Funding GhostBSD

From GhostBSD Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Help us to keep GhostBSD free, GhostBSD is a free and open operating system who is not sustained by any company like PC-BSD and Ubuntu are. We believe GhostBSD needs to remain free of charge, to keep GhostBSD free and have a full time development team without funding support is nearly impossible.

The goal of GhostBSD is to offer the best BSD desktop experience to compete with other systems. GhostBSD needs full time developers to help us achieve our goal, please consider supporting the project financially, we are hoping that at some point we will be able to fund full-time developers.

Google AdSense.[edit]

What is Google AdSense?[edit]

Google AdSense is a program run by Google Inc. that allows publishers in the Google Network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, and rich media adverts that are targeted to site content and audience. These adverts are administered, sorted, and maintained by Google, they can generate revenue on either a per-click or per-impression basis.

Why Google AdSense?[edit]

GhostBSD needs constant sources of revenue to meet certain needs, Google AdSense helps GhostBSD achieve its goals. Does Google AdSense is good source of revenue?

Google AdSense generates a small amount of revenue, GhostBSD's website does not have a huge amount of traffic which doesn't generate much revenue on impression basis, but any little amount of revenue helps funding the development.
