"After publishing a number of tech books, I launched askdavetaylor.com back in 2002 as a more efficient way of responding to questions emailed to me by readers. The site has grown enormously in the last 10 years – it now welcomes 1 million unique visitors a month, and answers queries on a very wide range of tech issues.
I signed up for AdSense in 2003, and within two months, the revenue from the program was enough to pay my hosting bill in full. By the third month, the revenue covered my monthly mortgage repayment! That's when I realized the website could be a viable business in itself.
With the money from AdSense, I was able to quit my job in 2003 and concentrate
entirely on the website. I'm still adding new articles every day, and have been happy to see AdSense reporting and targeting options become more sophisticated over the years. AdSense has ultimately allowed me to focus on the important things in life – like spending more time with my kids."
