Feigning normality since 1973

Experimenting with Adsense

Filed in: Website Management.

Out of interest, I slapped Google Adsense on here a month or so ago, to see what would happen. It didn't make enough money to counteract the deep, deep shame I felt in having adverts on my weblog, so now they're gone again.

I suspect the problem was twofold: 1) the contextual adverts weren't relevant enough, and 2) users tend to ignore most adverts these days anyway. Oh well. :)

In a dark moment last year, I decided to run AdSense on BMR. I never really liked the idea, but there was always that slim possibility of making a little green.

I came to my senses a few months later, but not before it was painfully obvious I was never going to cash in like all those AdSense splogs out there.

I might be a little poorer, but now I sleep a little easier. :)
