My first $2,000+ adsense day

    I can't believe I'm actually seeing this, but as of 7:22 PM PST, I have earned over $2,000 today using Adsense. My previous record was $1,700.

    The best thing is that I don't do any marketing for my sites so the revenue is pretty much pure profit. My only cost is hosting.

    Sometimes I see people post about how they made hundreds or even thousands in a day, but what they don't tell you is that they spent a ton of money on Adwords to get the traffic.

    Ok, so why am I telling you guys about this? Because I think if I can do it, you guys can do it as well. I quit my job a little over a year ago. I was making $45,000 a year at that full time job. This month alone, I will make over $30,000.

    The key to making lots of money with adsense is of course traffic. Focus on creating really good content or services that people find useful and tell their friends about. When I first started my site, I was hoping to make $300 per month for travelling money and now I'm making more money than I ever dreamed about. It's really insane.

    Anyways, just wanted to share this milestone with you guys. I've learned a lot on DP forums.

    Congrats, man. $30k a month is nothing to sneeze at, I don't care who you are. Good to see you're living the dream. IM has enabled me to live without a 9 to 5 too, but I'm not quite where you are as I only started in June of this year. I'll get there, though.

    Oh yeah, and be prepared for a million replies and IMs asking to see your URL(s). Haha. :D

    Congrats on your success! Just curious, is ALL of your income from adsense or does your site have other revenue streams?

    Dude, I make a lot less from Adsense than you do. So I have to congratulate you :)

    Keep up the good work.

    Yes please, so more information would be great.

    Ie. How man sites are you running or any insight into ad colors or placement?

    I'm just starting monetise all of my sites at the moment.. Content creation is a must. It's a full time job in itself.

    I'm currently running 3 personal sites, at this stage i'm just aiming to break the $100 usd per month barrier.

    Start small and work my way up. :D

    Good job gcarlson!

    How long ago did you first start with Adsense/SEO? How long did it take you to get there?

    Awesome work!

    Would you mind answering a couple of general questions?

    1. How many sites?
    2. What's the total monthly traffic of all your sites combined?

    We all want a specific 'formula' for making money online. Too bad it doesn't exist.
