I was pretty sure that January wouldn’t be as nice as December, but I still thought it would be a pretty decent month. Turns out, it was my lowest income month since last September. There are a few things that played into that, but I’ll talk about that later. Here’s the numbers.
- TLA: $27.65
- Adsense: $148.60
- Linkworth: $49.00
- Amazon: $21.49
- CJ: $1.95
- Kontera $38.53
- Shareasale: $37.52
- Scratchback: $5.53
- ClixGalore: $5.00
Grand Total: $335.27
Still, not a horrible month. Just barely missed beating out November. The big changes are, of course, that I’ve dropped TLA from this site. So my income from them drops from $61 in December to $27 in January. I still haven’t seen anything that says that Google will give me my pagerank back, but that really wasn’t the reason for doing that. It will be merely a nice bonus if they do. Adsense went down from December (which I expected) but is still up from November. I’ve made a few changes that will hopefully result in continued good returns from that.
Kontera seems to be plateauing a little. I’m not going to complain. It was way up in December, then is down about $10 from November. Still, $40-50 a month is still a pretty good revenue stream in the grand scheme of things here.
I’ve been playing a little bit with some PPC, but without having any great luck. A little bit here and a little bit there. Overall, down. I’ll have to keep tweaking and see if I can’t make it work a little better for me.
I’m also planning on building up a few of my other niche sites a little bit more than they are. Hopefully, that will allow for some better returns in the next few months.
