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!

I Made It Past The $100 Mark!

As you can see I made it past the $100 mark! That means that I have earned enough to get an Adsense payment next month plus I still have the rest of the month to go!

This is not my most prosperous month by far but I'm doing a lot better than a lot of others who have Adsense on their sites. It seems that us Adsense earners are experiencing decreases in what we generally make per month using Adsense.

I do have a few ideas as to how to increase my Adsense earnings and they include using higher-paying keywords and increasing the traffic to my sites.

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

Someone in India posted that they got their "PIP" for May 2009! Alas since this is the Memorial Day weekend I don't expect to see a "payment in progress" line on my own Adsense account until Tuesday - which is a few days away.

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

Well this little bit of information finally showed up in my Adsense account today when I was checking my Adsense earnings.

Compulsive-obsessive that I am, I'm a little disappointed that this didn't show up on the 18th of the month because usually it takes a week between the time this message shows up and the actual time that we receive a "payment in progress" note.

Another reason for my concern is that the 25th comes on Memorial Day for May of 2009 and since that is a holiday and also a bank holiday, it may further delay when we actually see a "PIP" line in our Adsense account.

Now last month (April 2009) the Adsense payment came very late during the month and it was explained by Adsense that the reason was because of their being some bank holidays during the month which further delayed the receiving of our Adsense earnings.

So who know what this month will bring!

The monthly wait for the Adsense earnings has begun!

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

As you can see, I have made it just past the halfway mark for this month! Since this is the 13th of the month that means that I still have the rest of the month to make the minimum $100 needed to get an Adsense payment for next month!

My basic numbers have gone down and I'm not too happy with my CTR but my CPM's are at least over $10!

And I'm pretty that I will at least make the $100 minimum needed to get an Adsense payment next month.

With the exception of the first 2 months that I belonged to Adsense, I have always made at least the $100 minimum needed to get an Adsense payment the next month and I am not going to break that record!

Saturday, May 16th 2009 - The Adsense Site Will Be Down For Maintenance!

According to the the powers that be:

"On Saturday, 5/16/09, our engineers will be performing site maintenance from approximately 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM PDT."

So that means that on Saturday, the Adsense site will be down while their engineers will be performing site maintenance.

Another 15 Days! - At Best!

Because the adsense payments were so late last month, I decided to do some calculations about this month! It doesn't look too promising though!

According to my calculations we won't be seeing an Adsense payment for the month of May 2009 until the 26th at best!

It has been said that Adsense usually pays on the last Tuesday of each month and even though there have been times when the "payment in progress" line has shown up before the last Tuesday of the month I think that is safe to assume that this won't necessarily happen all of the time!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the Adsense payments will come a bit sooner! (Hopefully to make up for getting such a late payment last month!)
