Just logged in to see how it's doing. 9 views and 1 click in 6 days. This click gives me 2c.

If I get 2 cents in 6 days, then I get 1 cent in 3. Multiply the minimum payment of 5000c ($50) by 3 and divide the total by 365 means that it will take me 41+ years to make minimum payment! I'll be way over retirement age by then.

Actually I'm thinking about trying it since i have a forum and over 10000 page impressions and i keep seeing "no ads"

So the alternate ads is not for normal sites with rich content, but it can be useful on forums.

To me, its a refreshing change from the "I made gazillion bucks this month. Am I clever or what?" threads

When alternate ads display isn't that simple as any series of words on a page that set off the AdSense blocking mechanism you're stuck in PSA hell for reasons unknown.

You can hack up a page until ads display again and figure out more or less what blocked the ads, but it's a real pain when the words that triggered it aren't terribly obvious.

it will take me 41+ years to make minimum payment!

My 40hr test:
Approx 80k page views
88 AltURL impressions - 0 clicks

If I could manage to get a 1% CTR, and for examples's sake, avg it up to $0.05/click, it'd take me 90 million page impressions (10 months) to make that $50.

I'm looking at the terms & it still says $50... where'd you see that?

What's the rate of 'no ads'?

If you do that math, even if 50% of your ads could be fullfilled by AtlURL, and assuming a 1% CTR @ $0.05/click... 10,000 pages would equate to $2.50 of AtlURL income.
Are you serving 10,000 pages per day or month? If it's 10,000 pages per month, you're still looking at 20 months to reach that min payment.

=======
I'm convinced that that the number of folks who will ever see a dime is extremely small.

If you miraculously did fit into a category that would actually generate some AltURL income, you'd probably be better off running affiliate programs targetted towards your site's theme/audience.
