How long will this last?

So Google approved me (for Zentastic anyway, perhaps the least “offensive” of my journals) for AdSense. I wasn't sure if my blog was too “pornographic” for them but I guess they reviewed it and decided the content was acceptable. Either that or it's a scam, and they'll yank my account a la PayPal[sucks] right before owing a payment.

I was actually thinking that Google must make an absolute fortune off of unclaimed money. I think they don't pay you until you make $50, which for most small blogs probably takes quite a long time — months if not years in many cases. As such, I'd wager that a significant percentage of small bloggers quit the program before being paid, and my best guess says that Google is probably netting a couple million extra a year for this… to say nothing of the interest that the money collects until a payment point is hit.

That said, if their software can't figure out how to put less lame-ass ads in place, I'm gonna dump it myself. Well, in either case, I think I'm allowed to tell you how much I make, so I'll post about that as a point of trivia (although, oh crap, I just clicked on one of my own ads because it looked interesting, so maybe they'll cancel me for that).

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
