My Online Income Report - August 2014

<p>This is already my eight <a title="Online Income Report" href="; target="_blank">Online Income report</a> this year - covering my online income for month of August 2014.</p><p>In brief - August so far has been the absolute best in terms of online income. In total I <strong>earned $95.03</strong> what is a <strong>343% growth</strong> if compared to last month ($21.41) In absolute numbers I earned <strong>$73.62 more</strong> than in previous month. $95.03 makes average <strong>$3.06 per day</strong>, what is up from $0.69 last month.</p><p>For me such a leap is a great achievement, and I'm very proud of myself.</p><p><strong>In fact - last month I earned more, than in <strong>previous&nbsp;</strong>seven month combined.</strong></p><p>Now, there is a one pattern I have noticed - Affiliate pays of more better than contextual ADS like Google Adsense.</p><p>In August I have done Google Adsense and three affiliate marketing promotions - <em>, and Amazon</em>.</p><p>I have found following:</p><ul><li>Google Adsense makes pennies - but I'm fine with that</li><li>Hotel industry is just way too competitive - in hour days it's hard for a small blogger to compete with major brands</li><li>Amazon is my best finding last month, in fact most of the earnings I earned - have been made from Amazon.</li></ul><p>My August earnings were around a <a title="Minimum wage Ukraine" href="; target="_blank">minimum wage in Ukraine</a> ($104). By making more than 3 bucks a day, I'm officially above poverty line (2 dollars)</p><p>Now lets break things down:</p><table border="0"><tbody><tr><td>&nbsp;</td><td><strong>Earnings $</strong></td><td><strong>&nbsp;% of Total</strong></td></tr><tr><td>Google Adsense</td><td>6.87</td><td><strong>7.23%</strong></td></tr><tr><td></td><td>6.56</td><td><strong>6.91%</strong></td></tr><tr><td>Amazon</td><td>81.47</td><td><strong>85.84%</strong></td></tr><tr><td>&nbsp;</td><td>94.9</td><td><strong>99.98%</strong></td></tr></tbody></table><p>As I said at start of this post, and as you can see from table above - my biggest surprise and finding is Amazon. It generated me more than 85% of revenue. That's awesome!</p><h2>Now I would like to ad a new measurement &nbsp;- RPM</h2><p>Those of you who are using Google Adsense, are already familiar with term of RPM - which stands for earnings for 1000 pageviews/impression - Reach per Mile.</p><p>I decided to create my blog's overall RPM covering not only Adsense, but all other income streams combined, to measure RPM I must reveal how many pageviews I got this month.</p><p>For tracking &nbsp;website visitors statistics I'm using Google Analyitics, and according to it I got 5,002 Unique Pageviews (not counting in all Pageviews)</p><p><strong>My combined RPM Stands for $18.99</strong></p><p><img src="; alt="August RPM" title="August RPM" width="620" height="160"></p><p>That much I earned for each 1000 unique pageviews in average in month of August.</p><p><strong>I really like this number!</strong></p><p>Last month when I tried to predict my earnings for month of August I hardly could imagine this will turn out so great, this is what I said:</p><blockquote><p><span>I will stick with my modest forecasts - honestly speaking anything above single digits will be great, but to keep me in shape I will forecast $15-20 for this month.</span></p></blockquote><p><span>I have not only got those results, but&nbsp;quadrupled&nbsp;them - awesome!</span></p><p><span>Now, that leads me back for September predictions - again and again - I'm not willing to get self-fooled and I will not predict anything giant. My&nbsp;overall&nbsp;prediction for September is modest - anything above&nbsp;$45 will be a great result.</span></p><p><span>Speaking of longer term goals - one of them is to get over $200 in this year. For 2015&nbsp;I'm&nbsp;already&nbsp;fantasying&nbsp;of goals like $500 and $1000. Hope this September will give a good results and my "dreams" won't be&nbsp;wiped&nbsp;away.</span></p>
