Magnet4Marketing Blog Traffic & Income Report for October 2011

Well it’s that time of the month again where we bring you yet another detailed breakdown of the traffic and income stats generated from our online businesses and of course this blog.

Why do we share this information with you?

We’re sharing our blog traffic and income report for October 2011 for several reasons:

A)    We simply want to be transparent in everything we do online so that you can see how we make money online from blogging, so that you can take away our strategies and integrate them into your own to make money online methods.

B)    We share with you our blog traffic and income report to help motivate and inspire you to succeed with your own blogging business venture.

Ok let’s start with some of the milestones we achieved this month –

  • Average Visitors per Day: 502
  • Bloggers.com Followers Reached: 1,000
  • Twitter Followers Reached: 8,000

Traffic Report

Ok let’s take a look at the detailed traffic report for October 2011. We once again pleased with the traffic increase of the blog over the last 31 days, we’re averaging 500+ visitors per day and the bounce rate has decreased whilst time on site has increased slightly. We’re still aiming to bring the bounce rate under the 75% mark in the coming months. Generally we’re pleased with 13,567 unique visitors, it’s good progress for us.

October Traffic

October Traffic 1

Ok so here’s what we did do to help increase traffic to the blog –

  • Posts Published: 46 (Inc posts from guest authors)
  • Guest Posts on Other Blogs: 4
  • Comments Posted on Other Blogs: 19
  • Forum Posts: 6
  • Posts on Other Blogging Sites: 2 (Bloggers.com & HubPages.com)

This month we’ve set ourselves a target of 17,000 visits and 25,000 page views. Our goal to increase referral traffic has somewhat been dented dropping from last month’s 8.85% to this month 7.08%, so we’ll be working towards increasing this throughout November.

magnet4marketing.net on this domain reached 1-year old last month, and so in its first year has generated 84,311 visits and 131,193 page views. I hope that one day that figure will become a monthly occurrence.

Income Report

Ok let’s look at this month’s income report and what a month it’s been… I’ve tried my best to put a bit more effort into affiliate marketing and making money from the blog, as last month we didn’t quite reach our target of $600.00. However this month we smashed through that target to almost double that target figure…

Here is a full break down of our income for the month of October 2011 –

Contextual Advertising / Ad Sales

Google AdSense – $72.08

Infolinks$22.15

Paid Links – $9.63

Private Ad Sales – $25.00

Affiliate Marketing

ShareASale$27.98 (Genesis Theme Framework)

ClickBank$17.54 (Video Traffic Academy)

Templatic-Themes$29.70

DreamHost$148.00 (Autumn Promotion)

HostGator$37.50 (25% Promo Coupon)

Theme-Junkie$8.99

PremiumPress-Themes$47.40 (Halloween Promo)

Web Services / Web Design / Graphic Design

Web Design$684.19

Total Income: $1,130.16

Total Expenses: $30.90 (Hosting, Akismet, Facebook Ads)

Residual Income: $1,099.26

Google AdSense earnings is still a low despite an increase from last month’s $51.70, however this month’s income report is a very pleasing one at that, and to be frank it’s going to take some serious effort to match this in November. So my target income for November I’ve set to be a realistic $750.00.

Right folks until next month I hope you all have a productive and thriving November. Keep your head down, work hard, stay focused and you’ll soon be on the road to success and making money online, happy blogging :)

Oh don’t forget to add the following dates for your diary –

  • Black Friday – 25th November
  • Cyber Monday – 28th November

    • Thanks very much for your kind words Samuel, I am pleased that I inspire you, it means so much. I never imagined that after just one year from starting a blog I would be making over $1,000 from it. I will continue to provide great content and share everything that I learn along the way with other newbies so that they too can make money from blogging. Keep working hard Samuel but most of all be consistent at all times, it will pay off. Thanks again.

    Well done Fabrizio, great report ;)

  3. What I admire about blogosphere is ‘transparency’, how much is earned and one’s status is out in the open for all to see. Its being exemplary and saying that if ‘they can we can as well’. Glad to know what you achieved, Fabrizio, may you achieve new heights.

    • Thanks BCH, it means a lot. I think ‘transparency’ and just being honest works best for me personally because at the end of the day we’re all in it to try and win it :) I want to see many more bloggers reach new heights just as much as I want to as well personally. I also must say that appreciate you visiting the blog frequently and leaving great comments, it’s well noted so thanks a bunch :)

  4. Hi Fabrizio,
    Congratulations!! To more than triple your expected income is terrific. You are doing a terrific job. And, your success is not a surprise. Your contributions are amazing. I enjoy your site very much.

    • Hi Ann, nice to see you here again, I appreciate your regular visits to the blog and taking the time to comment so thanks. Thanks also for the congrats on my traffic and income report, October was a fantastic month and November seems to be following just the same. It’s been a busy last few months with several new projects underway for an anticipated new year’s launch. Will keep you posted soon. I hope to share many more milestones and achievements in the future with complete transparency so that others can use in their own tactics :)

      • Fabrizio,
        Thanks for recognizing me. I do find your site very interesting! And, you are definitely an inspiration to many of us out here trying to make it. I always learn something when I visit you. Keep up the good work and word!!

    • Thanks PrIyAnGsHu, yes I put a lot of effort into affiliate marketing and thanks for your kind words but I’m far from an expert yet. I like to think that I can get creative with my affiliate marketing tactics rather than use conventional over done methods. Clickbank is a great place to start, I know many people don’t like to use Clickbank and there are other networks like Commission Junction and so on, but I’ve not had much luck with CJ… yet. Clickbank can work well for you if you promote products that you trust and if your audience trusts you they will purchase via your recommendations, which is why you should only promote products that you have reviewed and trust that others might find beneficial, best of luck.

  7. Congratulations Fabrizio, its great income from smart job.
