How Top Bloggers Earn Money

July 17, 2007 by  

BusinessWeek has written an interesting article about how the top bloggers are making money. 14 bloggers are featured in the article; these include ShoeMoney, Darren Rowse and Perez Hilton.

Another well known blogger featured in the article is Michael Arrington of TechCrunch who’s reportedly making $200,000 a month from his blog.

A few of the bloggers are not necessarily what I called well-known, and many do not belong to the Technorati 100 club. There are a few that are making around $5000 monthly.

I guess the article is not about the most popular bloggers out there but how bloggers in general are making good money from their blog.

While the article mentioned BlogAds a couple of time making it the most popular advertising program used by the bloggers, there’s only one mention about Google AdSense.

I am sure a few of the bloggers like Darren Rowse is making more than the estimated annual income of $100,000.

Thanks for the link. Seems to me the main key to pulling people into your web site is — surprise — content.

The numbers in this article a bit weird. For example it says that gets 6 million page views per month and he earns only 8K$. While John Chow reported 350K page views with 12K$ earnings. And there are more examples….

I agree with a lot of the other sites and the comments I’ve read so far..which tend to say many of the sites on that list aren’t blogs at all. Perez Hilton is not a blog, it’s owned by AOL and has a team of writers and press people. TechCrunch is certainly no blog, it’s more of a headline aggregator. It’s almost a ‘scraper’, it just formats the content in ways that are useful.

It depends on your perception I guess, but a blog is usually one person writing about something passionately is their own style. It’s not a big company, a team or writers, or something mainstream media can just “tap in to…”
