I'm excited as Google has just sent me my first $120 or so Adsense check. I haven't received it yet but I know it's on the way. The last 6 months I hardly made anything with Adsense but since mid July I started to hang out more in this part of the WF rather than in the general section and I've learned lots. Although it might not mean much to anyone (besides me), I've increased my Adsense earnings to $10 in July and I already have that much for August and the month is not yet over. For me it's a big step from $2-3 per month.
Also John's program (xfactor's) and internetmarketer99's threads helped me a lot, so I want to also thank both of them for me getting this far.
One major thing I've learned here is how important keyword research is. Since last November when I started in IM, I just never really understood it until really started to read every thread in this forum section. Thank you all for helping me (unknowingly) getting my first little Google Adsense check.
