Following on from the $100 a day post further down the board I have to agree that these type of ads give us a huge boost - especially when they seem realistic amounts.

Someone mentioned $1-$20 a day is harder than $20 plus a day and I am hoping this is right. I have worked very hard to get my 4 sites up to $20 and while I won't keep my foot off the gas I know the hard work has only just begun.

The jump from $5 - $20 a day for me happended within two months and it was largely based on the tips here about ad placement.

My sites have been live between 2 to 14 months and the older one is making an ok amount from affiliate links (average 100 a week).

I don't really have a great deal of advice but as with anything worthwhile do not give up.

The most exciting thing for me is the freedom and positive impact on my life this is having...

For example in November I will go full time for 3 - 4 months on my sites to really push things. I will be leaving the winter and expense of the UK to settle somewhere in SE Asia for a few months.

I will take with me a laptop and the belief that when I get back to the UK next spring I can earn more money this way than contracting for big companies.

That in itself is all the motivation I need.

For me, it was easy to go from $3 a day to double and triple digits...

it was hard to get to $3...I had my sites all wrong.

It didn't take me long to reach that first mark once I realized adsense works and put it up on most of my sites. I've recently almost doubled my earnings from that mark and had a record-breaking month in June and July is looking even better *knocks on wood*
I'm at a point now where I don't think there's much else I can do but start a couple more sites, maybe dump some low earners, and start to watch my channels closer. w/ my two biggest earners, one site gets half as much traffic, but makes twice off of adsense as much as the other... So I need to monetize the more active site more & I'm studying channels for the first site more closely to see where the improvements need to be focused. Fortunately, the more active site has a lot more sponsors who pay a flat monthly fee, so I'm sure it's pretty even...

My wife's new site just had her first $1.90 day on AdSense the other day.

Guess we'll buy a stick of gum and celebrate.

I had my first $1 day on Tuesday. I could get some Tic Tacs to go with that gum. That's only after 2 weeks of AdSense on a 2 year old site. I'm psyched. Please don't kill my buzz.

my first day with $20 took an year or so.

I hope my $50 days and $100 days come sooner.
