Google Ads and IE Plugins
Back in August I added Google adwords to the IE Plugins page. If at all possible I plan to keep the site advert free but the IE Plugins, with the possible exception of my blogs atom feed, are the biggest bandwidth consumers by a fair way.
All-in-all it’s been a pretty painless process that’s not really netted me any cash. You’re not allowed to discuss how much you’ve made under the terms and conditions (as I understand them) but in my case it doesn’t pay for the bandwidth the plugins require; IE users don’t like clicking on adverts :) On the up side my plugins have been downloaded almost 680,000 times over the last two and half years. Which means at least a handful of people have found them useful!
