August Is Best AdSense Month for 2010

Well, August 2010 slowed down a bit at the end but it still turned out to be the best AdSense month of 2010 for me in several different areas.  First of all, it was my best month EVER for ad impressions.  This obviously means that my traffic was the best ever for the month.  I am hoping that this is the beginning of a positive trend that will last for the rest of the year.  If I can continue producing content and creating backlinks, I think that I can increase traffic by about 30% by December 31st.

It was also the best month EVER in terms of absolute number of ad clicks.  Again this is another encouraging sign that I am hoping will continue as we move into the fall and winter.  In 2009, October was a very big month for me.  I am not quite sure if there are seasonal variations yet since I have only been doing this for a little more than a year and haven't had time to see a pattern.  I do know that there are plenty of ups and downs in traffic and revenue but I am hoping that the trend remains positive.

Finally, August 2010 was the best month of the year (and 2nd best ever) in terms of AdSense earnings.  Needless to say, I would especially like this trend to continue.  I would eventually like to get to the point where I am able to earn enough to get a monthly check from Google.  It is difficult to know exactly when this might occur since I am not quite halfway there.

I was very pleased with the overall consistency that I saw for the month of August.  I was able to earn something most days for the first 3 weeks.  It slowed down the last week of the month, but I was very encouraged to see a positive response to my online efforts after taking the month of July off.  I will still be very busy during the rest of the year but plan to make an extraordinary effort to write and backlink.

As you know, I would like to develop some product Hubs for Amazon to see if some concentrated efforts will lead to increased sales.  I would like to end the month with 30 Hubs devoted to products.  Since I have 3 already, I would have to make 27 more.  That will be quite a bit of work for the month and would represent getting almost 1 done each day.  Obviously, I can't let myself get behind.  I will be doing this on another HubPages account so that I can keep them separated from my other articles.  I think it will be easier to follow traffic in this fashion although I won't keep Amazon stats separated.  I will still be able to tell if my Amazon clicks increase.

Well, I know that there are several who had a good month of August.  I know that the earnings trend was positive for many people.  So, how were your results for August?  Traffic up?  Earnings up?  Get a lot of work done?  I would love to hear how it went and look forward to being able to share some encouragement with one another.

  1. Congratulations Kidgas on having several personal highs for this month. I'm sure things will just continue to improve for you in the future - that's the beauty of much of this work. I had a great month as well, and I am looking forward to the fall and the coming holiday season!

  2. Thanks so much Michelle. I'm glad that you had a great month too. I appreciate your encouragement.

  3. August was my best adsense month yet. It's still peanuts but it made me happy and helped motivate me to try harder. Congrats to you!

  4. Carrie,
    Congrats. Mine still feels like peanuts too but will help keep me going as well.

  5. Congratulations on your earnings! I think I broke the same three records with my Adsense too!

  6. BB,
    Congrats to you. I have no idea why August was that way, but I won't be complaining. September is off to a slow start, but that's OK. I expect it to pick up going into December.

  7. August was my second-best month for Adsense ever, as well. I usually do best in the spring months due to the content of some of my niches, so it was great to see steady earnings in August.

    Still working toward a goal of $1k/ month from Adsense ... progress is slower than I'd like, but at least it's happening.

  8. Maria,
    Well that's good that you are making progress. September has been quite a let down for me so far. I am constantly amazed at the differences that can occur from week to week and month to month. Guess that is the nature of the beast.
