Welcome to monthly transparency report of ShoutMeLoud. Every month I publish revenue & traffic report of ShoutMeLoud. Along with these, I share what’s new happening around us, and what I’m planning. This report works as a reality check for me and is helpful for our regular readers to find out new ways to earn money.
This month I got delayed in publishing ShoutMeLoud monthly report, as I was waiting for the new ShoutMeLoud design to go live first. Our new design is almost done, and will be live in the coming months. We are changing our color from Blue to Red. I will explain the ideology behind changing color in the official announcement post when we go live. For now, let’s look at what’s happening new at ShoutMeLoud.
Here is the first mockup of our upcoming design. (You need to wait for few days to see the complete design).
This month we went live with the final design of our iOS app, and so far I see a huge number of downloads, and users around the globe are sending us their feedback, and congratulating for the iOS app.
May 2015 Traffic report for SML:
Last month Linode data centre had a meltdown, and due to this ShoutMeLoud was down for five hours. It’s sad when the site goes down when you are sleeping. Have you ever had a similar issue?
Overall the traffic for the month of May was like any other month, as there is only a fraction of difference from earlier month report.
About 80% of out traffic is organic (From search engines), and about 12% of traffic is social. Now let’s have a look at Android app traffic report:
Android app traffic report:
From next month, I will be sharing traffic report for iOS app. For now, let’s look at how our Android app is performing. One thing that I have realized is: Push notifications are the lifeline of mobile apps. From last 4 weeks, I have disabled push notifications, and you can clearly see the impact on the app traffic.
We are getting returning visits, but without push notifications users are unable to read the latest article within time. The good news is, I have fixed the push notification issue, and from now on you will get new post notifications for both iOS & Android app.

-My blog is new and there are 4-5 articles i have posted on my blog, i am getting organic traffic but its too low, how much content and traffic i need before i apply to adsense?
I have alot of stupid questions like above, i will be thankful if you answer my questions.
You blog is truly informative.
I downloads ur Sml app. Its ways to slow while downloading articles. U need to work on making it faster.
Thanks for feedback @Monirul & we will keep working on improving the app with time. Now speed & performance is my top priority.
Wow I can see great addition of your new affiliate marketing eBook. Your transparency report is indeed an inspiration for many of us, helps to motivate bloggers to work hard and earn more.
I had started to work on certain affiliate programs such as ClickBank, Amazon, Web Hosting and Payoneer and generated $783 in just three months. Working more closely with affiliate marketing of products and services.
$783 in initial 3 month is a great work, and I bet your revenue will keep increasing every month. Best of luck for coming days 🙂
Thank you very much Harsh, Best Wishes For You From My End. 🙂
Awesome Story, Thanks for the transparent report.
waiting for Red SML .
I got your book of affiliate marketing
i am sure it will help me increase the sales of affiliate marketing
Now that’s what I would call an inspirational post!!
By the way…talking about the logo…honestly speaking..your present logo looks better than this one. 🙂
Hello Bros, Your monthly transparency report is very inspirational for newbie and gurus alike. You are really a role model. Keep up the good work you are doing. I am learning a lot from you. Thanks for sharing.
Hi bro Harsh,
Honestly i like current shoutMELoud interface!
I see most of your income from affiliate marketing, but adsense earning is too low if we compare with monthly blog traffic. Will you please explain it why? As, we know adsense converts well with huge traffic.
I have a plan to write a post about “A favorite Successful blogger Harsh Agrawal” on my blog soon!
I will be great full if you send me mail about your “blogging life” and your views regarding this plan. Will you!
Waiting for your mail….
You are true inspiration harsh for new bloggers. I’m very impressed by your blog efforts
Harsh Really you are my inspiration of blogging world from your blog I learned and implemented so many things on my blogs and soon launching 2 more blogs. About income, I am earning from Adsense not much but happy whatever I am getting from google and focusing to increase brand. Thanks fro giving us employment in the form of blogging.. Hope you will write big article on Branding.
Great income Harsh. Good luck.
Even I feel your current theme looks better, but when the new theme goes live we can experience the real benefits. Always ‘changes’ take time to adopt.
By the way, I tried to purchase your book from Oman, it got rejected for some reasons and my Credit Card did not work. By any chance, I can purchase it by Paypal?. Let me know please.
Seems like your this month income has dipped little bit. I believe you are spending much on your future projects and plans.
Recently read about your SML/PRO plan and really excited to see such unique idea in Indian blog history. But I think you have also booked a domain for shoutuniversity. Are they 2 same? Just a query.
Good luck Bro 🙂
Harsh , thanks for the transparency report as its aptly called. Its a monthly booster for bloggers like me .
Congrats, I love Shoutmeloud, I see Adsense is among the top earners for this blog, any tips for increasing adsense earnings?
Eagerly waiting for this post. Always want to know what you are doing and using. Is Genesis themes non coders friendly? or you need to hire developers for that? New design is awesome. Your font selection is also good.
Really this is awesome income report. It proves that you have worked hard for achieving this stage of earning. 7.6 Lakhs per month is the very big money for the Indian. You are the Great, Harsh ! Very Good Job.
