I just got my first Adsense check for the last week of June- it was a little over $100. The $ amount per click seems to have decreased slightly this month, but I'm still very pleased.
It's also lots of fun to see what ads show up on which pages- I'm amazed at the detail level of the ads served. :learn:

Sure, there are those who'd say that adwords may even take a sale away from us, but our initial findings for the domain in question are that sales have remained more or less as predicted. We ensure that ad placement is unobtrusive and is only seen after the users have had the chance to 'scan' the key page sales drivers.
As the adsense TOS prevent me from talking specifics, Ill just say that just under 98% of people do not see a need to click the ads, which tells us that we are doing something right.
Win win in my book - go adsense!

If you want your visitors to click on your AdSense Ads, build content that is boring. Make it soooo boring that visitors will click just anything that would take them out of your site Howz that? Short-term effective strategy

I've been really impressed with the context of the ads so far. Glad to hear it's working for others too! I certainly like the idea of MAKING money from Google rather than SPENDING it.

One of the most humourous examples I have seen of the whole thing going wrong:
"The technology is not yet foolproof. The online edition of The New York Post, which is owned by News Corp., ran an article last month about a killing in which the victim's body parts were packed in a suitcase, and Google served up an ad for a luggage dealer."

One change that Google do deserve a pat on the back for is the facility to change the colour of the ads to suit the colour scheme of your site.
