I believe Digg users do familiar with ads and they were information oriented user rather than Google users where come from searching process and they are buyer oriented. So we better derive traffic from Google Gaman. I go firstlah..LOL.

The sentence should read “it’s not surprising” not “it’s surprising” 🙂

Yep, digg and Slashdot traffic are virtually useless from a traffic to click conversion aspect. Essentially, technically-adept visitors make poor target audiences.

If Gaman doesn’t mind me posting a link here, you might want to take a look at my recent take on why a tech-savvy audience should not be targetted for AdSense earnings.

is you are already using digg, you should know what adsense is all about. Get my drift? 😉

Digg users mostly techies. And techies seldom click on ads. Google traffic could consist lots of non-techies, who they’re always curious about text ad link like adsense or banner ads, so they tend to click more 🙂
