What keeps Fluther going?

Asked by john65pennington (29187points) October 2nd, 2010

I enjoy Fluther and asking and answering questions. Since Fluther does not accept ads or commercials, then what keeps Fluther floating? Question: Who pays Fluthers bills?

@john65pennington I think I see ads on here. I guess that’s what pays for it.

There is a ton of ads if you are not logged in.

This site is loved by Google. Most of the traffic is probably from searches.

edit :: That blank box was a flash ad for the show Glee. I’m not sure why it didn’t show up.

On top of the advertising (that only shows up if you’re not logged in), they also have some investors. Here is a story from last year. I can’t specifically recall any more recent ones, but I’m fairly sure there’s more.

Lots of ads (as already mentioned) that members don’t have to see. Which I love, btw. Also, a lot of hot air. ;)
