A Record Day For Google Adsense Earnings

Google Adsense EarningsThis past Thursday was a pretty exciting day when I checked my Google Adsense earnings and found out it was my second highest day in revenue, coming in at $69.05. It was pretty significant because Thursday’s are not usually high earnings days or high traffic days on the net, at least not for me. I had planned to blog about it over the weekend, but just didn’t get around to it.

It was nice to see that much for a single day in revenue and it was encouraging because of it being a low traffic day. I thought, it can only get better from here. Well, today I woke up and logged into Adsense to see that yesterday was my number one earnings day with Google. The previous best day had been more than 2 years ago on Tuesday January 17, 2006 when the total was $72.77. Yesterday’s Adsense earnings came in at $74.38.

It’s hard to believe that it has taken more than 2 years to top my earnings, but if you’ve read lesson 4 in perseverance you’ll see that at one point Adsense revenue dropped by 50% over a 6 month period. I’ve been able to slowly build that back up again and I’m hoping this is a trend in the right direction. Since the past day of record earnings, it has been 2 years of not being able to average much more than about $40 a day with Adsense, no matter what I did. However, having my third best and first best day for revenue in the same week definitely signals an upward trend.

The biggest earning sites for me are in the travel niche and more specifically for vacation rentals. Of the 16 sites that earned me Adsense income yesterday, just 2 sites brought in more than 60% of the $74.38 total. And the great thing about that is, those two sites had combined total page views of just over 525 and unique visitors of just over 300 for both. Now, if I could just get 1,000 visitors every day to each of those sites, I could live off of that income alone. Extrapolated out, that’s over $300 a day from 2 sites. I need to put some extra time into getting more traffic to these sites.

I’m not going to reveal those two url’s, but making money in the travel niche isn’t all that difficult. One site just lists vacation rentals and the other site is a blog where I just write about rentals, attractions and stuff to do in a popular vacation area in the southeast. Beyond fairly good content, the trick is well placed Adsense units. I am also partial to a particular size of ads as well. I like the wide 336 x 280 unit. They make all the difference.

One last thing, I talk about Build A Niche Store a lot, but it’s probably not the best thing for a travel site unless it is just a small part of an overall larger site. Travel just doesn’t seem to do that well on eBay.

The next milestone for Adsense earnings is the magic $100 per day. I’m hoping to get there sometime next month.

  1. Congrats on your earnings! Wish my figures would rise to that. I’ve recently created a couple of sites with traditionally high paying ads and I’ve optimised ad placement. My click through rates have rocketed but my CPM has plummeted, so earnings have only slightly increased. Could it be that Google is suspicious at the sudden increase in click through rate so is smart pricing me? Probably best give it a few weeks before panicking…

  2. sweet … i hope you reach your 100 goal soon as well.

  3. Congrats, that’s great. Keep up the good work.

  4. Very impressive! Could you perhaps include a couple of the urls of your best earning websites? Just to satisfy my curiosity 😉

  5. Congratulations on the upward trend!

    My adsense earnings have declined since Google changed the clickable area.

  6. First of all Congratulations on having the best adsense earnings. Are you seeing the spike recently or just this week? Because adsense had a rise from Mid January a little bit but not where near last year since Google Adsense changed the clickable area.

  7. That’s pretty good! Congratulations on that, I’m trying to work my way up there too!


  8. I still have LONG way to go…
    My top two days have been
    USD8.31 (Jan 27, 2008)
    USD5.97 (Jan 7, 2008)
    and rest of the days (starting from Oct 16, 2006) have given me less than USD5/day

    In my case only really positive thing in those figures is that best two days have happened within last two months.
