You may believe that, with these irritating ads on my blog, I'm pretty rich. I could leave my job and make a living with my writing. Being every day in my underwear and write some shit about anything. And SCHLING SCHLING, the cash comes in, day after day.
Well, you're fucking wrong.
Somewhere in march 2016, ads were added on this blog. I've never had any control about these ads. I gave the permission to Google to show any kind of ads.
I don't know what you're viewing at home, but at my home, I often see some crazy dating sites like "voisins solitaires". I don't understand it because I never visit that kind of website. Maybe Google has an algorithm telling that a guy with my habits like watching 70's and 80's music videos on Youtube has the habit of jerking off in front of the computer, watching girls with big boobs licking some popsicle.
Anyway, after about one year with that Google Adsense, I've got 112$ to claim. Which is equivalent to less than 10$ per month. Probably that our beloved governement will claim it's share and that I'll finally have to pay 50 or 60$ in taxes, spending one hour to find where to put that money on my next tax return.
"Better than nothing" you may say. "Right", I may add. It's just the fact that for the last few months, I've had about 10 000 pages viewed each month. I know that many many many many websites do better but it's nonetheless a very high number for an ordinary guy without the Midas Touch.
What I want to say is that with all these visitors, I've only made 112$. Do you realize what it takes to really make money with a website?
That fucking Google may very well be full of money. They take your dollars when you want to do some publicity and they give you cents when you publish publicity.
