I noticed the other day that I was getting some referral traffic from a German website. I visited the site and while I couldn’t read the post (I should have done that semester abroad at Bucerius) I was able to get the general idea. It was a list of 17 sites that share their online income. I was pleased to see that I came in seventh in the list.
Here are the 6 that earned more than me.
SmartPassiveIncome.com – $20,683.09.
This is one of my favorite blogs and the only one on the list I was familiar with. I have been following this blog since it was new. I can remember when he had a goal of 100 subscribers and now he has over 10,000. This is a great site for learning about making online. I need to start implementing more of what I have learned.
Shoutmeloud.com – $3880
Blogtotravel.com – $3227
Deneilmerret.com – $1942
Passiveonlineincomeblog.com – $1159.38
Looking at the earnings reports of all the sites above me was informative. All of them but one made a significant portion of their income from selling a product or service. The one that didn’t made most of its money from affiliate sales. That might be an indication that relying on advertising for most of my income isn’t the best way to go. I’m going to work on developing a product and increasing my affiliate income before the end of the year.
