Google AdSense

I’m following up on the Google AdSense for any of you who are interested in how much prosperity I’ve reaped with my online advertising efforts.  The Google AdSense report says that there’s been a total of 30 clicks on the ads on the left side.  If the clicks come from the same person, they are not worth as much, if new people click on the ads, it makes the clicks worth a little more.  Unfortunately, I can’t figure out how many different people have clicked on the ads, I can just see that they’ve been clicked on 30 times.  I suspect there’s been about 3 different people who’ve clicked on ten ads each. 

These 30 clicks (done by 3 people in my estimation) have generated close to $12 in revenue.  Not very exciting.  In addition, I had to provide tax information to Google and I am sure I will get audited for my online revenue and have to just fork over the money to the IRS.  I think I will just sell the space on the left side and remove the ads.  If anyone wants an ad for them, let me know, I’ll start the bidding at $1 for a month of time.  I can see it now, I am sure I’ll receive all kinds of ficticious responses from former classmates begging for an ad on this amazing site. 

I’m heading back to Atlanta next week for a photoshoot and to meet with my agency.  I am going to try to take some pictures and give you all a feel for what my office is like in Atlanta.  I would try to take pics of the company up here, but the security guards have guns and there’s video cameras everywhere and they’d probably smash my camera and waterboard me until I told them who the pictures were for.

Security Guard:  Who are these pictures for?
RKDeem:  My blog, I wanted to show people my cubicle!
Security Guard:  Come on Deem, we know you’re trying to share company secrets, who are you WORKING FOR?  (plunges my head under water)
RKDeem:  (screaming under water, comes up gasping) Really, I have a blog, I wanted to show people my cube and how there’s no windows anywhere around me.  Please sir, I’m telling the truth!
Security Guard:  (has hammer in his hand and taking off my shoe) Okay tough guy, you want to play hardball, if you don’t tell me who these pictures are for, I am going to smash your toes with this hammer.
RKDeem: (visibly shaking) Okay, okay, these pictures are for San Diego Dave.

  1. By the way, 9 entries away from my 200th entry and 50 comments away from 1,000 comments (including this one).The site had a dip in traffic lately (approximately 600 last week).


  2. Was that 12 bucks per month? That would cover the cost of the site, right?Want to advertise destroyedbymadness???I also have another couple blog-like sites coming out in the next few weeks too. I could monopolize on rkdeem’ers… Whaddaya say?


  3. I guess your right, $12 a month isn’t too bad. Ed actually clicked an ad for Sports Authority and it gave him a coupon for $25 off his purchase. I will take a look to see how I can advertising Destroyed By Madness. Hopefully, it’s not too had for me to add some type of banner.


  4. keep up the ads! i like them. it makes your site feel official. i think maybe the lack of visitors might be because of you’ve been so busy with new baby and everything. it must be tough to write with 2 youngsters. i think you should try to get rid of one of them to focus on your want rkDeemership to go up? do more of your rapid fire entries. the ones where you list topics and write short thoughts on different subjects. those are my favorite. BUT, of course then you are turning your blog into something you might not have intended it to be. you would be selling out.either way i like the rapid fire. and don’t throw dave under the bus.
