May 2011: Blog Summary & Income Report

The blog summary & income report for May has been “slightly” delayed mostly due to me forgetting about it – so sorry about that, but here it is…

In the next blog summary & income report, for June, I have an announcement to make also. Since we’re currently in the middle of June, that report will of course not be posted for another few weeks – but stay tuned.

For now, here’s the May report:

I reserve the right to “no-follow” links if your site is not yet indexed in Google or if your site seems questionable or just an attempt to spam. In almost all cases, a real comment from a real human being will get a do-follow link, unless you enter keywords instead of your name, which is not allowed!

  1. This is really inspiring.

    I have a blog which gets the same traffic as yours. But my adsense earnings are not so great. Can you please look at my blog and let me know what am I missing?

  2. Quite a bad month for me too, because there weren’t much sponsored posts and traffic went down because of the Panda update in April.

    My traffic is coming back though since the past few days (after I optimized my posts for SEO) so earnings next month should be coming back to normal (hopefully)

  3. Klaus, my earning also has come down by almost 40% for the month of May. I think major reson being Panda, however so far in this months, it is improving quite a bit. Thanks for sharing and motivating us.

  4. Klaus, since the update it has been affecting a lot of peoples numbers. I have seen the numbers go down a bit too, but the end of June has seen an increase.

  5. iseriously telling i find adsense very lousy..affliates is the way to go.seriosuly i have started hating adsense 😆 anyways congrats on ur income.hope u get dude

  6. You have earned almost $99 in a single month, quite amazing…. After all you have earned a decent amount of $349.50 for this single month… 😀 Liked it

  8. May has been a dismal month for me in terms of earnings. The silver lining in your income report is the fact that your overall ecpm is quite good at around $10. You can take it from here and keep improving.

  9. Nice income..The good thing is that your ecpm is quite good, thanks to the direct advertisements or reviews.

  10. Looks like you are getting lots of traffic. I would have thought you would be making more with this much traffic. It’s still more then I make though.. Great work.
