The real success of a Blogger remains in his consistency. I haven’t been consistent in posting blog posts, but in posting transparency reports every month, I maintained my consistency.
This report has a lot of mixed emotions.
Good Bye QuestionUs!
Sep 16, 2017: I made a tough decision. I never expected such a day will come, shutting down one of my subdomains.
The forum did not have any user participation. I went on creating threads. Promoted vigorously on LinkedIn and Twitter, I could get some signups, but couldn’t convert them into forum participants.
That’s not the end, I believe.
One day, when everything comes at the right time, QuestionUs might be back. Until then, you can discuss with me on facebook.
Science Savvy for learners:
With the end of QuestionUs, I am not giving up. I have come with the launch of two new subdomains. One is Science Savvy (Launched on Sep 18, 2017)
This subdomain is completely about science and knowledge.
Earlier, I had these posts on OnlineRockersHub, but many readers felt that they couldn’t follow up multiple niches on a single website.
That’s why I moved all these Science related posts to Science Savvy.
Quotes Drive for Inspiration:
Quotes Drive is the other subdomain, I launched this month ( Sep 22, 2017).
I am very fond of inspiring quotes. They do change bad moods. That’s why I like it very much.
You could have earlier noticed some quotes on OnlineRockersHub. I am posting the same on Quotes Drive now. Soon, new quotes will be posted.
Let’s move on to the traffic reports.
The traffic curve at the end of the month shows that OnlineRockersHub is getting a steady traffic. I just thought what change brought this curve. Then, I realized that I blogged regularly for the last one week.
That brought this some curve.
This month recorded 300 pageviews lesser than previous, but I feel they are equalized by my subdomains, as I moved posts.
Last month, there was only 697 organic sessions. This month, it rose to 885. This is a good sign that Google liked my SEO changes ( moving other niche posts to subdomains).
Now, OnlineRockersHub has posts completely focused on Blogging and WordPress.
So, you can expect more posts on these niches in the upcoming months.
ORH Coupons and Deals:
This month, I did not actively post coupons and promote it just like the previous months. So, traffic went down from 544 page views to 224 pageviews.
If you visited ORH Coupons & Deals regularly, you could have noticed a lot of coupons and deals. I removed many of them because I felt that those deals were not worth enough.
I am still thinking if I should change my theme for this subdomain. I will take a decision on this as time goes on.
I will have to wait till the next month, to check its performance.
I am posting Quotes consistently on this subdomain. So, I am expecting more traffic.
That’s all about traffic. Now, we will move to income and expense reports.
Income and Expense Reports:
- Sponsored Posts: $10
- ShoutMeLoud eBook sales: $4.74
- Google Adsense: $1.60
- Cuelinks: $0.69 ( ₹45.31)
- Clixsense Referral Program: $0.158
- FamilyClix Referral Program: $0.096
- Buxvertise Referral Program: $0.0061
Total Income: $17.29 ( Approx ₹1128.78)
I don’t have sufficient funds to spend on anything.
Unexpected Affiliate Sales Rejection:
Apart from these earnings, I noticed that one of my Hostgator affiliate sale commission (recorded 2 months ago) was rejected. It was a commission of around $50. This just disappointed me.
This report had a lot of mixed emotions. But, all I feel is that these are lessons to be learned.
For the next month, all I plan is to be consistent with blogging and to see the results.
