Christmas Gift from Google

Even though I’m on Google’s naughty list, they were still nice enough to send me a Christmas gift. I guess they realized that no matter how evil I am, I still make them a lot of money and I’m sure they would hate to see that business go to Yahoo.

You can see what Google sent me in the video below. I have to admit, this year’s present is much better than last year’s gift. I don’t even know where that thing is anymore.

Did Google send you a Christmas gift?

    Yep, got that from Google too. I still liked Yahoo’s present better this year!

    1. Gary R. Hess says:

      Yahoo gave a present? 😯

      What was it?

      1. It’s a cool keyboard. I wonder who would they hire to come up with all these Christmas ideas?

    2. Turk Hit Box says:

      My girlfriend is actually looking for a business card holder. I would love to have that as a present πŸ™‚

    3. DeboHobo says:

      I would like to win the Google Business Card holder. Please pick me to win! πŸ‘Ώ

    4. Steve Robbo says:

      I’m up for it, if you can send to the UK.

      Thanks John.

  2. Tom says:

    What are the earning’s required for a gift from google? Anyone care to give an estimate?

    1. Zac Johnson says:

      Not too much, I got the gift this year and earned/spent mid range 5 figures with Adsense/Adwords.

      1. Etienne Teo says:

        I got no gift, i guess sending the item to me is expensive after all.

        1. Well if you are making money to them they will most likely want to send you a gift.

    2. JoeTech.com says:

      I didn’t get anything this year after pulling in $4,000 with Adsense, but last year, I got the digital photo frame after pulling in $15,000+, so I imagine the minimum is between $4,000 and $15,000.

  3. ralph dagza says:

    I want it please!!!! thanks!

  4. ralph dagza says:

    I want it please!!! thank you John

  5. haha nice nice nice shoemoney shirt! πŸ™‚

    1. Zac Johnson says:

      when’s the moneyreign shirt going to get some airtime? πŸ˜‰

  6. That’s a pretty sweet gift. The box looked so cheap at first, that I thought all they sent you was a bunch of corrugated cardboard glued together. Awesome.

  7. Jack says:

    Can always use more crap for my wallet.

  8. Matthew says:

    Interesting video… All I want from google is my check soon! πŸ™‚

  9. Google sort of sent me a Christmas gift. My Adsense check and CJ check both arrived today. That’s the first time ever on the same day. It’s not at your level John, but they were for over $2,000 combined.

    1. Pam Hoffman says:

      Heck, I’d take that!

      Oh, count me in on the giveaway John!

      Google is still holding my money – I have yet to reach their initial threshold to cut a check (well, paypal me).

      Talk about having your cake and eating it too!

  13. Gregg Gordon says:

    Count me in on the draw πŸ™‚

  14. Like to have it as well. Happy Holidays!

  15. mahdi yusuf says:

    Thanks John.

  27. KC says:

    Cool gift! Enter me in the draw please!

  28. Haha. I like how you say “just bite this piece off put it on my wallet… and throw this big thing away” when talking about the card. Throw away a gift???

    But yeah, I like how they have a hidden flash drive in that card. If I had that, I would keep the whole thing. πŸ˜›

  29. Spencer says:

    Wee! Count me in on the Google flash drive!

  30. Anthony says:

    I wouldn’t mind having that! Count me in. 😈

  31. George Burke says:

    I am really kind of jealous. I use google.com and they didn’t send me a christmas present. Then again, I only started two months ago and I have only made $12 to date. I am so poor. I am going to rename my site to destituteblogger.com. It is a good thing that I still have my job. I wouldn’t be able to eat until seven months later. It is going to take me forever to reach $100. Well I am starting with clickbank and commission junction. Maybe times will get better. Movie Blog I also just learned this link thing. Hooray for me. Sorry, John now I’m playing at least this post is pretty far down the list. I think I am going to be comment thrity five.

  32. Oh you lucky Chow.
    Google never sends me presents… Count me in on the “lottery”

  33. Jamie Harrop says:

    Another competition?! Nice! πŸ˜€ Count me in. Thanks John!

  34. wow, that is really cool. My goal is to be on their gift list for next christmas!!!
    :mrgreen:

  35. Paul says:

    Hi John, seasons greetings from the UK!

  36. Shaun Carter says:

    I’ll jump in the contest for this… nice shoemoney shirt John!

  37. George Burke says:

    Holy @$%#, how did you do that christmas present thing. Where it link to the macaroni grill John, write your next post on how you did that please. and my link actually works. Two amazing feats. John I hope I don’t seem like an idiot but I am impressed. 😯

  38. carl says:

    I am in.

    Did I win?

  39. Jacob says:

    Looks like a much better gift than last year. I wouldn’t mind winning it. πŸ˜›

  40. FKI says:

    Hmm.. How much do you need to make to “qualify”? I mean I’m a 5-figure Google earner.. do you need to be 6-figures?

    Grr… I wonder what they send to those that earn 7-figures annually? A new car?

    :mrgreen:

  41. That’s a really awesome gift and I’d love to have it.

    But I thought you and Google weren’t on good terms?

  42. bob says:

    Looks like a pretty cool christmas gift.
    John, I am in!
    Btw, how to get Google to send you Christmas present?

  43. MeNo says:

    I haven’t got one πŸ™
    But I haven’t got a $30000/month income either. Actually, AdSense has brought me so far ~$0.0.
    So I’d like to have that, but giving me the thing would be like giving it to a third-world blogger, a really Angelina Jolie-like thing to do. πŸ˜† So I really hope you give it to me, and my ego really hopes you don’t.
    You decide. Cheers.

  44. bob says:

    What a cool christmas present!
    John, I am in!

    BTW, how to get Google to sent you christmas present?

  45. Boris says:

    Since I did not make the 500k$ this time, I have to win it, if I want it. And I want it πŸ˜‰

    Best Wishes for 2008 everbody!

    Don’t know why I can’t seem to post it in the first time.

  49. Teach Me $$ says:

    Wow πŸ˜› , 50 comments in less than 46 min of this post. Guess the flash card from google is in hot demand.

  50. Jamie says:

    Might as well reply, since John told me to ‘reply now’. I’m just following orders. 😈

  51. Luck you John!

    I’m up for getting that Google Flash drive. Definately will come in handy during my last semester at college.

  52. Juha Ylitalo says:

    It will still take a while, before I am going to get into Google’s Christmas gift lists …
    Not really sure, what I would do with it, but if you don’t want it, I am sure I can think something. πŸ™‚

  53. I want one too! πŸ™

  54. James Wilcox says:

    That’s pretty cool of Google to do that. Of course, they realize giving something away to someone like John Chow means you get their name viewed a few thousand times. I’ll take that off your hands for you πŸ™‚

  55. Ali says:

    Hey John,
    this is the first time i comment on your blog, (I’m a regular reader)
    actually it’s for that tiny gift you shown there,
    well even if get it, you have to send it to France, which is gonna cost you,
    Tell you what, I’ll let you know, when I’ll get my own from google by blogging,
    Getting back to you soon,
    Ali

  56. Chris says:

    Me want :mrgreen:

    No gift for me. It’s nice how you gave Shoemoney some bonus exposure. πŸ™‚

  58. Count me in, John…and Happy Boxing Day! πŸ™‚

    I want that Google gift.. Please.. πŸ™„

  65. Hi John
    As usual yet another interesting blog post. You seem to be throwing them out dime a dozen. I don’t know where you get all the nice inspiration, but it’s always interesting to read.
    I won’t hide the fact that I think that gift was rather smart. What the heck. I might soon do a review of your nice site. Not to bribe you into winning, ’cause I do realize postage outside the States could ruin your budget… πŸ˜€

    Happy New Year everyone. πŸ™‚

  66. Tyson says:

    I would like the Google Gift, please.

  67. John, I’m having a problem watching the video. Is there an issue with it or is it just my computer acting up?

  68. mw says:

    wow nice gift i didnt even recieve one

  69. Eastwood says:

    yes! yes! I’d like a 2GB google drive!

  70. Dave says:

    My wallet looks like George Costanza’s wallet. I always have room for one more thing. A 2GB flash drive would go perfectly.

  71. Nelson says:

    It’s really a nice gift. I want that πŸ˜€

  72. David Dunn says:

    Nice gift from Google. I can only wish that my AdSense earnings were high enough to get one of these!

    Looks pretty cool though!

    Count my in to the giveaway – would be great :mrgreen:

  73. Gosh, it sure is nice of them to think of you for the holidays! Hehehe.

  74. Did you get any other cool gifts from vendors?

  75. Tish says:

    Awesome gift! I’d love to win. πŸ™‚

  76. Enkay Blog says:

    Count me in John!

  77. Jim says:

    i want to learn how to do what you do – this is fascinating – i got enough passion about enough subjects to manage a blog the right way – but…

    it’s a question of learning what you bloggers already know and putting it to use before our 50th wedding anniversary (we just had our 5th 12/20).

    anyway john chow – make a deal with you – send me the drive, and i’ll return it to you in the future. it will stand as inspiration to give this new project a valiant effort.

    if things go well – i’d be delighted to hand it over in person (thus proving my success and hard work)

    merry Christmas to you and your family – great santa picture (however i think our son was even more terrified then your daughter)

  78. Todd Austin says:

    I’ll take it off your hands John!

  79. Ben says:

    Man, I wonder what exactly I have to do throughout the next year to get one of those… Other then spend money, of course.

  80. JoeTech.com says:

    I’d like to win it. Google didn’t send me anything this year.

  81. KiwiPulse says:

    I promised myself to not be tempted by the evil, I guess it would be for next year. I’m in! πŸ‘Ώ

  82. I wish I was as cool as you to get a christmas gift from Google….that is awesome. I would love to have something as awesome as that. I bet if I won that, it would get my blog hits up more. Especially if I gave link love to the person who I won it from πŸ™‚

  83. DudoSvillac says:

    This is a very cool gift. Count me in for it. 😎

    Don’t forget me count me in

  96. Alan Johnson says:

    Pretty thoughtful gift and yes, aside from that card being a little to thick I’d say everywhing was done in pretty good taste. Even for large companies such as Google, a little gesture every now and then does pay off.

    Alan Johnson

    PS: I’ll have to pass on the business card holder, I’m sure some other readers will find it useful though πŸ™‚

  97. Stuart says:

    Ok, I got one of these for christmas as well and I did exactly what you were thinking of John – “bite this little bit off and put it in my wallet”. Unfortunately there were wires in the hinges of the little section into the main part of the card and I completely stuffed it. Oh well the card holder is the nicest part of the present and has replaced my worn out wallet!

  98. Snownation says:

    I will take that belated Christmas gift!

  99. Jehan says:

    Hey there John!
    Heck, you wanna break the flash drive from the card? That would make it too small eh? Easier to lose.
    By the way, Count Me In!

    Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

    nice gift from google john grats!

  103. jmarzo says:

    It would be really nice if I had one of those gifts from big companies. I bet you have to be a premium member to have one of those. Since I don’t have that kind of presence, I wish there’s a chance for me to get it. Nice gift. Congratulations John.

  104. ATV Style says:

    It’s nice of google to send gifts, but I bet theres a spike on eBay for people re-gifting them.

    Whats with the Shoemoney shirt? I don’t know if you’ve noticed but Shoemoney has had his traffic stats (Alexa) fall by almost 60% since the start of the year and since you ran your feed competition with him both of your stats are almost identical in pattern and both headed downwards.

    You are who you associate with. You’re both still behemoths but your share is shrinking fast, time for another stunt imo!

  105. Greg Stratz says:

    h,,, been getting checks for 5 months straight now.. I was hoping they would send me a gift but no such luck. Though the mail might be late. Any who maybe next year.

    1. Etienne Teo says:

      How long with it take for them to send a present?

    2. Doug says:

      In the past Google sent presents to Adsense and Adword users… so you would get 2 identical gifts. This year they only sent gifts to people who spend money with Adwords, and just a card to Adsense users that earned a significant amount of money. I guess they are thinking they already give you money via Adsense, so they don’t need to give you a present as well.

    care to share all your strategies and techniques (show hand πŸ˜‰ ) on how you make so much money for Google that Larry Page gave you Christmas gifts. πŸ˜›
    All of us here want to learn a trick or two from you on how to make real big bucks online :mrgreen: so that we all can receive a Christmas gift from Google by next year. 😎
    Wouldn’t it be better than you having a luck balloting to give your precious Google card holder… πŸ’‘ πŸ’‘

  133. andy says:

    Gotta say mate that is one the best marketing ideas you have done. The traffic you will drive (and assoicated ad revenue) from this giveaway will make this a very profitable gift. Great stuff….I should use this idea for the christmas gifts I don’t want.

    Cheers,
    Andy

    1. Did you intend to use John’s pic for your MBL avatar? πŸ˜•

  134. I liked Yahoo’s gift much better but this is still good for a laugh or two.

  135. Louie says:

    No Google gift here. Not even an e-mail. πŸ˜›

  136. I don’t make google enough money yet to get anything from them. Maybe one day!

    John –
    When using video to demonstrate a product, please don’t flip it around and over repeatedly. I thought I was going to be sick waiting for the box to settle down. I’d love a chance at the Google gift, though, so count me in.

  154. Mr. Rajawang says:

    I want it too! Count me in. BTW, nice videos since you got the cam john.

  155. SEO Rob says:

    I actually liked the boxed flipping around and around.. it really gave me the chance to see the whole box. Count me in for the Google gift as well.. I would cherish it forever!

  156. I didn’t get anything from Google, not even a card πŸ˜₯
    Must be because my site only nets them about $10 a month. Maybe next year I will be pushing $xx,xxx and I may get something from the mighty “G”.

  167. silvino says:

    great gift! but.. i don’t w4nt it, tnkz. your google check is much better ..from a philosophical point of view 😈

  168. All I got was a that Google Xmas card.

  169. Viditop says:

    Sweet πŸ˜‰
    I know of a few people getting that gift! Nice one πŸ˜‰

  170. Samuel says:

    I’d absolutely love that for college!

    My last one broke and is currently NOT WORKING, and amazingly, trying to send things by email all the time just doesn’t work.

    Plus it looks mega cool!

    Count me in john

  172. Eli says:

    Very very nice present in my opinion! I wish I made a big enough difference on the internet for large companies such as Google & Yahoo! to send me Christmas gifts πŸ˜‰

  173. seo audit says:

    Put me on the list :mrgreen:

  174. seo audit says:

    Also,. next time, spin the box slower in front of the camera 😎

  175. Hyder says:

    OK, You got me to comment. Can I get the gift shipped me to please, thanks! πŸ™‚

    Happy Holidays to you John!

  176. Nic says:

    My misery is now over….

    I also received one of those nice boxes complete with card from Google, however when i opened the box there was nothing inside…. boo hooo.
    I have been wondering for over a week now what was stolen in the mail. Now I know what i am missing out on.

    You are right it does look better than last year, I just wish I had actually received it.

  177. Benny Ong says:

    My wallet is big enough and can keep it in there anytime. Please include me in the draw that you wish to send the gift to. Why not make your own Johnchow.com merchandise and give them away. I am pretty sure it will worth more than Google’s imprint on it. =) Cheers….

  178. Count me in! Great prize!

  179. AnimeMagazin says:

    Really nice gift John,
    google didn`t even bother to send me a mail so hey lucky you.
    and count me in for the draw it would be nice to have something goggle branded and John Chow pre-owned πŸ˜€

  180. ThienLee says:

    count me in..
    thanks

  181. mrkbsm says:

  184. waigs says:

    I wish I got something from google

  185. Bubba says:

    I’d love it if my wife was fortunate enough to receive this cool gift. I’m 4 months into my internet marketing career, taking a chance and getting ready to quit the J. O. B.. My wife doesn’t understand the revolution that is going on and could use some encouragement from a successful internet guru like yourself John.

    On the other hand, when I tell her that to qualify for this gift from Google next year I’ll have to do at least 6 figures with them, she’s going to say “if you have to do 6 figures for this gift, how the heck much money are you going to have to make online before we can buy a new vehicle?!”

    So, I would give it to one of our neighbourhood schools. That’s where I donate my out-of-date computers.

    Darn, I’d really love that logo though!

  186. Pretty nifty I must say! I’d love to win it. Count me in the drawing.

  187. Simon Rodney says:

    Great publicity from Google πŸ˜›
    I am always looking for a usb stick! count me in!

  188. Sucharith says:

    Looks great! :mrgreen: Looks g8! I’d like to try my luck as well !

  189. paowiee says:

    Nice gift! Give it to me pls! πŸ™‚

  190. Katana says:

    Google didn’t send me any gifts. Hopefully I can win yours πŸ˜›

  191. Yes, that’d be a nice X’mas gift! Hope I win! I’m also thinking that business card sized USB cards is a great way to go…

  192. ArahMan7 says:

    For now, Google has yet to send me anything, but give me six months from now I’m sure (I guaranteed) Google will take notice of my blog and will sent me a nice little present at the end of 2008!

    (Confidently) Mark my words, Mr. John Chow. πŸ˜‰

    Greetings and lots of love from Malaysia.

    p/s May Joy be your gift at Christmas and may Faith, Hope and Love be your treasures in the New Year.

  193. Daniel says:

    Hi John,

    You must be a VIP, helps Google to generate alots of income so Google send you this gift.
    Did you check carefully whether the NameCard holder got any Google cheque inside ? πŸ™‚
    I’m a Newbie in IM from singapore, need to learn alots of Secrets from you.
    John, make sure you downloaded all your Secrets in making money online into the flash drive before you give it to me πŸ™‚ Okie just joking, me of course will love to have that as a Gift from you by Google. HaHa I will remember YOU & GOOGLE for life…
    All the best wishes to you in 2008,
    To all your success,

  199. Was just thinking I wish I could get this Gift and good that I watched your video till the end. I hope to win this gift from you πŸ˜›

  200. Winsor says:

    reply to win! haha!

    interesting. I’m like how slow.

    The flash drive card looks really cool. How I wish google sent me one too.

  201. Really a nice gift. But I didn’t get one from Google. They may send me a new year gift. I hope so and those who didn’t get a Christmas gift also can hope so.

  202. Kit says:

    Interesting…I just realized I enjoy listening more than reading. Sometimes I just skip the post if there is too many words.

  203. Since our Christmas included having our car stolen 6 days before Christmas I sure could use some Cheering up. A Google Flash drive would help.

    Merry Christmas everyone.

  204. Martin says:

    Nice. How much do you have to earn/spend for you to get that gift from google?

  205. Doug says:

    Dear Santa John,

    All I want for Christmas this year is a Google Flashdrive. As you know… I have been a very good boy. I could go on and on about myself… like feeding the homeless, walking old ladies across the street, etc… but I am sure you already know all about my selfless acts.

    Merry Christmas to One and All,

    Doug

  206. silvino says:

    nah.. you can keep it 😈

  207. Steve says:

  212. how much do you need to earn to get a gift?

  213. Collin LaHay says:

    Did I hear the word free? Sign me up!

  214. michael says:

    I did not get any gift from google. I saw the owner of selfmademinds.com got a gift like that on 8th of december, you got one on 27. Should I wait more? Or I will win yours? πŸ˜€

  215. Steve says:

    I’ll take it off your hands John!

    Thanks
    Steve

    Thanks

  219. Gasmoney says:

    nice gift and im sure you have a great idea for next year since this was a very popular post.

  220. jim says:

    Do you know what the criteria was for getting that?

  221. Dan says:

    I got one, too. But it doesn’t work. Hasn’t worked since I got it. πŸ™

  222. Simon says:

    Ooohhh, nice present!

    Count me in if you don’t mind sending it to New Zealand.

  223. Jason says:

    Pretty cool. Are there different gifts for different earnings brackets?

  224. chanter says:

    Wow, nicey gift πŸ˜€

    Happy Holidays! You guyz are great with Adsense

  225. IngaOz says:

    Well… I would like to receive the present from Google, but… Until now I’m one big looser LOL… No spends there, no big earnings either (because if there are some big earnings I would be’ call myself a looser ;). All my hope is for next year. I hope that i can finally be more professional and smarter in this big blogging community:)

  226. Faisal says:

    Oh my! what a cool gift from google! you’ve been an inspiration to me John. I have started a site and hope I could be like you one day. You can see my webiste if you click on my name. One more thing, I am gonna receive my first adsense payment the end of this month! woo! It would be nice if I get that google gift too…hehe..you know what I’m talking about. ciao

  227. Howard says:

    Wait, you said the little connector will snap off the rest of the card, does that mean all the flash space is stored on that tiny piece? Or did I misunderstanding something…

  228. Nice of you to give back to the readers John!

  229. I am IN

    I love the box

  230. Nope, I didn’t get anything from Google – I guess I’ll have to spend more on AdWords and/or earn more through AdSense πŸ˜‰

    But it’s a cool gift – very nice of you to give it away πŸ™‚

  231. Patrick says:

    I’ll take it. Why not I can use it.

  232. I received one too! I gaved it to my brother since I can’t really use it… It’s worth $14.95 :)))

    And imagine that I’ve spend around $0.5M with adwords this year… google is very generous isn’t it? But hey it’s a free gift Thanks google!

  233. Well at least you got something John, nice work and I hope you and your family had a great holiday season.

  234. Where does Google make money from you John?

  235. Joakim says:

    No, they didn’t send me anything… So I’d like to win yours πŸ˜‰

  236. Brandie says:

    I didn’t get a present from google this year, but I just started out blogging… so that’s no big suprise lol. Wow a 2GB? That’s come in handy! Especially where I’m just starting out! Ah, anyway… congrats to whoever wins it! πŸ™‚ I don’t ever win anything, so I’m going ahead and congratulating the lucky person! πŸ™‚

  237. wordvixen says:

    I’m so loving that flash drive- but that’s probably because I like normal things done in unique ways. Seriously, if it was just a normal drive with Google printed on it, it wouldn’t be half as cool. Nice business card holder too. 😎

  238. Last year I got a Google blanket but this year I got nothing. Guess I need to start spending more money with them again! I’d love to win your Google gift John!

  239. Weblog Money says:

    That’s awesome John, something to look forward to next Christmas! And yes I would love to win it from ya John! Thx!

  240. Zigfred says:

    Everybody can have the box, the business card holder and the google christmas card. But send me the flash drive and you can win a review on my site !!!

  241. Arjun R. says:

    Enter Me! Happy Holidays to everyone!

  242. BuzzBoy says:

    Wow, John. Is this a record? 281 comments on this posts as of my comment. Nicely done. Maybe it’s the use of video?

  243. Christoph says:

    Seems like Google sent out quite a few different gifts this year. But most people think it all is on the cheap side ….

  244. oZ says:

    Thats awesome, count me in πŸ˜‰

  245. Enter me please. πŸ™‚ Happy Holidays Everyone!

  246. Rekzai says:

    I didn’t get anything from google πŸ™

    I would love to win that πŸ™‚

  247. Colin Christopher says:

    Nice, Pick me! 😈

  248. Murali says:

    Well I think its going to be a while before I get a present from one of
    these ad campaign sites. Just started blogging a month back. But yeah count me in.

  249. Steve! says:

    Hang on, I want one of those! HEY GOOGLE! Give me one. 😈
    What did yahoo give? And what is this for?

  251. I didn’t get the google gift – so either I didn’t get the minimum or someone swiped it… lol.

  252. Tym Barker says:

    Hi John,

    I’d love to be able to give this to a teacher at our neighborhood school. That’s where I donate my used computers.

  253. Suzanne says:

    I got a 2 GB thumb drive for xmas an it doesn’t work ;-( This would be a nice replacement and way cooler.

    Count me in!

    THANKS

  254. Seanology says:

    Nice gift! I guess Google doesn’t like me as much as you πŸ™ I guess I don’t make them enough money (yet).

  255. Putra says:

    I want one! I’m way over here in Singapore!

    Happy new year everyone!

  256. kt says:

    Is it too late to get in on the contest? Pick me please 😯

  257. Darren says:

    I thought it was going to be stuffed full of money! Hehe.

  258. mack goodman says:

    πŸ™‚ I would love to get a gift from the master.

  259. Lisa says:

    The whole time I was watching the video I was becoming more and more envious of you because that is one cool gift. Then when you said you were giving it away, I about wet myself. Crossing fingers ❗

  260. RomanianDude says:

    Nice present, John!

    Happy and Prosperous New Year to all you greedy little monkeys, from Romania! πŸ˜‰

    By the way, to whom do they send these gifts ? How do they select people ?

  268. That’s, um, really, er, neat. 😐

  269. BladedThoth says:

    I would definitely be interested in this. I can always use a new USB drive, and the case would be handy to stick my business cards in too.

  270. Aibek D. says:

    John,
