After a long time of Google Adsense struggle of about 9 months, I finally received my first Google Adsense check. The check was issued and sent on April 28th, 2011 and I received it on the 17th of the next month through standard airmail delivery (this varies from country to country). I was paid in Check/Cheque because that is the only payment method available to my country (Nigeria) as at the time. The check was USD $195.67 for a period of about 9 months duration – July 2010 to March 2011. There have been so many screenshots and pictures of Google Adsense earnings all around the Internet and while few of them are genuine, majority are ‘photoshopped’. Here I will be sharing my first Google Adsense check and don’t even think it that it is a fake. Anyway, if you don’t believe, it won’t cost me any dime because soon I will be receiving my next Google Adsense Check.
Google Adsense as a Passive Income
To many, it is quite a very long time period to receive a payment from Google Adsense but I must say that Google Adsense is not a get rich quick scheme.
But the very moment you get your first payment, it is a good sign for next Google Adsense venture. The first Google Adsense payment always connote we are in the right track to start earning passive from Google Adsense program. It is clearly observed that the waiting duration of the next payment after the first will drastically reduced. It is even said by some that the second Google Adsense payment duration may decrease 80% from the first payment waiting duration. The second statement works for me in that, my second Google Adsense payment follows in the following month. And it has been increasing on a daily basis since the first payment. Also to be in this part of the world, it is good for me to have a good source of passive income from Google Adsense. I can also confirm to you that my Google Adsense venture is in the right track because since the first Google Adsense payment, I have earned USD $72 the next month (April 2011) which I believe will increase with time.
