Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
I don't know if anyone here remembers me, but a few months ago I was kind of a newbie and was asking questions, and I had kind of set a goal of $8/day (I was making about $4/day then). I broke that barrier-- to make steadily $12/day, then $15/day, then $20... and my average is up to about $25/day. My current goal is $1,000/month.
I just had to post because I feel this forum helped to inspire me to work more and to reach my goals-- and realize what's possible. Thanks to everyone for their inspiration and willingness to help.
I know $38 is not that much-- but for a college student it's pretty cool to be making money in your spare time.
i am trying to reach a similar target once again. i had reached 40+ but then fell down due to jagger and other stuff.. not tryig to grow again..
remember, dont try any quick fix formula to gain traffic and increase content, you may fall badly.
( i did ) .
i am now aiming at %30 per day target which seems a few months away i guess.
i was also like that a few months back, started in september and earning 8/day until november. my goal for 1st quarter of 2006 is 20/day... to be surprised I am averaging $50/day...way above my goal. I even hit the 120/day marked last december for 4 days.
nothing is impossible. GA is a real thing.
Someone asked about visits-- I have 1.5-2k a day avg.
today was another record breaking day-- $45+!
At times during ones growth with Adsense, it seems that you will never make a decent amount of money!
But according to the big dogs (the guys and gals generating $1000+/month!), just keep working at it and it will surely grow.
Huhu, what I did to increase my earnings was a little of all the things you mentioned. When I started I just put my code on the site and hoped that would be enough. I knew *nothing* about AS.
Then, I began to expiriment with ad placement and colors. I found following the google heat map REALLY helped. But I played with the position a lot.
I also did more updating of the site, which lead to people returning more, telling friends, etc. I try to keep the content interesting-- I'd rather spend 2x the time on a quality article than on several poor-quality ones. People can tell if a site is made for adsense, or if it's a 'quality' site. If they like the site, they share it with others.
