Traffic Statistics :
Analysing the Traffic Statistics is a great way to measure how does your blog perform as compared to last month. I do this every month to see where I’m standing. If you are not doing this activity yet, I suggest you to start critiquing your web statistics, as it’s a great way to find out, how you are performing. If you have just started your blogging venture, then rather focusing on earnings, your core focus should be on traffic stats, having more subscribers over Email and Social media.
Here are the traffic stats for the Month of June, I received a total of 2171 number of unique visitors and 3011 Sessions in the last month. For a quick revision, the number was standing at 2460 Unique Visitors with 3316 Sessions Last Month.

Let’s have a comparison with March Last Month (June vs May):
Let’s have a look on the traffic sources to get an idea on what are the top traffic acquisition sources for this blog.
Comparison with the Month of May 2016.
Major Observations in Traffic :
- Traffic went little down, but since Ramadan was there and it was a little difficult to manage everything, so it seems fine to me.
- The traffic from organic search is decreased by 3.5% and i don’t like this thing at all. This shows that i need to work on regularly updating the content.
- Even with around 4% reduction in Social Media traffic, it still remained the top traffic acquisition channel.
- With most of the things being in negative, this should be something i need to workout, so i’m looking forward to make it correct.

Freelancing, freelancing and freelancing. Most of the people were of the view that why i have started freelancing when you are already running a digital marketing agency. The answer to that is that freelancing helps me to remember from where i started everything. It’s a great learning, more then earning, the learning process when you work as a freelancer and as a digital marketing agency head, both are different things.
For the time being, I will keep on doing freelancing too as a separate entity.
This month, there were no specific expenses.
Total Income :
The total income will be $55.96 + $125 + $500 -$30 = $800.96.
P.S. Just for a re-cap, it was $650.96 last month, so the trend continuous.
Last month goals checkup :
Goal Checkups are some sort of motivation for me. I keep a check every month to see what I’m doing with my blog. Last month, I had few goals for June, Let’s see how much successful I was on them.
- Last month, I planned to earned at least $700 from freelancing and consultation through this blog, finally i was able to cross it. [PASSED]
- I will make sure to write at least 6-7 posts last month. I tried, I tried but was only able to write 4 posts, busy schedules and on-going ramadan made it difficult, but this shouldn’t be considered an exception. [FAILED]
- Last month, I planned to write More comments, interact with more people and gain new readers! Finally I’m glad that i did it. [PASSED]
- I’m planning to do Guest Blogging on Different Blogs for a while, but looks like the busy schedule allowing me to do that, but i’m still figuring it out.[FAILED]
- Ebook is completed, just compiling is required, and it looks like i’m too lazy to do that, so im in process of hiring someone who can do it.[FAILED]
Plans for July 2016.
- Write at least 6-7 Posts on this blog and get the SEO series completed!
- Should earn at least $700 from Freelancing and Consultation!
- Improve the user experience of the website, get more traffic and improve the loading speed of the time.
- Wish me a best of luck in all these things, thank you.
