May 2011: Blog Summary & Income Report

by Klaus on June 19, 2011

in Announcements, Make Money

The blog summary & income report for May has been “slightly” delayed mostly due to me forgetting about it – so sorry about that, but here it is…

In the next blog summary & income report, for June, I have an announcement to make also. Since we’re currently in the middle of June, that report will of course not be posted for another few weeks – but stay tuned.

For now, here’s the May report:

Top 5 Most Viewed Posts: May ’11

Below you’ll find top 5 most viewed posts last month. When a post has been published doesn’t matter, it’s how many views each of them have had in the previous month. Here they are:

  1. The Best AirPrint Compatible Printers
  2. Caroline Wozniacki Breasts
  3. 10 Best Printers for Macs
  4. Aperture 3 Performance Fix – Make Slow Aperture Run Faster

I reserve the right to “no-follow” links if your site is not yet indexed in Google or if your site seems questionable or just an attempt to spam. In almost all cases, a real comment from a real human being will get a do-follow link, unless you enter keywords instead of your name, which is not allowed!

Still not bad figures. My months of earnings are kinda in a high-low-high-low kind of game as well.

This is really inspiring.

I have a blog which gets the same traffic as yours. But my adsense earnings are not so great. Can you please look at my blog and let me know what am I missing?

I think it’s okay, I don’t really do much checking during the month until it’s time to do the summary end of month 🙂

Nice going. It must be fun to earn a nice side income just from blogging!

Quite a bad month for me too, because there weren’t much sponsored posts and traffic went down because of the Panda update in April.

My traffic is coming back though since the past few days (after I optimized my posts for SEO) so earnings next month should be coming back to normal (hopefully)

Klaus, my earning also has come down by almost 40% for the month of May. I think major reson being Panda, however so far in this months, it is improving quite a bit. Thanks for sharing and motivating us.

May has been a dismal month for me in terms of earnings. The silver lining in your income report is the fact that your overall ecpm is quite good at around $10. You can take it from here and keep improving.

Looks like you are getting lots of traffic. I would have thought you would be making more with this much traffic. It’s still more then I make though.. Great work.
