In October 2020 I decided to start using WordPress. Something I had pondered on for a while but every time I went over to WordPress it just seemed so overwhelming. Especially since I was used to the very basic Blogger platform. Or basic in comparison to WordPress anyway.

So I spent over a week moving some articles across to WordPress and also creating some new ones.

I took the time to familiarize myself with the platform as best as I could, but there is going to be a whole lot of learning to be done with WordPress.

I had seen WordPress plugins and WordPress themes all over the internet, so I knew it was a much better platform to use than Blogger.

At the end of my first week, I decided to upgrade to Premium which meant I got a domain name included and was also auto accepted into WordAds. This meant I could display ads on my website straight away.

So a day after I launched WordAds on my site I was quite excited to see what the outcome would be.

I had been doing a lot of research into WordAds but found very little out there. So I’m going to share my journey with you.

A few things I have learned about WordAds so far:

  1. They start off showing generic ads which means you aren’t going to get a great CPM if anything to begin with… so be patient!
  2. They update your views in live time, but earnings and ad impressions are updated once every 24 hours.
  3. The CPM rate can fluctuate a lot! This is what I have learned from what I have read. Not what I have experienced personally yet. I will share my experience when I have been using WordAds. (See my daily stats below)
  4. You need a good amount of traffic (not fake or bot traffic) to generate a decent amount of earnings.
  5. Your earnings are estimated and will be confirmed at some point after the end of the month.

My stats for WordAds.

Please note that these are my personal stats and depend on a lot of different factors such as traffic location and content and do not necessarily represent what WordAds might be for you.

I noticed this morning on Day 4 (02 November 2020) that my earnings for the last three days has jumped up slightly. Not by a lot, but in a positive way. I will keep an eye on my previous days earnings as these may change again until the final months earnings are settled.

I’ve now decided to update my WordAds stats weekly.
