Last week, I had a fruitful discussion with Papa Bear about our online income. We try to compare two online income that are proven but different, Google Adsense and Nuffnang. As we know Google Adsense tend to work well with English content with high paying keywords. As Nuffnang, I have been told that only local IP will be count in. Meaning traffic from Malaysia only will be turn into money.Source from Mr Akubetul

That explain why my wife’s blog, The Other Side of ME, earn more than my lankapo.com through Nuffnang. Even the statistic show that my number is better than her. So right now, I have to choose and focus on either Nuffnang or Google Adsense. As majority of traffic from this blog come from outside of Malaysia.As I am active with Entrecard. If I want to earn from Google Adsense, I have to post entry in English. Ok this is where my problem lies, my English is not that good to capture more audience. Yup, I have to admit. It is really important to be comfortable with your entry to attract more reader and make them to revisit your again. I can’t do that with my English writing.
That is why I got to reactivate back my old blog in Bahasa Melayu, Damiaanura.com to attract more local Blogger. With this blog, I can write freely and within a short time. As for English blog, I have to do some research and draft first. Sometime it took 2 -3 days for me to write one post. I am not like you guys or Papa bear that can write as simple as that. I need more time to think the right and exact word to explain my points.
All this while, I thought you can only make money through English blog, but Nuffnang prove me wrong.As a lot of my friend earn a lot of money through Nuffnang with Bahasa Melayu blog. It takes me 2-3 months to earn my USD 100 through Google Adsense while my friend earn RM 500 – RM 600 per month. The keyword is traffic. There is no point to write about popular keywords if you fail to capture and mesmerize your visitor. You need to be unique and touch your visitor’s heart.
What leave this blog ? No la. I will still maintain this blog it just that I will focus more on my traffic.Share my experience on blogging and making money online using Google Adsense.Adsense is quite challenging, you can earn more through clicks or high traffic. As for now I need to restructure this blog to focus more on Adsense while DamiaAnura.com on Nuffnang.
So, no matter what language do you write, just make sure you are good at it and attract high traffic as to monetize your blog or site will be easy. But if you blog just for fun, its up to you as long as you happy with it. :). Happy blogging and Selamat Hari Raya to all my Muslim readers.
Back in 2006, my intention to blog is to explore something new and just for fun. Since it is free like Blogspot and WordPress.com. Plus, it’s really cool when you can tell your friend or chicks to visit your blog at lankapo.com rite ?. I am quite popular at that time. 🙂

So when l heard and confirmed by my colleague that you can make money online using Adsense , Nuffnang (Malaysian Ad Network) and others ads network, my intention totally changed to money now. So I just write what other blogger already done. Things like “Increase Your Traffic”,”Improve Your SEO Ranking” or “Make Money Online” are too saturated in this blogsphere. That’s add my blog to million of Making Money Online blog and just a John Chow wannabe. How can I tell other what to do when I am still a newbie too just like them.
After reading How to Find Your Passion by Glen Allsopp from Pluginid.com , I was inspired. I never look blogging the same way again. I should find my passion instead. The author guide you to find your inner strength and what you suppose to write about rather than following others foot step. Make your own.
Recently, I only manage to update my blog once a week. Totally blank.I cannot think of something new on making money online, struggle to find the motivation to write and to come up with post ideas. Now I want to write all about my experience along the way on making money online, blogging tools and plugin that I want to share and anything that make me feel good by sharing it for benefit of others. Sharing and not teaching, remember that.
My experience when I shares about using Tune Card was totally worth it. I manage to earn money through Adsense unintentionally and get high SEO ranking for the keyword of Tune Money and Tune Card. My post on experience using Tune Card, a prepaid Visa card to cash out money from PayPal become popular since I was the first to blog about it.
FYI, It took 12 month just to get $ 2 through Adsense, but only 2 months to reach $100 when I post about tune card. See,when you post a unique content that benefit others, money will come after that.
Lesson Learned Here
So if you want to be popular and become authority in your niche, be unique and share your experience and knowledge that will benefit others. Not just writing and following what already being told. Your reader will be like “I have seen that before”, “hey, I already read that in ProBlogger” hehe.
When you are expert at certain thing, you will write like a river flow . Ideas will keep coming. Remember money will follow when you capture your reader intention.They will keep coming back to hear more from you. Just make sure you enjoy the excitement through blogging, because that is more important.
We can find a job,make loan or marry to a rich husband/wife to get money,but happiness is precious.

Last week I received an email surprisingly from Google Adsense team.They warned me for having adult and mature content in one of my celebrity update blog.
They asked me to remove 2 of my posting that have adult and mature content or action will be taken.Of course they will not arrest me for not fully understand their policies. But if my account get banned, all my earning will be suspended. I heard a lot of blogger mourning because their thousand dollar income is banned by Adsense Team. So before thing get worse, better I remove all my posting with nude,topless,sex tape and explicit pictures.
To be honest, there are no such picture in my celebrity blog just tags to improve my SEO. It just hot story and juicy content hehe. But since Google Adsense did not like my idea, so to be safe I removed all my posting that is not safe to watch with my children or my boss. (more…)

I love Google Adsense , I love the whole world .huppi yada huppi yadaaa
I came across Turnip Blog,while fulfilling my duties on dropping my Entrecard 300 per day which I never make it.
Turnip mentions method to filter your Google Adsense’s Ad from MFA (Made For Ad) site and spammed sites.It is actually the combination of Adsense Filter List and service called Adsblacklist.In return, you will get higher paying key words and make more money online per click. From my experience, the highest keyword that I get is $ 1.20 per click. Imagine if I can get that keyword for 10 click per day, wouldn’t that be cool. More bling bling for me
