Hello and welcome to the next 87Studios income report. It's gonna be short this month, but with positive vibrations.
October was quite great month. I decided to start a new section where we'll be writing about Ghost. To celebrate it's launch we had a giveaway last month. And I'm pretty amazed how easy it was to install Ghost and make changes. But it's not a place to discuss it. Besides that, I still have a lot of problems with free time, but it should change in December. We'll see 🙂
What is also important, we finally decided with Sourav to still use 87studios.net domain instead of wp87.net. We have also a new logo for 87studios, but it's hard to decide between the new and the old one. What do you think?
All right, it's time for numbers.
Traffic and Metrics
150 visits on average day - good enough for me. I was expecting lower traffic like in previous months, but got positively surprised. Check out the charts from Google Analytics.

I decided to remove income details.
October was the first month that I had to spend extra money for this website.
- DigitalOcean VPS: $5,00
- Logo Redesign: $5 - I love Fiverr
Overview and goals for next month:
As I told last month, changing server location (that's only my guess) brought traffic back. Or maybe it was the little SEO work done last month? I'm really not sure which one of those two did that, but it's good that something helped.
At the end I'd like to say THANK YOU to Devesh from WPKube for his big help with our giveaway.
I hope you have enjoyed this month’s report. If so, I encourage you to check out the income reports of my friends:
