Yes, it is November now. Google AdSense payment issue from September is still not solved.
The email I received today from Google said:
We’re writing you to let you know about an issue that affects your AdSense payments.
In your AdSense account you’ll notice that your September earnings are displayed as $0 on the homepage and don’t appear at all on the Payments page. While your earnings were correctly calculated and are securely stored, system issues have prevented us from displaying your correct earnings total and issuing your October payment, even if your account exceeded the payment threshold.
No action is required from you at the moment. We know that regular payments are important to you and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
As a publisher, I can do nothing but wait. See when Google will solve this 2 month longer issue.
As we know, all taxpayers resident in Canada must declare income from all kinds of sources, including those outside Canada, and must pay tax on their own taxable income.
There are three basic types of income. Employment income
Most of our Canadians earn income through employment. Employment income includes all benefits the employee receives in connection with the services he provide to employer. So it is including any bonuses, gratuities, or honorariums, as well as any retiring allowance.
Basically, employer will withhold and remit to the Canada Revenue Agency on your behalf your income tax and Employment Insurance and CPP/QPP. The whole year records will be shown on the T4s.
Today I added a new Google AdSense wide Skyscraper ad unit on the right side.
The purpose is to test the number of Page impressions, not for ads earning. If it is for earning, I always think less is better. And I will save the best place for the only one ads.
There are more and more bloggers have Google AdSense on their blogs. It is good for blogger and also good for audiance.
First of all, the content is king. I believe it. The good content can attrack Users attention and also Google likes it.
Then If users come to your site or blog, finish reading the main content of the page. He may do a quick look at the other interesting thing on page. At that time, content related Ads is best supplemental content for them.
Do not leave too much white space on your site. Only if you design the white space.
Try all kinds of ads in your blog. There must be one suitable for you.
I received an email from a guy who said he is a webmaster. He want to buy some text links on my site. It is another site, not this Blog.
The first question is Price?
He replied with some sample of this kind of ads he called it text link. Actually it is contextual link ads, which is a paragraph including 4 links.
And the price is over my imagination. He offered US$ 15 for lifetime each paragraph. There are 5. So Total is $75.
I have to decline it immediately with following message:
Sorry, I have to say the price is too low.
I normally charge $15 per link each month.
I think the price gap between us is so huge that he will quit. I am still wrong.
He replied and sent me a long analytic about the market and gave another offer. $100 for the deal of 5 years in total.
So I said no, he gave another offer. I said no again, he gave another one offer.
Finally, he offered US$ 125 for the deal of 3 years and there will be 5 links in each paragraph, and total 5 paragraph.
It is still only 125/5/5/3/12= 0.12 per link each month.
I ask for $15 per link each month. I don’t want to waste time.
I have to deny it very clearly. It may hurt his heart. 🙂
I think we should close this kind of discussion. You can not accept my minimum price. So it is end. Do not waste your time and mine.
The actual market price is not same as what he said. I sold many text links. The lowest price I sold before is $15. The latest price is $30 I sold this morning.
So I want to announce that purchase text link on my sites only when you have $20 per link per month offer.
The Google AdSense has its own login account previously. During last year, it ask some people use their Google Account to replace the regular AdSense account login information.
But it is not successful, if your Google Account has already associated with an AdWords, AdSense, or Books account.
Now this limitation is broken. Google can provide this merge smoothly, even you has the Google Account with AdWords.
I have this situation. I tried to change AdSense login by Google Account, which is associated with an AdWords account. So it failed.
This morning, when I login the AdSense by my current AdSense account, it promot me to merge it with a Google Account. I still remembered the trial before. I think I can try it again.
After four or five steps, the convert is successful. I can use the same Google Account to access Google AdSense, Google AdWords, Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Center, and most important Gmail, etc.
