Some of your might have noticed that I have not made a post since the start of the month. I became annoyed and frustrated with my poor internet connection so decided to change to a better provider. Only problem was there was a three week wait before the new contract started.
I was not going to publish an income report for the month of August because of this but I thought it would not be right to miss out a month, after all I still received traffic and I did make some money despite not posting.
I started this as a little side project in November 2007 to determine if it was at all possible to earn proper money on the internet as many other people have claimed to have done before me.
Page Impressions & Visitor Count
Not surprisingly the stats for the month of August have dropped quite a bit. That is quite understandable as I have not made a single post in the past 31 days.
The unique visitor count for August stands at 331, which is down 121 on the month of July.
Google reported that the number of page views for August was 507, which is a big drop off 301 from July.
This means that each unique visitor looked at 1.53 pages.
Google’s search engine accounted for 34.74% of my traffic.

Adbrite = $0.21 (+$0.12)
Adsense = $8.25 (+$0.47)
Adtoll = $0.58 (+$0.58)
Bidvertiser = $0.14 (+$0.14)
Clicksor = $0.27 (+$0.17)
Kontera = $0.04 (+$0.02)
Reviews = $28.25 (-$11.75)
Smowtion = $0.27 (+$0.12)
Social Spark = $7.75 (-$10.46)
TLA = $17.67 (-$3.63)
Total = $63.43 (-$23.92)
* It looks like Kontera will be removed at the end of the year as they are paying out something like $0.01 per click.
* Bidvertiser continue to be incredibly selective about which clicks they accept and which they don’t. I think they will be gone at the end of the year as well.
