Monthly income report for December looks much better than all the previous ones. Although the traffic was almost the same as in November, I have earned $12 from Amazon Affiliate Program. I’ve also noticed that people click on Amazon links on a regular basis. On the other hand, I didn’t have any earnings from Media.net, so I’ve decided to remove Media.net ads completely and focus more on Amazon products.
Traffic Compared To Last Month
My blog traffic in December was almost the same as in November. There were 5% more sessions but that’s not something very special. The good thing is that, although I am writing less, the traffic doesn’t decrease. Also, the bounce rate is around 5% which is more than good.
I hope that my free dividend investing e-book will lead to more visitors and more subscribers in the future. My goal for this year is to have at least 2k visitors per month which is something I can achieve easily.
As I already wrote at the beginning of this monthly income report, I have earned $12 from Amazon Associates in December. I still don’t have enough traffic to say that Amazon Associates is the best affiliate program that I can have, but I can see that people click on Amazon ads, and these clicks convert to sales.
Stocks In My Portfolio
The total return for December was 1,95%, while the overall return for 2020 was 36,03%. These are amazing results for 4 months of investing. My goal is to have an average of 20% gain per year with my whole portfolio.
January 2021 Goals
