May Income Statistics – Nothing Special

Time for the monthly online income statistics. As I usually like to point out, these numbers aren’t only for my blog; otherwise I might never have anything to talk about. Instead, this is for anything I’ve done online.

Here are the actual numbers:

Adsense – $80.63
Paid Ads – $40.35
Link XL – $2.50
Infolinks – $.49
Total – $123.97

Less than either of the last two months, but I’m still encouraged by that Adsense figure. Overall, it means I’ll be getting a check at the end of this month, which means I’m now averaging a check at least every two months.

Where am I at this point? Well, I don’t really know. Truthfully, I think I’m doing something wrong as it comes to my Commission Junction stuff, but if I complete one particular project that I’m presently working on that might change a little bit within the next month or so; no, I’m not giving a heads up just yet, but y’all know me, which means I’ll be talking about it at some point.

And, as you see, I still don’t have a page rank, but my paid advertising figure went up; I find that kind of interesting. What I also find interesting is that my RSS subscribers have gone up, although it does change from day to day. In May, I actually had a couple of days where it showed me as having 89 subscribers; I’m still shooting for those 500 subscribers by the end of the year. Hey, we all have to have dreams, right?

So, let’s talk about traffic while I’m at it. I said that I was going to change the frequency of my posting on this blog and that we’d see what happened with traffic. Many of you who are regular visitors said you’d like this because it would give you a better chance to keep up with the content. Well, it’s been a failure, I have to say. Here are the numbers for the last three months:

March – 1,918 visits
April – 1,486 visits
May – 1,265 visits

This tells me that when I write more, obviously I get more visitors. Not only that, but I took a look at who’s been writing comments, and it seems that most of my formerly regular visitors and contributors haven’t been coming by lately, which means that if it weren’t for the few new visitors I might not have anyone left. Thus, it’s time to increase the number of posts once again, which I can easily do. Interesting experiment, though; I really hoped it would work, but nope, the “masses” have stopped speaking.

Overall, it does seem that revenue really is impacted by traffic, or lack thereof. I’ve noticed it on my medical billing site also, as it generates most of my Adsense revenue. When people come, I have great days, but when they don’t, nada. I hope to be doing some other things with that site also, since it’s my biggest cash generator, but I’m not quite sure what just yet.

So, there are the numbers; y’all can comment as you please. Heck, I just hope some of you come back. 🙂

October Report; The Good And The Ugly

Well, this should prove to be interesting; nah. The stats are in for the month of October, and I’m only going to talk about what I made with the blog and nothing else. But I’m also going to talk stats.

So, for the month on the blog, I made,… $9.44. Hey, it’s a start, and for the blog, it’s my biggest month. Isn’t that a shame? Well, even with a number like that, there’s some positives. Even though I still am undecided on it, I made $7.60 from Text Link Ads, and that was for just over 2 weeks of being on the site. And I made .36 cents from Widget Bucks, and that wasn’t up long either. The other money was .98 cents from Adsense and .50 cents from one of my Commission Junction ads. That’s the first money I’ve made off a CJ ad, so I’ll take what I can get.

Now, some other stats. Per Google Analytics, I had 1,169 visitors in October, the most ever. Of all things, traffic started taking off with the first, then the second post about Blog Action Day, a very personal post on a very big day internationally. So, this shows that participating in a community effort can be good for your traffic, as well as your soul. Also, it’s the first month that visits to the blog surpassed visits to my business site or business blog; need to work on that some more, I see. Per my ISP, I had over 12,200 unique visitors for the month, another high, more than 4,000 more than last month, which had been a previous high for me. Here, however, it’s far lower than my business site, which was just 65 visits under 20,000, which is actually down from the highs I had over the summer; so be it. One day someone will be able to explain to me what these visits mean compared to Google’s Analytics, but for my purposes, I’m figuring Google’s telling me who’s actually stopping by.

And there you go. Of course, I’ve already said that I was going to step up marketing efforts this month, so maybe I can increase some of these figures more. But I still hope to provide intriguing content otherwise.

By the way, I’ve mentioned about the newsletters that I write for my main business on business topics, but I don’t think I’ve ever shared a link to a newsletter. So, I’d like to share one with you, the one previous to my latest one, on credibility; it was what led to this blog post on credibility. I guess I can even inspire myself sometimes.
