After my last post about How much money I make from Adsense, KennyP stills think there must be some things I am not revealing. Hehehe. You are right, Kenny.
Thanks to Lilian for answering my question officially and telling us your useful advices.
â€œDonâ€™t hope to earn Adsense when you start writing paid posts. You do get penalised for it.â€
Do you mean we cannot put Adsense on the blog if the blog is writing paid posts?
You can put Adsense on the sidebar and after the post but not in the middle of your post, between the title and the end of the post. Otherwise, competitors ads will appear. Some advertisers paid us three figure USD so it is very unethical to do that, isn’t it?
Now I got some idea about the earning from Adsense, so itâ€™s almost impossible to earn big money from Adsense unless you have very very high traffic.
Yes, you need high traffic and a clever blend of ads to make it looks like it is not ads. It also depends on your target surfers. Maybe I am luckier because my blogs attract the not-so-tech-savvy (a nicer name for noobs) so clicks through rate (CTR) are higher.
The other thing is keywords. Some niche blog gets higher income because the ads pay more.
Can you tell us which of your blog can touch the amount? ;P
I have four blogs which do generate higher income and some of them had hit as much as USD20 in one day. But then, those were the days during the World Cup and Siti Nurhaliza fever. I have two food blogs and I am proud that the organic traffic (i.e. people searching randomly) is high as well.
I am wondering how some people earning so much from Adsense, what is the secret? I think Lilian know some of them :D
Adsense secrets? Yeah, I do know about them. So do all those marketing gurus. But does it works? Not really. Unless you are ready to walk the path of an internet marketeer where they promise you sky high income, sell you an Adsense kit and ask you to go out and sell more. These people will open up hundreds of sites, buy their own ads on Google and in the end, spam the net. Have you ever search for something, end up on a site with nothing but a few words but lots of[tag]Google Adsense[/tag] ads? Then, you click and it goes to another site with the same thing?
Or you are ready to put in some efforts to build very decent site like those children online games where kids click every damn thing they see flashing (I should know, my kids do that all the time).
Or your defination of ‘good income’ is about RM1,000 per month. When I first started, RM1K makes me very happy already. So when I touched USD300 per month in Adsense, I am elated already.
If you are still dead curious, the highest I earn per month in Adsense was only USD650. But those figure fluctuates and now, Adsense is one of the most depressive. If I rely on Adsense, I wouldn’t have the spark to write any blogs anymore. You get what I mean? I can earn twice that amount now from just one company, writing paid posts.
