    Actually I found one much better and MUCH EASIER to use as a random image script. This one kicks ass!! Wooohooo. 10% click through rate here I come! (just kidding)

    PHP compatibility necessary...

    Add me to the list Virus Definitions.

    Should be interesting to see how it works out. I am now tracking these, so it won't take long.

    PS: Any thoughts on the new layout?

    Very nice job...

    Just an idea.. but maybe if you got rid of the very large header image, the adsense ads with images would stand out even more?

    Added age of the pig drawing under the pigs thumbnails (as a date/time will be wrong for non-UK people)

    Added link to draw a pig from the page where you view a drawing (for people how are linked to it)

    Added forum code they can copy which does the following:

    Dave's pig
    [​IMG]

    Hmmm NewComputer, the faint arrows you have put either side of the images pointing at the googleAds is a big dodgy, don't know what G would say... but I think it is wrong for you to "point" at ads and infer that the image of "AVG antivirus" is to be found at the link under it "Spyware Virus Remover" (pctools.com)

    On another note... nice images :p

    And there is some wasted space on the left... under the "home" button... if you make the middle table fit the full width of the menu your virus terms will not take up so many lines and your page wont be so long (this will give you a larger scrollbar = easier to scroll)

    I was about to say the same thing. It's against the TOS to "draw undue attention" to adsense. And people have gotten warnings in the past for have arrows pointing to their ads.

    That may increase CTR, but at the cost of loosing a visitor to my site, I think having someone on my site is worth more than a click.

    My CTR Has Really Increased After, yesterday's update!
    Now I will do image rotation too! but I wann this new update to stay for some time, but I will make the changes @ bollyheat.com, an entertainment! site with very good traffic!

    Edit: Added the Image Rotator!
    Thanks LetsMakeamillion, It really helped. Now Images Rotate but the problem with this script is that you need to specify a different folder for the images if you rae using more then one instance of the script i.e if you are calling this script more than once you need to put the rotate.php in diff folder's other wise same images are shown on all calling instances!

    Heh...I'm surprised to read this from you :confused: , as you posted my student credit card site as an example for all to see. Did you not see the arrows on my site? The fact that "newcomputer" has decided to emulate the arrows should be no surprise to anyone, though the arrows he has fashioned are wider and therefore more apparent than mine.

    Just so everyone knows I am on the up and up, I have removed on side and made the drop shadow more apparent on the other:

    The other pages will happen when I get back from the gym...

    Looks cool; looks a lot more like a drop shadow now.

    I never even looked at it like an arrow until it was pointed out, but sure enough, it did. I still don't think it was against the TOS, but just to be safe...

    Thanks to G... after 2 months on the program, getting this to cope :)

    Two 64-bit Intel XeonTM processors at 3.2GHz
    1MB L2 cache
    2GB DDR-2 SDRAM
    Two 147GB 10,000RPM Ultra320 SCSI drives
    100Mbps Network Connection
    Intel PRO/1000 MT single port Gigabit NIC (at 100Mbps)
    2000GB Data Transfer

    needed as the sites are generating bandwidth bills that are eating away at G earnings.


    God I love this bizz :p

    Congrats Iman.

    One of these days I will test out the images idea as it seems to be helping everyone.
