A note about WordAds Earnings

Cash-dollarsI believe there is a real enhancement in WordAds revenue. I usually receive around $3 a month. This month, October’s earnings were around $14.

I noticed an increase in traffic to my blog. However, I think this was supported by better ads performance comparing to the earlier situation. Moreover, it seems that WordPress is displaying more ads from Google AdSense program.

Please refer to my previous post: Do you display ads on your blog?

What about you, have you noticed increasing in your ads revenue?

        Upgrading to self hosting WP doesn’t worth it in my opinion. Otherwise, if you’re talking about displaying ads on your WordPress.com blog as part of premium service, it depends on you. With more good traffic, you might get some returns. However, many, as you can see through comments here, are not willing to scarify the performance for small amount of earnings

        I’m not sure about traffic amount. It depends more on the quality of the traffic. I think it counts after few months of posting with good amount of users are engaging with your contents.

        I don’t think you’re going to make a living out of it unless you’re selling ads yourself (different story). However, it helps in the total cost of hosting… Leaving money aside, I believe reasonable ads give more beauty to the website itself.

      Yes, Kelly. The more traffic you receive the more earnings you get from WordAds or any other advertising medium. However, quality of traffic has its own effect too. Usually, US and Canadian traffic get the higher earnings.

      I see your point, Michael. I was thinking so. I had stopped the ads for around two months for this reason in addition to the performance reason. Now, I noticed an enhancements in the ads performance comparing to the earlier situation. So, I think if there is no negative effect on blog’s performance, displaying ads won’t harm. However, more traffic (and the quality of traffic as I explained in other comment) are important factors.

    By coincidence, I chatted to WordAds this morning. My ad impressions have been going up each month and yet payments have gone down each month! They have told me that it could be the quality of traffic and yet I have done nothing different except add more content each month and therefore more growth in traffic.

      Well, I’m not sure about this situation, Roland. More traffic is good. However, they might not tell you this, I’m pretty sure that traffic from USA and Canada is the most affecting factor. I think with time and verity of topics things will get better

      Wow, Kathleen… Thousands of visitors per month is something that one can crow about! I’m not sure about the situation here. WordPress doesn’t show us exactly how things are going on in this regards. As I mentioned in other places and comments, it could be due to the quality of traffic (USA & Canada) or due to the verity in topics… Unfortunately, with WordPress, most visits come through the WP’s reader not through the main Website… Anyway, I understand your point. All my researches here led to the result that a payment of $100 needs 1 -2 years to be received!!

    My answers to your questions is no. I think main reason I don’t get many in traffic is I don’t write what they like, which I don’t care. I write what comes to my mind. What would you suggest to get more visitors to my site?

      Thank you, Byung. That is the main point/goal of a blog, to write what you want and what you feel comfortable with. I like reading your blog and I enjoy it. As for more traffic, the best thing is more engagement with others in addition to some promotion…

      That’s very valid and interesting point, Carolyn. I do the same often and I noticed it mostly on Facebook. I don’t see their ads! This might be another reason for not getting high earnings from displaying ads; that’s, the way ads are being displayed or their positions!
