I promised I would write about how WordAds are working for me, so here is the promised post. I only discovered that WordPress was offering a program of its own instead of the dreadful and malicious Google AdSense recently. You don’t need to do anything to make the program work other than going on your Settings page and enabling WordAds.
The program counts your ad impressions based on a formula of its own. Ad impressions are not equal to hits or individual IPs. WordPress takes blog visits from some countries into account but not others. So if most of your readership is not in the US, this program might not work as well for you.
Under the fold, you can see my WordAds earnings for December 2013 and January 2014. Next to the ad impressions, I wrote the number of total hits for each month. Forgive the handwriting, but if you tried writing figures in a Windows snipping tool, you’ll understand.
You will see that a significantly larger number of hits translates into a smaller number of ad impressions.
The conclusion is that WordAds rocks, and I recommend it to anybody. Any amount you get after connecting WordAds is bigger than what you had without it, so it’s all good.
