Hi folks, I’m starting the monthly income and traffic report here on Bloggers Passion. In today’s post, I will be sharing how I’m going about traffic wise, how much I’m making from my blogs, what kind of activities I’m doing on Bloggers Passion and how much I’m spending to run my blogs successfully.

Traffic Report July 2012

In July month, I received 18810 visits, followed by page views of 32416, bounce rate was 74.15% and page views per visit is 1.72. I’m sharing July 2012 traffic overview and comparing it with June 2012 traffic. I’m aiming at improving my blog bounce rate to less than 70% and page views per visit to 2 plus in the coming months. I have already started working in this direction.

Traffic Report July 2012 for Bloggers Passion

I noticed a 20% improvement in overall traffic on BP when compared with June 2012 overall traffic. Overall Page views improved by 25% and I noticed the similar kind of improvement in other metrics like bounce rate, unique visits and average time spent.

Traffic Sources

70% of traffic is coming from search engines, 14% traffic coming from referral websites and rest landing directly on my blog. Top referring websites for July month are StumbleUpon, Facebook, Digg, Twitter and Bloggingpro.com.

Content publishing and Guest Post Update

During July month, I published 32 blog posts on Bloggers Passion of which 15 are contributed by me and rest coming from guest bloggers. In this month I did 3 guest posts in total. They were published on WeBlogBetter, ZacJohnson.com WPKube.com.

Here is the list of most popular blog posts for July 2012 which used to be the driving lots of traffic on my blog over the period of time:

Income Report for July 2012

Here is the breakdown of earning report for my blogs for the month of July. Some of links shared in this section are my affiliate link and I used to make earnings if someone buys a product or service using my affiliate link.

  • Hostgator: $675 (Link)
  • BlueHost: $370 (Link)
  • ClickBank Affiliate Sale: $42.48
  • Woo Themes: $30 (Link)
  • Easy WP SEO: $74 (Link)
  • Banner Advertisement and Paid Review: $220
  • Google Adsense: $58
  • Text Link Ads: $52

July Expenses: $250
It includes getting content for my niche blogs and social media promotion services.

Net Profit in July 2012: $1271.48

So you can see majority of earnings coming from affiliate product selling and I’m less relying on traditional methods of making money like Google Adsense, Banner advertisements and paid reviews etc. I’m getting some text link and paid review requests. But I’m saying no to maximum of requests as they are coming from websites that are no way related to my own blog niche. I’m doing all these activities to be safer with Google latest updates.

Other Activities and Stats Worth Sharing

Apart from guest blogging, I started doing blog commenting on other blogs in blogging niche. I also started guest posting services and WordPress Installation services in the recent time on Bloggers Passion.

Alexa rankings for Bloggers Passion is 21000 (Approx) and its home page PR is 3. So far 549 posts are published in total and 3180 quality comments published so far. Fans count for my Facebook page is 2269. I recently added a new cover for my Fan page. In the coming days, I’m thinking of starting special promotion to attract fans to my Facebook page.

On the development part, I moved from WP Super Cache plugin to W3 Total Cache plugin. W3 Total Cache looks to be much better than WP Super Cache. You can read my WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache comparison post from here. Soon I will be getting a new logo for Bloggers Passion.

Hello Anil,

I think this is the first comment from me on your blog though I’ve visited your blog so many times, you share plenty of useful MEAT in your articles.

Let me ask you one question, do you do any extra marketing stuff to increase your webhosting affiliate sales (as I can clearly see the lion share of your income is from them).

BTW income reports inspires everyone, it also helps you to recap your income streams when you want to diversify :)

Anil Agarwal

Rahul, right now I’m not doing anything extra to increase my affiliate sales. It’s all coming from my efforts that I’m putting on Bloggers Passion.

I checked and still digging your site. It is full of knowledge i must say. Great work done by you. Keep it up. I just want to ask how did you created the HostGator ad in the sidebar. I mean which plugin you used or any any other thing?

Thanks

Hi Amit,
Glad to see a blogger doing so well. It inspires other newbies like me.
I was earning well enough from my freelancing writing assignments (more so when you convert the $$ into Rs.- to the tune of $1500-1800 per month). Passion to see my own name with my work, however, has brought me into blogging.
Been only 3 months.
Almost when I had started to feel that blogging is useless, this article has lifted my spirits once again.
Taking it up with renewed vigor.
THANKS A TON!!

My traffic is almost same and even more that yours but i can’t make any money. My only income is adsense(max $40) can you guide me how to make money from affiliate marketing

Reply

Anil Agarwal

Amar, you need to analyse your traffic sources. Once you have clear cut idea about the kind of traffic you are getting on your blog, you should try selling the products accordingly.

Tuan @ TechWalls

That’s very impressive.
It’s amazing that you can earn more than $50 from Adsense with just an ad block on sidebar. Is it only from this blog?

Reply

Anil Agarwal

Half of Google Adsense earnings are coming from this blog and rest from a nice blog in health industry.

You said you spent some 250 dollars on getting content for niche websites. Can you guide me on that. How much of these earnings are from bloggerspassion alone. I was curious regarding your blog and did a search. I was amazed to find that you tried to sell it on flippa during january this year. Were it low times mate? From that point your earnings have increased by 10 times. Congrats..

Reply

Anil Agarwal

Mostly earnings are coming from BP. I have 2 niche blogs which are in early stage and I’m unable to spend much time for their promotion.

Reply

George

Alright but why did you try to sell the site earlier? Your site is an excellent example of earning by attracting targeted traffic. Though its unrelated i have one doubt. How to take the screenshot of a particular portion of the window. I don’t want the full window by using print screen only a small portion. Can you help me?

Reply

Anil Agarwal

By placing my website for sale on Flippa, I want to judge how much is its worth. I may place it for sale again around Christmas. As far as the screenshot is concerned, I used to take them through Fireshot Screen Capture Plugin For Firefox. It has variety of options. I really love it.

Reply

George

Fireshot screen capture plugin. Is there anything for google chrome also. I happen to be irrestibly attracted to chrome.

Anil Agarwal

You can get this software for all browsers from here http://screenshot-program.com/fireshot/

Mate thanks for replying within 5 minutes of posting the query. I tried it on chrome but it doesn’t work on 64 bit chrome. However it works as butter on mozilla. I am loving it. The first post which I am going to do with the help of this tool is related to you. I will send the links once I am done!

Surely I’m waiting for your link. I’m happy I’m able to help you someway.
