• HART-Empire Earnings for 2007 (August) Released

    September 1st, 2007HARTHmmmm Things, Quickies, Statistics, WooHoo

    * I’m keeping track of my HART-Empire Earnings for 2007 Online ..

    Here is the link: HART-Empire Network Earnings Spreadsheet Document

    It seems that “three times is a charm” and, like June 2007 and July 2007 … August 2007 was another transitional month for me, and the HART-Empire Network. First, I was away on vacation from August 3 to August 20 .. but, I did have my trusty little laptop with me and access to the internet with my EVDO access (it’s a PC card you plug in and like a cell phone number with high speed internet data stream attached). And secondly, as I referred back in my July 2007 earnings post .. I desperately needed to upgrade my new Virtual Private Server into a full-blown Dedicated Server on August 1, 2007.

    The thing with schedule upgrades is that it’s quite frustrating when schedules are not followed. My VPS account didn’t get upgraded until August 9th, 2007 .. and then we had to wait for the name servers to kick in for the move and transfer. When the smoke cleared, it seems that my host inadvertently forgot the BIGGEST site of mine (PetLvr) and the name servers had kicked in! It took until August 11th and into August 12th when everything was finally transferred properly. However, by August 15th it was evident that the standard RAM added to the dedicated server (1 GIG) was not enough and there were still glitches in the running of my network. I upgraded to 2 GIG RAM and everything seem to have been working fine since August 15th (knock on wood). If I had to, I will upgrade to 4GIG RAM and after that .. probably split this network up and shake things up a bit more!

    As for the August 2007 earnings … here they are below. The switchover to the dedicated server and the extra week lost in my PetLvr account definitely shows in the Google Adsense earnings – as, I did NOT hit the $100 payout for the month of August 2007.

    The earnings are on an “Accrual” basis, where I’m documenting what I’ve earned, but monies will usually come in the following month, or (if ever) when I reach the minimum threshold for release of my earnings for payment. The expenditures are on a “Cash” basis, as I pay something related to my online earnings, I just load up the spreadsheet and modify it.

    Summary of Gross Earnings 2007

    * January 2007 – $344.61
    * February 2007 – $372.37
    * March 2007 – $492.41
    * April 2007 – $491.85
    * May 2007 – $620.99
    * June 2007 – $632.47
    * July 2007 – $672.66
    * August 2007 – $701.72

    ** Year-To-Date Gross Earnings (Jan-Aug/2007) – $4,329.08
    * Average (YTD) $17.82 per day or, $541.14 per month


    Despite my difficulties and third monthly slowdown .. it was nice to see an increase in revenues – even though it was slight. But, cash outflows were back to normal. In August, 2007 .. while I was on vacation .. I decided to try some Private Label Rights (PLR) content for some of my sites around the network .. in addition to the free Ezine articles that I use or attempting to hire any writers. There are some pros and some cons associated with using PLR content, and right now from where I sit .. the pros outweighs the cons.

    * By the way .. for those interested in what my dedicated server finally costs me .. it will now cost $263 USD per month .. $179 USD per month hosteing by SingleHop Brand (or midPhase). Because I’m not computer savvy, I opted for the general management package of $69 USD per month to have a “just in case something does happen, don’t look at me” policy .. plus an extra $15 for the extra 1 GIG RAM Memory. Believe me – I am quite aware of the ratio of hosting costs to my earnings are, and (as one person commented to me … ) HART’s out of control!

    Well .. It’s September 2007 now – and everywhere you go … the back-to-school stuff is starting to slow down and I already see Halloween merchandise at the stores. Pretty soon .. it will be XMAS 2007! Are you ready? I hope HART-Empire-Network.com will be ready .. working .. and able. For September .. I am trying to get a new network wide template in place, and actively being with content and blogging on some of my obscure little domains that I have .. and, also signing more sites up to TLA and Linkworth than I have at the moment (less than 25% is setup). I will be reviewing some of the things that I do have that is not working and seeing if I can’t do something interesting for the XMAS season. For instance – it appears that I apparently have $87.00 or so in my Cafepress accounts … which, I forgot I even had!

    Take care
