Well 2006 is over so I thought i better post my stats for 2006.
2006 was my first year as a web entrepreneur… my first website was created, my first adsense click was made, i bought a website, hired people to work on my sites… plus i believe i’d laid the foundations for some massive sites to come in 2007.
my adsense impressions in 2006 were 21,000. (started adsense in August).
9000 impressions for JPEGr which i only bought about 2 weeks ago.
i’d say in total my sites totalled 30,000 impressions. Unique hits would be hard to predict but i can tell you JPEGr got 2800 unique hits in the couple of weeks i’ve owned it from 92 countries around the globe with China, the US and Brazil my main sources of traffic. I’d estimate my sites overall got about 5000 unique hits since August.
As for revenue, i’ve almost got my first adsense check from google. I won’t have it this month but hopefully, i should top $100 next month.
I’ve invested easily $1000 this year in websites… $500 on JPEGr, $60 for work on JPEGr, $350 in a website syndicate and a bit on advertising and domain names, plus server expenses. So at the minute i’m about $900 in the red plus i’ve got a $300 revamp for theleavingcert.com on the way.
So i’ll start 2007 about $1200 in the red. But, i can afford it. I’m very comfortable at the minute financially and have a routine in place; I save about half of what i earn in my real job. Plus, in reality JPEGr is worth over $1000 and once theleavingcert.com get’s it’s revamp it should be worth roughly $600-700.
My syndicate websites (10 of them) will undoubtably pay off in 2007 and i’m very excited about them as i believe we’ve some excellent ideas.
