...at least for the most part. Too bad I can't say the same for the results. Since it is getting close to the end of the month and I took some time away from publishing Hubs during my golf trip, I decided to look and see how the publishing efforts looked against my goal of one Hub during the week and two on the weekends. I took the calendar and counted out the number that I should have published and came up with a total of 14.
Then I compared it to reality and found that I have published 11 Hubs so far this month. I also have the rest of today to publish another as well as this weekend to do two more so I am officially on track. I haven't been as lucky with my linking efforts. I know for a fact that I didn't get 3 done each and every day. I would estimate that I got it done on about half the days, but I still have done more linking than any month previously. I plan on finishing out the month strong with 3 more Hubs and doing my links each day.
Unfortunately, it looks like I am only on pace to double the income of my lowest AdSense month in 2010. That is OK since I couldn't expect a flurry of activity to have immediate results. This is by far a record traffic month so that can only mean that better results are on the way. The biggest problem is that my CPC is down compared to other months. I guess that having more traffic with more clicks probably averages them out to a lower overall value. I just haven't quite made up for it in volume yet.
In the meantime, I hope everyone is having a solid start to the year. I will say that eHow income has been solid, much better than last January. I will also say that I am impressed with my Amazon clicks this month. Looking over the stats for 2010 showed that my clicks increased each and every quarter of the year. That is probably due to increasing traffic levels. At the current pace, they will increase again this quarter so that is good considering it is not a big shopping time of the year. I can't wait to see if I can get another payout sometime in the next few months.
I am just a neophyte learning to make money online. I am excited about the opportunities and hope to share what I am learning.
I am also interested in real assets such as gold and real estate. I have a blog on these topics as well. Be sure to stop by and check out both my blogs.
