Ad Revenue for Google from Blogs

Google is making a fortune from several ad revenue formats. One of them is their where one can set up a Blog like the one I am having. Google allows advertisers to put their ads on the Blog and make money. Being a Graphic designer, I post my designs on my blog and till now some 1 Lakh 80 Thousand hits and my adsense account has a pity $ 16.00 from the last 8 years. This is because people search for various designs on the web and land up on one of my designs. They view or copy it and escape and never visit my site. I get money only if they visit my site and click on one of the Google Ads. Whereas Google can get money by utilising the hits on my blog. Google has to compensate for my efforts and give me a fair deal I guess.

Sunday, November 25, 2012


I am a Blogger since 2007 and was happy that my posts with my designs always topped the Google Image search until recently. It was in the first or second page in its category. Now a days it is not seen any where on the screen. The First pages are overtaken by the Web design Firms with better SEO. They have websites and the Blogs are relegated to the back pages. Even marketing sites like India Mart are listing my designs above e blogger. I am having good hits daily on my site. But Google has some how dropped their priority I guess.

Google Search Mistakes

I searched on Google Images by typing the word "Frock Designs" and I got 70% of the images of women in their 20's and 30's wearing Churidars and Gagras etc. posing as Models. Just a few images of girls in their Teens or younger wearing Frocks. Frocks are not meant for these grown up girls. Google has to get the sense right on their search programs I guess.

Dhan Theras in Kerala

Dhan Theras was a wet fire cracker in Kerala so was Diwali. The advertisers generally were pushing Akshaya Tritiya and Dhan Theras here in Kerala to woo the customers for some years. But now that Dhan Theras has got a cold response from Mallus just because they understood the logic ( or may be not) of getting more wealth if someone buys costly things like "GOLD" "HOMES" Expensive "ELECTRONIC GADGETS" or "SAREES" on these Auspicious Days.

Diwali Sales in Kerala

Diwali, the biggest Hindu festival in India is not celebrated in Kerala with much enthusiasm. But Onam is what Keralites are interested in. So Diwali is not a favourite for the Business community and Advt. fraternity here. It was evident in the Newspapers. The local businesses had a couple of advt. The desi corporates had some. Even the mood is not so upbeat in neighbouring Tamilnadu due to "Neelam" cyclone effect. Only the Textile shops there had some rush. The Gold shops did not see much rush. People (the aam aadmi) were just not in the festive mood.

Malayalam Newspaper Advertisement Trends of 2012

The Popular Malayalam Dailies are seeing a huge fall in Advertisement revenues from Local Clients. It is evident in the last couple of years. The Big spenders from Jewellery, Textile brand names are playing it more cautiously by releasing Colour advt. Full page, Half page etc. only during the Festival seasons. The Malayalam dailies are getting ads of Big Indian companies and MNC's during the off season. The Electronics, Automobile and Home Appliance brands are getting media spaces for a bargain tariff. Newspaper ads are going out of the reach of even big local brands in Kerala.

Flex Hoardings in Thrissur

Flex Hoardings are an excellent value for money media. A 500 - 1000 sq. ft. Flex with high quality print and advt. work done by top notch ad agencies will guarantee millions of eyeballs for 3-6 months or beyond as per the contract. The advertisers know that and the recent flex hoardings of Kalyan Sarees in Thrissur are a proof of that. Clear and crisp copy and visual of a female model dressed up to resemble a queen as the caption goes. Newspapers are trying their best to get the Flex hoardings out of the scene showing all the disasters they do to the public. They print photos of flex banners falling down on the head of passers by and creating havoc in the monsoon rain and wind. Compared to the price tag and duration of a colour advt., the flex hoarding delivers the message in large format for a longer period to more customers. The advertisers now prefer to give their ads in newspapers only during the peak festival seasons. The reason for the mushrooming of Flex hoardings is clear.

C & O ad-ventures: Webs Most Stolen Designs

C & O ad-ventures: Webs Most Stolen Designs

Webs Most Stolen Designs

There has been another surge of viewers on my Blog recently and our Hits crossed the 1,65,000 mark. Most of the visitors are from India and from abroad as well. This shows that a great number of visitors are copying the designs or getting "inspiration" out of our designs. Easy for them. Google stands to make money out of this. They are inserting Ads in my Blog. But they have blocked my Account for PPC and all I have earned till now from 2007 is $15.00 .....!! I tried another site Infinity Ads also to Monetize my Blog. But they are also cheating by not paying out any money.
