Mission for Month of August : Earn $2,000 from Adsense

Saturday, August 8, 2009

This week, the traffic for my blogs and my wife's is not as good as in the past months because this week I was so busy that I was not able to post as often as I should. I was very busy with office work, and during the nights I was also busy building newer "niche" blogs that I hope to monitize in a few months time. But I was quite surprised that our Adsense income is still going strong; for the first week of August, we earned $603.26 and averaged $75 per day. The posts we made during the last week of July continue to bring in good traffic and good steady income. I also noticed that despite the smaller traffic now, our ads' CTR continue to increase. We did not change the position of our ads but we changed the way we select the keywords to optimize; I guess this also contributes in the higher CTR. Some may not see the connection there, but keywords really matter not only in traffic but in how visitors behave. Let me rephrase that, the keywords we optimize really affects the kind of visitors we get.

Now, I have given myself and my wife a mission for the month of August: earn $2,000 from Adsense alone. That's a challenge I set for my self and my wife. I believe that we can make it. Last month I posted about dreaming of breaking into the realm of $1,000 a month with Adsense and we got past that, we earned $1,202 in the month of July. We are very positive about making it again--breaking into another realm of Adsense income.

Wow, that is fantastic, I battle to get to R200-00 per month. Will see if I can change my keywords, maybe it will improve my income. How many visits do you get in one month more or less if I may ask Pastilan?
Btw, time for you to come check out the legs again.

@Calvin thanks :)

@MommyElvz I am starting a new blog which will focus on sharing the little that I know about SEO and earning with Adsense :)

@Colin this income is from four blogs combined, last month, the combined visits in the four blogs we have is around 420,000 unique visitors, 90% of which came via the search engines.

@Berry it should always be white hat, never attempt black hat or grey hat, just do it the clean way.

@Dexter Thanks

Ang galing mo naman! It looks like a technology blog is very lucrative ha? How do you target your keywords?

@Sammy Feliciano chat tayo one of these days Bro, turo ko sa iyo mga bagay bagay na makakatulong sa iyo :)

@Tyrone No, technology blogs are not that lucrative (at least tech blogs like this one), try news aggregation blogs and you'll see good income, the bulk of my income comes from news.

Tyrone, mukhang nakita kiat sa TKA forum, andun ka ba?
