yesterday was JPEGr’s first full day under my ownership.
Despite zero advertising, it received just over 1000 hits from 170 unique visitors. What surprised me most was the location of the hit’s. An even spread across the world. Majority coming from Europe & the US but a nice scattering across the southern hemisphere also.
Hits from 33 countries worldwide. Today so far, JPEGr is on course to equal yesterdays numbers so it’s all good so far. Yesterday, 55 people registered on the site, today, 30 so far.
One concern i have is the adsense text links. Despite over 1000 page impressions, there were only 2 clicks. (low paying clicks as well). So from a revenue point of view, it’s under-performing. I may be forced to display regular/rectangular banner ads if the text link ads don’t deliver. However they blend in well with the site and i’m very reluctant to change any part of the site with a seemingly consistent traffic flow.
I’ve also hired someone to submit the site to over 100 PR4,5,6,7 & 8 directories so that should cement a low pagerank and bring in a few visitors in the process. So far, JPEGr has been an absolute steal. With a bit of advertising, it can become a reliable source of income which is exactly what I want.
