Where is Your Blog Money Coming From?

My website, QuirkyScience.com brings in a small amount of revenue by means of AdSense. Now often the U.S. or the U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or South Africa is a leading source. But sometimes...

Well, the past two days, my leading source was Sweden. Second yesterday was India. Third was (of all places) Liberia. Today, it is Singapore, Mozambique, and of all things, most of it is from (as AdSense calls it) an Unknown Region!

Where does your advertisement buck come from? Do you experience the same thing I do? What can I do to increase the geography and the demand for my articles in such places as Dubai (yes, I've received money from there) and the Sudan? Spain? Greece? Italy? Whatever?

Wish I could tell you but there is no adsense money for me at present!

I think many are discontinuing AdSense. They do deserve it. They are even suggesting ads that would essentially sabotage online writing by interfering with it so badly people won't usually tolerate it.

Blog money? Oh yes - I remember that! emoticon :smile: My only source of online income right now is Adsense but it's only pennies. Most of my traffic comes from the UK, USA and Canada with a sprinkling from Europe and the far east. Curiously, one of my YouTube videos has amassed over 10,000 views most of which are from Russia - weird or what?

Would you believe so far today the leading money for me is coming from China?

Now GA is (for a good handful of days) racking up a little money in the morning hours, then dying out almost 100% for the entire rest of the day (about 12 hours), day after day. What is it? There's ALWAYS something wrong with Google AdSense.

Hm. Let's see. What part of this doesn't smell right? THREE DAYS IN A ROW, I get $0.82 from GA, precisely, the money being tallied during the morning hours...

I have issues with adsense not counting views, i appreciate ad blockers and invalid views are a thing but we are talking hundreds, if not thousands of views counted on my blog that adsense dosent count. However according to my blog, the vast majority of my views come from Russia consistently for the last few months, closely followed by the USA

The current situation with the USA is changing. Maybe this affects me, also. You see, I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses, and Russia is trying to eradicate us as a religion. At least it seems so to me.
