In the spirit of not wasting your time ….
Google Ads were for me a complete waste of time. For me.
I made .08 cents a day over the past weekend, starting Friday afternoon. And that was with a new video release Friday which always generates a good deal of traffic for me.
“I earned .08 cents a day with Google ads – WOOHOOO!”
Now here’s where some would say … now hang on there ThinkerThunker, you just started your site. Be fair.
My site is brand new. And I didn’t hire any web experts or designers, I pieced this thing together with duct tape and bailing wire. And have no idea what I’m doing here. But she’s holding up pretty well. Traffic wise.
Surprisingly I found my site over the past 30 days had over forty thousand unique visitors.
And I checked another site called “SimilarWeb.com” to verify those stats. I was shocked to learn ThinkerThunker.com is already ranked 94,728th of all American websites, and 416,376th out of every single site in the world.
Now I realize 416,376th in the world might not sound too good. Until you factor in that there are 1.7 BILLION websites – live – in the world right now! According to internetlivestats.com/
So 416,376th place ain’t too bad for a newbie. That puts my little site in the top 2 1\2 percent, traffic wise in the whole world!
Which means I would have to have Instagram’s traffic to make enough with Google ads to be able to buy a couple of Happy Meals for my wife and I.
I’m exaggerating a bit. But you get my point.
So that was my experience with Google ads. And now I’m happy to say Google ads are GONE! I yanked en!
Not that I didn’t appreciate the .25 cents I earned. I just wonder how in the world Google is going to stay a MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR POWERHOUSE in business if everyone gets results similar to mine?
And since I don’t have a Facebook account, and never will … looks like I’m back to just having Patreon.com and my familiar tshirt, cap and tip me with Paypal banners. Live and learn. I’m figuring this out as I go 🙂
Thanks for reading! And thank you all for being here. This is your site too.
We’re a community. Be proud.
I feel bad now. Once the smoke settled I found that Google ads had paid me more than double what I said. It was .45 cents, not .25.
So now TheMissus and I are gonna take that .45 cents and take a nice, long vacation on some sunny beach for a while. All compliments of Google 🙂
