Welcome to yet another edition of my monthly income & traffic reports. In these reports I try to show you what can be achieved by one person running a blog, in terms of visitors, pageviews and income from certain programs such as the widely popular Google AdSense but also MyLikes for Twitter, especially if you’ve used TweetAdder to boost your Twitter follower count.
TechPatio.com has been in the air for 11 months now and at this time I’m not sure if I want to continue with the monthly reports after the first year, maybe I should change it to quarterly reports – or maybe I should remove them completely. I haven’t decided yet, but if you have an opinion on the subject, please chime in by leaving a comment below.
Here are the numbers from the past months, including May:
|Avg. time on site:||0:56||0:56||0:50||1:03|
|Direct ad sales||$20||n/a||n/a||n/a|
Conclusion: May ’10
A small decrease in visits and pageviews, more or less as I expected. I had a busy month and not too much time for blogging, so without updates, regular readers doesn’t come back. I did absolutely nothing to seek an income in May, taking only the opportunities that was offered to me instead of going out there looking for sponsored reviews etc. to do.
All in all I’m satisfied with the $56 for doing “almost nothing” except what I would otherwise done, blogging-wise. My hosting fee is somewhere around $20 a month (can’t really remember to be honest), so at least my hosting fees were paid and I also donated $10 to an orphanage via Springs of Hope (Kenya) as part of the Scott Kelby Old School Photo Challenge.
I’m glad to see Google AdSense finally increased more than the usual few bucks. Hopefully I can break through $20 soon. Thanks to all of my readers who click on my AdSense ads 🙂
