Just Because I'm Nice

I read an article in a magazine about a girl who made millions off her blog. Why? Well, for one thing she had great content and many readers. But how did she make all that money, you ask? She added the Google Adsense feature to her blog. Simply put, Adsense allows ads to appear on your site or blog, and every time someone clicks on the ad, you get a certain percentage, and I think that for every 1000 clicks, you get paid as well.

Anyhoo, I thought, wow! What a great way to make money! By just blabbing to your ‘imaginary’ cyber friends/readers, you can make mega-bucks online! I thought the Adsense thing was probably complex and hard to use. But I decided to give it a try.

It worked! I have ads on my blog now. And. They. Suck.

All I get is stupid ads about meeting ‘Sexy Arabs’ or ‘Meet Single Muslims’. How tacky! How not me! And definitely not for my blog! I reported it, and we’ll see how it goes. In the meantime, if you see those stupid-ass things, please don’t judge me. But if you wanna click on them, be my guest. You don’t want to be single forever, now do you?

Even though that part sucked, there is a nice feature. It’s that search thingy on the top, right below the header. It’s basically the same Google search engine as in the Google site, and it has an internal search as well. If you want to search for something I wrote in this blog, type it in the Search bar, choose ‘thisladysays.blogspot.com’ and click Search. It works. It’s fab!

I just checked my Adsense account to see how much I’ve made this week. I made $0.01. That’s one cent! Wahahahaha..

At this rate, this lady will make $1 after 100 days. Bill Gates is probably going green with envy.

Hopeless Poet said...

And how will they give you the money? You put you bank information? :O

This Lady said...

No they send u a check once you reach $100. And then they send u a monthly check but only if ur earnings r above $100.

If u make less than that in a month, they just add it to the next month and so on.

ammaro said...

haha, thats funny :) adsense wont make you much unless you seriously get down and target specific people, and get thousands of them checking out your site daily... otherwise, you're not making much here :p but hey, a few dollars extra every year aint bad for free money, huh?

WendyB said...

LOL @ "Sexy Arabs"!

Marzouq said...

lllooooll! I have seen some of those ads, and people have asked to put Ads on my site and I have been thinking of just keeping it Ad free, looks cleaner for me :)

I hope you make those millions! lol
