Should I sign up for Google Ads now with just one post or wait?
It's best to have an established presence and some credible traffic history before you try to sign up with AdSense.
If you do not have an adsense account there is no point in signing up until you have a site they will approve and can show some traffic. If you sign up too early then you will get rejected and have to reapply... thus wasting your time.
There is not one general rule of thumb as to how much traffic is enough to sign up. But there is little point in having an account with low traffic because you will only make pennies.
The average webmaster makes $50 a month with Adsense. The average clickthrough is 1-2%.
So if you are new and only have 100 impressions a day on average you may get 1 or 2 clicks that pay a few pennies each.
If you have a lot of high quality traffic your payout goes up. Depends on niche as well.
But Google will determine what is high quality and what is not. And new accounts need to be "seasoned". So get some good traffic then sign up as soon as you have it.

First off, I reached 1/2 of my payout today, so that is very exciting! Thank you all for the advice so far, but I am in need of more. I am a little concerned, because I earned from two clicks this morning from a very...

Is it better to earn incrementaly, 40 cents a day, or turn off the HP ads and enter the Adsense lottery, where you might get a zero or a $5 click?One is more sensible and the other more exciting, methinks! ;-)
