Make Money from Blog : October 2012 Report


It’s November now …. that’s mean the time for October report. I personally enjoy the reports because it’s not just telling you the data but it’s also my personal evaluation too.

We have more engagement through social media particularly facebook and linkedin within the month. It’s not a new thing anyway because we use our own services “social signal marketing” as content marketing in our blog content within the two platform.

What about adfly? We still in pursue to make a withdrawal within a weeks, that means we need to reach 5000 clicks on adfly links implemented here within the period. A week is our initial target, the next of course, as soon as possible.

It’s seems that the amount of content affect the adfly income. With the existing frequency (once or maybe twice a week for english post) we have manage a stable income from adfly which is above 400 clicks a month equivalent to estimation $ 0.5. Looking at 5000 click as target, there is a lot of work we need to do.

As a way of make money online, adfly is just one of many ways we do. That’s why we still keep adfly reports in the monthly reports. We like to share how to increase your adfly income within your blog while keep your credibility as bloggers.

Here’s what you’ll get in this monthly reports:
