Adragast June 2013 Earnings Report

By Edited May 14, 2014 6 12

June has been an overall good month and I am glad that the trend I saw in May with so few clicks did not continue. I hope it was just a one-month problem.

On the other hand, I did not make any sales with my Amazon affiliates so it may be that Adsense ads are competing with recommended products and that readers cannot click on both.

Anyway, here is a bit more about my earnings this month.

1. InfoBarrel

I made a bit more than $0.20 with Adsense on my InfoBarrel articles and almost $0.50 with Tier 2 ads.

This is not really good knowing that I have more than 50 articles here but I don't mind it for now. I enjoy writing here and my aim at InfoBarrel is mostly to get read. I have some success with some articles in terms of number of views or comments and this is a big enough reward for me.

This month for example, I have been featured 3 times! The funny thing is that I started writing 'twice' and then went to my profile page to get the links and found out I was featured today too.

Here are my featured articles this month:

2. Successful Articles

Something else I have noticed is that my articles about me writing articles online are quite popular. My earnings reports here at InfoBarrel are read by more than 100 people each month and my lens about my adventure making money online is my best performing lens ever.

I know I like to read those myself but I did not expect people to like mine as I am not making so much money yet. By the way, for inspiration, I do recommend the InfoBarrel success stories. I read them every now and then and I really wish they would publish more of them.

Another quite unexpected success is coming from this article: Making Money Writing Online Articles: Is It All a Lie? Why is it unexpected? I haven't promoted it yet, it hasn't been featured (it is new from this month) and yet, it has quite a lot of views and more comments than many of my featured articles!

3. Other Writing Platforms

I got my first click from Wizzley this month. I have only 2 articles there and they don't do particulary well for now so it was a nice surprise. I do intend to write more there in the same topic and when I have a bigger library build around it, I am pretty sure I will do better.

My Seekyt articles are on fire. $2 again this month and an improving trend in terms of search traffic.

I made only $2 at Squidoo but again, this is a 3-month delay revenue and as I am getting more and more Tier 3 lenses, I should start getting more money (unless Tier revenue continue sinking). Also, I made 10 sales with 1 lens which is exceptional as I hadn't made a single sale at Squidoo in the last 9 months or so.

Zujava: about $0.1 from ads share and... $0.08 from an eBay click?! I did not even know eBay was paying per click. I thought it was per sale like Amazon.

Bubblews: about $50, see next paragraph

My blogs: I made $2 with Adsense on my blogs. Much better than last month and average compared to other months.

4. Future

I have taken the difficult decision to cut down on Bubblews. I have been making quite some money there but I have been spending too much time there. Bubblews is great to take a break and make some money while discussing with other people but I don't want it to become my main online activity.

I have a project for a blog that I have been thinking about for a long time but still haven't started. I need to motivate myself to do it. It has a real potential in my opinion.

Congratulations on your article features and I wish you luck on your next project. I also made the decision to cut down on Bubblews. I've made more money there than anywhere else, but it's just not for me.

Thanks for your support I need it to get started...

I cut down on Bubblews as well. Not for any other reason, as I just was not motivated to do a lot his month on writing anywhere.

Thanks for your comment, sorry to hear about your de-motivation. Hope it will go away and you will start writing at full speed again!

Congratulations on the features! I agree the income reports get read a lot. I like reading them too because it makes me feel like I'm not the only one working this. Plus there's usually a lot to learn from them. Just by reading yours I've found out that you can have eBay on Zujava, that Seekyt is looking good. And 10 sales from a single Squidoo lens is amazing, congrats again!

Thanks iamsy for reading and commenting on so many of my articles, I appreciate it! 10 sales is definitively good, especially because I don't make so many sales. And yes, Seekyt is pretty good. I am a bit angry with the editor (sometimes it removes spaces, etc...) but well, I manage to get my articles published and they are doing great in terms of revenue.

wait... two cents and five cents on infobarrel adsense?
Jul 2, 2013 11:21pm
20 cents and 50 cents. Sorry if this was not clear.

You are slow, but the money is coming.
Keep up the good work.

Hi adragast. Your article serves as an inspiration to all beginners out there. I hope that you continue to write articles like this so that we will continue to be inspired and persevere in writing more articles.

Awesome article. :D

Thanks for your kind comment, it was so nice to read! I will indeed continue as I am having a great month now. Maybe finally a breakthrough!
