Hello May sign

It was a good month.  Not much else to say.  I stuck with the same strategy which is publishing lots of excellent content targeting low competition keywords.  Rinse and repeat.

Oh yeah, one change I made is I slapped up 2 Media.net ads on my sites again with good results.  I use one 600×250 unit and their exit pop ad.  Media.net being Media.net keep asking me to add more units, but I’m good with two.

DISCLAIMER:  This income report does NOT include revenue or expenses from Fatstacksblog.com.  I only include revenue and expenses from my other sites.  It’s not helpful for you for me to tell you how much I make telling you how much I make.  

All figures are in USD.

Expenses for all niche sites

I lump together all expenses for all 7 niche sites because it’s difficult, impractical and unhelpful to spend the time allocating each expense to each site.

Total expenses for 7 niche sites: $6,174

Net Income: $44,695 USD


Content investment in May 2019

Total content investment:  $2,416 – small investment.  Placed big order in April and another in early June.

Net income after content investment: $42,279 USD

I explain here why I extract content cost from expenses.

Revenue Screenshots

Every once in a while I slap up some screenshots.  I get asked to do this, so here they are.  Mind you I don’t include screenshots of every revenue source – just the main ones.  There are a handful of other revenue sources, but they’re all pretty small (relative to the few I put here).

Adsense

Media.net

As you can see below, I resumed Media.net again in May.  I’m pretty happy with performance – it added net gain to ad revenue.
