December, December, December, you have been good to me. But, this month I also spent the most I have ever spent on content!
Let's get straight into it…
- Toward the end of December, I got invited to the Ezoic Premium program.
- My overall EPMV has increased in December to an average of just over $24
- Site 7 continues to go from strength to strength.
- I hired another 3 writers
- From Ezoic alone I earned $364.67 from 15,049 unique visits.
- From Amazon I earned a combined total of $67.81
- From digital products I made (two sites) I earned $125.23
- From other affiliate programs (combination of ShareASale, Awin, etc.) I earned $479.80
Total earnings: $1,037
Total spend: $1,229.11

I haven't added any new articles to this site over the past few months, nothing to report on but its traffic seems to have recovered the 301 redirect. I will make a content strategy at some point in the coming months for 30 articles and outsource those to one writer, giving her access to the site via her own WordPress login, so she has a bit of continuous work.

This site really deserves 80% of my attention and I am certain that some older, low-performing articles could do with revamping. It is a very fruitful site, however, with this niche, I am struggling to find low-competition keywords.

My temporarily abandoned case study. I am not actively adding articles to this site but the keywords are there and waiting. When I have spare resources I will action those and get this site to 100/150 posts and let it grow.
I am building that one to sell, so it has been positioned this way from the start. It has the potential to be bigger than my first pet site. However, more love and care has gone into the first one.
Site 7: Fitness
Age: 0 Years 4 Month 10 Days

Average Article Word Count: 1,193
Page Views This Month: 1,688
This month, I added 29 articles for a total of 31,788 words. This site will continue to be my main focus and I will be adding articles to it for the foreseeable future. I currently have 25 articles commissioned and assigned to my team of writers so I should add at least 30 articles in January 2022.
As you can see (if you have read previous income reports);
- My earnings and pageviews/visits are going up consistently so I am going to keep rinsing and repeating. More quality content, possibly more affiliate articles and not just informational.
- I am experimenting with the layout of these and I think I am going to stick to this one.
I also have an announcement to make…but I will hold off for a while *insert smug face here*
