pic     Yes, you‘re the boss of yourself - and perhaps of Google!

I would assume that most Fab40 sisters who have separate blogs or websites are using Google Adsense to bring in more income. If you are, and want to share your stories or concerns about it, let me know in a comment and we can get a dialog going.

If you‘re not, here’s stuff you might be interested in:

1. Generally, adding Google adsense to a site does not distract from the overall look of your page. That’s because when you‘re going through their “Wizard” and designing your ads, you can make them any color you want, most any size, and you can place them wherever you want on your page.

2. Google will usually fill the ad spots with ads that are relavant to what you‘re saying on your blog or website. If they don’t, or if an ad comes up that’s in competition with you or that offends you, you can always go to your Adsense account page and put them on a list of banned ads for your page.

3. When people click on a Google ad, you make money. You don’t have to do anything. Sometimes you only make a few cents. But occasionally you’ll get an ad that, when clicked on, brings in more. The ultimate key is that the more people who go to your site, statistically, the more chances you have of people clicking on the Google ads.

A Huge Note of Caution
Never ever ever click on the ads on your own site. That’s the easiest and quickest way to get ousted out of the Adsense program.  

Plus, tell well-meaning friends NOT to click on your ads, either. I don’t know how they do it, but ... Google will know.  

If you accidentally click on one of your own ads, you must write to them immediately and explain that it was just an accident. They allow for that, as long as you tell them.

I've got more details in my new article,[Link Removed] Let me know if I haven't answered all your questions, because I want to try to cover everything if I can.

    • Thanks, Lola.

      Eva, I would think a booksite is enough. I especially like your booklocker site. The scribd is good, but the booklocker is a great place to drive traffic! I’m not earning adsense on my booksite (, it’s just there as kind of an online resume. Driving traffic to booklocker is great, IMHO there’s no need to complicate your life with a zillion websites. So keep doing what you‘re doing, sweetie.
