We all know that we have to reach that 100$ earning to receive our first check. In the banking world, that is called a "float" and according to some experts $100 minimum earnings float is HUGE and guess where does all that money goes - in google's pockets.
Most of the sites that starts never reach that 100$ mark. Millions and millions of sites gets stuck at 60-70% only. If you believe the figures, google is getting about 3.5% of its revenue from this practice, it doesn't sound much, is it? Well with number of blogs starting every day this figure adds up to $267 million in the first quarter of this year and if same trend follows then google is going to earn $1.068 billion in one year.
But here is the juice. If you happened to read the fine prints of google adsense TOS then you can find the part where google talks about sending your money in 12-13 weeks time IF you terminate your google adsense account and inform them with an email at email@example.com. There is a small catch here too, your earning should be more then 10$ for this to work. But that threshold is fairly achievable
