These Search Requests Are What I’m Trying to Monetize

I’ve had Google AdSense up for a month now, and it’s netted me a grand total of $7.05. That’s not much – especially considering that at this rate, I won’t see my $100 minimum check until 2008 – but it is enough to cover web hosting and domain registration, which is more than I expected.

Most of the ad clicks have been from people who came here from a search engine. Like this week’s crop of hilarious search requests:

  • erode penis
  • women would use a penis better than males
  • porn painted like cows
  • those who think a whore is not a whore and use words like reject?
  • “The alphabet song” notation
  • hidden meaning shirts i own you
  • GREEN SHIT .CO.
  • Exploded Moms
  • Cheap Thermonuclear
  • who is the scariest liberal today – I’m the 3rd scariest! Wooooo!

… though sadly, the search terms that bring in actual cash money have been much less entertaining. My hosting bills are now paid by people looking for tie-dye backgrounds and my expert opinions on cheap wine.

    bizarrely (and kind of upsettingly) all my hits now come from people searching for a 9/11 picture of a guy leaping to his death from an office building. somehow in linking to that picture oh-so-many years ago, I ended up hosting it? it doesn’t make sense to me.

    “porn painted like cows” is pretty good though. well done there.

    Do you want us all to click on your Google ads a lot to bring you money? I hear that ads for lab equipment can bring in the cash. ;)

    Google’s terms of service expressly forbid me from expressing such desires. Have you been seeing ads for lab equipment? I just get revolutionary new blog publishing tools and religious study aids.
