I had a recent comment asking me about adsense earnings and whether I thought it was worth setting up a blog like this one, so I thought it might be useful to post about them. I have a lot of different blogs and websites and all of them have adsense adverts on them. I tend to earn about $100 every 3-6 months from these sites all added up together. The best earner is my this blog and in August I earned $15 from it. This is less than it has earned in the past, which I think is because I am not promoting the site as much as I used to. When I was more active on forums and spent time commenting on others sites, I did get more traffic and earn more. I also did better when I had page rank. I think I have had this site for 2.5 years and I have earned $500 from it altogether just from adsense and additional money form the blogroll advertising and paid blog articles. Therefore, if you are considering setting up this sort of blog then I would definitely recommend it. Make sure that you promote it well, link exchanges are good as well as commenting on others blogs and forums. Buy your own domain if you want to make money from advertising before advertisers prefer that. Have fun and be honest and you should earn some regular readers. Also let me know as I will be happy to write a short piece advertising it for you. Good luck!
