SheepTech January08 Report Card
It is time for the very first SheepTech report card! The blog was started on 12th January, and has been running for just 19 days this month. Let’s have a look at the statistics for the first month.
For less than a month, 2,033 unique visitors was recorded with a total pageview of 2,902. StumbleUpon was the top traffic source, as two of all the 14 posts was being stumbled, which are:
Other visitors are either coming from blogs featuring the Apple WordPress theme article or from Entrecard. Only 6 visitors come from search engine, which is somewhat disappointing. The blog is not even ranked on the first page of Google for the keyword “Sheep Tech” or “SheepTech” — but surprisingly, my other blog mentioning SheepTech was ranked top instead.
RSS Feed Subscribers
At the time of writing this, there are only 15 subscribers (mind letting me know who you are by commenting here?). The highest recorded subscribers number was 19, which is on last Sunday. I have yet to reach at least 20 subscribers.
A grand total of $0.26, all from AdSense. That is the only advertisement currently placed on this blog, and despite all the traffic received, only $0.26 has been made.
Goal for February
Make it to Google’s first page for the keyword “SheepTech”. If it doesn’t even rank well for its own name, I doubt other articles will do well. For RSS subscribers, 30 should be a good start. Reach around 3,000 to 5,000 visitors for the whole February.
For monetizing, it should be later. For the initial few months, more effort will be put on content and traffic.
This is the first report card being posted, so do let me know if you wish to see any other stats as well. A report will be posted in every month, so that everyone will see how much the blog grows every month.
