I was looking at my last 30 days of impressions and clicks on Adsense today, so I decided to run an analysis of what is going on and what should be going on.

 

If you're just starting out trying to monetize your sites, as well, maybe you are also looking at tables like the one below, trying to make some decisions about how to continue writing or marketing. Anyhow, the most important part is the estimated earnings, and mine are not a lot each month, but it's something, and all from the United States. I have about five websites that generate most of the traffic, so we're talking about 300 Google-certified views a month, or 10 a day, per site, on average. Yes, I know plenty of sites get 1500 or 15,000 page views per day, and that's when you can start imagining retirement from having to write decent content, since $300 or $3000 a month in Adsense earnings would be pretty nice. I'm hoping with more exposure, I can maintain and increase.

But that's in America. I have NO EARNINGS outside of my country. First, why am I getting hits from other countries? Second, what can I do to make some money off those hits? I know from Amazon that I've sold my #1 selling Kindle ebook to folks in Canada and Australia, but Canada's barely in the top 10 on this list, and Australia had only two page views for the month. Basically, I have to believe Amazon is selling my book more than my sites.

What about Brazil? Tops in page views after the US. Is it because of my article about the Cobeus Tribe? Perhaps, but I won't get many clicks from college professors researching cannibalism. But what about England, Italy, and Germany? I wonder what I have for them and how I can capitalize on it in some way. I guess I'll have to curl up with my laptop and Google Analytics if I'm really concerned. Then again, I think my best bet, as a web designer, education guru, and writer, is probably to focus mostly on the people I know (and who click on ads once in a while). However, I would recommend taking a look at your Google Adsense reports once in a while in order to see if you're missing an opportunity to sell something to someone you didn't even know was visiting.
