Hi,

I started my blogging journey with Woblogger blog on 04th August in 2014. In fast four months, I got about 20 visitors per day and within first month I made about $125.

It is my first income and it is an small amount. But, it gives me a huge confidence.

From the beginning, my traffic stats:

Page views - 8273
Users - 1355
Sessions - 2072
Bounce rate - 11.44%
Avg. session duration - 04:14

Here is an screenshot of my traffic stats.

    I did not use adsense beause of low traffic. I used affiliate marketing.

    Congratulations.

    That's a really low bounce rate so you must be doing something that your visitors want and keeping them engaged.

    Do you use any video on the site?

    Are your affiliate sales through banners, products links etc. or do you capture leads and then market to them?

      I thinks following reasons helps me to decrease the bounce rate.
      • I always publish long posts.
      • Inter-linking between relevant posts is very important.
      • Clear design of my blog.
      • I add links of well reputed, high pr, relevant blog posts.
      In some posts, I use videos. Using videos id very effective.

      I promote affiliate links with coupon codes, great reviews. I answers for following questions in my post.
      • What is the product or service?
      • Who can use it?
      • What are the benefits of that product or service?
      • How to use it?
      • Customer support?
      • Discount?
      • Pros and cons?
      I also include product promotional videos.

      My first sale is about $65 and others are $40 and $20. Good targeted traffic very important for conversion. Build traffic manually.

    I'd say get some more traffic then go adsense. It's going to be hard to make money from adsense but you can use it to supplement your income, but based on your current traffic you won't make much.

      Some users put comments on my posts. I usually publish long posts and I made links between posts. It is very effective method to decrease bounce rate.

          Interlinking articles is the best solution for decreasing bounce rate on Blog. When you write a new article try to link it with older articles using anchor texts. This way the visitors will get more articles to read and stay more time on your Blog. As the number of articles read by a visitor increases the bounce rate of the Blog decreases.

          Building large amount of targeted traffic is difficult. Nevertheless, I followed very simple steps to build some targeted traffic to my blog.

          1. Forum posting - I posted some posts in relevant niche.
          2. blog commenting - I build backlinks by commenting on high pr well reputed blog in same niche.
          3. Social media - I promoted my posts on FB, Twitter, G+, Pinterest, and Tumblr.

          Using these 3 methods, we can build more traffic than my current stats.

      About 50% of total visitors come from Search engine (Google).
      About 25% of total visitors come from referrals.
      And others are from social media, email subscribers, direct and others..

      It depends on the affiliate offer you're signed up with. Adsense pays per click or $1-2 per 1000 views.
      With a good affiliate offer, you may get $50 commission per sale. I've even heard of people giving away $500 commission per sale.
