Not that I make a ton of money mind you, but September has turned out to be the best AdSense month I have ever had. I am kind of surprised given the somewhat slow start that I saw. Traffic is down a little bit as are clicks, but my amount per click is what really did it. It is also as high as it has ever been. Of course, it is just by a small amount but the combination of decent traffic, CTR, and amount of revenue per click was enough to make it happen.
This pretty much guarantees that I will actually get another check by the end of the year. I should be seeing one in the mailbox any day now. Plus with September's results, I would expect that October and November will put me over $100 again so that I will get one in the mail during the month of December. Eventually, I will get one every other month and then monthly. It would be great if I could be getting monthly checks from Google by the end of next year.
I am looking forward to putting together my quarterly report in the next post. I figure that will come this weekend sometime after I have had a chance to see the final tally from eHow. That site always takes an extra day or two to update earnings information.
I am a little disappointed in the fact that I haven't put together as many Amazon Hubs on my secondary HubPages account as I would have liked. I am just not the salesman type so it is like pulling teeth to get me to write anything with the idea that I might sell something. Oh well, I will plug away and eventually build up a portfolio of Hubs for that account as well, but it is going to take awhile. In the meantime, I still have plenty that I can be doing.
I still have one more day left in September and it is possible that I could even make it over the $50 mark for AdSense alone. That would be great, but I especially want to continue to see some consistency. I have been able to publish more this month than I have since April of this year when I published 12 Hubs. This month I was able to get 9 done. I would like to keep working to get at least 20-30 more done by the end of the year which would put me within striking distance of 200 for the main account.
Well, that is all I have for this post. Like I said, I can't wait for the quarterly update when I will report earnings for the last 3 months and compare them to the 3rd quarter in 2009. That is where it is really possible to make growth comparisons and assess progress.
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.
