I’ve been putting Google Adsense Ads on Lee.org since 2008. Initially, it earned about $300/year. Now it’s down to about $100/year. The vast majority of my web traffic is from random passersby. Since I don’t want to bother my friends with ads, I’ve changed it so that the most recent 3 months of content are free of ads. About 1 in 1000 page views generates a click on an ad, each is worth $0.10-$0.30 to me.
I make the 3 month delay happen with WP Super Cache and the no adverts for friends plugin. I hand modified a line in friendsadverts.php to change it from the default 15 days to 90 days.
if( get_post_time() < date( ‘U’ ) – 7776000 )
7776000 is 90 days in seconds.

I just installed WPBook in a vain (as in “in vain”) effort to allow my Facebook friends to continue to read my blog.
My blog posts are now forwarded to my Facebook Wall.
I used Wordbook for about a year but it recently broke :-(. I’m sure the Facebook people don’t like this functionality because it sucks people away from their one-website-internet plan. So we’ll see how long WPBook lasts!
In the continuing effort to fight comment spam, I installed the Bad Behavior plugin on the blog. If this accidentally stops your legitimate comment, please email me at Lee at Lee dat org.
update 4-11-11: I removed Bad Behavior a while back. See the comments
Infinite Scroll looks like a fun plugin. It almost worked perfectly right out of the box (see my note about WP-FancyZoom). I found it on the Balsaman blog.
Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and the next page should load up automatically. :-)
Please tell me what you think of this change!
