AdWords to AdSense – I ran a brief test …

leave a comment »

AdWords to AdSense

I ran a brief test – which is in no way representative – and saw that with the most basic test page using an AdWords funnel I can make a loss of 77%. It does show for me that in this statistically irrelevant test 23% of the expected 100% loss was reduced by the 2 people who clicked on an advert – were likely to click on another advert.

The reason it is probably statistically irrelevant is that of the 28k impressions there were merely 16 clicks. Still it was fun to see that even a simple site will not run at 100% loss.

Crunching the numbers further I discovered the loss was even less, at 71.43% which means 28.57%.

Proof of Concept: Shopper App

leave a comment »

I often get people ask me to develop phone applications based on an idea and with little other input besides the idea itself. I usually ask them to write me a proposal and send that to me, knowing that most people will procrastinate – as it turns a fun idea into work – I rarely hear anything back. Not so in this case, a friend brainstormed a shopping application and we made the following rough mock ups using OmniGraffle.

Create Documents from GMail Conversations #blogging

leave a comment »

Using GMail daily I hadn’t noticed the item Create a document in the menu before yesterday, I decided to try it out and I really like it. The function allow you to turn an entire conversation into a document which is stored into Google Docs with the push of a button.

GMail menu

The quoted text contains all the included markup, altough it doesn’t include the sender details, it removes all the quoted text it recognizes. What it doesn’t do is truncate the text below the “sig dashes” (“signature cut line”, “sig-marker”, or “sig separator”), which is what I expected.

I create many post based on conversations I see on mailing lists, or other place. This feature makes it easier to collect all the text of the conversation, as the sender is not included it is necessary to through source text to attribute the quotes to the correct person.

Nice feature!
