Making money is one of the primary aims of a blogger. Imagine a blogger that doesn’t make money, that’s a blogger soon frustrated. Thinking of how much money a blogger makes per month? In this article, I will show you how much a blogger makes.

How much do Bloggers Make?

All bloggers do not earn equally, the amount a blogger makes is dependent on 3 things:

  1. Niche
  2. Traffic
  3. Income sources used.


The niche of a blog determines the amount of money a blogger can earn. For example, two blogs (health and movies) with an equal amount of traffic and an ad network (like Google Adsense). A blog on health niche will earn better than a blog on movies. This is because the CPC of a  health blog is higher than that of a movie.

Below are blog niches with high CPC:

  1. Health
  2. Fitness
  3. Food
  4. Tech
  5. Beauty
  6. Finance

This is another determinant of how much a blogger can make and it is the most important.  Traffic is money. Without traffic to your blog, you can never make money no matter the niche or ad network (source of income) you use.

Also, the country of your traffic is also important. For example, traffic from tier 1 countries is far better than that from tier 2 and 3 countries.

Examples of Tier 1 countries:

  1. Australia.
  2. Austria.
  3. Belgium
  4. Canada
  5. Denmark
  6. Finland
  7. France
  8. Germany and so on

Source of Income

There are many sources of income for bloggers. The earnings from these sources differ. Examples of these sources are

  1. Affiliate marketing
  2. Google Adsense- Google Adsense pays better than pop-up ads (Adsterra and Propellerads) with the same amount of traffic or even less. The only disadvantage of using it is your account can be banned anytime and they don’t accept any sites.
  3. Pop-up ads- There are many ads network that offers pop ads but I prefer Adsterra and Propellerads due to their high CPM.
  4. Sponsored Post and so on.
