Just quickly, I forgot to publish an update for November 2016. In November the BBQ website that I set up during the Earn1000 Course made £84.62. Not mind blowing numbers but for a website about BBQs in the winter in the UK that is not too bad.
Remember all I have done is set up this Amazon affiliate website with some content and waited for Google to rank this content and drive visitors. I have done no link building and no promotion at all. So this revenue really is passive at the moment.
OK, back to December 2016. The website made £113.03, so we hit the £100+ mark for a single month, which is a milestone I like to achieve. The original goal for this website was to make £1000+ a year because it is a simple [foundation] website on which we can add too.
In December 2016 the website attracted 900 unique visitors (1060 sessions). On average each visitor visited 2.27 pages and spent 1:56 mins on the site. The bounce rate was 55.38%. These are all very good stats that I am happy with.
In total the BBQ website has made £3641.97 after it was setup 22 months ago. So that is averaging £165.54 per month. However it was not until month 11 when the website really started to get some traction. £3564.98 has come in the last 11 months, so this works out as £324.09 per month for each of the last 11 months. This is pretty good.
