    I'm aware of adsense, and I sometimes check out the advertisement. Not very often though..

    I do click on those ads on WHT I sometimes find some good deals via them.

    Not really.

    Depends where I'm at and how appealing the ad is if I was to click on it. I might of clicked on Adsense ads about 5 times over the past 10 years.

    This isn't the norm though. I have alot of web sites in my portfolio that implement Adsense and some of the good ones get a solid 15% CTR daily. If you have the right traffic and market, you can make some pretty good $ out of Adsense.

    Adsense over the years has allowed me to quit my full time job & build/pay deposit on my own house.

    LOL, well i think once you are new or beginner, you click on ads quite a lot and sometimes you know you re clickin and sometimes you have no idea those were the ads, it happened to me quite a lot.

    Well good to know that you are actually earning from adsense! But I think real life job is more important than earning from Adsense?

    Yes, I often click on ads - I do not care if they are adsense, adbrite, facebook, banners etc. If there is something that interests me, I visit it.

    But, if I have already clicked an ad, and if I want to visit the site again - I am not clicking it again, I copy and paste the url, so they are not charged.

    When Adsense begins to overtake what you earn from a "full time job" and paid employer, you will think differently. You need to focus on what brings you the most income.

    Is Google Adsense income reliable some may ask? I took the leap a few years ago and haven't looked back. I made the decision to focus full time on my Adsense revenue after solid sustainable earnings for many years, before I took the leap.

    Developing quality web sites that earn revenue from contextual advertising (eg: Adsense) is a full time job & business.

    I generally ignore them. Google became of the best because of it's organic results so I tend to check those first. BTW, if I am looking for something technical, I almost never click on Microsoft's technet articles. They suck. I always find much better examples, answers, and workarounds on people blogs.

    I ignore them, but if I come across interesting and catchy ones or just interesting, I could click on them.

    I'm all for them, UNLESS the website screams "I'm here to server Adsense ads". Those types of sites are horrific and I just click back. Of all the websites I visit, I'm VERY aware of the ads.
