Google Adsense Income
It’s only the beginning of the month, but I’m hoping that my Google Adsense earnings will be my best ever this month. Google Adsense is a very small component to my portfolio of ways I make money online from home. But recently I have had enthusiasm to convert some of my domains into wordpress websites like this one. Previously I had been simply using these domains to forward traffic to other websites of mine.
After implementing the WordPress platform on a domain I bought and writing about 20 posts, I started earning Adsense income within a week. This has really encouraged me to do the same with some of my other domains.
So far this month I’ve had Adsense earnings every day. If you make a living from Adsense earnings then this is no big deal to you. But we are just getting our feet wet with the Adsense thing on our own sites. Prior to this we basically only earned on Adsense revenue sharing sites like Squidoo, Hubpages, Wizzley, and Best-Reviewer.
I’ve also been browsing around on Flippa and seeing how much websites sell for on there when they have decent Adsense earning. I can’t believe how much some of them sell for. Making and selling websites is a whole other revenue stream that I haven’t even thought about. But for some people that’s their entire online business, making and selling websites. Maybe someday I’ll get to that point but I have a long way to go until then.
Back to talking about Adsense on my websites, what do you think of my Adsense placement on this website? I’ve implemented the adsense at the top of the posts and pages on this blog by using a table and putting it right into the template. That way the adsense will only be on webpages that have content on them, and won’t show up on any index pages, tag pages, category pages, or other navigation type pages, as they would if I put the adsense code into the sidebars. This way I will be sure to adhere to the Adsense TOS.
