Yamaha give us nothing, never have and never will. Oh they have let me review some of their products for sure but when they don't like what I am saying I get kicked into the long grass.

Korg and Roland support their independant user forums but Yamaha are a corporation with a corporate mentality and whilst sites like ours are out there advertising their products for free why would they invest anything in us?

Hence the adsense...which by the way makes a grand total of around £0.05p on a good day :(

"Yamaha give us nothing, never have and never will." :roll:

I didn´t know that. :roll:

£0.05 = 0,05 € Hard work! with adsense.

That's why I have read: Adsense is not worth it.

So! Good luck with the adsense. It's ok.

Yep it might look like Adsense is not worth the hassle but over a long period of time it builds up, not to any substantial amount but might pay to upgrade to a pro version of a WordPress add-on or a template etc. To put it in perspective Adsense has only made £57 since the start of 2017. It is an incredibly slow way to bring in revenue on a forum like this.

If we were a site about weight loss I have no doubt I could have bought a dedicated server by now! ;)

Well you could always search for rogue topics just to confuse Adsense and Saul would still make a modicum income from the bizarre things we search for.

You see the things that Amazon thinks I like just because my good lady has a Kindle linked to my account. ;)
