View Full Version : Anyone use/recommend AdSense?
01-19-2005, 10:43 PM
I've been trying to figure out how much it pays per click but am having no luck. Is it dependent on how much the advertiser is paying google? The screenshot on their site makes it appear to be about $.70.
Does anyone use it on their site? If so, is it relatively painless about getting cash out to you, etc.?

Unfortunately, you're not going to find a clear answer on this. Google is tight-lipped about it, and they make AdSense users (myself included) tight-lipped about it as well.
Basically though, it depends on the content of your site. It's not a flat fee per click... it's a percentage of the fee Google gets. Certain ads pay more than other types of ads. I hear the big one right now is online pharmacies... they'll pay $10 for a single click. You'd get a percentage of that $10. But if the advertiser pays Google only $.10 per click, you'll get a percentage that that dime.
I've had excellent luck with AdSense and highly recommend them. Google is one of the companies out there who people trust and like, and the ads aren't annoying, flashy, distracting pieces of garbage.

I should have figured there was a non-disclosure agreement built in to their TOS. I briefly considered loading it up on my site, but realized that there is nowhere near enough traffic to make any money doing that and it would, at best, be ignored by visitors. It's just been something in the back of my head ever since I first heard about it and how it would change the face of advertising.
Thanks for the info.
