The Highest Earning Websites and Blogs...

Ever wonder how much money internet companies actually make? Curious about whether it's possible to really make a living being a blogger?

Well, Michael from Income Diary has compiled the following lists of top-earning websites and blogs. Some of it's rather predictable (like Google earning zillions of dollars), while much more is genuinely surprising (like how far down Facebook is on the list). Also, most of you have probably never even heard of some of these income giants, particularly on the blogging side. And FYI, because I know you're all curious, The Nerfherder unfortunately fell just short of making the cut :-)

Rob this looks fishy.
What about the drudge?
he reports 017,632,779 clicks in the past 24 hours.

http://www.clickfornick.com/ makes 3900 a month... have you looked at his website? Seriously?

as for your page, i am doing my part :)

I agree. It's amazing how some spammy, poorly designed websites with even worse content are generating that kind of money.

As to Drudge and others that receive millions of page hits, remember that eyeballs do not necessarily translate into revenue. Drudge may have a huge audience, but maybe not a viable business model.

Marketing is still equally, if not more, important than the quality of content. And these lists help bear that out.

This is definitely eye opening. Geez-o-Petes some of these sites look like they don't get more traffic then my 3 combined. I've been blogging for about 4 years, and finally I have the right mixture of everything (subject matter, ad placement, and good content) to sart drawing in the dough. Good Luck to everybody here - use this as inspiration!!

I have just found your blog article about Highest Earning Sites whilst I was looking for more information to add to my blog about poker. You've got a great blog going here. It's always good to have more information about how they got that kind of earning? I've just started my own site about Creare Applicazioni iPhone, Software iPhone, Sviluppare applicazioni iPhone, and Creare applicazioni iPhone if you would like to take a look.
Keep up your good work mate.
