I posted this a few days ago, but got no response. I find it hard to believe that there are no bloggers with AdSense out there, so if at first I didn't succeed, I'll try again:

I am thinking of starting a blog and am interested in anyone who has any experience using Blogger and AdSense.I understand that a new AdSense interface now exists for bloggers on the Google Blogger/BlogSpot network - making it easy for bloggers to sign up.

Does anyone have any experience with blogs and Adsense? If so, can you use your existing AdSense account? What kind of success are you having? Obviously it is dependent on many of the usual variables, but I am curious about your stories and/or hints. Thanks!

My best paying adsense site is a blog. But it's a WP blog, not blogger.

I've got two Blogger blogs that get good traffic and make me good money every month. It's really just a matter of 1) topic 2) CTR 3) traffic.

i've got only one site at the moment (a WP powered blog), but i'm thinking of expanding and growing a little network of sites sometime in the future. at the moment though, i've got my hands full writing up original content for the single site.

Blech, I hate Blogger - I'd never use it for a serious topic. I fool around on it, but use WordPress for anything important.

I also used Nucleus once and was pretty satisfied with that.

Does anyone have any experience with blogs and Adsense?

Yes, since 2001. I started out using MovableType, tried B2Evolution, Blogger/Blogspot, WordPress and have recently returned to MovableType since the latest version seems to have conquered comment and trackback spam. The only blog I ever put AdSense on was the one at Blogspot.

If so, can you use your existing AdSense account?

Absolutely. I had my AdSense account prior to Blogger allowing AdSense ads and simply added it into the template.

What kind of success are you having?

Never ever got as much as one click on that blogspot blog. Some advertiser tried to site target it with an ad that would never in a thousand years be suitable for my content - had to filter out that dumbo.

I run two ExpressionEngine blogs and two WP blogs. All four have adsense, and the total for me for those on Adsense per day is around $25. The two EE blogs are updated daily; the other two every two weeks or so.

I have a hobby blog on blogspot in addition to my site, the blog was making me 1-5 dollars daily, I was feeling a pressure due to the adds to develop blog contnet but felt it was distracting me from my hobby and affecting my web site, so I pulled off the ads from the blog and don't regret it, so to answer your question, yes, there is money there, the trick is in the topic and total blending, but its not for everyone.

Lots of bloggers are successful with AdSense, so I absolutely recommend trying it out.

If you do, one AdSense optimization tip that many bloggers find useful is using page section targeting ([google.com ]) to help our crawlers serve relevant ads.

Since the topics on blogs tend to change frequently and often are not targeted, you can use section targeting to help our crawlers determine what your page is about.

BTW, I wouldn't try implementing this unless you are pretty comfortable editing HTML.
