AdMob: Payment sent!

There is something ever so exciting about getting an AdMob Payment notification email.

We’ve had AdMob advertising on SMS Text News Mobile for quite a while and it routinely generates maybe $70-$80 a month. Certainly not enough to fund an Unlimited Drinks event in London, but you know, it works, this mobile advertising thing.

If you’re one of the mobile readers clicking now and again on little adverts that appeal, good-on-ya. I have to confess I’ve clicked once or twice. Not, I hasten to add, in a bid to drive up revenue. Not at all. More out of curiosity because the advertising is actually working on me.

I particularly like to see ads that are targeted to the browser or mobile handset that I’m using at the time, (e.g. “Get ringtones and themes for your iPhone/Nokia”). I’ve been a customer of that service a few times as a result.

Ewan! That is click fraud. I know I am going to sound like a silly school teacher -but you can get banned from AdMob and Google Mobile etc for doing this! Don't admit it! Then you won't be getting any 70 dollar revenue!

I know your point Bena, I don't do anything with Google. If AdMob have a
problem with me clicking on their ads and then buying from their customers,
then I would quickly develop a massive, massive problem with AdMob 😉

It's not fraud when I see something interesting on SMS Text News Mobile,
click, and then buy a ringtone or a the like! On principle, I've never
clicked on something and not bought something or signed up to try something
out.
