Apparently, when you put up Google ads to make money off people clicking on them, you’re supposed to pretend they’re not there!

According to the e-mail I received from the AdSense team, I was not supposed to encourage people to click on the ads. They did, however, include the same response that everyone else is getting–that Google is looking at the feasability of the idea of pooling AdSense revenue into a donation for disaster relief. So, perhaps by the end of the week, we might know if putting up these things has been worth it.

(I wrote a big ole spittle-filled rant about Google’s slow response to this crisis and how they’re just raking in the bucks and letting the little bloggers pledge to donate their pitiful revenues to relief organizations, but I’ll give them a chance to step up to the plate first. Big of me, huh?)

    Huge of you man. Huge…lol
    And yeah, no encouraging people to click. They frown on getting people to notice the ads I guess. 😉

    Because you aren’t paying attention to them or recommending us to click through on them, let me ask one tiny question…I thought that the Google Ads were placed according to your site content….but your ads are well…odd…Gospel Light and Children’s Ministry always there. I don’t recall many God or Jesus messages here. Did you pick the theme of the ads?

    If you look at the ads in the individual entries, they (mostly) go along with the theme of the post. I think the ones up on the sidebar are stuck with church ads because they’re right below the disaster relief plea. I guess.

    So, let’s have some fun and “place entries” to feed the Google matching machine. I think I’d like to see an entry about lemon flavored toilet paper. Let’s see what that gets us!

    I was kinda wondering how much of the screen has to develop before hitting the “back” button, to count as a “hit”….
