I'm Almost a Billionaire!

Ok, as both of my regular readers have probably noticed, I recently started featuring a couple of small ads on my blog. I did this as a starting point for my billion-dollar blogging enterprise (don't worry, it'll happen). Now, I know nothing about SEO (search engine optimization) or anything else that I should know about when wanting to make a billion dollars blogging, but I have to say I'm more than a little taken aback by some of the ads that google is displaying on my site.

Some are very pertinent: CafeMoms, Colic Calm, and Gerber Baby food are all appropriately placed on my site. However, there are a few ads that I look at and just have to stratch my head:

Be Kind to Your Behind bathroom sprayer (ad was complete with two claymation figures sitting on the toilet).

Grand Chase anime something-or-other.

"This is not a dog, so don't train her like one. To learn how to live with children, click here." Photo of a little girl sitting in a doghouse. As if this isn't funny enough, this ad is usually featured in my "We Cuss at our Baby" post.

Gabriel Method of losing weight (how did they know I needed this???).

Pre-clinical AMD tox research (no clue what that means).

Countless singles dating sites (including a single Muslim marriage service-something I'm sure all my readers will use).

"Is your kid cute" beauty contest, featuring a young girl picking her nose (I guess because they say they are "picking" winners soon, or something like that).

Some Zombie movie that I've never heard of (this one actually makes sense, because it was next to my Zombie Chicken award post).

So, anyways, after looking at my ad account, I find that I have only $999,999,999.72 left to go in my billion dollar blogging enterprise. ALMOST THERE- I CAN'T WAIT!

Is that the same as adsense? I wondered how those ads worked.
