December is normally a really good month. You’ve got to be trying to not make money. I had a pretty good indication that it would be a good month when my adsense earnings passed Novembers within the first week. By the end of the month, they had surpassed the entire earnings from November. Here’s what the rest of it looked like.
- TLA: $61.43
- Adsense: $354.73
- Linkworth: $49.00
- Amazon: $38.90
- CJ: $47.26
- Kontera: $112.45
- Scratchback: $5.94
- ClickBank: $44.36
- ClixGalore: $1.25
Grand Total for December: $715.32
Wow. An increase of 112.97% over Novembers earnings. The biggest gainer, obviously, was adsense. It was only $89.59 last month, so close to a 400% increase there. Kontera continues to increase as well. About 150% there. Amazon also picked up with the holiday season. CJ and Clickbank both got a big sale and jumped the earnings up there. I’ve completely abandoned PayPerPost. The payout just wasn’t worth the work I found myself putting in.
I’ve made some money with scratchback, but that’s been slow at best. If it doesn’t pick up, it’ll probably be the first casualty of the new year. TLA is headed there as well. December is the fourth straight month that earnings there have decreased. Plus, getting rid of them could help get me back in Google’s graces and get my full PR back.
