A few weeks ago I started using Google AdSense Page-level ads on one of my niche blogs. The ads were running for two weeks and just got 2 clicks resulting in €0,47 AdSense revenue. The average of clicks a day is around 20 now, so the CTR is really low for these Page-level ads. I decided to quite AdSense Page-level ads for now.
While reading my older post about using AdSense Page-level ads I state that the site is getting 100 uniques a day. Well, things has changed in last couple of weeks. The site was getting up to 400 uniques a day last week. I was ranking on #3 in google.nl for one of the keywords I was aiming for. A great success and the site was bringing in some extra AdSense money. But, this success didn’t last long. Just a few days ago Google put me back at #8… Bye bye traffic. The site is back at 100 uniques a day now.
My site was on #3 for about 1 week and I saw the potential of this rank. I am not sure why I am put back at #8 after one week. I even got one very related strong backlink from quite a big site. At least I know the potential of this rank and I will work to get it back. I did a due diligence on the number 1 and 2 and they don’t seem that strong. The backlinks they have are not super related and not from very high profile websites. I think I can beat them but it will take some time.
Google AdSense revenue
The AdSense revenue for June is setting a new record again. When I got that #3 position for my niche site the average AdSense revenue was around €5,- a day. Unfortunately the site is now at #8 and bringing in €1 or €2 a day. If I am able to push the site to the number 1 position, I guess the AdSense revenue will be around €10,- a day.
