Compared to the previous month of November which was 'the most successful month' ever for me, December was a huge disappointment. This was all down to it being the holiday season. At Christmas, people are just not online. Even so, as much as it pains me to bring you the stats of December. Here they are.
Ask Will Online's Stats (From Google Analytics) December 1st - January 1st
Visits - 7,605
This is a decrease of about 2,400 visits from last month, which is a big shock especially with my aim being to increase visits by 2,000 every month. You can definitely see the effect Christmas has had on Ask Will Online from the picture of my traffic below:
- I used Adsense for the first half of December (luckily, when the traffic was at its highest!) bringing in more than the whole of November's earnings! So I stopped and tried different monetizing methods...
- I focused on BuySellAds and managed to sell two ad spaces. However, it hasn't made me nearly as much money Adsense did.
- I therefore have resorted back to Adsense. The money is still coming but not as fast due to the low traffic.
