Well i guess you all know what adsense means. Here is something i found and got my facts right.

AdSense’s advantages

  • AdSense is simple to join.
  • It’s easy to paste a bit of code into your pages.
  • It’s free to join.
  • You don’t have to spend time finding advertisers.
  • Google provides well written, highly relevant ads – chosen to closely match the content on your pages.
  • You don’t have to waste time choosing different ads for different pages.
  • You don’t have to mess around with different code for various affiliate programs.
  • You’re free to concentrate on providing good content and Google does the work of finding the best ads for your pages from 100,000 AdWords advertisers.
  • It’s suitable for beginners or marketing veterans.
  • AdSense provides simple, easy-to-understand stats.
  • If you have affiliate links on your site, you ARE allowed to add AdSense ads. However, with your affiliate links, you must not mimic the look and feel of the Google ads.

Disadvantages

  • One problem is inappropriate ads. You don’t want spammy junk advertised on your site. Google’s standards probably aren’t as high as yours. You can filter out 200 URLs, but in some industries that won’t be enough.
  • The stats Google supplies are inadequate. They’re easy to understand at a glance. However, they don’t tell you which ads people are clicking on, or which keywords are involved. That’s frustrating.
  • Also, I’d like to be able to identify and block ads that have very low payout rates, without doing a lot of sleuthing and messing around.
  • The minimum payout is $100, which is regarded as too high by sites which don’t receive much traffic. That won’t worry experienced webmasters.
  • Another disadvantage is that Google doesn’t want you to share your stats with other webmasters. The AdSense Terms and Conditions say:

“Confidentiality. You agree not to disclose Google Confidential Information without Google’s prior written consent. ‘Google Confidential Information’ includes without limitation: … (b) click-through rates or other statistics relating to Site performance in the Program provided to you by Google…”

 

  • A big disadvantage of the service is that Google doesn’t say how much its AdSense partners will receive. You’ll just receive an unknown share of the revenue.
  • The ad panels say “Ads by Google” – free advertising for Google. You don’t earn anything if someone clicks on that link.

Google has made several changes to its AdSense FAQ, clarifying varying things. For example, you CAN apply for separate accounts for separate web sites. I’ve done so, and checked with Google that it’s OK.

Read the rules – they look ambiguous to me. If in doubt, ask first!

Google has added “channels” which improve the tracking. I strongly recommend that you experiment with these. Sites with “excessive advertising” are being rejected.

PLEASE read the rules and FAQ. When I looked, some advice in the rules contradicted advice in the FAQ.

Will you buy this whoreshit ? Some of the users who have commented on the book don’t even use Adsense! Makes Sense?

One hell of an album. Must hear.

Alterbridge are:

  • Guitarist/songwriter: Mark Tremonti
  • Drummer: Scott Phllips
  • Bassist: Brian Marshall
  • Vocalist/guitarist: Myles Kennedy

Sound: As far as metal albums go, this is one of the greatest. There’s not a single track on this album which isn’t a genious piece of musical writing. It ranges from heavy and powerful tracks such as Metalingus, to slower and more emotional ballads such as In Loving Memory. All songs feature the breathtaking guitar playing of Mark Tremonti, with songs such as Open Your Eyes and Find The Real showing some insanely fast solos. Myles Kennedy is in my opinion one of the most talented vocalists in a modern rock band. I can’t fault their sound.

Lyrics: The lyrics on this album are very deep and meaningful. The song In Loving Memory is a perfect example of this. The majority of the lyrics were written by guitarist Mark Tremonti, which shows he’s talented beyond his instrument. The singing on this album is outstanding.

Impression: Overall this is an absolutely amazing album. It’s much better than the Creed records in my opinion, which I also love. My favourite songs are Burn It Down, In Loving Memory and Down To My Last, all of which are powerful and feature awesome guitaring. There’s nothing bad I can say. It’s a brilliant metal album, that’s definately worth getting and adding to your metal collection. Any Collection would be incomplete without it.

AudioSlave!


One hell of a SONG! Just let me know, if you want just it. will mail it across. anything for a fellow rock enthusiast!

I’m going to fight ‘em off
A seven nation army couldn’t hold me back
They’re gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
And I’m talking to myself at night
Because I can’t forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette
And a message coming from my eyes says leave it alone

Don’t want to hear about it
Every single one’s got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of Hell
And if I catch you coming back my way
I’m going to serve it to you
And that ain’t what you want to hear
But that’s what I’ll do
And a feeling coming from my bones says find a home

I’m going to Wichita
Far from this opera, forever more
I’m going to work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I’m bleeding and I’m bleeding and Im bleeding
Right before my Lord
All the words are going to bleed from me
And I will sing no more
And the stains coming from my blood tell me go back home
