Payment In Progress - July 2008!

Well it's official! The "PIP" line has shown up in my adsense account for this month - Juy 2008!

I had tried to predict earlier (in a previous blog post) that it might come on the 23rd - which was based on previous months with the same date format. But I was one day off!

PIP - There Has Been A "Payment In Progress" Sighting!

My predictions from a recent post had the "PIP" line showing up for July 2008 around the 23rd! Someone has already reported that they got their "Payment In Progress" line showing on their adsense account!

From what I can tell so far no one in the United States seems to have gotten their "PIP" line yet!

I'll keep everyone updated!

The Adsense Site Is Temporarily Down Today!

Did a little checking around and found out more information (and a discussion as well) about the adsense site being down today.

Adsense Site Temporarily Down!

I must say that I'm not going to like the feeling of having to wait to see my adsense numbers for today - especially since I have been doing quite well!

Looks like we'll be waiting a while because it's supposed to not be back up until around 6pm EST!


As of 8pm EST the adsense site is back up!

How Do I Add The Adsense Ad(s) Between My Blog Posts?

If you are using's latest layout/format the you log in to your account and click on "layout" of your blog. (If your blog is in template form then you would have to add it to the html of your blog)

One the left where it shows your blog/post "layout" you should see a link that says "Edit" - click on that and you should see the option to add the adsense ads to your blog post.

These options include you being able to pick the color layout that you want and the number of posts that you want your adsense ads to appear - ie like every 2nd or 3rd or even 5th post.

One thing you should know however is that you have to give permission to add your adsense ads and that involves clicking on the link that they provide you with.

You Are Scheduled To Be Sent A Payment......

I guess that being obsessive about Adsense is a good quality for an Adsense Consultant to have!

If you take a look at the above picture you will see that it says "You are scheduled to be sent a payment....................". Now there is nothing unusual about that. The adsense publishers who are scheduled to get a payment the next month all see this.

However what should be noted here is that this message is showing up earlier than usual - at least for me it is! For me it usually shows up around the 20th, 21st of the month and this is the 18th!

Obsessive adsense person that I am, could this mean that we will be getting a payment early? According to my obsessive adsense computations and "guesswork, the last month that had the same date format as this month - July 2008 - was May 2007 and during May 2007 I received my adsense "payment in progress" line on May 23rd! Could this mean that the same thing will happen during this month of July 2008? Will I (and "we") get the "PIP" line on July 23rd? (which just happens to be next Wednesday.

Can I Add Ad Space From Other Advertisers?

Can I Add Ad Space From Other Advertisers?

The answer is YES!

You can add other ads from other advertisers other than adsense


you have to make sure that these ads do not look like the adsense ads! In other words the other ads can not have the same look - ie the same layout coloring - as the adsense ads that appear on your site!

The Adsense Consultant - My Search Engine Results!

Besides being an Adsense Consultant I am also a SEO Consultant as well!

I happened upon a post from someone who was complaining about their site not being in the search engine results and I thought that 'now is a good time to check my own search engine rankings' But before I did that I happened to notice something in their post and I decided to try a little experiment to see if I could get a higher search engine ranking.

How did I do? I'll let you decide!

For 2 days now this has been how my search engine rankings have been!

It seems Google's Adsense name wasn't the first to actually use the name / term adsense. It seems to have originally belong to a consultant firm (which has since sold it to another company).

Adsense Not Adsense?

"Official Adsense Consultants?"

Here is a link to a blog post that discusses the issue of there being official Adsense Consultants.

I am very hesitant to agree with such a term only because I compare it to that whole Microsoft certification thing where you have to pay a lot of money in order to get certified.

Am I Addicted To Adsense?

Actually the answer is yes! I mean the first time you get that adsense check you feel sooooo good! Then if you are like me you start of thinking about ways to increase your adsense income!

I took a look at my adsense numbers today. The weekends are usually the lowest-earning days. Mind you I said "usually because I have come to the conclusion that it is just too hard to pinpoint anything as far as one's adsense earning potential goes!

I do check my adsense numbers quite often and am pleasantly glad to find out that there are those who check their adsense numbers even more obsessively than me!

I start to panick if my adsense numbers don't change - even if its just one penny!

If you were earning money with adsense I'm sure that you would feel the same way!

And just think about those who depend on their adsense money because it is their only source of income!

Wouldn't you be addicted to adsense too?

I'm $4 Away From The $100 Minimum Needed To Get An Adsense Payment Next Month!

I checked my adsense numbers today and see that I am around $4 away from making the $100 minimum that I need to be able to get an adsense payment next month!

Actually I was kind of shocked because for the past 2 months my numbers were a little bit lower than I wanted them to be. One of the reasons for the low numbers is that "robots.txt" thing that caused me to lose a few days of adsense earnings.

I have also been experimenting with moving my adsense ads around and putting higher-paying keyword content into my sites.

I have to emphasize that you do NOT need a lot of sites and/or a lot of traffic to generate at least the $100 minimum needed to get an adsense payment the next month.

So if you have one blog and you are discouraged I hope this blog post helps to motivate and inspire you!

While there are no adsense ads on this blog you visit one of my other blogs such as The Blog Consultant blog or my "Free Things That I Have Found On The Internet" blog.

Update! - Just 4 hours laters I was able to meet the minimum $100 needed to get an adsense payment next month!

I am showing you these numbers to help show you and prove to you that you do NOT need a whole lot of traffic to your site to at least earn the $100 minimum needed to get an adsense payment the next month!

Also too as you can see from the picture above my average cpm rate is not that shabby either! But of course I'm working on increasing that as well!

Also if you remember from some of my past posts I have said that I try to work on getting at least a 10% CTR- so I'll have to work on that some more too!

Main / Sole Source Of Income....

You may find this hard to believe but there are people out there who depend on their adsense earnings as their main or sole source of income.

I don't think that there is anything wrong with that but you certainly would have to be able to earn a lot of adsense money if you were going to use that money to live on!

It's not an impossible task, here is a link to one of my most popular blog posts about how much money some people have been making with adsense:

It's A Little Too Early To Speculate But..............

I was looking at the month and trying to guess-ti-mate when the next adsense payment will come during this month - July 2008 - so I looked for past months that have the same date format as July 2008. May 2007 has the exact same layout and when I checked I got my "payment in progress" line on May 23rd!

Dare I hope that the same thing will happen on July 23rd 2008?
