February Report

Hello everyone! I am happy you made it to this post. In the next few paragraphs I will go through almost everything that happened in the month of February at Top Food Facts. And it was a quick one… wow! It’s gone very fast.

Inspired by Pinch Of Yum’s website and their reports, we decided to do the same, so we can have a closer look at our statistics. What the report consists of is – traffic, recap of the published posts and explanations of what we are actually doing to run the site.

The big news this month is that we actually made some money, thanks to our blog only. We marked a profit of $120!!! Amazing, isn’t it? All the income comes from ads that are running on our pages, and some sponsored content.

What does sponsored content mean? I’ll give you one example, so you can understand the idea. In our case, it was an article, that we posted, and it actually does an advertisement of a product. The content of the post is completely connected to our topic, which is food, and you will never know, which one is it. So, put it this way, we advertise a product of a company, and the company pays us to do that – we are happy and they are happy. The reason why we got chosen to do it, was the amount of traffic that we have, and especially the one from last month. Our page views are steadily going upwards, with some exceptions, and this makes big difference now.

These are the sweetest $120 that we have ever earned! It makes us very happy, to see that what we do starts being recognized.

We are improving in social media as well. If you want to follow any of our social media accounts here are some links – Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Let’s move on to the post summary.

In the category Fact of The Week, this month, we discussed hazelnuts, green beans and Gouda cheese.

The infographics that we showed you were about – When Are Vegetables in Season?, The Top 8 Bad Eating Habits, Herb Guide to Cooking and 25 Three-Ingredient Smoothie Recipes.

In our favorite category – Instafoodie of The Week, we show you people who have lots of followers in Instagram, because of their amazing photos of great food. We contact all of them personally, and we interview them by eMail. Of course we get many denials, but we still manage to find a great foodie every week. Let me show you now, the Instafoodies of the month of February.

 Now, that we have discussed all of our posts, we can move on to the numbers. Let’s talk a little bit about traffic. With the total of 12,019 Page Views, for the short month of February, we are completely happy!

We are currently trying to upload our recipes to Foodgwaker.com, and get more traffic, but we still get denied. It’s a website, that features the best pictures of food in the web. The way it works is, you upload a photo, and the people who actually work in the site’s busy offices, give you precious feedback and they decide if the picture is good enough to be published. If you get published, you can get good traffic on your recipe post. We are still not published, but hey – we are still improving our photography, and we have a lot to learn. It’s getting better, and we will never give up FoodGawker!!! 🙂

You can see the top 9 countries that had the most people coming on our pages in this picture.

And now, let’s put all of this behind, because another month has started… the month of March. In this month, I am going to do some travelling. I am going back home, which will be amazing! I will still post regularly, and follow my website schedule. I will just have a couple of weeks off from my Head Chef’s position in London. This will give me the opportunity to post Bulgarian traditional recipes, cooked at home, and beautiful landscapes from my birthplace.

Thank you very much for being with us! We have an amazing month ahead, so stay tuned and never miss a post.

Bye bye Top Food Facts visitors, I hope to see you often on our pages!

XOXO
