Income for August 2007

Let’s get right too it.  The following is the income from this and other sites earned in the month of August 2007.

  • TLA: $93.36
  • Adsense: $21.06
  • PayPerPost: $25.50
  • Linkworth: $37.93
  • Amazon: $7.55
  • AuctionAds: $0.35
  • ReviewMe: $21.00
  • Private link sales: $20.00
  • Kontera: $4.26
  • ClixGalore: $1.25

Grand Total: $232.26 (Compare to July 2007’s Income)

Of course, as before, these are the total incomes, not necessarily what will be sent to me.  Many of these sources have minimums for a check.  The best example of this is Adsense which only sends a check (or eft) when your earnings reach the $100 mark.  I just got a check from them this month, so it could be the end of the year before I see another from them.

Income was down this month.  Only by $64.74, but down nonetheless.  When you think about it, that’s really a pretty good % drop.  21.8% to be exact.  A little more than 1/5th of the monthly income.  The biggest things that happened this month were a drop in revenues from TLA.  They are still my biggest earner and it picked up at the end of the month so September should be better there.  Adsense was also down by about 1/3.  I made some tweaks to my rotations so Adsense impressions were down as well.  PayPerPost dropped drastically as well.  I’m a little picky as to which opportunities that I take, and there just wasn’t a great selection.  September should be even lighter for PPP.

AuctionAds continues to be a dissapointment.  I think it would do a lot better on more product oriented sites than what I’m running it on, but at $0.35 in August, it may be on it’s way out here.  Kontera may be out here as well.  After a month and a half, it’s performing poorly here, but has performed well on another site I’m running it on.  Well enough that I’ll likely keep it there for a while longer to see how it does.

You’ll also see that Amazon increased by over 100%.  All I have to say about that is that Text Books are great.

I’ve got a few other things in the works and I’m hoping to increase in September.  It looks good so far as TLA and Linkworth are both showing higher estimated numbers for September.

  1. Hey, I never heard about linkworth until reading this post. Good luck! I hope one day my blog will make as much as yours!

    Keep up the good work.

  2. Congratulations ! I just joined LinkWorth this month. I already made $70 I can’t wait to get paid next month.

  3. Hey Ed,

    I enjoy reading your posts. Thank you for listing the plethora of money making strategies to your site.

    Your site and others that are similar to it recently inspired me to create one that suits my own interests.

    I have found that 3 text links side by side from google adsense actually make a lot of money via end user clicks. Perhaps you or anyone reading this should consider this strategy.

    To see what I’m talking about, look at my frontpage at underneath the featured items.

    Talk to you later!
