I Got a Check From Google


Just as I thought the day might pass with me having nothing to say, the old mail boy comes through.

I got my first check ever from Google.  (I was tempted to make the headline more provocative but then it would just seem like spam.) It was a payoff for some Adsense ads I run on another site. $100 is their minimum payment before they will cut a check, so this represents six months of ads and clicks. If anybody cares, my best click thru rate for one day was 17.74%.  In June, I averaged 2.67%


I got a check for $103.70.  Hope it clears, banks closed until Thursday. 

Let’s see $103.70 for six months, that should be about three tanks full of gas for my new Smart car when it comes. Maybe this internet thing is going to catch on.

  4. Kay: thanks, I made a color copy and framed it! I’ll hang it next to my one share of Apple stock (bought when the price was around $20 (it’s at $120 now, going to $200)

  5. Social net? not like you have any competition :-), you need to come up with a clever widget that will run on blogger or wordpress.com.
