Making profit or loss with blogging doesn’t matter. All is about consistency – Nirmal Kumar
I feel these words important after going on with surprises and drops in the last few months. Without going on too much with the intro, I am going on with this month’s transparency report.
August 2017 Traffic Report:
This month, there is a massive hit on the traffic. Compared to the previous month, traffic decreased by 35%. I made few important SEO changes this month.
I removed indexing of low-quality pages (like images etc) from the sitemap, as my idea was to submit and index only high-quality pages.
This resulted in a decrease in traffic. But, I will compensate this in the upcoming months.
This is the first time ever, I noticed that my organic traffic was more than direct traffic. Because in previous income reports they used to be almost equal.
There is a big drop in traffic from all social media profiles too.
Just like OnlineRockersHub, the QuestionUs forum has also lost its traffic.
There were only 6 sources of traffic for QuestionUs. The forum needs a lot of user participation.
ORH Coupons and Deals:
The only satisfaction considering traffic this month is from ORH Coupons and Deals. The traffic is maintained almost the same this month also.
Organic Traffic and StumbleUpon traffic looks good. Apart from that Facebook traffic should also be noticed.
I want you to like our @ORHDeals Facebook page for instant updates on Coupons and Deals.

Where should I focus?
This month was completely miserable in terms of traffic and income. This month, just proved that my blogging lacks strategy. So, from now on, I must focus more and more on building the best strategy for blogging and maintaining the academic career, and stick to it.
It isn’t too tough and complicated to do. I must just focus on managing my time. If you have any suggestions and tips for me, let me know in the comments section.
