I have been running Google ads in my websites for a couple of months now. In this particular post, I will share to you my experience on how Google returned the blessings back to me for one certain website.
Last month, I launched a one-article website for a micro niche. I used one keyword to rank for that site. It has about 500 searches for a month. This was basically part of my experiments on making money with Google.
After creating the website for 4 hours and backlinking for 7 days, my website got ranked on Google. It was on the 6th spot of the first page for that one keyword that I used. Of course, this website already had Adsense ads on it.
A few days after, I started to receive traffic from that site. Not so many though, about 8-10 a day. With that kind of number, I was earning 50-75 cents on average daily. I was happy.
Being content, I never visited the site to do changes nor created more backlinks to it. But I was still receiving constant clicks on the site on that 50-75 cents-per-day-average.
After a month, I was shocked by this website’s earnings. I open my Adsense account almost everyday and I started seeing that this website received earnings of 2 dollars per day. But, the traffic was still the same. So I continued to observe the website.
When I visited the website again after more than a month, I saw that the ads are still the same. Still the same targeted ads for that niche. However, when I checked my CPC (Cost Per Click), it went up to almost 400% of my CPC before.
I never received any notifications from Google about this BUT it seems that they optimized my website. I guess this is how Google will treat your website if you do publish ads on targeted traffic.
Today, the website still makes money for me on autopilot with increasing CPC. Even though I did not create backlinks to it anymore, to my delight, Google has ranked the website number 1 for the keyword I was targeting making my website receive more traffic and more money.
With this experience, I can say that Google has returned a great favor to me and to my website. Gradually, it’s returning this same kind of favor to my other niche sites too.
