Holy Moly

by Volker Weber

Half a year ago I was all excited because there were 48855 page impressions in a week. The site was hovering at 30000 at that time. Well, now it's three days down for this week, four to go. And we already crossed that mark without any spikes. Just business as usual. If you are counting hits instead of page impressions we are looking at the 40000 to 50000 range. Daily. I bet, at the end of the year I will think these are small numbers.

If those click-trough rates on the ads improve as well, I can afford a new pair of shoes soon ... :-)

New shoes? How extravagant ;-)

Did you see that Tim Bray is earning more than $500/month with his Google ads? Amazing.

Indeed, amazing. And when do you start to subsidize an iBook purchase? :-)

Heh heh. Last time I tried, Google wouldn’t have me ;-)

Context sensitive ads can really add value to web pages, delivering relevant links and ads regarding topics related to your sites' content. That's why AdSense really works for both readers and publishers: the readers can satisfy their impulse buying needs, and the publishers can benefit from the click-throughs.

However, I recently noticed that some companies are using context sensitive ads to lure customers away from their competitors' business. The last weeks, I visited several PalmOS related sites, that showed the same Micro$oft Windows Mobile ad. That's smart advertising of them, but might get a few Palm worshippers very angry. I'm curious when we're going to see Outlook or Exchange (pardon my French) ads on your pages, Volker!
