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.
I am just a neophyte learning to make money online. I am excited about the opportunities and hope to share what I am learning.
I am also interested in real assets such as gold and real estate. I have a blog on these topics as well. Be sure to stop by and check out both my blogs.
