Hi, I run a 1700+ member group on yahoogroups and after several efforts at monetizing it to sustain the effort, found that I needed a websit
Add functionality for each yahoogroup to have a website where ads can be posted, group blogs can be run, the group can see the calendar of events in one view - This will bring Yahoo a lot of money from group admins that want to monetize their yahoogroup. Yahoo can sell domain links and the website functionality as well. With the stickiness Yahoogroups create, its only the next best addition the Yahoo team can make to Yahoogroups. Check out www.newportmommy.com for seeing what yahoogroups that need to monetize are resorting to - you are throwing your money to competitors in the space!
We need to have Yahoogroups be monetized like Google Adsense. It takes a lot of time to put a link on each post. Please make a way for Yahoogroup owners to make a little bit of money from all the time it takes to approve posts and run the list!!!!
