Regular visitors may have noticed the addition of "Ads by Goooooogle" to the side bar about a week ago. I decided to add those on a whim when I clicked a referral button for Google's AdSense at another site.
My motive wasn't to see how much money I could make - though I'll be happy to rake it in, if it turns out there's any to be made. Instead, I'm running an experiment to see what sense AdSense makes of this nonsense.
And it's been fairly amusing in a dry sort of way: when Your pet's blog was one of the most recent entries, the ads were about dogs, cats and pet paraphernalia. When the Redneck one-liners was near the top, there was an ad for "Redneck Singles." (For those girls with names on the backs of their belts, I suppose.)
Recently the ads have been for airline jobs and flight attendant-related things - presumably making sense of the Solidarity post. I have to admit that AdSense is doing as well as could be expected.
That's the story. I'm not sure how long they'll stay up. If the pace doesn't pick up from its current 62-cents-per-week I'll probably use the space for something more interesting. In the meanwhile, though, feel free to click through if anything piques your interest. I promise not to spend it all in one place.

Well, I haven't been clicking the links, but will start. Heaven knows maybe it'll bumb you to a buck a week. :-)
