My Stats, Thoughts, Advice and Trepidation After Two Months On InfoBarrel
A Transparent Look at One IB Member's Experiences Thus Far
As promised in my article about my first month on InfoBarrel, here is a detailed look at my numbers, earnings, etc., after writing for IB for the past two months (comparison to last month in parentheses):
ï»¿ï»¿ï»¿Time On IB: Two months
Articles: 33 (+3)
Achievement Points: 326 (+30)
Most Views For Single Article: 1,283 (+863)
Least Views For Single Article: 7 (-1)
Adsense Clicks: 15 (+11) << NEW METRIC
Total Earnings: $6.04 (up 1,024%)
So, as you can see, I slacked (in a major way) in terms of writing articles. However, I have a good reason! The more I read about generating quality content, SEO, copywriting for titles, and keyword research, the more I'm convinced that quality trumps quantity -- at least in the long run.
Therefore, I've been doing a lot of keyword research with Google Keywords and Market Samurai to make sure my next batch of articles are top notch money makers.
I am happy to see the increase in Adsense earnings. It's still very low, but it's huge compared to my first month. My goal for 2011 is still $500/month passive income (from IB and elsewhere), and I'm going to keep pushing toward this!
I have yet to make an Amazon sale, so that will be a major goal for my third month here on IB. Thanks to everyone for the continued support and encouragement! Stay tuned for the next report!
