How Top Bloggers Earn Money

Posted on 17th July, 2007

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.

  • 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…”

    The numbers in this article a bit weird. For example it says that overheardinnewyork.com 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….
