Adsense Dashboard - 385% Increase in 24 Hours

The Adsense dashboard is advising me that in the last 24 hours my income's rocketed by 385% - finally! Unless it's a blip I'm on the up! I've been working on a tiny bit of site promotion (er, put that on the timesheet as 2 minutes/day) and I've spent most of my time pulling together an old domain. But Google must have been sitting and watching, pitying my little efforts to regain some of that lost ground as today the income was looking really good. Most of my traffic arrives in the UK mornings, so after 4 hours I can get a feel for the day and, as usual, after the morning not much else happened.

That's three days in a row that the Adsense Dashboard is lit up with some green (income rising) instead of a row of red font words (income's going down). So, I'd like three green statements in a row sometime soon, I wonder if it'll occur. Right now the dashboard shows:

  • UP 385% Yesterday, compared to the same day last week
  • UP 131% over the last 7 days, compared to the previous 7 days
  • DOWN 11.6% over the last 28 days, compared to the previous 28 days.

So, now things are starting to show that there might still be a bit of life left in Internet income, I need to "take it seriously" again instead of just kicking the tyres.

Some underground secrets going on there..

I just mentioned in my latest post I finally clicked into my Adsense account after a long period of ignoring it. I really do have to figure out what it all means. An accountant I am not, I punch 2 + 2 into a calculator and it will give 5 as an answer emoticon :tongue:

Adsense makes no sense to me as yet since I do not have a website that I could call my own emoticon :tongue:

Green sounds good to me!

SoundNFury wrote on February 25, 2015, 8:42 PM

Awesome! Congrats. I love to see those green numbers too, when it rarely happens lol.

Congratulations on the improvements that you see in your site! Keep up the good work and here's to your continued success!!!

MelissaE wrote on February 25, 2015, 9:32 PM

it really is about keeping your site up to date. I really notice an upsurge right after I've posted something and shared on social media.

I just wish someone would tell me what I get wrong with AdSense. I just do not have the knack at all. I did what they said..

arthurchappell wrote on February 26, 2015, 2:47 AM

sounds great - well done - maybe PP should consider adsense for us writers here too

Coffee wrote on February 26, 2015, 3:28 AM

It must be really motivating to see those stats.
Well done you - you must be chuffed.

You can try - you can easily start a website (or a blog) and they, being owned by Google, make it very, very easy to insert Adsense on the site. Then it's just a matter of promoting your site.

MakeMoneyOnline wrote on February 26, 2015, 5:33 AM

That is good! Keep up the good work! Make sure also to start collecting email addresses of your visitors. You can do it for free with mailchimp (you'll have to figure out how it works a little bit, but it's not that hard). There's nothing sweeter than writing an article and sending your subscribers to read it. Win-win - they are happy you provided them with first-class content they enjoy and you're happy when you see your Adsense or sales soar :)

iIhave a blog but it is in disarray!!

MakeMoneyOnline wrote on February 26, 2015, 5:57 AM

Fix it up. Have as few distractions as possible. I put the adsense ads directly in the text directly below the headline (you can do it by inserting the code directly in the post in the "HTML" mode. I make the ads title dark blue (traditional link color) and the ad description black (you can set it up in your adsense account). I've had best results with "large rectangle ads". Good luck!

If there are underground secrets, I wish somebody'd let me in on them! Things'd be a lot easier.

UK_Writer wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:26 AM

With Adsense, once you're logged into your account, click on My Ads, then choose an ad size and generate the code. Then copy/paste that into your website. It's as easy as that to get started. Only after you've done that do you start to think about changing the font/font colour of the ad (which are options in the My Ads section), or whether to use more ads on the page - and where - and which sizes.... but the first step begins when you simply generate then copy/paste the code into your site and sit back and see what happens.

UK_Writer wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:27 AM

Yes, if you have a website in disarray, then fix it up - it's a never ending task really. I'm always fixing them up - and never completed and never happy :)

UK_Writer wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:28 AM

Green is better than red, that's all I'm focussing on at the moment. Green across the board, all three values, is better than two greens... but I hope to see green in all three slots later tonight. Adsense figures update for me at 1am UK time.

UK_Writer wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:28 AM

It's just a shame that a 385% increase on £0.01 = £0.05 or so .... *sighs*.
I used to consistently make $1000-1200 every month by doing this.... plan to get it back up to somewhere close to that. Half way would be nice in the next month.

Cheers. It's hard work, I'm putting in 15 hour days

UK_Writer wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:30 AM

Yes, I've not got to the point where I've the time to share on social media, but I'm getting there. Maybe next week it'll be ready.

UK_Writer wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:31 AM

Well, the steps are: Get a website where you can use the ads. Write something, with an eye on keywords and getting indexed in Google, insert the ad code, hope that Google then ranks the page highly - and potter off to promote your website/page on social media etc .... repeat daily/weekly or as required.

UK_Writer wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:32 AM

Well, a lot of people won't ever get an account, for a variety of reasons, or were banned in the past. If people want Adsense, then it's wise to look to other sites that already provide it, with full Analytics code functionality.

UK_Writer wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:33 AM

Not chuffed enough to feel I'm close to getting finished/it right though... I'll get there. It was all sorted some years back and now it's all just a mess, so I've weeks of work ahead to knock it all back into shape.

UK_Writer wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:34 AM

I've tried that in the past, I've a mailing list of joiners from 2007 of over 50,000 people. Trouble is when you start trying to email them, that's when it all falls apart. Although I've to investigate other options. The problem is with mail servers. I did get a service that was achievable but it'll have taken a month to send one email out....and I tried aweber years ago and could never work out how to set it up at the time from the system/domain I was using.

HappyLady wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:38 AM

I do all that. I did see green this week briefly, but not enough to buy a blade of grass!

maxeen wrote on February 26, 2015, 7:54 AM

Makes scrubbing floors sound easy I think!

UK_Writer wrote on February 26, 2015, 10:36 AM

It certainly does! Scrubbing floors is much less stressful, much easier to do - and pays more than Adsense!

allen0187 wrote on February 26, 2015, 9:33 PM

Well, your 15 hours is bearing results that you strive for... good for you!

scheng1 wrote on February 28, 2015, 8:46 AM

I wish my Adsense income increases at such a good rate too.

UK_Writer wrote on February 28, 2015, 11:31 AM

Mine went red yesterday - and it looks like it'll be red for today too. Current income today, £0.02 = $0.03.
