Every now and then i look at the statistics and traffic patterns on this site. The last 6 months have seen a drastic upswing in the number of hits and the source of that seems to be links from a few forums and sites that have driven this sites "google-score" way up. Over 50% of "in links" are from google. At the same time, a large percentage the"out links" are also to google as visitors continue their investigation process.
So i figured i'd add a google search bar to the site (save people a click or two). As i went to do this i discovered a whole bunch of tools that google has to add automatic content (including ads) to sites - so i'm trying them out (but lest anyone think i'm going to get rich, based on traffic it looks like i'll be lucky to get $1 per month!) I'm curious to see how good google is at pushing "relevent ads" to people viewing these pages - so if you happen to notice, make a note in the comments as to how they're doing...
