The first month of the new year and I managed to get 1 new post out, which is one better than last month.
As usual I will publish my traffic and Income report and reveal everything I have been up to this month!
What Have I Got Up To In January
After not publishing any new posts last month, the first thing I wanted to do was to write a new post for the blog, which I did.
I published a tutorial on using SEMRush to find out exactly what your competitors are ranking for. This is a great tool and definitely worth looking at!
Again, the majority of my time was spent on my other online business. I took the plunge this month and hired a marketing manager to run that side of things, so this has really taken a weight off my shoulders and hopefully freed up a bit more time to work on this blog!
Went on a couple of trips
I decided to treat the girlfriend to a weekend in London for Christmas, We stayed at the Shard and went to see Phantom of the opera which was great!
We also went to Dublin for the weekend with a group of friends to sample the nightlife and the Guinness!!
Traffic is up on last month by over 500 visits. Not bad considering I didn’t do anything apart from publish 1 post!
Where did that traffic come from
Direct traffic and organic traffic is up this month which Is good to see. We are also getting decent traffic from Matts blog

Hmmm, this is a strange one, our DA and PA have dropped a bit from last month!
Another quiet month in regards to content. I managed to get away a couple of times too. For some reason our metrics have dropped slightly but it was another good month in terms of profit, with the majority coming from my purchased site!
Plans for next month
Again I plan on getting at least 1 quality post published, but I will try to add more if I can. I have done very little in terms of promotion lately so this is something I need to work on. I have no trips planned so that should leave me with a bit more time
