Earning 10 in 2010 - Online Earnings UpdateI'm terribly late but still, hello everyone and welcome to the November 2010 edition of my Online Earnings Update. November was not a good month, and it doesn't seem like things will be looking up soon. I'll tell you why in a bit...
For this month, I earned only about $7.34, mostly from Google Adsense. It seems I've unwittingly relaxed after I received my first $100 on Google Adsense! Wait.. you don't know what the heck I'm talking about? If it is your first time reading a post from this series, here's a quick background...
I've decided to blog about my monthly online earnings via my Twitter account, and my Personal Blog for the whole of 2010. I realize it is somewhat of a challenge to earn from a personal blog as opposed to a niche blog (i.e. entertainment, current events, movies, technology, gadgets, etc) - I'm posting only around once or twice a week about the things I would normally blog about, receiving less than 150 unique hits per day. And since these are personal accounts, I have been quite discriminating in my choices of what to "promote".
If you are a newbie like me, then read on and join me on this journey! If you are in the same situation - trying to earn through your personal blogs, I invite you to share what you know and how your efforts have been fruitful so far.
Let's break it down further and I'll share with you some things I learned about Making Money Online this month.
Break it down!
Google Adsense - $5.40 - As I mentioned, I've received my first ever $100 payout from Google a few weeks ago. And I have accumulated another 17.90 thus far. However, the low earnings this month is indicative of something more worrisome that just a bad month....
In a tragic twist of fate (lol, how dramatic), it seems I've lost my SEO juice or whatever it is called. Google doesn't bring me any more page hits save for a few key words. Numerous culprits come to mind - loading speed (my blog became slower when I shifted to Blogger templates), too many links, non SEO-optimized template, or simply my infrequent posting.
Whatever it is, the answer is apparent - more SEO optimization my friends. Argh!
Nuffnang.ph - Php56.88 or around $1.10 - The Php2,000 payout threshold for Nuffnang was reached this month enabling me to cash-out. They've sent me a check which I will hopefully receive in the next few days.
Chitika -$0.73 - Around $9.20 in a year is, well, lame, but what the heck. I've decided to just leave it there for at least another year or so. Hehe.
Summarizing - Monetizing
In summary, my online earnings for 2010 so far...
January 2010 = $9.62
February 2010 = $41.00
March 2010 = $15.97
April 2010 = $44.60
May 2010 = $20.43
June 2010 = $35.00
July 2010 = $10.91
August 2010 = $21.44
September 2010 = $26.71
October 2010 = $19.03
November = $7.34
From January to November 2010, I have collected a total of around $250.00 (roughly Php12,000.00 in 11 months). That's an average of about Php 1,100 per month in 2010. Hey, that covers one dinner weekend date with my girlfriend every month! :D

Things I learned from Earning OnlineI found that November and December are really slow months for me blogging wise - I never seem to be able to find the time to blog anymore, much less earn anything from it. I know many others use the holidays to earn big from promoting gift items, but I'd spent all my time buying gifts I don't have time selling them. Hehe!
In any case, I am obviously lost so I will turn it over to you to please give some tips and tricks on how to earn through blogging especially during the Holidays. :D
