Dive Into AdSense

Everyone else has jumped off the bridge, so I have too. This week I signed up for Google AdSense, and I’m in the process of playing around with ad placement on this site. Now, you can be assured that I’m not going to have those huge squares in the middle of my paragraphs, or anything like that. But I will be trying out different things, and since you’re allowed three ad boxes on a page, I just might work up to that many.

Right now I’ve got ads in my left sidebar there, below the Amazon.com tip jar. And if you click through to an archive page, you’ll see ads between the post and the comments. Feel free to ignore them, just like you do on so many other sites. And feel free to laugh at how the ads are hidden behind the blogroll if the post is too short.

Too long I’ve been on the outside looking in on AdSense. Now I’ll be able to understand how it works. And, since most of my traffic comes from Google anyway, maybe I’ll even get a few stray clicks here and there!
