How the Most Highly Visited Blogs Earn Money
Another insightful article from Problogger showing how the medium is rapidly becoming monetised. Darren Rowse has reviewed the top 30 blogs and analysed their income streams. See article for details of top 30. Only one blog had no advertising or affiliate programs (it did have a donation button though).
- The most popular Income Stream was BlogAds - 23 of the top 30 have them.
- The next most popular income streams were donation buttons and Amazon links (mainly to books).
- Also popular were AdBrite text ads.
- Only 8 of the blogs used Adsense.
Full credit to Darren Rowse for his hardwork in digging this info up.
