April 2013 Blog Income Report

April was the start of something that I have been talking about doing for the past couple of years, I finally got my act together and started to focus more on work. The kick up the backside has been a long time coming and although it wasn’t a major increase in hours it was definitely a good place to start and it certainly showed in my income.

April Highlights

Returning to guest posting – Guest posting was something that I started to back away from because I became disillusioned with the way that posters would disappear as soon as their articles were published and would leave me to reply to comments – sometimes on subjects I am not very knowledgeable about.

But I have decided to go back to it because although it was frustrating having to reply to the comments it did bring in a nice chunk of traffic and gave the blog a bit more content.

Visitor Count & Page Impressions

The unique visitor count for April stands at 949, which is a slight decrease of 71 from the month of March.

The page impression count for April stands at 2,185, which is a decrease of 227 from the month of March.

– I fully expect the traffic to increase next month now that I’m putting more effort in and accepting guest posts.

– An increase of over $66 after putting in a couple of hours more a week is rather encouraging.

– CPMLeader is a new network that I have been working with and they paid me last week (minimum payout is $1).

– Yahoo Bing Network seem to be a very good replacement for Adsense and in April I earnt more than I did in about 3 or 4 months with Adsense. :)
