We didn't get one last year. :(

Any chance this year will be different?

I guess only good-earning guys get such gifts? Btw anyone who received a gift can tell us the revenue he was making during that period..

I am hoping to receive my first gift this year :D Hopefully..

Forget the present- I'd be happy with the earnings of previous years...

We broke 6-figures with Adsense last year. Didn't get a gift (other than all that money... ;-)

Wasn't there a spoof gift last year by someone?

I haven't got a gift from Google AdSense in a few years and I do OK with them. My monthly payments are gift enough for me ;-)

December 2008, I wished the CTR of 2007

I wrote December 2008 the thread, can CTR get anything worse.

This December, even the CTR of December 2008 would be great as a christmas gift.

I'd rather they just give us a ca$h bonu$ instead of wasting money on some branded junk.

Yeah, but it took me years to finally earn enough money for a gift and then last year no one got one due to the economy.

I don't care what the gift is; I look at it as a trophy for years of hard work.

I'd have thought a Christmas Greeting email wouldn't hurt nor break the bank.

I know there are difficulties across cultures and religions.

It would be interesting to know what percent of the stuff that ends up in landfills is directly attributable to corporate marketing departments. I bet the figures would easily rival disposable diapers.

How about a gift that is cheap, looks good, is environment-friendly, but has absolutely no value whatsoever, and that can be easily destroyed in a pompous, visually attractive way? Then make a video clip from it while you are destroying it, and then upload the clip to Youtube. :-)

Merry Christmas, Google!

Some Google mugs for the office would be a nice surprise.

The best Xmas gift would be to FIX THE BROKEN LOGIN [webmasterworld.com]

I agree incrediBILL, it would be nice to have the automatic login fixed.

I guess Google has decided we've all been naughty this year, so it remains unfixed.

Just read about a Google cell phone hiting the market next year

Would be a great christmas present for publishers
to buy it at a special price and earlier.

All of the presents are going to high spend Adwords advertisers no doubt.

In the past the better prsents have gone to the Adword accounts, which is perfectly fine. I'd take some Google stickers, an eCard, anything.

We are still a fairly big account I would think though we are half of what we used to be. We had a card and present every year until 2007 and havent seen anything since.

I dont really mind the present part but I have hundreds of partners still send us a ecard or real card and many still send gifts. Seems strange to not even send out a ecard which literally costs nothing.

I think it's Googles inadvertent way of telling us we really don't matter much to them. We need them, more than they need us.

On the one hand, a gift is something freely given by one party to another. Publishers are entitled to be paid their earnings. Publishers are not entitled to a gift. Or are they? Are publishers entitled to a gift? Do you feel you are entitled to a gift?

On the other hand, some feel that Google does not make sufficient gestures to show their appreciation for the publishers. Is that what is at root of the discussion?

You know, as far as gestures by Google, ASA was at PubCon, looking forward to meeting with many of you. I was disappointed with the lack of turnout by members of this forum. Where were you? I even arranged a dinner out with ASA so the publishers can meet face to face with ASA who was there to meet face to face with you. Only about eight of you turned up. Opportunties don't always come knocking. Sometimes you have to go to opportunity itself. Hope to see more of you at PubCon next year.

You can't turn up to events you aren't notified about!

Hey Bill, I called your cell phone. Not my fault you weren't answering. ;)

Where were you?

Facing the realities of the European recession!

I bet it would cost me well upwards of USD 2,000.00 to attend, that's one heck of an expensive dinner even for me :-)

Hope to see more of you at PubCon next year.

Any chance it will ever be held in Reno or Tahoe? Then I'd have half a chance of being there as that's my neck of the woods.

There's a wonderful rant by Michael Keaton's character in reply to Spalding Grey's character in the movie "The Paper" that's just about the perfect response to this. A lot of us don't live where PubCon is being held and some of us will probably never attend a PubCon. We are too busy living in the real world.
