Rants and Musings of a Sysadmin

Goodbye Google Adsense

A couple years ago (...I think...) for shits and giggles I set up a Google Adsense account.

I tried to make it as unobtrusive as possible and had the ads show up at the very bottom of the page.  No side bars. Not popups about 'Hey, you have adblock on!' or the like.

In that time I have racked up about $10 bucks worth of ad revenue that I'm aware of.  However, I never connected it to a wallet or whatever the hell the term is in Adsense, so I never cashed out.

This week I decided to delete the account, but according to the robots at Google my blog was deemed to be 'Scraped content'.
