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 in terms of revenue and traffic. One of the major change which happened this month is increased traffic, and in last month report I mentioned about using AdPushup to optimise my AdSense ads and it worked great. I will share the complete review of the service in coming days, and in this post I will tell you about the difference AdPushup made on my earnings. So, lets 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.

Adpushup experiment results were astonishing and I would recommend you to sign up for Adpushup right now. It’s in beta and is currently free, and it will help you to increase your revenue significantly. I will share the complete review and how AdPushup works in next post, but for now here is a screenshot from my AdSense iOS app, and you can notice the increment of 435%. Few days back they also got Angel investment of $632,00 and their future seems to be really bright. You can read more about AdPushup angel investment here and sign up for a free account here.
Last month I also launched a service call GraphicalTube which is in beta and it will let you create channel art for your Youtube channel. You can see an example by going to my Youtube channel over here.
