A week ago, we installed and set up our AdSense account.

 

Today, we’ want to share our first Impressions with you:

  • Our Expectations vs Reality.
  • Do we like the Ads shown with Auto Ads?
  • etc.

 

As we mentioned in our previous Post, there is a lot of information about AdSense on the Internet but, much of this information is questionable (basically, we don’t trust it).

  • We want to share our experience with AdSense in the most transparent and honest way possible.

 

In case you don’t know, in this section we talk about How we are building this Website: our SEO strategy, Theme and Plugins we use, our Real Results (Pageviews and Users we have)…

 

As usual, this Post will be divided into 2 different parts:

1. Our first week in Google AdSense.

  • What results we obtained.
  • Our first Impressions about AdSense’s Auto Ads.

2. Our Google Analytics report for today: Users and Pageviews we have.

 

Let’s begin:

1. Our first week in Google AdSense.

It has been an exciting week for us:

  • Analyzing AdSense, the menus, all the options…

 

But… What results did we have?

 

Our first days in Google AdSense

 

We generated 3.67 euros.

  • So, as you might be thinking, we have a long way to go.

 

But… How much traffic did we have?

 

 

As we mentioned in previous Posts, on Holidays, our numbers decrease.

  • 2 weeks ago, we were receiving 2,000 Page Views per week.

 

Are these results good or bad?

We still don’t know if these are average results for a Site like ours.

  • We will wait a few weeks before reaching any conclusion.
    • Also, we don’t trust much of the information you can find on the Internet or YouTube.

 

But, from what we have read so far… These numbers should improve.

 

Why are our AdSense results so low?

 

These results make us think that, maybe, AdSense needs time.

We imagine that Google must study your Site and Users for a while:

  • What they are interested about.
  • Their average profiles.
  • What Ads would give the best results.
  • etc.

Moreover, since we have Auto Ads enabled, the Ads Position, Size and Placement should also be optimized over time.

  • Google decides these 3 variables by trying different configurations.

 

Our First Impressions on AdSense

 

Our experience with Google AdSense in these first days has been very satisfactory.

  • It is an easy platform to use.
  • You can easily configure your Ads.
  • Google gives you a lot of useful information:”good practices”, things to avoid, etc.

 

And, the Auto Ads, aren’t be placed in annoying places (we were worried about it).

  • We published an interesting Page about how to install and configure Adsense’s Auto Ads.

 

As we told you before: We’ll have to wait a bit before reaching a conclusion.

 

2. Our Google Analytics report for today: Users and Pageviews we have.

Our numbers are still “low”.

 

Users:

This past week, we received 959 Users.

  • Compared to the 1,400 we had 2 weeks ago… it seems a little low.
    • Remember: Summer comes with a decrease in website traffic for us.

 

Pageviews:

We currently receive 7,286 pageviews per month.

  • 2 weeks ago, we had an average of 8,261 pageviews per month.

As you can appreciate in the image above, our Page Views have decreased since the end of June.

 

Our goal was to reach 10,000 pageviews per month this summer.

  • However, it will be a difficult goal to achieve.

 

This next week, we’ll take some days off: we really need to get some rest.

As always: thanks for being there!
