My Last Google AdSense Check

Posted by | March 2, 2010 | General | 11 Comments

Ok maybe not my absolute last, but definitely one of the last for this amount.

I’ve grown disenchanted with AdSense in recent times, and I think Google AdSense is a dying trend thanks in a big part to Google themselves. Google is now a billion dollar publicly listed corporation more interested in going after the big fish. They don’t need, or want, someone like me. Perhaps this feeling was in part to the way they brutally banned my AdWords account with no valid reason or explanation.

I’ve already sold off most of my AdSense sites and blogs, as a final “cash-out” strategy and the price was pretty good. You can earn about 10 to 15 times a site’s monthly AdSense income, which shows that a lot of people out there still want to hold on to Google AdSense for two simple reasons:

  • It is truly the most hands-free “residual income” method of making money online, even today
  • It’s still one of the easiest to master for newbies trying to make a buck or two online

For me though, since I’ve decided on my direction for 2010, AdSense seems to be a bad fit. At my stage right now I know that whatever effort I can put into building an AdSense site I can apply to creating software or information products that will generate a much better income, with much better satisfaction.

Of course AdSense will still be used on test concept sites etc, but for the most part, I’m done with AdSense.

    dont believe to google anymore … but adsense still love me he he

  • I don’t quite understand you saying this check is one of your last, but I do understand Google Adsense is dying a slow death, due to over exposure and saturation. It gives a good indicator of the economy though. I think the world economy is gonna be headed south some time this year.

    Hey

    Sharing somewhat the same views with you. Adsense is not the best choice anymore.

    You will work for years for adsense and one fine day you could be ban without any explanation. No other company or job provider in the world will not remove their workers without any prior intimation or explanation.

    Google you sucks!
