How’s Your AdSense Income So Far This Month?
Posted on 27th October, 2008
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 Sabahan.com.
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.
