Did it say something like, "Maximize revenue from online advertising."?

So you saw that ad I posted up there, and you said, "Hey, good-looking. Why yes, I am interested in maximizing my revenue...oh never mind. This is too ridiculous."? Is it relevant why you said that?

Does it matter that the ad has appeared in the LTPF for the past few days? Is the idea that if you really were interested in maximizing your revenue, you wouldn't be wasting time doing lateral puzzles? :)

Is it because you believe that only poor people visit LTPF, so posting an AD here wouldn't be profitable?

Why I said "Hey, good-looking. Why yes, I am interested in maximizing my revenue..." to an internet ad.

None of the above, but thanks for the insinuations. It's a pretty ridiculous answer, remember...hint will come soon.

Was it because you wanted to head on down to Coh Town? And you felt that maximizing your revenue would be the only choice?

Not sure what that means, but I'm gonna say no.
Hint:
This has to do specifically with something on this site, and a bit of a play on words.

I think you are trying to trick me. What is "this site"? lateralpuzzles.com, I thought.

This may be a long shot, but are the rules relevant?

It's fine to disagree strongly with opinions, ideas, and facts, but always with respect for the other person. Great minds do not always think alike, and that's where the fun is!

It's not in here, but you're very close. It's an instruction, of a sort.

I know what it is!
Please occasionally hit on one of the adverts as this helps defray the costs of running the forum.

Exactly!
***************SPOILER
Congratz to Doctapeppa for staying with this one long after I had abandoned hope.

On the main page, it says Please occasionally hit on one of the adverts as this helps defray the costs of running the forum. Now, in my neck of the woods, to "hit on" definitely means "to flatter a person on hopes of getting a date". So I tried to hit on this particular advertisement, but it was just...too silly.
