I am not writing this income report to brag or showcase my achievements, the main purpose is to educate you about the huge potential of making money online.
In this article, i will be sharing with you my income proofs, statistics of my websites, mistakes that i made and my future plans.
So let's get started.
Here is the graph of my monthly income:
Here is my Google analytics snapshot for the month of november.
I dont know why there was a sudden drop in traffic on November 15, but one thing was for sure, my heart was racing at 5 times its speed when i saw that drop in traffic.
Majority traffic was organic in nature. So ~90% of the traffic came from Google.
Traffic was almost similar to what we received last month.
Note: I wont be disclosing the niche of the site, URL or affiliate network names . This is because in early 2017 i disclosed one of my profitable affiliate site to my Facebook group and within next three months atleast 20 replicas of my site were created and twice my website was hacked. I lost a lot of money just because i decided to disclose the website name.
I maintain an excel sheet to track my income for each of the affiliate network used on the site, i am sharing a screenshot of the same (i add the approx. figure for each network):
In total i made approximately Rs 14,81,245 in November (Not exact figure as there might be few refunds, chargebacks for a couple of affiliate networks and also the currency conversion rate from dollar to INR changes a lot)
The revenue in November although was just a couple of thousand less than that of October, but the share of few of the affiliate network changed a lot.
There was a massive drop of 1.5 Lacs in my biggest affiliate network.
Although this big drop was compensated by a new revenue channel in my site because one more article got ranked as #1 on google which contributed $774.01 amount in november that too in just 10 days.
The revenue projection from this new revenue stream of my site is expected to be around $1500-2000 if the traffic remains same.
This makes me extremely happy as now i will be making more passive income on autopilot. This is the power of organic traffic , when your article starts ranking you keep on making passive income on autopilot till the time you are ranking on #1 position of Google. This is why i fell in love with SEO.
Revenue from selling my own products increased in November.
This was because i hired few affiliates and was giving them 30% commission from the sales.
My target is to increase my Gumroad sales to at-least $5000 by March 2019.
I am planning to launch a few more products as well.
Made around $1700 from this network, i mostly run PPS programs from them:
And for my biggest affiliate earner, here are the stats:
I know there has been a significant drop in clicks after the mid of the month even when the traffic remains the same.
I am still trying to figure out the reason for this drop in clicks of affiliate links.
In the month of November we added approximately 150 in depth articles to the site.
Almost all the work is completed on the site.
Now, only the SEO part is left.
We did not make much revenue from the site because we have not built even a single backlink.
Flipkart affiliate also contributed around Rs 2,000 in this site, but i dont focus much on Flipkart rather only on amazon affiliate.
Primary expenses for November were:
I will try my best to complete the following before 31st December 2018.
