My job function is RR software development. The goal is to enhance site appeal and in turn increase traffic. My income is derived from RR banner advertising. I appreciate the overwhelmingly positive feedback over the last two months. I am resolved to turn this ship around. Please stay tuned.

a few years ago you made some reference into expanding into other RC hobby sites such as fixed wing, surface and maybe a dedicated Multi-Rotor RR site(s) - do you think your business model could support this effort? Maybe start a multi-rotor site and drive traffic this way, especially the FPV racers - some random thoughts. Glad to see you are continuing with RR for us single rotor fans!

On your side Mark. I'm one RR once or twice a day. We should tell our vendors that we visit RR and would like to see them advertising on this site.

You tell the advertisers every time you click on an advertisement on this website. Click and help Mark get paid.

According to the indicator there are 450 on line right now. 450 folks with disposable income, and in most cases a serious addiction problem.

There are some good products being advertised. Scorpion motors and drives is one i am interested in now. Glad they stepped up... Where are adds for FBL units? Heli kits? Goggles?

Maybe all advertisers does not have to be heli related. I'm 100% ok if I see a geico, allstate or Honda ad on this site. It's basically how a lot of other sites are run.

ah no... I come here for Heli related stuff...

I dont want to see ads for depends, hemorrhoid creme, used cars, the latest pharmaceutical drug or the worlds most interesting man...

Ads not related to THIS hobby trash up the site.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

When logged in it will always be (as now) on topic advertising. I am considering using Google Adsense display ads when NOT logged in. I have sneaking suspicion that doing so would increase RR's Google ranking.

Given a choice between RR staying alive, and Ad Sense adverts, I will gladly take the Ads.

Lesser of two evils. We need to promote RunRyder when ever possible. Mark is doing as much as he can.

Being a software developer I can tell you from experience that there is a very fine balance between growing your websites active member count and falling off the deep end with advertisers... as they dont care about how many visitors you get on your site but rather how many "Come" from your site.

advertisers dont automatically go and reciprocate the favor either... when it comes to google and yahoo for example, you pay to be at the top of their list.

granted Im sure Mark already knows this:

There are quite a variety of folks from the heli and plane industry who should be advertising here

The recession and rapid turnover in technology did a lot of damage to the hobby, but that cycle is about to end IMO. Some Mom and Pop hobby shop wanting to amp up their sales by selling on line might find that now or very soon might be the time to jump in. I am told my favorite old shop here (RIP) sold online and it represented nearly half of their business.

I did a lot of shopping on line over the long weekend, I found a couple great planes and parts that I will very likely love, and great deals, but it literally took days. I rarely make that much effort. Sellers should be making the effort to find us too.
