December 2012 Squidoo Payout

The last payday of the year came quite early, and I received a nice $1,059 payment to my PayPal account. Of course I hope this trend continues into the next year as well.

Speaking of which, the ad pool payouts for this December were simply amazing:

Ad pool:

Tier 1: $61.28
Tier 2: $10.42
Tier 3: $0.52

In-Text Ads:

Tier 1: $15.54
Tier 2: $2.64
Tier 3: $0.13

New in Squidoo this month is the "Responsive" layout. There still are some bugs to be fixed, but overall the new layout doesn't look that bad once you get used to it. It is a whole lot wider though (I think up to 979px on desktop?) so lenses with lots of images might not look very good.

For example, on some of my lenses I use thumbnail pictures, which on the previous fixed-width layout were arranged into neat 6 x 2 "galleries". Now that the page is wider, I'd have to add more pictures to get 2 equal rows of thumbnails. Thing is, I'm not sure if I should do it because apparently everyone will be seeing a  different-width page.
