Blogger Cash Cow for Google

I bet Google is worth $700 a share on the float it makes from blogger alone.

How it works? You sign up for Adsense. For every hit on an add on your page Google collects a fee from an advertiser that it holds till you reach a certain amount. Say 100 dollars which takes about forever so that whole time they are holding your money they are earning interest on it. Pretty good gig I would say...

Figure 50 million bloggers and websites that use adsense if they each have $50 (median for payout) sitting in an account it is $2,500,000,000.00 dollars that is earning interest every month. If you figure they are at least making treasury yield on the interest that is roughly $10.5 million dollars in interest they are making off your money. This is just a side business from the % they are making on the actual advertising contracts.

PS If you are not using adsense on your blog you can click on the link on the right column and sign up. Something is better then nothing.

Smart people there...

I would love to be smart enough to rip people off effectively.

Hey, Brian... wanna come over and go vandalizing people's Christmas lawn displays with me? Perhaps steal a few baby Jeebus's?

I'm restless and need some naughtiness.
