December 2012 Blog Income Report

2012 has certainly been a mixed year for me both personally and professionally and I fully expected December to fizzle out like a slightly damp firework, after all November had been a very bad month so why would December be any different when I had not done anything major?

Well I did do one thing, I got my head down and worked as much as I could, even during the times when I couldn’t be bothered and just wanted to curl back up under my duvet I still forced myself to do a few hours and the result has been FANTASTIC!

Visitor Count & Page Impressions

The unique visitor count for December stands at 766 which is a MASSIVE decrease of 25,491 from the month of November.

The page impression count for December stands at 1,728, which is an enormous drop of 28,622 from the month of November.

This means that each unique visitor looked at 2.26 pages.

– The traffic from the big blogs linking to my articles over the past couple of months has gone as you can painfully see, I’m grateful for it but I can’t rely on it happening again anytime soon.

– It looks like I will have to start turning up the amount of promoting again.

– I continued to sell more items on Ebay.

– I have removed UnderDog Media from the blog, I think after sending them over 100,000 impressions and not making a Cent it is time to move on.

– I am so pleased with myself that I managed to break the $1000 target, I’m not sure if I will be able to repeat it this month but I’ll give it a great try.
