My August 2014 Income and Traffic Report

Welcome to my 7th Monthly report for 2014!

This is the 7th Time of my income and traffic report. There are lots of changes and project’s progress in each month. I just wanted to share a detailed report of what I’ve done and everything that I’ve learned from the previous month. And everything that was going on with my online business stuffs, income, expenses and traffic through Be Rich and Rich Journey! I hope that this report would be an inspiration for you to get started your own online business and make it’s happened.

The reason why I do this:

  • To keep track and help me focus for currently important projects each month.
  • To improve productivity, but not to stress for myself each month.
  • To inspire you to start your own online business.
  • To share key successes and failures during each month that I’ve experienced.

Ok. Let’s see, in my report!

What was happening in August?

Niche Site #1 Update: 72% revenue increasing

In July, I was putting more fresh, useful and unique contents, which over 6000 words and product-comparison chart. I just wanted to rank higher in the search engine after my overall traffic was decreased in Jun. So by the end of this month, I really impressed with how revenue had increased over 72% when compared with last month. As you can see from the picture below.


Niche Site #2 Update: First earning and traffic increasing

When compared with the last income report. Overall traffic increased only slightly as you can see from the picture below. So I was continuing bought high PR links from Seolutions and guest posting strategy. The good news was I got first earning $2.50!!! And some related long tail keyword was ranking #1 in Google. This inner-page contained over 1500 words with no backlink. So I’m sure that content marketing is still king.


Niche Site #3 Update: In progress for building websites

I was done setup this website and published 3 pieces of 4000 words, fresh and useful contents, which also include product-comparison chart.  I still needed around 20-30 contents for blog section and product-review section. I’m sure that all remains tasks will be done by early September.

Launched my 6th Kindle eBook


After few months of researching & developing contents, I finished and launched  my 6th  Kindle eBook in Online Business Series, “Passive Income  with Amazon Kindle & CreateSpace”. I wrote this guide in Thai Language since February this year as I was sharing with you in this post. I wanted  this guide to help the  beginners to start their own passive income with their own books as I did with my books.


Short-vacation to Koh Samui, Suratthani, Thailand


If you love sea, sand and sun. You definitely love Koh Samui. This was the first time I visited this island and I really love it. I saw a lot of foreigners  here and everyone seemed happy. There were a lot of activities that you would enjoy while travelling here. For me, I really enjoyed island-tour,  swimming and reading by the sea. And of course, I didn’t bring any computer and online stuffs during this trip. I just wanted to get some break.

    It’s very inspiring to see your progress RM! Are you still in Thailand? I’m gonna spend October there 😀

    • Yes, sure. Mostly I’m in Bangkok. What is your plan anyway? I’ll have a trip to Chaing Mai for Empire Flipper Workshop around October. But I’m not sure when. So I think we can have some coffee. And I can show you around some interesting places in BKK. 🙂

  • Joe

    Great numbers.

    Thanks for sharing your progress.

  • Wow,,,, you almost hit $1,000 a month from the passive ways!

    This is really amazing for me because I’m familiar with only paid traffic. Never thought free traffic can really make lots of money. I have to change my thoughts now.

    Anyway, I’ll take my time to study passive ways as you do soon 🙂

    Congrats sis!

    • Thanks N’Bank, I’m really impressed with how you make money with paid traffic too. I know that you make a LOT of money. Hahaha. Well, talk soon!
