If you’ve noticed I’ve removed all the Adsense from this blog!
Say no to Adverts for personal blogs, yah!
I’ve also moved the referal stuff down to the bottom of the sidebar so it’s no in your face anymore, I do support Firefox so I might move that one back up.
You can use this button to support the cause 😉
You can copy and paste this code to get the banner:
Anyway…now it’s gone I noticed the pages load much faster, and it looks neater of course.
I did it as an experiment anyway, it didn’t make much money, I can show you exactly how much in fact.
Yeah this is over almost 2 years, kind of sad eh.
(No this is not against the Adsense TOS – As long as you don’t show eCPM or CTR you are ok).
You agree not to disclose ………(b) click-through rates or other statistics relating to Site performance in the Program provided to You by Google; …….However, You may accurately disclose the amount of Google’s gross payments to You pursuant to the Program
So yeah you can say I’ve been there and done that.
I think personal blogs shouldn’t be polluted with ads, that’s why I never put anything else in here like Chitika or similar, I just have Text Link Ads which I’ll keep as they are very unobtrusive.
If you want to make money from blogging, get a domain, and create a real blog on one subject with niche content and real quality articles.
If you blog about a variety of subjects and personal stuff, don’t bother with ads as it’s just annoying and slows your site down.
It doesn’t really earn anything, this money I earned from this domain is barely enough to pay for the hosting.
Personal blogs are destined to make little or no money due to the way contextual advertising works. If your subjects are too scattered your ads won’ be properly targeted so you’ll get all the non-targeted adverts which have horribly low eCPM rates.
So do everyone a favour and take the 3 embedded adblocks out of your posts and get a real job, or make a real nice blog if you do want to make money from the intrawebnets.
Anyway don’t be a sucker, remove your ads.
BTW do keep commenting please, it makes me so happy 😀 That means comments that are relevant to the topic, not just random shite 😛
