I’m travelling at the moment so posts to Nerdy Nomad might be a bit sparse inÂ July and I figured I should do my best to at least start off well with my earnings report for June. I’m up from last month and just a bit short of the $2000 mark. I came in at $1970 for June and, once again, I’m pretty happy about it.
- Google Adsense – $348 - This was the first month that Adsense fell in a long time. It dropped about $50 from May and I think Google’s mysterious smart pricing is to blame. My London site was the main victim and for a couple of weeks I was only earning a few cents per click on that site. I think things are back on track now though.
- Affiliate Sales – $1182Â - Same old story with affiliates sales. The usual star performer is still doing well but everything else is pulling up the rear. I sold some van insurance for $60 with Clix Galore, but that’s about it.
- Linkworth & Text Link Ads – $150 -Â Text Link Ads is on the decline. dropping from $145 in MayÂ to about $125 this month. I think that’s due to Travoholic.com falling from PR4 to PR3. I’m not too worried about this as it’s relatively not that big of a drop in income.
- Private Link Sales – $290 - It was a pretty bad month for link sales but I didn’t make any effort to sell them, so I can’t really complain. I had $30 worth of subscription links and a sale for $260 to a company selling travel insurance. the reason I got so much out of them is because I sold the link using UK prices and they went for it. Sweet!
I’m annoyed that I didn’t get the websites I was working on finished, but I’m hoping I can squeeze some work in over the coming weeks and have them finished before August which will be a complete write off as far as doing work goes. I had expected June to be a huge month because I thought I had $1100 in link sales lined up. It turns out that those might not come through until July, if at all, so the massive month I was expecting is just average.
July and August could potentially be writeoffs for productivity. I will try to work while I’m travelling but if I dont have wifi I might not get much done. August will certainly be work-free as I’ll have friends to host and will be filling my time with watching table tennis and weightlifting, among other things. It’ll be interesting to see if my earnings are effected. Hopefully I’ll get a nice surprise and not see any drop.
