Since the question "can I make money off my site?" comes up every few days, here's a sticky where info on this question can be consolidated. It'll probably be ported into the wiki one of these days too. Yay!
Here is a list of things you can and can't have on your Comic Genesis site:
Things you can have without problems:
-Stores, such as Cafe Press or Lulu.
Things you can't have in any way, shape or form:
-Google ads or any other type of ads service that looks like the mandatory one. (This violates CG/Keenspot's agreement with the ad provider)
Things you can have if you jump through a few hoops:
-Adspace for which *you* control what shows up (as an example, "pay me 20$ and I'll link to your comic on my front page for a month!"). However, for this to be tolerated, you have to leave the mandatory ads in place and contact Keenspot to establish the terms of your profit-sharing. Profit-sharing is mandatory.
NOTE FROM KELLY: Let me take a moment here to explain things. CG is part of KeenSpot Entertainment. The ads on your site are through Keenspot, which is why you can get KeenSpot PREMIUM and have the ads removed. It's also why you have to deal with KeenSpot over ad sharing. Kisai and I have no access to the ad system, so any inquiries will be sent or pointed to KeenSpot. You may resume the regular post --STrw
This topic will be updated if comicgenesis policies change and with new information brought about by questions from our most brilliant comgenners. If you have questions and are/were/will be/might be/would have been a brilliant comgenners, post away.
