Google WebSearch With AdSense

    Looks like Google is offering a customized web search function now. Which allows you to change the look/feel of the results to match your site as well as serve up AdSense with those results:

    Yes it looks good.

    I just hope it's managed properly.

    Either way, here comes the revenue.
    I'm learning to love freestyle IPO's :)

    I think you would need to get a LOT of searches per day to really make any sort of real income on it. digitalpoint.com gets just under 100,000 unique visitors per day, which yields about 150 searches per day (not including forum searches of course).

    Shawn, you're moving up in the world no ?

    First 2000 Uniques. (forums)
    Next 50,000 Uniques. (dp)
    Now 100,000 Uniques. (dp)

    All in four to five weeks !

    What's your big secret ? :p

    On a slightly less pokey note, there are some sites where searching is a strong point - ie sites where services are cross-referenced with regions etc. Quicker to search than to navigate.. I must say, I haven't looked all that closely at the fine print though. I don't know what the pay/conversion ratios would be yet.

    :)

    i don't expect the search possibility to add much revenue to me.
    you need a lot of traffic.. (and i men A LOT) to get revenue from searches

    When you have content on a site that is interesting, always up to date and is displayed in an organised way the popularity of that site will always go up which is why digital point will keeping getting more visitors.

    I was already using the API to do the same thing. Compare my implenatation of the Google PHP API to my implementation their Google AdSense Search.

    How usefull is the API that I supply?

    You're not wrong even by Alexa standards !

    So how come ? I mean, what's your strength ? Far as I can tell, DP is just another business site with the usual array of proprietary products. Indeed, the forum is contributing, but is it the free tools ?

    You've really got my curiosity piqued here - that's some serious throughput !

    :cool:

    Personally, I reckon it's a combination of the tools and forums.

    I first discovered DP through the keyword tracker tool. While using the keyword tracker I saw other usefull information which happened to be the forums.

    Keyword Tracker tool landed me here, caused me to create my own forum and I have been here since. Cannot get enough of the guys here. I have to wonder when other mods will be added. We will start to see quite a few 'winners' joining as well, those winners that will need to be removed. (Hopefully, I dont fall in that category)

    I first found this site when I did a search for Google API Forum. I signed up, made a post about my implementation of my Google PHP API script and left never to return on purpose. Numerous different searches however kept on bringing me back to DigitalPoint. I paid more attention to the forums, noticed all the "Neatness" and have been visiting the site several times daily.

    ...and lived happily ever after...

    I like this new addition.
    Even if it does not add a lot to revenue, every little bit helps...

    Time will tell how this works out.

    Winners are those who always try to tear down a great forum or ruin a board. They are confrontational people who always think they are right. Go to any forum and you will find them. They whine and complain and offer no good to any conversation or thread. They are the 'SPAM' of the poster world.
