    what if I place adsense on my hosting website?

    hi all,

    I am about to finish translating my website to English and setting up payment methods.

    I have taken a look at adsense advertisements about web hosting and I realised that the click bids are very high and the advertised web hosting plans are not much cheaper than my packages.

    These two facts have given birth to an idea of placing adsense codes to my web hosting website and get some income from google so that I can increase my advertising budget.

    What I am worried about is what my visitors will think about this issue. What would you think when you visit such a website?

    Thanks for your opinions and help

    I think it will not be good to have adsense in your hosting site. It looks no serious...just my opinion....

    i dont see how it is a good idea to send your hard earned visitors to your competition....would be much better to try to make the sale and have a recurring monthly income than pocket change from a click...just my thoughts

    This would be very unprofessional, and like shotgun7 already said, it would drive your visitors to other hosting companies.

    Ads would be very useful only if you provide free hosting services.

    I have to ask *why* you would even want to put adsense on your hosting website?

    In under no circumstances do I think you should put adsense on your hosting website.... guess what kind of ads would come up.

    There is no real reason at all. I just want to know more about people's opinion

    I think it would degrade your site and your business not to mention making your website alot less sticky. If you want to make more money then adsense will pay you, I am sure there are a few hosts here that will pay you 20 or $30 per month to put their banner on your website. I am just kidding of course but it is basically the same thing as you will be giving your competition airtime on your site. To sum it up, don't do it

    It looks like banners. I personally cannot stand banners or adsence. On a commercial website in a situation where you are trying to sell to the cutomer it makes for a bad atmosphere.

    What concerns me is if you're having to resort to adsense to help with your hosting income, should you really be in this business? You should have enough money to continue without the need of advertisements on your own site. If you don't then you really shouldn't be in business until you have your financial situation sorted.

    Well, in simple terms customers will not take you seriously. Look at your competition and when was the last time you saw any ad's on there own site?

    I have came to a conclusion that I must erase that tiny little thought of placing ads. to my website right now.

    Yeah, it makes you look quite cheap.

    But to all those people who said about competition. There's a feature in the admin cp in google that you can block out certain sites from advertising. Just put them on a blacklist. Whenever you see another hosting company, copy link go to cp and block it.

    That simple.

    Under no circumstance would I want ads for any market in my business website. But certainly not for competitors.
