Google Adsense Gift Picture

Posted By Darren Rowse 15th of December 2005 Adsense 0 Comments


Thanks to Grant for emailing me a picture of the AdSense Christmas Gift for some publishers. (Click to enlarge). It is a:

  • carrying case with embossed google logo. zipper closure
  • wireless mini mouse, with scroll wheel
  • usb charger for mouse with retractable cord
  • usb 4 port hub
  • usb gooseneck led light
  • 128mb usb flash drive with wrist strap
  • headset with retractable cord. has two plugs (one for mic and one for earbud) so it is for a computer, not a mobile phone.

  • Damn, so close with the google branded mp3/podcast player!

    Looks pretty funky though, so I got that bit right.

  • I doubt that I will see anything of the sort.

    Does anyone know what kind of earnings do you have to have to get this schwag?

  • Weirdly, I got both this AND a New Years card from Google.

    Even stranger, though, is that at least in my gift package, there was no note of any sort… so I had no idea which division of Google I had gotten the gift from (AdWords? AdSense? Urchin, since I scored ’em a contract when they were charging $?)

    It’s such a thoughtful and cool gift, indeed, but it would have been even that much nicer to see a small typed and (photocopily) signed note from the AdSense team thanking us for our contributions… if only so we’d know where it came from! :)

    Oh, and I don’t necessarily think the gift is sent out based purely on earnings. Mine have been *quite* modest, and though I recently wrote a love/re-commitment letter to AdSense, I’m guessing that I got the gift due to being with AdSense practically since the start :)

  • Er, the love/re-commitment letter is here: :D

  • Tom

    I got my kit, awesome.

    I do agree with Adam, if I had not seen this post, I would have had no idea why I got this in the mail. I could have assumed, but with no note in the box, I never would have known for sure.

  • Addendum:
    I just learned that the gift I got was from my ADWORDS rep after all, not AdSense. So I guess it’s a general-purpose gift :)

    does anyone know what this kit is worth…i have a bet in my office

  • jon

    Sara, on the customs slip [I’m in Canada] it had the value at $43.16 and the Country of Manufacture as China, People’s Republic of.

  • I got a simplified version –
    The mouse is not wireless, the flash drive is 64MB, no headset…
    Still very cute :-)

    I got 2 cards (1 for Adwords & 1 for Adsense?) and no indication from which the gift was…
