Payment Received And Some Of It Already Spent!

Just wanted to let everyone know that my adsense payment was received and I have already spent a good portion of it!

In fact, I was having so much fun spending money that I just didn't have the time to post about actually receiving the payment.

As a matter of curiousity, my "PIP" was received on a Friday which meant that I didn't actually get the payment until the next business day which was Monday!

According to my calculations, the "payment in progress" line for Novemeber 2008 is estimated to be on November 27th!

Payment in Progress!

Well, there it is! A "payment in progress" line on my adsense account!

Of course on the "sad" side since the "PIP" line just showed today, that means that I won't actually have it until Monday at the least! It's gonna be a long wait!

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

Unfortunately (for us in the US) that may mean a longer waiting time before our own "PIP" will show up!

Even though I posted in a past post that the estimated time for the "payment in progress" line to show up would be around the 27th of this month (based on a month with a similar date layout) there's still hope that the "PIP" line may show up for us in the US tomorrow - I base that on the fact that there is already a "payment in progress" sighting.

If it does show up tomorrow then unfortunately that means that the earliest that I would be actually able to spend the money would be Monday! - 3 days away!

I Made It Past The $100 Mark!

Actually I reached the $100 mark a few days ago but I was just too tired to post!

A lot of people have been posting about how disappointed they are with their adsense numbers and I have to admit that my own numbers are low as compared to what they usually are! So I'm going to work on adding more high-paying keyword content to my blogs.

One Of The Most Frequently Asked Questions Seems To Be.......

Why do I have clicks but no earnings?

The most basic answer to this is that if you are getting clicks but no earnings then that means that Adsense is counting those clicks as invalid!

Another, more remote, possibility is that the ads that have been clicked are public service ads of which you don't get paid for.

One of the main reasons why public service ads may be appearing on your site is that the adsense spiders can't find any content on your site that would appeal to advertisers.

Being Able To Track Your Adsense Ads On Your Blog.......

If you are using's newest layout / format then you should know that you have the option of letting place the adsense ads in your blog (first you have to give them permission to do so).

I did this with one of my newer blogs, Different Blog Layouts, because since that blog is about different blog layouts I constantly have to change / tweak the additional gadgets / widgets that appear on that blog - so I opted for letting adsense add the ads.

However I wondered how I would be able to track the ads since there was no customized channel name given to the blog. I found the solution (so far) and that is to give the site its own tracking channel by adding the url of the site / blog! You can do this by "adding a new url" when you go to the channels portion of your adsense account set up!

Once your blog starts to get visitors (and clicks) then it will show up on your adsense reports!

I'm A Little Past The Halfway Mark For This Month - So Far!

Was looking at my adsense numbers today and noticed that I am just a little bit past the half-way mark towards earning at least the $100 minimum needed to get an adsense payment next month!

I have noticed that there have been a lot of people posting about their adsense numbers going way down! I, too have noticed it on my own adsense numbers but if I got to the half-way mark already then that is a GOOD sign!

How Do I Paste The Adsense Ads On My Blog?

This could get kind of complicated because first we don't know if you
are using Blogger's newest layout or their old one.

If you're using their newest layout then you can let add
the adsense ads (after you give them permission to do so) for you at
either the bottom of your blog posts or by adding a new gadget /
widget on the side of your blog.

However if you are using Blogger's older version then it gets a little
more complicated in that first you have to decide where you want to
place the ads. After you decide then it's a matter of copying and
pasting your adsense ads in the RIGHT place on your blog's template.

A Little Experiment!

Besides being an Adsense Consultant I am also a SEO Consultant as well and I have been noticing for the past 3 days that this blog has been ranked #1 when the term adsense consultant is typed into Google's search engine.

I'm getting an inkling as to how this is being made possible - but I can't say for sure yet.

Like with all great SEO techniques it requires some experimentation to see if I am right about this!
