Hey I just started this film site a while back - you can click on my name and see- - and this summer I plan to dedicate more time to making the site bigger and more interesting, but how often would you say a blogger has to blog to earn some decent revenue.
Of course, reviewing films is nothing like 'cat's who like Hitler' but still, I think it's profound to review only films I liked. There are film sites on line, but most kiss butt to what is popular, afraid to state their own opinion. You could go to any film review web site and see the same exact films discussed because of who advertises there etc. I'm not that big on Chapstick, but obviously, I'd like my site to rock like yours!
Working from home can be easy after you understand the main concepts. When I first started I struggled but then I figured things out and make a great income online & love helping my team do the same thing. I do remember how hard it can be though, anyone need tips or advice can find what they need on IncomeDiary.com
Those are some outrageous incomes, but I am not gonna dog on these guys, quiet the contrary!! I am gonna study them!!
Good information regarding blogging on net, but the best source is ad-sense and Google ban any time without any prior notice.
Insane the list of Top 30 blogs!!!
I would be happy with $300 / month from my blog :P
I always like your posts Mike and I hope you do update this one real soon. I'm looking forward to that.
I would like to tell you that you don't need to listed people who earning less than 10k$ per month. Because a lot of people in this world can do that. Then it's nothing.
This method is really popular for the website’s that receive a huge amount of traffic, advertisers pay you for impressions rather than sales or clicks! Check out Adtegrity for CPM Advertising.
These true confessions of bloggers with top earning blogs are truly inspirational. Earning such amount just by the expression of an interesting idea is amazing.
From the given top earning blog list, the most common source of main income is through banner advertisement, hence, it is just simply the display along the bottom of the web page as a part of any sponsorship.
Therefore, if not the best, one of the good source of generating money online is through advertising maybe because advertising is a form of communication intended to persuade an audience.
I thought John Chow was the biggest earner and I was wrong, 400k a month? holy thats like a professional athlete salary.
wow this list is so amazing. how i wish i could earn even just as much as the last list. hmmm
Coming from a novice blogger this site is truely awesome! Thanks for the insight
Very interesting. We can see the power of blogging . It is a good way to make money online very easily.
ohh ! great blogger , how to has big income monthly like them .
Interesting list, but it appears that except for a few magazine like blogs... most of the bloggers making money these days, seem to make it, by telling others how to make money blogging...no?
Wow all of them are making good money from online, I can't believe that Darren Rowse stands on #15. Anyway, I'll try my best to climb to the top 30. :)
Incredible list! I really can't believe how much money is HuffingtonPost making! Oh actually taking into consideration the amount of content out there...
I just want to say Thank you Michael,
your blog inspires me to keep going.
The list you created is very interesting.
What interested me most is the different ways
these entrepreneurs are making money online.
I have dedicated my blog to helping spread
the different ways of making money online.
Once again Michael, Thank you, you inspire me.
Great site. Good intentions. Like it. Will be back to read more soon.
Keep up the good work.
You are awesome! Thanks for the great content. Although I have a blog, it is not fully optimized (just yet!) I thank you for the great value that you have provided for us all! I plan on using your advice.
I have to agree with Tony to a certain extent because to benefit from advertising on your blog you would need to be seen as an authority site and to do this you need lots and lots of traffic.... right?
"You have to realize though, you need MASSIVE, MASSIVE traffic to make good money from advertising on your blog. I’m NOT saying you can’t do it. But many experienced marketers are saying affiliate marketing and creating your own product is much more lucrative."
Yes affiliate marketing and creating your own products are the way to go but think about this Tony...Even if you do go down the path of affiliate marketing/product creation you still need MASSIVE, MASSIVE traffic and you would have to include a blog as part of you traffic funnel anyway if you were a total beginner. Personally out of the two 'affiliate marketing' is the way to go...
Wow. Over 2M per month. Now I can see possibilities.
Thanks for that listing.
I think the key here is traffic. What ever type of website you have you can earn good money if you have traffic. That's what attrack advertisers PERIOD.
Thanks for sharing that buddy!
Wow, this was a great post. I didn't know that some of these blogs made that much. Thanks Michael for this info.
Wow, How I wish I could earn that too... Nice blog.... There are lots offers that can make money online....
hi michael, I think this is the second time I read this post but, it is just me or is it a duplicate list on the Gothamist blog?
Those earning shown is really getting me motivated to keep pushing forward internet marketing and learn and twists and make money
I have been Blogging for over a year now
and have found it very hard to make any
Money @ all.Maybe it is what I Blog about.
I will keep Doing what I like to do & hopefully
Start seeing a change in the near Future.
Thanks. This is the best information on marketing that I have seen in months of searching.
Thanks for all the valuable info and also the extra motivation. Blogging can get frustrating sometimes and it is nice to here that others also struggle with the same things I do. I will most definitely be reading more and learning as I blog in 2010.
Building a business requires dedication and alot of times a monetary investment but not always if one is patient. Alot of people can not afford to outsource and must do all the marketing on their own which takes alot of dedication and work. Thanks for this very inspirational post.
WOW! I must say that's a huge amount of money. I better learn more about this. Thanks for posting. If you get the chance, feel free to visit me back on m site for money making tips online.
Those numbers are very very impressive, if I may say so. Blogging used to be all about putting your thoughts on pen and paper. Now, bloggers make a living out of it. Good job, people!
amazing list !
but Netklix don't include my country :(
Having steps on how to make online blogging is a good way to make money faster.
Nice post buddy!
I wonder if the new search algorithm is affecting these guys. Nonetheless, wow I would say well done on the traffic and the amount of monthly income.
True...Sell a lot of ebooks with contents they say as new.Haha....To be john chow u have to think like him...The first step is not to enrich some fool who write a useless ebook and sell.Some sell it for higher price and say they help others earn....Hypocrites....Go problogger net and other standard sites and you will get all info for free...
wow that's heck a lot of money they are making ... may be i could reach atleast half the last one
Another wonderful list nicely written ...great share!
Wow seems like the best way to monetise is through advertising but as we all know that only works really well when you can get a ton of traffic to your sites.
It works well with free sites that target a wide audience such as techcrunch.
I totally enjoyed this post, thanks for sharing Michael.
Affiliate sales though is my personal favourite and i noticed its yours too!
Take care man
I'm a novice blogger and this is a lot of money for me. Thanks Michael for sharing this with us.
i admire John Chow because of his innovative ways to gain traffic both from whitehat and greyhat methods.".;
Great information! Thank you for all the information. I'm just now getting started in this.
How do you use Buy Sell Ads.com.. I signed up already and How do i begin to sell ads.. ? I click on Sell Ads and it takes me back to the home page when i click register! Do i have to Purchase Ads before I can sell them? I can’t find any tutorials anywhere and rest asure that i will keep looking! Thanks for everything Michael, you’ve opened my eyes and now I begun blogging and am New At it!
That's such a great info for all web user and can see what these sites are dong to make money and can get some idea for their projects
I also maintain several blogs to earn money online. sometimes it is hard to keep your daily earnings to stable levels..*,;
Affiliate marketing has been one of the best ways to make a lot of money. But depends for some Google adsense works better.
Guess its relative!!
its a pretty good list, these sites are having heavy traffic so thats why the are the top earners on the net, thanks incomediary like your all posts..
With numerous overheads for some of these companies, not sure if some of these gross figures, give a true and accurate picture of their net income.
Really awesome income, wow. Thanks for the hope :)
Great list.. I have been researching blogs that enumerate Top Earning Blogs and Tech Crunch is always at the top! So nice.. Very motivational, thanks for this!
I cant believe how much money is out there for bloggers.
Hello all... After some time tweeeting and a few years in the web industry I have decided to start my own blog... Anyway, I found this post a really cooool read thank you!
Would be great if you all visited my new Global Warming blog and posted me your thoughts/feedback on the subject.
Many thanks :D
Hi, this list is very inspiring and makes me want to work harder still to create blogs which others will want to read. Sadly I haven't had one reader to my blogs although it's early days.
I have a few ideas for blogs and to be honest just some extra income would be great, but to make it my main source of income would be the dream.
Checkout one of my blogs which is about driving and reducing casualties on the roads. It has a few posts put on by me over the past week or so.
Thanks and happy blogging
It is amazing how much money these blogs generate. Are you going to update the numbers for this past year? I noticed that Mashable has increased its traffic well over 30 percent. I wonder what they are generating today? Any suggestions on our blog
Wow! That's amazing.
I think these people are lucky to earn this much money
Great list. i have been trying t contact michael about the done for you blogging service but i had no reply and this was weeks ago. does anyone know if this service is still availible?
Great post - some of those figures are unbelievable! It shows that there IS a market out there for everyone.
Bunch of sell outs! - Kidding - That is quite a difference between first rank and tenth. How do you find out this information?
Wow…top site is earning huge amount money with blog..i didn’t know before that its possible to earn so much…
Nice list inspiring to :)
Wow - and most of the from Ad banners and PPC (paid for ad banners) - now what does that tell you? High traffic + ad banners = you guessed it!
this is really really inspiring. :) How about you Michael? How much are you earning per month? :D
Actually I have been searching for this kind of article for months, It's really really amazing and helpful
Love this list. I've never seen one put together nicely like this. I've only heard rumors before. This is great.
Wow, VERY impressive. Thanks for the post! It's very motivating and insightful!
Excellent list and a great inspiration - thanks
what does it means
powered by wordpress. designed by woothemes
That's an impressive list. Never imagined you can make $200,000 from a single blog :)
200k a month! Talk about bank. TechCrunch is most definitely a beast of a blog. It's currently ranked 375th in the world for traffic (by Alexa). That's quite a feat in itself.
Blimey i knew blogging was big but never realised just how big for the top earners. I think you are right about procrastination as i have lost count of the number of people i have suggested start a blog when they complain they are financially strapped as a possible means of improving their income and the few that do normally give up after a few weeks as they don't see instant rewards. Blogging for sure can be very lucrative but is also very very time consuming at first
How old is the data you have included here, i guess this is great info and so encouraging for bloggers arround the world. also your newsletter is impressive.
great going Michael.
A nice set of stats you have collected there, thanks a ton !
Very inspiring list, anything for web designers? :)
Great Blog and nice post, it's inspire me to start a blog now and start earning as I can.
I dosen't surprise me to see the earnings from your blogs, because although my earnings haven't been as high as yours I have seen a massive jump in my income since getting involved in blogging. My blog ninjatactics.biz was so easy to set up and all I have to do is update it on a fairly regular basis, simple. If you want to make money online get a Blog.
That looks so great,I will use this method and write on my blog,thank you very much
wow that has really put me into blogging now .. my first target it to get visitors from across the globe ..
Dear Michael, Many thanks for your information, I find your blog from google reader, your blog is very nice and more information, good luck and have a nice day Michael
For a novice blogger like me this is a great source for inspiration.
wow Saad Hamid
we r proud of u !
Crazy, so much money from blogging. :)
I didn't know that blogs can make that much money. Thanks for sharing this list.
what about The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond?
Very inspiring, I must say. But what I found oddly interesting was the fact that the 'UK Millionaire' Rob Benwell who you claim to make 90,000 a month isn't mentioned anywhere on your list. Nor is the Yaro Starak guy who's supposed to make 10k-35k.
If these guys are just spooks and not worthy of being on your list, why are you even bothering to recommend their work under the heading ' Ready to take Blogging Seriously'?
I've just started on the road to blogging.
Your site design and content seems to be better than some of the blogs on the list.
How long have you been blogging for?
Just subscribed to your newsletter to get so tips to get started on monetizing by blog.
Hello!!! this is something i was looking till i started blogging a year ago. 'How much people are earning from there blogs'. Well there was no place until this I saw the exact amounts they earn.
Once again a wonderful post by the young man
Oh my god, I never seen this kind of proof,wake me up for a big surprises that really make money on Internet.This proof is one of the biggest gift proof.haha
Sure one day,I will in top 100 haha,Great job michael.
Hey Michael, what an eye opener ! I hadn't the slightest clue, about the phenomenal incomes possible through blogs. I am quite excited having read this and am already half way through "Blogging to the Bank 3.0" as I write this comment.
Could you name those that inspired you, when you started out ?
This a great posting I will definately putting these tips to the test .
my site is 9 days old and I have signed up for Michaels 7 day course, any Tips for my website would be most grateful, so please visit and leave comments or contact me.
Thanks for your very motivating post.
Ah!!! at last I found what I was looking for. Somtimes it takes so much effort to find even tiny useful piece of information.
Nice post. Thanks
It would be a great enhancement to this post to also show the page views/visitors they achieve to get these levels of income.
Awesome List Michael ....
Thank You for including the "Main Income" info !
Wow what an impressive lists of blogs that make thousands of dollars per month.
It's interesting to see that advertising banners are the top income sources for bloggers.
It only means there are lots of money to be made in banner ads in contrast to what most gurus says "Banner ads is dead"
(So Michael, do you accept banner ads on ID (incomediary)?)
One more quick note that leaves me some hope that this list is not fully loaded.
The mommy blogger at @ dooce.com was estimated to pull in ~40k per month on her blog.
-(see: Wall Street Journal article at http://online.wsj.com/article/...
So why isnt she listed? Is it because she doesnt directly state her income? orrrrrr....
Another example of someone who i would imagine to pull in more than $2200 / month on his blog would be Seth Godin; He's not listed. Maybe I am a fool to assume...you know what they say about assuming.
God hope there are 100's of people not directly stating their blog income.
Michael, help me understand the logic?
So i looked at this list and got saddened! Maybe someones perspective will enlighten me and un-depress me.... ; )
Ok, If this top 30 list is somewhat accurate and #30 is making ~$2,200/ month (26.4k/year) that really aint paying the bills.
I guess with all the chatter about affiliate marketing, web analytics, ppc, etc these days, i imagined a higher # at position 30.
I imagine Liam Goodwin is a master guru (is there such a think?) at online money making through the aforementioned methods.
If $2200 monthly is about right, then i would imagine a second job is necessary for the vast majority of people who didnt cut the list.
I guess i just thought there more money in the kettle?
That all said, i am definitely not complaining about a few extra bones here and there.
Kudos to everybody on the list and everybody close!
Now tell me what i am missing!
WOW! I would have never guessed you could make so much from blogging. I've just begun to enter the make money blogging scene and at first I was skeptical, but these numbers have provided me with a sense of hope. Thanks for some great insight!
Thanks, Michael. Great list. I will use some of those techniques.
Are you planning to continue the list in the future?
You know, its great...! Advertising on banner still top but I like Google Adsense than other..
great post! Gives me great insight!
Surprisingly those numbers seem kind of low? Pure profit should be higher. Not bad for blogs though.
Is Yaro Starak the owner of Entreprenuers-Journey included in the 30+? This is a great list of online entrepreneurs making great money online with their blogs. I wish I could follow their path. Though, I' m very happy even if I will only earn $1,000 a month in my blog monetization.
Really, this post bring a new spirit for a newbie in bloghospere like me... imagine you having six figures income will make you full of energy to blogging again and again... that's your wake up call.. thanks for the post.
Wow..so cool..I hope my blogs will be included on that list. :-)
A good blog post can be easily identified by the trained eye. When bloggers are more interested in posting quality content and not in the paycheck associated with it, this is when good posts are made.
Blogging should be for fun, if not you’ll quit. If you’re trying to earn some money then spreading it our over multiple streams is a great idea. All of the successful Bloggers have multiple income streams generated by Blogging.
If you have a store and only sell hammers, you’ll go out of business fast. Thanks for the post.
I wish my name was there too
what is their major source of income adsense or advertising banners?
yeah he's right, there is a lot of potential on blogs. It's a matter of the person whos running it.
well, how much do u earn?
i agree. blogging is really a great a way to make some money. it is also one of the most easy ways in internet marketing. you're article is nice especially for those who are just starting in this area of living. keep it up. God bless.
Nice site and article. I've met Mike Arrington and he's a very nice guy. I can't attest to the earnings from techcrunch, but the writing is top-notch.
Good luck to all who are here in search of greater income - it can be a long journey. Just watch out for the Internet Marketing guys, they'll suck money from your bank account, "like a vaccuum cleaner on steroids" (to quote one such site).
Nice blog....I guess they post their earnings somewhere? Anyway...your post gives me hope for the future. Thanks for writing it.
Cool post. I actually thought some of these would be doing a lot more. I gues that is motivating, means that there is more for us!!!
That's a really cool post. It's nice to see how much some of the top bloggers are making online.
It just proves that anyone can make it to the top.
I also like the theme of this blog, really nice feel and spacing.
Amazing list..uf OMG I cant believe techcrunch earn that much :|..
Wow, I can only aspire to earn the amount of money that these top guys make!
Hey guys, having just started blogging to make some cash, i`d be more than happy to be anywhere on that list.
This is really an inspiring list! I realize it's not easy to make all the money that these people have, but it really does get you motivated to get out there on the Internet and start some blogging!
Keep up all the inspiring work!
Big numbers ! I have never expected that It's costing this
I'll never understand how this perez hilton guy got so rich... amazing.
Really its nice site ..i always come here and see the list but still i am confuse what i should do and how i should start. I also want to do work like that ..but i am not getting clear picture in myself. God bless me ..and give me good path ..
Thanks Michael! Great post!
I now need some traffic to my site ;-)
WOW... This is really something cool. Thanks for sharing it here.
I am new at blogging. I've started a very niche blog on pasteurization, which is one of the things in life I consider myself an expert at, as it aligns with what I do for a living.
Every week new material comes across my desk. I have a rolodex of contacts that I would love to launch an e-mail campaign to over 1000 individuals in the industry, but just don't feel the site is "right" yet... and my only current form of income is adsense.
If anyone has any feedback for me on the site - layout, monetization opportunities, etc, I'd appreciate it.
Wish If I could just change my name to Michael Arrington and had all that fortune . :)
Fantastic post. I have been using affiliate links, advertising slots through BSA and Google Adsense for a while and am lucky if I make $5 in a month. Nice to know someone is making money, would be nice to figure out what I am doing wrong!
Wow that is a lot of money! I am now hopeful to earn that too.
Thanks for sharing!
What I'd be more interested in is the profit for each site, not just the income, as others have touched on above. After all, I think it's our colonial cousins who say "turnover is vanity, profit is sanity". If it costs $199,950 to get that $200,000 per month, it's not quite so impressive.
You havent mentioned about "YARO STARK",i guess he z among the ones mentioned above..:)
This blog list is amazing. They get so a lot of money per month by just blogging from day to day. It's great. Maybe we could do the same, guys?
Wow earning really shocking me. Superb post buddy and after read it i make my mind to try some hand on it. I will soon make my new blog and try for it to earn money..
Great blog and nice insight. I am amazed looking at the numbers and how blogs can be profitable
im new and im following micheals 7 day plan. im working on my site now and it will be ready for the public soon. hopefully we can make that list in the near future.
Blog monetization with targeted traffic is important to make money online from blog. Without targeted traffic, you won't make any money from blog. Fresh content is important to attract SEO and human traffic.
To your success,
Great to see TechCrunch as #1 on the list! I run isocket.com, a commission-free ad platform. TechCrunch moved their ad sales exclusively onto our service last month, leaving behind their old network, Federated Media.
We're currently in private Beta testing, with more of the top 20 sites on this list getting started with our service. If you're interested, be sure to sign up on our homepage at www.isocket.com and follow us on twitter @isocket!
Suprissing, one of them on the list is indonesian blog. Im indonesian, congrats congrats
At first glance I was impressed at the earnings until I took a second look and saw that it was MONTHLY. Wow. I had no idea a blogger could uld theoretically earn that much from PPC.
Great list, very encouraging. But it can't be the top 30, I "personally" know of blogs making a lot more than $2,200 per month.
And is the Huffington Post no longer considered a blog. Do bloggers now look at Arianna's site as an online newspaper?
Great post, great site Michael!
How do you use Buy Sell Ads.com.. I signed up already and How do i begin to sell ads.. ? I click on Sell Ads and it takes me back to the home page when i click register! Do i have to Purchase Ads before I can sell them? I can't find any tutorials anywhere and rest asure that i will keep looking! Thanks for everything Michael, you've opened my eyes and now I begun blogging and am New At it!
The question of how to best monitize internet resources has been an open one for all for a select few.Thanks to your insightful article, its coming one notch closer for eveyone! Looking forward to your future entries...
cool. I will visit all that website and learn something.
Crazy, so much money from blogging. :(
I'd be interested in knowing how long they've been blogging, how often do they blog, how many bloggers are on their team, number of monthly visitors.
That infomation would teach me something.
How can do that ?!, i'll try to develop my blog up to these numbers, I do not believe, imaginary numbers....wow ..., visit my blog, ( Arabic blog)........Good luck
wow, that's alot of money! great list of top bloggers - very impressive! :)
Great post! Blogging is the easiest way, perhaps to earn money :)
Looks like Advertising Banners is the most earning money in blog. Ideas... here i come..
Thanks Micheal for this listing.. This is really helpful for newbie blogger like me.
Very Impressive!! I'll spread the words for sure!
Can anyone please tell me what is the easiest opportunity for earn money from blog.
i don't understand i can earn in blog
Those are very impressive figures!
Have launched a blog earlier this year. Read your post on how to monetize. Jumped on over to Buy and Sell Ads, opened an account and then proceeded to add my site!!! OK.........I continued to submit but am waaaaaaaay away from 100K impressions a month! lol...
But then that gives me a number to aspire to.
Not sure how I found you ... oh I remember, a referral from a friend. Your blog is now on blog reading list!
Wishing you continued success!
I mean really study how it’s done and ask a lot of questions, there is no reason in the world you cannot make money on the internet as well.
cool blog you have here! Keep posting :)
And oh, i passed again ;-D Great list. I hope to have that level soon :-D Yea, cheers then :D
plz help me out how can i earn money online.
i am going to create a blog but ia m confused where to create a blog so that i can earn money........
Great post, Michael! :) I loved the way you added the details about each one there. ;] Keep it up then :)
Wow...top site is earning huge amount money with blog..i didn't know before that its possible to earn so much...
Nice list , but according to your list i'd be right around #15..................Better include me next time :D
That's a lot of money! Very interesting btw. =)
Hi Michael, thank you for this list. Huge amounts ONLY from ads, and count revenue for speeches, small jobs, publications and and and...
I am one of the bigger blogger in Germany and far away from these amounts, mostly because I am still asked "What is a blog?" So there is still hope for me, for us bloggers.
P.S.: I like Perez Hilton, he is successful and he just did it right. he is a fighter for human rights also, he does more then just publicity stunts.
Great list, Michael. All your lists that show all the people out there who make a living from their blog really inspire me. Great blog keep up the good work! :)
Great Good work......
u changed my view towards blogging .......
nice keep it up
But is it works in indian markets
wow. those blogs took a years to achieve that range of earning., pretty tough.
I think there a lot of bloggers that should be in this list: For one, our very own Carl Ocab should be in this list. he makes money thru paid advertising.
For adsense earners, I do think that there are a lot of silent type big adsense earners out there.
Why is it that Plentyoffish is not included? Or probably whateverlife.com?
thank you for this great item...I will make my blog now
Nice article mate, i like the way you discribe different earnigs ways in blogging.
HOho. i have many my friends earn more than that. Just they not tell anyone their top earning. 5k-10k its normal to them. But all of blogger really can make money from their blog. :)
Thanks for the interesting article.
I didn't find google adsense as main income. Is that Pay Per Click? but I didn't find Google Ads on the webs which have PPC as main income.
or can i assume that no Adsense blogs earn lot of money ? :)
Wow, a really great list, it amazes me (if these figures are even close to correct) how much money can be made by the sharing of information on a specific topic (blogging) and not really even selling a product. I'm trying my best and I've been getting the traffic, it just seems that I don't get many of my readers clicking on my ads, they seems to go off onto one of the many links I have to other sites. That's what I'm working on now, trying to get my visitors to (kiss) if you will.. my sponsor ads..
Wow..the Top 30's List make me impressive..Keep Blogging!
You are so far off when it comes to Techcrunch and Mashable it's not even funny.
Techcrunch made $200k a month 2 years ago..
You left me out... $5,400/month - affiliate sales/advertising.
Look at Mashable and their advertising plans. they charge up to $3000.00 per week per ad. You have to see what's bringing the big bucks on a blog site. Don't let numbers excite you until you do some background research on the site. There is usually a lot more behind those numbers than you are seeing.
Great Post.!! I was also thinking of making money through some or the other technique through my blog and guess I got the GREEN SIGNAL after reading your post. :) Keep up the good work and keep updating nice info..!
i'm very eager to earn lots of money, but i have no idea about online earnings.there is so many way like ppc, adsense,yahoo publishers etc. i also want to earn like 30 blogs which i see in this page. is there any one who help me to achieve my goal.
You've got a great blog here, and I love your post. Thanks, keep it up!
woow..i thought earning through blog only make you money worth thousand.but i never expect it's worth million..huhuhu..
wow, i didnt know they made such a big earning from ppc !
wow, this is really great information, it courage me to not giving up in this field,
Thanks so much dude!
This is good, I truly appreciate your efforts of finding this out and publishing it here, even though you say its not 100% accurate, but atleast we'll get an idea of what other are doing ... this is ture that if you do regular blogging and if you are dedicated towards your goal, you can be listed in the list above :) ...
thanks for findings,
Greetings all members,
I would just like to say hello and let you know that I'm happy to be a member - been a lurker long enough :)
Hope to contribute some and gain some knowledge along the way....
So, whose gonna get me up there at TechCrunch place?
- Its ok in the middle too, I can manage ! :D
Hi. I just interested as to how you obtain these values. Most websites do not share their earnings. I can see they are estimates but how did you obtain them? Thanks you
I was amazed by how much these guys are earning online. By the way, thanks for the advice that goes with your articles on how much they earn.
What an inspiration... good work!!!
HEY ALBERT I am not Michael but enjoy his sites but your question is in the comments. Then if you read on some others lend some additional info.
JUST READ A BIT UPWARDs ....
GOOD LIST Michael Dunlop
"Media and personally told by the bloggers, some may be doing more or less because every month is different but its more or less right "
I've noticed a huge gap between number 1 and number 30. What does that mean exactly? It means that there's lots of room for new bloggers to make money. Just give it time and the gap will be minimal.
Here is another blog which I am starting to love. Great work Michael. These tips are wonderful and very motivating.
Advertising seems to be something to consider in 2009. Great list by the way, very motivational.
Great list. That's crazy. I hope to somehow reach that level. I know there are many more people who don't display incomes who are making much more then that. I prefer to make a lot of money and not be very popular personally ;).
$200k? I don't even mind 500 bucks per month right now. This list really motivates me.
Hi. I was just interested as to how you obtain these values. Most sites do not share their earnings openly. I can see they are estimates but how did you obtain them? Thanks. And you should have a subscribe to comments feature because I never revisit a site to check out my comments, only if I get an email telling me :D
Cool list.. count me in after 6 months I'll be there.. joking! i think carl ocab pretty does well too and might rank there
Dooce reported around $40,000/month last year on TV interviews - http://www.jackhumphrey.com/fr...
Several of the above are actually low estimates - Problogger.net makes much more than $25k, for instance, if you count his job board, book, and related income resulting directly from the success of his blog.
@alex Those are gross figures, so their expenses have to come off the figures. For some that will just be their hosting costs. But for many of the big bloggers expenses will include staff wages, office charges etc. Pete Cashmore's Mashable is generating great revenue, but look at how many staff are employed there - so no, Pete isn't pocketing over $2M a year!
I would have thought Carl Ocab would have been on this list, or Grizzly
Blogging is a good side source of income!
Great list, Michael!
Michael, you might want to check out these 2 for stats & income:
ReadWriteWeb - Richard MacManus whose publication competes with Techcrunch
Geekzone.co.nz - Maricio Freitas (or similar spelling) who is another pioneer
Both live in NZ but have very strong international presence
These are just awesome to look at. I always have people ask me what the definitive way is to make money online, and really there isn't one. If you can provide a good service or product, or a way to solve a problem, that's where the goodness comes from! There's hundreds of thousands of people just like this that we don't know about who are all very successful people marketing and doing "online stuff!"
I knew there were some big earners out there but these guys are really kicking ass!
How did you get these numbers? Did you ask each site owner?

Great list Mike.. Really like the style of how you write.. very clear cut.. I am someone who gets very frustrated with clutter and even more frustrated with what you have previously referred to as 'information overload'. Every time I research something there always seems to be something else to read on it from another source etc. I am beginning to use your site as my 'core' site that answers alot of my questions particularly on blogging as I trust your information.
Incidentally these incomes are impressive.. What I would love to know next out of curiosity is whether this money is akin to an actual salary. i.e Does Michael Arrington actually earn 200k per month? I guess thats a difficult question to find the answer to..its like when you hear that Frank Lampard gets 100k a week playing for Chelsea.. I always want to know how much ACTUALLYgoes into his bank account! I love exact numbers!
Banner advertising seem to be more lucrative.
These web sites are also high traffic and useful content web sites...
This gives more hope too, that one can make money online.
These numbers are in American Dollars? :o
Another list nicely done and I like the way you added a description of each way to monetize your blog.
HI, Michael -
I appreciate the list (inspiring, as several others stated), but several of my friends in the fitness industry - Alwyn Cosgrove and Craig Ballantyne, just for starters - should be on your list, too, based upon the numbers you posted.
Even my own www.BabyBoomerFitnessAuthority... would squeeze in - near the bottom ;-). - Stephen
From what I understand, Craig earns his living from his training and not directly from blog monetization. I also know their is 1000s of other sites making a lot of money online but couldn't find any revenue numbers on the Internet. This list is just to show of those that do ;-)
Wow thats a lot of money! Very interesting Mike.
this is one of the most inspirering lists i have read in a long time. i did not know how much money was in the blogging business.
Hey Michael, nice and impressive list .. 200k per month, wow! That's crazy :-)
great post! Gives me great insight!!(and hope!)
I see that there's a huge trend in the advertising banners being in the top half of the list there. :)
200,000 a month that aint bad at all is it.
