February. Such a short month. Only 28 days. Never the less, these past 28 days were very interesting for TechPatio, as the table below will show you. Maybe it’s because of the winter or maybe TechPatio.com is just growing? Well, have a look at the table and then I’ll discuss a few of the numbers afterwards:

Conclusion: February ’10
NEW (ALMOST) RECORD! Pageviews was slightly better than my September 2009 stats and visits were slightly less than that month too. Thank you, Google Street View. The post I did with funny pictures from the danish Google Street View launch, attracted many new visitors to my blog.
I also need to thank TweetAdder for helping me getting my Twitter follower count up from 500 to over 4,000 in just a few months (see graph to the right). Because of that, Twitter is now the number one site for sending traffic to TechPatio, in the “referring sites”-category. When I tweet a link about a new blog post, it’s not just two or three people clicking on it anymore, like it was in the beginning…
Another bonus with all my Twitter followers is MyLikes, which you can kinda compare to sponsored tweets, I guess. Tweets are clearly marked with the #ad sign, so people know it’s an advertisement. That gave me $3 during the last few days of February, not much, but I still have pending clicks that’s not approved yet and I think MyLikes will bring me around $20 for the month of March. If you’re a Twitter user, go check out MyLikes and see if it’s something for you too. They pay out every Friday as long as you’ve earned more than $2.
February was also the month where I finally got my Amazon income started. I haven’t promoted many products on Amazon at all, but it’s easier to do with my photography-related posts and it seems photographers are interested in buying. Some Lowepro bags etc. has been purchased through my Amazon links. I’m sure the buyer will be very happy with the quality of Lowepro. I know I am!
I’m still struggling with Clickbank, but then again, I’m not really promoting any products there at the moment. Thesis (WordPress SEO optimized theme) is just a random banner every now and then, so not much promoting being done on that part either.
AdSense continues to suck for me, to say the least 🙂 That’s why I’ve decided to do some testing with AdSense in March to figure out what kind of AdSense ads my readers are most inclined to click on, and then focus on that for the future. Up until now, it’s been too unorganized. I hope I can change that.

Other Summary & Income Reports
Usually I include a list of other blogs, right here, with similar income/summary reports like this. I guess I’m out too early with the February stats, as only a few of the ones I usually include, are ready at this time. So I figured, instead of just including a few, you can just leave a comment below and link to your blog/post and share it with the world.
