    Yep, it was in an article in Money Magazine for August. Screenshots courtesy of Kevin here on OT

    I make a little through donations... but nothing to write home about. It's enough to cover the cost of hosting and stuff.

    I haven't had anyone offer to buy it yet :o

    I just put a post up on the blog trying to find someone to help develop the site though. I have so many other projects that I just can't dedicate enough time to Clearcheckbook. Hopefully I can get someone who doesn't mind working for free :hsd:

    Well, Google ads won't run on the site because it's secured with SSL.

    As far as having other people pay me to display banner ads, that's an idea, but i'd probably end up being fairly picky about what kinds of ads are displayed.

    For the few months before the article I was averaging between 700-900 visits per day (17,000 - 20,000 pageviews)

    Post article I'm getting around 1,000-1,200 visits per day (20,000 - 25,000 pageviews)

    Not bad for a three sentence review in a magazine
