This has been a great year for change your thoughts and it has gone from strength to strength and it's all down to you.
I thought I would share the highlights and show what can be achieved in a year.
Traffic: unique Visitors
I am very pleased with the amount of traffic I am getting just now and I have to say that if it wasn't for stumbleupon I would have had half the traffic. I have started to optimize the blog for SEO to get more search traffic as I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket. Organic search is accounting for about 20% of all traffic which is quite good.
Top 10 articles for 2007
Top 10 articles are as follows:
I am also pleased with the earnings. I only started affiliate marketing at the end of October this year and have started to see results from it. I have taken Google adsense off the blog so the figures have dipped since October, where previously I was earning around $100 per month. I may put adsense back on the blog, I am not sure yet as adsense seems the least obtrusive and readers are used to it on blogs.
