This month has been the first time since June where I didn’t set a record with my earnings. They came in at $1648.80 for November though which I’m still really pleased with. That’s still my second best month ever and considering I was only aiming for a consistent $500 a month by December, I’m really happy to continually exceed my expectations.
- Google Adsense – $276.21 - Once again I just missed the $300 mark which is frustrating but I can live with that. I’m just happy to continuously be coming close to $300.
- Affiliate Sales – $1188.37 - Another great month for affiliate sales but it’s still the same single program that’s coming through. Trade Doubler did well for me last month with around $80 in commission and that dropped off to $2 this month which is a let down. I need to find ways to get the other programs on board.
- Linkworth & Text Link Ads – $114.22 - This is creeping up slowly without much work on my part so that’s always nice. I had two Linkworth links but one has just been cancelled. I’ve never really had much consistency from them.
- Private Link SalesÂ - $70 - This is where my earnings took the biggest hit. I usually seem to get link sales out of the blue and I didn’t this month. Well, I got two but one of them hasn’t paid yet so I’ll roll that over to next month. I have two recurring links for $10 each as well and it’s nice to be able to count on that. Setting up monthly Paypal payments for link sales is a great way to go.
Next month will be an interesting one because I have $700 worth of private link sales that are due for renewal. I can’t believe a year has gone by since I first discovered this revenue stream! I’m curious to see how many renew, especially since my PR is now 4 instead of 5. I think December could be the month where I break through the $2000 mark if some of the links renew.
December will also be the month when I get my freedom! I don’t start travelling properly until January but I’ll be home in Canada for three weeks starting December 14th and I’ll be able to work full time on my sites. I doubt that will have an impact on my earnings until down the road but it will be interesting to see if it does.
So all in all I’l extremely happy once again and looking forward to seeing what the future holds!
