Average Income for a Top 50,000 Blog

A 2006 University of Texas, Chitika study came out with an estimate of $500 million advertisement or total income for the top 50,000 blogs. But the in the details it was shown that top 15% blogs account for 90% of the income and remaining 85% account for 10% of the income. This mean $50 million is made by 42,500 blogs. This gives an average for the 42,500 blogs as $1176.47. This seems to be a reasonable estimate. Earning $100 per month through blogs or online articles will put a person at the  top 50,000 blog level.

If the blog is in top 7500 blogs, the total income estimate is $450 million and the average income per blog will be $60,000 per annum or $5000 per month.

There is an alternative way to check this estimate. To get $100 per month, a blog must have 100,000 page views per month. 50,000 blogs having 100,000 page views will give 5,000,000,000 page views. This is equal to 5 billion page views per month and this is equal to what Blogger alone is getting presently. The total page views per blogosphere is estimated as 15 billion page views. Hence, estimating that top 50,000 blogs are contributing 5 billion page views is reasonable. A blogger earning $100 per month can consider himself to be in the top 50,000. But certainly $1 cpm which we assumed in this argument can be increased by bloggers by focusing on better monetization.

Vijaya Dashami - 2016 - Festival of Success - Festival of Breaking Barriers - Narayana Rao

Vijaya Dashami festival is a festival of success. It is a festival of great success. There is a tradition for the top people in the society to review publicly their successes in the last year and then come out with programmes for the coming year. The festival is associate with the tradition of "Seemollanghan". This can be interpreted in number of ways. While kings may interpret as extending their area of rule, farmers may interpret it as acquiring new land. The industrialists and businessmen can see it as expansion of their business. It is breaking barriers in any field by every individual.

What is special about myself in the last year (2015-16)?

In July 2016, I came out with a list of principles of industrial engineering. The principles are based on Taylor's principles of scientific management. Even though the subject, industrial engineering is 100 years old, a set of principles were not declared so far.

I also had a distinction in the year in the field of publication, The lecture that I gave in Thane on the topic - Deendayal's Ekatma Manav Darshan versus Capitalism were appreciated and it was published in the book "Rashtra Drashta - Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya."  The book has articles and interviews with Shri Mohanji Bhagawat, Shri Bhayyaji Joshi, Shri Devendra Phadanvis, Chief Minister of Maharshtra and other leaders and thinkers. In the lecture, I advocated that M.P.s of constituencies have to prepare investment plans for their constituencies and send them to Central Government some time before budgets are made. This is equivalent to budget memoraundum by the M.P.s. Various suggestions made by M.P.s to promote investment in their constituency can be evaluated and incorporated by the Finance Minister in the budget. This will help in developing decentralization of planning.

The third that I have to specially mention is the partial fasting that I did in this year's Navratri. I would like to continue it for two more months in an effort to lose weight.

Blogger Making $1000 per Month on 165 visitors per Day

The blogger claimed that he made $1000 a month from affiliate income. He wrote:

 I was able to increase my overall website traffic by 55%, particularly search engine traffic.

In the last 12 months the blog has managed to attract a cool 61,073 sessions (previous year 23,676), and 96,179 page views (previous year 41,267).

On average Magnet4Blogging has been getting 165 visits per day.

Gross Total Affiliate Marketing Income – $6,497.88

Blog Services

Website Design & Branding – $6,699.79

Gross Total Blog Income For 2016 (October to October – financial year) – $13,197.17

In July I earned $1,114.91 from affiliate marketing, which was truly awesome.

I also reached 1,000 email subscribers to this blog last month as well.

From my experience with blogging, it is a big  affiliate marketing  income. Bloggers have to know the ways of making money from affiliate marketing also apart from adsense. Adsense gives very little income as the income of magnet4blogging shows.
