    Posted by Jonathan on December 19th, 2007 (All posts by )

    I removed the Google ads and WordPress search window and substituted Google and Amazon search windows at the top of the blog. The Google ads generated a trickle of revenue but otherwise didn’t do much for the blog. The new Google search window works better for searching the blog than did the one from WordPress, and lets you search the Web too. And we all use Amazon. I hope that these new features improve the blog, and if you use them I will make a few bucks which will help to keep me off the streets.

      If I do my Amazon purchases through this window does that somehow cause you to get money?

    2. Jonathan Says:

      Yes, Amazon kicks back 4-6% of your purchase as a referral fee.

    3. Tyouth Says:

      Um, Jon exactly how do you make your money on “the streets”?

      Seriously, 4 to 6%? That’s a very good thing. And, if you’re not joshing us, I can’t see an Amazon or Google portal.

    4. Tyouth Says:

      Opps, I do have a google search window!

    5. Jonathan Says:

      Tyouth, it’s not what you think! I am merely selling artistic postcards to the tourists!

      I buy a lot of music and books on Amazon (including the most important band in the world, Electric Six – a tiny shill there) and will be sure to buy through the site forever more.

      Ah, if I knew it a week ago, I’d order my baking sheet set through you!

    9. JoseAngel de Monterrey Says:

      I will certainly buy here the next time I order anything from Amazon.

      And from what I understand, I would also help to search for stuff from the Google search in the site also.

      Thanks to all.
