    Hi guys,

    I've had a journey thread before and it went quite well although I never updated it. (Shame on me lol.)

    I've only recently started making money off adsense (Febuary this year) I made around $5k from Adsense in one month first time trying, even though 99% of everyone thought I was talking balls as I had never done it before. This thread is for my own enjoyment and hopefully to motivate others to know it's possible to achieve any goals you set with the correct mind set. I'll be making this purely by Adsense earnings. I've been making a stable $2k+ Adsense each month off 2 websites. Want to know the funny thing? CPC is around $0.40. To all you guys approaching the high expensive CPC you're doing it wrong unless of course you are indeed making money then well played.

    I've recently made a new website that was against adsenses TOS so I never put adverts on it, but I thought fuck it might aswell delete it and make it around a topic and slapped Adsense on it. (this site is went stupidly viral to the point CNN interviewed me and other large media websites) I get around 30k+ traffic each day off my websites, I agree I should be making more money as my CTR is around 0.5-0.7 unfortunately I've not really found a good place that converts well (feel free to suggest). The goal is for a Car, not a set amount of money because that's boring and doesn't motivate me as much as this car, I'm young and I drive a shit car at the moment and majority of my friends drive brand new cars, I do appreciate the fact I have a car though I'm not a spoilt brat before the trolls enter.

    Please note: Don't PM with help on how to make money by Adsense, I had no idea to begin with, it was pure luck I came across something that works, but for how long I don't know, I feel as though I keep getting lucky. Anyways the goal is for $12145.60 (I live in the UK so it's £8000. That's how much the car costs approximately, so it's time to scale this shit up and rock and roll.

    Well I'll report my earnings tomorrow and we'll go from there. Oh the car looks like the one below; probably not your taste but I love it.

    Good luck! I have a serious soft spot for z's ... I owned one 3 years ago before totaling it on a wet road ... had a rear mount turbo from sts (highly recommend for your z when you get it). Very fun and responsive car even bone stock.

    Very similar goal to mine, but i'm aiming for a e46 BMW. Thought i'd aim a bit lower :p So aiming for around £4,000

    Adsense is a very minor income for me. Probably bringing in around 30p on average per day from it. I want to look into beefing it up a bit though

    It's my only income when it comes to IM at the moment, I have a normal 9-5 job which is okay but I'd rather focus on this. ;)

    So yesterday I made: £100/$150 - Not a bad start off Adsense for a days work. Just made another website to trial something out.

    If this keeps up I'll probably get the car quicker than I thought. Would much rather try and go for the £200/day mark though.

    Really need to scale this up and repeat!

    Just a question, if you currently dominate the search results for one niche, should I get another website setup for the same keywords and get a little bit of traffic on that too just curious!

    Also has anyone got suggestions to increase CTR, as it's less than 0.6% probably good since I'm not targeting any specific product though.

    You got Skype? Would be awesome to exchange ideas with someone with similar goals, and who is also from the UK

    If you are avg. $2k a month and you have 3+ months of history then sell the sites on flippa.... $20k right there.

    I hate to be boring but you will probably regret it later....unless you are still making shit loads of money. I'd invest some of the cash into a new venture that made $5k-$10k/month before looking at spending that sort of money on a car.

    How are you ranking your Adsense site?

    Is this a site you started from scratch?

    Damn, I need to get back into adsense. Will follow this thread and good luck

    I had 2 350zs. Great looking car but lazy pig V6 that only comes to life when you thrash it and a bit too much plastic inside. But looks cool and never cost me any money.
