First month making over $300.00 with adsense

  1. Bill Manning profile image76
    Bill Manningposted 7 years ago

    It was only a few months ago that I was barely making the 100 buck a month minimum with adsense. But this month I already went over 300 bucks! smile

    I attribute it all to the people here who have helped me understand the whole keywords and back linking stuff.

    Getting a free trail of market samurai and watching the videos that come with it has helped a lot too. I will not buy it, but the free info you get is well worth the trail.

    It really helps you to see how just one word can mean the difference between no SE hits and hundreds. I now look up my key words every time I make an article.

    97% of that has come from my own sites, not hubpages. But that is mainly because I don't have that many hubs.

    I still make most of my income from affiliate sales on my sites. But I hope to increase adsense earnings over time to have it as much or more than my affiliate sales.

    Thanks everyone for all the great advice! smile

    Thanks everyone. Anyone can do it, you just need to study your keywords and competition. Then put as much content out there as you can.

    I still strive for quality articles, not spammy sound bites. A good quality, full article with the right key words will always get you at least some hits.

    So once you can do that it's just a matter of how many you can get out there. The more you have out on the net the more you will make. smile
