Google Search Console stats

  • Google Search Console total impressions: 679k (1.06 million)
  • Google Search Console total clicks: 13.1k (20.9k)

December BLOG INCOME REPORT:

Advertising

  • Mediavine: $1475.97 ($1197.02)
  • Pageview RPM: $34.57 ($26.24)

Affiliates

  • Amazon OVERALL: $91.37 ($162.19)
  • Betterhelp: $225 and 8 conversions ($450 and 11 conversions)
  • ShareASale: 0 (0)
  • Awin:  $4.81 ($15.52)
  • Social Self: $0 ($196.50)
  • Clickbank: $0
  • Skimlinks: $0 ($30.47)

Affiliates Overall: $321.18 ($854.68)

I believe something wonky happened when I installed Skimlinks on my WordPress site and it started to replace my Amazon links. Therefore resulting in a much lower Amazon number than I would have expected for December! Live and learn – and a word of advice – don’t install the Skimlinks code on your website, it will overwrite your Amazon links.

Thoughts about this month’s income report:

So my income was pretty much flat from the previous December, but my traffic was trending downward so I actually made some gains in product sales.

Did I Meet my Goals for December

My goal was to choose a new product to launch as a baby seed launch and to write out the emails. I did not get this accomplished because I could not decide on a product.

Goals for January:

  • Change the social skills tripwire to $12
  • Work on my site speed
  • Change my link color (WordPress was alerting me it was hard to read)
  • Fix broken links, update category pages, update bio page, update resource library
  • Post a first Youtube video on “How to Speak Louder”
  • Write three blog posts
  • Get caught up on Passive Wealthy blog posts
  • Prepare my tax information
  • Promote the VIP bundle
