I noticed my visitors had risen today and yesterday on the osCommerce Templates site. Google and MSN have both finally indexed my web site and have been sending a few visitors in my direction. It's only indexed one page deep from the front page but at least it's a start.
And as an extra plus my adsense income for the day has risen quite a bit today compared to the past few days. After my major mistake with 4 pages the income had dropped slightly but now it's up higher than the usual daily average, so I'm quite happy with that.
Work has eased off a little. All of my clients are happy, satisfied that things are running according to plan. I seem to have managed to get 3 recruitment sites to redesign, one is for the company who I contract for, the other 2 have just come through recommendations. However it's great from one point of view as the foundations of the site such as the CMS are pretty much the same so I can just write up the code for one site and reuse it on the others with only very slight alterations needed. Dave's now quit his full time job to help me out due to the workload I have. He's already half completed a CSS layout for one site in a matter of hours, the rest will be finished tomorrow apparently! He seems to be settling into working from home at ease, I just have to push him occassionally to actually do some work. It's very easy to waste half a day faffing about on the web – this I know from experience, but right now I'm still very busy and there are plenty of things to do, which is all good.
