So far the result has been encouraging. I’ve also noticed an increase in my RSS subscription.

In addition to running my ads at, I am also testing them over at several other blogs such as

I saw the ad at JC’s site.

I’d already visited sabahan (which I think is a better site) and had it book marked, so I just visited without clicking the adwords. 🙂

lucia, welcome to! The site targeted AdWords campaign is charged on a CPM basis not ppc. So the more clicks the better 🙂

well, I definitely found this blog through the John Chow site adsense ad. I had never heard of this blog before that. And I immediately subscribed.

I will be very interested in hearing the results of this compared to the ReviewMe article, and also what you spent for the adWords campaign (since I’ve never used adWords).

I’ve visited your blog before. I even let you know about my Kontera plugin and I get hits from your blog. 🙂

Your blog is a good resource — but I think you paying JohnChow money is a waste of good money!

But thanks for the welcome.
