Online Income Report – March 2012

Here is a breakdown of my online income for March 2012.  This is going to be the last report breaking down my online income for a while.

Google Adsense – $295.91

Affiliate Income – $367.75

Brokered Ads – $62.63

Direct Ads-$2670.81

Total – $3397.10

My online income for March was actually quite good.  Unfortunately since Google has greatly reduced the amount of traffic they are sending me and hit me with Page Rank reductions I won’t likely be back to this level for a long time.  I’ll be lucky if I can keep my income to the thousand dollars a month level. I’m going to be looking at ways to increase my passive income and alternative income which won’t necessarily be online.  Since Google doesn’t like the advertisements I was placing on this site I will no longer be taking those kinds of advertisements and looking for other ways to make money.  Once I have the site revamped I’ll ask Google to reconsider their penalty but it will be some time before I can do that since I can’t remove  advertisements until my contracts run out.   I won’t be doing online income report posts because there won’t be much to report.  You will still be able to see the amount of my online income by looking at my monthly income posts.

  1. Even if private ads went away, I’m still interested in your PPC and affiliate income. Perhaps you can chart it and show a graph every month. That way we can see these income can be increased as you work on them.

    • If I get my affiliate income up a bit I may do that. It looks like this will be the first month in over three years that I won’t make enough from Adsense to get a payout. I’ll have to build that back up too.

  2. I have been reading a lot about the Google crackdown on SEO and back linking. I understand that their main concern is quality content for those who use their search engine. I have been visiting your blog for quite a while, and I seem to come back to simply read your online income stats! That said, I have always been amazed by your numbers because you don’t seem to work that hard at writing! I mean, it’s not like your give a lot of tips about frugal living or real penny pinching! On the other hand, a lot of DIY and home renovation blogs are working their fingers to the bone. It might be time to really start writing content!

    • Keep in mind that I have several sites so my writing efforts are spread out among them. That being said I do need to start providing more and better content on this blog.
