Shocking October Stats Not So Shocking

As time flies by so quickly that it’s almost imperceivable to the average person, one comes upon that special time of the month where those of us post our stats for the month that’s left us in it’s wake.

That month just happens to be October and I really expected to have a pretty dismal earning report to post. This is because October turned out to be so busy in my personal/business life that I didn’t do all that much blogging, or even commenting.

And yet, once I checked all the stats, although it was less than the previous month, I was very pleasantly surprised.

  • Adsense: $24.87
  • Voxsant: $0.14
  • Kontera: $0.07
  • Clix Galore: $0.25
  • Chitika: $0.90
  • Infolinks: $2.46
  • Advertisers: $10
  • Commission Junction: $100
  • E-Junkie: $39.00
  • Jumbo Affiliates: $8.10
  • RegNow: $0.00
  • Paid Posts: $0.00
  • Commission Monster: $7.43
  • Amazon Associates: $0.00
  • CashBurners: $0.00

TOTAL: $193.22

Just shy of $200 by a few bucks, but considering that my Adsense earnings was up I was pretty rapped with the month’s takings. I’ve decided to give Kontera the flick as it really isn’t performing all that well, and give it’s spot to Infolinks.

The biggest earner, once again was Commission Junction, and I reckon it has a lot to do with my ‘Pop Quiz’ that I have below my header, so even though I’ve had a couple of people tell me that I should change it, I reckon I’ll leave it be awhile longer.

  1. That must be a good feeling knowing that your blog has your back, for lack of a better phrase. Even if you have an iffy month, your work has paid off and you’ve got some momentum going. Kudos to you for that accomplishment, Sire. Here’s hoping that you can find that time to work hard and have a November to Remember!

    1. Thanks Trey and your are right, it is a good feeling knowing that the blogs can sustain themselves on their own. I must admit though, I hate not being able to write as often as I’d like.

  2. Congrats on a very good month. Greg Ellison
    .-= Greg Ellison´s last blog ..Blog Income Report for October 2009 =-.

  3. That’s impressive Bro. Keep working at it and you’ll have more and more income on the side. Very inspiring for the rest of us!

    1. Thanks Alan and Greg.

  4. Now that’s real life stats there. I am sick and tired of seeing squeeze/sales pages telling of systems that can earn $3000 (to $40000) a month in adsense and affiliate earnings for one blog. Well, that is not an impossibility but it’s gotta take a lot of traffic to earn that much.

    I wish to someday be able to post articles such as this in my blog. For now, it’s earning negligible cents. Besides, I am still trying to learn methods of monetizing it. I only knew of adsense and Clickbank. Thus, it was a surprise to see your list of income sources here. Thanks.
    .-= James Moralde´s last blog ..First Step Up Google’s PR Ladder =-.

    1. James I could have easily inflated these figures to show what a great blogger I am, but that would be dishonest and I don’t operate that way.

      I’ve seen many a blog who I feel have over inflated their earnings in the hope that people subscribe, but as far as I’m concerned, they are only fooling themselves.

  5. Well shucks! I tried most of these things at one time or another, but I always give up too quickly. One hundred smackers? Leave the sucker up there! Who cares how ugly it is? Ugly is underrated in my book. lol
    .-= Heather Kephart´s last blog ..Post-Halloween NaNoWriMo Crankfest =-.

    1. It’s ugly? Gosh, now my feelings are hurt. Nah, I’m only kidding :tongue_wink_ee: As long as it does it’s job I reckon it can stay.

      That goes for the other stuff to. They don’t always earn their place but when they do I reckon it all ads up. Thanks for dropping by Heather.

  6. Congrats! I have been on ad sense for a year and am up to $15.98….lol

    1. I remember those days Jose, just remember all good things come to those who wait. Or something like that.

  7. Well done on the stats, still looks great for not doing much. Wonder how it would look like if you worked full time :)

    If the quiz is making money, then leave it for now. Build up some cash and then you can place it somewhere else over here, maybe the sidebar or footer.
    .-= George Serradinho´s last blog ..New Elegant WordPress theme called Glow =-.

    1. That’s my problem George, because I already work full time I can’t put the time in that the blogs deserve. That’s cool though, I can only do what time allows so I don’t stress over it.

  8. Hey, It all adds up. I need to add some revenue sources other than Adsense. When I get some time I am going to go through your stats posts and pick out some other sources.

    I see you have several things that generate under $1. What is there min payout threshold? It could take forever to get a $100 payment if you are only earning $.25 a month.
    .-= Ned Carey@Baltimore Investing´s last blog ..Help! My Home is going to tax sale. =-.

    1. Thanks Ned. As you know I’ve decided to give Kontera the flick. In regards to Voxant, I would use them even if it didn’t produce any income at all as it always provides news worthy stuff that I can use in a post.

      I just did a search and there is a whole lot on Real Estate. I recommend you check Voxant out.

  9. Twitter:
    Once again, Sire, you’ve beaten me. Nice job with the Commission Junction thing; that’s one I keep working on. That Voxant thing certainly doesn’t put a lot of money in our coffers, but we at least made something, as little as it is, this month.
    .-= Mitch´s last blog ..October Income Report – It Is What It Is =-.

    1. Heck Mitch, it’s not like I am trying to beat you, like I do in Chess, it’s just turning out that way. Anyway you’ve always done better than me in Adsense and I’ve always been a little envious of that fact.

      Regarding Voxant, like I said to Ned, I would keep them even if it wasn’t making a cent.

      As to CJ, so far I’ve been lucky so far and can only hope it holds out a lot longer.

      I reckon that my best investment to date has been FlexSqueeze and it’s easy promoting it when people see that I actually use the product as well as being so enamored with it.

      1. Twitter:
        That’s true; about the Flex Squeeze thing and the promotions. And I know you’re not concentrating on me when making money; I’m actually trying to catch you, though. :drunk_tb:
        .-= Mitch´s last blog ..More Promoting And Marketing =-.

        1. I don’t know, I’ve been trying to match your adsense earnings and am falling way short of the mark.

            1. Yeah, well my sex site was a great domain name but Google usually displays community ads or none at all because it can’t find anything to match the content.

    1. Thanks CB, but it’s probably only because I’ve been at it longer than you. In time I may be chasing you efforts.

    1. Yeah, that one, and it’s not just sex toys either :laugh_tb:

  10. I might have to try something different. I use Project Wonderful and have made a whopping $1.30 with it! I figure if I eventually get the content the traffic will follow and then [maybe] someone will click on something and earn me some $$$. Hey, and I clicked on that monstrosity at the top of your page my first visit.

    Okay, now the real reason for my comment – I read “I’ve decided to give Kontera the flick” and saw your fingers actually flicking it off the page and had a chuckle. What can I say? I’m easily amused! :clap_tb:
    .-= Anne´s last blog ..My Christmas: Andrea Bocelli =-.

    1. I used to use Project Wonderful on most of my blogs, but they gave all but one “The Flick” :laugh_tb: Don’t know why, and not at all fussed about it. Wasn’t even making enough to buy a peanut.

      And how could I possible get rid of that monstrosity when it compels people to click on it?

  11. 100 big smackers for Commission Junction! Hey, that’s decent and $25 for Adsense is OK too! Must admit that I have not looked seriously into CJ, but will certainly do that now.

    Keep up the good work …

    .-= Valentina´s last blog ..Pump Up Your Blog Income with Affiliate Marketing =-.

    1. Valentina, CJ doesn’t always perform for me, but when it does, it does a damn fine job. Thanks for the comment, and I hope you liked your stay here.

    1. Yeah, maybe I should go away more often. Perhaps more people drop in knowing I’m not around spying on them. :wink_ee:

  12. Sire what is your goal for November now that you came close to that $200 mark? I’m guessing $250?
    .-= Extreme John@Extreme John Blogs and Business´s last blog ..Halloween Costume Contest Pictures and Voting =-.

    1. I’m not one for having goals or making business plans and stuff. I just take each day as it comes.

    1. Thanks Klaus, the best thing was it wasn’t all that hard. Man, I love being a blogger.

  13. Wow almost $200 and you can still call it a bad month. So tell me how does Commission Junction works?
    .-= ZXT´s last blog ..Google PageRank and Alexa Ranking Facts =-.

    1. CJ is simply a site that allows people to choose from hundreds of advertisers that they may wish to promote on their sites.

  14. How ae the pop quiz and CJ connected?
    .-= Dennis Edell´s last blog ..Only 4 Ad Spots Left – Meet The First Advertiser! And The Pot Just Got Sweeter. ;) =-.

    1. Simple Dennis, the links are from CJ affiliates.

      1. OK so I asked it wrong. (I know you looked 3 times at my question saying DUH!) thanks for being kind in the end. lol

        How do you get paid, per click or does one have to sign up to blue host through the link?
        .-= Dennis Edell´s last blog ..Mistakes To Avoid While Designing Your Landing Page – Guest Post =-.

        1. Oh :doh_tb: That depends on the affiliate you wish to promote. As to the ones in the header, I only get paid per sale. So yes, someone would have to sign up to BlueHost.

  15. Nice almost $200. More than what I did. Keep it up Sire.
    .-= Deneil Merritt´s last blog ..Breakups And Movies =-.

    1. Thanks Deneil. I’m sure you will do better next month.

      1. You welcome. Yeah, I hope so.

  16. Wow, you surely have lots of advertisers there.

    I only have adsense, infolinks and chitika.
    .-= ark´s last blog ..Today’s Google Doodle: Anniversary of Sesame Street =-.

    1. I believe in not putting all my eggs in one basket. When a particular affiliate does not perform, perhaps another will take up the slack.

  17. I hear you on the whole thing about wanting to have more time to write and work at it. My dad passed out on Friday in the middle of the street so I basically hauled my boys over there and spent 3 days with him. Sometimes life just really gets in the way of us being able to stay on a schedule.
    I’m glad that even though you weren’t able to be as active as you usually are, you were still able to get some passive income. Good job on that.
    All the best,
    .-= Eren Mckay´s last blog ..How to cure and heal severe anxiety =-.

  18. Sorry about your dad Eren. I hope he’s OK now?

    My dad actually passed out a couple of times a couple of weeks ago. It really freaked my mom out. It didn’t take long to work out it was related to his new blood pressure medication. We took him off that and he’s been a lot better.

  19. I see that you do really well with “Commission Junction.” I never had much success with them.

    1. Sales on CJ is rather erratic Rose, but well worth it when the right sales come in. Although earnings are less with some of the other affiliates I promote, they do occur on a more regular basis.

      All in all I don’t like having all my eggs in the one basket and so I use a variety of earning avenues.
