So now that I’ve given a bit of history on my earnings with Adsense, Text Link Ads/Linkworth, affiliate sales and direct link sales it’s time to see how much moolah I’m raking in each month. This post isÂ pretty much a carbon copy of aÂ guest post I did over at Working Nomad because I’m lazy. I’ve been posting there for about a year and there are a bunch of old monthly earnings updates so if you want to see how I’ve progressed you can read the awe inspiring posts here.
For July my total earnings came in at just under $930 which is a record month. Considering I was still floating around the $100/month in earnings about 7 months ago I’mÂ pretty chuffed with myself.Â Things seem to be pretty consistent month to month which is very important since I’ll be heading off travelling soonish and don’t want my earnings to suddenly drop back down too drastically.
Here’s a handy dandy pie chart:
I was surprised to see how much affiliates earned me but seeing this graph it’s obvious how much of an impact they can have. I really need to explore this area more because at the moment I’m relying on one main program with most others only delivering a few dollars per month if I’m lucky.
I earned over $200 for the first time in Adsense income coming in at just under $250. I also had my first $20 day with them so that’s something to work towards now that I know it can be done.
I sold a few more links with Text Link Ads but my three Linkworth advertisers cancelled so any new income from TLA was cancelled out by losing Linkworth. I’ve lowered my Linkworth price to see if I can get some new advertisers. So far no luck.
A major reason for my successÂ in JulyÂ was my living in London site which I gave a huge overhaul to. I added loads of content and I think it’s filled a gap in a market that I know really well and can write about easily. It’s already getting soom good traffic even though I have yet to go on a link building crusade.
I’m really pleased with myself, I have to say! My goal for August is to overhaul another old site and attempt to break the $1000 barrier. So far I’m a bit behind with the overhaul but I’m still somehow on track to earn a grand. It’ll be a close call though. I like to keep things interesting for your reading pleasure.
