I have a very busy blog. Not this one, but my other one. You know, the zombie one. It gets a lot of traffic. I applied for word ads from wordpress and thought, what the heck? maybe I’ll make some money.
So, in the first month I signed up during the last week of the month, and made about $5.50. For June, I had my busiest month ever, well past 15,000 views in june, and I made $4.44.
How did I make more in the first 1 week where I had about 3500 visitors than I did in an entire month of June where I had 15,000? Seriously? 15,000 views equals $4.44? That’s an abysmal pay per impression. Enough that it’s not worth bothering my readers with. Half a million views to get to my $100 minimum payout, of which paypal is going to take a chunk? Ridiculous. Don’t waste your time.
