I’m going on vacation tomorrow so my income report for is coming earlier than usual. This income report is my highest to date. After winning a contest, building a few new websites, and gaining a bunch of subscribers, I’m happy to report that I’ve set a new bar for my future income reports.
My Income for February 2008
Adbrite: I like adbrite, they pay more than twice per in text ad than kontera, yet it seems that every other day I have problem with Adbrite’s code.
Kontera: I dropped them this month because of their unusually low performance
Payperpost: I like them overall, but they can also be annoying when they deny your posts for no good reason. (However, you get a chance to fix the “mistake”)
Contests: I won IZEA’s top blogger contest. Since I was the top blogger, with the most traffic in the first week of February, I was awarded a nice $1000.
LinkWorth: I’m still experimenting, but I can expect to earn more with them next month.
My advice for increasing your month income report
1. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Your current ad placement is most likely not the best. I’ve noticed so many high traffic sites reporting less than $1000 a month in income. Even over at sampleaday we receive only 700 page impressions per day, yet we still managed to earn $200, and that is using only one ad program.
2. Use multiple ad programs! Can your blog survive the loss of your major advertising program like adsense? Don’t risk it!
3. Post everyday. Inconsistent posting equals inconsistent viewers…
