    Agreed on the grey areas. There might be an argument to be made about some type of categorization. Directories go to the extreme; maybe Google should have a "sort" function next to or below the search box that allows for "commercial" sites, "location", etc. Don't know for sure. I can say for sure that Overture has really gone downhill, much the spam-way of Looksmart since Yahoo took over. I've never received so many click-throughs from third and fourth tier sites from Russia and beyond. Today's edition of the Dallas Morning News has an interesting article about MSN's new search engine "featuring localized results..." Interesting to see how this 800 lb gorrilla matches up to Google.

    BTW mopacfan, is this your site?

    No, this is Shawn's site. One of them anyway. My site is in my signature (below).

    I was not aware that overture had spoiled so quickly. Never using overture, and hating yahoo, I was unaware.

    So far so good. Although, I am seriously confused about how these clicks are paid. the first day, I made $30. on ONE click. The next day I made $12.00 on 43 clicks. <--go figure.

    So you have the sense to make the pages but can't figure out how they pay?

    Dozens of variables play into what each click will pay... Which ad the visitors click on, which words adsense picks to show the ad for.

    Say you have a Baseball site...

    Pretend the term "baseball bat" pays $0.48/click for the top spot and "louisville slugger baseball bat" pays $3.12... These ads can rotate at any given time, and the same sites are likely using both terms. When they see that "louisville slugger baseball bat" isn't converting, they stop that campaign, and keep the "baseball bat" ad running. Now, since your page still contains " baseball bat" you will serve the cheaper ads- giving the advertiser the same traffic for 6x less money.

    More variables are:

    - advertiser may drop *just* your site for not converting
    - advertiser may drop *all* sites because the ROI wasn't high enough.
    - adsense picks up the cheaper term that day and shows those ads more often instead.
    - Location A for a specific term costs $XX.XX while location B is only worth $0.XX


    ... There are more, obviously, but I think thats a pretty good start.

    Can you get me a job?

    I have great talent to empty trash cans, dust and sweep floors. But not always in that order... :confused:

    Any truth to the theory that PR of the site hosting the ads has an effect on the rate at which the ads are paid?

    Thanks,

    Digital,

    Wondering what your linking strategy is.

    e.g. do you have a pattern to cross-link?

    Also, do all the sites link to your monsterlawsuites site? I was wondering how peeps found your adsense ads.
