How do I get paid?

Hello Deerfield is supported by Google Adsense advertising. When readers click on the ads, Google pays a commission ranging from a few cents to several dollars. That commission will be shared between you and howtofamily in the following manner:

  • You get 100% of the Google advertising revenue generated by your posts. This means you keep all the Google ad revenue from your permalink page and your personal home page.
  • We make money from the advertising on community pages that doesn't belong to any single blogger (i.e. non-permalink pages such as the general home page and news pages ).

Google Adsense is only the first step in our overall monetizing campaign. We are currently working on selling text link and site-wide ads. For site-wide ads, the revenue will be shared between you and Hello Deerfield based on how much traffic you bring in. For example, if your posts account for 20% of our traffic, you get 20% of the site-wide advertising revenue.
