With Trevor taking off for Las Vegas for a couple of weeks and me going camping for a while, this turned out to be quite an interesting month. Some of our income sources went up, and others went down. So lets just jump right to it!
I’ve been doing a bit of research and I started building a couple of authority sites for Amazons affiliate market. After a few days the sites are starting to see a little bit of traffic and even a couple of sales. These sites are not built like the normal niche sites that we’ve been doing in the past. Everything from keyword research to backlinking is being handled differently in this project. We’re targeting tons of keywords and continuing to build these sites up. We’re adding a couple of pages per day and in the end they will probably have hundreds of pages if all goes well. Given that we didn’t start these sites until the end of August, they haven’t made all the much yet…so how much is not much? By the end of the month the grand total was $18.70.
Total Amazon Income: $18.70 (+195.88% from last months $6.32)
Last month we decided not to put up any sites for sale. However, we’ll probably put up a few this month 🙂
Total Site Sales: $0.00 (-100% from last months $3855.00)
Since we decided not to sell any of our sites, our adsense income has continued to grow. The 30 sites from our 30 sites in 30 days project is starting to kick in and the previous sites are holding up strong. So as of right now the strategy that we’ve been using to build sites is still working. We haven’t grown that much though and even though we set out to hit $240 per day 2 months ago, we still have yet to hit that mark. So I guess that’s a dissapointment if you want to look at it that way. We’ll probably be kicking up our efforts really soon here though. We currently have 70 more sites being worked on and we’re looking to do some new backlink testing to find other backlinking strategies that will work as well. We do have the manpower to build many more sites per month, but we want to organize and optimize a few more things before we start doing that. So how did we do this month?
Total Adsense Income: $4702.67 (+2.3% from last months $4597.04)
In August our other affiliate income saw a little boost. A lot of people are starting to put it into practice and already we’re getting success stories from our readers. This is very encouraging for us and seeing others already start to do well really motivates us to keep on going with the blog. There are a lot of people that support us, but once in a while we get “haters” who try to put our methods down. We try not to let them get to us because we know that what we’re doing has been working for us… and seeing it work for others as well adds fuel to our fire.

The Best Spinner: $80.00
SEMRush : $27.98
Total Affiliate Income: $1410.90 (+62.79% from last months $866.67)
Overall, we saw a bit of a decrease from last months earnings because we decided not to sell any sites. On the other hand, much of our earning sources did go up so we’re actually really happy with how the month went. For this month of September we plan on selling a few sites and really pushing ourselves so that we can have our first 5 figure month.
TOTAL EARNINGS IN AUGUST: $6132.27 (-34.24% from last months $9325.03)
