UPDATE 3rd August 2008: This AdMob promotion looks to be a sham! I’ve been doing the math based on my experience of being a both an Advertiser and a Publisher using the AdMob Mobile Advertising Network.

Bottom line: I paid 63 cents per click to get my ad across the iPhone sites on the AdMob network, but I was only being paid as little as 3 cents per click for showing ads on my own iPhone webapps and sites.

So to give away £1million worth of advertising to iPhone pubishers, it’s only going to cost AdMob $48,000 if they’re only paying 3 cents per click, but charging 63 cents per click. As they did me.
