November is not being to friendly. Well actually sales this week were good, but couple went on payment plans with down payments so actual deposited income was lower. Two edge sword these payment plans. Helps client to purchase more photography, and gives me a known cash-flow each month but limits the actual months income.
Well the issue with finalized payment with adsense has been corrected, seems to have been a glitch on their part that effected quite a few people. I also started a test by switching off interest based ads, but after 3 days of no clicks I got worried and switched it back on. Weird thing is that soon after I got a few high paying clicks, but nothing since. So I don’t know whats up there.
Sunday after posting about the smoothie site being parked at #5 I ran a report and it had moved up to #2! and has been there since. Also had a PR update this week and smoothie site is now a PR1. Other good news is that another niche site that had been at #3 for ever has also moved up to #2 and this site right here is now a PR2!
Speaking of smoothie site, I’m doing my first give away over there so if you like smoothies head over to healthybreakfastsmoothies.com and enter yourself and help spread the word!
Thats my week, how did your week go? Hope it went well and you enjoy your Sunday
