May 2011 Referrals breakdown
Traffic at Craving Tech is now around half of what it used to be, thanks to the Google Panda update in April *sigh*. I would probably blame myself for not optimizing and not doing any SEO work in this blog (don’t really have the time for that). Nevertheless, Craving Tech’s influence is still strong in the I.T industry (if not more) and I’m still “wanted” to write reviews for tech-related consumer products here in Australia and around the world at times. As always, reviews will still be coming to keep you up to date with the latest products and whether you should buy them or not. Upcoming reviews: Belkin networking products, Belkin laptop cooling pad, Breville ikon Froojie juice fountain (on its way to me), iPad 2 cases, and more to come!

I can’t definitely rely on Google AdSense earnings anymore due to the number of traffic drop. Thankfully, this blog’s income is not being put under one basket so I can still somewhat make a living and pay this blog’s expenses (which is pretty minimal anyway). Considering I’m still working full time, at this stage I’m still considering this income as a bonus so I’m not too stressed about it. Though it’d be great to get $250-350 a month from AdSense alone like last time…
This month’s income (June) should be better as I’ve received a few sponsored posts requests so I will be able to put a report on that next month assuming they are approved quickly.
How was your traffic and income stats last month? Was it good?
