Try Something For Me

Oh, never mind!

  1. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't see any ads anywhere on any page. I even turned off SafariBlock, quit Safari and reloaded. Still no ads.

  2. I typed in nslog/1234 and found a fishing entry.

    The Google ad took me here:

    The ad was small and out of the way.

  3. Just so you know, your recommendation that people click on the ads is technically against the AdSense Terms of Service. See Section 5. I'll click one anyway : ).

  4. The ads on this entry discuss blogs. I see your ads all the time. I even click on them from time to time. I didn't click this time though, because it does violate the TOS of AdSense, and I am a paranoid AdSense user. Sorry. I'll get one for you when one interests me.

  5. I went to a randomly-numbered entry and clicked an AdSense link that simply said "Blog", but took me to the Christian Singles Network.

    I think one thing I don't like about Google's AdSense is that if they go to the trouble to use a little JavaScript to prevent the browser's status bar from displaying the hyperlink you're hovering over, they may as well put in a tad more effort and make it display the link that you'll be eventually forwarded to. In other words, I know it doesn't make sense for the status bar to say blah blah blah, so I can understand why they hide it. But why not do the "good" (or "not evil") thing and have it display the real URI instead?

  6. When I hover over the ads on this page in Safari, it does show the link ( in the status bar temporarily. Am I missing something in your comment?

  7. Woh! I swear my penis is psychic or something! I chose a seemingly random number, put it in and found the blog entry named "Britney Spears on Female Masturbation".

  8. Hovering over the link in Firefox on winblows doesn't yield the URL in the status bar, though that could be a side effect of some extension or other (doubtful).

  9. Congratulations. You're little experiment made double the amount that I've made in the past year. I figure if Google is still around in 15 years, I'll be able to collect a check from them 🙂

  10. I didn't click any ads. I am curious though, as to the distribution of random numbers people may have chosen; for example, my instinct was to pop in a date from history- so I'm wondering if the majority of your hits might have been numbers from 1-2006 or such.

    My random hit pulled up an NSLog I could have commented heavily upon, as a user of the product being discussed.
