Is Everyone Buying Ads On My Blog Now?

First, I get Webmaster Talk doing a custom Google ad on my blog, now is getting in on the act. They’re also poking a little fun at Webmaster Talk for spelling my name wrong. For those who haven’t seen it, here’s the ad.


Just for fun, I did an ad buy on Webmaster Talk through Google AdWords. I’m sure they’ll get a kick out of it. This maybe a new way for sites to communicate with each other – IMing through Google ads!

You may also noticed new shopping ads appearing at the bottom of each blog posts. Those are from my TTZ Media Network. I don’t know how well they’re do since TTZ Media works best with technology review sites. However, I think there are a good number of tech readers who visit this blog. So, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Monetizing a site or blog is all about experimenting and tweaking. The chances of hitting the target right out of the gate are next to impossible. Therefore, you always have to fool around with placement, ad types, colors, etc. I guess the key is to never settle, always tweak.

If anyone else wants to send me a message via Google ads, you can do so here. Just make sure to bid enough for your ad to appear. 🙂

    Looks like ‘Webmaster Talk’ corrected the spelling. (and I also get to see the ad from Canada, so it’s not [no longer?] targeting just US)

    Now’ve you’ve got too many ads on your site. I’m going to have to become a feed reader as all these ads are getting to be too much

    Great marketing. It goes back to the age old strategy of appealing to one’s vanity. Of course it worked as there’s a whole post dedicated to it. Nice work to the both of you (John and Justin).

  10. There will always be copycats.

    I still see my ad showing most of the time.

    I guess they are to cheap. 🙂

    What Steve said. Feeds it is.

  12. Justin says:


    I did it more as a joke, then marketing. That’s why I am not dumping a lot of money into it.


  13. Justin,
    I was just joking also (at least the part about you being cheap). I’m sure it turned out to be a very worthwhile investment for you since John made this post. 😉

  14. Justin says:

    Hell, everyone is cheap! lol Indeed it was worth it, as you said, I did get mentioned. 🙂

  15. Roberto says:

    Seeing it that way, I guess it was a very worthwhile investment for both of you, nice idea, and very well managed by John too. Saludos.

    Pretty funny. Thanks for the tips on tweaking, it is easy to think that lopping some Adsense ads on the pages is enough.
