2 Weeks at Wealthy Affiliate
Last Update: Feb 16, 2013
My most exciting news for the week is that I have some income! Ten cents. Eight of these cents come from a viewer who clicked my Amazon food book link and ended up buying a kids' ebook about pirates (I'm not hating, mystery customer. Thank you for your business!) The other two cents came from Hubpages, which I've only had monetized for a couple of days, so I'm actually thinking that's the most reliable source of income I have at the moment. Maybe I should write more for Hubpages.
Anyway, besides income, I learned some really useful things this week, like how to set up my Google authorship profile. Now my pages show up in searches with a thumbnail of my picture next to them, which I think could be really make them stand out. When I say my pages, though, I mean three them pages, because apparently that's how many have been indexed so far. Also, though I've had an average of 24 unique visitors a day, I've only had three visitors total come from Google searches. (And they were a while ago, so they may have been me before I figured out how to block my own stats.)
This is encouraging progress, though. I have a lot of spare time this week, so hopefully I'll have more to report next week, and I'm leaning toward renewing my premium membership for another month. I would love to know how long I'm likely to have to wait (or how many articles I'm likely to have to write) before there's a reasonable chance of paying my membership fee with earnings. That's my first goal.
