Blog Statistics Update June – July 2014

Limited commentary for me this month.  I’m just trying to hang on through the end of this ride.  More next month.

Blog Balance Sheet


No income again this month, same expenses as usual.




Adsense: $0

affiliate income: $0




hosting: $10.95



Search Terms from Real People


Not too many funny search terms this month, so I’ll just include search terms that I never expected would come to EPF.  It turns out that I’ve written a lot of one-off articles that are related to PF but not the core message of the blog.

  1. Thanks for sharing your blog statistic Emily! May I know what’s the reason of your fluctuations?

    1. Emily says:

      I think that’s just kind of how the internet works. This was actually quite a low volatility month.

  2. That search term you mentioned, “cheap cars and rich people”, caught me attention. Makes one wonder if it was written by such a person (not a bad move to take that strategy), someone who is thinking about that approach, or perhaps someone annoyed by those people.

    1. Emily says:

      I am certainly hoping for the second option! For the first, I think almost no one considers themselves to be rich and for the third, if someone drove a cheap car they probably wouldn’t be regarded as rich by most others (though we know better).

  3. Been having fluctuations too on my blog’s stat. One thing I’ve learned is that worrying over the fluctuations takes time away from working on the blog. Less time working on the blog leads to less blog content, attracts less new readers, and leads to less visitor activity.

  4. Thanks for sharing the information. It’s always interesting to see how many ‘hits’ people are getting. Every hit is work, and every Adsense penny is well deserved.

    Even with ads, no revenue?

    1. Emily says:

      I haven’t made any sales through the blog in a few months. I don’t count Republic Wireless referrals. Adsense is accumulating a bit every month, but only pays out at $100 increments. If you want to help, you can sign up for a product or use an Amazon link to buy something. 😉
