My First Google Adsense Cheque

Share |

I've been with Google Adsense for the past two years. Payment for ads placed on my blog and articles had always been something of a rumour. The elusive cheque was something big Bloggers talked about and promised to teach you, but never quite delivered. Earning pennies for all the hard work we bloggers put ourselves through can be quite depressing. We spend a lot of time on our sites, writing, devising and designing the best possible posts for our readers. This is why the news I'm about to reveal is so encouraging.

Last week I received an official-looking envelope with my name stamped on the front. As usual, these types of envelopes herald the arrival of bills - companies asking me for money. This one however, revealed a cheque from Google. It was only for $69.12, but a great start, nevertheless. This has finally made the promise (dream) of a Google payment a reality for me. Now I know from tangible experience that it can and does happen. This will propel me to drive myself harder to earn more as the months go by.

If you haven't already read this article, How to Monetize Adsense For Search on your blog, have a look at it and implement it on your blog to your advantage.

Here's to Google Adsense and lots of cheques in the future!
UPDATE: Now I receive cheques from Google every couple of months - each one bigger than the last. Thanks, Google!

Congratulation Anne! A little incentive is always nice for all the hard work you've put in..

I think we have to earn up to $100 before we could get paid here in the US! Congratulation!

Thanks, Icy.
Amanda, you can choose a smaller limit, I think. Have a look at your account. Google changed the limit recently. You probably qualify for a lower payout limit.

Wow! Anne, I will never get my account up that much. Congratulations. Extra cash...

Congrates! Some extra cash for your hard work. You deserve it.

Extra cash, indeed! I think I'm going to get a WebID in feedjit to see how well that works for me.

I usually dont take time to ever make comments on a web site but I have to say I would truly be doing you a grave disservice if I didnt write something. This post has most definitely opened my eyes. Thank you so much for writing it.
