This is the time of the month when I share the income, traffic and monthly report from my blog network. If you are wondering why I do this, here is a post which you should definitely read.
October was an interesting month for ShoutMeLoud regarding revenue and traffic. Let’s start with last month traffic report:
Last month Traffic report: 38% increase in page-views
Last month I shared a post on how I increased ShoutMeLoud traffic by 28% in few weeks and so far traffic is increasing gradually. ShoutMeLoud is now giving half a million impression/month and 85% of traffic is organic.
I have seen a noticeable difference after moving irrelevant posts from ShoutMeLoud to other relevant blogs.
