Is Feb better than Jan?

    Unless you heavily target January type stuff, this is a crap month, we have pretty much concluded that. My traffic is just now fully back, eCPM is nowhere near, 30% less at least.

    Does anybody here know enough to tell me whether February is any better? Do advertising spends pick up again? Ignoring targetted content, just in general, will a diverse portfolio become more valuable again?

    I didn't really have enough content last year to judge, well, it was harder for me to judge because I published lots in December and January.

    Yes, in general Feb. will be better. Jan. is too soon after all the holiday shopping and being broke.

    Also in general, over all niche sales continue to pick up all the rest of the year until once again they hit a high over the holidays.

    People are so predictable. Again this is overall with all general niches. People who have specific niche target hubs and sites will do better or worst.

    people are just receiving their credit card bills for money spent in Dec. I think a lot depends on your targeted audience.

    I'm sure the pick up will be slow with some big ticket items, but you never know!

        lol...I didn't respond in formalised English. Yes I think February will pick up in comparison to January,  as most peoples target audiences will be at home and clicking compared to being on holidays smile

    I sure hope it will get better otherwise, I checked my Jan. and Feb. 2010 earnings and Feb. earnings was only 75% of my January earnings, hope that won't be the case this year sad.
