January 2010: Blog Summary & Income Report

A new month has just begun and so it’s time to take a look back at the previous month and see how TechPatio did when it comes to traffic and income. Unfortunately, I messed up with Google Analytics in December so all my statistics for that months are gone (never recorded) and I’m missing the first few days of January as well.

Here are the numbers:

Conclusion: January ’10

As you can see, the only thing increasing is actually just income from ReviewMe, thanks to some good sponsored post during January. My AdSense is still really crappy, I guess my readers just don’t like clicking on an in-post AdSense ad from time to time 🙂

I have a feeling that traffic is about to increase as well and I’m sure February will be at the same level of January if not better, despite February being a few days shorter. That’s at least what I’ll try to make happen.

Blog comments are still very low compared to my early months and that’s surely because I don’t comment much on other blogs myself. I still read many blogs but it takes a lot of time to read and comment, so often I don’t comment unless I feel I really have something to add. Sorry bloggers, it’s not because I don’t want to comment, but I have to put my own content-writing as top priority 🙂

  2. Looks like you traffic has dropped quite a bit. Do you have any idea why?

    I posted my January results (my first month of blogging), got decent traffic – but no income so far. Thanks for the links to others reports!

    • It’s probably because of less activity from my side (as well as less blog commenting) plus some technical issues with my hosting, meant quite a lot of downtime.

      I included a link to your post as well.

  3. Your adsense earnings is low. You can try promoting affiliate products if your visitors are ad blind.

    • Adsense sucks, at least on my blog 🙂 Also, please don’t use keywords in your name if you want to keep the link back to your website.

      Thanks for your comment though.

  4. I find it weird that you’ve only been getting that many visitors. I mean, your contents are good and you consistently publish posts..hm

    Hope you can get to tens of thousands visitors per month one day!
