The earnings are divided into two main categories, Accumulated and Received. Accumulated earnings also detail any payments received from that category during the month. Earnings are then further broken down into the areas from which the earnings were made. Earnings for the previous month follow the current month’s revenue in brackets.
For a full breakdown of article related progress and earnings, see the complete article on InfoBarrel.
Most of the work done during the month was related to articles, and any associated affiliate programmes, rather than other sources.
Earnings were up this month although this was primarily due to winning the monthly competition on InfoBarrel, as many areas have seen a decrease in income, something that is not unexpected at this time of year. Bubblews earnings improved slightly, and InfoBarrel saw the best tier earnings ever, but Amazon sales dropped and no eBay sales were made. RedGage earnings are included for the first time, as this is the first time the figures have been available since the site was redone.
Amazon, despite its drop, still saw one of its best months – which, given the amount earned, is not that impressive. Bubblews continues to account for an enormous proportion of advertising revenue.
Some of the links in this section are affiliate links that can earn me a commission, or revenue share, at no extra expense to you.
Accumulated income is earnings from the month that were accumulated to accounts, to be paid out at a later date.
AdSense: $23.36 ($27.34) – This includes YouTube income and has been converted to dollars from pound Sterling.
Amazon: $1.37 ($17.57)
InfoLinks: $1.44 ($0.72)
Miscellaneous: $1.00 ($0.73) – This is earnings from various minor programmes
These are, currently, earnings from games on the Flash platform. Fizzy is still being reported as an attack site, and there adverts are still causing warnings from Norton, which likely isn’t helping revenue there. In addition, earnings from December and January are not being properly displayed in the finalised figures – they are, in fact, missing.
Fizzy: $11.99 ($18.44)
GamesChart: $0.15 ($0.05)
Kongregate: $.06 ($0.37)
MindJolt: $1.03 ($0.85)

HubPages: $0.53 ($1.26)
InfoBarrel: $119.65 ($11.15) – $100 of this was from winning the monthly competition.
RedGage: $0.02 (N/A)
TOTAL: $174.11 ($92.41)
Received Payments (Monthly):
These were payments received during the month, excluding any mentioned earlier under accumulated. These are programmes for which a monthly payment, or payments, is usual, rather than those which build up to reach the payment threshold. This includes those that make the occasional monthly payment without accumulating earnings.
CPMStar: $0 ($1.31)
Epic Game Ads: $0.49 ($0.53)
Again, this is money that wasn’t earned through other affiliate programmes.
Bubblews: $250.70 ($228.01) – This is both cleared and pending PayPal payments.

eBay: $0 ($20.58)
TOTAL: $258.05 ($268.77)
