Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Just kidding, I use an electric razor, and it showed up :)
Tonight, the knock at the door came and it was the Fedex Santa once again bringing goodies to all the good boys and girls that shoved AdSense in their visitors faces all year long.
Everyone knows I've been naughty, but this gift sure is nice!
The gift specs are as follows:
* 3.6 inch TFT digital photo frame
* 960 x 240 TFT screen, 16 mega-color
* Picture: JPG format
* Audio: MP3, WMA, WAV and records WAV itself
* Video: ASF only
* Media: Internal memory and SD card, comes with sample slideshow in memory
* USB 1.1 interface
* Power: 4 AA batteries or USB 5V or AC/DC power adapter
All I can say, in my best Borat accent, is...
"IT'S VERY NIIIIIICE! I LIKE! HIGH 5!"
Thank you Google, well done ;)
Happy Holidays to everyone at Google and especially AdSense Advisor, Matt Cutts, Adam Lasnik, Vanessa Fox, Brian White, Phoebe Ho, or as Santa would call her, Phoebe HO! HO! HO! and if I missed anyone I'm sorry, you'll just have to send me hate mail.
Oh yes, Happy Thanksgiving to all you turkeys too ;)

I've gotten nothing from G at all. Nothing. Well, nothing but my EFT.
Yesterday I got an eCard from Yahoo Publisher. I've given them just a very a few impressions in the past, and at that time I set up a simple flag to A/B AdSense and Yahoo. Have I mentioned that Yahoo keeps calling me asking to help me switch my main site to their ads? Not yet.
I think I'll give Yahoo a go on a photo gallery, about 500,000 pageviews a year. I haven't had any ads on there yet.
Merry Christmas, Google.
I have had an account for approximately 3 years, howeever, I never really did much with it until April of this year. Been earning a couple of thousand dollars per month, not sure if that qualifies as it seems some of those who earn more than me have not received one either.
I wonder if it is completely random?
Either way, I'm not whining, it would be nice to get the Google Gift, however, a gift is just that, a gift. If I do not get one, I have no right to complain, as it is not a right to get a gift.
I'm in Ontario, Canada, and last year the gift came after Christmas, but I don't think it was this late. I'm very disappointed.
I've never received a card or a gift -- but my first year in the program they sent me a little notepad sized spiral bound "booklet" (for lack of a better word) with "8 Tips How to Optimize AdSense".
I should have framed it.
Are there any Canadians reading who could confirm that they received their parcel via FedEx? Or did it come through Canada Post or another delivery service? And was that before or after Christmas?
I'm going to try and trace it, but it would help if I knew who to question first.
Also can anyone confirm what I read earlier in the thread - that the parcel is marked "Do Not Return"? I ask because my contact at Google said he believed they had no tracking information on these parcels; however, if it is returned, he will make sure it is shipped out to me again.
Any advice would be appreciated.
