Monthly Update - May 2009

During this month I have been rather busy and unable to commit too much time to my online money making activities. I wrote two hubs at the beginning of the month, on on Great Dance Party Songs and one a review of the online survey site OpinionWorld. I have also written a Knol on Biochar. This writing of the Knol was an experiment to see if Knol's would gather traffic, although unfortunately so far it has been extremely disappointing. Apart from this I have carried out a few paid searches using Homepages-Friends, but that is about it.

May 2009 earnings:

Hubpages: $88.73 (658% increase from April)
Home-pages Friends: £1.73 (258% increase from April)

From other sources, including paid surveys I earnt nothing, which is to be expected since I have been unable to complete any for the last few months. Hopefully I will be able to complete more soon though.

As can be seen there has been a massive increase in Adsense earnings. This was mainly due to the good fortune I faced with a link to a search result page being placed on the Yahoo homepage. For this Yahoo! search one of my hubs appeared top of the rankings, and so I achieved a lot of traffic from this with an associated surge in earnings. I also had a great increase in the amount I earnt from paid searches, although this may mainly be due to having carried out very few last month.

I hope to increase my number of hubs as well as exploring various other money making opportunities.
