Good for you, congratulations GuluGulu,
That must be a handsome sum specially in India, are you saving and re-investing in your site yet? From what I hear you could live like a king with under $1k down there, I would save or pay real estate installments from $3k and reinvest $1k in new sites, same site, or even the stock market.
Then go party with the remaining $200!
Expect a lot of follow up posts asking for tips, advice and page impressions :)

Yep, and then a year down the line a nice letter from the Indian equivalent of the Inland Revenue :)

Okay a slight messup. I thought one of the posts in your profile [Record breaking $38] was started by you. Something didn't sound right. I appologize for that.
It's really an excellent achievement and yeah you can DEFINITELY live like a king with that kind of money - but I am sure you have major business expenses too.

That brings me to the tax question. I have been trying to find out about some of the tax issues - [webmasterworld.com...] - Would you mind sharing how you handle your taxes. Would be great if you can share some tips.

I think GuluGulu is too busy being interviewed for the Indian Fortune 500 magazine to answer. :)

I am sorry you have very screwed up knowledge of Indian economy.
5000$ and fortune 500 in India? Come on, second and fourth world's richest persons are Indian.

Congratulations, Gulugulu. I also broke $5000 for the first time this month. I came very close(within about $20 one of the months) in sept, oct, and dec, but couldn't quite get over the hurdle. January 2005 I only made about $1000 so my sites have come a long way in a year. I hired some help a few months back and we've been adding new content like crazy. Unlike the spuratic earnings that many post about, I have seen a steady increase, with a few minor dips and seemingly permanent plateaus here and there, since I started with Adsense.

How old is your site?

Started my site in 2000 When there was no Adsense. Joined it early with around $15 day average.

With some good optimization method suggested by Adsense team, the revenue increased since mid of 2004.

Just bought a HP TC1100 tablet PC and a Compaq V4122 laptop last year.

Rest are savings. I pay income tax as I am also running a company and wrote about this earlier in this forum.

Come on, second and fourth world's richest persons are Indian.

Being slightly prejudiced are we? According to Forbes:

William Gates III - USA
Warren Buffett - USA
Lakshmi Mittal - Indian
Carlos Slim Helu - Mexico
Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud - Saudi Arabia
Ingvar Kamprad - Sweden
Paul Allen - USA
Karl Albrecht - Germany
Lawrence Ellison - USA
S Robson Walton - USA

Having written that I am not convinced it is totally correct since the 11-20 listings misses out quite a few well-known people such as Roman Abramovich!

BTW, Forbes.com site has to be the slowest and one of the worst constructed web sites in the world!

That wouldn't be prudent. I mean, do you think he would like a thousand people optimizing for his niche overnight?

Congratulations, GuluGulu!

I can understand not posting your market details, but could you perhaps how many page views you get a month on average?

A bit less than 1mn PV/mo. I am in a very niche market from the beginning, as I also run a physical company in the same market, and I have employees working in my company.

The website is completely conceived, designed and maintained by me.

Adsense reported around $5260 (not exactly) in this january.

Congrats Gulugulu on your double income... I am sure if you increase traffic, ur income will surge compared to many others which works the opposite... Thats the beauty of a very narrow niche!

Congratulations both to Gulu Gulu and spaceylacie,

I also made a record in January, even though my total is considerably lower than yours at 2,000. Spaceylacie's post is particularly encouraging, since I have decided to dedicate more time and resources on AdSense this year.

OptiRex> Good Lord. I met Lakshmi Mittal at the RAC Club in London in 2001 at the launch of a new electronic steel trading platform. I knew he was flush - but not that flush. I should have asked him while I was interviewing him if he had any spare bob.
