How Much A Blogger Can Earn: Can I Make A Living By Blogging


I believe this is the most important and frequent question that comes to every budding blogger’s mind, that how much I can earn from my blog and what should I do to make a sustainable income.

So let me answer this interesting question and the answer is “It depends on“, yes earnings depends on many factors like:
1. Type of Blogging and Blog.
2. The niche of your blog and traffic.
3. How a blogger has monetized his blog.
4. The popularity of blog.
5. The quality of content.
6. The design of blog.

Let us go in detail, about all these factors that contribute to a bloggers earnings.

1. Type of Blogging and Blog

In my previous post I have clearly differentiated Types of Blogging and Blog,  so here I am going to give a rough average estimate on how much such blogs make money.

  • Niche Blogs – 1000 – 5000$ per month
  • Professional Blog – 5000-20000$per month
  • Freelance Blog – 100$ – 500$ per month

2. Niche of Blog And Traffic

3. How A Blogger Has Monetized The Blog

This is also an equally important factor that decides the earnings of a blogger. As there are many ways to monetize a blog, some ways are very specific to a particular niche. For example banner ads or text ads suitable for blogs with lots of text contents, whereas for a photo blog banner ads are the only choice, similarly a business blog which has a very well educated audience should be monetized with affiliate links, not with text ads or banner ads. Similarly, an entertainment blog can be monetized with many advertisements.

4. Popularity Of Blog

If you are wondering, how blog popularity can increase it’s earnings then let me clear this, if a blog is popular in any particular niche then advertisers approach these blogs for direct advertisement and pays huge bucks for just one month of promotion. Yes, really through direct advertising one can earn from 100$ to 10,000$ or even more, and this all depends on how popular a blog is.

5. Quality Of Content And Design Of Blog

Well these are not so big factor actually, but it does make an impact in creating a brand value which in turn makes a blog popular. Quality content keeps up the traffic and good design of blog increases it’s brand value.
