Blog Earnings Report – September 2011

Steven 6 responses About Dukeo

Dukeo is a blogging live case study. My first goal is to share everything I learned by working in Internet Marketing.

Another goal of this blog is to show that you can still start a blog from complete scratch in 2011 even when you are a nobody and make your way to becoming one of the big blogs in your industry.

A part of this experiment is monetization. Is it still possible to make money from a blog? Is it possible to reach a five-figures income from a blog in less than 12 months?

Follow Dukeo’s Blog Earnings Reports and you will get an answer to both these questions!

blog monthly earnings report

Here is Dukeo’s income breakdown for last month:

  • Direct Advertising Sales: $260
  • Total: $260.00

If you take the blog income and divide it by the blog’s page views you will get a site wide eCPM of $28.34. That means for every 1000 page views, this blog makes about $28.34, or 2.8 cents per view. This is quite an increase, it’s about 2.5 times last month’s eCPM!

I know for a fact that to increase my blogging income, I should focus on affiliate programs. As I do not want to push anything and everything to you, I need to take some time to review products and services before endorsing them. This is a time-consuming process but this is the only way to make sure I never endorse a shitty product. In order to increase my affiliate sales on quality products, I decided to put together a list of valuable tools and resources that you can find on my Recommended page.

This month I haven’t sold any paid review. As far as I am concerned, I do not want to sell more than 2 paid reviews per month to keep their value high. There is still room for this month. Don’t miss your chance to get featured on Dukeo.

The total earnings more than doubled compared to last month. The interesting thing is that last month, I was saying that I would stop searching for buyers for Dukeo’s ad space, and I would rather focus on buiding up my traffic. Well, 2 days after I made the post, I sold 3 aditionnal banners on Dukeo which clearly increased Dukeo’s revenue compared to previous month. This month again, I’m not going to search for advertisers and I will work on writing valuable content for you. My main goal is to share what I learned with my readers!

    Hey Steven!

    Great article my friend! First time visitor from Blog engage.

    It’s not many people who are willing to open up their blogs earnings.

    If I can recommend a bigger focus on list building as well. I made about $300 in August and over $2,000 in september just because I’ve built my list and recommended an affiliate product.

    So I have more control of my income because I’ve built my list.

    1. It also really depends on the size of your list…

      So far I haven’t put too much effort in building mine. It’s on my to-do list. :)

      BTW, I removed the link from your comment (using a meta-refresh to stuff people with Hostgator, seriously?!)
