His blog has been consistently between ranked 35th and 45th of the most popular in the world according to Technorati top 100 and yet he can’t even make decent income from AdSense.

Is implementing AdSense to monetize a blog a waste of time?

For some blogs, I believe AdSense is the better choice but keep in mind that you need to optimize your ads in order to maximize your earning potential. But if that doesn’t work, you should start looking for other alternatives.

I guess it’s all depends on your situation.

    Like I said, he is not Darren Rowse.

    A lot of good bloggers don’t take that kind of thing seriously. Revenue isn’t all that important in blogging when your interest in blogging isn’t making money in the first place.

    While I understand where you are going, I am talking about a different thing here if you know what I mean 🙂

    I don’t take advertising revenue very seriously.

    Adsense would probably work or he might try another form of advertising. But he’s not the kind that takes things like that seriously.

    The fact is that if you don’t make money, you can’t support yourself as a professional blogger. But this guy is not Darren Rowse and he’s not a pro blogger. The point of this post is that AdSense does not work for everyone.

    Or whether money is that important to you than blogging. Come on, this is Guy Kawasaki. I’m not all for Apple…but he wrote the book (literally) on spreading the word of mouth.
