October 2014 Blog Income Report, Heating Up at End of the Year

October, November and December are always a nice period for bloggers and online money makers since usually Q4 yields more income than other months in a year. I experienced the same hike during this time, it is not only due to Q4, but also by a sudden traffic increase on one of my blog.  Also another money making blog got hit by Panda 4.1 which lost some traffic and money. By the way, I will publish another guide explains how I have recovered (still recovering) the traffic of that particular blog which affected by Google Panda 4.1.  Anyhow in this post let me share my October 2014 Blog income report, it is collectively from my all blogs

The purpose of this post is very simple and straight forward, it is to motivate and inspire you in blogging and make you believe in your self. When you see someone is making money only by blogging (writing posts) as a part time job (in spare time only) who has limited time for blogging activities, then how about you? If you are a full time blogger and having plenty of time to learn and invest your time and knowledge in blogging, then you can do far better than me in short time.

My this year 2014 year target is to make 5000$ on December 2014. I’m trying my best to touch that mark. Still there are 2 more months in this year and I managed to make $ 3560 on October 2014. That’s not bad at all for a part time blogger, right?

I started expanding my blog network by acquiring old blogs and starting news blog with others. Though I have not seen any remarkable increase by this new expansion, I’m sure I will see the good results by next year 2015.

Break Down of October 2014 Blog Income Report

1) Google AdSense

My main and favorite hassle free money making program. Since they have started EFT payment to Sri Lankan AdSense publishers, receiving payment from Google has became so easy. I’m getting my money almost one month earlier than earlier traditional check payment method.

2712$ is from Google AdSense for October 2014, my ever top earning of a month in my 6 years blogging career.

2) Vibrant Media

The earnings of this network fluctuates, but something reasonably I get every month and my 2nd top income source.

I have made 650$ from Vibrant media. It is a famous and high paying in-text ad network in the market (as per my knowledge)

3) Amazon and BuySellAds

Around 200$ from these two ad network.

Since couple of my niche based websites got affected by Panda 4.1, Amazon associate earnings have dropped considerably.

The Inspiration Point


Most of us blog for money (or course other factors too, like self satisfaction, knowledge sharing, helping others…etc), if you are a person started blogging to make money, my say is ‘it is possible’. You must blog and follow certain rules religiously without cheating others or just publishing crap on your blog. Give something really useful for readers/internet world.

Making money from Google AdSense also very much easy and possible. Day by day Google get more advertisers, so the CPC of particular topic increases, which will be more beneficial for bloggers like us.

For example, if one click used to bring 1$ in 2012, the same topic click can bring 3$ now in 2014, because the competition and bidding between advertisers have been increased, we can make use of it. Also, there are lot of other opportunities I haven’t tried, but you can try and it will work for you.

Blog hard (not smart now), find out others’ problems and fix it by your self, make your own solutions and give it to readers. After certain level, your blog will make money like an autopilot.

      Is your blog working? I’m not able to access it. Yes, consistency with necessary changes will work.The topic is a main key Shekhar. Good luck, feel free to ask for any doubts. I would be happy to answer (but slowly) 🙂

  • Not sure how you are doing dinesh, i am struggling to get hosting costs. What you have achieved is in to 90% of bloggers, while looking at most of the blogs fail.
    Any detailed posts on your journey is much appreciated.

    • I’m not sure when you have started your blog, but it looks good. But you have to see the topic you are writing, for me it looks more competitive. The purpose of starting DailyBlogMoney is about telling my journey only. You will find some useful and history type posts in this blog. Specially this link can give some ideas, https://dailyblogmoney.com/category/uncategorized.
      I started blogging in 2008 but stopped in few months. In 2010 again I started with full of hopes and strength. With this 2014 year I’m completing 4 years in serious blogging. So, it is not a simple and short journey, it is like completing a 4 years university degree and after completing the degree someone gives a job for 3000$ monthly salary, how does it sound? 😉

  • You have told that the click $1 of 2012 is $3 of 2014 due to the increase of bidding among the advertisers but I have a doubt, at the same the publishers are also increased more rapidly isn’t?

    I can only able to find Adsense getting weaker n weaker every year in terms of producing revenue to the publishers and other networks slowly improving.

    • @Edusters,
      mmm….. its 50 50.
      Yes, there are other networks improving and we can see best alternatives for Adsense. But still I have the feeling Adsense perform better with higher number advertisers and robostic backend system. It is not harm to test other networks and decide which one perform well.

    • I live in Oman,but the payment go to Sri Lankan bank because my Adsense account is based from Srilanka only, because I’m a Sri Lanakan.
      My bank doesn’t charge anything for EFT.

    • @Khaleel,
      I’m using LongTailPro and Micro Niche finder both. But when I select the keyword, I do not worry much about CPC. I just see the number of searches and competition only.

    • It depends on your blog topic and visitors type. 1% to 2% is not a bad CTR. Always experiment the ad places and see the CTR changes. Try to get new visitors, especially from search engines daily, that will increase the CTR.

  • Hi,
    I’m a friend of Khaleel who commented above, may I ask you something about Competition of Keywords? Which one we should select HIGH Competition of LOW Competition?


    • @Jaseem, the ‘competition’ I meant here is from keyword finding tools. Each keyword finding tools have different formulas to calculate the competition and suggest whether we can target these keyword to get in to Google’s first search result page.
      I think the competition you meant with HIGH or LOW, is from Google Keyword tools (Adwords), that is for advertisers only. These HIGH or LOW do not say anything to bloggers whether they can target them to get in to Google search result page.

      I can suggest you to target HIGH competition keywords ( that means it has more competition among advertisers, so the CPC should be high), then analyze the particular keyword with manual method, one of the way is here,

      Let me know if this is helpful.

  • Hi, this was inspiring – you’re right. I am new to starting out on my journey but I hope to see steady increase until I start to make a decent passive income.

  • This is very encouraging! We hope to eventually earn a living online, but at this point we are simply not there yet. We will be glad if we can make even a hundred bucks per month by the end of 2015.
