WordAds- Two Thumbs Down
November 19, 2012 § 10 Comments
So, I posted a few weeks back about hooking up ads to my website to try to generate income which could be put back into the tiny house community (say for a better platform for the Tiny House Chats or something like that). I was gearing up to switch my blog to a different platform when I read that WordPress started WordAds. I applied to their program even though it said very little about the pay scale (that is usually an indicator of a not very good pay scale…). I read some reviews which weren’t great but still, it was worth trying if it was decent and I didn’t have to do any added effort to make that happen. That was nearly 6 weeks ago I think, they don’t post results until ‘2-3 weeks after the end of the month’.
I got my earnings back a couple days ago though, 29,242 views in three weeks equates to $2.39 cents. Not only that but I don’t even get to collect the ‘earnings’ until there is $100.00 in there. So at this rate, in three and a half years I will get a check for $100.00! (I think I could do better).
I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations and/or good experiences on where to switch my site hosting to in order to get the best advertising revenues or any other suggestions of how to do better? Thanks everyone!
