Ways to Make Money OnlineMake Money Online Revenue Report : 3rd Quarter 2011

This is the third quarterly revenue report, for 2011.

Total online revenue $12,754.87 ($138.64 a day)

My lowest quarter in 2 years! Previous lowest was the 3rd quarter in 2009. There is a tendency for less money to be made online in this quarter presumably because advertisers are holding back what they spend on ads in preparation for spending more during the Christmas period, but does feel lower than it should be, guess the world economic financial problems are hurting ad revenue as mine have gone down.

This make money online revenue report does not include earnings through my SEO business, AdSense themes sold at SEO Themes or any investments, so ONLY affiliate and advertising (AdSense type programs) revenue.

During this quarter was working a LOT on a Stallion Theme update that added new Stallion layouts and a new SEO menu to the WPRobot Autoblog Plugin. WPRobot is by far the best autoblog WordPress plugin on the market, it’s got loads of modules covering a large list of content sources (it’s awesome), but it’s got the usual SEO mistakes like using nofollow, not hiding affiliate links and affiliate/autoblog footprints Google etc… can use to downgrade autoblogs, Stallion 6.2 will remove most of the footprints.

Use the WP Robot discount code: Stallion

I’m spending way too much time on the Stallion SEO theme considering the amount of money it makes from theme sales. I enjoy the challenge of adding new features, BUT it takes a lot of time developing new features and that time could be spent making more websites etc… which would make more money long term. And let’s not forget my SEO clients needs :-)

Finally got around to making the Stallion WordPress SEO Plugin that recovers link benefit from sections of a WordPress blog you don’t want indexing (admin/login pages, monthly archives…). Seems to be getting a lot of low Star Ratings on the WordPress Plugin Repository page :-(
