Blog Income Report :: March 2007


Monetization of Genius Types is right on schedule. I’m happy with the amount of money I’m earning and especially the growth rate.

The compound monthly growth rate of income earned on GeniusTypes.com in 2007 is 24%. If it continues to grow at this rate, Genius Types will earn over $1000 in March 2008.

Six Months to $100

I was reading a thread on Steve Pavlina’s Forum discussing the idea that it takes six months of good blog posts to achieve $100/month from Google AdSense. Most of the other responses echoed the truth in this general rule of thumb.

Steve himself responded, saying that he earned $53.02 in his fifth month, and $114.63 in his sixth. Reading this validated my performance, since March was my fifth full month of blogging and I earned $74.46 from AdSense.

Total Income

March’s total income was $96.97.

    $74.46 from Google AdSense
    $10.00 from Text-Link Ads
    $10.00 from Tips
    $2.21 from Amazon Affiliate Commissions
    $.30 from Revver.com

This was a 36% increase over February’s total of $71.25.

March Income

Google AdSense

AdSense has been my most productive and reliable income source since the beginning. Here is a breakdown of my AdSense revenue over the last five months:

March AdSense Income

Text-Link Ads

In March, I sold my first Text-Link ad spot. Thank you MortgageTv.com for buying a link.

Tips

March was the second month in a row that I earned $10 in tips. Thank you Matthew Jabs of eJabs.com for your generous contribution and article.

Amazon Affiliate Program

I earned $2.21 in March from Amazon.com book sale commissions. I don’t know any blogger that is making much from Amazon, but I think it’s worth the value it provides to readers.

Revver

I only earned $.30 from Revver.com this month. This brings my all-time total up to $14.70. Almost all of this income is from the ads at the end of the videos in the article Five Ways to Create Extra Income with Little or No Money.

As I add more video content to this site, I’ll see this number rise.

Thank you to everyone for your support of Genius Types. It’s exciting to see my hard work paying off by people finding value in my posts!

    Thanks for the link Brian.

    Congrats on your income. I would have to say that my income seems to be similar, as far as growth rate. I have only been monetizing for just over 2 months now, and have been very happy with the outcome.

    Please head over to eJabs and comment on my latest article on whether or not your Page CTR has decreased in the last 2-3 weeks.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ll check it out. I also heard that YouTube is going to start paying out.

    You should post on metacafe. you need to get to $100 for a first payout, but they pay a lot more than revver, and based on views.

    Also check out Adbrite In-Video. I think they also pay out.

    I think Kevin Vahey’s MBTA blog is earning $0 now since he made it “invited readers only.” He did this after many weeks of hefty accusations that he stole thousands of dollars meant for a charity that helped children with cancer. His bloggers are demanding his side of the story. Instead his response is making his blog private. Its a sad twist on to the story of his success.

    A good starting point would be here if you are interested in reading about what happened:

    After thinking it would be that bad, I asked myself why? Because it is not bad for paying the hosting, domain and other costs.

    I still prefer to make money with Adsense. It is a nice way to generate a extra money income from the internet.

    Yeah, Amazon is not what it used to be. I like to work with Ebay for now. They have just about everything there. But probably they too will change their rewards some day.

    Awesome stuff! I wonder how you did 2 years later though…! It’d be great to see a follow up!

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
    issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard
    work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

    #

  12. GT November 22, 2013 at 10:30 am //

    Yes… hackers are out there. Only solution is to back up. Some host providers provide it for you.
