Niche Site Monthly Income Report – March 2013

After missing in action for several months, I finally back and start to review all my comments, traffic and earnings.

So what happened to me? Kidnapped? Hospitalized? Amnesia? Exorcism?

No! No! No!

I’m just an ordinary part-time blogger who try to blog and earn some tiny little income. So, I was missing in action because I have to be super busy with my full-time income, the one that buys me my daily food.

So, let me start to report on my niche site, Cloud Storage Tips on the traffic first.

This time around, I got a better traffic than before. This is because my site is already few months old although I don’t do much thing to it, but it deserves some traffic though with some contents.

Here are the statistic I got for March 2013:

  • Unique Visitors: 637 visitors
  • Page Views: 808 page views

Out of those traffic, here is where they are from:

  • Organic: 547 visitors
  • Referral: 6 visitors
  • Direct: 110 visitors



Expenses had already greatly reduced. There are many things that I had already paid for at least a year and what I need to do now is to focus on my earnings.

However, within these 3 months, there are no tweaks or what so ever optimization been done. Everything I got today is what I had done 3 months ago and today is the result. They are not really impressive though but I gotta show the statistic anyway.

Here are the expenses that I had made:

And for the income, here it is:

  • Google Adsense: $2.19
  • Total: $2.19

Overall, the niche site is a losing business in March 2013 with: -$64.81.


Conclusion and Lessons Learned

When I first started the niche site, I am quite frustrated. One of the frustration was I didn’t get any rankings on Google despite trying so hard to build links and etc.

As a result, I stopped zombie on the statistic and after a month or two, I was at first page of Google for an average volume of search.

Cloud Storage Tips does not have a lot of keywords being targeted but at least it manages to rank for one keyword which I had targeted.

The lesson which I learned here in this niche site challenge is SEO do takes time, so be patient. There will be no over-night result and even if they do exists, you will be bounced off pretty quick.

I also nearly gave up on UAW but because I still find its effect, I am keeping the subscription and hope that this time around, I can maximize my investment.

It was still a bad month and I am looking for a recovery back to blogging in probably 3 months down the road?

Should anyone welcome me back to blogging business?
