Got My First Payment From Google Adsense

Last Update: February 03, 2018

I have just had my first big payment through being at WA which was from doing nothing but put a few ads on my website. I have only been using Adsense for 3 months and just got paid, OK, it wasn't a fortune but it still counts as getting paid and I am hoping it will continue to grow and be more frequent like every month.

It was only £92.62 but that is £92.62 more than I had yesterday :)

I have been watching that money grow slowly...no....VERY SLOWLY and I thought that it was a bit of a joke really. I know that you don't have to do anything for the money but I really cant wait until that money starts to increase.

I have always been an impatient man until I came to wealthy affiliate and learned that things just don't happen over night. If you keep working consistently on your websites and not worry about the money aspect of it, then you ill never be disappointed and can concentrate more on your content which is the only way you are going to monetise from it.

GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE THAT WAIT :)

DRINKS ARE ON ME TONIGHT IF YOU ALL FANCY IT? LOL

All the very best here

Matthew

It does take a long time to get the payment from Adsense. I thought it would never get here. Now onto the next payment.

By the way Shwni, from math point of view 92,62 divided by 0 make infinity. So your progress is infinite:) Please dont try calculate it on computer, youcan kill it. Keep smile. Vale Piotr

Thanks for the update!
The big question is, how old is your site and how long did it take from the day you published your fist article to the day you got your first penny?

Wise words from a brand new member that I focus on everyday...
"Patience and Persistence!"

Thats awesome, I was wondering if I should even bother with ads on my site or if it would even help, but I could use even a little extra passive income... thanks for the motivation. Have you had any affiliate sales?
Reply
Shwni Premium
Thank You, Adsense isn't everybody's cup of tea as they think that it might take away a sale from them. I put it on my sites to see what it would be like and so far, so good.
I have had a few affiliate sales so I don't think it has affected anything on my sites :)

Wait, you used AdSense for 3 months and got paid now?! My friend, that is REALLY good! I've had AdSense for a few years and I'm nowhere near the threshold for receiving a payout yet. I've about $80 to go before I get paid, lol! Congratulations on getting your first payout from AdSense!
Reply
Shwni Premium
Really? My threshold is £60 and I just missed it by a few £££ last month so I was ok this month. How have you not been paid in a few years? I don't understand.
Reply
Defiant6 Premium
In the US, the threshold here is $100 and it has taken me a long time just to reach $20. I still have a long ways to go to reach that threshold. Everything just carries over until you reach the $100 threshold.
Reply
Shwni Premium
That is about the same as ours in the UK with the exchange rate but if you have taken a few years to get just $20 then it looks like the training here is working brilliantly for me. I hope you get the results you want soon :)
Reply
Defiant6 Premium
You probably have worked more consistently than I have and I know that makes a big difference. I'm trying very hard to change that though as I had completely lost focus the 2nd half of last year and rarely worked on my website at that time. I'm going back through the training again currently and it has been great as there has been stuff I missed the first go round with it and updated training as well. Hopefully with more consistent action, it will lead to more clicks. I've had others tell me to that the placement of Google AdSense ads can make a big difference as well.
