Just interesting does anyone here run a successful blog.

What is your blog about.
What is your blog daily/monthly traffic.
What is your blog income.

What are your thoughts: how much can a average person expect from a blog.

Trying to make some comparisons between niche, visitors and income.

No need to use real urls, exact niche - just some approximations.

          Hahahaha .

          I run a blog, but it's not your typical "engagement" blog. It's for my list really. I want to give them good content via email, and also good content on my blog. Whatever they want to use to view the info is cool with me. I just make it good for them. And i'm not keen on revealing my income stats. Sorry if that agitates you.

    Successful is relative and based on the goals of the individual person, but as for your other questions, here's my advice. First off, you should find a profitable niche that you like and already know a little something about. It just makes things easier when you're first starting out. Since you're in the niche, you're more likely to know more about the products and will be more easily able to connect to your audience.

    Secondly, every niche is different. Heck, even products in the same niche that are promoted by the same marketer will have different conversion rates. You can't really base your expectations for success on what other people do in this industry. In the same way that niches and products differ from one another, so do people. You just have to kind of learn and implement and repeat the cycle.

      my query goal is meeting successful people in blogging field.

      Agree, "successful" is relative, I'd like to see numbers to make my own conclusions.

          sure they will, I'm trying to make sure there are people around with blogs over 3K-5K visitors a day. It will be like a impulse for me to keep working on my blog.

    I am going to make a blog about all the tools that are available online for marketing. I've been reading alot and it seems like there's alot more people trying to make money with different techniques than people who talk ABOUT the techniques. So that's going to be my first idea. Wish me luck!

      I tried this a few years back. IMO a blog is not a good way to make money online as it takes so much of your time.

      It makes me laugh these guys who run blogs about 'passive income', because running a blog is definitely not passive! It's not writing the content which takes the time and causes the frustration, it's sourcing images, formatting articles, finding affiliate links etc - this is the mundane side to it which takes up the time.

      My blog was full of articles about things which had been featured on TV. For example, an article title may have been: 'Watch worn by Jack Bauer on 24', or 'Book featured on Oprah'. I still maintain that this is a great idea for a site, and something people want - the site ranked really well and got lots of traffic, because people searched for these things so they could buy them. Actually finding the product itself was a challenge - if it was an item of clothing like a dress, I had to scour fashion websites and twitter for clues about it.

      The problems:

      - the articles had to be done as soon as the programme aired. Ideally before. The traffic spiked straight after the episode and then bombed.

      - the earnings. It was not passive income, the earnings were tied to how much work I did and it became tiresome. It was very seasonal - the site made $3-400 per month through the year, based on roughly 1-2hrs work per day on the site. In the months before Christmas it would earn $1000 per month.


      I ran it for 2 years part time before I gave up. I still think it's a great idea for a site though, if someone could find a way to get the articles ready before the programmes go out.

      The earnings were partly from Adsense, mainly from Amazon affiliate links.

        I'm not trying to make a passive income, my purpose is to make my own business and not work for pennies.
        And blog itself IMO should be a part of a bigger business, as blog is just a magnet for traffic while you also should have something to offer to your traffic. Adsence is a last opportunity when you have no other ways to earn money.

      My data is going to do nothing for the op, I don't know what he/she is going to do with their blog. They may use spun content or poorly spun content, they may steal content off the web. Again my data will not help at all, too many factors.


      You have got to be kidding!

      The pot calling the kettle black. Your sig file leads to your WSO and if I may say, it's the worst WSO in my opinion that I've seen to date.

      Your WSO has no content what soever, no salespage, no copy, only 3 links with pricing that go to shopping carts.

      What's the big secret, practice what you preach.

    Yes - I actually have nine of them.

    Like so many other affiliate marketers here who aren't in IM/MMO-related niches, I don't disclose my niches, so I can't describe their subjects.

    Being an affiliate marketer, of course the primary purpose of all my blogs is "to collect the visitors' email addresses", for all the reasons explained here, so their success, to me, is of course measured in terms of how well I can monetize the subscribers.

    My blogs, in themselves, don't have income. I've been making a full-time living from them for over 5 years, now, but it would be a big mistake to think of it in terms of "income from blogs". Blogging isn't in itself a monetized activity. The income comes from the marketing processes to which I use the blog to attract eventual customers. Key concept, there. If I tried to look at the blogs themselves as income-sources, I wouldn't be earning much.

    I do have some things like little affiliate-link banners on my blogs, but of course all the people who click on those and buy anything are people who have got to those links by following something I've sent them in an email, having subscribed to my list at an earlier visit to the site.

    Originally Posted by brux View Post

    Almost nothing.

    I'd guess that 99% of people with blogs earn nothing from them at all. And that perhaps even 95% of people who are trying to earn something from them, don't. The success-rate in internet marketing is terribly low, whoever's figures you believe. That's just the way it is.

    A re-think will help you, there. The relationships between those things are largely tenuous, non-linear and non-quantitative.

        (I do get floods of SEO traffic too, because very high rankings for a variety of keywords of medium-ish competitiveness happen to be a small side-benefit of article marketing, correctly done, but I'm an affiliate marketer, so search-engine traffic isn't any use to me, by comparison: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post8659398 ).

          I have one noob question about the way you act with your articles.
          Where exactly do you find people who own a big big relevant website who are willing to republish you same article on his webpage (not original) and providing you with a link?

          And also, I suppose know the answer to this question, but, doesn't publishing your article in other websites that are more relevant than yours hurt the way google sees the originality of your blog?


          I'm sorry, it's been about 5 years since I stopped reading and learning about SEO and IM, and I'm a bit rusty.

            Why a "big big" relevant website? I don't care how big their websites are. I care a little how much traffic they have (and would never assume that "big big websites" will have more than others), but I can't find that out anyway, so there's nothing I can do about it.

            No, not at all. That's just a big myth, originally stemming from the confusion between "duplicate content" and "syndicated content".

            (The acquisition and gradual accumulation of initial indexations of content subsequently syndicated elsewhere actually helps your SEO - not that I care, either way, myself, what Google thinks.)

            Not at all ... and don't be so modest: your knowledge will actually be fairly up-to-date, compared with that of some of the people selling various purportedly SEO-related services here, many of whom apparently stopped reading about it all much longer ago than that.

            (By the way, I strongly suspect that in your niche, article marketing may actually be rather good for you, because you're perhaps going to be hoping to attract and deal with rather more literate, slightly better educated traffic demographics than the "average marketer", I think? So you have that going for you, probably ).

      My Friend, looks like I defined my questions wrong.

      I do understand - blog is just a tool to attract traffic. And the idea of starting a blog should be combined with a clear vision how to monetize it when the time comes (google adsense is the last chance to review as a source of income).

      Question to you personally - is it possible to achieve a number of 3-5K visitors daily and more on a blog? And one more: say your blog is ranged in top 3 position in google by a certain keyword. Google stated 100000 searches monthly for this keyword. How many of these will visit your blog?

      (why I'm asking all questions above - I need a moral support not to leave my blog now and numbers will keep me pushing my job)

      There are a number of very sensible reasons that business owners here don't choose to reveal the details of their businesses.

      I, for one, had hundreds of articles ripped off by a fellow Warrior several years ago. He had no sense of "stealing" and no understanding that just because something was posted online, it was not fair game for reposting by someone else.

      I choose not to reveal almost all the details of my several web sites. My income, my traffic, my expenses, even my monetization strategies are my business and not anyone else's if I don't care to share them.

      If that doesn't connect with you, I'm sorry. Please respect the privacy of others even if you don't care about your own business privacy.

        okay, I'm not a tax officer to look into your pocket, but you could describe all in general lines, no personalizations.

        That's what fellow warrior marketers IMO are here for - to help.

      Because to those, who think they are running a "successful" blog and wouldn't disclose their names, do understand that if your blog is successful, it already comes up in the search engine rankings and social communities, and people, especially in your niche, already knows about them.

      If you don't want to divulge your specific success tactics, that's still understandable but not divulging the names or links just don't plain connect with me.

      Regarding the OP's question, well, I run a blog in the IM and copywriting niche, COPY-e-WRITING - Sales Copywriting | Internet Marketing | Brand Advertising, and no, it's not that successful in true sense of the term, since I hardly work on its online presence. But when it comes to revenue generation, it works perfectly in tandem to my cold calls and cold emails, bringing me enough dough at the end of the day.

      Still, I have been in the blogging and IM business for long, and I can offer you an advice.

      Build brand, relationships and graphical presentations.

      That's your key to success.

      If you look around, you will know the empirical truth in my statement.
      I remember I disclosed one of my blogs Here years ago . I got a flood of Warrior traffic who decided it would be cute to Click on some of my AdSense and get me Smart Priced

      No thanks.

    This is way too open ended. Successful blogs are found in thousands of niches. Really, it comes down to the content. If you don't provide quality content, you won't get the social aspect or the traffic you want. The income is secondary and will come if you provide great content.

    Just takes time. I have a fishing blog I started a few month ago (backyard trout fishing) and google has me indexed for over 105 keywords.

    I'm on page one for multiple keyword like "trout fishing secrets" "fishing in backyard" I mean I could go on and on here...

    I'm really not at the point of monetizing it yet. I have a adsense banner that generates a few clicks. I should take the adsense off and add a free report!

    My goal is to build the traffic up, monetize the traffic then third after a couple of more months list the site on fippa for sale. If I can do that which I hopefully will by my set timeline I figure I could get 5 figures for it easily.

    Only those who are interested in writing should start a blog. Outsourcing, though convenient at times should be considered only as a second option. Ideas for article comes naturally only to a person with writing skills. Yes, others can outsource even ideas also but the visitors will not find the blog worth visiting again.

    Well I own a music production blog, I accept some donations, people are happy for the content, I am happy to have it. I will consider this successful when I ll reach $1000 per month but I am happy with this blog so I guess is this successful too?

    Lots of good info.

    I have had several unsuccessful blogs. But I just like to give entertainment. I like when people comment "thanks for the laugh", or "I needed that", etc... Thats why I do it.

    Do you ever feel like a race car hauling dirt? You're getting the job done, but that's not what you were built to do.

    Well successful is a relative term. But I think I do ok with mine.

    1) I do IM product reviews, real reviews, not just hype everything
    2) Monthly traffic is in the mid tens of thousands.
    3) Monthly income is low 5 figures.

    As for how much the average person can expect from a blog, Id say the average person can expect to earn about $0 from a blog. Why? Because the average person wont work their tails off to build a blog up to the point where its making money.
