My First Google Payment

| 24 October 2007 | 6 Comments

Last week, when I logged-in to my Google account to setup a new AdSense script for my site, I was surprised to read a message in the overview page that my “payments is being onhold” and I was asked to register a payment method in order to get paid.  Caught in disbelief, I checked how much did I earn.   Then I was surprised to see $2.30 as payments being on hold.  Unbelievable to me!   I followed a link that led me to choose a payment method.  Luckily, Sweden is one of those listed countries they support Electronic Fund Transfer so I didn’t have to sign-up for payment by check and then wait a couple of days before it gets into my hands.

After I registered my bank account, a message told me that they were going to do a test deposit, which means they would deposit a small amount and I had to check my bank account within 4-10 days so that I could verify afterwards if I got it or not.  I could barely wait ten days so I checked my bank account after four days.  And presto! I got the Google Adsense Payment of 7,16 sek.  I was sooo glad I forgot to verify the amount.  But when I woke up the next day, I remembered the message and rushed to my computer station and performed the necessary action.

It was just a small amount but the joy of earning it is unbelievably surprising.  I started putting up Google Adsense two years ago.  But the intention was not to earn but to add some contents to my site.  Besides, I did not put up those 700+ pixel wide banners so how could I expect a payment. I remember how I usually click some Google ads that interest me when I am visiting some sites, and the value it generates to the site’s owner. So now I know it’s not impossible to earn from Google Adsense.  It’s a good compensation for computer nerds who can spend sitting in front of the computer the whole day, like me 😀
