Years ago I tried the whole “make money off your website” deal. Most were ad banners that were ads for other ad banners (ePipo, AllAdvantage, etc.). Basically, you’d install a program and it’d cycle through ads on your desktop. You’d be paid for the number of hours that you were “looking at the ads” as well as for the activity of anyone that you signed up down stream.
When the Dotcom collapse hit, most of those programs went away, leaving only the way to earn money on the web (at least by a small web site, like mine) is to link to high-paid trial and class-action laywers Mesothelioma pages. (Don’t get me started…)
Enter Google AsSense. I’ve always been impressed with Google. They’re honest. They’re forward thinking. So, if you notice on the right side of my ‘blog pages you’ll see some simple ads provided by Google. Every time tha tyou click one of those links I’ll have to worry a little less about how I’m going to afford to keep the website running for another week. (No pressure! 😉 )
So I’m going to try it out and see how it works out! Please, let me know what you think about it!
