once again......Google presents these ads and the mods/admins have no control over them so Google puts whatever adds they want on here.

We could control them by filtering out a url of something we dont' like but frankly those types of ads (targetted image ads) pay more than others so I'm not sure I want to filter them.

Let's just let Chevy/GMC pay our hosting bill for our Ford fan site

Is there any truth to that?

or is it just based on one hit per ip address?

If you click, we do get money. If google sees that a ton of clicks are coming from the same IP address, I think they will "investigate" into click-fraud. But if there are ads you are interested in looking at, then go ahead and click and that'll help us pay our hosting costs!
