I have removed Google Adsense from this Site!

For nearly the past 9 months my Google Adsense earnings have been absolutely crap and in all honesty I don’t know why. For a period of at least three years the site earned between $125.00 and $200.00 a month by having Google Adsense on the site.

For the past 9 months the earning level has been absolutely horrible, probably no more than $20.00 a month tops was being earned with the ads on the site.

Nothing really changed here traffic is at normal levels and growing yet the performance of those ads was criminal. So I have pulled them off completely and will be looking around for some better ways to populate the third column real estate.

One thing that both GoDaddy and Citrix have figured out is that the podcast creates engagement and people support the show by buying and using their products and services. The shocking thing is why have not more companies figured out what the folks at GoDaddy and Citrix have.

Regardless see you later Google Adsense you have earned some time in purgatory.

  1. To be honest, I don’t see Google AdSense ads because I use Firefox with AdBlocker enabled. I don’t see any ads at all, on any websites, ever.

    When you complained about the ads on TechCrunch, I had to turn off adblocker to see what you were seeing. I’m sooooo glad for this Firefox plugin…it makes surfing so much better for me!
