How fast is this year going along? I swear it does not feel a month since I wrote my last Blog Income Report. Next month I’ll be 31 for crying out loud! And In About four months it will be the end of the year!
The summer is not really a good time for small blog income makers as people jet off on holiday and most of us see a dip in traffic and revenue.
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
Last month I decided to give Google Analytics a go as I have heard a lot of impressive reviews about how accurate they can be. To be honest I was very shocked at how low my traffic was being reported with regards to, say, StatTraq plugin.
StatTraq was reporting my traffic to be over 30,000 a month but Google Analytics is saying it is under 1,000. I’ll have to contact the creator of StatTraq to see how it gauges traffic.
Anyway the unique visitor count for July stands at 452.
Google reported that the number of page views for July was 808.
This means that each unique visitor looked at 1.79 pages.
Google’s search engine accounted for 25.88% of my traffic
Money Money Money!
Adbrite = $0.09 (-$0.11)
Adsense = $7.78 (-$4.26)
Adtoll = $0.00 (-$0.57)
Bidvertiser = $0.00 (-$0.18)
Clicksor = $0.10 (-$0.45)
Kontera = $0.02 (-$0.02)
Reviews = $40.00 (+$9.00)
Smowtion = $0.15 (+$0.08)
Social Spark = $18.21
TLA = $21.00 (+$4.07)
Total = $87.35 (+$23.71)
* Social Spark is a new one this month. I’m very happy with the outcome so far.
* Although with Adtoll I made nothing in clicks I have received advertising requests from companies so should see the money from them in the coming months.
* Bidvertiser has been disappointing to say the least for me. I’m geting tired of them being selective over which clicks they will accept and which ones they won’t.
* I’m going to give Kontera to the end of the year to sort itself out otherwise I shall bin them. $0.02 a month is simply not worth it and like Bidvertiser they are slective on which clicks they accept.
