    I want to start off by saying that I'm new to Adsense. However about a year ago I made $800 in about a month with PPD.
    The reason why I set my goal to $200 is because once I start to earn more than $2k/year the tax will start to take half of my earnings.
    So in order to earn a pure profit of $100/day I need to earn $200 :S.

    Some info about me:
    I'm 17 years old, 18 in four months. I'm pretty social (in school), but I barely have any friends. None to hang out with outside school.
    For the past 2-3 years I've spent all my free time playing computer games. On weekdays I've been averaging 5 hours/day and on weekends at least 10 hours/day.
    I used a calculator for my favorite game to see my time spent playing: "you've spent about 2140 hours on League of Legends which means 89 days of your life".
    I have never in my life gone out with friends to a real party.
    So yeah, so far life has had it's ups and downs, lately a lot of sad days.
    I have decent grades and I will graduate in 1 and 1/2 year. Which I'm afraid of since I don't know what to do afterwards.

    That's my current situation. I'm pretty dedicated and hope that online business will help me. I started this journey to motivate myself even more.
    I started to work actively on my website about a week ago. The site is a sort of time management tool. So no articles here, just some frontpage information etc.
    This month I've earned $37 with Adsense, I'm averaging 150-200 visitors/day.
    My goal for this website is 2k visitors/day, then I will move on to the next one (if rankings are topped).

    My plan:
    1. Daily create 5-10 web 2.0 articles. (Tier 1)
    2. Create 10 high pr profiles and bookmarks for each web 2.0. (Tier 2)
    3. Create about 100 blog comments for each Tier 2. (Tier 3)

    My current serp:
    The competition is actually very low, I'm just bad at seo.

    My currently biggest problem is that my web 2.0s won't index. I've tried using rapid indexer, pinging service, social bookmarks and blogspot post.

    Well yeah, that probably covers the most. Hopefully I won't stop until I reach my goal :).
    Will try to update daily.

    Can you go in more details what's your site/niche you're target, how many articles you have on your site and also how much traffic your keyword has from researching.

    As long as you go further with details we can help you with more inside experience cos lot of people here Adsense is their basic plan and will direct you to get at least $50/daily first. :rolleyes:

    My website is not a blog. It's a type of time management tool. So I unfortunately don't have any bigger amount of articles/text. I have a start page that introduces the website with about 300 words of text.
    Then I have the tool itself and that page has about 200 words.

    50% of your income goes to taxes? That's crazy! Where do you live?

    And, of course, good luck with your journey!

    I live in Sweden a very social democratic country. The tax for "normal employed" people is about 33%. But for entrepreneurs it's 50%.
    As a normal employed your boss pays a lot of fees (insurances, pension etc). But as a solo working entrepreneur you will have to pay that yourself.

    Whats your CTR? CPC? Are you serving ads based on previous browsing history or site relevant?

    I'm currently not focusing to much on my earnings, just want my rankings to go up. However my current CTR is 1,55% and my CPC is 0,37 USD.
    I didn't know you could customize the ad choices :O. I found the tab now lol, what do you recommend?

    I made the tool with my own experience, some wp plugins and some help from StackOverflow :).

    Thanks for all the positive comments. Gonna start working on some more web 2.0 now.
