Google Paid Me!
Oh happy day!
I installed Google’s AdSense banners on this site back in February 2006, but took them down for a while while I was still in the midst of theme-switching. By that time I had accrued less than $20, so I really wasn’t concerned. I eventually added one back around November, and immediately I was making at least few dollars a month.
Around February of this year, the AdSense dollars per month was averaging out to be around $10 which is also coincidentally the same price of my web host. Basically The Daily Haggis was paying for itself, which pleased me to no end.
With the last redesign I added the additional ad banner on the sidebar and now it’s actually pushed the monthly earnings closer to $15-18. I’m actually making a profit off this silly website! (Roars with laughter)
Anyway, now that I’ve caught my breath, I’m excited today because I finally reached the $100 mark which is when Google will actually send you a check or (in my case) direct deposit right into your bank account. After the month of processing and such, today I noticed a $115 increase in my bank account.
Hooray! Now I’m going to go party on Google’s dime!
