ShoutMeLoud Monthly Income Report August 2010

Like every month we are again sharing our monthly income report which is done in order to keep a track of our own progress and give an idea to budding blogger that how much money you can make from Blogging in a month.

My monthly income report consist of money which I make from all the blog under our Blog network and set of services which I offer.


Here is the breakdown of August income report:

  • Google Adsense:                              660$
  • Affiliate marketing:                         700$
  • Thesis Customization Service:              650$
  • BlogSpot to WordPress Service:           750$
  • Buysellads + Direct Advertisement:     900$
  • Infolinks:                                         20$
  • WordPress SEO :              200$
  • ———————————————————–
  • Total :                                            3880$

One thing which really impressed me this month is Adsense which is increased by almost $100+ and with CallingAllgeeks becoming better day by day, I can expect it to make the some money which Shoutmeloud is making from Adsense. Though before you ask why so less with AdSense, we use only one adsense unit and that’s one of the major reason for low earning with Adsense. Another reason which actually make sense is Shoutmeloud and CallingAllgeeks are Adsense revenue sharing blog, and user participation is high. That means in almost 30-40% of posts it’s guest author Adsense is running.

Meanwhile our expenses has also increased and right now my monthly blog expenses are close to 1000$. That includes employee salary and hosting cost.

I have also set up small office at home and here is the picture of my small Home office which is not yet ready but you can have a quick glance:


Right now I’m blogging with one Dell laptop and one Macbook Pro. Looking forward to buy one 32” LCD screen and few more gadgets which will cover my desk. Do send me your suggestion about the gadgets you would like to see on my desk.  You can also gift me one if you want. :)

We are working on new portals and new micro niche sites. Though all this take time and I will keep updating you like always about the latest development around Shoutmeloud Headquarter. :)

Do let us know how was your month of August in terms of revenue?

    Hi Harsh nice to see your earning increasing every month.
    You are setting example for other bloggers.
    Keep your hard work up!!

  3. detrou says

    Can you share what affliate programs you are making money from. Thesis being one of them, which are the other ones. I see impressive numbers month on month on same.

    Also, when you started off versus today, where do you acquire your clients from: blog itself or freelance sites.

    How you market yourself in the competitive world of toomany service providers.

  4. sju says

    Your Adsense Revenue is not in line with your Alexa Rank. Be more aggressive Man… and it is easily for you to hit $10,000 monthly.

  7. James M says

    Those are numbers that get me inspired. I’ve only been seriously writing for a few months, but I’m looking at launching another website to start making some money.

    Out of curiosity, how long would you say did it take you to go from making $0 to making $500, $1000, $2000+?

    I’ve been following your stuff for the past several weeks, and always enjoy what you write. Keep it up for all of us.

  8. Social Bookmarking Service says

    Instead of going for 32″ I would recommend you to go for two 22″ … this will enhance your productivity.

    You don’t share some traffic stats as well?.

  13. Jens P. Berget says

    Interesting stats, interesting office, and awesome that you’ve got a Macbook Pro (I have one myself). I’m still at apx. $500 a month, but I’m happy with it. I use the money to buy books at Barnes & Noble and I lend it to people who need it via Kiva.

    • says

      Macbook Pro is just amazing..I assume u might agree with my on that :)
      Well for my money which I earn is something that take care of my all day to day needs…

  14. Mani Viswanathan says

    Another awesome month. This time SML is doing better than the previous month. Hope to see your earnings touch $800 next month (Adsense). Keep working on CAG. It’s going very well & the post frequency is just awesome.

  19. Rahul says

    It is cute office. I am wishing to open small home office. I will probably doing in next two years.

  20. Basant | Techno-Pulse says

    Keep it up Harsh. Good luck for your other start-ups. You are an inspiration for many Indian bloggers like me.
    I’ve monetized with AdSense. Currently it’s $30/m. Any tips for improvement?
    Regarding gadget suggestions: You can go for a “thin-client”, incase you increase your employee strength, it’ll be a future proof investment.

  21. Anup @ Hack Tutors says

    Very nice report. Your desk cannot cover more gadgets now. Increase the desks! haha :D

  22. Vijay says

    Really proud to be like you and congrats for your monthly earnings and expenses.
    I don’t know what to suggest to fill your desk, hope the normal office desk will be with old employee photo, pencil stand, toys, USB, printers, Lamp stand and so on. I suggest to place any smart nature are child wallpaper backside in the wall. Back wall is looking smart empty. It should be placed with any one gadget or wallpaper. Not more than one :)

  23. shashank says

    awesome harsh ….
    Keep going aka marchin ahead :)
    hey any tips for me instore as a newbie blogger :?
    waiting for your positive reply:)

  24. Varun says

    Wow, Nice to see your earnings, it’s really motivated for us (noob), If you have some time just visit my blog and give me some suggestion too :)

  25. adnoh says

    excuseme but your adsense revenue it’s very low.
    Can u tell me how many unique visitor have you a day?

  26. Robert says

    Congrats on another great month for you! I’m right behind you! if you take off a zero……..

  27. indihow says

    Awesome Harsh! I’m still wondering why we haven’t yet got a glimpse of your Adsense cheque :P
    btw August was great for me from an income point of view, and I completed blog/website projects worth nearly $350, which is my best in a month till date. Still going slow on the Adsense front though. Digital freelancing seems to be a feasible in-college income source to me :)

    Best of luck with your domain+hosting business too!

    • says

      I knew some one will come up and ask for adsense Check and one reason why I dont have is : My adsense goes to some other place and it goes directly into my bank account..
      Anyways I will try to take a screen of this month check…
      Meanhwile u can see one of my aff. check

      • indihow says

        Cool! But Schoemaker didn’t have a car pic like you :P
        So you kinda jumped a step I guess :D

        • says

          Ha ha..But Shoemaker has lots of other things and I can’t even myself anyhow close in comparison with Shoemoney. He is a legend in online marketing.

  28. Sathish @ TechieMania says

  29. Rahul @ MazaKaro says

    Nice stats dude :)
    Congrats :)

    Please suggest me how I must increase my earnings. I earn hardly $200 per month :(

    • says

      Hey Rahul
      I had a look at your blog and here are few of my suggestions:
      Use Gocodes plugin for affiliate links
      Try to minimize your ads.. your blog kind of look spammy or made for ads… Focus more on content… may be you should consider increasing content size to 600px
      Work on your blog SEO…
