About Emperor's Domination and Adsense
Xev (2016-08-18 10:36:52)
Inevitable has happened, and Adsense has sent a notice that there has been some sort of copyright infringement, and chapter #561 of Emperor's Domination has been pointed out as an example.
In those cases there are only 5 solutions:
- Deleting Emperor's domination and hoping that it was the only thing they had problems with,
- Hiding Emperor's domination from eyes of the bot, and hoping that it was the only thing they had problems with,
- Switching from Adsense to different ads platform,
- Discarding ads platforms and managing them individually,
- Deleting all ads and switching to Patreon model, where monthly pledges of donation would be the only source of income keeping the website alive.
If anyone wonders what Google Adsense and ads platform are, then in very short it's middleman between those that want sth advertised, and those that want to earn money for displaying ads. Why is it so good? Mostly because it requires zero effort on my part, and there are absolutely zero of annoying ads for readers, so it's perfect even if revenue from ads is subpar. It's also nice because in case of Adsense it displays ads depending on size of your browser (so it won't break page because of ad).
As for what I have chosen, it's obvious - I have selected second option. But it's temporary solution, since who knows when google will strike back, and it doesn't solve the core of the problem.
The ideal solution for me would be 5th option, even if the current revenue were to drop by 30%, because I myself am not fan of ads. Still, I doubt it's possible, and that's why I will in some days create survey for that purpose.
Not ideal, but most realistic option is the 4th option. I have deeply rooted hatred for annoying ads in my bones, and also I am far too lazy and inexperienced with that type of ads, so with all the cons - I am against that solution, even if the pro is most likely rise in the income.
Still, since it's most realistic option then I would appreciate if someone were to share his experience of how self-managing ads works, and how to efficiently deal with it, so that I am not too abruptly awakened from my utopia, and prepared for that case. If someone wishes to contact me, then My Chat Profile is the best way.
So with all that in mind, it's time for you all to pray.

isn't the issue why they find the copyright because you save the chinese characters?

i have no idea regarding ad management!! but the best option looks like no. 3 & 4... i hope everything is sorted out fine!! this site has been a blessing to us all!

@Ryuugen it's one of the possibilities; second simple reason could be that someone has reported it. It's possible to don't show chinese characters for not logged users, but it's still does not solve the core of the problem - it's like juggling red hot charcoal, if you do it quickly enough you won't get burned.
... the point is to solve it, not to prolong the waiting for inevitable.
Also I have forgotten to mention why solution #3 is not good solution. The simplest answer would be, that none ads platforms are as good as google adsense.

And i hope we don't choose option 1. I like this novel very much and read it for nearly 6month. Wish to read it until finish, and thank you very much!

I've added patreon survey.
Vote truthfully. It's far better to ascertain that people won't donate money monthly, and we can't count on that sort of source of income to make website living, than live in utopia.

i think option 3 and 5 are the ones to consider. Hope this gets sorted out fast
dahi (2016-08-18 15:54:26)
I think this problem is related to availability of chinese characters for ongoing novels

Why talk about what options you hope don't happen or you want sev to pick when we can't do shit about this other than number 5

I geast chouse 3

@IJustWantToReadShit it's called foreshadowing, and hoping that maybe someone can notice flaws in my loud-thinking, and propose something better or would share his knowledge with me on the matter.
Anyway, based on current results of the survey - it's impossible for Patreon to completely replace ads, but I guess I will sit down and write code for benefits proposed for patreons, so that I can someday introduce it (as addition to ads, as additional source novels), so that if Google says "Hasta la vista, baby", we won't wake with hand in the toilet.

Google is not the only onlune adadvertise service available. Remove Google ads off of series that they provided examples for and use another ads service.
Also, are you against using porn~hentai ads? If you are, then oh well.

Porn ads are inconvenient. You can't visit the site while in a public place or when there are people around.
StaticHD (2016-08-26 22:28:50)
"Inconvenience" is one thing, while "Survival" is another.
