Blog Income Report – May 2008

This blog income report is going to be a little different than all the previous blog income reports. For one thing, I’ve been in China since May 12 to show that you can make money online from anywhere in the world. The biggest advantage with making money on the Internet is that it doesn’t tie you down to any one location like a job or normal business can. As long as I have an Internet connection, I can log on and make money.

Making money online from China proved more difficult than I thought. China has a great firewall that blocks many western sites. The Internet seems slower here as well. This has more to do with the fact that most of the sites I visit are in the US and the servers are there than it has to do with China’s infrastructure. How did being behind the great firewall of China affect blog income? It didn’t affect it at all.

Total Blog Income for May 2008: 227,705.80 RMB

Despite the difficulties of doing business in China, the blog posted a record high income of 227,705.80 RMB, or 228 times greater than the average monthly income of a Chinese factory worker. The income converts to $32,529.40 USD. Here is the breakdown.

  • Private Ad Sales: $16,380.00
  • Affiliate Commissions: $9,757.04
  • ReviewMe: $3,000.00
  • Text Link Ads: $2,036.22
  • Kontera: $1,000.00
  • TTZ Media: $329.50
  • Subscription: $20.00
  • FeedBurner: $6.64
  • Grand Total: $32,529.40

In April, the blog posted $29,569.05 in earnings. That was the lowest income report so far this year. It’s good to see things turn around. And I did it while in China to boot! The main things responsible for the record income level were private ad sales and affiliate commissions. Thanks to new sponsors like Neverblue Ads and Market Leverage, the blog posted record high ad sales.

Traffic to the blog went up to 323,435 page views from 183,633 visitors (let’s hear it for videos!). RSS subscriptions are at record high levels and should break 26,000 in the next few days. Blog expenses for the month went down to $225.87 for contextual advertising on Google AdWords and Bidvertiser. Hosting for John Chow dot Com is sponsored by BlueFur Web Hosting (that means I don’t have to have pay for it). BlueFur provides this blog with its own dual Xeon server and awesome service. I highly recommend them. Use coupon code JohnChowRocks to get 15% off any BlueFur hosting packages.

Make Money From Anywhere In The World

The secret to making big money from anywhere in the world is to drive a lot of traffic to your blog and then turn that traffic into cash by running as many advertising options as possible while still providing a good user experience. This blog started with only Google AdSense. If I had stuck with that and nothing else, it wouldn’t be making over $1,000 per day. Check out my recommended money makers to see what ad networks I used to produce my blog income.

I also recommend you download my free eBook, Make Money Online with John Chow dot Com. The book explains the methods I used to create content, drive traffic and make the big bucks. You can get it for free by signing up for my free newsletter at the top center of the page.

Traveling the world and making money online. What could be better than this? ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Congratz m8

    You’ll keep on passing the 30K, way to go, no up to 40k!!!

    1. Congrats John! Can I borrow $400?

      1. Jacky Supit says:

        Income Report is the most post that i have been waiting for each month. So inspiring! I started my blog with no ad at all. Until now I have a good income from my blog with many balls on many baskets :). I signed up into any affiliate network one by one based on John’s Income Report, which affiliates made good money, I join them ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thanks John, I’ll be like you someday! ๐Ÿ˜‰

        1. fred xiao says:

          you have spoken all the words of mine. ๐Ÿ˜› Learn from John.

        2. AJ says:

          that’s really true, his income reports are inspiring to most bloggers, if not everyone

      2. Terry Tay says:

        Or can I borrow $32,529.40…
        …heck…you’ll probably make that again this month no problem ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜†

      3. Abdul says:

        If John keeps earning like this, soon he’ll become a millionaire!! ๐Ÿ˜†
        Haha, wonder when my blog gets me there…. ๐Ÿ˜

        1. make150aday says:

          Actually never if you spent time on this blog rather than working on your own.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. Shoemoney claims he made $40k in ad sales this month, you need to do something John so you can beat that.

      1. John Chow says:

        Shoe charges a lot more money than I do. I offer more value. ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Michael Kwan says:

          They are ripping yourself off. It’s time to jack up those rates again. ๐Ÿ™‚

          1. Sha says:

            Agreed. Make it per WEEK!

          2. Agreed….he’s still to cheap ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
            Well he can wait until i release Adsung and buy a few months advertising in advance ๐Ÿ˜‰

          3. I guess I better get in before your rates go up…again.

        2. That is the way to look at it. Congrats, it looks good. I also have enjoyed the travel a bit as it adds variety to the blog.

        3. Flimjo says:

          Well how about rakin’ in more cash?? You can charge $1000 per review and still maintain the supply of reviews you already have. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

        4. I like the fact That value comes first and money comes second. It seems that you have your priorities in order.

      2. John is offering better ROI….however, i’m sure we will see some increases to prices soon.

        Shoe is charging $2,500/review ๐Ÿ˜›

        1. Abdul says:

          $2500??? holy crap…I wonder if anyone even thinks of getting reviewed by him!

        2. Flimjo says:

          Ouch, how can that possibly have any value on the ROI front?

        3. Shoe doesn’t do reviews.

      3. Mayank Rocks says:

        Its really difficult. for 40k, its still 8k a month to go! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    3. Shaun Carter says:

      Congratulations on the May 2008 income John!

  2. Congrats.

    I’m sure you inspire people everyday with this huge blog income ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Apoorv says:

      Ofcourse, People like Us ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ’ก

  3. Dj Flush says:

    Well you are earning pretty well John! but honestly your blog is not as interesting as it used to be :S

    Useless reviews, useless talks. Huh what more can I say.

    1. John Chow says:

      Thanks for your view but you’re obviously in the minority. My traffic is up. My RSS is up. My Income is up. What more can I say? ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. Thiago Prado says:

        You’re definitely right John, he’s saying that because of the different articles you’re publishing during your trip to China. I like the way you’re sharing your experience in China with all of us.

        1. Agree! That’s something different and is quite interesting… You’re doing a good job sharing your experience with us ๐Ÿ˜‰

      2. A blog that can make $32K in one month can hardly be considered useless. The topics may not be of interest to you, but they are to a very large number of people who are interested in making money online.

      3. It’s amazing to see when you really start making some serious money how the critics show up.

      4. Pradeep says:

        you dont need to say anything mate your figures doing talking for u ๐Ÿ˜›

      5. Sha says:

        I love that some people never seem to read where it says “Miscellaneous Ramblings” at the top.

      6. Apoorv says:

        Youre probably lucky to have that ๐Ÿ™„

    2. It still offers what it aims to “Miscellaneous Ramblings of a dot com mogul”

  4. Congrats on the turn around of income!

  5. Thiago Prado says:

    Sometimes I think I should stop blogging however when you release the Income report it gives me hope to continue blogging because one day I’ll be successful too.

  6. infot says:

    Congratulations John Chow with the new record โ—

  7. Angel onewin says:

    Great News for you !
    I have read some blogger, telling that traffic was going down because of your china trip… Well Income is up That is the best proof!
    I also noticed the jump in RSS great.
    I really enjoyed the china videos.
    That’s true John chow Rocks. :mrgreen:

  8. peter bordes says:

    How much of a traffic increase have you been experiencing? Is the new traffic primarily organic?
    Have you worked with our performance marketing division at MediaTrust

  9. Ebay Blog says:

    I look forward to the day that I can report such figures to my readership….well done and a target for us all.

    1. Pradeep says:

      We all looking for same mate thats why we all are here to learn some secrets from John ๐Ÿ˜†

      1. make150aday says:

        there is no secret..
        All resources out there–
        All you gotta do is work hard rather than just relying on someone.
        Good Luck.

  10. Bloggerking says:

    C0ngRaTs J0hn You are a legend for MMO blogs.. ๐Ÿ˜›

  11. team ray says:

    wow nice rebound month john from april drop

    1. I think the income will rise next month too!

      1. Sha says:

        I’m calling it now: it will probably be somewhere between 33-34K.

  12. Woah I beat the great JC in monthly page views? Still kickn’ my ass though in blog income…hmmmmm

    1. Time to up your rates ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. artakus says:

    wow john..u maintain average 30k per month for your online income…congrats.

  14. Congrats John. You are an inspiration to millions.

  15. Total Blog Income for May 2008: 227,705.80 RMB ๐Ÿ™‚ lol congrats John Chow, your income is rising again!

  16. Congrats John….
    i has subscribed to get your ebook this morning, i has download your pdf, printed them and i reading your ebook now. It’s a great ebook i ever see. I has decided my goals. and i must get it.
    thanks Jhon for your inspiration. What’s your opinion about my blog? i decided to make it as my diary, i will write everything (not niche topic, it’s about what happen in my life). Is it a good idea (not focused) topic for monetized blog?

    1. Not really. There’s a slight chance it would work if you had a really interesting life, maybe you’re a supermodel, or a pornstar, or a billionaire, etc etc but for the most part people you don’t know won’t really care. Niche topics are always better if you’re trying to make money.

      1. Is it good to combine niche and non niche content, when i stuck idea with niche content i write non niche content. Is it a good idea? the non niche content is only for frequency post…

  17. Abdul says:

    Wow, $32,000 is big cash but seems that its been a long time since you’ve been roaming around the $30,000 mark. do you expect more or is that it?

    1. I think more, his prices are still lower then his rivals..
      John is charging $500 a review where Shoemoney is charging $2,500.

      Time to up those prices, im sure this blog will hit $40-50k by the end of the year ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Abdul says:

        Yeah i guess you’re probably right, but still $500 actually is BIG money and can only be afforded by websites about whom people like us are least concerned to know!

  18. Pangeran says:

    Wow, John.
    That’s a big figure for me!
    Anyway, I wonder how to use TLA?

    1. I also wonder about TLA. I signed up awhile back but I think you need a high Page Rank to make it work.

      1. You do. Ads are valued based on PR so if you have a low PR TLA is almost useless.

      2. PR is the essence of TLA with a few other factors to.

  19. Shams says:

    Congrtulation MAN!!! That’s a great number. I am proud of you!!!

  20. Ganesh says:

    Congratulations, John! Wow, $32,000! Keep it up and try to reach $50K per month!


  21. Shawn says:

    True enough, you have opened up my eyes on what a blog can achieve and the potential incomes a blog can make.

  22. I love this post that comes only once a month. It provides really great motivation!

    1. It should only come once a month :mrgreen: we can’t really expect weekly updates now…can we ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. Shaistav says:

    Ah! Ill get there in a few lives… Nice and congrats man!

  24. Alex D says:

    Wow, congrats man!

  25. Gary Gregory says:

    John you are truly an inspiration to us all. I have just begun this blogging experience and what better teacher to have than you. The first thing I have to do is get a hosted blog. My free site through WordPress is cool, but just like you mention in your FREE e-book, some of the sites used to monotize the blogs won’t except the free web addresses. I enjoyed your China trip BTW and the videos are a great way to look into Jon Chow’s life each day if only for a few minutes.

    Thanks again!

  26. jazz says:

    $32,529.40 !!!! O my god !! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  27. Mike Huang says:

    Another record John…and you’re not even at home! lol


    1. Pradeep says:

      Just wonder what would have been if were at home i think the figure would have been double of what it is now ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. Muscle Post says:

    Great to see how much money you can make online! This is very inspirational and I hope to be able to make even a fraction of that amount someday. I’m going to download your ebook right now…

  29. Paul B says:

    Awesome figures again John, I don’t think it would matter what you posted about from now on this blog seems to be on auto pilot and will just continue growing ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. It doesn’t matter whatever he posts ๐Ÿ™‚ “miscellaneous ramblings of a dot com mogul” which means he is still filling the critera anyway :mrgreen: ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  30. DAILYMACHO! says:

    when john says he made 9k from affiliate commissions, what does he mean by that? sorry im a noob to making money online…like can somebody show me where on his site john has these affiliate programs running…i see where he makes all his money from private ad sales but i don’t see where his affiliate programs are…thanks.

    1. team ray says:

      i see ton of them
      in his in text links

    2. Internal text links etc which are linked to words in posts ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. DAILYMACHO! says:

        so you mean like the kontera links with the double underlined links??? i thought kontera pays you based upon how many ppl click on them like google adsense.

        1. Sha says:

          No, John said a while back that he has a deal with Kontera & they pay him a flat fee of $1000 every month.

  31. Trent says:

    John, congrats!
    The important thing to take note of here is that whether it is your best month or worst, your still able to “work” in China instead of at a cubicle. Most people are still punching in a 60 hour work weeks at a a job they hate with a boss they think is an idiot. You however, get to work your tail off on something you love and get to travel the world while working! You are an inspiration to many, keep it up!

    1. Sha says:

      Yep. It’s amazing what can be done with the internet these days. 10+ years ago, who knew it would be like this…

  32. Flimjo says:

    John, have you ever thought of eliminating the RSS feed and your subscription? You made a whopping $6 from that this past month. I feel like, if you eliminated it, a chunk of those readers would still visit your blog, and you’d be able to convert their visits into WAY more cash than the measly $6 you’re getting from monetizing the feed. Your thoughts?

    1. John Chow says:

      RSS makes money from private RSS ad sales.

      1. Flimjo says:

        Good point. I didn’t see it that way.

    2. You’ve not considered “private ad sales” here ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. Congratulations John on another stellar income report.

  34. Bash Bosh says:

    Congratulations John!
    Really great to see how much you earn with your blog.
    It’s impressive also how much you make with private ad sales!
    Congratulations again!

  35. make150aday says:

    Anyone close to his income–specially those who is a huge fan of JC..

  36. Jack Little says:

    :mrgreen: Nice income on holidays John! Keep up the good work, you are a great inspiration! Any plans on visiting Norway?

  37. Jack Little says:

    Nice income report John! You are a huge inspiration! :mrgreen:

    Travelling towards Norway at a later time?

  38. Zoltan says:

    John, is this revenue coming only from your blog or from all your other projects combined?

    1. “blog income report” ๐Ÿ˜‰

      His other companies make more then the blog i.e. TTZ Media and TheTechZone.

  39. Zoltan says:

    I was asking because I made just a little more than you in May but definitely not from my blog….

    1. Flimjo says:

      Zolton, where did you make your money from?

  40. Zoltan says:

    If blog only it is remarkable. ๐Ÿ™‚ What does Private Ad Sales mean?
    Don’t you have AdSense revenue any more?

    1. John Chow says:

      Private ad sales are ads that I sell directly to an advertiser. I no longer run AdSense on this blog. I do run AdSense on other sites.

      1. make150aday says:

        which other sites John?
        Would be interested to know.
        May be we can learn about that…

  41. Gamer12 says:

    Wow! Unbelievable Congrats John. These are the rewards from your hardworks previously. Good for you

  42. Congrats John, your ebook also rocks, I hope some of your dedicated student will get where you are today, and I a one of them.

  43. I must say… wow. I am impressed. And, I agree with Mek Money Online, your eBook is a piece of art ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Congrats John! I have just started reading your post to help my blog along during it’s early stages. There is a ton of great information on here. Anyone serious about blogging knows first hand how much time and dedication it takes to get where you are.

  45. Kevin says:

    OMG John! This is an awesome report! Darn this report is making me jealous and is motivating me as well heh. I’m wondering how far to go for me to make this figure? :mrgreen: Well done John, congrats!

  46. Bibokz says:

    Good to hear that blogger earns that much while setting at his laptop.

  47. soares says:

    Men jhon im in portugal i cant do that i only know a blogger that makes some good money not so much as you but…….i want also to make that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. Terry Tay says:

    Nice monthly income John. May I ask what exactly is this for…
    Subscription: $20.00
    FeedBurner: $6.64
    Just curious that’s all ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. John Chow says:

      Subscriptions are readers who are kind enough to give me $10 every month. I have two of those. FeedBurner send ads to the RSS. As you can see, they don’t do too well.

      1. Abdul says:

        Thats also what i was wondering of. You’ve left no way of earning money… wonder you’re the Dot com Mogul!

      2. Terry Tay says:

        Thanks for the response John.

        I just realized just 2 more pennies from feedburner and you would truly be getting paid an EVIL sum $6.66 ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

        1. We’d expect no less from the evil blogger… ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

      3. Sha says:

        Interesting. I used to wonder what that was. It’s good to see that you never put all of your eggs in one basket.

      4. make150aday says:

        they could have rather donate to some charity than giving to you ๐Ÿ™‚
        I know $10 can be a lot to some one in rural China..

  49. jj says:

    Hey John, I’ve been enjoying your articles on,China \ thanks for the video of Shanghai. My good friend is in Shanghai right now setting up a factory and he says coming from NY city we have no idea what a big city really is until you go to China! He’s amazed by it. (and he can’t believe the US is complaining ๐Ÿ˜ณ about how the Chinese govt is handling the earthquake… He said it’s being handled a heck of a lot better than Katrina was handled!!) Good article thanks again. *JJ* ๐Ÿ˜›

  50. VeRonda says:

    I’m just glad that you’re willing to share, John. Everyone has an opinion and mine is that although you’re making a wonderful income for yourself, you’re helping so many people and that’s what is important. Thanks.

  51. Melvin says:

    hey you can make money from around the world online IF you have a laptop.. if you have a PC, forget it..

  52. Minal says:

    Great Goings again..How did you contact companies for Private Ad Sales or do they contact you? Any tips that you could share on how do we sell space, for how much and parameters that dictate the on…it could be a nice blog post!!

    1. John Chow says:

      I wrote an article on how to do private ad sales last month. Do a search for it.

      1. Pradeep says:

        Or Simply Download Make Money Online with John Chow there is one great Chapter On Affiliate and Private ads sells

  53. Gregory says:

    Wow! Highly impressive! I cant see me moving to China any time soon though.


  54. Stumbled ! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
    I need to push the online gas pedal further to make at least as much as what the Chinese factory worker makes!


  55. Naijaecash says:

    It is impressive the amount you generate from private ads! The advertisers must be having a great return on their investment, else they won’t have continued patronizing you.

  56. Rob says:

    I think Chow is bluffing.. like a game of poker. There is no way he is making $16,380.00 in Private Ad Sales. If you do the math on his advertise page and look around – you’ll not see the math add up. Most of the ads on this site are affiliate ads… where are the private ads John?
    And where do you hide your TLA?

    1. John Chow says:

      Now why can’t Google be like you and not see the TLA? I guess “Featured Sites” are there because I’m such a nice guy. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Here’s another idea. Affiliate companies buy private ads. You should try to sell them some and see what they say. For you, it would most likely be, “Get lost!” ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    2. Sha says:

      And exactly how much are you making from your site?

      1. Flimjo says:

        Mr. Anonymous strikes again!

  57. PChere says:

    Yet again. Amazing!

  58. Tushar says:

    Great Income from Great Blog. A lot of hard work must have gone for making your Blog so successful.

    Great Work, ๐Ÿ˜›

  59. Congrats john! Hope to see u cross the 40k mark next month!

  60. John, I have a question, as Kontera is making about $1000 per month, is this for sending people to kontera through affiliate link ? becaues I dont see actual kontera ads implemented in your posts..


    1. John Chow says:

      There are Kontera ads on this blog.

      1. Terry Tay says:

        I believe you have an agreement with Kontera that pays you $1000 a month regardless of what types of click thrus you get right?

  61. KaNipKaLeN says:

    Wow nice income…

  62. peter bordes says:

    congratulations Jon. very impressive ROI. look forward to learning more.

  63. I have a little question JOHN! do you pay Wealth Tax or Income Tax for this Blogs income ??? โ“

    1. Sha says:

      Good question. I’m assuming income tax? The IRS would probably be pissed that they weren’t getting their share.

      1. after all these people are the first to follow the BIG EARNERS & ask for their share??

        1. Sha says:

          I wonder how many people making good money online don’t pay their taxes…

    2. Apoorv says:

      Maybe ๐Ÿ˜€

  64. Sha says:

    Smashing, John. I had a feeling you would surpass the 30K mark again. It’s like you made up for last month with an extra bonus.

  65. Apoorv says:

    Great John, You are the future Internet Bill Gates ๐Ÿ˜€

  66. Stella says:

    All I can say is “WOW”…!!Well done John..very well done. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a doubt about text-link-ads…can I use them with Google adsense safely? Many thanks..

  67. expand says:

    Woah John, that is crazy!
    You represent canada in fine form, and are an inspiration to BILLIONS!
    You are the poster boy of blog success!
    Keep it up!

  68. Erin Mogul says:

    Wow. I had no idea China blocked so many Western sites. Regardless – congrats! 40K next (and I have no doubt you can do it)

  69. Noobpreneur says:


    That’s plain a huge number for the rest of us – an enviable one ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good luck on reaching your next milestone!

  70. Chessmaster says:

    Nice stats John,
    What’s most impressive are the number of comments made on this post. Money really drives this world!!

  71. andre says:

    Wow!! must be great..

  72. andre says:

    John, great job.. Keep it up

  73. Hamka says:

    When I can be like you John.
    30k a month, wow so impressive

  74. aproxima says:

    Thanks John, you are an inspiration to so many people even in Spain and latinamerican countries!

  75. Nanci S. says:

    Just curious…How much is your average reader earning per month???

    1. Abdul says:

      Must be more than $00, thats an estimate, might actually be more than that!

    2. Abdul says:

      Must be about $10 or more than that per reader, actually depends on how much readers he has!

    John, why do you still use Text Link Ads? Isn’t it true that they hurt your Google PR and SERP?

    1. Terry Tay says:

      I think when you’re making $30,000+ a month on your blog you tend not to notice things like that ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Flimjo says:

        Good point. When you have this much direct traffic, who cares what Google thinks.

      2. Sha says:

        Exactly. I don’t think he cares where he stands with Google.

    Sos un ejemplo para muchos, mejor dicho para todos nosotros! gracias por la motivacion, saludos desde Argentina

    1. Flimjo says:

      Muy bien dicho, Nicolas.

    John you’re right. What could be better than traveling while making $1000/day? How about traveling and making $2000/day? There ya go.

  84. ElectroGeek says:

  95. Big Blogger says:

    Hi John,

    you stated:

    This blog started with only Google AdSense. If I had stuck with that and nothing else, it wouldnโ€™t be making over $1,000 per day.

    If I do my math:
    $1,000 x 30 days = 30,000 $/month
    That isn’t much different as that you earn this month !!!

    What do I miss ?


    1. Asswass says:

      Use said it your self. John said “I wouldn’t be making” not “I would be making”

  96. blogaholic says:

    congrats john.. you’re great

  97. Jo says:

    Wow! It’s incredible that your expenses were just $225!!!

    I spend more than that on aspirin (trying to get rid of the headaches that my blog causes me)!

    John Chow,

    After looking at your money making advertisements, I applied for Kontera and Text-Link-Ads myself. Unfortunately Text-Link-Ads rejected my site as I already had “Content Links” (Kontera I believe), therefore can’t have Text-Link-Ads. Is there anything I can do? Thank you.

  101. cerita seru says:

    Congrats with your income john, you re the best fo me

  102. Steve says:

    Good job, John. I would love to make that much someday. I was wondering where you’re Private Ad Sales and Affiliate Commissions come from. Is that the Sponsors sections on the right side or is it something else?

    Keep up the good work. I enjoy your blog very much.


  103. Stefano says:

    Congratulations for your incomeโ€ฆyou are an inspiration for me and other many people even in Italy! My dream is to compete with you some day, but i think it will be impossible!!!

  109. Tim says:

    Hi John,

    I already subscribe to your newsletter, but can you please send me the link to your Free ebook “Make money online” which describes how you developed your blog income?



  110. AJ says:

    nice!!!!!! John I think your income reports is the only reason your fans want to blog better. Congrats, and it seems you’re on your way to the $50,000/month mark.

  111. Carl says:

    hola bueno solo para felicitarte… lo mas probable es que ni leas esta comment y tambien que no lo entiendas… pero queria felicitarte… eres la meta a llegar de muchos de nosotros que estamos trabajando blogsss… Congratulations!!

  112. Draqos says:

    nice, keep going!

  113. Mike says:

    That is great John. I always like when someone earn money on their own. I hope Google comes out with some better ways than just Adsense. I wish they would have it set up so advertisers can come to them and we get paid on a per month rate for ads shown rather than by how many clicks an ad gets. Maybe one day.

  114. Reflections says:

    This is very resourceful. I wish to be making this kind of money each month. I am up to $10,000 per month currently but still got lots of room to improve obviously.

  115. mrloo says:

    Wow John congratulations on your May income, I wish I can earn at least 10% of that a month. If I earn at least 20% of that a month I will surely stop working overseas and stay home.

    By the way, I received my first check from Google Adsense last month and it’s only more than a $100, but I was so happy. I also would like to brag that paycheck in my blog, will Google allow bragging of Adsense income? If not what is the proper way to tell my readers about my Adsense income?

    Appreciate your reply.
