“We believe it’s important to put our money where our principles are” said Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google.

What we don’t know is what Google intends to do exactly with this Spectrum..

Om Malik points out a interesting comment : “So Google Will Bid For Spectrum. Will It Play To Win?

So is a blog a good way for making money ?

- YES if you are a High-Traffic weblog or a Top Blogger.
- NO if you spend a lot of time blogging and you make less than 100$ per month.

Do your maths.

Personally I love Blogging, it’s a Lifestyle.

Safe Sex Passport for safe dating without STD

Safe Sex Passport

A Florida based company is launching the very first Safe Sex Passport that guarantees you that the person you meet online has no sexually transmitted disease (STD) like HIV, genital herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis.

The service is for people who are registered on dating websites.

To get your card you go to an affiliate laboratory and take the tests. Your results are sent by the lab to Safe Sex Passport (SSP) that gives you your passport.

“If you want to meet someone online, they can call a phone number and get the test results and test date for you, plus identification information so that they know for sure that you are really the person who was tested. In the old days, you had to take someone’s word for it when they said they had been tested and were in the clear. Now you can ask for proof.”

Safe Sex Passport has already 15 000 registered users and many dating websites expressed an interest in the service.

Official Launch: December 1. European launch: first quarter 2008.

A very lucrative business for SSP : it will cost you $ 300 for 6 months ($ 274 for renewals) !

At this costs, singles have to plan a special “dating” Budget.

With this Sex Card, are people going to get “crazy” or more responsibles ? Both I think :-)

See the SSP Corporate Kit (PDF)

Phototrade make money

And you start making money with your photos by CPM and Adsense sharing revenue.

You can also sell your photos: (you set the price)

See video of Phototrade at Blogworld Expo, by Shoemoney:

Now it’s probably a good way to get paid for your photos when I see the number of visits I get from Google on my pics.

We’ll see in the future how Phototrade perform.

The negative aspect is that we are getting dependant from this kind of service as a free webhosting. What will happen if they close ??

$132 994 from Adsense in 1 month

Blogger and Webmaster Jeremy Schoemaker aka “Shoemoney” answered questions on his blog about the famous picture where he is holding a $ 132 994.97 Google Adsense Check.

Check is real even if it’s hard to believe (click to enlarge) :

Shoemoney Adsense Check

It was for the month August 2005 and we can see the full month report from AdSense (he has permission from Google to display CTR and eCPM rates) : (click to enlarge)

August 2005 Shoemoney Adsense

- revenues were made on his website Nextpimp.com (Wallpapers and Free Ringtones)

- it’s 100% user generated content (494 000 members)

- at the time his expenses were 1 server @ 299$ per month for hosting, so it’s at least 130k profit.

- none of traffic was PPC (Pay Per Click) but was 70% from direct access, 15% from search engines and 15% from referrals

- stats : 75 000 uniques visitors per day

- to the question Do you think its possible to still earn that kind of revenue? (most often asked question), Jeremy answers : YES.

- Shoemoney never tried to make any money the first 1.5 years it was running. He just concentrated on providing a good service. About 2 years after he started the site he started to do good revenue from AdSense

Insane, no ?! these nice pics make me living again… even if people like “Shoemoney” are not a lot in this world…

And see, there is more to come: Shoemoney says that Adsense earnings only count for 5% of his total revenue on his websites.

In october Shoemoney’s blog gave him $ 30 000 in direct sales (advertising logos, banners).

In march 2007 he earned $ 709 626.81 as an affiliate of Commission Junction.

Shoemoney Commission Junction

Back to Adsense Check, when I look on comments in the post, Shoemoney says:

“I have a good friend that was doing about 2M per month.. so that would be about 65k per day so yes 100k every few days for sure is possible”

The guy who is speaking about must be Marcus from Plentyoffish.com (2 millions unique visitors per day!)

So I am going to bed now and I will put Shoemoney’s Adsense Check just above my bed.. may be it will bring me success…
