I was just trying around to monetize my site http://www.belgaumpages.com which runs on wordpress. Since it is an wordpress multi user platform , i could not get a way to place ads on the member blogs easily. Searching for an plugin to do that went in ruin. Finally after months of analysis i found an easy way place ads on buddypress sites. In one way this may not be similar to normal plugins, you can even consider it to be a buddypress hack. For those who don’t know what is buddypress , here is an overview :
” BuddyPress will extend WordPress MU and bring social networking features to a new or existing installation.
BuddyPress is a suite of WordPress plugins and themes, each adding a distinct new feature. BuddyPress contains all the features you’d expect from WordPress but aims to let members socially interact. ”
Buddypress Ads Plugin :
This plugin will allow you to publish ads through your buddypress site(with wordpress mu) Supports multiple ad networks including adsense , adbrite and many more. Just replace the ad code below with your own ad code. This is the easiest way to monetize to wordpress mu and buddypress community.
