in Announcements, Make Money

2011 is the number of the year which means bye bye to 2010 and also bye bye to December. I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year and I wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year as well.

There’s no way around it, you’re probably here to read the December 2010 numbers for TechPatio.com, so here you go…

Conclusion: January ’11

Visitors are still increasing slightly. I’d like more visitors of course but at least it’s not dropping – and considering that I’m not doing much marketing (none) for the blog, at the moment, then I’m satisfied.

As for earnings, I’m satisfied as well. It’s a bit less than December but unlike many previous months with higher incomes, this month all the income “came to me”. I didn’t go out there and look for business partners or offers. I just sat back and created content while waiting for them to come to me. This probably means I spend less time to make $350 a month than the amount of time I spent back when earnings were in the $450 range. I can live with that. Remember that your own time is not free either!

It’s good to see that Kontera reached $10/month now.

Oh! Your new visitors are getting higher and higher in number and your earning too, even it’s a lower amount than the previous month but it still a good amount because you have done a zero marketing….

Keep going, we the blog readers are with you 😉

Thanks for sharing.

I can’t believe Carloline’s breasts are still hanging in there (get it?) in the #1 position.

Shows the power of search as I assume they are getting here by typing that into google and linking here.

I just checked from here in Atlanta and you are in position #3 for [Caroline Wozniacki Breasts] on Google.

Can you tell from your Google Analytics how many clicks you got last month from Google on for that term?

That’s unreal isn’t it?

“Can you tell from your Google Analytics how many clicks you got last month from Google on for that term?” – yes I can, but it’s a business secret 😉

And yes, it’s amazing that – after more than a year – that breast article is still so popular, but surely it’s because of the Google placement. I can also see it my analytics when she’s playing tournaments, then I get a few more hits on it than usual.

Ha ha, I knew it was a secret…and I know why. 🙂

But you know, for your site this is not a bad thing at all. You can pick up some subscribers out of this stream of visitors since your site has such broad appeal.

A site like mine would be too specific to benefit from a broad stream of visitors like this, but I could see yours benefiting from it.

Of course, you already know all this.

Congratulations! But I recommend to you not to facilitate information of adsense publicly. It’s possible that it goes in opposition to his policies
