Cooking Up an Income – December Profits
It's been quite the week here with all these Cooking Up an Income Reports. I hope you haven't tired of them yet. I tried to break it up a little with some tasty Soy Ginger Noodles and a deelish Easy Pulled Pork Chili recipe, and I promise to bake you something sweet and delicious after this post is out 🙂
So here are the numbers for December:
- Google Adsense – $109.40
- Infolinks – $61.09
- Viglink – $0
- Ligit – $$9.20
Total Blog Income = $179.69
Here's what Google Analytics had to say:
You'll notice that there was a big drop this month in the number of people who came by The Endless Meal. This might have had something to do with the only *cough* 3 new posts put up. Still, considering all the eating and shopping and entertaining (and not blogging) that was going on around here in December, it is pretty amazing that so many awesome peeps still stopped by for a visit.
You'll notice that the top spot for referral traffic in December belongs to Pinterest. The amount of traffic The Endless Meal receives from Pinterest has been steadily climbing. My hunch is that it has been climbing higher in direct correlation to the photography here improving.
