Payment In Progress! December 2009!




Well as you can see I got my "PIP" (payment in progress) line today! That means that I will have some Google Adsense money to spend BEFORE Christmas!

There was a speculation about whether or not us Google Adsense publishers would be receiving our Google Adsense earnings before Christmas day. But it has been brought to my attention that those that get their Google Adsense earnings by regular check won't actually be getting their Google Adsense money until after Christmas.

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Well, There Has Been A Payment In Progress Sighting!



I checked the related adsense boards to see if anyone posted about getting their "PIP" line and indeed someone posted that they got theirs! Someone who posted that they were from Michigan posted that they got their Adsense "payment in progress" line posted today on their adsense account.

Now I went and checked my own google adsense account and there was no "PIP" line there - yet! But once someone starts posting that they got their "payment in progress" line I know that (hopefully) my own adsense payment shouldn't be too far behind!

Hopefully I'll get it BEFORE Christmas so that I can spend it BEFORE Christmas.

Also a popular rumor going around is that Adsense processes those who get their adsense payment by check first but Adsense themself has said that this is not true. But Adsense doesn't say how they actually process the adsense payments and Adsense also doesn't say in what order they process payments. So in the meantime that just leaves the rest of us with going through the guessing game!

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



Google Adsense



"You are scheduled to be sent a payment"........

I didn't think to look at this for a few days because I was busy working on getting my Google Adsense earning numbers up. But for some reason I decided to check my payment history - probably in the hopes that the "payment in progress" line would be showing in my Google Adsense account (which it didn't

But I did see the message below:



This means that the Google Adsense payment process has begun! This doesn't mean that the "payment in progress" line is showing yet. It just means that for those that have Google Adsense on their sites that the process for processing the payments has begun.

I'm encouraged by the fact that this message is showing on the 19th of the month because in previous months when this message was shown at around the same time it meant that we got our Google Adsense payments earlier than usual.

Add to that the fact that there is the hope that we will get our Google Adsense payments BEFORE Christmas that just makes the whole topic of when we will get our Google Adsense payments more popular at the moment.

I'll keep my eyes out for that first "PIP" posting!

Working To Bring Those Adsense Earnings Up!



If your Google Adsense earnings are down and you want to work to make your Google Adsense earnings go up then you have to identify your Adsense "problem areas!

Take a look at the screenshot below:



These are my Adsense numbers for today - so far!

Take a look at my adsense click-thru-rate. As an adsense publisher my goal for Adsense click thru rate is to have at least a 10% ctr on my adsense earnings. Now there have been times when my adsense click through rate has been higher and there have been times when my adsense click-thru-rate has been lower. But as you can see from the screenshot I am pretty much within my Adsense click thru rate goals.

How do you get a high adsense click thru rate? To get a high click through means that a good portion of the people that visit your adsense site are clicking on your adsense ads. That may be because the adsense ads that are appearing on your site are relative to the content on your site OR the adsense ads on your site are NOT relative to the content on your site BUT the adsense ads that are appearing on your site are interesting enough that they are being clicked on anyway.

Now take a look at the ecpm which means the estimate cost per click. That number means that the average price of the clicks are getting are in that number range. So this is another good example of how adsense publishers can incorporate higher-paying keywords into the content of their site so that they can earn more money per Adsense ad that gets clicked on their site.

If your Adsense earnings are down don't whine or complain about it.

Do something about it!

Are Your Adsense Earnings Down?



The Adsense Consultant


Are your Google Adsense earnings down? Then don't worry because you are not alone! I have seen many board postings from Adsense publishers who have posted about how their adsense earnings have gone way down! Even my own adsense earnings have decreased!

But instead of whine and complain though I decided to do something about it!

There are 2 ways to increase your Adsense earnings:

  • The first way is to increase the traffic to your Adsense site. Get those traffic numbers up! Install one of the free stat tracking widgets so that you can see where your traffic is coming from! I have them on my own sites and I recommend them to my clients as well. These traffic widgets will show you where your traffic is coming from. For example with my own tracking stats I can tell that about half of my traffic comes from the search engines and the other half comes from traffic that came to my sites from places that I have posted to.

  • The 2nd way to increase your Google Adsense earnings is to incorporate more higher-paying keyword content into your site. There are a few high-paying keywords that pay as much as $100 per click! I have a high-paying keyword list of my own and it is this exact same list that I am using now to incorporate more high-paying keyword content into my (and my clients') sites.

    You can either use these high-paying keywords as the basis of your site or you could take the higher-paying keywords and incorporate into a site that you have already made.

    I also provide a service where I take a client's site and find the most popular search terms that are related to the client's site. With this list of the most popular search terms I incorporate these popular search terms into the client's site (or I provide them with the list of popular search terms and they incorporate those popular search terms into their own sites themselves). I am also doing this for my own sites as well.

    You would probably be surprised and amazed at the number of people who are searching for the most simplest of terms and phrases. For example did you know that over 2 Million people typed in the word "adsense" in a search engine last month? That is a lot of people! Now since my blog is about being an Adsense Consultant I want to get as much of that traffic coming to this blog as possible! In fact I have noted here and on my The SEO Consultant Blog about how important it is to rank high in the search engines if you want more traffic to come to your site or blog. More traffic to your site (that has Adsense on it) means the more potential clicks you will get on your Adsense ads!

    Another search term that has had over 1 Million searches is the term "making money online". It seems that a lot of people are interested in being able to make money online. Now remember that these are search terms that are associated with my blog and since Adsense is one of the great ways to earn money online visitors may come to my site seeking more information about how to make money online since I mention how the Google Adsense program is a great way to be able to make money online.


So if your Adsense earnings are down Do something about it!

Is It Possible To Get A High Click Through Rate With Adsense?



Is it possible to get a high click through rate with an Adsense Ad? Just take a look at the screen shot below!




Here you see a click through rate of over 90% from one of my client's blogs!

So YES it is possible to get a high click through rate!

How Is My High-Paying Keyword List Working?



I posted this on my original Adsense Consultant blog:



It seems that there has been a little cosmetic change to your Adsense account!

It seems that Adsense has changed the way your Adsense account page looks. According to their blog they assure us Adsense publishers that these changes do not affect the way our Adsense earnings are calculated.

Did you already see this? If not, take a look at the screen shot below:




As you can see the top portion of the screenshot shows the way your Adsense page looked BEFORE Adsense changed it. The top of your adsense page used to say "Today's Earnings" but NOW it says "Today's ESTIMATED Earnings!

According to Adsense this change that they have made will not affect your Adsense earnings.

Basically what they are saying is that your adsense earnings aren't officially tabulated until your adsense earning numbers are verified (which usually occurs around the 10th of the next month before they send your Adsense payment).

I can honestly say that I have seen this happen on my own Adsense account where at the end of the month there will be an Adsense earning total but by the 10th of the next month that Adsense earning number has changed - in my case it changed to a higher number - thank goodness.

A more detailed explanation of this can be found on the official Adsense blog by clicking here.




But after posting this on my blog I noticed that I also got a screenshot of my Adsense earnings for earlier this afternoon so I decided to include it on this blog as well.

Mind you this is how much I have earned so far today!

I have been browsing some of the adsense-related message forums and have taken notice about how a lot of people have been posting about how bad their adsense earnings are getting. Some of the adsense publishers are experiencing very low adsense earnings so far this month (and some adsense publishers have even said that their adsense earning numbers were lower even before this month of December 2009!)

Going from my past blog posts I can honestly say that my adsense earning revenue has increase and I'm accounting that to the fact that I am using more higher-paying keyword content on my sites. Another thing that I'm doing is that I have made a list of the most used traffic search terms for my particular sites and I am also using those search terms in my sites so that will help increase the traffic to my sites.

Increased traffic to one's adsense site means more potential clicks on the Adsense ads which means more potential Adsense earnings!

I understand getting frustrated and / or angry about one's Adsense earnings being so low but if you want your Adsense earnings to increase you're going to have to do something about it - which is what I am doing for myself and for my clients as well!

High Paying Keywords - Do They Work? ABSOLUTELY!



High paying keywords - Do they really work? I'll let you judge for yourself!

Below you will see the results that I have gotten so far today:



As you can see from the screenshot above, I actually earned $3 for one click! (Actually it was over $3! for just one click!



I have been blogging lately about using more higher paying keywords into the content of my sites and it looks like it is working very well! $3 (over $3) for one click is a very, very good sign of a high paying keyword!

There is a second line where I earned over $1 for a single click on one of my Adsense ads too!

Higher paying keywords earn you more money per click!

I have been using some of the high paying keywords that I have on my own High Paying Keyword List and it looks as though it is working out very well!

Will We Get An Adsense Payment Before Christmas?



There's a very popular topic of discussion going on on one of the Google Adsense message boards. Someone asked the question of whether or not the Google Adsense publishers would be receiving their Google Adsense payments BEFORE Christmas. (The person that posted this message was anxious to start spending his Google Adsense money for Christmas)

Well the answer to that question is really hard to say! From my personal experience at being one of the Google Adsense publshers, I have received my Google Adsense payments before Christmas Day for the past 3 years! However it's been on different days and I really think that it depends on what the format of the month is. For instance I have received my Google Adsense payment as early as the 21st of December and as late as the 24th of December! It's really going to depend on the format of this December month.

Here are my own personal Google Adsense payment history statistics:

December 2006 my Google Adsense payment was issued on the 21st - which was quite early now that I think about it!

December 2007 my Google Adsense payment was issued on the 24th - one day BEFORE Christmas!

December 2008 my Google Adsense payment was issued on the 22nd of the month.

The format of December 2009 roughly is similar to December 2008 when I got my Google Adsense payment on the 22nd of the month. Notice that I say similar and not exact! Since the formats are not exact that could mean that the Google Adsense payment could come earlier or it could come later! And since the Adsense payment in progress process is so unpredictable this could also mean that we might get our Google Adsense payment AFTER Christmas - so it is really just too hard to say! - Sorry!

My Sites Are Ranked #1 AND #2!



Right on the heels of me finding out that my using using my higher-paying keywords list more often on my sites has resulted in getting a higher ecpm number, I know found out that both of my Adsense Consulting blogs are ranked #1 AND #2 respectively!

Woo Hoo!

Getting both the top rankings out of over a million sites was no easy feat!

As a search engine optimization consultant (SEO for short) it is very important that I practice what I preach. Getting a high search engine ranking is not easy for most people. There have been some who have managed to get very high search engine rankings with little or no effort but the majority of us have to work at it!

Below are my current search engine results for Monday, November 30, 2009:



You can also check my search engine rankings periodically by clicking here.

As a SEO Consultant, I have to tell you that maintaing a high ranking in the search engines is also a very hard thing to do! You have to remember that there are constantly new sites coming online everyday and they will also be fighting to get into the search engines and that will mean even more competition for your own website or blog as far as getting high search engine rankings go!

Of course the higher your site ranks in the search engines the more likely you'll get more visitors to your site and if you have Adsense on your site then that means the more likely clicks you will get and the more money you will earn with the Adsense program!

There is so much competition to get high search engine rankings. Not only do businesses want them so do individuals who have their own websites or blogs! Of course you want your site(s) to be popular. The more visitors you get to your site the higher your traffic numbers and you could charge even more money to direct advertisers to advertise on your site(s). Of course there are some people that just want to have more visitors to their site and aren't really concerned with the monetary aspect of it. And there is nothing wrong with that either.

Of course this need for high search engine rankings has produced a few "bad apples" as well! There are ways that one can get high search engine rankings that are really not legitimate (they work but they aren't legitimate) and you risk the possibility of your site being banned by some of the search engines. But some of these tactics do work which really makes it harder for those with legitimate sites to get high search engine rankings. I have seen many postings online from people who have legitimate sites but they complain that their sites have a low ranking in the search engines and those sites that rank higher than theirs really have nothing to do with the search terms being used but yet and still they still rank more higher than the more legitimate sites.

So far in my opinion the only way is to "fight fire with fire here! Unfortunately that means that you're going to have to work at it.

If you want your site to get higher search engine rankings you are going to have to follow the advice that I give in my SEO Consultant blog and that is to do a search using the keywords that you want your site to be associated with. Look at the results of your search engine rankings. If you don't like where your site is ranking then you should take a look at those sites that are appearing higher in the rankings than your own site is. They are your competition for higher rankings. And if you want your site to be ranked higher than theirs then you are going to have to "OUT RANK them! Mostly this will involve working with the content that is already on your site but it also means that you will have to use other (legitimate) tactics as well!

Some Of My Results Using My High-Paying Keywords List!







The above picture shows the results that I have been getting using my high-paying keyword list! As you can see the results are pretty good! The majority of my ecpm numbers are $100 or above!

This means that the higher my cpm is the more money that I will earn per click!

Some of the more higher-paying keywords that I have been using can be incorporated into one's site if they know how to do it right! You can make a blog post and use high-paying keywords while still staying within the topic matter of your website or blog.

Of course another idea is that you could create a blog or website using one (or more) of the higher-paying keywords to earn even more money with the Adsense program. There have been a lot of people using this method to earn more money with the Adsense program.



As a side note I also noticed that my click-thru rate is getting much better! There is even one site of mine that got a click-thru rate of over 90%! I have had click-thru rates of 100% and even over 100%! This doesn't happen all the time but and I really think that it has to do with the subject matter of the site. The more interested that people are in the content of your website or blog the more likely they are to click on the ads that appear on your website or blog!

That's probably why the higher-paying keywords pay so much to advertise!

My PIP Has Arrived!




Time to do a happy dance!



So my "payment in progress" has arrived for the month of November 2009!

There's a rumor going around that Adsense wanted to get the "PIP" 's into peoples' accounts so that they could have money to spend by Black Friday!

Saturday, November 21, 2009

There Has Been A Payment In Progress Sighting!



I can't believe it!

There has been a "payment in progress" posting by actually 2 people who have posted that they had gotten their "PIP" line yesterday - Friday! I was really shocked to see this because the "payment in progress" lines usually don't show this early in the month. However this does look to be one of those "short" months with the week of the month having only 2 days!

So one person that posted didn't post their location so I don't know if they live inside or outside the United States.

The other person that posted lives in the US Midwest - however I don't know if they get their Adsense payment by check or by bank transfer.

So be on the lookout on Monday to see if your "payment in progress" line is showing in your Adsense account!

Friday, November 20, 2009

The Payment In Progress Process Has Begun!



How do I know this? Because when I checked into my Adsense account today that familiar message box was showing:



This means that at least the "payment in progress" (PIP) process has begun for this month of November 2009.

Now I did some comparisons with months that had a similar date format to this month and it seems that the "PIP" showed up a lttle bit more early than the 25th of the month. Unfortunately though just because it has done that in the past doesn't mean that it will automatically happen again this month - so I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping for the best!

A Pleasant (And Profitable) Surprise!



I have been doing some experimenting with my high-paying keywords list and went to check my Adsense numbers today and got a very pleasant surprise!





Usually at around this time of the month I am trying to get at least to the half-way point - meaning earning at least $50 - so that I still have the rest of the month to earn the minimum $100 needed in order to get an Adsense payment the next month!

Well like I said I am doing some experimenting with my own high-paying keyword list just to keep myself updated on what the highest-paying keywords are. I have used some of these high-paying keywords on both my and my clients' blogs just to see if it was possible to earn even more than the average for this time of the month!

I checked my own numbers and I am definitely past the half way mark! In fact I have earned over the minimum amount needed to get an Adsense payment for next month - and I still have the rest of the month to go!

Well you know what this means don't you? I'm off to put more higher-paying keywords in my blog posts! Maybe I could even double my current earnings before the month is out and use that money for more Christmas presents!

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Well The "Payment In Progress" Process Has Begun!





Well it looks as though the "PIP" (payment in progress) process has finally begun!

A lot of us Adsense publishers were getting worried because its so late in the month! An actual thread was started because the Adsense "payment in progress" line wasn't showing up. But now I'm happy to say that it has shown up now!

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

I Made It Past The $100 Mark!




Well tonight is just getting better and better!

As you can see, I made it slightly past the half-way mark. That means that I will be getting an Adsense payment next month.

You can probably also see that my numbers are quite low - although I am proud of the cpm earnings that I am getting! There have even been a few times when I have gotten $1 per click! I have been working on using some of the more higher-paying keywords that are in my higher-paying keywords listing and it looks like that is paying off!

"You Are Scheduled To Be Sent A Payment This Month......."




Well I saw this message on my Adsense account page today and that means that the payment process has begun!

According to past months with the same kind of date format it looks as though I won't be seeing a "payment in progress" until Monday which will be the 26th of the month.


Now this doesn't have to be written in stone (actually I'm hoping that I will get my "PIP" much, much earlier than that!

(Remember the average estimated date that the "payment in progress" line shows up is on the 25th of the month and unfortunately the 25th of October 2009 falls on a Sunday!)

Monday, October 12, 2009

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




Well as you can see I have made it slightly past the $50 halfway mark. This means that I still have the rest of the month of October to earn at least $50 more in order t meet the $100 minimum needed to get an Adsense payment for next month!

So far I have managed to get an Adsense check every month this year (as you can probably tell from my previous blog posts )

It's really ironic because I was looking at my Adsense numbers over the weekend and was feeling kind of low. But for some unknown reason my Adsense earnings took quite a jump from the weekend!

I have to say that my click-thru-rate is kind of disappointing (but it will just be that much more fun to increase that again) but my ecpm numbers look good though!

Adsense Will Be Down For Maintenance This Saturday!



Again, the Adsense site will be down for maintenance this Saturday.

Here is what is on the Adsense site page:

On 10/10/09, our engineers will be performing site maintenance from approximately 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM PDT.

Thursday, September 24, 2009

Payment In Progress! September 2009!




As you can see, I got my "PIP" line!


This means that the "payment in progress" process has begun for September 2009!

Usually I report about seeing a "PIP" sighting BUT I saw the "payment in progress" line in my own Adsense account before I started looking for "payment in progress" sightings.

If you read my previous blog post you will see that I made an estimate (based on a past month with the same date format) that the "PIP" line would show up on the 23rd - which was yesterday. I'm looking at that past month and it seems that there is one more day in that month. Could that be why the "payment in progress" line appeared a day later than I calculated?

As you can see I'm still trying to figure out the "payment in progress" process - but so far I haven't figured it out yet.

"Payment In Progress" - Just In Case You Are Wondering........



There haven't been any "PIP" sightings yet for this month of September 2009!


It still may be a little early in the "payment in progress" game because today is the 23rd! According to my obsessive calculations of a past month that has the same date format as September 2009 there was a "PIP" on the 23rd of the month.

This is the 23rd of the month so that just means that you can't really rely on past months that have the same kind of date format.

There hasn't been anyone reporting any signs of a "payment in progress" note on their Adsense account as of yet............

But I will keep my eyes open for that first sighting!

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

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




Well this finally turned up in my Adsense account today! What this means is that the payment process has begun - although technically I thought it would begin on the 16th of the month which is the day AFTER all holds have to be checked / verified.

I am a little concerned because this message is appearing quite later than usual - I seem to remember on average it showing up on the 19th - average-wise.

However to make this even more complicated, I did some checking and I looked for a similar month in the past that has the same date format as this month - September 2009.

I found a similar month and noted that the "payment in progress" line appeared on the 23rd of the month which is tomorrow!

So I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Monday, September 21, 2009

I Made It Past The $100 Mark!





Well as you can see I just barely made it past the $100 mark for this month. That means that I will be getting an Adsense payment next month (I'm still waiting for my Adsense payment for this month! - LOL!

For any of you that are making less than this per month I hope that this information helps you! There are people who are making a lot with Adsense and then again there are those who have voted in the poll saying that they have made less than $10 a month with Adsense. For you - I say that those numbers can be improved! You just have to learn how to optimize your site more to get more of an Adsense income!

Friday, September 11, 2009

I Made It Past The Halfway Mark!




Well as you can see, I made it past the halfway mark! What this means is that I have earned at least half of the amount that is required to get an Adsense payment for next month. Just in case you didn't know you have to earn at least $100 during the month before Adsense will send you a payment.

This means that I still have the rest of the month to go to earn at least $50 more!

As you can see from the screenshot my Adsense numbers are going up and down all over the place which means its hard to say what is "average".

So look at my numbers and compare them to your own whether your numbers are higher or lower.

The Adsense Site Will Be Down For Maintenance Today!

This upcoming Saturday, the Adsense site will be down for maintenance from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM PDT.

So for about 4 hours on Saturday the adsense site will be down.

During these maintenance schedules Adsense assures its publishers that while they are still earning their adsense money, they will not be able to check their adsense account(s) while the Adsense site is down.

Adsense Has A Facebook Site!



Just in case you're curious or are already a Facebook member, Adsense has its own Facebook site as well!

My PIP Has Arrived!




As you can see, my "PIP" / "payment in progress" has finally arrived today!

Kind of odd too (although its greatly welcomed!) because I checked my Adsense numbers earlier today and was disappointed not to see my "PIP" line. So I thought that I would head over to the discussion boards to see what other people were saying and what I found out was that only so far those who were getting paid by regular check were getting their "payment in progress" lines. Another person posted said that they 'spect it would come on Wednesday - since they were a "senior" member I kind of resolved myself to the fact that maybe they were right and I resigned myself to thinking that I wouldn't get my "PIP" until Wednesday - thus not getting able to spend the money until Thursday (unless one knows Rose's secret for being able to spend her Adsense money earlier!

Being the obsessive person that I am, I decided to check my Adsense numbers a few hours later and guess what! - my "payment in progress" line is there!

Just goes to show you that sometimes even the "experts" or "seniors" can be wrong!

Thursday, August 20, 2009

"You Are Scheduled To Be Sent A Payment This Month......."




Well this showed up in my Adsense account today and it means of course that the "payment in progress" process has begun! It doesn't mean that the "PIP" has showed up in my Adsense account yet - it just means that I am scheduled to be sent a payment this month and it is being acknowledged in my Adsense account!

August 2009 is a funnily formatted month! I highly doubt that I will be seeing a "payment in progress" line before this weekend! Since the average "PIP" date is around the 25th of the month, we'll just have to wait until next week to see that "payment in progress" line.

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

I Made It Past The $100 Mark!




I'm starting to like this very much because it means that I am reaching that $100 minimum goal more sooner in the month than in past months! It also means that I still have the rest of this month - August 2009 - to accumulate even more Adsense earnings!

I have also come to find out that even those sites that have more traffic than me doesn't necessarily mean that those sites are making more money than my sites are! For example someone posted that their sites get over 400 visitors a day and still they only manage to make $20 at the very least with Adsense!

That shows me that even with my small amount of traffic that I am still at least doing something right since I have been able to make it to the $100 minimum before the month is over!

It just goes to show you that you don't have to have a huge amount of traffic to make some Adsense money!

You just have to know how to maximize and optimize your site for the Adsense program!

I Made It Past The Halfway Mark!


I took a look at my Adsense numbers / earnings today and pleasantly found out that I had made it past the halfway mark!

This is good news to me because it means that I have reached the halfway mark quite more earlier in the month and it also means that I still have the rest of the month left to make the $100 minimum needed to get an Adsense payment the next month!

I hope that this encourages people to see that it is possible to make at least the minimum amount of $100 that is needed to get an Adsense payment during the next month.

So far according to my poll numbers, there are more people who have said that they have earned less than $10 during a given month as far as their Adsense earnings are concerned.

I hope these numbers of mine encourage you!

I Finally Got My "Payment In Progress" Line!




As you can see, I finally got my "PIP" notice for my Adsense!

Thanks to Rose, I'll be able to spend part of that Adsense money today!




So I'm very, very happy!

PS - Is it just me or are these "payment in progress" lines coming more later in the month?

Here's An Update On The "Payment In Progress" Process....



Well it seems that some of those who get their Adsense payments by check here in the US have already gotten their "PIP". Maybe it has something to do with being able to receive checks before the month runs out? The people that were posting that they got their "payment in progress" notes as far as getting an Adsense payment by check, posted this Friday of last week!

Now there are some posts from those in India who are posting that they are receiving their "payment in progress" lines as of today, July 27, 2009!

Of course India operates on a different time zone - but hopefully this will be good news to those of us who are still waiting for that "PIP" line to show up!

There Has Been A Payment In Progress Sighting For July 2009!



Apparently there have been a few people in the US who have gotten their "PIP" note in their Adsense account today! So far from what I can tell, these people are getting their Adsense payments via check.

At least this lets me (and you) know that at least the payment process has begun for the Adsense payments this month!

Let's keep our fingers crossed that it comes soon! (and hopefully before the weekend!)

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


I didn't think to look for this until today but it is showing up on my Adsense account. This means (in my honest opinion) that they payment process has begun! Although the exact "PIP" term may not be showing in your Adsense account I am assuming that once one receives the "you are scheduled for a payment...." announcement then the payment process has begun!

Although there haven't been any reports of a "payment in progress" sighting yet - the question has been brought up as to whether or not anyone has received their "PIP" noting yet and so far the answer seems to be "NO".

While I can surely understand why people are anxious to get their Adsense payments I have to thank Rose for letting me know just how to be able to spend my Adsense money just a little bit earlier than one is supposed to. Let's hear it for banking loopholes! This time it's working in my favor!

I Made It Past The $100 Mark!




As you can see I have made it to the $100 minimum amount! I have noticed that this time I have gotten to this point a little bit more earlier in the month then I have in the past few months - which means things are looking up because I still have the rest of the month to go!

A lot of people are posting that they are seeing their Adsense incomes decreasing. Mine are looking up!

Good luck on your Adsense Earnings this month!

My PIP Has Arrived!



Well my "payment in progress" line has arrived! Usually it does come around the 25th of the month but notice I said usually! Sometimes it has come as early as the 23rd and as late as the 29th!

So if I got my "PIP" then it shouldn't be too long before you get yours!

There's Been A Payment In Progress Posting!



There has been a "PIP" posting and it looks as though those in India who are getting their Adsense payments via check are posting that they have received their "payment in progress" lines already.

Hopefully this means that those of us in the Untited States can't be too far behind?

I Made It Past The $100 Mark!




As you can see from the picture on the right, I have earned past the $100 minimum needed to get an Adsense payment next month! This comes as good news because after what can only be called a "slump", it looks as though my earnings are inching up again! I say this because this I have reached the $100 minimum more earlier in the month than last month. So hopefully this is a good sign of things to come!

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

Well as you can see I have made it to the halfway mark! That means I'm halfway to the minimum needed to get an Adsense payment next month.

Actually it seems that I'm doing a little better than last month and for that I am grateful and we'll see what the rest of the month has in store for me!

Payment In Progress! May 2009!




Just thought you all should know that I finally got my "Payment In Progress" line on my Adsense account!

Apparently others in the US are receiving them too and everybody is quite excited!



They have been coming quite late in the month recently but we just came out of a three-day holiday and at least it is there now!
