I've been doing the Google AdSense
thing now for ten months, even since they requested to be here, and in
those ten months, I don't think I've made enough to get a Venti®
White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino® Blended Coffee from Starbucks (not that I
like coffee mind you).
Now, perhaps that's because the ads are (or were) “below the fold” and
therefore not seen. Or perhaps it's because most people read this site via
the RSS feed
so it matters not where the ads are.
But I'm guessing that by moving the ads up (as you can see), I
might see an increase in ad revenue, but I'm not going to hold my
breath on this. Also, by moving the ads up, my Obligatory AdSense Snarks
are more visible and as far as I can tell, making
snarky remarks about AdSense is okay (but telling people to click on the ads
is not okay).
I'm also planning on making a change in that space in the next few days
as I finish (okay okay, start) a feature that will hopefully have a much better
return on investment than this silly Google AdSense.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
