I run adsense both on a blog and on a site. I havn't had problems with it so far. If you open a blogger account, you'll even see an invite for adsense. I would say you can safely use adsense on a blog and a site within the same adsense account. Multiple blogs shouldn't be a problem either. But the adsense click thru rate is horrible on my blog,so I wouldn't expect to much of it.

So I'm not alone on getting low click through on my blog. I think it's because blogs are just too leaky.

I thnk I'm getting pretty good CTR on my blog.
My CPM varies widely though.
Now if I could just get more traffic...

Compared to my normal sites, adsense on my blogs have a very low CTR as well...
ownerrim, you can have more than one blog (all of them can have adsense from the same account).
Just include the adsense code in the part of your "template" code where you want it to show up...

I think it depends on the topic of your blog. If you have a highly focused topic, strategically placed ads and good traffic levels Adsense can work very very (very) well on blogs.

Definitely. Some blogs make $$$.

The blogs that make big bucks have a massive number of visitors everyday. I am curious if their CTR is that high though. I would think a lot of people follow links to more blogs and other stuff even with the big boys. But then they don't need a high CTR to do well.
Alas, my little niche topic blog will never attract the masses. I'll just have to look elsewhere for profits.

Well, you have to remember that a "blog" for some people is nothing more than a really simple way to publish. You might decide to do, say, a product review website with Adsense ads for income and just run the whole thing on Blogger (or Journalspace, MT, or whatever) just because publishing that way is so much simpler than figuring out how to do it all yourself.

My personal experience with AS in Blogger is that a panel can be inserted with the template so that it will appear in a side menu for example. Hoever I've had no success getting a AS panel to appear in a blog post. I've already contacted ASSupport on this and they said it wasn't currently possible to post AS panels in the individual blog postings. That was a couple weeks ago. I ahven't made the attempt to try again. Is anybody having success with that?

Well, does it dilute the original adsense income what we get from the site if we come with the blog and use the same adsense account?

here's a suggestion - what if instead of having 1 niche topic blog you had 25...or more?
I'm not sure how much your blog is earning - but lets just say its $5 a day and that it takes you 15 minutes a day to update. What if you started another 24 blogs that each took 15 minutes of your time each day for a total of 6 hours updating per day.
If they all brought in $5 daily you'd be making $150 a day. Of course thats 7 days per week totaling at $1050 per week.
Of course the chances are that if you started 25 blogs that at least one of them (at least) would take off and that you might find your average daily earnings higher than that.
Also if you had a little patience you'd find over time as you add entries every day you'd see your earnings grow.
ie if you add two new pages on each of those blogs each day you'd be adding 18250 pages of content every year. Not a bad year's work.
You see - I've heard a number of people say that blogs can't and won't make money - but I beg to differ - if you're willing to put in some hard work, be a little creative and have a little patience I think they can do pretty well. Just a theory - interested in what others think.

the problem in your post is that you start out with a 5$ earning per blog per day. I'm way, and I mean way of 5$ a day with my blog. I would be happy to make 1$ a day with my blog.
Blogging for AS money is a lot of work. A nice site earns you much much more.

you're right - it takes time to get to $5 a day - but I find with a little time and patience its not that hard once you build up your domain's ranking (ie don't use the free hosting option with Blogger etc).

Google Adsense will disable accounts for the following possible reasons.

cybersquatting or domain parking, domain registration sites, sites that employ cloaking or framing, and sites that contain excessive keywords or hidden content. As a result, we have disabled ad-serving to this URL."
