Magnet4Marketing Blog Traffic & Income Report: June 2011

Each month we bring you a detailed breakdown of this blog’s traffic and income report and we do this for several reasons.

The first reason is to give you, our readers and new bloggers an indication of the kind of progress that can be made with blogging, and the other reason is to inspire you even more to keep working hard at your blog and driving as much traffic as you can to it, so that you can of course make the kind of revenue you want from your blogging venture.

Traffic Report

Having suffered from Google’s Panda effects over the last 7 or 8 weeks or so, where our traffic saw a small decline in numbers, this month we really did push our online marketing efforts as well as refine the way we search engine optimized posts and pages on the blog. We’ve also made an effort to concentrate more on putting out niche focused content.

Traffic

Let’s take a look at the screenshot below from Google Analytics comparing May’s traffic report to June’s.

June Traffic Report

Visits 8,845 (17.32% Increase from last month)

Page views 13,885 (19.46% Increase from last month)

Page/Visits 1.57 (1.82% Increase from last month)

Bounce 73.89% (3.10% decrease from last month)

Average Time on Site 1:36 (4.49% decrease from last month)

New Visits 85.66% (1.26% Increase from last month)

June TR1

As you can see with our ongoing efforts to reduce the bounce rate we’ve seen yet another decrease to 73.89%. If you remember back in April’s report we soared to almost 80%, so this is good progress for us. Our all time goal is to bring the bounce rate down to around 65%.

June TR2

Next month we aim to reach our traffic target of 10,000 visits and 15,000 page views.

Income Report

Here is our report of income entirely generated from this blog throughout the month of June.

Contextual Advertising

Google Adsense $29.46

Paid Links $11.22

Affiliate Marketing

ClickBank $203.22

DreamHost $52.00

Total $295.90

There has been no increase this month on last month’s earnings but I’m still happy with the level of income nevertheless.

The target I’ve set the blog for next month is $400 so with some extra elbow grease applied we should accomplish this competently, but we’ll have to wait and see.

If you’re starting out with monetizing your blog ensure you have good traffic first as this is essential to your success. I started monetizing this blog when it hit around 10k in monthly page views a few months back, keep working hard and setting yourself realistic targets, good luck.

  1. Great income.You have earned lot wit clickbank.Thanks for sharing your income with us.

  2. What you think needs to be done to reach $400 per month?

    • Fabrizio Van Marciano says:

      Hi Deniel thanks for your dropping by, this month there are a couple of promotions with hosting that I’m going to share as well as some premium WordPress theme reviews. There is also a great internet marketing course which I’m in the middle of trialing out so will perform a review on this course shortly. Traffic is also a big issue with increasing income, so we’ll be working towards building more traffic this month too.

  5. Nice report…

  6. Is $400 per month really enough for the amount of work you have to put in?

    • Fabrizio Van Marciano says:

      Hi John, well since the blog is only 8 months old on this particular domain then I think that $400 per month is a good start, I didn’t expect to be making anything in the first year either. I also believe that that figure will rise as the blog grows with better content and greater traffic.

  7. thanks for posting these reports Fabio, these are really encouraging, keep up the good work

    • Fabrizio Van Marciano says:
