So... is adsense bad?

I've decided to put an adsense pod on the site. Please don't misinterprate my intentions! If not a single person clicks an ad, no skin off my nose. If, however, I mange to break the 100 dollar mark, the family is going to Chuckee Cheese! Seriously, it gives me a break given that it's winter time in a REALLY small house ;). So, don't click if you don't want. I'm not trying to make a living off of these ads, but opinions are welcome.

Kevin Sargent's Gravatar NO! NOT BAD.

How some people use them is not cool, plastered all over, to tightly blended into content, a website of NO VALUE with ads all over.

The 100-$200 / month step might take time, but it's easily attainable. I would not expect much from a technical oriented blog though. the visitors of anything tech related sites block ads either mentally or with software / plug ins.

My best $$ site is consumer level - my worst is tech.

charlie griefer's Gravatar i've made $3.05 to date (about 3-4 weeks now)...which is $3.05 more than i expected to make, really.

so why do i have the ads up at all? same as you. if i break $100, it's a nice dinner out with the wife with relatively little effort put into it.

Matthew Williams's Gravatar OK, cool. That jives with how I feel about these, and if the ads are too obnoxious, away they go.

Kevin's Gravatar honestly, I didn't even notice them. Good and Bad. Good = not annoying. Bad = no one else will see them either.

If you're interested in experiencing adsense, start a new www on a topic that you truly enjoy that is not tech related. I say give it a go.
