This month concludes two year’s worth of blog stats, and it’s been a wild ride.

I was able to publish four posts this month:

Alexa

Although the Alexa ranking is gone for the old domain, Alexa still states that there are 61 total sites linking into that domain.

The Alexa ranking stayed steady for the new domain.

Sum of Stats for Google Search Console

I’m not sure how much sense it makes to add the search impressions together since the search impressions for the new domain is rounded to the nearest 100. Nevertheless, here they are:

  • Clicks → 441
  • Search Impressions → 11,941

AdSense

I must be doing something right - I received an email from Google AdSense with the subject November report: your revenue grew by 100%. Great progress!

100%? Wow! It sounds a whole lot more than going from one dollar to two!

I’m a bit confused about how my “estimated earnings” are $5.81 while my balance last month was $50.17. That only an increase of $2.15.

Maybe “estimated earnings” aren’t necessarily applied to the balance right away?

  • Balance → $52.32
  • Estimated earnings → $5.81
  • Impressions → 2,605
  • Clicks → 20
