When I share my monthly income totals people often ask for more details about my online income. To satisfy people’s curiosity I am now going to have a monthly report detailing how I made my online income. For the month of May I made $580.69 in online income. I am counting the money I actually received, not the money I earned but will be paid later. Most money I earn online is paid the next month so any efforts I make to increase my online income this month will not actually show up until the next month. Here is breakdown of my sources of income.
Google Adsense – $346.81
Text Links – $42.26
Direct Ad Sales – $71.47
Affiliate Sales – $120.15
Since my Adsense is paid a month after I earn it I already know it is going to be down significantly this month. My affiliate sales are going to be up significantly though and will more than offset the Adsense decline. Going forward I plan to keep my affiliate sales up and build my Adsense back up as well. I would like my other sources of income to be larger than Adsense in order to be less dependent on Adsense for income. The Adsense income seems to fluctuate quite a bit and I usually can’t figure out what is causing the changes. If there is any other information about my online income you would like to know, just ask. I’m willing to hear any tips you have for increasing my online income too.
