|$0,03 for 3000 impressions?|
ppi, pay per impression
Does google pay per impression or just per click?
I'll be opening a site in a few weeks. But before I have a test blog, so i can learn how to use adsense and how this stuff works.
In 3 days I've had around 3000 impressions. And my google adsense balance is $0,03
Is this normal? I now some keywords pay better than others. But still even for the lowest paying keywords, it seems to little money to me :S
By the way, with 3 google adsense blocks, 3000 visits and not a single click!

For the most part, AdSense pays by the click, but advertisers can also buy "site-targeted CPM ads" which are priced per 1,000 impressions. You probably aren't seeing many (if any) of those, though.

It isn't much money, but whether it's normal depends on your topic and audience.

It could just be that your audience isn't interested in clicking on ads, or that--because of your topic--Google isn't serving the kinds of ads that invite clicks. In any case, loading up your pages with ad units may be counterproductive if those multiple ad units discourage users from coming back and make other Webmasters skeptical about linking to your site.
I think you should forget about joining Adsense as suggested by europeforvisitors (indirectly) in another thread. :D
Not worth joining. Better spend your precious time to do some other stuffs that could make more money. :)
Then what should I join? I really dont care much about my blog and these 3000 impressions, its just a test issue so I can cash in the money produced by my "Main" site, whose adsense account will be signed UP as a referal from my blog :) (so I can get the $250 they give you).
What other plans are better than adsense?
I will be opening a quite interesting site, it will be focused to an adult audience (not porn), with a main personal classifieds section and also some forums and rating pictures section.
What could be the best advertising plan for this?
astur, I think you are begging to get banned from AdSense. How are you going to get the $250 referral from Google when you use the same AdSense account? Even if you will have a separate business account for the Web site, I wouldn't be surprised if Google discovered that you "referred" yourself.
Furthermore, I wouldn't put AdSense on anything even remotely "Adult-oriented" - unless you watch it closely so that it doesn't degrade into something closer to porn than you intended. Read the TOS, and then ask Google to look at your Web site before you put AdSense on it.
With a different account and different name (I haven't registered anything with my real name, I use other identities).
Even from a different IP, and of course with different address.
Anyway, I don't get to know where do these 3 cents come from if no one has clicked my ads, and it seems that Pay Per Impression ads arent shown in my test blog.
I forgot to say, it will be something just erotic, but not porn, I mean, the typical man seek woman, man seek man site, where users can upload their pictures.
Well, I agree with you that google might not like this kind of content.
But within a same website with different sections where some sections will be more erotic than others, can I use adsense in a part of the site with no erotic content while in the other part of the site there will be some more adult-oriented content? Do they classify the site as a whole or do they differ between sections?
Start your site at first and later think about adsense.
Forget about Adsense, with the route you're going you'll end up terminated anyway.
The site is already started, well, indeed is almost finished, I'm just making sure there are no bugs, and testing all the options.
It should be launched by next week.
They classify the site as a whole.
