The Master Index of Google Analytics Actuals for DisplacedGuy.Com
3 Year Anniversary on March 2013! It has been a three years since I started posting actual Google Analytics and Adsense statistics for DisplacedGuy.Com. I’m happy to see that they are somewhat popular and I love to hear comments from people who learned something or who want to share something! Thank you!
This master index was created to organize all of the “actual Adsense statistics” articles that have been created over the last three years and make it easier to find them or view them in chronological order.
I re-read a few of my older Adsense reports while creating this page and found it interesting to see how my attitude, thoughts and knowledge about Adsense and the general thought of making money online progressed since March 2010. I was a little embarrassed to see how often I made spelling and/or grammar mistakes so if you happen to notice any please don’t hesitate to let me know via comment!
Note: I recently learned that there is an Adsense policy against showing actual statistics but I think that what I am doing is within the boundaries of the rules as I usually block out the site name and never show actual advertiser information.
