How to Make Money Blogging Online: 44 Bloggers Share Their Income Reports


Income reports are a method used to tell other people on the internet how much money someone makes and how they make their money through "online world" methods. Income can be passive (like when an article posted years ago can constantly retain viewership because of it's timeless purpose creating money from ads) or it can be active where the method is short-lived or for the moment (sponsored posts, surveys, etc.). Many people develop these income posts to either give people hope and information for their own personal methods of making money or to simply drive traffic to their websites because a lot of people are curious about the ways in which a person can make money online.

I have did a bit of research and found a lot of bloggers that create these income reports and tell us the ways in which they have made their money. I will be focusing on income reports from the month of January in 2017. Within these examinations I am addressing the income made, how it was made, the traffic they receive to their blogs, as well as the topics of the websites. I am also providing my own thoughts within reviewing the information. I hope that the information proves to be beneficial to my readers as it was beneficial to me.

Thoughts about Traffic: It seems like a lot of bloggers give credit to Pinterest for bringing them in traffic, as well as signing up with Tailwind or Boardbooster. Ranking high in keywords on Google seems to be a great way of getting more traffic too.

Thoughts on how people make money online: Most bloggers use affiliates and it helps them make a decent amount of money. Also selling your own product whether it be an ebook, an online course, or even owning your own store is what makes a decent amount of bloggers a lot of money too regardless of a huge amount of traffic.

Who I hope to see more income reports from: I would like to see more bloggers and Youtube vloggers in the book, fashion, beauty, and app creator field because it would be very helpful to see the ways in which they make money as well.

  2. On the off chance that you are anticipating profiting on the Internet you will require an approach to advance what you offer. To begin with you will require your own cash making site. We should investigate how to make a cash making site so you can begin procuring cash as quickly as time permits. More Information
