Need An Adsense Consultant?

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, Adsense has a new help message forum and while I'm still trying to get used to it, I'm having problems posting to the forum. So here is a reply that I tried to post there:

If you do a search you will find that there are quite a bit of Adsense Consultants out there!

But you do have to bear in mind that you want to be careful when hiring one because you will privy them to very sensitive personal information about your account.

Exactly what kind of problem(s) are you having with getting your adsense ads to appear?

Also too while what the other person said about your having competitor ads appear on your site, you can always use section-targeting to target only specific content on your site so that you can keep the competitor ads down to a minimum.

When you're looking for an Adsense Consultant you have to remember that in order for them to place the adsense ads on your site you are going to have to give them access to your adsense account - something that you want to be very careful about!.

hi ,i have website and i want to select a optimized positions for displaying adsense ad in my website

There are countless sites online that purport to have the best Adsense optimized positions but if you would like to contact me as a client, I will give you the best places to put your Adsense ads - information that has been provided by Adsense themself!

Adsense's New Message Forum - A Big Thumbs Down!

at least that's just my own personal opinion!

Adsense has a new forum and you can access it by clicking here.

Maybe I just don't like change! I just accessed these new forums today and so it may take me some time to get used to them but for right now I really don't like them at all.

Merry Christmas! My PIP Has Arrived!

To be quite honest I am actually shocked to see my "payment in progress" line today!

If you want to know the specifics, first I checked out the Payment in Process message board just to see if anyone in the U.S had posted that they got their "PIP" for December 2008 yet - and come to find out that they had!

So that's when I checked my own Adsense account and the "PIP" line was there!

Merry Christmas!

Well I FINALLY Made It To $100! - Barely!

As you can see from the screenshot above, I have made it to the $100 point - plus a little bit more!

I have to tell you that my numbers are down about 40%. But I have been thinking about it and I realize that I am grateful for the adsense money that I am getting! I was thinking about that when I saw on someone else's blog that there have been people who have had adsense for over a year and still haven't earned enough to get an adsense payment yet!

Although this is one of my lowest earnings months since I first started using Adsense I do still have the rest of the month to go to earn more adsense money!

There's Been A Payment In Progress Posting!

Personally I was quite surprised!

Someone in the UK has already posted that they have received the "PIP" line on their adsense account!

Of course it is also mentioned that this person is receiving their adsense payment by regular check.

It takes a lot longer to actually get your adsense payment if you are getting it by check as opposed to if you were getting it via bank transfer.

Last year at this time there was a big discussion going on about how Adsense had to get the payments out before the end of the year for tax reasons AND so that the people that worked at Adsense could take off for the holiday season. Mind you this was rumor and speculation!

Another factor to consider is that with the overseas publishers it takes them a lot longer to receive their adsense payment(s) and it is assumed that they will be receiving their "payment in progress" lines first. But again this is only speculation because the first reported "PIP" sighting has been from the UK (in check form)!

Bummer that the weekend is coming up (as far as the payment process goes). We should be hearing more about any further "payment in progress" sightings for this month - December 2008.

12/20/08 Latest Update(s)

Well it seems that someone in India has posted that they have gotten their "PIP" line!

So far it seems that those who are getting their adsense payments by regular check are seeing their "payment in progress" lines first!

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

This message has shown up in my adsense account stats! I have posted about this message before stating that it means that the payment in progress process has begun!

Obsessively, I have been looking at some of my previous posts about this and have seen that when I have gotten the above message, my "payment in progress" line has shown up on either the 23rd or the 24th of the month! However what makes things so iffy this month is that the Christmas holiday falls in with the "PIP" dates!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will get my adsense payment BEFORE Christmas.

What Was My Earliest Adsense Payment Date?

I was just checking my adsense payment information to compare months regarding when I got my adsense payment. It turns out that I was right all along when I mentioned about my getting my adsense payment before Christmas! However this was back in 2006 when for the month of November 2006, I got my adsense payment on December 20th! This was definitely enough time for me to do some Christmas shopping!

For November 2007, I got my adsense payment on December 24th BUT since the next day was Christmas, I didn't actually get the payment until the next business day!

Will we get our adsense payments before December 25th of this year?

Honestly speaking - who knows!

I'm At The Halfway MarK........

As you can see from this picture I am currently at the half-way / $50 mark. That means that I have the rest of the month to make at least $50 more so that I will be able to get an adsense payment the next month (January 2008).

As I have blogged about before I have seen a dramatic drop in my adsense earnings and my adsense click-through-rate. As an Adsense Consultant, I take this as a challenge as I work on getting my adsense numbers back to where they were when I was at my peak!

Basically speaking my adsense numbers are down about 40%! And to me that is a lot!

On the plus side I do know that some of the drop can be attributed to me having less sites - which I'm working on to increase!

If anything, you will see by my own adsense numbers that you do NOT have to have a lot of page impressions to at least start earning an income with adsense!

12/16/08 Update!

As of today I'm currently $17 away from making at least the $100 minimum needed in order to get an adsense payment next month!

My Adsense Earnings Are Definitely Lower!

I have to admit that like a lot of other Adsense earners, my adsense earnings have dropped too!

I can think on one very specific reason for this and that is that I have decreased the number of sites that I have with adsense ads. This isn't by choice, its just that some sites that I had hosted on one site has discontinued having member pages so I'm moving those sites to another host.

I really shouldn't complain though because I'm still making at least the $100 monthly minimum in order to get an adsense payment during the next month.

And it will probably be a lot of fun trying to get my adsense numbers back to where they were!

"Payment In Progress" for December 2008?

Just in case you're curious, I kind of estimate that my "PIP" line will show up on December 24th BUT I won't actually get my adsense earnings until AFTER the Christmas holiday!

I base this on the fact that last year I got my "payment in progress" line on December 24th, went through agony for that and Christmas Day and then had the money to spend the day after Christmas!

However I do remember that when I first starting getting my Adsense earnings that I got my "PIP" line on something like the 21st of December but since then those payment dates are getting later and later!
