Superstar Bloggers Making Fortunes OnlineToday I decided to research how much my favorite blogs are earning every month and I wasn’t surprised to see some of them make over $100,000 per month.
These are blogs and success stories that have inspired me to become a blogger. These Superstar bloggers continue to inspire me to this day – and they have kept me motivated to not give up whenever it got tough, especially in the early days.
I hope this inspires you. If you think it’s time to start your own successful blog, then you absolutely must check out my post on how I create websites.
1) To give you some idea of the potential available – top blogging network, Weblogs, Inc. is believed to earn about $30 million a month revenue from 13 million unique visitors.
2) And it is not just about making money monthly it is also about building a BUSINESS that can be sold, such as 22 year old Johns Wu did when he sold his blog for $15 Million.
Check out the TOP EARNING BLOGS list below. I have already interviewed a number of these Superstar bloggers but hope to interview a lot more of them over the coming months – so watch out for that.Some of the website’s featured in this top list are only estimates and are not all 100% correct just a indication of how well they are doing regarding making money from their blog. If you would like to be featured in this list or know of any blogger’s that should, please comment below!

How They Make Money From BloggingThere are over a dozen methods these top blogger’s are using to monetize their blog, different techniques for each niche. Some niche’s are easier to promote products to, some have high paying keywords and some are easy to drive millions of visitors every month! Below is a run down on some of the techniques used.
By far the most popular advertising method so far in 2017. Website owners love this because they know they are guaranteed the money, other techniques such as affiliate marketing can go up and down a lot depending on what you promote.
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! As long as you can predict your impressions which is usually east to do, you know how much you will earn.
Selling on commission depending on your niche can be a huge earner and is by far my biggest earner. You promote great products and then get great commissions.
Pay Per Click
By far the easiest way to earn money online from a website or blog is from Google Adsense and being paid per click. Can be very lucrative if done right!
How We Make Money BloggingWe have spoken a lot about how we monetize our blogs and make money online.
On IncomeDiary, we don’t sell any advertising or have any advertising banners. I feel like it limits how much you can make.
Say you sold an advert for $1000. You now know you are guaranteed to make $1000 this month, but, you also know you are going to only make $1000 from this advertising space.
When it comes to making money from blogging, we focus on two techniques.
Technique 1: Affiliate MarketingSelling other peoples products and get a commission every time we make a sale.
Technique 2: Selling Our Own ProductsCreating and selling our own eBooks and software. For example, we sell an eBook on getting more traffic and we have a software product that lets you create high converting popups.
We go into a lot more detail about these two monetization methods in this post about monetizing your blog.
