Now with 100% Less AdSense



My experiment with AdSense is now over. While the ads ran I had over 3000 visitors, and earnings were USD $2.07. Hardly worth the valuable real estate in the side bars - in my humble opinion. Yes, I realize there are things I could do to optimize that - but I dont wanna - so there!

I also dont wanna be no stinkin' "niche" blog either. (Just need to get that out of my system, Ta!)

Have a great saturday, and I will see you all tomorrow for Budgie Sunday!

Lavender, I cannot believe that AdSense pay stinks. I've changed my opinion since and now really don't mind visiting blogs with AdSense or any form of advertisements as long as the blog keeps my interest.

Lavender said...

Peter - Thank you very much. All other options lead to not being me, and that would stink pretty quickly :)

Ces - I agree if a blog has interesting content than I dont mind the ads either.

I don't know if it is related, but your blog loaded faster just then! I've always been against AdSense in my own blogs ... looking for ward to Budgie Sunday :)

Lavender said...

Oooh, faster loading would be a nice perk! :)
Still havent decided who is getting the Budgie Sunday feature this week...maybe it will depend on who is sweeter to me in the morning hahaha!!

I've found that Adsense is pretty useless as well. No one cliicks on the ones I have.

Text Link Ads are earning me more than that - they're not pay per click.. maybe it's worth checking out.. ;)

Glad to see that you weren't corrupted by lure of so much cash!

Lavender said...

Ahoy Captain! Not just me then, Thanks! I figured if no one is clicking then they arent useful to the readers either - feels good to be free!

Snoskred - Thanks for the tip, Im not sure they are for me either, but a reader may enjoy the pointer, Cheers!

Barkfoot - LOL It was a terrible battle really :)
