Today was a record-breaking day for me! $38+!

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.

Congrats! $25/d is $9k/yr. That's a pretty nice bonus.

good! congrats

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.

Way to go! It's a great feeling to break a barrier. I also contribute my increase in earnings to the generosity of contributors on this board. Keep at it!

congrats! any goal can be reached, it depends on what and how you did it.

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.

Congratulations! I wish you even more.
I'm also making good progress, but I've come to understand that a big earning in one day doesn't mean much, I could make 1/3 of it the next day. Not that a big day is bad, its always cool to watch those big figures for a change. But when it come to reviewing your progress, your best judgement is to compare the daily average of each month.

$50/day would be nice.... so would $100/day, lol.. My as income generally doesn't have huge fluctuations, but tends to rise or fall steadily. But for now my goal is $1,000/month, and it looks like it's getting close :D

Someone asked about visits-- I have 1.5-2k a day avg.

today was another record breaking day-- $45+!

congrats uhwebs!

which changes led to such an improvement that you got from 4 usd to 38? was is just a change of colour or the placement of the ads? did you concentrate on getting more traffic?

i'm new on this and would appreciate any comments from you.

I have similar traffic and the best I ever got was $12. This means I need to work on my ad placement better. :)

Congratulations uhwebs! Sounds like you are on your web to some big dollars via Adsense.

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.

Thanks everybody for your support :) I certainly hope I can reach $100/day! At this rate it seems possible.

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.
