I'm a bit late in posting this, but here is an update for my passive income in May 2017.


Extra income report May 2017 - passive income report


You can find the full passive income report on my website. I'm sharing this article both to show people what is possible and also to track my progress and drive myself towards better results. These passive income reports show the extra money that I've earned through my hard efforts in blogging. It's my pathway to financial freedom in the future.  


Extra Income Report - May 2017 - Passive Income

May was good, but not as strong as I was hoping. My traffic declined a bit (down to 110,000 page views a month), so this will be a big focus for me in June. I'm back to writing more content and doing some off page SEO. I've also designed a whole bunch of new pins on Pinterest, so I'm crossing my fingers that my Pinterest traffic will rebound.  


I'm also trying to strengthen the placement for one of my top articles: 2017 hardwood flooring trends. It's currently ranking #2 on Google, but I would love for it to be #1. We'll see if I can get there. This was my #1 article last year and was generating over 14,000 clicks/month; this year, it's only contributing around 7,000 clicks/month.

Traffic Report

I'm working on increasing this during the month of June.   The majority of my traffic is organic search (i.e. through google/yahoo/bing, etc). I have been working to grow and diversify my traffic and Pinterest is helping out with that.  Here's a link to my Pinterest profile if you want to follow my blog posts on there.  And, here's a tutorial on using Pinterest to drive massive traffic.  


Oh, and if you have an interest in starting your own blog, check out my free tutorial here. (BTW, It costs way less than most people realize. You can get started for under $4/month).  


Passive Income Results:

Affiliate sales $444.60

Amazon $377.70 (this was less than normal as a customer returned a bathtub...so the $79 commission was reversed.

EZBZ $ 1.40 (Customers can find local contractors here. Also, if you are a small business owner, you can sign up to be in the directory for free).

Tailwind $ .50 (this is my secret weapon to my success on Pinterest. Love it!). By the way, if you use my affiliate link here, you'll get a free trial + later if you decide to do the paid version, you'll get a $15 discount. One of the smartest investments I made on my blog.

Bluehost $ 65.00 (This is where you can get website hosting for just $3.95/month). Do you want to start your own website? Check out my blog host on how to create a website in 3 simple steps.


Ebooks/Ko-fi $ 48.54


Ad Revenue $1,054.32 (my highest so far)

Monumetric $995.55

Adsense $ 54.32 (only on 15% of pages)

Youtube $ 4.15


Total passive income = $1,547   I'm falling a bit further behind in my goals as my passive income hasn't been growing much. I've been making a bunch of changes and cranking out some new articles and so far, June is looking stronger


Stay tune for June's results.
