So this weekend I got an email and I could not believe what I read. Last week was a very special in regards to Google Adsense program has been around for 10 years now!
I will be honest; I had thought that Google Adsense has been around a lot longer than that. Though, this means that I have been working with Google Adsense for the start which I never realized.
So Google is celebrating its 10th year anniversary which on their video found here.
I can remember purchasing my site back in March of 2003 and shortly after that signing up for Google Adsense.
I can remember just like it was yesterday my first time experimenting, and had a full skeptic mindset thinking to myself. This is never going to work. Seriously, I have to make $100 to even get a pay check from Google. I will probably put in all this time, effort, and hard work and I will never see a dime.
I can remember the days of not really know what I am doing and just trying to figure out which ad size and color works the best.
Than it happened!
No lie, I got my first click and the money started coming. After one month I had made a whooping $32.54. I starting thinking to myself this actually could work.
Than the next month I got my first Google Adsense paycheck in mail which really surprised me.
By no means was I ready to retire or even to quit my day job over this kind of money. Though, it did give me a hope that I could really make some decent money with this Google Adsense.
I will admit I got excited. I got really excited and starting working even that much hard. I started learning more about ad placement, ad size, clickthrough rates. I discovered how important it was to have the ads blend into your over web design. I also figure out that for my site the upper left corner was the sweet spot for my Google Adsense placement.
What I did next was started to generate a ton of content at a really rapid pace. I would try to add a good quality article each and every single day 7 days a week. At that time I was just learning, but to me it just made sense to have more pages which meant more ads. My logical thinking went well if there more ads than I have more chance of getting clicks which in the end of the day puts more money into my pocket.
Once I started tracking my site and pages. Next I started to see that some days I was getting only a few clicksthroughs, but I would make more money. So I started to research and learn that different keywords actually brought in more or less money.
I began to try different things to see if I could increase my google adsense.
Sure enough it worked.
To make the long story short here are some of my highlights early on again strictly from Google Adsense alone:
- Nov 2004 I had my first month of over $2k.
- Dec 6th I saw an one day earning over $100 for the first time.
- I continued to scale my adsense revenue with more sites and blogs.
Through the years with Google Adsense it has been somewhat of a wild roller coaster ride with some ups and downs. I have seen some of my best income resulting from Google adsense.
While, I will admit that I still use Google adsense today I have adventured into several different streaming revenue
While there were ups and downs in my earnings over the coming months (in January it all took a big dive due to me falling out of Google Search results for 6 weeks) since then I’ve continued to earn a monthly income from AdSense. I enjoy Google Adsense so much I wrote “15 Reasons of Why I Use Google Adsense“.
While I know there are a lot of Google Adsense ‘haters’ out there amongst entrepreneurs, internet marketing, and bloggers. I must admit that I am thank for what Google Adsense Network has and continues to do for me and my family.
Thank you and Happy Birth Google Adsense!
