September was really an exciting month for me. Crossed few targets, joined a well waited money making program, sudden traffic increase, slight drop in earnings during middle of the month and finally it was an active month. I’m happy to say I crossed $2000 monthly income mark just with only ad networks. Let me share the details of September income report, some blog achievements, difficulties and learning.
The below income report is mainly from my main tech blog www.sysprobs.com, this time the current DailyBlogMoney did not contribute much except the balance payment for blogging service and around 12$ from Google adsense.
Yes, I crossed 2000$ mark, my targeted income was slightly lesser than this, but I achieved more than what I targeted in September. The net blog income for September is $ 2098.67, compared to previous month income ($ 1756.59), September was with 19% increase rate which was more than I expected.
I share my blog income with you for few reasons,
1) I get motivation and enthusiasm to work harder to achieve more in next month.
2) Definitely you will get some motivations and interest in blogging. Instead of saying ‘I make money in blogging’, I feel this way really encourage others and me.
3) You get some ideas, real life difficulties, experience from other money making programs and suggestions too.
OK, Here is the breakdown,
Google Adsense – 1169.20
Infolinks – 50.91
Contextweb CPM – 355.79
Technorati CPM – 57.15
Amazon Associate – 87.90
Pixazza – 93.72
Vibrant Media – 178
BuySellAds – 56
Blogging Service (Half Payment) – 50
Total – 2098.67
Things I wanted to Share
As I said in my earlier income report, I applied to join two major money making programs.
Because of I applied for above two networks, I removed the Infolinks and two ad slots from Contextweb CPM. This removal effected my income for one week considerably.
Why I removed?
The applications will be reviewed manually and someone from these companies will visit my blog, if my site already filled up with ads and in-text ads, then there are less possibility to get approval.
Finally, none of the company responded for my application after one week. I was really disappointed because I’m sure my site is meeting their minimum requirement. So, I contacted them regarding my application. Tribal fusion responded me that my site is not meeting the requirement. I will write in a new post for this confusion.
After searching about Vibrant media’s application approval process in Google, I found out it is not easy to get approval even though your site in meeting 500,000 PVs monthly. Luckily, I found out the direct contact email for an account manager in Vibrant media, contacting him and reapplying to their program helped me to get in to their system. Vibrant Media In-text ads are great and the earning is very good. You can expect one more post in coming days about Vibrant media ads and how to get approval.
Nothing to say, my top and favorite money making program. First time it crossed 1000$ monthly mark and I have seen 75$ earning in a day. Really I’m excited about it, because you know how hard is to make money with adsense.
Holiday season is coming up, October, November especially December will be great for adsense publishers. So, prepare and make your blogs ready to increase the revenue during this time. Stay tuned with DailyBlogMoney to get tips on how to prepare your blog for holiday season to maximize the revenue.
This is another great network pays me well. Even though I removed their two ad slots for one week, but still I managed to get the ever high income from Contextweb CPM by changing asking price.
I’m using their In-text ads in my site. It works like Infolinks. So, I removed Infolinks currently. Infolinks made $ 50 in 13 days, whereas Vibrant media made $ 178 in 9 days. You can see the difference in earnings. I don’t say Infolinks is bad, but when you have more than 500,000PVs and good traffic from USA and Europe countries, then Vibrant media will be a best option to increase the revenue.
Other All Networks
As usual some ups and downs. Affiliate networks did not work for me this time.
I’m planning for some promotions and niche sites in this October month.
What’s Your Say?
I’m sure most of you had good time with Google adsense and other ad networks, just share your experience. How much you have made? how about your traffic stats?
I’m not a blogger who woke up one day and started blog suddenly to make this much money. It was quite long and painful journey, I have spent huge amount of time on blogging and writing posts. So, take things positively what ever happens now, just keep some long term plan in our mind and work towards it.
Work hardly and smartly!
Good luck friends.
