This the Google Adsense Income Report For August 2015 for two adsense niche sites that I have recently started to build in June 2015 with the aim of making $100 a day from Adsense.
I have have been busy in August writing content for my website in the forex niche and as I’m writing this now, I got 89 published posts in total so far.
When it comes to making money with adsense, content is king.
The second website, I have left stagnant and haven’t done anything to it in August.
My plan as it stands is to get the forex niche site to where it needs to be and then start working on my 2nd site.
WHY IM HAPPY WITH MY ADSENSE INCOME FOR AUGUST
Now, for the month of August, my total adsense earnings came to $11.98.
When you compare this to my adsense income for July 2015, which was $4.78, this is an increase of $7.20 or 151% .
So the question is: Am I happy with my adsense income for the month of August?
Yes, I am…a little bit.
Why I said a little bit is because I also had a previous adsense site where I made AU$28.69 in adsense earnings in the first month and comparing the results of this website to that website, it’s not even close yet…but here’s the thing though: that site had a decent amount of traffic happening before I decided to install adsense that’s why the earnings on that site were higher in the first month compared to the site I’m writing about in this report.
So in light of that, I’d say, yes, for a brand new ansense site to be making this much money in the 2nd month is really good.
TRAFFIC DETAILS FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST
I really believe in targeting long tailed keywords with low competition and writing post targeting those keywords.
Now, when I say “target”, I really don’t mean writing posts and over stuffing it with keywords to increase my keyword density.
As a matter of fact, I really care less about keyword density and trying to stuff a lot of keywords I’m targeting in a post that I create.
If you write like that, there’s no “life” and no connection in that kind of post and visitors can feel that. You really don’t want to be doing that.
When I write posts, I write like I talk or I write like I’m explaining something to a friend in a conversational tone.
If you are finding it difficult to write, then I’ve just given you the simplest and the best technique to write: write content for people, not Google or Yahoo or Bing.
Yes, you need the SEO benefit for every post you create but when you write a post in a conversational tone, everything you are stressing about will fall into place. Here’s what I mean:
- the main keyword that you are targeting in that post will fall naturally throughout your posts in a logical sequence and you won’t need to stress about how to fit them into a post that does not have enough of that keyword (keyword stuffing in other words)
- you will actually end up writing long tailed keywords in the process without realizing it.
- you will also end up writing the variation of the main keyword you are targeting without actually thinking about it.
The you will see the benefit of writing post like that.
It wont take long before you’ll see organic traffic coming to your site.
Believe me. Google will send you free traffic quite quickly from long tailed keywords.
So how did my forex site perform in terms of traffic for the month of August? Here’s the Google Analytics Audience Overview Chart showing how many people visited my site:
Now, if that’s not interesting, this one is! Let me dig deeper and show your what channels the traffic came from:
Notice my Organic Traffic Above? Most of these are from Long Tailed Keywords with Low Competition.
What is surprising is that most of these long tailed keyword were not specifically targeted in my posts. But google is giving me page 1 rankings and some of these long tailed keywords are even sitting on Position 1 page 1 of Google.
Here’s the screen shot of the organic traffic from keywords and notice especially the long tailed keywords (that have been blacked out…sorry can’t show them to you).
Here’ the thing with long tailed keywords: they may not bring a lot of traffic monthly but if you write hundreds of posts and google ranks your for many hundreds of long tailed keywords, you’d be amazed at the traffic numbers you get at the end of the month.
Google analytics shows that my Organic keywords as well as organic traffic are increasing.
Also I can show the same information by using the ahrefs positions explorer tool and here is what its showing:
What these shows is that my strategy about targeting long tailed keywords with low competition is working. I expect this increase to continue to next month.
FACEBOOK FAN PAGE CREATION
I’ve created a facebook page and so far I’ve got 32 facebook fans.
If you noticed on the previous chart above, the social traffic I got for the month of August all came from Facebook. That’s one traffic channel which I intend to focus a lot more in the future as this website continues to increase.
BUILDING AN EMAIL LIST
The purpose of creating my email list is two fold:
- I control the traffic. So whenever I create new post, I email my list and I’d get visitors within seconds and minutes.
- If I have product to promote, its much easier to promote and get sales from your list who know you already then to cold sell to someone you don’t know.
This is one job that I haven’t started yet and which I intend to complete by end of September 2015. I still have yet to work on my “lead magnet”.
If you don’t know, a lead magnet is a free ebook, free report, free software etc that you give away for on a website in exchange for a visitors email address. Its really an “ethical bribe”…
For example you go to a website where you see this report about “10 Simple Techniques To Increase Your Adsense Earnings by 1000%” and the person is giving away free but to do that, you have to enter your email address first before you get sent the download link to the report in an email (or a new page opens up a website after you’ve entered your email address so you can access the free report etc).
WHICH IS THE BEST EMAIL SERVICE PROVIDER: AWEBER OR GETRESPONSE?
Which email service provider will I use?
Well, I’ve used getresponse and I’m familiar with them so that’d be the one that I’m going to use and I don’t intend to change that.
Everybody has an opinion or two about which one of these two email service providers is the best…and I suppose they are entitled to that but at the end of the day, its not which email service provider you are with but are you making money with the email list you created?
That’s the million dollar question.
WHAT PRODUCT AM I GOING TO CREATE TO SELL?
I have a two product ideas in my head that I can create:
- one is a software
- and the other one is an ebook-a course on a very specific subject related to the forex niche where I see there’s still a great need for great information regarding that.
The fact is: I really don’t know which one to chose or should I create them both?
When will these happen? I intend to get one or both of these two completed by end of October.
Working part time online as well having my day job and then coming home to a family and a little 5 year old girl growing up fast is not that easy as I really have to get my online-work-family-life balance right.
Sometimes I spend too much time after work on my computer building up my sites and I forget what time it is…only to realize its late in the night and I’ve missed telling a bed time story to my daughter.
You see, once she grows up, she will hate staying around me but when she is young as she is now, she’s “daddy’s girl” for now so time spent now with her and playing with her is…well, precious.
