A little while ago I had my 40st birthday. And I wondered for a moment if a guy with my age should continue to make cash by putting Adsense on webpages.

Now some of you folks are "old friends" in more than one way. But in respect of the age thing: Give me your numbers please. What is the age of the Adsenser? Who thinks he or she is the youngest or perhaps the oldest Adsenser?

And Ann, I know that these numbers don't matter so much for the lucky ones who feel 20 years young regardless of their age...

If I'm over 60, does that make me a "grey hat"? :-)

Sure - and ten years later you're finally "white hat"! :-)

Heck, I've been naturally "white hat" for the last 20 years, if it weren't for those wonderful colouring products...ahem, less said the better:-)

Spikey hair doesn't suit me though!

56 here. Promptly had a heart attack after getting my 1st ups check.

Adsense isn't like it used to be but I'm sailing down the Intercoatal Waterway, Southeast USA and happily allowing Adsense to pay for slip rentals each night.

>Adsense isn't like it used to be

Sure, when you was <ehm> young, there was no SmartPricing, Referrals2.0 crap and one AdSense dollar used to buy helluva lot more than it does today.

we should all move to Florida or something :-)

The first rule for Googletopia is that you Do Not Talk about Googletopia.

The second rule: Girls over 25 can only stay if they hold a valid AdSense account or married to someone that does.

Not searching for my "cute daughter" are you?

BTW 37 years young.

EFV do you have some affiliate program running for Googletopia? I would like to book and share the commission.

48 and couldn't be happier. 20s were full of angst. 30s were full of work and "hustling." 40s have brought security and contentment. And you are never old to make money with AdSense!

I'm waiting for global warming to reach Scotland, so I can retire to a Desert Highlands.

All philosophers have that, just make it sound like deep stuff and they'll think is's pearls of wisdom, you're doing fine webwork ;-)

Scotland is good. That's where all my folks come from originally.

I will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of my 41st birthday next week. Glad to see how many people past the half way mark are doing this stuff. I had a web design business for 10 years, but the grayer I got, the more people didn't want to talk to me. You could see it in their eyes. You talk to them on the phone and set up an appointment. As soon as they see you they swallow and get this funny look on their faces. Clearly, if you're not a 20-30 something, you cannot possibly understand anything about the internet. Sheesh.

I retired from my web design business last January and am now concentrating on my own adsense sites. It's great not having to deal with clients. And I'm just about making the same income with my own sites as I did with my web design business.

Last Friday night I was aksed by a former school mate why I was still working at 55 and he was quite shocked when I answered that I enjoyed my work and had loads of ideas for future ventures.

Stating that he was completely and utterly stressed-out with his job I responded by saying that I got rid of my stress 10 years ago when, after an horrendously stressful week's travelling and business in mainland Europe, I boldly took the decision to convert all our businesses to on-line ventures.

I can tell you this, sometimes I thought it would never succeed and especially when some of our largest clients (multi million Dollar businesses) tried to resist all attempts to modernise their work practices.

However some saw the Net as the viable future and embraced it fully and now we have those laggards still busily playing catch-up after they saw just how much more efficient their competitors had become.

Would I have been able to persuade those companies the way forward was via the Net if I were not fully conversant and already significantly present? I doubt it, my trade widget experience plus my Internet skills convinced them of "my ideas for the future" were viable.

Never has working life been so unstressful and laid-back, talking of which, it must be time for a beer:-)

Wish I could convert my catering biz to an online biz, but it just doesn't work that way over here...

But I'm glad for Adsense. 90% of the earnings go into savings and investment... I wonder if I can buy a small plot of land on Googletopia to plant veggie and mebbe raise some chickens?

I could sell them to you's guys in exchange for clicks... (ahem...)

I'm undoubtedly not the youngest Adsenser, but, having read all previous posts, I nonetheless feel rather young with my 22 years of existence. Shines a new light on my status as a "junior member."

They say kids age should be added to your age. That means I am 73 years old. (Really, 32yo with 5 kids)

I'm 29 and I wish I could used AS when it was started in 2003. Nevertheless, I don't find any relationship between age and AS.
