Continued Progress - about $780 in November

Last Update: December 07, 2017

Breakdown:

$280ish from Adsense

$260ish from Amazon.com

$120ish from Shareasale

$120ish from another merchant

This is incredibly encouraging.

I'm not the type of person who thinks ahead, much, but I've let my brain wander to "where will this be next year?"

Because even if the blog is pulling in twice what it did in November, that's a big contribution to my income - nearly half my take-home salary from my full-time job. Seriously.



PS- I'd love to see more posts like this here, even if the numbers are much lower or much higher. I think we all want the "proof" that it works and since we're a community, not competitors, it seems appropriate to post progress and where we're getting our revenue. thoughts?

Now this is real progress and success... by the end of next year you'd have quit your job, take care and best of luck. I'm rooting for you. Your site must be beautiful.

Thanks for the inspiration. I'm definitely not ready to put up my stats for all to see. I already know the proof in WA and will be adding my numbers very soon.

Congratulations on your outstanding success!

Awesome job! Aren't you happy you jumped back on this. Remember when you walked away and when you came back months later you saw the work was finally paying off. Now look at you. You'll be in a way better place next year this time if you're consistent with your content and effort this year.

And by the way I posted my recent success here:

That's awesome information. If you would may I ask if how old is your site(s) and how many posts are there in it?
Reply

I started it in March and I have 33 posts.

There must be something wrong on my site. How did you use your AdSense Ads? My site is older than you and I'm still receiving a low income.
Reply
sporkypie Premium
I don't pretend to understand all the factors but one could be the niche itself. My niche is female hair loss, which I suspect is a bit of a gravy train.
Reply
accad Premium
Ok, so that niche may be drawing enough traffic. I think in AdSense traffic and site earning is closely related which I don't understand completely.
Reply
sporkypie Premium
Well, from what little I understand, Adsense pays you for impressions as well as clicks, and so the more people who view the ads, the more you get paid. And the more opportunities there are for clicks. There's also a feature on Adesnse that I just learned about called Ad Balance, where it gets rid of some of the lower-paying advertisers and also some of the ads, while preserving most of what you can be paid.
Reply
accad Premium
Yeah, I noticed that Ad balance. At first, I don't see any adjusting bar but when it appeared I adjusted it to the full the Ad fill rate.

Hi! Stephanie,
Indeed, your achievement is impressive and I will look into how you have done. I have yearned for a similar progress, but am still stuck despite having worked hard. So, I ask for the help of any resources like you.

Congratulations-a-million!

thanks, Chin-Ti! Just keep doing your keyword research and get lots of comments on your posts. That's the only focus I really have...and I think that's what resulted in the google ranking.

Hi! Stephanie,
Is this good or bad for having "lots of comments on your posts"? Is there anything further I can do to heighten Google ranking?

Thank you for taking time to help me.

I have about 10k site visitors a month. What are some higher paying ad networks, if you don't mind me asking?
