April 2011 – Blog Income Report $$$, Improving…

Every month I share my monthly blog income report to encourage and motivate you in blogging. This is my April 2011 blog income report and it was really good one for me. Just remember, this income report is completely from my another blog www.sysprobs.com. I have not started making any money from this DailyBlogMoney.com and these are the only two blogs I have as of now.

April started with little tense for me, because I need to maintain or increase my 1000$ per month target every month which I achieved in previous month. But, things went so smoothly and even better.

This is the month I left Adsense ads untouched without doing any experiments. The April 2011 blog income from Sysprobs.com is completely from ad networks. Compared to previous (March) month earning 1002.34 $, the April earning is 1496 $ with 49.25% growth rate 🙂 pretty good ah..? .

In fact, I was not so interested in publishing posts and other activities like commenting, replying emails..etc during April due to some issues in my full time job, IPL cricket and some personal pressures too. But, this April earning is really encouraging my blogging activities and I’m happy to share with my readers.

Subscribe and stay tuned with DailyBlogMoney, there are several useful informative and experience sharing posts are on the way.

Here is the breakdown,


Google Adsense –                  862.54

Things I Wanted to Share


Google Adsense

April 2011 Blog Income Report

Previous month adsense earning was 589.78$ and this time it increased to 862.54$ ( 46% increase) without any modifications.

As I said earlier, I have not done any changes on Adsense this month. As usual earning increased after 15th to 20th of month. I’m sure advertisers will be spending more money on PPC programs like Google Adsense in future since 1/3 of an business year already completed.

I suggest to concentrate on adsense ads in future, optimize them properly to maximize the earnings.

Contextweb (ADSDAQ) CPM

April 2011 Blog Income Report

This CPM network is really doing good job for me. Compared to last month (198.66 $), this month is good for me by 45% increase to 288.99 $.

I have three ad slots with Contextweb CPM and technorati CPM is my backup tags. I have given the importance to one main ad slot by placing it above the fold as first unit in side bar, which is performing well with good fill rate.

More CPM and Contextweb tips are available under CPM tips.

You can join Contextweb CPM network here.


Amazon Associate and Pixazza

I don’t do any affiliate business by promotions, recommended posts or emails, instead, I just added three affiliate links in my blog pages which brought 100 $. I’m happy with Amazon associate performance this month.

Pixazza also did a good job for me. The CPC of Pixazza is very reasonable compared to other ad networks. I thought to try for sometime and leave, but decided to keep it for some more time.

I don’t see any major affect in my Google Adsense CPC or CTR after adding Pixazza. Most of the people say Pixazza affects the Adsense, but I don’t think its a valid point.

If you have more pictures per post and normal adsense ads are not placed next to pictures, then I don’t think Pixazza will affect the normal Adsense ads. Yes, it slightly slows down the web pages, but acceptable when you make some money from it.

    • Chris,
      Thanks for the comment and linking back my post.
      I can see good activities and plans in your blog, Good luck mate.
      Try your best, definitely you will win!

  1. A great amount of money for a part time blogger. Congrats Mr. Dinesh. I have been watching your Blog income for last one month and you are really inspiring me to do blogging. I have joined ContextWeb CPM, but confused which AskPrice I should set. Please see my blog and give me suggestions on how can I improve it 🙂

    Again Congrats and Happy Blogging !

    • Lakhyajyoti thanks for the comment.
      Yes, definitely I will be sharing about adsense very soon, thats the purpose of this blog. keep visiting…

  2. nice to see adsense earning up … congrats .. but is Pixazza ppc or pay per action dude ??? what is the ecpm of Pixazza ???

    thanks in advance ..

    • niki, thanks for the comment.

      Pixazza works in both ways.
      If you leave pictures without tagging, then Adsense ads will be shown – PPC
      If you tag a picture with a product to sell then it works as pay per action.

      It works in PPC mode for me.
      Can’t calculate the eCPM since they don’t worry about page impressions, instead, they show the picture impressions only.

  3. Wow, that’s very impressive, mate.
    I see you are placing Technorati tags along with Adsense and they are displaying Adsense ads. Is it ok to place them together? I can see 5 Adsense blocks on a post now.

    • Tuan, Thanks for your comment and about adsense ads.
      Yes, Technorati started showing ads from doubleclick platform where adsense also showing the same ads. Pixazza doing the same thing but its backed up with Google, so we can trust Pixazza much.

      Technorati also a big network and I don’t think they will give trouble to their publishers by clashing with adsense.
      The adsense ads by Technorati will be filtered separately with different PID, so I hope there will not be any issues. I don’t see any official messages in Google’s site and none of the bloggers complained this so far.

      Anyhow, I will be watching the issue from both sites, Adsense is very important for me.

      • Thanks very much for clarifying the problem.
        I intend to place Technorati or contextweb on my blog too. They really confused me as I am afraid my Adsense account could get banned. Btw, I am wondering about 1 more thing, do the ContextWeb pay for clicks on their ads?

        • Most of the CPM ad networks do not pay for clicks including Contextweb.
          You can start with Technorati CPM, run that for one month and decide the eCPM you get from them.
          Then join Contextweb and ask for more CPM for the same ad slot. Put Technorati as backup tag, I hope this combination will work better.

          Good luck

  4. Dinesh Congratulations. Good AdSense earnings.
    I visited your blog sysprobs.com and must say it’s quite informative & well written. But I am confused about the number of AdSense Ads there. It looks like that I’ve seen 5 content Ads whereas only 3 are allowed. Please share your views.

    • Basant, Thanks for the message and your blog also great with useful and interesting information.
      I have only three adsense ad slots, but sometimes Technorati is filling other two slots, I guess.

      Please see above comment I replied to Tuan.

  5. Dear dinesh,

    I just read your this article and join here to some programs but i stack it about Contextweb (ADSDAQ) CPM network . Would you tell how i setup just 3 unite ads into my website .

    Seems like confused me – what tag is allow here how i ask a price here . what type of ads is working for me.

    Please suggest me .. Hope you your many readers helpful for this advice.

    Hope your answers

    Thanks n cheers

  6. Great work. I had about the same increase in Adsense also. From about $580 to $740. (My best Adsense month ever!) I’m hoping for another gain this month.

    Good luck you in May!


  7. Excellent Dinesh.. Was out for many days and therefore was not able to check the updates.. The moment opened back and saw 40%+ impressive growth in revenue .. just jumped up.. Really great going. Good change on the landing PAGE OF THIS WEBSITE TOO. Gr8 and Best of Luck for this month too. Keep Soaring and roaring High.

  8. Congrats for all those earnings Dinesh, you deserved it.. 🙂 Looking forward to reach that income too hehhehehhe.. 🙂 In the future….

  9. what a joke! Actually your web site is just new. In order to earn 800 dollars monthy your website should need at least 4 lakh page views for month. By seeing the adplanner data it is clear your website is not having at least 10,000 page views for month. stop posting these useless data. I know you played tricks to increase the traffic.

    • Saniya, I think you have good experience and knowledge in blogging. That’s why you calculated the required page views to make $ 800 and checked in Google ad planner also, but you missed to read my first paragraph in this post.

      Read it properly before leave these types of comments next time. I would have simply deleted this comment, but I don’t want to lose one reader by that. 🙂

      • well sorry. I thought the data belongs to this site only. Why didn’t you post this article on your official blog? Now i can say that your data is accurate.
        I can’t imagine you had approved my post. I was 100 % sure it will be deleted. But not.
        That’s why i am replying and also going to suggest your blog to my friends.

        • Saniya, No issues at all 🙂
          My official main blog is completely different topic and I don’t like to publish there and share with them.
          Thanks for suggesting this blog to your readers. Keep visiting, good luck.

  10. Traffic is very important for blog/website. I have try to get more traffic to my blog everyday as much as I can and of course it’s target traffic, not spam !

    • It depends on each slot.
      2$, 1.5$ and 1$ was in April. If Contextweb can’t meet this ask price then they will transfer to backup ad network tag.

    • Jajati Badu,
      Thats a good question.
      I’m seeing same BIG fluctuation daily in adsense. I think its a common thing for most of the Adsense users.
      Its mostly depends on CTR and CPC.
      One day you can see a good increase in CTR but less earnings than previous day, because they all clicked the low paying ads.
      Another day will be different with less CTR but more earnings, because they clicked on high paying ads.

      Saturday and Sunday will be lessor than week days, and mostly after 15th of each month I see a increase.
      My idea is, better do not check your adsense earnings daily, definitely it will confuse you and push you to modify something on adsense settings in your blog.
      Check weekly and monitor the weekly performance.
      Good luck.

  11. Your blog rocks! If I had that kind of income from a blog, I would make double what I live on now.
    Do you have any articles on the Genesis Framework?
    I’m looking to start a new niche blog to support my income as a struggling missionary in the Philippines.

    • Matthew,
      Thanks for the comment.
      Just I have an article on Genesis about changing the footer,

      Pre-made child themes in Genesis framework is simple and easy to apply. Obviously you can’t play with (edit) this theme like other normal themes, that’s the different between framework and theme. But, if you have good knowledge then you can customize the child theme as you like.
      Genesis is well optimized for SEO and you can avoid few third party plugins. I can help you in some basics in Genesis framework if you want.

      Do not forget to buy Genesis Framework theme from my affiliate link banner in this blog 😉

  12. Hi Dinesh

    It feels so good to see people like you sharing this type of stuff which most of the people hide from others or show false report but i am really happy to see you sharing your experience with us.

    I must say that your earning report is in other words are the main content of your website. Thats good.


    Q1. Which SEO plugin or tool you use?

    Q2. I am a newbie, so tell me about your hosting plan? I want to go with go daddy stuff but i live in a country where paypal is not supported and above all i do not have any credit card but i have money in cash!

    Q3. Do theme play a vital role SERP?

    Waiting to listen from you soon
    Tensed blogger 🙁

    • Hi Ibrahim,
      Thanks for the nice comment.

      1) I used ‘All in One SEO’ plugin earlier, but after moved to Genesis framework, I’m using built in Genesis SEO. I never used any other SEO tools or software.
      2) It will be difficult to survive in blogging without credit card or Visa/master debit card. At least you must get a Visa debit card. You can work without Paypal, because I started to use Paypal only few months ago after Paypal started to support my country.

      I think PayPal supports most of the countries to send money but you need credit or debit card to connect with your account.

      I used shared hosting plan earlier (which normally everyone starts), now I’m running in VPS (Virtual Private Server) plan. I suggest to go with Hostgator instead of Godaddy hosting plan.

      3) Are you asking about hosting companies in SERP? Not at all. Your blog and content play the major role in SERP. But, make sure your hosting plan is good enough to keep your blog up and running all the time without slowing down or crashing the site. This may negatively impact about your blog to other search engines, so it will effect the SERP.

      Good luck friend.

  13. Hello dinesh

    Congrats for your income growth, I just visited your sysprobs.com and what I noticed is you’re not displaying any amazon banners and you have linked it in some posts. So I want to confirm that the links in posts are making money? or you are showing amazon banners too? and one more thing is how much traffic you are getting for that blog?

    waiting for your reply.

  14. You really give me the push to go on with my plans man! $1K is a lot of money when you convert it here in our country, that’s almost 2 years payment for my kids school. Thanks for the inspiration. I’ll visit this site more often.

  15. Hi Dinesh,
    Kudos and great to see how you improved. I’ve been working on my site for past 4 years and nothing much improved. Honestly I used to put only 2-3 post a month . Earlier I fetched 100 to 200 USD per month.,but now it’s at 40 USD, really come down.
    Would like to get some tips from you on how I can improve the revenues.?

  16. hi Dinesh, I am considering putting ad on my web when it’s getting mature to cover the yearly expenses, but as u know environmental issue correlated blog is hard to grab people’s eyes and I’m worry about the CPC for this field.

    • Yes,anything related to non selling products will have less cpc. But I suggest you to not to worry now. Add the ads and see the performance for 2 to 3 months. Good luck.
