ShoutMeLoud August 2013 Income and Traffic Report

August was an awesome month for ShoutMeLoud regarding changes and few achievements.

I moved ShoutMeLoud from private VPS to WPEngine hosting, and already shared my experience of migration. Also, we won the best Indian blog award under the blogging category.

Regarding revenue, it’s not same as last month income report, and as I mentioned earlier, in Affiliate marketing, revenue will always fluctuate, and I constantly need to explore the new area of opportunities.

Moving to managed WordPress hosting is a big move, and moreover it increased my overall monthly expense by $200, which is worth looking at the quality of hosting, and features I’m getting with WPEngine. This month I will be sharing income, traffic and best posts of last month.

Income report for August 2013:

In my last month income report, many people asked me, what are the other affiliate programs that I’m using, and I have shared list of affiliate programs that I’m using.

If you are starting with affiliate marketing, that list will help you to find some new and successful affiliate program for your blog. And, here is a complete breakdown of my monthly income report:


         Total Income: $6320.61

Compare to last month this was a dip of $1000, and it’s normal into affiliate marketing. This month, I’m aiming to cross the next goal of $7500 and make it more consistent.

Do remember, my monthly blogging expenses are around $600, and personal expenses are around $2000. So if I combine all, my total saving for the month of August 2013 was $3720,61.

Traffic report August 2013:

After moving to WPEngine, I made a mistake of adding back dates to posts, and it sank my traffic for a couple of days. If you are wondering, what I’m talking about; you should read my case study on effect of showing dates.

Now, let’s look at how was the traffic report for the month of August 2013:

august 2013 traffic report
  • Save

  • Monthly Visits: 135,718
  • Monthly PV’s and bounce rate: 225,437 & 74.75%

Most of ShoutMeLoud traffic is organic (Google, Yahoo, Bing), followed by direct traffic, Facebook and referral traffic. One thing which I have learned over the time is; it’s not the quantity of traffic matters, it’s the quality of traffic which matters. More quality traffic you will get, you can make more money from your blog.

    I’ve been on ShareASale and must say that it is the slowest of all. GoDaddy has been must better and flipkart too.

      I agree with your statement on ShareASale is bit slow…but overall I love the features over there.. UI of dashboard may not be very friendly for first-time users, but if you get accustomed with it, it will be easier from there.

    Finally i started to earn money with my website. $229 is too low at the moment when compared with you.

    hope i will do better and achieve better income.
