Revenue ad-sharing is a great idea, but it could be a lot more effective than it is now.Hahah, jeez, it's only been out for like 12 hours man!
But seriously, I think your ideas/suggestions are really interesting. Perhaps you could do both though: have a blanket ad on your page that appeals to the primary demographic of NG, as well as a fine tuned ad. That way you scoop up the people who deliberately visit your pages as well as the randoms. Either have two ads, or ads that rotate (like those big billboards with the motorized clacking slats... I'll never get tired of watching those).
Another, maybe easier-to-implement idea to make the ads more relevant and therefore more profitable (other than Project Wonderful) might be to allow users to choose from a list of keywords that describe their content. The sort of ads that appear on their page would then be determined from these keywords.
If the user chooses to not enter any keywords, the ads that appear would be just the standard ones.
