Actually working to diversify my content portfolio further. Not much to report as it has been standard for me. So I guess I am the fine crowd.
Pageviews are going downtrend but I think that's seasonal with my niches, as the majority of the schools are starting.
RPM appears to be trending higher, as the same ads budget going into less pageviews as a whole across all publishers of my niche. So with less pageview and higher RPM, my earning actually balanced out while being slightly lower.
Working for more contents, sites, across additional topics. My topics go in and out of favor (mostly out mind you), not because of google, but because of the general public. A part of my routine is to listen and observe - what people want and need. All I want is a slice of the popularity pie and I am good.
Expecting an amazing christmas and winter break, as hopefully advertisers pump more ads dollars while my sites reach further maturities. Next two months will be nonstop crunching for me and hope for a good winter harvest.
I do expect october and november to be slower than my summer break months, but have to work through it. It's business. It's not fun to work harder for less money. But it is what it is. Business.
Tighten my belt and save up with december earning, and brace for the slowest months from jan-june.
