Traffic and Income Report: June 2018

Traffic and Income Report: June 2018


August 14, 2018

Many of you visit regularly, click on ads, buy things on Amazon, contribute via Paypal, etc. Here’s how that turns up on my end. I haven’t done one of these in over a year, so I just thought I would throw it together for comparison’s sake.

The following data comes from June of 2018:

Page views: 255,335
This figure is up by 13,000 page views from the same time period in 2017.

Google AdSense revenue: $588.00
This figure is up by approximately $150 from June of 2017.

Amazon Affiliates revenue: $0.00
I actually earned a wee bit from Amazon during the month of June, but not enough to get paid. Amazon waits until you hit a certain threshold before doling out payments, so I’ll have to wait. It has actually been over three months since I’ve been paid by Amazon. The reason is that someone made a very large purchase but then returned the product, so the commission I made from that sale was subsequently taken out of my “paycheck” over the last couple months.

Sovrn revenue: $92.00
Sovrn is down for me by about $10 this month despite an uptick in traffic from last year.

Paypal donations: $183.29
A few people chipped in some donations during the month of June, so thanks very much to all you people who did (and have in the past)!

TOTAL INCOME: $863.29

    I bought and returned a colored pool light, but have also bought dog food, some electronics, and school clothes for the kid

    Be curious to know how many Uniques you have in a month.

        That’s an impressive number for a blog operating in such a narrow niche. You’ve obviously offer something of value to your readers. I’ll just say it right here to all of them: show Thunder some $$$ love!

    Is there a way you can put a permanent link to Amazon on your site so I can get to it easily?

      Yep – if you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, there’s an Amazon ad linking to several Michigan books. You can use that link to go do your shopping.
