    Hey guys,

    Thanks for taking the time to review my post.

    a little bit of background.

    i have a sport(team) fan page on Facebook with over 16k fans. The amount of fans might not be a lot but i reach/interaction on the page is better than most pages with 100k or more. I avg about 200% reach and the highest over 500k reach.

    Anyways, i finally decided to start my own website and direct some traffic to the website. i have some website building experiences from past project but little amount of SEO experiences.

    I posted my first direct LINK to my new website this morning on my Facebook page. i was worried about the lack of reach due to the outside link post vs Facebook photo/videos. To my surprise, likes were coming in very fast, 100...200..300..and reach was well over 20k after just an hour, so much traffic was directed to my website and my website crashed. I called my host and upgraded to a professional plan(which was somehow cheaper) with my website being down for 3 hours, my final reach out of 10 mins ago was
    74,388 with over 1800 likes/comments and 838shares and 6300 post links.

    anyhow, i have attached the result from my google absence to the post.

    my earning was $16.28 with 149 clicks and page RPM of $2.30 and impression RPM of $1.11

    question, is this is good result based on the number of the pages views and impressions?

    please keep in mind, 90% of traffic are US based, mostly in california.

    I have about 3-4 Adsense ads on the page and no other ads.

    is this model a sustainable model to earn monthly income?

    Any recommendations to increase my clicks or RPM?

    thank you again for your time and attention! Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 7.34.21 PM.png Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 7.33.57 PM.jpg
