OK, well mirroring real life I thought I’d write in here even though I’ve not really felt any urge to do so for a few months recently. My personal life took a battering in October but things are a lot better now, although there are still a number of issues I’m battling with, but that’s another story for another day 😉
So how have my earnings/website promotions fared in recent months? Truthfully not too good.
There seems to be a sort of base line of earnings which my money has not dropped below.
I still earn a bit of adsense every day, plus some amazon and clickbank sales each month. I also get traffic to other things I promote but the earnings are not so good.
So how much? Well Its quite embarrassing if I’m honest because they’ve dropped a lot, in line with me “not doing any work on them”.
The Adsense has averaged around $250 to $350 a month, and has never really dropped below that, which is nice, because thats kind of like free money each year coming in and in. Amazon normally sits around the $50 to $100 mark and Clickbank around $30 a month. I also earn $100 a month from some software I promote which has a monthly membership attached to it, plus some earnings from the promotion of none other than the WordPress Goldmineforum I am a devotee of (and have been since October 2009). So about $580 a month coming in.
My issue has always been ramping this up to ten times this level… a level most people aspire to, having all bills paid each month so there are no financial strains placed on me.
The annoying thing is that at one point my adsense was really increasing very well, and some days I was getting to around $40 a day in adsense alone. This came as a result of paying people to write articles for my sites and for backlink promotional work.
I think now and imagine what I could have been earning by now… a full time income should really have been on the cards at this stage.
At the time my earnings were going well, I was devoting around $300 a month to content creation. Then family issues meant that the budget got cut and that then saw a decline in earnings.
These days its been around 4 months since Ive really been “in the zone” and methods change. At the moment people are talking about content curation but I want to concentrate on my sites.
Ive tried to focus on 2 or 3 of my best earners and have regularly placed backlinks to my pages using BMR, but have added very little new content. Im now trying to address this again and increase the content. I did see some earnings increase from this last month but once again Ive eased off because I guess I feel distracted with other aspects of my life.
Some thoughts that go through my mind are the fact that one guy who runs a website on the solar system only writes content, 2 -3 pieces a day, and he now makes over $50,000 a month from Adsense!
So.. should I just go content mad, and forget about linking, or do both… ???????
Im guessing both.. but another thing that enters my mind is that when you set a new site up it can rank on page 1 within days sometimes, just from Google so it makes you wonder how important backlinks really are. I know there is a whole can of worms that can be opened up but it would be good to discuss this… so feel free to discuss below.
With 41 sites I simply cant afford to do this:
- write 1-3 backlinks a day via BMR per site
- write 4-10 content pieces per month
- use UAW or EZAL
- use socialadr
so Ive been trying to focus on my best earning sites… even when theyre boring, lol. Thats why Im outsourcing stuff.
Anyway id love to hear your methods at the moment.. Im just fed up that each month is the same… id like to see progress each month, adding $200-$500 a month in earnings and increasing…
whats your thoughts?
