Here are the details of the traffic to my blogs and the income report for July 2012.
I hope you would get some inspiration from the discussion of my numbers over the months!
If you want to share your blog’s statistics, you are most welcome to do so in the comments.
The combined earnings from these 3 blogs for the last month was:
The revenue was earned from Google AdSense ads and affiliate commissions.
Detailed Income Report
The income for my blogs has been increasing steadily. However, the earning from each blog is still quite low to provide a blog-wise break up for the income report.
When the combined earning from these three blogs achieves a respectable amount (which I plan to attain by Dec 2012 – so stay tuned and keep visiting!), I would start providing a detailed earnings breakup in my income report for each blog.
Analysis of the current month
Compared to June 2012, the posting has remained steady in July 2012. However, this is not a good thing, because the posting in both June and July has been quite dismal – just 4 blog posts across the 3 blogs. As you would see, its impact has been felt on both visitor traffic and in the income report.
July 2012 has been another bad month in terms of visitor traffic – the traffic to all my blogs has further decreased.
The NY blog has had seen good growth in visitor traffic for many months, but in June & July, it has decreased significantly by about 40% in each month.
The traffic to the Cruise blog has also decreased in July 2012 – again by about 40%. However, this can be attributed to it being shifted to a brand new domain (please click here for more details on this) – in fact, I am happy that it has reduced by only 40%. I am expecting the traffic to pick up significantly going forward.
The traffic to this blog too has decreased by about 40%, and this is on top of the 75% decrease in June 2012.
This dismal 2-month performance has proved that although this drop is partially due to Google’s algorithm updates, it is mainly because of my low posting frequency.
The income report follows the pattern shown by the traffic report. My income from these 3 blogs has reduced by about 40% in July 2012 compared to June 2012!
The income report had been showing a steady growth for the last few months, but the blogs have seen a big setback in the last 2 months.
Plan for the next month
In August 2012, I want to have a good frequency of posting on my blogs – I am targeting 9 – 10 posts on each of my blogs. I know I said the same thing for July, but I truly believe that this time, the severe impact on the traffic and income report has been the right kind of kick in the b**t!
Although I write the content for this blog exclusively, I have outsourced some of the content creation for the NY and Cruise blogs through oDesk. I am very happy with the kind of results I am getting from oDesk, and would be continuing to outsource through it.
