Top 5 Referrers for December 2007 (and November)

Ok, so I managed to do this list for September and October and then missed on November.  Not sure how that worked, but it did.  So.  Here’s the list of the top 5 referrers for December of 2007.

A big thank you to all of my referrers.  Without you, it would just be a nice big search engine orgy around here!

Ok, so to make up for the missing November list, here’s the list of the top 5 referrers for November of 2007

A big thank you to those folks (mostly the same folks) as well.

Income for November 2007

I’d like to say that I made an increase over October’s numbers, but I can’t.  The loss of the $100 in private reviews dropped me in below the October total.  I did however see a pretty good increase over September.

  • TLA: $76.24
  • Adsense: $89.59
  • PayPerPost: $17.00
  • Linkworth: $49.00
  • Amazon: $19.02
  • CJ: $5.76
  • Auction Ads: $7.11
  • Review Me: $21.00
  • Kontera: $47.41
  • ClixGalore: $3.75

Grand Total: $335.88.  That’s a decrease of 8.3% or $30.39 from October.  As you’ll likely notice, the TLA income has decreased again this month.  I think part of that is the Google fallout and the other part is the saturation of the market and the availability of cheaper sources.  The big surprise this month was the huge increase in Adsense.  An over $50 increase.  I’ve made a few changes, including putting some blocks in post on a few of my more popular search posts.  December is already looking like a good month for Adsense.  Another big jumper was Kontera.  A $30 increase there.  I continue to be surprised and delighted with my returns on that program.

December is already looking like a good month.  Adsense looks on track to keep up with November or possibly surpass it.  I can’t help but expect Kontera to increase again. At some point it will have to level out, but it shows no signs of that just yet.  I also added a third site to the Kontera network late in November, so that could help out if it performs as well as the other two sites have.

PayPerPost continues to disappoint so I think I’ll be dropping that program.  It’s just way too much work for way too little reward.  I made over $80 with it my first month, $25 my second month and have yet to get over $20 since then.  It really requires almost hourly checking to catch the better posts and that’s just a little too much for me when the payouts are that low.

November, December and January are traditionally the best months for the online realm so I expect December to be a pretty good month for me.  I’m trying out a few other things that hopefully will pay off.  Some arbitrage and some further development of some other assets.

Good luck to everybody for the holiday season!
