I must admit, October 2013 income report was much more exciting that I originally though it would be. It even surprised me how much I did and forgot all about it.
Well, I don’t think that will happen in this income report of the penultimate month of the year 2013. I literally didn’t do any work at all except payed for some services. That’s why November’s income table is predominantly red:
|Long Tail Platinum||-$20.74||-$20.74|
As you can see, mostly red and the expenses are made out if 3 services:
- HostNine is my hosting provider,
- Long Tail Platinum is a subscription for additional features for Spencer Haws’ keyword research tool, and
- Source AutoPilot is the link building service I use for my only remaining website, the NW1.
Just like last month, Niche Cove made another cent from AdSense, thanks to the one user who clicked an ad. If you could do it again sometime, I’d much appreciate it.
Maybe the most interesting row of this whole table, and the reason I’m still writing this and your still reading, is the on containing an amount in green numbers marked Amazon.com. Well, that’s the only website that survived all the Google storms, the NW1.
The site made 4 sales in November, but unfortunately one of them got returned, so the site earned $5.80. Funny enough that was the site’s best month up to that point.
I don’t know what to attribute the sales to. As you can see, there was not a lot of traffic. The site was visited 328 times, which is 29 less than October when the visit count got up to 357.
Despite earning a few dollar, a thing that brought a bigger smile to my face is show in the image bellow.
Yes, it’s both the CTR (click-through-rate) and of course the conversion. At 3.20% it is just as good as that of Spencer’s NSP1. Just scroll down to a chart labeled Conversion Rate.
What this told me was that the sales weren’t random, but just a result of the visits I was able to attract. So, assuming that the conversion stayed the same and if I was able to get more traffic, a lot more traffic, NW1 would be able to earn a decent amount of money. Those where big ifs, but it was another indicator that my site has potential.
So, to continue the tradition, here’s the totals table.
I’m not-so-slowly approaching that $2.000 loss. It will be interesting to see if I actually get to it.
Over to You
OK, so maybe this month wasn’t as boring as I remembered it. Granted not much happened, but apparently even 5 dollars and 80 cents can hold quite some valuable information.
This whole thing got me excited even if it is February and I know exactly what happens, I can’t wait to write the next chapter – the December 2013 income report. Make sure not to miss it.
