Well, I have a few things to report on my Ad-sense Publisher Experiment…
First, as I reached the magic $50 limit for cost, I put my ad-sense campaign on “pause”.
As you can see from the above picture, I had 287 clicks in 30 days, with 566,614 impressions, an average CPC of $0.25 and a total cost of $52.19 for that campaign.
And as you can see (as the “well, duh!” moment), my campaign went downhill after I put it on pause.
My traffic has dropped off considerably.
In addition, I have had no new sales since August 9th. I wasn’t making much money before that anyway – maybe one sale every couple of weeks, but at least I was getting sales. 🙂
So I’m torn… The AdSense stuff obviously helped with traffic to my affiliate site. And it’s not really AdSense’s fault that the clicks weren’t converting to sales. So I think I may go ahead and let it run another month to see what shakes loose.
Anybody else having luck or have any good tricks for AdSense? I’m all ears!
Until next time…
