I can tell you something right now. This month for Ask Will Online has been amazing. With traffic still increasing and an Adsense payment sent to me, things could not have gone any better! As well as that, news from my other website, Review Cosmos, the traffic has picked up again out of nowhere to a record 800 views/day! WOO! (can you tell I'm excited for this?)
If you haven't seen January's stats, you might want to check them out too. I created the whole article then I lost it all! From this, I've only uploaded pictures of my stats which are still very valid to compare with for February's stats.
Let me also mention that Ask Will Online again achieved 1,000 views a day again this month. Even though it was only for a day and through Blogger's stats, I think it's enough to get a mention in my monthly review of Ask Will Online. Anyway, here we go!
Ask Will Online's Stats (From Google Analytics) February 1st - March 1st
Visits - 12,173
With this being an increase of about 1,000 visits, I'm very happy with how things have turned out. My aim for Ask Will Online is to always grow and ever since it started out this time last year, it has done so. Let's have a look where the traffic is going to:
- My conversion rate has stayed consistent at around 0.50% which is great news consider I have had an increase of traffic in February. What more, my CPC (cost per click) has increased from £0.40 ($0.63) to £0.50 ($0.79) meaning higher earnings! I feel I that after numerous days of experimenting in January 2012 and 2011, I have discovered the Adsense advert sizes, location, colour and type that produce me the highest CTR.
- I have started to get to the point on Ask Will Online where the money that could possibly be generated by Adsense on my BuySellAds spots are more than the cost of the ad zones fixed price. Therefore, I have no choice but to increase the fixed prices of these ad spots and hope advertisers still buy them. If not, I can put Adsense on them and gain roughly the same amount of earnings from them.
