I had a better month. I made a whopping $3.62, most of it through a single click! I was on track to be just as bad as July but my SEO changes have started bringing in more traffic.
I did make one big change that will affect the Google Adsense income, I changed my template. That caused the sidebar to disappear and valuable ad space.
I'll continue to monitor this but I might ditch the Google Adsense in favor of actual sponsors. I'll sell a small ad space for a reasonable price based on my unique pageviews.
