Launching SEO Company

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

So I had a fun day yesterday working from 6:30 am until now (20 minutes after midnight). I was building the Satellite Site for of a new search engine optimization company in Calgary (yes, I’m “involved” with the company). I partnered with two associates, and with the help of my wife and my brother-in-law (critical), we have started up – just scratching the surface.

The name of the company is Calgary SEO Specialists and we’re really excited to finally get serious and provide a clean build SEO company in Southern Alberta – it’s about time. Been working the search engines hard for so long – now I want to reach out and start helping out our local businesses a little bit (for a price of course).

Competing for search engine placement in Canada is a breeze. Normally with my loan blogs, where I compete in the USA I have to fight my way to the top of over 100 million search results to get any traffic. In Canada, even for competitive products and services, there is FAR less competition.

Adsense Income Dropping

One of the reasons I decided to make some money from another income stream is because Adsense has been tanking slowly for six months now, and we’re not taking the chance – getting caught sitting here dumbfounded if the rug gets pulled out from underneath us. We are not the only ones either – whenever you want watch people complain about Adsense earnings, you can find it over at Webmaster world.

I have seen dips in Adsense earnings many, many times before, but the dips are falling deeper lately, and with all of the constant algorithm changes in Google search, we HAVE to make our Adsense income only one stream of income amongst many streams. In fact, that is what Google tells publishers all the time – don’t rely on Adsense as your only household income.

In the years since we lost the Bing/Yahoo! PPC traffic (Adsense Arbitrage), we had to dive hard back into writing great content in order to stay working at home, and not working for the man again. It’s been a ton of work.

Our total Adsense income per day on pure natural traffic, in January was $127-$133. This January the average is $95.

Not good my friends – not good. Thank god we have CJ commissions to fill up the losses in Adsense.

The Adsense game is a great one when you are on top, and freaky in the low traffic months, and with the Adsense smart pricing going on, it’s getting harder and harder to justify sitting back and watch Adsense income levels dropping, and not do anything about it.

I will always keep Adsense on our blogs and hopefully the Adsense program will always be around, but it’s time to move on for a more secure financial future. This is why I got involved with Mel and Betty on the CalgarySEOSpecialists.com site. We can create a solid income going forward and Adsense can even crash and burn – won’t make a huge difference in the long run.

We have one SEO client who has been with us since 2005 and he has been very happy with the service we provide. Now that is a secure income. A steady check from a real customer you are actually helping, and in turn helping his wife, kids, and family. Now that I don’t mind working hard for.

Don’t get me wrong. A good, clean web site or blog with fresh content, and clean navigation will always garnish steady traffic from Google, Bing and Yahoo.





Adsense Earnings Income Screen Shots

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

Here are some Adsense earnings screen shots from some of our family accounts. The traffic that created this income is purely organic search and zero PPC traffic;

Adsense Income Earning for January 2011

Friday, January 7th, 2011

There are many a blogger (publishers) that complain around this time of year (well I suppose every time of year) about their Adsense income earnings etc. True that some niche markets and keyword markets don’t get as much traffic during January, but that is why we build various different blogs on different subjects. It all evens out in the end this way. Diversification right.

So here is how we are doing in January 2011 for our Adsense income;

  • Adsense Earnings total January 1 2011 — $82.78
  • Adsense Earnings total January 2 2011 — $112.24
  • Adsense Earnings total January 3 2011 — $173.93
  • Adsense Earnings total January 4 2011 — $162.61
  • Adsense Earnings total January 5 2011 — $133.77
  • Adsense Earnings total January 6 2011 — $145.81

Starting to increase a little bit over all because we have added allot of fresh content and one of our auto-blogs is kicking this time of year.

Today is a busy writing day for me. I have to write 3 large posts for next week. I still create and run aut0-blogs, but I still have some blogs that I just write my own content on. Just like this blog. I like to make sure that I have many different “irons in the fire”.

So hope every-one’s 2011 is working out OK.


Last Adsense Income Revenue Earnings of 2010

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

So I’m taking a break from posting our Adsense earning for the rest of 2010. Today our Adsense income in at $92.10 and it’s 5:03 PM Calgary time. I’ll post how low Christmas day gets just in case you are wondering “how low we can go”.

So the numbers are no where near as low as we were expecting them to be for the low Christmas season. It will surely tank big time by the 25th (XMAS) but I will report this as mentioned above.

So for the last few days it comes out to this for Adsense earnings;

  • Adsense revenue for Mon, December 20th = $172.83 (suprised at this one actually – good sign for 2011)
  • Adsense revenue for Tues, December 21st = $132.35
  • Adsense revenue for Wed, December 22nd = $147.88

Like I mentioned above, were doing good for today, but we’ll see — I’m betting that it will come in around $120 bucks.

So everyone have a great Christmas, and I’ll likely do another post on Zulit some day between Christmas and the New Year.

Still working on my auto-blog ebook and it’s looking good – I had no idea home much stuff I have stuffed away in my head. It’s getting rather long and detailed. I’m now glad that I’m writing the ebook now. It’s going to help allot of webmasters get their business cooking along.

For now,

All the best — Terry

Adsense Income Earnings for December 17-19, 2010

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Ok, so just a real quicky on the latest Adsense income – doing Christmas shopping and such. Fuckin’ cold out there today.

So for December 17-19 this is how it went;

  • Adsense earned income for Friday, Dec 17th = $127.32
  • Adsense earned income for Saturday, Dec 18th = $109.54
  • Adsense earned income for Sunday, Dec 19th = $98.18

I remember a day when we were making only $25-$30 on Saturdays and Sundays during November and December, but when we were making that amount, we ended up making  an average of $210 per day in Adsense for Jan, Feb, March. So will be interesting to see what the numbers are in Jan, Feb, and March 2011. I will report.

One last small note. Been having some interest on my Auto-Blog Formula lately, and I suppose it will be my first eBook for sale. I’ve started writing it, but there is a small delay in that I have decided to run a new Auto-Blog testing my system one last time one a fresh domain to make sure it works – before I actually start selling it to webmasters and bloggers who want to create “auto-profit”.

As I’ve said before – an Auto-Blog can’t work unless it has a combination of things in place. No stand-alone auto-blog plugin (YET!) will do all of the right things required to succeed. You have to have a combination of plugins running, and a combination of set-up tasks completed to ensure traffic. WE ARE NOT interested in just ONE DOLLAR A DAY with my auto-blog. My goal is always $10-$50 dollars a day.

So you can read more about the eBook I’m working on here. Same place the BUY NOW link is going to live.

Adsense Earnings and Income for Dec 10th – Dec 16th

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Well I’m behind on my Adsense income reports and earnings as usual. It was a pretty good weekend for a December, but nothing to write home about. This week has been solid – more solid income that the last couple of weeks – that is for sure. So here it is.

  • December 10th, 2010 – Friday Adsense earnings = $124.89
  • December 11th, 2010 – Saturday Adsense earnings = $91.45
  • December 12th, 2010 – Sunday Adsense earnings = $88.76
  • December 13th, 2010 – Monday Adsense earnings = $176.88
  • December 14th, 2010 – Tuesday Adsense earnings = $121.32
  • December 15th, 2010 – Wednesday Adsense earnings = $162.11

As usual the weekend numbers are down my the normal percentage/margin, and made up for on the week days. Our overall average income for the entire month of Decemeber 2010 is bringing us close to the $4000 dollar mark. This is a solid amount if you consider the slumped traffic we get in November and December. All traffic picks up by 20% after the New Year is over.

I’ll try to be a little more frequent with posting our Adsense income here at Zulit – awwwwhhh…..forget it. I never keep my promises when it comes to this domain. There just is no real money to made here. The hosting commission and about $20-$30 dollar in Adsense earnings from it. Not worth writing a post on Zulit every day.

Adsense Earnings Income for Dec 7,8,9

Friday, December 10th, 2010

As usual here at Zulit headquarters I’m doing my very best to live out my dream – my dream of doing nothing. Unfortunately I love my job and I work way too much.

However, I have been able to pull my head out of my ass a little bit this week, and take Wed, Thursday, and now the entire weekend off. It’s been hard pulling my head out of my ass for the that long. I had a lapse this morning and banged off two posts on a couple of niche sites. What greed – what pathetic human greed. Is it not enough???

So of course I’m late getting my Adsense income posted here for those who follow along. Here are the Adsense earnings totals for the December 2010 on the 7th, 8th, and 9th.

  • December 7th, 2010 – Tues Adsense total was $183.83 – shopping niche kicking pretty good there
  • December 8th, 2010 – Wed Adsense total was $132.99 – major appliances niche did alright
  • December 9th, 2010 – Thur Adsense total was $149.00 – a NEW niche blog is starting to take off and it’s really exciting. More on the new niche blog below.

So I started a blog all about Accident Attorneys in June which is starting to move in Google now. WOW! Click through rate is not that great for the blog (CTR is about 3.5%) BUT when they click……holy crap…..big money. Had a click that paid $23 dollars which is a record.

So I had to “learn up” on the laws in the particular State I am writing about. HINT:: For a niche like this it’s very competitive so you better focus on ONE STATE ONLY, and stick to it like glue. I won’t be sharing which State I’m covering but let us just say it’s usually WARM there.

So I had to do allot of reading regarding accident attorneys, lawyers, State Law, Federal Law, etc. Had to write about high profile cases that I researched using the Google machine.

So there you have some tips friends.

Now get to fucking work!
