Apologies to Google

I just made a blogging boo boo and want to say sorry to Google Adsense. Google must take part of the blame though.

I just committed the sin of clicking one one of my own Google Ads - because it caught my interest. I wrote a post on laughter therapy a couple of weeks ago and clever Google Adsense Bot (I am just assuming there must be one) "read" this post and delivered an ad for a laughter therapy session taking place in my home town of Melbourne. Very clever really.

I included the image because it made me smile and I thought it may do the same for you.

I think I may do an experiment and include some words I would not normally use, to see if they get picked up on by Adsense. It is not that I think I will make any money out of adsense but I am now curious as to how responsive it is to my content.

Google - you can have my $0.00000000000001 adsense payment back if you want it. In the future if I see anything of interest on there I will just copy the link and go to it from the browser rather than from this blog.

I don't think it is my day - I just discovered that my sidebar has lost my treasured rocking girl blogger badge. If anyone sees it please send it back via Google - they know where to find me!! (sometimes I wonder what this "big brother" doesn't know about me).

Great blog! but we need high traffic to earn. One way get this is a link exchange, so I hope we can exchange our link especially when you register under technorati - leave your answer in my blog Google adsense

I'm wondering which part of Melbourne.

Mate I've been blogging two years. I used to occasionally click on Adsense ads that I found interesting - didn't think they'd mind or notice. Wrong. I got a "please explain" email from them. But when I pointed out that I made bugger-all out of Adsense (this was 2 years ago) they didn't take it any further; But yeah..."thou shalt not click on thy own ads" - they consider it "clickfraud" even if it's only the odd one. BTW since optimizing my site I'm pulling over $100 a month from Adsense with 30,000 Unique Vistors a month. It's been a struggle though. I talk about it on my site http://www.welcometowallyworld.com (hosted through Squarespace). And as "geniusideas" above has pointed out - you need plenty of traffic to earn good money on Adsense and affiliate ads. à bientôt, Malkie (Aussie in Paris)

Sir James
I often wonder which part of Melbourne too - which part I want to live in and can afford to live in.
The laughter therapy session is in TBA, which must be next to TBB - sounds like one of the high rise office blocks down St Kilda Rd to me :-)

At least they did not cut you off without asking for an explanation, Malkie; thats a relief. Been reading your blog and discovered your post on how to find profitable keywords. I was unaware of the keyword tools but will make a mention about them and your article in a post.
