WordAds- Review- might not be worth it

I have the domain Subtlewords.com for about two years now. I used to dominantly write poetry with the occasional article. My views were never much. As wordpress.com does not allow 3rd party ads, I applied for the newly launched Wordads. I never noticed that my request had been accepted until a few months after it. I never paid much attention to blogging actively until lately, hence did not care for the earnings. This year I decided to blog with conviction; I have been writing roughly an article every alternate day now.

My views in January were around 19,000. Now going by the general scenarios, I expected a decent Wordads income. Alas! That was not the case- 19,000 views, 4300 impression= $2.77. I had been using the twenty fourteen theme and had not chosen the ‘Show additional ads’ option in WordAds, thus only ads below each post is shown. This month (from 9th) I shifted to The Expound theme and also enabled the additional ads. I hope to get 20,000 views this month as well. I am hoping that if I do so, I’d get at least around $15 or I’d have to seriously contemplate about leaving wordpress.com. Now I could not find the views vs. impressions anywhere so have decided to upload mine. It shall give everyone some idea about the earnings. Also note my majority views come from India which is said to pay less! All the data is for ads without ‘Show additional ads’ option.

  1. The thing about the wordads is they pay more for impressions from Europe and USA. So, we Indian bloggers are not benefited much from it. Google adsense is best…
