AdSense Income Report - April and May

It is been sometimes that I have released the AdSense income report. It was two busy month with work and blogging. I have to share AdSense income report plus some exciting news. First I will go through the AdSense income.

April 2011 AdSense Income: AU$160
May 2011 AdSense Income: AU$137

You might have notice that there is sudden drop in May. Daily income was below $2.00 (Average ) from 22 May to 11 June. Luckily the daily income is back to normal. Couple of close reasons that I can think of .....

1. Receiving lots of invalid clicks
2. Changes done to the AdSense Ads Formats

Blogging update 

1. was graduated with AdSense. iilanka manage to pass the 100 daily visitors level and I applied some large square ads in popular pages. So, far manged to get more than $20 dollars from it.

2. was graduated with AdSense as well. I manage to bring more than 100 visitors to the blog within one month.

Hope to share more behind the sense stories about these blogs in the future posts.

Good Luck with your AdSense and Blogging

111 Click Only 172 Page Views

What you thought was right. Someone is trying to make lots of invalid click on one of my blogs that may result my AdSense account cancelled due to invalid clicks. It is really important to protect your Account account from fraud like this.

As soon as you find out something like this in your AdSense report make sure you report it to AdSense. Fill out the AdSense Invalid Clicks Contact Form and submit it. In any case you will at least have proof that it happened without your knowledge.
Stay tune to 100 dollars per day as I will post April AdSense report.

3 things to do before reinvesting the Adsense income

"You must consider your blog as a business". 

This is what most of the professional bloggers would advice. Even though it dose not make thousands of dollars or cover your living cost, you have to consider your blog as a proper business. Then, you will have a good picture of the current situation and long term and short terms goals. In another way, you will also understand the strengths and weaknesses of your blog. 

Question is how you going to treat your blog as a real business? As I am experimenting with AdSense I already focus on making money out my blogs. How about you? If yes, there is no reason why you should not take you blog as a business. 

First thing I did was to calculate the total earnings so far. Only with AdSense manage to make over $2000. Then it adds up the payments I received from domain parking, private ads, affiliate programs and freelance work (which I started recently). However, over the time I have spent some on busing domain names, web servers and various other services. So, I amused that there is $1000 as the opening balance. There is no point that trying to figure out all the expenses and income if you did not document them properly. It is a waste of time. Just get a value that you can afford and more forward with it. Remember to record each and every income and expense, just like a real business. 

Secondly, I calculate the average monthly income. If you gone through the previous monthly income reports you will notice that average income is $150.  

Lastly, you need to figure out ways to reinvest a certain portion of your monthly income. I don't recommend you to spend all the monthly income. Because, you need to plan for worst months as well. Specially if you commit to monthly plan even your income drops you have to make the payments. 

Here is the list of reinvestment ideas currently I am using and planning to use. 

1. Outsource writing blog posts  - 
2. Bought Article Spinning Software - 
3. Bought a Bluehost web server account - 
4. Bought couple of good domain names for future use - 

and I am planning to 

1. Buy link building software 
2. Hire someone for Search Engine Optimization (SEO). 

I really appreciate your thoughts and ideas about this.

March AdSense Earning Report: Quite but Good Month

First of all thank you for all the comments and sharing your thoughts and links with me. I really appreciate it and also, thanks for all the guest posts.

Like I mentioned before March was a bit busy month. Therefore, I could not really do major changes or updates to the blogs. However, it did not effect the AdSense income badly.

What would be the best posting frequency for AdSense? According to my blogs I have noticed that Page RPM increases when I post only couple of good posts per month. In most of the cases it goes over $1.00 per click. Some days end up earning more than $10.00. On the other hand, if I post only couple of post per month, gives me the opportunity to manage more blogs at any given month. As, result of that I manage to start two more blogs plus join one more blog with AdSense. I will update the impact on AdSense earning next month through new blogs.

March 2011 AdSense Income: AU$169.95

Again, it manages to pass the AU$150 mark. That is +$31.39 comparing to the last month.

It seems like in next couple of  months I need to figure out a way to make $10 average.  More than the income it is important to enjoy the challenge and experiment with AdSense.

Good Luck with your AdSense journey.

Intext Advertising Shows How Advertisers Target Your Content

Infolinks will help you understand Adsense Better
Do you know Infolinks its an intext advertising script that you can use on your site. One of the Things about Infolinks is that you can use it alongside Adsense as a second Income source.

Many website owners do not want intext advertising to be displayed inside their content but if you do not mind using such advertising methods you can give infolinks a try.

One of the things I noticed when I started using intext advertisng on my blog was the words that were highlighted. These were words like Get Cheaper Pay Per Click Keywords. Why were words like that being highlighted with Infolinks well the reason is simple words like
Advertising and Payments Attract Attention from Advertisers and Customers.

So what has Infolinks Got to Do with all this well the reason is quite simple if your content is not showing highlighted keywords in infolinks then you are doing something wrong with the Words you are using in your Post and Article content. If these words do not appeal to advertisers then advertisers will not pay large amounts of money for clicks on those advertisments.

This Goes for all contextual Advertising Programs Like Chitika and 7search.

January and February 2011 Income Report

As I was busy with work and my three weeks holiday I could not post the monthly income report for February. Therefore I though of posting both income reports together share bit of holiday experience and blogging.

It was great 3 weeks holiday in Sri Lanka and Singapore and had a pretty relaxing time. If you looking for a relaxing getaway I would highly recommend you to visit Sri Lanka. You can enjoy the tropical weather with nice beaches and hotels. Also, Marina Bay Sand (Singapore) is a pretty awesome hotel that you can experience the infinite pool in 57th floor and the Sky-deck. Also, you can spend time shopping and roam around the building complex.

Let's move to the monthly reports.

January  - AU$157.30 
February - AU$138.56 

So, without any major AdSense optimizing change or daily blog post updates the main website generated  more than AU$150.00. Then there is a decline in month February. One good reason is that February is missing 2 days and I did not spend much time updating or brining traffic to the blog.

Will be back soon with more updated and AdSense stories.

Happy New Year and December AdSense Revenue Report

First of all I wish you a happy new year and wish you all the best for a fantastic 2011. Thanks you very much for the support over the past year and I really appreciate it. In terms of AdSense it was a exciting year and I really have some good news to share with you.

AdSense Revenue Report 

Let's move to the December AdSense Revenue Report. December was the best month so far. In December total estimated earning recorded as AU$176.48. That was a nice Christmas and New Year present. Finally, I manage to exceed AU$150.00. Comparing to the November it is  +AU$53.88.

December  - AU$ 176.48
November - AU$  122.60
Difference - + AU$ 53.88

Comparing the number of visitors and number of clicks received for the ads Page eCPM played the major role. As it was the holiday season, advertisers increase the bid to gain more sales. It will be challenge to continue the same level of income in the next couple of months.

Plans for the Year 2011

Finally, I bought a web server account from one of the best shared web server provider, Bluehost. It only cost me $6.95 per month. I am trying to fully utilized the unlimited bandwidth, storage space, email accounts. Also, they provide you a facility to create any number websites. It is the ideal web hosting for me to start couple of  new websites in different niches. Ideally I will be able to experiment AdSense performance with different niches as well as multiply the AdSense revenue. During the year 2010, I was totally concentrating on one blog with AdSense ads. I was able to achieve many goals in terms of traffic and AdSense revenue.

I already started a social network site for Sri Lanka using buddypress and start getting more than 100 hits per day after couple of days and over 1300 facebook fans. However, I am still waiting to monetize the project. Like I mentioned in previous posts first required to maintain healthy traffic to the website. I used facebook advertising to increase the facebook fans. As I am trying to build a network I chose facebook than AdWords.
In Adwords I have to pay for each click and once they left the site, that would be the end.

I am wishing you all the best and once again thank you so much for visiting my blog and your support.  If you need any help setting up the web server accounts or wordpress blogs I can definitely help you on that. Do not forget to subscribe for AdSense updates. I will share all the AdSense tricks tips and hacks that I will be using.
