Blog Income Report – January 2008

Setting The Tone for 2008

It’s a brand new month (and a brand new year) and that means it’s time for the monthly John Chow dot Com blog income report. Way back in September of 2006, I decided to do a little experiment to see if money can really be made by blogging. Before that time, John Chow dot Com was simply a personal blog and didnโ€™t make any money.

Starting with just Google AdSense, the blog made $352.94 in its first month as a monetized site and quickly grew from there. The blog made $25,040.36 last month.

January is one of the most important months because it sets the tone for the rest the year. It’s always better to start off on a high note than a low one. While traffic is normally higher in January, advertising rates are generally lower because the holiday shopping season is over. The result is usually a drop in income. However, I’m happy to report that not only did John Chow dot Com beat the December income, it set a new income record.

Total Blog Income for January 2008: $30,616.35

January 2008 will go down as the month the blog broke the $30,000 mark. It’s amazing to see that only a year ago, the blog income was “only” $3,440.66. Here’s the income break down.

Blog traffic for January was 280,788 page views from 147,278 unique visitors, according to Google Analytics. If you take the blog page views and divide it by the blog income, you get a site wide eCPM of $109.04. What this means is for every 1000 page views, John Chow dot Com made over $100, or 10 cents per view. How much would your blog be making if you made $100 for every 1000 page views?

Blog expenses for the month were $464.29 for contextual advertising and $25 for a private ad. Hosting for John Chow dot Com is sponsored by BlueFur Web Hosting. Use coupon code JohnChowRocks to get 15% off any BlueFur hosting packages.

The key to making money online is to drive a lot of traffic and then maximize the income from that traffic. Most bloggers donโ€™t do this. I can’t keep count on the number of blogs I’ve seen running Google AdSense and nothing else. If youโ€™ve been reading John Chow dot Com for even a short time, then you know that Google is not the only game in town. Never put your eggs in one basket. It’s a message I’ve been saying for over a year. Check out my recommended money makers to see what ad networks I used to produce my blog income.

I also recommend you download my free eBook, Make Money Online with John Chow dot Com. The book explains the methods I used to create content, drive traffic and make money. You can get it by signing up for my free newsletter at the top center of the page.

  1. Insane in the membrane…

    1. Erik Karey says:

      WOW, that’s pretty amazing. Great work john!

      1. achen says:

        I could have made 600 bucks if get the CPM rate. My blog’s traffic was really low and was not qualified to sign up for many ad network. I have run it for more than a year now. Sign! ๐Ÿ˜

        1. Will says:

          what ad networks require traffic before you can sign up?

          1. Not all of them require traffic although, if you want to make money with them I’d start driving traffic immediatley.

      2. Wayne Liew says:

        Yea, he is breaking the records month after month. I wonder what I will see for the next 12 months in such posts here. ๐Ÿ˜†

        1. I too am breaking my own record month after month. Somehow I don’t think that I can compare myself to Joh though! I went from $0.59 in November to $3.03 in December to over $24.00 in January. I only hope I can keep a pace like Mr. Chow. Very impressive John I will continue to take your advice!

          1. Hunny says:

            Like you, I am also not JOHN CHOW. I am also breaking my own records. But the fact is that at present I am using only Google Adsense to earn earn money online. My November months income was $0.58, for Dec 07, it was $4.18 and for Jan 08, it is $3.46 only. I did not work for a whole month in January but still I made $3.46, it amaed my. Anyway, best of luck for your online venture ๐Ÿ™‚

        2. I agree I can see the blog rising to aroundthe $40-50,000/month mark by the end of the year.

    2. Nice work again John. Can you buy me lunch? :mrgreen:

    3. Collin LaHay says:

      Excellent job John. Best of luck topping it next month.

    4. ROFL i love that expression and it suits just FINE to those numbers.

      What the hell will you be doing will all that cash John? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    5. Chong Choon says:

      Congrats mate!!! Maybe you could share with us your financial management skills ๐Ÿ˜†

    6. “Chow me the money”

      1. Lautaro says:

        You made me laugh XD

        Excellent John, if I made a third of that, I would be rich in Argentina ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Tech Reviews says:

    So, January 2009 will be $300000? ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    1. Alan Johnson says:

      Actually, I wouldn’t be all that surprised to see him pulling in $300k a month from TTZMedia in 2009, or who knows, he may find a generous buyer ๐Ÿ™‚

      Alan Johnson

    2. I doubt John will turn his blog from what his yearly earning are from it (reported in Entrepreneur Magazine) to monthly in the space of 12 month however, if you a targetting the $40-50,000/month that more realistic.

      However if you take John’s other online entities into consideration and look at the expected growth of the advertising industry by Jan 2009 he could possibly be close to that figure/month.

      1. Alan Johnson says:

        Unless you’re TC, it’s hard to expect such earnings form the blog in itself. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him raking in over $300k monthly from all of his online activities in 2008 however.

        Alan Johnson

  3. John, I both love and hate you. I’m not sure which…

    Great job though! It’s been amazing to watch this blog grow…

    1. Lol same here… I doubled my income from my blog last month and I’m still only 1/15th of the way to where John is at!

      1. yeah you doing pretty goood i read your blog all the time you should give yourself another year to get to johns level

      2. Neil Duckett says:

        2 Large is a great effort Ben, keep it going man.

        1. Thanks Neil, I’ve still got a few months to go for my goal!

      3. Terry Tay says:

        Hey Ben,
        I contributed to your last month’s income. I got your blogging experiment and I like it a lot. 1/15 way there is only the beginning. You probably double your income next month. You saw John Chow’s annual income report. It doubled, tripled like crazy.
        ~Terry

  4. This is truly Amazing John! – I hope to be doing this in a years time

    (I’m going off to cry now…)

  5. i will definitely download your ebook and sign up for your newsletter!

  6. Jack says:

    John, its only a little while till you get acquired by google. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Then it be- watch how google makes money.

  7. Cheapest Man says:

    Congrats on the great month.

    I signed up for the RSS feed, how do I get the eBook?

    Thanks!

    1. John Chow says:

      You need to sign up for the newsletter to get the ebook.

  8. Another month well done and a new record! Will update the graphs this weekend. Congrats!

  9. eSeduce.com says:

    Wow, John you are truly an inspiration for me. Some people only make this much in a year working full time!

  10. Mack Tight says:

    Congrats on breaking $30k a month! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  11. Michael Kwan says:

    Time to increase my pay, John?

    1. John Chow says:

      You now get two bowls of Pho instead of one.

      1. Michael Kwan says:

        What? No iced coffee? No spring roll?

        1. There are people happy with half a bowl of pho so be grateful for what you have :mrgreen:

        2. I love spring rolls and would gladly work for them.

    2. Moulinneuf says:

      “increase my pay”

      Are you sure you want that ? Seriously ?

      – How about :
      *Gift from a friend ( John ) : 4 new Snow tires.
      *Increased visibility/advertising here.
      *Your own Category and Box —————>>>
      Below “John chow dot com sponsors”
      You get Category “John Chow dot com contributors” or “John chow dot com slave” ๐Ÿ˜‰
      With your own Blog logo and Business Logo leading to your Blog and Business.
      * In the Link Category at the bottom be added as Top spot on Friends and familly.
      * John could use is clouth or money to get you a deal on a free Design upgrade on your blog to be making more money.
      *John could help you get new sponsors and be the first with a paid TTZ sponsoring logo.

      Little more pay = more taxes. More visibility and more help = lot more money before and after taxes.

      :mrgreen:

  12. JWRmedia says:

    Congratulations. Looks like you’re only going to continue to grow your blog in this new year.

  13. Chip says:

    Congratulations. I will be there at the top soon, just keep me a seat.

    1. Will says:

      it’s everybody’s wish to be here lol.

  14. Seopher says:

    Congratulations John, statistics like this put the doubters back in line. The reason we read this blog is *because* you generate that amount of money. It’s astonishing and you’re an inspiration.

    Just goes to show what you can do.

    1. I’m not sure what doubters you’re talking about. There’s no doubting that this blog makes a lot of money. The criticism I’ve leveled at John most often is not providing value often enough. Inspiration is great but there’s a lot of nuts and bolts stuff that would be much more valuable when the rubber meets the road.

  15. Congrats John. Your income ceiling just keeps going up and up.

    -Gyutae Park of Winning the Web

  16. very nice, very nice John… ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Cool John! I’m going to report over $3,000 this month in affiliate earnings only 1/10th what you are earning. I’m planning on catching you one day though.

  18. Tom says:

    Congrats John!

    I’ve been a reader for some time now and I can only expect your numbers to grow as the internet continues to grow daily!!

  19. Incredible! Your traffic actually decreased by over 30,000 visitors (from 12/07) and yet you still managed to make over $4000 more. Amazing stats and I can’t wait to see how this month goes for you.

    1. John Chow says:

      Actually, traffic was up from December.

      1. Oh, maybe I was thinking November. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

        You did have 180,000 one month recently though

  20. John,
    Do you have a long term goal that you would like to reach with your blog income and traffic stats?
    ~Debby

  21. I’ve been reading John Chow dot Com for awhile now and I’m astounded at how quickly you’ve been able to turn your blog into a cash machine!

    Content is king.

    Keep up the great work!

  22. Congrats John! I’m always amazed when I read your monthly income report.

    Keep up the good work,
    Hafiz Dhanani

  23. katie says:

    ๐Ÿ˜› Congrats. Your such a great inspiration to me and so many people that like to blog or are thinking of blogging!

    Have a wonderful day.

    ~Katie

  24. Matt Jones says:

    Congrats John, you continue to amaze!

  25. Youfoundjake says:

    John, once again, very impressive. How do you think Adsense would do with the amount of pageviews you have now?

    1. Seopher says:

      I think that’s a really good question actually.

    2. It would…definitively not earn enough no matter which spot he will need to replace for the G. Ads

    3. John Chow says:

      It would make about $750 to $1,000.

  26. Duckeldanny says:

    wow, respect for this income. I have earned 287 $ in January.
    View my Income Report http://www.duckeldanny.com/blog-income-report-january-2008/

    1. achen says:

      Wow that’s very nice income. Can you disclose your traffic number as well. I run my blog for a year now. I had 6000 pageview last month. With John’s cpm rate, I could have made 600 bucks. Anyone can offer me some tips to increase my cpm rate. That will be greate ๐Ÿ˜€

      http://www.siusic.com

  27. Setting that tones means you’ll make $360,000+ this year off this blog alone. Wow!

  28. rofl says:

    I love all the copy cat sites that think you can make money by posting your income every month ๐Ÿ˜†

    1. Not necessarily. A lot of MMO blogs do it to prove that they can make money online, and readers find it interesting. I know I do.

      1. Exactly, disclosing your monthly earnings is a natural step if you’re talking about making money online. It provides credibility. For example, the fact that I made over $2,000 from my six month old blog gives my site a credibility it wouldn’t have if I were only making $10 a month.

  29. Akmal Wardak says:

    great job on your earnings John…
    and i think i found a booboo on your post you have written “`Blog traffic for December was 280,788 page views from 147,278 unique visitors”

    i think it should be January not December…

  30. CatherineL says:

    John – these are excellent results again. But I was thinking – you do many excellent reviews of restaurants right? And they aren’t plain vanilla reviews – you even include several pics of the food.

    So can’t you get paid reviews or sponsorship from them to increase your earnings further? They may not pay as well as some sources, but they could be like the icing on the cake.

  31. Aibek says:

    Maaaaan…..Evey month is a surprise. Congrats John!

    1. Well, I wouldn’t call it a surprise. We all know John makes tons of money online. ๐Ÿ˜›

  32. john says:

    Isn’t January one of the best months since many advertisers renew for quarterly and yearly contracts?

  33. Steev Yu says:

    Congrat, John. More money in your pocket ya? ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  34. Will says:

    Very impressive john! You could easily live off of this income.

  35. Wow, what an amazing achievement! You have came so far, it is unbelievable. Right now I am giving advertisements away for free and I could not imagine right now making more then $15k off of advertisements. Great Job Mate.

  36. BonoRiau says:

    Great job John from bonoriau….bonoriau will double up my work and marketing to double up bonoriau online income this year 2008

  37. How come Kontera has stayed consistent at $1k a month for several months now?

    Tell them to pay you more ๐Ÿ™‚

    You may as well try and get an increase if you’ve stayed at the $1k mark for so long.

    1. Yeah I think they give him a flat rate deal; I’d probably ask for a raise too. ๐Ÿ˜›

  38. alzack says:

    Great job. Well done!

  39. Sadie says:

    Hey John! Saw your smiling face in Entrepreneur Magazine – great picture!

    Anyways, you are definitely my new favorite person as I’ve been stalking your website all night and am on page 25 of your e-book.

    Thanks for your inspiration and guidance. This green girl is looking forward to learning lots from your tech-savvy ass ๐Ÿ˜†

    Hooray for John Chow!

    Much love – Sadie from allnaturalme.com

  40. crab says:

    wa, you are so famous now.

  41. Brady Ware says:

    John you are the man and inspiring. I have just finished reading your ebook and you can expect to see something from me in the future. I hope one day you will be commenting one of my blogs. Thanks again for all of your information. Die all John Chow haters.

  42. Melvin says:

    Wow…. The key has always been the private ads…. You nailed it right by saying drive the traffic first…

    Anyway is your ebook at the top updated? DO you update it?

  43. jayson says:

    John,

    thanks for the tips and congrats on January!

  44. Asela says:

    Awesome! Keep it up John. Hope to see those numbers double in the coming months…

  45. Hey John,
    Your doing great man….I think you can do better though. I would like to see those numbers double this time next year. Take up the challenge? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Rob West

  46. Eva White says:

    Congratulations on the fantastic start to the year.

  47. John, will you hurry up and get a brandable logo?? Make sure it has a panda on it too. Oh and make the panda look like it’s eating a Google logo. Hmmm, while it’s wearing a shoemoney T-shirt.

    Yeah, thats the ticket!

    (and congrats – buy the wifey something nice for valentines)

    1. Nice sports cars are his logos. ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. But you can’t brand sports car brans (unless you give them cow camouflage I suppose), someone else owns them.
        I know John mentioned looking into getting one recently. I can’t find the actual post right now but hey… Get to it john!

        1. Ugh, typo. Brans = Brands minus Brains.

  48. limadang.com says:

    What dat TUT… my god John U are really EVil ๐Ÿ™‚ i mean..gurus .. hehe wish to the same income amount like u oh gosh.. Arghh…

  49. RS says:

    I am so impressed. I reported about it in our Bloggtidningen, a newspaper on the web about blogging. But most of people visiting here will not understand it, because it is in Swedish:

  50. Hi john Congratulation! i just mentioned it in my blog and i also mentioned my january income 2008.

  51. Mike Huang says:

    Wow, it is that time of the month again where Mr. Chow shows off his stats ๐Ÿ™‚

    -Mike

  52. Duckeldanny says:

    How do you get so much private ad sales. Greetings from http://www.duckeldanny.com

    1. Look at all the spots he has for sale. 8 ad buttons, like 4 inpost spots, feedvertising, and they are all worth a few hundred dollars each.

  53. John Guanzon says:

    My hats off to you John, I gotta say that is a nice chunk of change. It’s a good year when your starting out with stats like that.

    Keep up the har… erh easy, hehe work bud.

  54. E-Business Blog says:

    Wow! That’s great, Congrat Jon, i hope my e-businessblog.com like yours ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. Michael says:

    wow…nice income for a january :mrgreen:

  56. David Chew says:

    Nice work john, you earn a lot money and that is good.

  57. At this rate you will definitely be over $300,000 and if it keeps imcreasing at 10% per month you’ll be over $600,000 for the year. Insane!

  58. This is awesome! 2008 will be a very interesting year for this monthly report. You are steadily increasing at almost the same rate every month…with no ceiling in sight. I predict in the next few years, if you at least keep up this same pace, you will easily be over $100K per month which is well over the 1 million mark! Wow..

    I read on some other blog that you do not accept all the paid reviews you recieve…I think this is a mistake, as long as you keep the regular posting schedule, you should take all the paid review you are offered! Great Work John!

  59. Lively Money says:

    yah keep increasing John Chow and I am going to catch you

  60. craZed says:

  71. Dusty says:

    As always, I am impressed John. Hopefully, in a few years people will be reading how I turned pennies into millions in the stock market. Too bad only about 10 people will actually read it on my blog ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  72. Congratulation!I hope to increase 50$ per day but is very hard!

  73. gasmoney says:

    ok so my question was deleted? all i asked was about the constant 1,000 from kontera. was that wrong? or did i miss something?

    1. John Chow says:

      My deal with Kontera guarantees me $1,000 min payment.

  74. Charlie says:

    John, you are incredible. You are vivacious. You are sexy and lovely and an inspiration from heaven to my loins.

  79. lalit says:

    I was seeing the income break..What does the following mean?
    Private Ad Sales? How do you do that..do you contact companies or the company contacts you?

    Another thing..my blog gets 20000 traffic with 100000 page views..what should be the rate I am paid for keeping banners of 160*600? Please advise.

  80. Paul says:

    Great job! What will it be in 12 months from now!?

  81. I see lots of blog as well that are running nothing but Adsense, and they wonder why they don’t make any money.

  82. Many of us can only daydream of making that type of money… Still it’s nice to see a webmaster making such cash… Definitely have inspired many to start blogging, etc… ๐Ÿ™‚

  83. katie says:

    Great job ๐Ÿ˜› Keep up the awesome work John ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ~Katie

  84. Soumik says:

    Keep up the good work, John. I can only dream of earning such money.. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  85. Impresive numbers ๐Ÿ™‚

  86. Kimsta says:

    John’s the man!
    He inspired me to go on a quest to become a millionaire in 10 years time! Looking for ideas at the moment, e.g. shares & property investments, make money online, business francise, etc…

    Keep up the good work John, you deserve it mate.

  87. Shams says:

    Lotssssssssssssss of Money ๐Ÿ˜‰

  88. John says:

    Too bad my blog is written in Norwegian instead of English. Probably losing a lot of income potential. I might have to create a new blog in English to make a little money. I peaked at 160 visitors in one day a few days ago – watch out John Chow!

  89. eddiepurba says:

    I don’t know when i will reach that $30,000 +. Most people probably 50 cents to $1000

  90. Great achievement John!
    What plugin are you using to serve up your private ad sales?

  91. cirio says:

    wuaooo ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  92. Well done John, heres to $40,000 a month. No doubt you will reach it in 2008. ๐Ÿ™‚ I would be happy earning $300 a month, let alone $30,000.

  93. Syed Balkhi says:

    Nice work John. I remember the september’s income stats. Johnchow.com is growing and growing. Now more readers then ever. Good work. Hopefully it will increase in the future.

  96. moon says:

    Congratulations! A new record.

  97. Pete says:

    Wait a tick, only 280k page views and you’re making *that* much? Wow. My site, http://ww2db.com has comparable (slightly less) page views in the last month, and I make only a fraction of what you did. Good job John Chow, you never cease to amaze me…

  98. Meanna Blog says:

    Can other people link to their January Income? It would be good to build a kind of league table… just a thought

  99. It’s amazing how much money one can make from blogging in a single month. I can’t see how much John made from google adsense though.

  100. Congratulations on your success yet again. Especially the eCPM.

    You know what might be interesting for your readers since I know your monthly revenue posts get a lot of attention, seeing an updated graph over time of your monthly blog revenues. And if it doesn’t take too much away from the main graph, also adding a breakdown of the different revenue streams would be interesting.

    Just an idea ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great work done John,
    I have been reading your blog for almost a year now, i will never miss your post on 1st of everymonth, your blog is a great inspiration for me, i have not tried more advertising networks like you will soon implement some of your suggestions and will see where i will be in short time. By the way i liked the way you increased the feedburner subscribers list.

    You are filled with great ideas.

    eCPM of $109.04

    That to me is the impressive part. THAT is squeezing the orange for all of its juice…WOW. This is in a time where a $5 CPM is big and you are nearly 22x that…nice!

  108. makes my $1,921.11 passive income sound pathetic! ๐Ÿ™

  109. Woah, 30k. Damn dude. Hit a block on the advertising eh? Most of us struggle trying to get the damn spots sold. your running sold out spots! Thats awesome. Next step would be installing custom software like open ads to help you get maximum returns on investments like text links and some other static advertisements.

  114. Jake says:

    Sorry if this is a repeat question or something. But what are private ad sales? Like where are they on your site and how do you do them. If you’ve already written about them, can you point me in the direction of a link.

    1. Pete says:

      Private ad sales are direct advertising done between the website owner (ie. John Chow) and the vendor (eg. “We Sell Widgets Corporation”). In this case, WSW Corporation cut a check to John directly without going through some kind of ad service such as Google Adsense.

  115. Vincent Abry says:
