NeoGamr goes adfree!

Well we tried going with a gaming advertiser and that didn't really work out. For May and June the income was less than what a Tier 2 subscription would cost

So for the time being at least, there won't be any adverts on NeoGamr. You are not seeing things, there are really no ads.

Some things to take from this, how quickly NeoGamr loads, is what you get on Neowin from a Tier 2 subscription. Tier 2 subscription does already cover NeoGamr, but you pay for Neowin primarily (additional forums), so we're not screwing our Tier 2 subscribers here.

Traffic to the site isn't great, for the last two months it's at about 500k unique impressions.

I will be looking into serving ads on the site, but only if it's worth it.

Additionally, those that use ad blockers, please keep that to yourself, it isn't nice to gloat ;) and here's some proof that we're willing to concede that showing ads isn't always the smartest option.

NeoGamr, can be offset by Neowin for a bit, but as you might agree, we're not making a dime off running that site (and still paying newsposters here!).

Enjoy it while it lasts, and we appreciate your support.
