Start of the fourth quarter

The year 2008 is slowly coming to an end, just three more months to go! The fourth quarter is usually the best in terms of ad dollars for most sites and I hope revenue will start picking up soon.

Earlier today I’ve compiled the numbers of the revenue my business generated in September and it’s not looking too good. Last month’s income was about 5 percent lower than September 2007 – that doesn’t look that bad but unfortunately a relatively large chunk of the September income were one-time deals. Without these extras the revenue would have been 35 percent lower than a year ago.

The amount of traffic I receive is still pretty much the same as a year ago, it seems the advertising money is drying up due to the slowing global economy. Especially Google AdSense and Chitika are generating a lot less money than a year ago.
