Your AdSense application has been approved

Received a note today from the folks at Google:

Congratulations! Your AdSense application has been approved!

STEP 1: Activate your account.

STEP 2: Paste AdSense code into your web pages. Just follow the instructions on the 'Ad layout code'. Google ads will begin running on your pages within minutes.

STEP 3: See the results. You can check your earnings at any time. Note: you might not maximize earnings if your site contains any of the following:

robots.txt
frames
forms and dynamic content
excessive images
login and password requirements

I tried to make the ads un-invasive as possible. A snippet of Javascript code needs to be pasted code into every web page (that I want to run ads on). With thousands of pages, it's tedious work.

Google lets me select the style/format. I picked the banner (468x60) and put it at the top of the page, where the search feature used to be. Moved the search feature down to the bottom. Google picks the ads. Looks like they change with each refresh. Interesting to see which ads they think will work. At least they don't flicker. I hate animated ads (annoying, distracting).

They make no money unless clicked on. The article I read last week said: you'd be surprised how many people click the ads. Hopefully they'll make enough to cover hosting costs.

Now I have to go back & edit the About Radified page to remove the part where I brag about not selling out. =/ Umm, crow. Yummy.
