It’s the start of a new month so it’s time for a quick review of my income for the previous month of May. It’s the fifth month of the year and also my fifth income report.
May has seen another slight increase in income from the previous month but still short of my record month in January 2016. Still it is an increase But it would be great to see a big jump in it soon.
The Extreme Review sites seem to be continuing to rank well based on the ranking tool I use and there has been an increase in traffic to the sites which reversed what happened in April which saw a decrease. So, more positive news. I’ve continued to add reviews and info posts to the sites as well as 3 posts a week to this site.
Still that’s enough of an introduction and I won’t make you scroll through a lot of stuff to get to the numbers. Here we go:

Just a small increase in Google search and social way down. I didn’t get a post shared like I did last month by the Diary of Felix Brown. Oh well. I’ll keep chipping away with it.
I only managed one review for this site and didn’t do any videos or podcasts. I’m not getting what I want to do with my Extreme Review sites at the moment so wanted to give more time to them. I still need to be making improvements on my productivity in that area too.
I’ve been working through the Buried Treasure course by Erica looking at the posts that get the most traffic and should be the ones I look at seeing if I can increase the conversions on them. I’ve made a couple of changes so far but need to do more.
So again my aim is to publish 30 posts to Extreme Review Sites and post 3 times a week to this blog as well as work through my older posts making changes.
I’ll post on Friday my update to my Extreme Review sites.
