The big SEO Forum news of the day is that Cre8asite Forums has made the bold jump from ad-less forums to a forum with ads. Kim wrote up a detailed announcement she named Attention Cre8asiteforums Community. To make a long story short, this is the first time ads are on the forums, since they started in 1998. So what do the ads look like? It depends; If you are not logged in you get Google AdSense ads at the top and bottom of the page, here is a screen capture. But if you are a registered member that is logged in you get the ads only at the bottom of the page.

Kim explains how they are experimenting in phases;

We will be experimenting with the ad placements and limiting the number of ads, so that we can maximize clickthroughs and minimize banner blindness. We also invite you to give us your constructive comments on how we can improve our advertising campaign. Our goal is strike a reasonable balance between maximizing our advertising revenue and avoiding ad overload.

The members are very supportive so far, shows you something about the respect the Cre8asite admins and mods earned from the member base. Not all forums would have been so supportive. Add your feedback at the Cre8asite Forums Thread.

On a somewhat related note; WebmasterWorld placed a cute ad, wouldn't actually call it an ad, to show support for UT. Forum discussion on that at WebmasterWorld.
