Earn Money Online

Successful Blogs Earning Money Online

For today’s post, I wanted to look at some of the most successful and profitable blogs that are currently online.

For many people that are just starting blogging, it is hard to know how much you can potentially earn. In the initial stages of setting up a blog, it can be tough to keep motivated to keep going when you’re not making much money, but given time and lots of effort a blog can take off  in a big way. The best examples that you can look at are the blogs that are at the top. It certainly inspired me to learn just how much money some of the top blogs make on a daily basis.

The following list of 50 blogs are considered the best in the business. I often get inspired by these blogs, urging me on to put in the work to make my own site the best that it can be. I hope that this inspires you as well!

[* - Matt Cutts has stated (see comments section) that he doesn't actually earn any money directly via his blog.  Instead he utilizes Twitter to promote various products and merchandise to his many followers.  Still a viable blog to feature on this list though, as it shows that other methods can be used to make money online.]

This list is only an estimate of the true worth of these sites. If anything, these are probably UNDERestimates, as many of these sites have many streams of income. Check out our ‘30 Ways Your Website Can Earn You Money‘ to learn of other ways in which you can monetize your website.
