Google Pays Out


ForĀ  many of you who read Tyler Ingram dot Com you know that I do have some ads, in fact there is on in this post. It seems people out there in the blogosphere (not all of you though) try to generate some sort of revenue with advertising on your site be it with Google’s AdSense, TextLinkAds, Chikita, other affiliates or even by selling private ad space. Well I know it is a bit late but I did finally receive my first Google AdSense cheque back in November which means in October I reached the $100 payout mark.

Me and Google
My First Google AdSense Cheque

Google Adsense pays out their users when they reach a minimum of $100. Now this doesn’t mean your cheques are all going to be $100 or so dollars, but when you reach the $100 minimum you will get a cheque for your balance the following month. So if you make over $132,000 like Shoemoney did within the pay period, they will issue you a cheque the following month for that amount.

Now for me it took about 1.5 years to reach the $100 minimum payout amount and I was pretty excited to know I would be receiving a cheque from Google. Now what I have to figure out is how I can significantly increase the amount so I can see a more steady monthly revenue flow from Google and not have to wait so long for my payout.

Who knows, perhaps I’ll buckle down and see if I can get some advertising revenue generated without it being too intrusive. Perhaps having about 4 blogs might help me too to establish a better online income.

Yes the above photo isn’t the sharpest and it is hard to make out the cheque amount but it is for $106 US, which is what about $400 CND or something now? lol

If you use Google AdSense, when did you receive your first AdSense payout and how much was it for?

    I think it almost took me a year to get my first cheque too. They’re a little more frequent than that now, but I’m still not in the “cheque every month” range just yet.

    Now is that for all of your sites combined? Or just BTR?

    By the way, holy crap, $132,000? That’s.. insane. I think we’re all in the wrong business.

    I need to start using AdSense I think! Yeah, more than one blog will help you along with higher payouts. Work on some backlinks too.

    Netchick sent me. Just stopping by to say hello.

    I’m thinking that’s a lot of time for a C-note.

    It took me 1 year and 3 months to get a check of $108.50 but it isn’t totally about the money..

    It’s about an achievement.. isn’t it?

    Sorry it took me so long to come back and reply to your original question, but no, that’s not just BTR. That includes all of my sites, but BTR is still the biggest contributor.
