Estimating what the Big bloggers earn from Blogads

Posted By Darren Rowse 26th of January 2005 Advertising

Right Wing News has done some estimates on what they think some of the bigger blogs are making from Blogads on a weekly basis. The estimates are rough and they admit they are probably over estimates as Blogads do take 20% in commissions and it doesn’t take into consideration advertisers buying long ads (which are usually discounted) and it wouldn’t take into consideration the free ads that some bloggers use. On the flip side of course, these numbers are conservative in their overall earnings as many of them use other advertising also such as Adsense, affiliates, private ads etc.

Having made all those disclaimers this is an interesting analysis. Here are the top 10 on this list of estimates of Blogads weekly earnings (check here for their complete list):



Daily Kos:$6800

Talking Points Memo: $2900

Instapundit: $2125

Eschaton: $2000

Andrew Sullivan: $2400

Hugh Hewitt: $1500

Political Animal: $1430

The Smirking Chimp: $1350

Wonkette: $1150

Political Wire: $1100
