The beginning of the month is always marked by an analysis of my blogging revenue, and this time is the income report December 2016
I had high expectations for December, mostly fueled by Christmas sales. However I knew from my previous experiences that the internet traffic drops sharply on December 23rd, and rarely rebounds before the new year.
Considering this scenario I wasn’t sure I could beat my November earnings, but I was expecting it to be similar.
Income Report December 2016:
In this blog income report I am mostly posting my affiliate earnings, but not only. December was good, but slightly less impressive than November. Overall I am satisfied, but I am slightly concerned for January’s results. In January people buy much less things online, therefore CPC also decreases as less companies invest in market.
Adsense and Other Income:
AdSense also showed good improvement in November, namely on the travel website. However overall it had a virtually equal result as November.

It was slightly less than I expected, but I improved my websites SEO with better content, better writing and CDN, so I hope I can get more users on my network in January. Especially to make up for the lesser amount of sales expected for January.
