So it is mid February and my earnings goals for Jan and Feb were as follows:
- $50/mo end of Jan
- $55/mo end of Feb
I am happy to report that I exceeded what I wanted for January and on track to exceed Feb. The only site earning right now is my original money site, and I have increased the earnings on it by making the site faster (Implemented W3 Cache) publishing new articles (three new articles, so far), and by re-sizing the ads (I am now using 300×250 and 728×90). Just today, I included Amazon Affiliate links on some of the pages with related items so I am hoping that I can push earnings into the $70’s by month end.
Adsense as of today (Feb 16th): $35.29
For the content network, I haven’t done much since the last update. I am working on a new theme, this one will be a news oriented theme similar to this: http://demo.studiopress.com/news/. I will most likely use this theme to publish a new money site that I began preparing a year ago, but never published. I will also use it for a few of the content network sites as appropriate.
How am I doing towards my other goals?
- Create and launch at least 4 money sites by 2015
- Increase blog network to 50 sites
Not very good! For the first goal I need to launch 1 money site every quarter and I have yet to launch one for this quarter. I am only half way through but not sure if I can keep to the goal I wanted…
For the second goal I am doing very poorly. I need to launch about 4 sites a month to keep to it and so far I have launched 1 site in a month and a half! I have to push to meet it.
