What funds this blog?

September 3, 2012 under Practical

UPDATE:  The only funding now comes from the SHOP section.  But here’s the ancient info anyway when I tried to keep this non-commercial.

…. long long time ago before Google changed it’s mind

My friends, it’s just a reminder that the only major source of funding for this blog is the advertisement from Google.  I get people asking me all the time something like “Can you really make money from this?”.

Let’s just say, not much money at all when you consider the work put in.  However, it does help to cover some costs and the time it takes to research and write.

Of course, main thing is traffic.  More hits means more earnings from the advertisement.  At the moment I’d say that 50% of my traffic comes from organic Google search and the other 50% comes from forums.  After I’ve done some SEO tricks, my organic traffic doubled.

Please be kind to the sponsor ads and see what they have to offer.  If you are part of some online communities that may be interested in the topics I write about, please feel free to share the link.
