I starting blogging less than 90 days ago. Originally, I started Zombie Robot Frosting, which just recently spawned into Blog Blog Cherry (this blog) and then also the Bearded Bunny Art Blog.
Note: All of my statistics have been varying a lot since this only month three of my blogging experience. This should give new bloggers an idea of what to expect if starting a new blog within 90 days.
Early on, Google Adsense was showing me very little results on my blogs, I decided to go searching for another product like adsense and found Adbrite. I have reviewed Adbrite head to head with adsense in my adbrite Vs adsense blog. You can see adbrite on this blog on the sidebar and at the bottom of the page. Adbrite was started on November 16th.
Monthly Income: $0.78
Yearly Total: $1.17
I was contacted by Adroll staff, asking if I wanted to try out their new advertising product. The products works in sync with adsense or adbrite type website advertising. It sells ads in the same spaces, for more than the competitor. Potentially, it could generate better paying ads on my blogs. I started November 28th, and in the first 35 days have had zero clicks. I am becomming skeptical if this product will work for me. My lack of success may be due to my low page impression count, I can invite other bloggers, so if you want to try out this product, please comment and I will send you an invite.
See my Widgetbucks performance review. This is my first 30 days using WB. Singing up with WB offers $25 free dollars, which is a nice incentive to try it out. The product is very new, and just started paying out the first earnings. Hopefully their are no hitches in the system as it seems to be a decent product for bloggers. I am a big fan of the green products that appear on my page since I do support green products awarness. 14 clicks in November.
Income: (ZoRoFro: $1.35/ BBC: $1.45) $2.80 cents
Yearly Income: $6.67
current ongoing blog profit centers:
After a very turtle-like start, my adsense was finally showing some promise. This month I seem to have dipped back into the mediocre level. I seem to get very inconsistent results day-by-day. Running adsense on my Bearded Bunny Art Blog and Zombie Robot Frosting has netted me just over 2 dollar, and nearly 8 dollars for the year. Keep in mind, November I made a record 5 dollars with Google Adsense.
Income: $2.16 cents
Yearly Income: $7.77
On my Zombie Robot Frosting blog I have news videos to embeded on my page. In month one, this was my favorite and best source of income for the blog. I did realize that I had the video set to auto play for viewers, generating me income but annoying all viewers. December was even less fruitful than the unimpressive November totals, as I also had problem with the player loading cropped. So currently, I do not even have the player on my blog.
Income: $0.09 cents
Yearly Income: $3.78 cents
Vume (pronounced 'view me') is a photobucket style site, that allows upload and storage of pictures, audio or video. The cool thing about this site, is that it pays you $3 per 1000 views. I was using this site to host my blog pictures and since the start of my blogging. Sadly, it has gone through some rough periods here, good things it seems to back to functioning and I made a measly profit in December, yet slightly higher than last month. It rounds out the year almost making 3 and a half dollars.
Income: $0.23 cents
Yearly Income: $3.43 cents
Total funds (December): $6.01
Yearly Blogging Funds (2007): $22.82
Note: I want to stress the fact that this is month #3 in my short blogging experience, and the yearly total is not a full year. Yet, I did want to calculate the numbers so at the end of 2008 I have something to gauge my success against. The $6 December total shows some disappointments in all areas, although my post number and page impressions did go slightly down in a stressful month of moving and holidays. I still want to run a post about my page impression strategies soon, Blog Rush, Blog Catalog and more.
I am always trying new products and testing new strategies. If you know a profit center that works, or a new product that is worth trying out, leave me a comment and I will check it out.
