I mentioned not long ago that I wanted to start sharing traffic and income reports for the site. As readers and contributors, I think it’s fair to want some insight into the “inner workings” of the blog. Many of you visit regularly, click on ads, buy things on Amazon, contribute via Paypal, etc. Hopefully this can become a regular report.
The following data comes from February of 2017:
Page views: 229,640.
This was a down month for traffic, despite the expected uptick in traffic from National Signing Day. Why was it so low? Well, my previous hosting service couldn’t handle the traffic – despite promises that it could – so there was a lot of down time. There were a couple days, as well as intermittent other spots, where nobody could view the site at all, including me.
Google AdSense revenue: $281.40
Amazon Affiliates revenue: $53.95
Paypal donations: $1,109.40.
I don’t get Paypal donations during most months, but this was the month when I requested (and received) funding for a new server. (See above: Page views.) Over a span of twelve days, readers ponied up over $1,100 to help for the new server, which has been working well.
TOTAL INCOME: $1,444.75
