Wow, I got nice comments for my October earning report and experienced good traffic too. Here is my October traffic report of Sysprobs.com which helped me to make 637 Dollars.
Before that, I wanted ask two questions?
1) Do you believe stats from Google Analytics?
2) What’s your blog’s average eCPM for October 2010?
I’m not asking the eCPM of any particular program, it’s a total average eCPM for your blog. As a bloggers we can set our earnings goal by this average eCPM.
How to calculate?
Its very simple. The formula is,
(Total Income / Total Page View) * 1000
OK here is my report.
Page View – 216,538 ( Previous month was 169,015). Increased by 47,500 in 31 days. To be honest, I have not done anything specifically to increase this much, except posting articles.
Search Engine Traffic – 67%
Google Search Engine is at top.
Bing and yahoo at 7th and 9th positions.
Social networks sites are not in first 10 positions, I’m not great fan of them.
My earnings are not that great for traffic, but I can console my self by search engine traffic. For 67% organic traffic, my adsense earning is enough.
If you are a serious blogger, I advice you to set some targets for every month, it can be for earnings,traffic, twitter followers, facebook fan page and trying new monetizing ways. Try to archive them, I set to archive 200,000 PVs on October and I did that with face.
I will update some techniques I used to increase the traffic in 31 days.
So, my total average eCPM is – (637/216538)*1000= 2.94 ( which is less for a technology blog, I feel)
Anyhow, share your eCPM.
Have a good blogging.
