My story when I was click bombed for the first time

Click Bomb – is a term used to describe massive bot or user generated ad clicks on one website.

Click Bombs are there to crush your brand new website, there are evil people out there who can bomb you.

But my case was made by friend, he tried to make me some money since he was in Norway, and I was in Lithuania, I had the idea I can make money from a blog here in Lithuania despite the fact that no Lithuanian blogger makes money from a blog.

So the facts were against me.

I was young to blogging, had no experience with websites and with writing. I just wrote what was on my mind and expected people to come and visit my website, this was somewhere in 2012. 6 years ago, when I had some luck I made a decision to make my blog and it was a fucking failure…

My online friend came to my blog and pressed the ad like 10 or 20 times, it sure was a small click bomb, but what I learned from that experience is that when you have zero traffic you won’t bank a lot of money.

As a new blogger, your duty is to build a foundation and market yourself.

Besides having a Google Ad, will make you somewhat 5$ from 1000 visits, I bet there are better ways to monetize your web traffic. If you get 1000 visits a day, you don’t even imagine how popular you are.

1000 isn’t a lot as a number, but if you think about it, it’s 1000 people giving you some time.
