Income Report for January 2023
Welcome to my January 2023 blog income report!
Note: The numbers in parentheses are from the same month of the previous year. I’m retrieving these numbers from Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Semrush, Convertkit, and my social media platforms.
- Pageviews: 69,392 (44,198)
- Sessions: 60,743 (36,935)
- Users: 55,612 (32,194)
- Organic Sessions (Google): 26,794 (9,903)
- Social Sessions: 20,533 (14,818)
Mailing List Subscribers: 7017 (5972)
Since I’m doing this report retrospectively, I don’t have the numbers from that past for these.
Posts published: 6 (3)
Google Search Console stats
- Google Search Console total impressions: 1.24 million (361k)
- Google Search Console total clicks: 25.2k (8.8k)
- Average Click through rate: 2% (2.4%)
- Average Position: 15.8 (24)
Based on what I see here, I need to focus on the clickthrough rate. Everything else is doing swimmingly!
Again, as I am doing this retrospectively, I was not able to pull this information. However, I’ll resume publishing in later reports.
January BLOG INCOME REPORT:
- Mediavine: $1120.35 ($813.98)
- Pageview RPM: $18.44 ($21.91)
I’ve hit my original goal of $1000 a month from ads, so now my new goal is $1500 a month! I think I will easily achieve this by writing more content.
Amazon OVERALL: $162.54 ($148.43)
Note: I’m reporting everything in US Dollars.
- Amazon US: $119.25 ($118.50)
- Amazon CANADA: $6.19 ($0.79)
- Amazon UK: $37.10 ($29.14)
So I’ve hit my goal of $5 per day in Amazon revenue! My new goal is to earn $250/month from Amazon.
Betterhelp: 0 ($225)
I’m not sure how to make this affiliate more consistent, but perhaps it’s not possible and I need to start looking at it over the entire year and average that out per month. I’d like to see an average of $250/month from this affiliate.

Thoughts about this month’s income report:
My net income is still growing, but I can see now that where I am lagging behind is on products and fine tuning the affiliates that I have (focusing more on the ones that actually are making money). I need to improve my funnels and maybe create new products (not sure).
Goals for January:
All I was doing this month was writing posts.
Goals for February:
I had no goals for February other than writing posts.
