Ads on blogs

I’ve been playing with my blog features, you’ll see why in a few days, and I noticed this link to monetize. I wasn’t sure what it meant, so I clicked on it.

Make Money with AdSense
Earn money by configuring Google AdSense for your blog.

Ads on blogs, oh yea, I’ve seen those. I kind of find them annoying. Almost like spam, but because I visited that site of my own free will I asked for it. Not sure it’s for me or my blog.
Google automatically chooses which ads to show based on your blog's content, and you earn money when visitors view or click on these ads.

OK now I KNOW this isn’t for me. Why? For one thing I don’t just talk about quilting, and who knows what google might decide to put on my site. Imagine what you might find advertised here based on previous posts…
Visit such and such a casino next time you come to Vegas
Buy Raffle Tickets Here
Used Cars for Sale on this site
Weather news direct to your computer
Spam by the case, and recipes to go with it
Find your private retreat in paradise
Hire Lawyer Jo Smow to solve all your mysteries


It’s like the “ads” that Yahoo places on the bottom of Mysteries For Relay group..
One Dollar candy bars, Low minimum Free shipping. Profitable fundraiser.
Your Guide To Home Improvement. All About Relay Sockets.
Update your Usb Relay Driver w/ Official Drivers.
Nope, I will skip that blog feature, but I will be paying attention to other blogs that have them, and asking if they are worth it, anyone ever get any money from the ads? Just wondering.

  1. I used to have the Google ads on my blog. One day, when an ad for a dating service appeared, I canceled. I never did make a cent with these ads.
