How’s Your AdSense Income So Far This Month?

October 27, 2008 by  

In October last year I reported about a 30 percent drop in my AdSense income from the previous month.

I figured that might had to do with Google pushing out yet another PageRank update where most websites reported downgrades to their PageRank scores including

Interestingly though, the opposite has been true for me this time around where my AdSense income has been higher than the previous months.

The usual suspect for this trend is the increase in advertisers demand which improve the quality of the ad inventory, which in turn affect the cost per click and cost per thousands impressions of the ads that appear on my websites.

This is my AdSense income from 1st to 26th September.


This is my AdSense income so far for the month of October. About $82 higher than the previous month so far.

In addition, as my websites attract more visitors, my ad impressions increase. As the number of good quality advertiser increases, their ads attract more click through which resulted in a higher AdSense income.

All in all it’s important to create a good quality content which will not only attract readers but good quality advertisers in the long run.

True, everyone is talking about the impending recession; but I guess the Internet is one place where the effect won’t hit you as hard if you know which variables to play with.

One of the biggest things that affect my Internet income is the exchange rate between the Malaysian Ringgit to the US dollars. Since I get paid in US dollars, I favour a weaker Ringgit over the US dollars. It’s a pretty exciting times for people who get paid in US dollars.

The drops in Malaysian Ringgits coupled with the increase in my AdSense income means I’ll be earning more in the coming months.

On the other hand, it hurts if some of your expenses are conducted in US Dollars. For instance, my AdWords expenses have been increasing but luckily for everything else – particularly my offline expenses – I pay in Malaysian Ringgit because I live in Malaysia.

How’s your AdSense income for the month of October?

Looks like it’s all good! Higher conversion rate is always good for us bloggers. As for my income, it’s always on the ‘small’ side but it is increasing by the month.

Abt. USD200 less than last month. I notice a drop these two months, not sure why. But nowadays, I rarely track my daily income because I am slowing down to concentrate on studies.

Gaman: is the adsense income you mentioned only for or the total for all your sites?

Comment by Gaman

Hallo Mr Gaman 🙂

Wah nice income for your Adsense 😉

I have wondering questions. I think you are one of the right person to ask for because been in this online business for so long. My questions are about TAX.

Q1: Will online income especially income from outside m’sia (eg: adsense, affilitae, option, forex, etc) taxable? I have various answers, some said taxable, some said not. Definitely you will tell me to check with HASIL, but what about your practice on this matter?

Q2: Refer to question No. 1 hehe 🙂

Well thank you. If you can give comprehensive post about this matter, is better I think 🙂

I pay tax because the local LHDN officer told me that my Internet income is taxable. That said, Hong Kiat told me that the LHDN officer at his area told him that his Internet income is exempted.

I’ll check this out further.

Noticed that somebody here is bragging about his income from TLA. Well, I got bad news for you people. Google is going after those that sold links on their blogs. Yes, link-selling is no longer a great money making option for bloggers. If you value your Pageranks and the existence of your pages in Google’s index, please remove those TLA ads (text links, inlinks etc) as soon as possible.

You people have been warned. 🙂

AdSense revenues also change as the content of your site changes … different niches pay differently. Google is always going to be matching your website with a main keyword… sometimes it’s not for the best.

The US economic downturn seems to have little effects on my earnings. My earnings were pretty much the same as previous months. Hopefully one day my earnings would be as much as yours, but i still have a long way to go.

If I hit USD 1.50 a day consider good, nowadays Adsense not so good.

Maybe the Adsense Publishers a bit on the edge due to economy downturn.

I run a tech blog called cyberst0rm.
My AdSense income has been growing at a fairly rapid rate since the start of 2008. I’ve seen income grow month-on-month for the last 15 months. Things show no signs of letting up!!

The thing to factor for me is traffic which is directly proportional to AdSense revenue! Long may it continue!

it is about 2 mths adsense earning is dropping, now it is hard to get an average of $25 perday, I’m not sure whether it is due to economic turmoil or any other mechanism imposed by google. I’m stilll looking for the new niche and will set like yours in upcoming months.

I just put adsense on my website, when the income reache nearly $100, Google closed this account. I don’t know the meaning of “Invalid” clicks, but I believe Google could save much when closed so many websites.
Your ideas?
