This blog.

Over the years it has actually had quite a few page views :-


But if I take the 3 years from 1st July 2011 to 30th June 2014 the total AdSense earnings are...

£26.07!**

Just so you know - I don;t recommend starting your own photo blog on blogger if your sole aim is to make a living from the AdSense earnings.*

 *I don't know everything. Maybe other people out there are doing just that. If so - please let me know in the comments.. :-)

** This is only for money-from-photos.com (if I knew how to easily include all the other country level domains like .co.uk and .com.eu etc. then I would, but I don't so I won't - but I can tell you that it wouldn't amount to a hill of beans) .

AdSense Earnings from photos-for-you.com June 2014

£6.51

You can see why I didn't rush to publish these figures on the 1st July!

Does anyone want to buy a photo web site off me?

PS - Looks like I somehow forgot to include earnings for May 2014 - here they are :-

£11.08

(Maybe this site will break even after hosting charges after all...)

Google Image Search / Imaguard for Wordpress.

The developers of imaguard have done a fabulous job, but I have had to admit defeat and disable the imaguard plugin as Google has (without good reason) de-indexed pretty much all of the images from photos-for-you.com.

Here's a graph or earnings since I implemented imaguard (though they would decreased significantly anyway because of what Google have done in turning Google Image Search into the sort of giant web-scraper that Google would look on with disdain if anyone else tried it).



Now all I have to do is wait 3 or 4 months to see if traffic starts coming back again...

Maybe it'll not be long before I am making more than the hosting costs!

AdSense Earnings for December 2013 - £3.55

It's official.

Photos-for-you.com is now earning so little from AdSense that it actually losing me money after hosting fees etc.

Just remember, that if you have followed all the advice about AdSense that I have ever given, you only have yourself to blame :-)

For the record here are the stats for December :-

AdSense Earnings - November 2013 For photos-for-you.com



Earnings dropped from £16.12 the previous month to £12.80.

Alarmingly, page views halved!

I guess photos-for-you.com will be on life support soon.

I could put a huge amount of extra effort into it to see what difference it makes - but I am not sure that it is worthwhile.

Here's the graph from the start of the year:
