Yeah… It is time to show the result after speeding so much time on blog optimization. Here you are ~ JayceOoi.com site performance after optimization.


JayceOoi.com performance overview

On average, pages in your site take 6.7 seconds to load (updated on Feb 14, 2011). This is slower than 85% of sites. These estimates are of high accuracy (more than 1000 data points). The chart below shows how your site’s average page load time has changed over the last few months. For your reference, it also shows the 20th percentile value across all sites, separating slow and fast load times.

Based on chart above (from Google Webmaster Tools), there was a drop in the middle of January. That was the result after blog optimization ~ about 5-6 seconds faster. And another 1 in early February ~ Moving out from HostMonster shared web hosting to HostGator VPS hosting ~ 1-2 seconds faster.

As a result, blog optimization is very important. And good web hosting does help too.

Well done Vibrant, Google AdSense, ContextWeb and BlogAds. All of them hit record high on December. Once again, Vibrant is the big boss. It is really the king of in-text ads. I published Infolinks and Kontera ads previously. They could not even come near to Google AdSense earning, not to mention overtake it like Vibrant did.

Internet income report for December 2010

Vibrant – US$ 976.25 (RM 2945.15)
Google AdSense – US$ 901.01 (RM 2718.16)
ContextWeb – US$ 540.10 (RM 1629.37)
BlogAds – US$ 146.46 (RM 441.84)
Nuffnang – US$ 78.99 (RM 238.31)

Grand Total: US$ 2642.81 (RM 7972.83)

1 USD == 3.0168 RM. Err… USD is getting weaker each day. Look like this dropping trend will continue on year 2011. Hopefully, increased blogs’ traffic can cover currency conversion loss.

By the way, this is my last Internet income report. Thanks to those who follow these reports. Hopefully, it encourages you to continue blogging. I did a proof of concept myself. Online blogging really can bring revenue to you. It replaces my 8 to 5 daily job. You can do the same too.

Keep it up… ;)

Have you started to use Google AdSense new interface? If you don’t, it’s time to do so. There is lot of goodies there to explore. Just discovered ad types’ performance report there. And turned out that Google is telling the truth all the while ~ publishing text & image / rich media ads are better then text ads only.

Note – Page revenue per thousand impressions (RPM) is calculated by dividing your estimated earnings by the number of page views you received, then multiplying by 1000.

Based on the data above, clearly that text is the lowest performance ad type. As expected, the highest is rich media ad type, follow by animated image ad type then image ad type. Surprisingly, flash ad type does not perform well here.

As a conclusion, do publish both text and image / rich media ad types.

November 2010 was great ~ a record high on monthly earning. And Vibrant Media was the big boss this round. Vibrant, Google AdSense and ContextWeb hit record high again too. Well done to them. Of course, increased blogs’ traffic helped to generate more income too. As I said, focus on quality of the articles, people will come and re-visit your sites again…

Internet income report for November 2010

Vibrant – US$ 699.91 (RM 2140.67)
Google AdSense – US$ 571.02 (RM 1746.46)
ContextWeb – US$ 417.81 (RM 1277.87)
Nuffnang – US$ 108.78 (RM 332.72)
BlogAds – US$ 91.00 (RM 278.32)

Grand Total: US$ 1888.52 (RM 5776.04)

Yeah… USD 1888 ~ Chinese love number 8 == rich and prosperity. But 1 USD == 3.0585 RM. US Dollar currency rate is decreasing fast lately. Therefore, Ringgit Malaysia is getting stronger which turn into less earning for me. Nuffnang is the only income source from Malaysia. And it contributed 5.76% of total income only. This means that almost 95% of my income is from US. So strong USD currency is very important to me. How about you?

Is your blog loading speed fast?

19 Dec

Based on Google Webmaster Tool ~ Site performance, my blog ~ JayceOoi.com takes 13.5 seconds to load (updated on Dec 17, 2010). And it is slower than 98% of sites. This is not a good sign because site speed is one of the factor in Google search ranking algorithms. So you will rank lower if your page speed is slow. But the question is how much?

I took 2 web pages to test ~ LiewCF.com (CloudFlare Review: Speed Up and Protect Your Blog) and JayceOoi.com (Download darkstone SuperRAM FroYo Android ROM for HTC HD2). For your information, LiewCF.com is using CloudFlare which has Globally-distributed network (CDN) while JayceOoi.com is hosted at HostMonster with WordPress Super Cache plugin only.

Based on the video above, CloudFlare does not seem to help much in improving blog loading speed. Maybe due to many advertisements and other add-ons. How is your blog loading speed? Check it out with the help of WebPagetest.
