Blogger Revenue and Blog Juice

I got the chance to read Old Vic's analysis on blogger revenues and their Alexa ranking inspired by Paula Mooney's blog post about "New List of Blogger, Webmaster, Domainer, Affiliate Marketer (and any other kind of dot com mogul) Salaries as of June 2007".

I got included in the said list after I shared how I make money from blogs and websites.

I have a problem relying on Alexa as its ranking is based on usage of the Alexa toolbar. I have seen bloggers changing their url, using a redirect to Alexa, just to increase their ranking. I was forced to do that in my Ituloy AngSulong blog just to had it registered in MyBlogLog (as it can't process my blog address for it).

I still put a lot of weight in Technorati rankings. Although the recent viral tag campaigns and those who create blog templates or tools may have shoot up their respective Technorati rank, but does not mean that it translates to readers.

Based on Alexa and Technorati, it is amusing that this blog has a good ranking compared to my e-commerce and Internet history sites whose traffic is 2 to 3 times more than this blog.

With that experience, most of the weight put on ad placement fees computation and decisions I made is still 80% heavily influenced by Google PageRank. Ideally, a site with a Google PageRank 4 should pursue having a Blog Juice rating of no less than 4.x too.

Let's take Old Vic's analysis further by looking at Paula Mooney's "New List of Blogger, Webmaster, Domainer, Affiliate Marketer (and any other kind of dot com mogul) Salaries as of June 2007" blog juice where the rating is based on Bloglines subscription, Alexa ranking, Technorati ranking, and inbound links as per Technorati.

Blogs that make more than US$4000 a month are marked with **.

Conclusion: (let me think about it further but I encourage you to share your thoughts)

Comments

  1. Janette, thanks for the comment and the link.
    Excellent stuff, it shows the big earners are up the top again and I need to improve my Technorati rating ! But grownupgeek has a very low Technorati rating of 1 yet still earns $4,000 a month.
    Also, there are people that I have added to the list that have not declared how much they earn so presumably some of thoese will be on $4,000 a month or more too.
    For me it is interesting as it gives some sort of mathemtical goal to aim for, which is easier to understand. Regards, Vic

    but it takes a lot of friggen hard work to pull in 2,000 in 12 days I KNOW I'M OVER STRESSED hahaha

  5. Wowie, grownupgeek has a PR of 1 and pulls in $4K? Impressive!

    Wow, that's a persuasive argument for me to start thinking about monetizing my blog, hehehe.

  6. @the old vic - perhaps we should ask grownupgeek how does he generate income online.

    @jon smartwealthyrich - that's great! Perhaps you should also get yourself listed in Paula's list.

    @5xmom.com - read your blog and cheers to the link love!

    @the blog world - I just used the Blog Juice tool.

    @fruityoaty - with the following you have, I think you should. :)
