    and I can guarantee it wasn't worth the money the idiot advertiser paid for it.

    Highest single adsense click I have had, that I noticed yet though.


    edit: $1,926.34 eCPM lol.

    Wish I knew what advertiser it was.

    maybe I should be doing some arbitrage lol. Haven't really touched the site since I got it years ago and it gets a few random hits here and there.

    Usually clicks are .50 - $1.50 though.

    lol thanks :o

    not really a niche I have done anything in...just a crappy article type site I bought years ago that I haven't touched that gets some light random traffic. But most of the content is based on "college" stuff.

    No, it's pretty delayed unfortunately. I don't have any kind of tracking at all on it either.

    Today I got two clicks that came out to $6.90 so I guess those are not too bad either...either it is one big advertisers with messed up bids or maybe its getting close to the time people apply for grants and such maybe? Or schools recruiting (university of phoneix) maybe?

    I'm guessing it isn't so much the actual college niche but more on the grants/loans that is where the money is. Could be completely wrong though as I haven't really done much at all in the niche.

    I wish I knew more about Adsense. I'm a total retard when it comes to that. Some friends and I have been writing a Boston sports based blog for fun but grand total in like 3 years we've only made $20 LOL

    Really you don't have to know anything about adsense for it to work. You just need to make sure you have the ads on there where people will likely click and then get traffic. Sure you can fine-tune it and such but it basically just comes down to getting content indexed (hopefully something with higher paying keywords) and getting traffic.

    Wish I knew more about this. I'll be unemployed with a few computers sitting around. I've got to figure out a way to make some extra $$$ that wont jeopardize my unemployment $$$. I've got some researching to do.

    If you make a single dollar from AdSense, you are at risk of losing unemployment. There was a big fiasco about some woman from New York I believe losing her unemployment because of a blog she monetized. It's a sort of all-in-or-nothing affair.

    Congrats on the click though Jester; highest I've ever had was around $4. Then again I don't own many sites that can utilize advertising revenue.

    That is really good, you should start putting more work into the site again if it is doing that lol..I do notice that the $ went back down to normal, oh well.

    isn't all that impressive? I wouldn't even give it that much credit... but then again, we have absolutely no idea what he is promoting, traffic source... etc etc. But I do know I would be trying to improve that!


    Edit- One column is Sold Impressions... I am going to assume he is selling ad's on a site. But then again... still totally depends on the site niche.
