Google AdSense income June

June flew by. The month went fast and I got busy with a lot of things online. A few months ago I mentioned I was working on an instagram project. I closed the entire project due to a legal notice from Instagram. I got this mail with a potential fine of $100,000 if I continued with the site. I checked the mail and it looks genuine… I had this exact match domain (with the name Instagram) with a nice search volume. Most of the times these big companies don’t bother, but this time they did. I just closed the site and lesson learned 😉

AdSense income

Last month I broke a record with my €51,95 but it was not yet enough to get a monthly payout. I had set this goal to reach €100,- a month by April and failed miserably. June got me there! Yes I made a good amount in June, more than expected. June AdSense income;

€148,76

The month looks extremely good with almost 3x as much as May. But something happened. I got a really top ranking for just one week in June. I made it to position 2 in google for a keyword with a decent volume. I got really excited but after one week the site went back to number eight. AdSense shot as high as €9,- for a few days and after the week of the high ranking it went back to €2,- / €3,- daily.

Potential

The top 3 ranking made me see the potential. It gives me new motivation to work on the site and get it back to the top 3. I am also planning some new sites. This month will be a hard one to break. I guess the AdSense income for July will be a bit lower…

I will keep you guys updated!

AdSense Page-level ads review

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.

Google Rankings

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.

Potential

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.

Google AdSense Income May

June is here! This means I got an income report to share with you. In April I made a bit of €20,- which was a great improvement of the month before (March). The Google AdSense income from May were even better. I was aiming to at least €30,- but it got much better then that!

Google AdSense May Income;

€51,95

Yes, thats right. After the €20,- month, income shot to over €50,- in May. I am happy with the growth last month. One of my sites that was picking up rankings did very well. It made 28,76 in May alone and I am not yet into top 5 in Google for my main keyword.

Competition

I am focussing on the site that is making me the most money on AdSense right now. I found out one guy owns the top 3 sites in google for the main keyword I am trying to rank for. So the top traffic is pretty much controlled by 1 guy. It is not the only site I am working on though. This site made about half of May’s income, so I will keep working on my other sites as well.

More updates are coming soon

Motivation Killer

First two days of the new month have passed. I worked quite a few hours the last weekend of January to start the new month strong. Till now I only made €0.02 on Google AdSense which is really killing my motivation to work on my content sites. It got me thinking if I’m heading into the right direction… Maybe I should ditch Google AdSense and go with affiliate marketing? Not sure what to do… Maybe I am pulling that dead horse I was talking about in my last post..

While thinking about affiliate marketing and how to get into it I checked a couple of affiliate marketing blogs. All these guys are killing it with a few thousand profit a month (some way over that). It all looks so easy but it is definitely not! I got this great domain for a sneaker affiliate shop… I bought it for way too much money last year when I had a short rush of getting back at the make money online niche. Well, I got new motivation and I guess these kind of set backs are part of the game. Got to make it through this…

Enough said, back to the drawing table and I am not sure what to do yet with the creditcard site… The goal of making €100 a month on Google AdSense looks further away than ever… The actual number of earnings on Google AdSense in January; €5,00. *depressing*

Testing Google AdSense

Last week I decided to put up some Google AdSense ads on the neglected creditcard site I started 2 years ago. In the past I have been earning a decent amount with Google AdSense. Some months were over €500,- which is a nice extra. But I am starting at zero again. The ads are online for a little over a week now and in the image below you see the results of the last 7 days.

AdSense last 7 days

A bit over €1,50 in the last 7 days. Makes an average of €6,- a month. Not something to brag about… As I am back with new motivation and putting in hours again to create new content and links I expect the earnings to climb.

Google AdSense Goal

I just came up with a new goal of earning €100,- monthly with Google AdSense in the month of April. That gives me a full two months to do whatever it takes to make that €100,- in April just on Google AdSense. After this I will set a new goal, but lets first see if I can make it to this one!

If any of you is starting with Google AdSense and has some questions, please ask me in the comments and I will be happy trying to help you out.
