My First Taste of Google Juice, How Sweet It Is

My First Taste of Google Juice, How Sweet It Is

Category: Personal


.....

It was just last night when I checked my Adsense account when I realized that Google had already sent me the Western Union money transfer control number (MTCN) for my first payout. Yippee! Akala ko sa 30 pa, first time ko kasi eh.

[ad#link_insidepost]

Below is the screen shot. Yes, my first payout is $159.58. I got that after 6 months of blogging at this site. My old site was really not intended for making money online so I have not earned anything from it. Anyway, I originally thought that I’ll reach the minimum $100 payment threshold in 10 months but thanks to some “sizzling hoottt” keywords, napaaga ng 5 months.

This afternoon, I went to one of the Western Union branches here. My wife accompanied me… to take my picture, hehe..

When I gave the claim form to the cashier, he asked me, “Sir, bakit hindi tao ang sender nito?”

I said, “Sa internet kasi galing yan.”

He said in disbelief, “Wow, may pera pala sa internet!”

I replied with joy, “Meron talaga!”

You know what? My hands are virtually shaking while I was accepting the money. Pasencia na, ang saya-saya ko kasi. Hindi naman kasi talaga ganun kadali ang kumita online. Kailangan talaga ng sipag at tiyaga. Dugo at pawis. Puyat at pagod, hehe..

With their exchange rate of P47.539 – $1, I received P7,586.40. Not bad for a start I think. Next month, I hope to receive around $300 buoyed by a $172.19 day. I hope it will continue to grow every month. I have now tasted Google juice and its sweet taste leaves me yearning for more. 😉

We immediately went off to buy some groceries. We also bought some dusters for my wife. She is already 7 months pregnant and none of her clothes fit her anymore. Next week, she will be having an ultrasound so that we will be able to know our baby’s gender. Of course, the payment will be coming from this first earning.

So, with the time-honored tradition of people posting pictures of themselves with their online earnings, here’s my share:

I have many people to thank for on my next post. But this post is all about Google so to the Big G, thank you very much!

    Congrats! Good for you. Good timing din coz you’re on the family way na pala. Unlimited bandwidth ka na no? Before kasi you used to exceed bandwidth so I couldn’t access your blog. Write a lot of tips on traffic building ha? Will come back here often. I wish my Adsense would be that fast-earning too.=)

    congrats! tuloy tuloy na yan. tip lang regarding WU, iba-iba rin exchange rate nila depende sa branch. hanap ka ng mas mataas ang exchange rate next time to maximize the earnings. :) yung sa akin, ngayon ko nakuha, exchange rate is 48.05.

    Di na kami naghanap ng mas mataas na rate. Kailangan na agad namin ng cash eh.

    I should really try Google adsense. Been blogging for more than 2 years na pero never paid attention on Google adsense. I focused more on paid posts kasi.

    Btw, thanks for visiting my blog.

    ark Reply:

    Kanya-kanyang diskarte lang naman kasi yan eh. Marami din namang malakas kumita sa mga paid posts. Ung iba naman eh PPC.

    I envy you because you have Western Union Quick Cash. I think I have used a business account in Adsense that is why my only payment option is by check :( … I already surpassed the US$100 after 12 months of using adsense… ehehehe you are brighter.

    [Reply]

    ark Reply:

    Hindi naman brighter, nagkataon lang na I read ebooks on SEO which helped a lot. I think pwede mo namang ichange to WU ang payment option mo di ba?

    Congratulations ark. It may taken a little time but it eventually pays off. BTW, Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your comments. Truly appreciate it.

    BTW, and my tagalog is quite rusty, but the guy from Western Union, what world does he live in? “Sir, bakit hindi tao ang sender nito? Why is the sender of this not a person?, hahaha Did I translate this right?

    [Reply]

    ark Reply:

    Yes, your translation is good. It might be his first time to encounter someone claiming money coming from google. In our place, the usual money senders are those working abroad.

    Nice Ark! At last! It took me 8 months after I received my first adsense payout because I did not take blogging seriously back then. But the second payout took me three months na lang. :)

    Still, mabagal pa din. target ko sana is $100 monthly. :)

    [Reply]

    ark Reply:

    Medyo grabe din kasi ang competition sa niche mo eh. Siguro additional research pa sa mga HITLOD keywords para mapabilis.
