Belated Yuletide Greetings from Google

Despite all that bad press Google has been getting in the past couple of months, they still never fail to douse the heated discussions with a warm Christmas greetings. And here’s what I got.

During last Christmas season, several high-power probloggers have revealed that Google sent them a nice cardboard-thin USB drive. Well, I didn’t get one. Except this:

Google Christmas Card


I got a similar greeting card last year.

XMas Card

Maybe I need to be in their UPS Club to get those premium gifts. In any case, this may be the last greeting card I’ll get from them. I’m slowly moving out from AdSense and into direct ads and other alternatives.

Anybody else got a greeting card from them?

    Interesting, Abe! I’m seeing more Pinoy bloggers slowly remove AdSense from some of their sites. I wonder if this is a trend?

    Save that card from Google. A bit of Pinoy internet history.

  3. I wish to receive that Christmas card even in summer. hehehehe. Moving away from Adsense is surely a bold move for a publisher especially that most publishers now depend on Adsense for earnings.

  7. I received a postcard to verify my identity so that I can get my Adsense earnings for the very first time. No Holday card though.

    For people who are getting good traffic, they can wean themselves from Google and just take sponsors and link Ads when they have been punished by the GOOG gods with a low PR.

  10. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
