I’ve learned some interesting things in the last few days about Google ads placed within a WordPress blog. It looks like a lot of people visit the sites hosted here because the stats show the visitors, visits, page views and hits. The amount of page views in the Adsense stats are different. Usually, the page views and clicks don’t even show up at all. There are even instances where clicks have no earnings. It appears that my business model of providing free WordPress hosting to serve my ads is flawed because those sites simply do not register clicks that earn revenue. The sites that do earn income are those that are not database driven. The only ads that really work are those imbedded in flat files. Interesting.
