I have already created a post report about the first month of Sparesome.com
I have started this blog on 1st of October in 2013. I write this report about the traffic data from October 1 to December 31.
Income & Expenses report
I think most of you is very curious about my income. I made less than 10 USD within 3 months time.
My recurring expenses are about 30 USD per month. A maximum of 20 USD is spent on photos every month.
3 months (rounded numbers)
- Posts published: 55
- Unique visitors: 1000
- Visits: 1700
- US traffic: 65%
- Pages / Visits: 2,5
- Bounce Rate: 60%
- Highest Google Plus received: 30 since November 21 on How To Write Epic Content? Should I … Really?
My highest daily visit was on List of Top 10 Christmas Songs with Youtube Links. I had more than 70 unique visitors on 13th of December.
My traffic had started to increase after I posted the Christmas songs post but after 5 days it dropped. I think it can be connected to the Google Sandbox Effect.
Link building and SEO
I haven’t paid a penny for search engine optimization or for link building. I concentrate on onsite SEO and internal linking besides writing quality content.
Some article marketing had been made. Furthermore I use several social media channels: Google+, Facebook, tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter.
My favorite social network is Google+. I use it the most.
Plans for 2014
Let’s say I’m at 5% completion rate. The first stage I want to achieve 500 daily visits.
Blogging will be even easier when I hit that stage. Then the next is the 1000 daily visits.
Something has started already in the beginning of January, 2014. I’m still a little bit unsure about the performance increase but I will definitely write about it in my next traffic report.
One thing is sure: patience is very important especially in the beginning.
