For those who are intrigued by adverts promising $$$$$$$’s from ‘working at home’ running websites displaying ‘pay-per-click’ advertising might be interested to learn that Eastleigh News has earned just £588 in PPC earnings from over three quarter of million page views – nowhere near enough to cover its current annual hosting costs.
The site is currently averaging around 36,000 monthly page views – this always spikes around election time and during the by-election campaign hit 82,000 monthly page views.
