Google Shares the Wealth
There was a report in Silicon Valley.com that Google revenue for the first quarter was up 23%.
My question: “Does this mean anything for bloggers?”
The answer: A resounding, ‘yes!’
Blog Network Research Insights
I did some simple research at my own blog network.
In January of the year we averaged $1.27 ecpm for the month.
In February – $1.26 ecpm.
In March – $1.50.
That’s $1.35 ecpm for the first quarter overall.
Good News for Google and …
In April, the first 15 days of this month, we averaged $2.18 ecpm. Big jump.
Google revenue jumps. Our ecpm jumped. Hmm….
Curiously, last year during this very same time period – April 1-15 our ecpm was a whopping $0.61…during the depth of the recession.
First quarter last year – $0.64.
Google’s revenue is up over last year. Our ecpm is up more than 100% over the same time period last year. Hmmm…
When Bloggers Should Work Hard
My philosophy – when things are going well, I’d better work hard. When things are going poorly, I’d better work hard because sooner or later the will get better.
We struggled but kept our pace all through last year so that when things came back, as they always do, we would be ahead of those who dropped out. The network and our earnings responded.
