bn (900m).

Those who upload clips will get a slice of advertising revenue on the
pages containing their videos.

Google fought off arch-rival Yahoo! in one of the biggest ever Internet deals. 

The sale has made instant multimillionaires of creators Chad Hurley
and Steve Chen, who launched the site 19 months ago from a California
garage.

Up to now the two have been running the company on credit card debts. 

Last night's deal is expected to make them instant multi-millionaires
and deliver huge windfall's to the company's 67-strong workforce.

YouTube has become one of the most popular sites on the web with more
than 100 million video clips viewed every day by an estimated 72
million users.

Clips range from bizarre home videos to snippets of TV shows, music
gigs and sports events - many apparently breaching copyright laws.

In recent weeks, several major record companies, including Universal,
have signed deals with YouTube to distribute clips and protect the
rights of their artists.

Mr Hurley said: "Our community has played a vital role in changing the
way that people consume media."

"By joining forces with Google, we can benefit from its global reach
and technology leadership to deliver a more comprehensive
entertainment experience for our users."

Google chief executive Eric Schmidt plans to turn a profit by adding
adverts to the site.

Internet experts suggest that Google's YouTube coup may put pressure
on Yahoo to buy Facebook.com, the Internet's second most popular
social-networking site.

Yahoo reportedly has offered as much as 790 million for Facebook
which is widely used by UK university students, and students across
the globe, to post information about themselves and share with
friends."

These are the big guys talking about it. There are smaller sites that
are already doing this. I'd like to see a list of about 15. It would
require some creative search terms on Google to find discover some of
these sites.

Hello thehambloke-ga,

Thank you for this interesting question. I have been familiar with the
digitalpoint forums and this concept for some time.

It was an interesting question to research. It does seem that this
idea is spreading quite quickly. I have a list of 15 websites (mostly
forums) that do revenue sharing, most of them with google adsense.
There is some variation beyond this however. All of them have been
verified as revenue sharing websites.

tisme,

Thanks for your response.

What about revenue sharing in an e-zine? Let's say you send out a
monthly newsletter and want to place contextual ads in it? Google
AdSense doesn't allow revenue in e-zines. Any other small Ad
Brokers/Platforms that allow ad placing in e-zines?

ps treat this as a follow-up question.

Hello thehambloke-ga,

I would personally send out a short version of the ezine with links
that lead to the "full article" with contextual advertising.

I believe that http://www.clicksor.com/ will allow contextual
advertising in opt-in email campaigns.

I was unable to find any e-zines that currently use the revenue
sharing model on ppc campaigns, it seems you have an original idea.

I hope this helps!

The newest and probably best site that shares ad revenue with its
users is a company called AGLOCO.  It was started by a group of
Stanford business school students and was only launched a week ago. 
First, you must become a member of the company by giving you there
name and e-mail (no credit card or anything of that nature) (they
don't spam your e-mail adress either).  This sets up your account with
them.  Then, you download a view bar that sits at the bottom of your
web browser and displays advertisements based on which websites you go
to (excluding adult entertainment sites or gambling sites).  For every
hour that you surf the web, you will receive a share of the company
(they are currently in the process of going public on the England
stock exchange).  The maximum number of shares that you can earn per
month is 5.  Furthermore, if you refer someone to to the site who
signs up and downloads the viewbar, you get .25 shares per hour that
they use the internet with the viewbar up.  (So potenially 1.25 shares
per month for every person that you refer).  To find out more
information, search for Agloco on google.  To sign up go to
www.agloco.com/r/BBBD6574 and I will get credit.  (i.e. you become my
referral).  Being someone's referral in no way detracts from how many
shares you can potentially earn.  The number of shares that you earn
is completely dependent on the size of your extended network (i.e. the
number of people that you have referred.  It costs you nothing to sign
up and all you have to do is use the internet the same way that you
always have except you download their viewbar to sit at the bottom of
your web browser for 5 hours a month.  Check it out!  Become my
referral!  Refer others!
