Just cracked the $100 threshold - Small success story

Hello World. Just wanted to share a very small success story with you all. I logged into Adsense just a moment ago and I have just cracked the $100 threshold Google needs to send you money. It has taken months to do it but it was sped up nicely from the XFactor Adsense method.

Maybe I'll get a fresh $100 check next month, or in December, but who knows. I know all of my information is up to par and I have verified everything Google needs. So when can I expect the cash?

Right now I have two XFactor sites sitting on page one of Google with three more lingering out there. Trying to bump them up, though two of them could be abandoned and one I will really work on to get it to page one (it is on page two now).

    Nicely done guys. Now multiply that 50x. Just think..a domain name costs $7 or $8. It costs me more to fill up my car Get your process down on paper and execute every day. $100 checks are nice each month for sure, but looking at a $52,133.85 check is real nice too

    You've learned the basics, now ramp it up!

    Are there any good AdSense tutorials out there?

      Check XFactor's really long post (about 34 pages). He spells out the whole thing. Or, you can spend the money to buy his book (really worth it). Either way, you'll get the information you need.

      That's what the OP used and I've started using it myself because it's a great model.

    Great Job! It only gets easier from now on! My first adsense check took me 9 months, next one 4 months. Now I'm down to clearing the $100 mark in a month.

        Hi Biggy Fat

        Just popping in to say well done, keep up the good work. I'm also following the Xfactor system and I'm now about £9 after a few weeks. Hearing other success stories keeps me going.

                Congratulations! The first check from Google is always sweet. I bought Xfactor's ebook too so we have something in common. It's the best investment I've made for a long time. Keep up the good work.

    Intrepreneur,

    He is for real. But I wonder about the claims. I am experienced in Adsense and I have some success with X-Factor's methods but the problem remains the same. How to boost your visitor count to the level you need to earn $100 or more a day. X-Factor does not believe in concentrating on the lower click payouts, but that means you need to get a ton more visitors to make much money. I have no problem with that idea, it's just that it takes a helluva longer time and effort. Though you may never crack through the highly competitive key phrases.

    Also, when I see people selling their "secrets" (as X-Factor is now doing) I begin to think that things are not as cozy in their efforts as they make it seem to be.

    Just my 2 cents, worth what you paid for it.

        I believe what greff is saying is that it is an awful lot of work for such little payout. It takes alot more backlink building than what most people believe.

    Congrats the first $100 is always the hardest. Just keep adding sites and getting more backlinks to your sites and you'll be hitting $100 a month quite easily.

    It took me a long time to get that first $100 but now I'm working on a $1000 per month, almost there. Keep it up.

    I found when I hit 100$ a day, I felt good. but I also felt guilt. The idea of making this money while other people are going to work. I've since gone up and down but that guilt always keeps cropping up.

      LOL, don't feel guilty. Those other people going to work are missing out on the REAL cash.

      Lol,m guilty for what? They have a job and YOUR job is to maintain your AdSense sites. A job is a job, some people get paid more than others, and don't forget the amount of hard work you put in.

        Very true. I mean ranking sites and choosing niches is not a walk in the park, right? So why not get paid?

    Congratulations! This is awesome achievement. It shows you that things are possible and now you need to scale up.

    I believe consistency goes a long way in this business. Doing profitable activities every single day like clockwork. Even if you spent just one hour each day, but stayed consistent... you would go a long way. Well done!

    Biggy Fat,

    Congrats, well done, now its a numbers game, just multiply like what Kael said and you'll really start to feel the power of these sites. Just keep working hard and don't stop. If you're already making $100 per month, chances are that with a little more work it'll just keep getting better. Domains are like mature cheese and fine wine, the older they get the better they are.

    Good luck

      Just cracked the $100 mark myself. Took me a little more than a year, believe it or not, but now I seem to be getting a lot more clicks and the second $100 appears to be coming quicker, on its own. I guess the first $100 really IS the hardest!

        Now that you've surpassed the magic mark...it may do you well to experimet on different ad layouts (if you haven't already). It's a pretty good guage to go by, that if you are already at that threshold, you ought to be able to reach it month oafter month. But try various things like different ad layouts, positioning on the page(s) and adding more content.
        My two cents...

    Hey!

    That's great news.

    By the way, what else are you doing to monetize your site? Only Adsense??

    Here's a thought: If you can drive visitors to your website why don't you add CPA or affiliate products too? These pay way more than a few cents per click.

    Anyway, it's only MY opinion.

    Congratulations!!
