Proven Ways To Make Money At
Home Start Making Money
a lot of people have asked me
about how much I earn from this
blog and what kind of traffic do
I get. The frequency of such
exponentially following the
ban of Indian blogs, which
in a way, helped in raising blog
awareness in India.
Maybe, their interest in my web income and site stats stems from the fact that I quit my regular day job with a software company to become a full time blogger.
Before I discuss my figures and stats, let me share an interesting related story published today on Washington Post that talks about a few websites making a fortune with AdSense:
- Andrew Leyden of PodcastDirectory.com receives nearly a million hits and makes around $30,000 to $40,000.
- Freeweblayouts.net owners make $100,000 a month from a site that provides readymade web design templates for MySpace.com
- SeatGuru sites gets 700,000 visitors a month and makes about $10,000 to $20,000 a month from AdSense alone.
OK, back to my numbers. I am not
very comfortable revealing the
exact earnings data in public
but still I will try to share
Digital Inspiration blog gets around 1.25 million hits per month with a majority originating from Google followed by direct traffic (like bookmarks, rss feeds, etc)
- The maximum site traffic comes from four countries - US, India, UK and Australia (in the same order)
- A majority of monthly income is from Adsense but I do make some extra money from Chitika, Feedburner Ads, Direct Advertising and Blog Consulting [via PayPal].
- Firefox referrals have also been a good source of revenue though I did not have much success with Picasa software. I never tried Adsense or Adwords referrals.
- While it may be tough for me
to write down the actual Adsense
earnings data here, you can make
some good guesses from the
WashingtonPost story mentioned

- Google Blogger Team added Digital Inspiration to Blogs of Note on July 25, 2006.
