Income Report May 2019 (7 Niche Sites)

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 ads on my sites again with good results.  I use one 600×250 unit and their exit pop ad. being keep asking me to add more units, but I’m good with two.

DISCLAIMER:  This income report does NOT include revenue or expenses from  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: ,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).

As you can see below, I resumed again in May.  I’m pretty happy with performance – it added net gain to ad revenue. ad revenue may 2019

    1. Hey Constance, results surprisingly good for 2 units. I particularly like the exit pop unit because most networks don’t offer it and I wasn’t monetizing exit intent with anything so pure gravy.

  1. Aloha Jon!

    Do you (or will you) share niche of sites one and two? Obviously I’m not asking for something as detailed as “Keto for working women” but something as broad as “keto” would be nice. Or “luggage” or “camping gear” or whatever.

    Typically I solely do aff marketing but I’m working on increasing traffic to my SugarsBeach site for ads. Right now I have approx 6% RPM with Adsense. I’m aiming for MediaVine where I hope to at least double the RPM.

    Adding to my article specific question, I also have a random one. Once I’m approved for SB site, can I place MediaVine ads on a site that isn’t getting 25k+ sessions yet?

    Thanks! Darlene

    1. Hi Darlene, sorry, I’m not revealing anything because as soon as I do 1,000 people will jump into the niche and that’s the last thing I need.
