July 2007 Earnings and Stats

I really like sharing with our readers what I am making with this blog. Last month the grand total ended up being only about 95$. This doesn’t reflect any earnings from other blogs, just this one.

Our traffic was better than June. I use two different services to record stats so the numbers vary. Awstats reports 7506 unique visitors while statcounter reports 8,412.

Some of our most popular posts of the month include

I’m also glad to see that our RSS Feed Subscribers increased by nearly 100 in the month of July!

feedburner stats

Now on to the earnings

Adsense 3.38$
Text Link Ads 15.70$
TLA Referrals 50.00$
ReviewMe 0$
PayPerPost 13.65$
Sponsored Reviews 32.50$
Auction Ads 0$
RSS Feed Ads 0$
Private Ads 100$

That brings the total to 215.23$. I left a few things blank seeing as I had earned from them last month, and earned nothing this month. I think it’s time for auction ads to be removed. I would really love to replace it with a sidebar banner of some sort.

You can buy advertising on this blog by using Text Link Ads to be “featured”. There is also monthly space available on the sidebar of this blog for 10$ and RSS feed space for 6$ per month. Longer deals can be arranged.

    I am adopting a different approach to monetizing my site. When I have a shed load of regular traffic, then I will start. I guess the trick whichever way you go is to balance moneymaking with presentation and content. To my mind you are doing a good job not offending the readers’ eye with money grabbing elements, but still earning. I am watching closely!

    Great progress on the earnings! Like you, I’ve pulled the plug in AuctionAds and have been thinking of doing the same with Kontera.

    It’s all a balancing act to find which sources will provide the best opportunity.
