Ad(Non)Sense

Buzz Marketing with Blogs discusses Google’s AdSense programme. Am surprised at this: 

I was all set to tell you about Fred Wilson, a venture capitalist in New York who just publicly posted his exact Google AdSense revenue figures for the year.  He made $500, he says, and he’s got charts to back it up!

This is notable not because for the grand total, but rather because Google’s AdSense Terms of Service prohibit any discussion of click through rates or payments—a stance that has long aggravated many naturally chatty bloggers.

How the hell did he manage to make that much? I have some AdSense adverts over at Palimpsest and have so far managed to make about 20p.
