If you're visiting this page, there's a good chance that you find ads on websites as annoying as I do. MandoTabs was born as a way to share my passion with others and its main purpose remains the sharing of mandolin knowledge freely with its users. However when navigating the website you will see several ads scattered across the pages. Why?
In short, maintaining a website costs money and the contribution from the ads are meant to help me with these costs. Definitely when MandoTabs was raising in popularity it was quite a financial challenge. At this moment there are thousands of registered users, millions of visitors each month and a database of several gigabytes with all of the resources of MandoTabs.
The main costs are:
- Domain: the cost of keeping the name of the website
- Hosting: the cost of keeping MandoTabs online
These are the bare minimum costs for keeping MandoTabs online. Continued maintenance, development, writing guides and adding songs is done out of the passion that I share for the ukulele.
The bare server costs run into the thousands per year, excluding my own spent time and side costs. The ads help take some of the sting out of that cost.
