Another month has gone by on Ask Will Online. First impressions, it has been one of the best month with some statistics increasing compared to last month. I have noticed a trend in Ask Will Online especially it’s pageviews. As you can see on the right, my pageviews from Blogger’s perspective have been increasing since the beginning. But, every other month, they decrease a little like my blog is taking its foot off the accelerator and changing gear. For this reason, due to the fact that last month was a drop in traffic, I’m going to expect the stats to increase just like they have.
I have also unfortunately found that next month won’t be a successful month. Ask Will Online, as well as being a blog on blogging tips, how to make money online, Adsense help and more has also lots of revision content for students who are struggling with their school subjects. The problem is that in England, where most of my educational traffic comes from, it is the Easter Holidays where students are not wanting help for school as they are having a break from it! Already, traffic has dropped: I just need to wait and see to what extent the traffic drops.

Making Money Online
- My conversion rate has completely DOUBLED. It’s a huge difference. Last month, I achieved a CTR of 0.50%. My new CTR is now a magnificent 1.08% which is in fact more than double! My only explanation for this is the fact the header advert changed from a BuySellAds advert to an Adsense. But, that only changed half way through the month?
- Unfortunately, my CPC has halved from £0.40 ($0.63) to £0.21 ($0.34) a click which in theory would have meant my earnings would stay constant to last month’s because one stat has doubled and the other has halved. But, you are forgetting my pageviews have increased since last month. For this reason, my earnings have doubled.
- I’m still more concerned at keeping this high CTR. Earnings and CPC mean nothing to mean at the moment. If CTR continues to increase or stays constant at 1% as my traffic increase, I will be a very happy blogger.
Do you usually get much referral traffic from social media?
The majority of the referral traffic is from social media. However, from the amount of followers I have on Twitter and Facebook, it can't be considered a lot of traffic from the social media sites.
