Achievement Unlocked – First $100 AdSense Day

| June 22, 2012 | 8 Comments

Similar to Mike From Maine’s First $100 AdSense Day, I too finally broke that barrier yesterday evening with my first crossing of the $100 mark:

Achieved greater than $100 in a single day with AdSense

It’s been awhile since I made up one of these too:

Achievement Unlocked - $100 in AdSense

I’m pretty stoked and hopefully I’m on the right track towards more earnings like that on a consistent basis. So far I am on pace to meet or exceed previous months’ earnings so I’m quite happy.

An interesting thing about the niches I have sites for is that I don’t really make anything until the afternoon evening hours, and in terms of time zone it is heavily based on Pacific Standard Time. Strange but true.

Oh, and on a completely different note, I did mention in one of my last progress reports that I was going to be looking at a tool called Ultimate Demon. After about 3 weeks worth of testing I concluded that it was not for me, so I’m looking for something else that performs a little bit better for what I need.

So yeah, this was a short post but I just wanted to spread the good news!

    Awesome sauce! And way to build the suspense by whiting out the MTD. Also, I just noticed that it’s a website that creates achievements. That’s site’s pretty cool.

    Question: Are you still using UAW?

      Thanks! I originally wanted to gamify my progress more through achievements. The trouble was keeping up with changes creating niche sites so I lacked the time to develop a list of Xbox-style goals. I think that gamification would really help motivate people just starting out. That’s something that I could probably take a look at again in the near future though.

      As for UAW, I’ve cancelled. Still looking for better tools at the moment. I tried one called Ultimate Demon and that didn’t work. Now I’m looking at Linkwheel Bandit.

    Thanks. That’s all I needed. I just bailed as well. Wasn’t economical with my limited sites but I was going to stay anyway. But it seems many people have bailed on UAW and moved toward newer less known options. Only subscription I have now is SocialADR. I will definitely start turning a tiny profit each month now.

  3. That’s awesome Andre! I recently broke that mark on my niche sites as well. It’s a great feeling. Also the momentum is amazing! Once I knew what was working, it was as simple as scaling up. We’re on pace to break a $200 day soon.

      Thanks Josh. What pleases me is that I have a smaller portfolio that does more work for me. The gurus keep talking about the 80/20 rule. Let’s just say that if you do your research well and work hard you can have a higher percentage of earners (much higher).

    Well done Andre, I’m no where near $100 a day but it’s nice to see others doing it, especially these days when it’s getting harder to make a decent income online.
