Well… A very bad month for me :( Maybe because of my exams. My traffic and the earnings dropped approx. by 200%. Even though I got a PR4 in October, still no change. But at least, I got something to be happy about. My feed readers count went up :) And you guys must have noticed the theme change in October. Unfortunately, it was full of errors and problems. So I decided to fix it this weekend. And guess what? Huh, I had to redesign the whole thing again LOL. You can now see the better-than-before and tweaked version of my theme. I hope you guys will like it :)

Now coming back to the stats, the most popular posts of the previous month are as follows:

Blog Posts:

Blog Traffic:

google-analytics

Unique Visitors: 11,706
Pageviews: 22,903
Page/visits: 1.95
New visits: 89.00%
Average Time: 00:01:30

google-analytics-stats

My major traffic source was Google followed by StumbleUpon. I’m also happy that my organic traffic (Google, Yahoo etc.) has increased than inorganic traffic (SU, Digg etc.).

Earnings:

Google Adsense: $27~ ($90~ in the previous months)
Konetra: $9~ ($16~ in the previous months)

Total: $36~ :(

Top Keywords:

  1. vlc skins
  2. gmail emoticons
  3. vlc player skins
  4. pc_efi v5.2
  5. yahoo mash invitation

Feed Readers:This is something I’m very happy about: 170+ readers in November! :D Now my target is 200+ readers this month. I hope I’ll achieve it. :)

That’s all…! You can compare these stats with my September stats (was busy in Oct.) and see how much I lost this month.
