Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I got a couple at 3 cents per click for what would have been 5 cent ads.
So I'm guessing our cut is 60%
Can anyone confirm or deny from their data?
GoogleGirl: Hey, GB, wanna have some fun?
GoogleBoy: Sure, GG, what'd you have in mind?
GoogleGirl: Let's mess with the minds of those WW geeks! Whatdya say?
GoogleBoy: Cool! We've already tweaked some of their toolbars so they give conflicting or changing numbers. And heh heh, remember the time when we put Related Ads in their AdSense boxes? JUST KIDDING... hee hee! Wow, that was a hoot... sure got them riled up for a bit!
GoogleGirl: Well, I have a new idea! I know we've been running with a straight percentage cut for a while with the AdSense ads, but I think it'd be entertaining to, well, mix it up a bit!
GoogleBoy: Ah, I think I know what you're getting at...
GoogleGirl: Yes! Maybe 73% for those folks who opened their account on a day starting with 'T', and 57% for others...
GoogleBoy: No, no, that's too easy. Someone'd crack that sooner or later. I think we ought to add a randomizer in there somewhere!
GoogleGirl: Oh! You mean like we do for the SERPS, so WW regulars each see their own site ranked differently, depending on the state of the moon?
GoogleBoy: Yeah, kind of like that! So let's randomize the revenue cut, seeding the algorithm with the hour of the day, the publisher's first name, and the frequency with which they check their AdSense stats!
GoogleGirl: Oooo... I like the way you think, GB! Say, can we add some extra-fun fluctuations into the site of... oh, what's his name... you know, the guy who wears the metal hat to protect against Google Rays?
GoogleBoy: Um, GG, I don't think he's running AdSense ads.
GoogleGirl: Darn. Well, anyway, I'll get started on the randomizer, and you check WW for some of those funny and confused posts. Man, GB, I love that site, don't you? Hey, do you think we should boost WW's page rank so they get some more members?
GoogleBoy: Oh yeah... more people to toy with! Go for it!
GoogleGirl: You got it! Okay, ttfn. Oh, and don't forget to switch GoogleGuy's photo on WW. Make it show Gary Coleman for all the WW's in California maybe.
GoogleBoy: I'm there! Chat tomorrow...
