Paris Spence-Lang – 12 Year Old Google Whore

It seems the Vancouver Sun newspaper is on a Dot Com kick of late. After profiling me last Wednesday, they’ve gone and wrote a story about 12 year old Paris Spence-Lang, a grade 7 student with a financial advice blog call FunnyMunny.ca.

Now, most 12 year old probably have better things to do than blog about financial advice but Paris is one of those rare gifted kids. “I always thought it was fun to decide what to do with my money, but it’s hard to do when you don’t have a lot of it, because I’m just a kid,” Spence-Lang told the Vancouver Sun.

FunnyMunny offers financial advice for other kids of Paris’ age. The advice range from how to negotiate a better allowance using a Power-Point presentation to why you should never set up a lemonade stand. There is even a post on how to make a killing off a blog! Paris admits that’s one of the reasons he started his blog.

A big reason that I started my blog is because my mom told me that people make revenue off of them. I still wasn’t sure about it, but then she said that some people actually live off of the revenue they’re making! Not to mention compiling their articles into books and who knows what that can lead to!

You gotta love this kid! ๐Ÿ˜€

To monetize his blog, Paris has installed Google AdSense. However, he needs some help with the optimization – their current placements won’t do him much good. FunnyMunny is hosted by Blogspot but on January 18, Paris got a $12 a week raise in his allowance and registered the name funnymunny.ca. The domain is set up incorrectly however. Every link on the blog redirects to funnymunny.ca. To Google, this is just one big page. You need to fix that Paris, or you won’t be getting much search traffic from Google.

Check out FunnyMunny.ca and see the financial world through the eyes of a very smart 12 year old. After reading it, I’m glad I never set up any lemonade stands!
