After having no donations in nearly 5 years with a presence on the net it's quite disheartening. I still don't get many hits, though what happened a couple of days ago was pretty amazing. I got 55 unique visitors to my pet rock shop in about 12 hours. I just actually bought a domain for it to. www.petrocksforsale.com
On average the pet rock site gets more hits per day than www.darcylee.com
Just for the search term Pet Rocks For Sale. It cost $20.19 NZ Dollars using my visa debit card. (You really should get a visa debit card if you want to spend money on the internet.) It's cool. I have 3 domains now.
So i'm thinking that because I haven't got one donation that google adsense might be the way forward. Google adsense are the ads that you see decorating this page. For every ad someone clicks I might earn 1 cent to 50 cents. Thats pretty much how they work. You click an ad and I get some money. Traffic makes them work. At the moment i've only earnt $20 US from them in 4 years but thats doing better than the donations i've gotton. So with that logic google ads are definately the way forward.
Unfortunately you don't get paid out until $100 US dollars is reached. Your not allowed to say click me about the ads or anything like that and i'm trying not to. Thoughs here is a thing for all websites maybe if you don't want to donate or are at least to poor then you should
click an ad on there website cause you now know that it will make them money. This applies to any website and any brand of ads. Your pretty much guaranteed that by clicking an ad on any website that you will be making that website money.
So with your new knowledge if you feel upto it click some ads on your favourite website you will be donating to their cause. I'm not saying click ads on this website that would get me in trouble but your best website or new or unique websites remember to earn them some money sometimes. If your poor this is a good way to donate to people who you feel worthy. Remember you do have the power to donate even with out money. Donate a click.
