When you saw the title of my post I bet you thought to yourself “oh how boring.” I’m glad you clicked in though because I think you’ll be interested in what I’ve found out about Google AdSense. I don’t want to sound like all I care about is making money. Nothing could be further from the truth. I blog because I love it…but if we can make some extra bucks with a few simple changes, why not go for it?
I enabled AdSense on my blog about 6 months ago. I did it in stages. Whenever I had time I would check my Monetize page and see how things were going. It took me a while to figure out that I had to submit payment information. Anyway, I finally got things working properly and sat back and waited for the big money to roll in. (Just kidding.)
So far I have earned about $55.00. At this rate I won’t get an AdSense check for at least another
6 months. I didn’t know until recently that AdSense doesn’t pay out until you have reached $100.00 in earnings. So…the other day I googled “How to make more money with AdSense.” Several blog posts came up but this one from Christian Personal Finance had the best information presented in an understandable manner.
This guy’s name is Bob and he has been able to make a very good living from his blog. In fact, he says he makes more than at his previous day job. He admits at the beginning of the post that there is a ton of information and it probably should have been a series of posts instead of one big one. So hang in there and take your time. It’s one of the best posts I have seen on the subject.
In regards to Feedburner…I have a question. I look at my Feedburner number every time I open my blog. I try not to obsess but must admit that sometimes I do. It has been hovering around 750 for weeks. It goes up and then it goes down. Does anyone know why that happens? Are readers unsubscribing to my blog when it goes down? I just can’t figure it out. Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you to anyone who entered my giveaway over at Miss Mustard Seed. The response has been overwhelming. If you haven’t entered, it closes tonight at Midnight so there’s still time. I’ll be back this week with a new front door wreath and another WUSLU treasure. Happy Sunday!
