October has turned out to be a very good month for me in terms of AdSense and traffic. I have set several personal bests for the month that I would like to share with you without getting too specific. I wouldn't want to violate any terms of service.
First of all, I enjoyed record levels of traffic (and thus ad impressions) at this blog and at HubPages. I am really excited by this since it is only through increasing levels of traffic that I can really expect earnings to consistently increase. I don't know that I can repeat this level of traffic since I had one really good article at HubPages which contributed quite a bit. But, it continues to get residual views and my lowest traffic levels of the month were higher than the lowest levels in any of my previous months. That demonstrates that at least a positive trend exists and that I have possibly reached a new plateau.
Along with the record traffic came a record number of ad clicks. Again, I don't expect to earn too much more in the next two months, but I am hoping that as things level out, it will be at a higher level. I do plan on continuing to write more. I would like to get to a total of 200 Hubs by the end of the year. To do this would require that I publish about 20 Hubs per month in November and December. It is certainly possible but will take some work since I only published 3 in October. If I am able to do it, then the levels of traffic may very well stay close to my current record.
The last thing that I would like to mention is that even though I still have days without any ad clicks, they are getting to be fewer each month. I long for the day when I can earn some ad revenue each and every day. Personally, I think that by July of 2011 I will be able to say that I have enough traffic that I am earning something each and every day. I would also hope to be able to see a monthly check by that time as well. I have been getting closer each month and will get another check for 2010 based upon my results in September and October.
Well, I just wanted to share that things have been going well. October of 2009 was the best month of the fall last year and turned out to be good to me in 2010 as well with a big boost in traffic and earnings not to mention my first double-digit AdSense day! I plan on working hard the next few months and seeing what happens. I can't wait til October 2011 to see what it has in store.
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.
