ShoutMeLoud July 2014 Stats and Income Report

Hey Shouter,

July was a busy month for me and I realised that it’s been long I have shared monthly income report and stats for ShoutMeLoud. Last time I went to a bloggers meet in New Delhi, many readers told me to continue with the monthly stats report as it’s a motivation factor for me. I completely agree with the same, as seeing income and traffic report for other blogs in my earlier stage of blogging motivated me a lot. In this monthly edition of ShoutMeLoud, I will share what all new things happening around ShoutMeLoud and my blogging career, and like always last month earning and traffic stats. If you are new here and wondering why I share this stats, you should definitely read this guide to learn about my ideology for sharing such vital stats.

What’s new in the month of July

From last few months I have worked on honing my skills and trying to be more organised. I started blogging out of my passion and from last  5 years I have blogged about things that matter. In last couple of years, a lot has changed around blogging and it’s becoming a main-stream media and I realised this is the right time to make changes in the way I blog, and learn the things that would help me to continue and grow as a blogger. My last 2 months were spent networking and meeting some of the pioneer of online marketing, and learning something new from them. If you are also an accidental blogger like me, I suggest you to focus more on stats and numbers to grow your blog. More over you need to be more organised and targeted to keep up with the growing pace of blogging. I will definitely share my learning in coming days, for now let me share few of the important updates around ShoutDreams in the month of July.

ShoutMeLoud Chrome app:

Over the years I have worked day and night to create unique content but didn’t market the way I should have. Now I’m focusing more on amplifying my content by not only promoting it to new channels, but also let readers to subscribe to blog updated via new medium. I have launched a Chrome extension for ShoutMeLoud, which will show you latest updates from ShoutMeLoud in chrome browser. This is in beta stage (Without any bug) and so far I got excellent reviews from users. I suggest you to download ShoutMeLoud chrome extension and let me know if you are looking for any new features.

Shoutuniversity: Professional blogging course

I have already informed you about launching my premium blogging course which will help anyone to learn blogging and earn from it. I spent a lot of time in July to brainstorm and connecting with those internet marketer who are already running a membership site. To start with, ShoutUniversity is shaping up in constant speed and you can expect it to be live anytime in the month of September 2014. Like I promised, I will be giving special discount to pre-launch sign-up users and you still have few days to book your seats. You can head over to and sign-up to be the notified at the time of launch.

Site re-design

One of my priority list for 2014 is to re-brand and update the design of all the blogs of ShoutDreams. I have already started with our WordPress hosting blog design and once this design is finalised and out of beta, you will see the similar layout on all of our blog. I’m sticking to Thesis WordPress theme and in the above image you can see the site loading time before changing the design. You can check out the new design on official site here and let me know your opinion and any suggestions if you have.  I’m already seeing a notable difference in Page views and Avg.time on site after redesign. I will share the complete experience and case-study once the responsive design and mobile design will be ready in coming days.

Android app for ShoutMeLoud

My next strategy is to focus on serving a mobile friendly site and now I’m using WP Touch pro plugin to serve a mobile friendly site. Moving ahead, I’m already working on Android app for ShoutMeLoud which is going to be release in the month of August. Special thanks to Aneesh who is a Shouter and is developing the Android app for ShoutMeLoud.

    very nice harsh you not only shred you earning but also shared some ways to earn money online .In you hidden words .When you share your earning side by side you also share a lot of other info thanks bro

  2. mayank says

    As usual, another rocking report Harsh. Still a long way to go.

    But what do you think? Is direct advertisement better or Google adsense in terms of ads, and should I use ads and affiliate products on the same page?

    Waiting for your answer.

  3. adetechblog says

    This is still a big buck despite the fact that you were busy through out the month. I observed your AdSense earning is not as buck as others, is AdSense not suits for this site? Just confused about that!
    Furthermore, on the premium course, can’t wait to start right away.

  4. Manasa says

    Harsh, my blog speed is some way between 2-3 second and I want to bring it down further. Please suggest me some tips in this direction. I am using thesis theme on my blog and q hatchling plan from HostGator.

  6. Ridhim says

    Hey Harsh,
    First of all Congrats on your July earnings. Harsh I want a bit if advice from you. Actually the thing is my cousin created a Adsense account using my id and my name 6 years back.

    Looking forward on hearing from you.

  7. Bhanu kumar says

    Impressive figures Harsh !! Its very inspiring for new bloggers who want to get into affiliate marketing. I also launched my first niche blog on web hosting and see forward to make some money out of it.

  8. kapil heera says

    Hello Harsh,

    Few days back me and my friend thought that you have stopped sharing income reports but today when I saw it again then I felt good, We do not have any direct relation but you inspire me a lot. I’m happy your income is growing.


  9. Sonu says

    Dear Harsh Bhaiya,
    I am an 18-yr-old school pass-out and a newbie blogger. You posts taught me (and is still teaching me) a lot. You are a true inspiration to me and I hope I might be able to reach the same heights that you are in today. Thank you so much :)

  10. says

    I was not aware about the premium blogging course, thanks for mentioning it here and yes I’m opting inside the pre-signup section. It’s good to know that you are hiring but currently I could not come to Delhi.

    Awesome income report.
    Keep posting them again and again.

  11. Jaikishan says

    Hi Harsh,

    I’m reading your blog from last month. I want to start my own blog and by following u I m getting the idea that how to get started. And about earnings $9158 is really good income.

    Well I have a WP blog which I just stated and I thought to write about everything. I know that’s not a correct way and I’m trying to find my special niche.

  12. says

    I read Shoutmeloud regularly but this post is great motivation for me.
    It will really help other bloggers too and those who are planning to start blogging.

  13. Dev says

    Nice Post Harsh,

    This type of post inspire bloggers who are new into blogging.
    This result shows your hard work you are doing.

  14. Sandeep Sorathia says

    Hi Harsh,
    I am new to blogging world and I get inspire by you a lot. Your articles are awesome, which makes me visit your blog every day to get updated. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us. Keep it up bro and have a great success.

  15. Bhavesh Sondagar says

    Great inspirational income, I am your follower man. I have taken inspiration from your older post about affiliate marketing and now I have started earning little amount from affiliate marketing.
    Thanks for your inspiration, always share such work on your blog, that motivates me always.

  16. rajeel kp says

    Hey dude,

    I thought you stopped these income reports. It’s really motivational and inspiring to see it again.
    You have grown too far :-)


  17. says

    Hi Harsh, It is heartening to see these numbers and inspires others to achieve the heights you have achieved. What is surprising for me is that Google adsense income is only around 3 % of the total income. No dependence on adsense – that I feel is the greatest achievement.

  18. says

    Hey Harsh,

    Firstly Congrats on your July earnings. I wanted to share the true success of your post idea on the topic : How I Built A Micro-Niche Site And Earning $174/Month

    I started a new blog on a topic – Savings Instrument “PPFAccount” in a similar concept. Today this blog gives me an average of $120 – $150 a month.
    Thanks Harsh, your each post when followed with true dedication yields higher benefits.

  19. Rajkumar says

    Congrats harsh, I am working hard, but Why I am not able to earn even 1% of your income..? But I haven’t loose my hope, I know a day this 1% will turn to 1000%

  20. Abhijit Bangal says

    You are doing a tremendous job, Harsh. Great indeed. And those who asked you to post your income were right. Actually I am following your blog when you for some reason had discontinued posting reports (if I am not wrong).
    I really appreciate how you manage all this. Good luck for your next assignments.
    P.S. And yes, is there any way to keep intimated about your new app?

  21. says

    Great work Harsh.

    That shows your major source of income is Affiliate Marketing. Currently I’m earning near $400 on my blog and just started in to Affiliate Sales. This really motivated me.

    Keep it up buddy. Have a nice day!

  22. Basit says

    Nice Harsh, you are doing very good job. Its very Impressive income you earned.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

  23. Rahul Nair says

    Truly enjoy reading your articles. Quite inspiring.

    I had a humble suggestion about the website redesign. The new look in the first fold looks clean because of the minimalist concept that you have incorporated, but the article layout as your scroll down makes it look a little cluttered. I was thinking something on the lines of a good picture, and a snippet of the article at the side, but this is just my opinion.

    I also had a question, you’ve shown how page load speeds have gone up with a change in Theme. Is that directly attributed to the theme itself or something else?

    • says

      Thanks for your suggestion and I’m also considering to make some changes so that articles are aligned in the right manner. Right now alignment is broken and that makes homepage and archive page look cluttered.

      Page load time has improved for many reasons:

      I’m using latest version of Thesis Theme which is well-coded and I removed almost 10+ plugins after setting up new theme. I will further work on social sharing buttons as they slow down loading time by a great extent.

  24. says

    H! Harsh ,
    Many many congrats to you, you are always inspiring for me and i always try to follow you.
    Undoubtedly you deserve for that earning.

    Best of luck for the future and many more earning.

    Thanks for sharing.

  25. George says

    Harsh is the earning from only Shoutmeloud or all the blogs in your network. I have some suggestions too.
    If you list a run-down of the affiliate products you are promoting along with the earnings in the respective months it would be great for we the readers the you because it’s another opportunity to market.
    Secondly, when compared to other marketers say Zac Johnson or even Jane Sheeba you aren’t using email marketing in a big way. There could be lots of things you can do by focusing on it.
    Thirdly, congratulations on the earnings. You are an inspiration

    • says

      This earning is from all the blogs and thanks for your suggestion on Email marketing. That is something I still need to focus on and have put it at my priority list after launching Shout University blogging course.

  26. vivek says

    Yes this is the reason why many people follow harsh sir, he never hide anything from new blogger. He provide inspiration for people like us who want to grow in this field.

  27. Aashi says

    This is inspiring me to put in more hard work for my new blog I know there is a lot of hard work and some good luck involved too.. but i’m sure it will be worth the effort. Looking forward to more tips from you to increase the traffic and earnings for newbies.

  28. says

  30. Rahul Dubey says

    Hey Harsh, how are you ?

    Congrats for July stats !

    $9158 – $3374 = $5784 that’s really great and you really deserve it.

    This shows how one’s passion can influence his success. Though money can never be considered as a success factor yet it matters. And more importantly, you keep succeeding in inspiring. So, one can say you are the real SHOUTER – WHO INSPIRE.

    By the way, just submitted my application for Google AdSense and your tutorials were very beneficial. Though its my first application yet I hope to get approval soon.

    However, keep earning, keep sharing and more importantly, keep inspiring.

    Thanks !

  31. Siraj Mahmood says

    Hard working hidden behind every success. Affiliate marketing is global hub,but i will prefer clickbank because my experience only with clickbank ebooks :)

  32. Trivedi Jaykumar says

    Congratulations Harsh,

    You deserve this earning because of your knowledge and smart tricking tricks.

    This month my earning is little bit low but i want to recover it in August 2014. Have a nice life. Sharing & caring.
