May 2012 Blog Income Report

Can you believe that we are already half way through the year? I can’t help but wonder where the time has gone as it seems like only last month that I was making my goals at the start of 2012.

Lack of Motivation returned this month to kick me very hard somewhere where only a few people have dared to ever venture. Damn you Lack of Motivation for continuing to thwart my attempts to make a success of this blog.

Page Impressions & Visitor Count

The unique visitor count for May stands at 1,863 which is a massive decrease of 1,310 from the month of April.

The page impression count for May stands at 3,724, which is a huge decrease of 2,696 from the month of April.

This means that each unique visitor looked at 2.00 pages.

My bounce rate has dropped from 72.92% to 61.62%.

– Well the recent Google Penguin update really did kick my ass didn’t it? My blog traffic fell by over half within the space of a month To be honest I’m at a loss as to what to do, I think for this month I’ll just keep up the blog commenting & social media promoting.

Show Me The Money!

Adbrite = $0.44 (-$1.05)
Fidelity Media (AdJuggler) = $0.13 (-$0.11)
Passive Income = $15.89 (-$14.93)
Private Advertising = $1.00 (-$25.00)
Private Writing = $350.00 (-$180.65)
PulsePoint (AdsDaq) = $0.46 (+$0.40)
Reviews = $28.50 (-$72.75)
Smowtion = $0.33 (+$0.23)
TLA = $4.00 (+$1.50)
UnderDog = $2.10 (+$1.75)
Zapunited = $0.12 (-$0.01)

Total = $402.97 (-$292.12)

– The dreaded Lack of Motivation meant that I didn’t complete as many reviews & private writing assignments as I should have done. Hopefully my impending holiday to Ireland will give me a kick up the arse to do more work.

    • The + & – in my report refer to the difference from last month.

      For example:

      UnderDog = $2.10 (+$1.75) = I made $1.75 more than last month with this network
      Zapunited = $0.12 (-$0.01) = I made $0.01 less than last month with this network.

      Hope that helps. 🙂

  4. I just discovered this site today and find this income report very useful.
