SheepTech November10 Report Card

SheepTech's traffic for November 2010, by SiteMeter

Google Analytics tracking was disrupted for four days in November while I was experimenting with CloudFlare, resulting in inaccurate traffic reporting. Data from SiteMeter will be used instead.

Visitors number experience very little change from October, at around 63,000. Alexa ranking continues to rise, from October’s 139,423 to 101,956.

Money Made

Revenue went down in spite of the relatively constant traffic. Quite puzzling as it should be the opposite since the holiday season is coming.

AdSense: $711.52 (-$72.09)
Infolinks: $38.9 (-$5.67)
BlogAds: $28.70 (+$0)
Contextweb: $5.91 (+$1.65)
Private ads: $33.33 (+$0)

Total: $818.36 (-$76.11)

Uptime, RSS subscribers

Uptime reporting was also disrupted. SheepTech’s uptime was not tracked directly, but was assumed to be the same as the other blog’s uptime which I track using Pingdom, hosted on the same server.

The blog faced some downtime due to heavy load, resulting in HostGator suspending it for several hours, and I have no other backup solution to track SheepTech’s exact uptime.

The mentioned blog’s uptime is at 99.31% for November, but SheepTech definitely have much higher uptime than that.

The number of RSS subscribers is slightly higher, 588 at the time of writing but have exceeded 600 for several times in the past week.

    Based on the Total Number of Uniques and Pageviews you are getting, I think your Alexa rank is very HIGH (>100K)

    Try adding Alexa Widget to your Site. You;ll probably be in top 100K soon πŸ™‚

      Alexa ranking should improve over time, with it at around 80k according to the 1 month data.

      Does the widget really work? I saw blogs with much lower traffic but has Alexa ranking of around 30k. Puzzling.

        @Vincent, Yes, that Widget works! Search in Google for “how to improve Alexa rank” and see yourself!

        Although Alexa is complete crap, but we’ve to show our rankings to Advertisers :-/

    is the adsense earning from this blog alone?

    • Vincent - December 17, 2010 @ 8:52 am

      @Praveen, yes, all the reportings are solely from this blog.

      • Vuong - December 17, 2010 @ 9:37 am

        @Vincent, Your result is great. I hope one day I can reach your figure. How long do you operate this blog?

        • Vincent - December 17, 2010 @ 12:21 pm

          Thanks Vuong, I started SheepTech in 2008, but stop intermittently in between. I started writing regularly again and my traffic obviously follow suit as shown in the SiteMeter graph.
