    It may seem silly to some but I put up google ads about a week ago and made 95 cents. My site doesn't sell anything so I put the ads on one page just to see and yipee. While it is no $$ to speak of it tickled me just to know it can work. Time to get back to work on the site.

    Careful - this getting paid for what you do can be addictive!

    Congratulations, it's a great feeling when the money starts to arrive, real confirmation that this thing works and you can do it.

    What other business would get people excited about 95 cents?

    Well done. When you start earning the money, it does become addictive

    Good Going!!!

    My first affiliate commission was $2.20.

    I don't think that I've ever had a job or business that's this much fun. Love checking stats.

    "It may seem silly to some"

    Not silly at all. I remember the same thing, first seeing something, anything show in my account and thinking "wow it works". Then you get your first check and it can become quite addictive

    if your pages are pretty well indexed by google, their search box is an aid to navigation your visitors can use, also. might more than round out the dollar, too.

    thanks
    Thanks for all of your nice comments.

    Just an updtate - I put up some more google ads on the site I mentioned and did the same for my second site. I am now making about $80 a month w/ google and have made 3 affiliate sales for another $67. Wooo hooo. But my conversions really suck in general.

    My second site is www.123-go-baby.com I have asked for a review if you make it down to the review section of the forum.

    Thanks again - I'm going to keep plugging so that next time I add to this thread the $$ will be $1000 a month.

    Herb - I just saw your comment today - I've been thinking about trying that. Thanks

    >excited about 95 cents?

    I have a friend who made 12 cents his first day testing a new business idea and was EXCITED about it so he went on and ended with his best day being $11,000+. He keeps working to break that record and is up to 600+ sites so far.

    I remember many years ago I was having lunch with a friend, and she couldn't believe how excited I was about the fact that I was making a few nickels every day.

    She thought I was nuts.

    Maybe I was, but I've improved a bit from those nickels.
