Annoyed With Google

I'm annoyed with Google and their AdSense program at the moment.

They sent me this coupon for $50 worth of free advertising. I used it to promote my blog. I was skeptical as to whether or not it would be worth it. However, since they offered it, I decided to take them up on it.

There was an increase in traffic to my site, but no increase in revenue. I thought it was set up to end once the $50 that they gave me was used up.

But I was wrong.

They continued to bill me for the increased, non-revenue producing traffic. I know this because I got my credit card statement in the mail today. The definitely charged me for it.

Anyway, I have a favor to ask.  Do you see those ads that appear below this post?

Please click one of them. It's the only way that I make any money from this blog and, at the moment, I have some catching up to do.

I have the same issues! They sent me a gift card for $100 and, because of what a friend told me about the cost of ads on facebook, I tore it up. It's $25 per click. I knew that sooner rather than later, I'd be the one coughing up the money to pay for the clicking! Uh uh, not me! I'll click an ad for ya!
