Adsense+Analytics Integration

I just signed-up with the integration of Analytics and Adsense today. It's a great addition to the already useful information that Analytics gather and display. You can now see what contents are giving you money. I think it's one of the missing links that makes Analytics and Adsense indispensable. Sweet!!!

In case you didn't see, the link is under the Contents Menu.

Currently, only one site can be integrated. Or maybe I just don't know how to do it yet. But at any rate, it's a welcome development and I simply love it! Kudos to the Google teams who worked on it. Keep them coming!

The Google 2008 Zeitgeist

Based on the latest 2008 Year-End Google Zeitgeist , the following are the top rising keywords for Singapore and the Philippines. I'm currently studying the report for my next project.

Fastest Rising in Singapore

1. edison chen

2. olympics

3. facebook

4. iphone

5. f1

6. google map

7. htc

8. maps

9. wiki

10. beijing olympics

Fastest Rising in Philippines

1. cabal


3. psp


5. emo


7. naruto

8. multiply

9. mozilla

10. realize lyrics

I have been targeting some the keywords mentioned here albeit I'm more focused on the long tails. Of course, these keywords are highly competitive and it would be hard to be at the top of the SERP. I'm not that good with SEO yet so I'll just focus first with the long tail as long as my target rising keyword is there.

November Revenue Report

It's belated but I'll post it anyway.

  • Adsense : $286.15

  • TLA : $147.83

  • Project Wonderful : $0.00

  • Total : $433.98

Bleak December

At least one post in seo philippines forum has confirmed that eCPM has dropped significantly. And that's exactly what we see on our websites... plunging as much as 46% in eCPM. If you can see $0.05 to $0.10 cost-per-click in November and earlier, what we see now is $0.01 and a max of $0.03 per click. We still get the same number of visitors and the same CTR.

We're still lucky that we were able to launch a community site and it already starts contributing. So for now, we're still at 60% from previous month. Still, that's too low we might not be able to hit $200 for the month of December for adsense.

We're expecting a decline from TLA as one of our sites saw its Alexa rank plunge to 1,000,000++ mark. Page rank also lost one notch for that site while the main money driver has seen its Alexa rank dip by 40,000 but with the same PR. That contributed to lower TLA rates on both sites.

What We Are Doing

We need to harness everything entrecard has to offer so we plan to drop ecs again starting this week. There are several posts are also on the line which will be posted within the month (some are already posted earlier this month). And lastly, we are doing a comment barrage as well as exchange link in various websites.

Hopefully, all these changes will provide fruitful results sooner than later.
