So, anyone want to report back on the interviews?

We all signed NDAs.

Suffice to say, it was interesting and informative. The staff were friendly, helpful, and listened to all criticisms and comments.

Peculiar how Google prohibit publishers from disclosing any information regarding CTR, CPM and the like. I can see how it (possibly) works to their benefit, publishers (possibly) run the adverts for a trial period, (possibly) discover it's a waste of time and terminate but not before Google have made a few dollars, multiplied by the (let's guess at 100,000) publishers worldwide doing the same which equates to a lot of money earned by Google, and of course none of that being paid out, because unless a publisher "earns" $100 Google doesn't pay....

Not that I am suggesting any inpropriety on Google's part, I am sure they are very upstanding, but a less scrupulous business could exploit their position, in this way.

Matt, you're wrong, wrong and wrong ;)

Google doesn't have 100,000 publishers, it's more like about 22,000 (based on cheque number sequences discussed here in the past). Then, Google doesn't earn a lot of money if you look at it in percentage terms. Publishers get a bigger cut than Google does. Lastly, it's not the case that Google doesn't pay sub $100. They'll pay you ... but they'll pay you later and not when I get my big, regular, juicy, much-awaited, profitable, on-time monthly cheque. :)

I'll live with that.

What I'm upset about is that they didn't invite me for an interview :(

Yeah - I must confess I'd have quite liked an invite too, since I'm doing a pretty respectable level of turnover.

I wonder if they picked the biggest publishers, or a representative sample across the board. Anyone guess?

Never mind - as long as they don't forget me when it comes to sending the cheques....
