    Hi this is an interesting question as ppl have different family backgrounds. How does your family members respond to your online earnings? I am quite fearful and tend to avoid discussing adsense to family members. It is good to prevent invalid clicks. How about u?

    Lol.

    Friends - my Adsense is used to buy shares, which I think not many other uni students can (or want to) do.

    Family - They treat it like any other job, even though I don't spend a lot of time on it, I'm mostly wasting time on the computer or checking traffic and earnings stats :p.

    Haha, good question.

    My father asked me the other day why I get a new car every time he sees me. I tell him because I make a better income online than I do offline, he asks me what I'm doing, I try to explain and he doesnt understand, I summarize & say, "Let's just say I put corporate advertising dollars in my pocket."

    He then says, "boy, don't tell me nothin more, you doin somethin illegal, I don't wanna know"

    LOL he just doesn't get it, its the same thing every time I see him. He thinks I am selling crack or something, due to my history he really has a valid reason too :D

    Oh, this is with affiliate programs, not adsense

    Oh, family wasn't very 'techie' so they don't ask much about adsense. So long as it's bringing in money, adsense sounds good news to them :D

    Haha, why don't you just tell your parents your running advertising on websites instead of the TV, and that you made these websites.

    All people have different backgrounds. Some think we're wasting time online and it's hard to make money online. While others have their monthly earnings in six figures.

    So, it depends on the type of person, you're talking to.
