The Media Guru

Today, when the postman came in, on top of my Newsweek, I saw a peculiar-looking envelope addressed to me from Sweden. (Sweden?!?)
On closer inspection, I saw that my address had a postal (or Zip) code: 123AB123 Since Mauritius doesn’t have any type of postal code, this was what I provided when I signed up for Google AdSense… So finally, my Google AdSense cheque has arrived!!

$115.53 = Rs. 3200
At last my efforts have paid off. The original purpose behind which I had opened this blog has been fulfilled. I joined AdSense on May 14, 2007 & I got my first AdSense cheque 8 months later.
For this amount, the number of impressions was around 24,000 & the number of clicks around 700… an average of $0.16 per click (which isn’t good at all!) The most I got in a single day was $6.48 with my 2nd (dormant extinct) niche blog (used for click exchanges).
Anyway, what matters is the cheque (or check) & I’m $60 away from the next one…

What next? Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time to become a “pro-Blogger” & set up AdSense money-making blogs… so I’ll keep to this blog itself.

I made a request to ad-sense too.. Too bad my application got rejected. It says "Address incomplete" or something like that. I don't wanna try again! :P

That's awesome. You have been able to pass the $100 threshold.

I have got only $3 something. I am still waiting.
