I Am The Number 2 Make Money Online Blog

Mark at 45n5 sent me an email about his latest piece of linkbait, the Top 100 Make Money Online Blogs. I have to admit, Mark is getting pretty good at this baiting stuff.

The 45n5 Top 100 is a list of the top blogs that cover the topic of making money on the internet. Ranks are based on a combination of Google PageRank, Technorati rank and Alexa rating. I’m currently ranked number two, behind Problogger and ahead of Shoemoney.

While this is a top 100 list, there are only 73 sites listed. Mark is hoping more make money online blogs will add themselves to the list to bring the total to 100. Mark lists the benefits the Top 100 offers for readers, bloggers and advertisers. However, he didn’t list the one evil benefit the list offers for bloggers. The Top 100 is a nice mailing list to send your spam news to. 😈

Here are the top 10 make money online blogs. See the full list here.

  1. Congrats John, you do great work and it’s quite inspirational. I look to your entries here frequently for ideas and have implemented Kontera recently thanks to you..

    I’ve seen Johncow.com, did you know there is also “Johnhow.com”?

    Keep up the great work!

    1. There are so many John Chow rip-offs the only real one even worth mentioning is definitely… the one, the only, JohnCow.com

      1. MyBlogCotest says:

        Oh yes! John is the #2!! :mrgreen:

      2. Some of us JohnChow ripoffs aren’t that bad ;-P

    2. Congrats John, it was no doubt you were suppose to sit on that list. The thing is that others don’t display publicly their earnings…maybe thats their only resource of earnings so it is more than normal not to display them.

      Well done Johny (sheesh reading this blog too often makes me feel more confident and calling you Johny, you don’t mind do you?) πŸ˜•

    There must be tons of make money online blogs – the ones after the top 24 could be anything… 😈

    1. I’m outside the top 24 πŸ™ 102 last time I checked!! Though my domain is less than 2 weeks old, so I don’t have a pagerank yet πŸ™

      1. WarriorBlog says:

        Mine is in the list too, but not too high up top πŸ™

    1. KingJacob says:

      Maybe number wise,but problogger tends to write more better articles on the subject though problogger is strictly a one area blog while jc.com is more about jc

      1. Yeah, I agree. The two blogs are quite different. JC is more of a personal blog with a healthy dose of online marketing stuff (like ShoeMoney) whereas ProBlogger is all business πŸ™‚

        Both approaches have their merits imo.

        1. Wahlau.NET says:

          john has more evil in him

    2. Dave says:

      Personally, I find John Chow’s blog to be much more informative than Problogger. In fact, for me, Problogger is boring and rather uninformative, and the writing style does nothing to grip the audience.

      1. And it’s not updated as often πŸ™‚

  3. 45n5 says:

    Thanks John, I’m learning from some of the best πŸ˜‰

    Note that the metrics to rank the blogs will get better with time, I had to start somewhere.

    Also, the page is already a great spot to find more blogs like yours.

    Thanks again for the mention,

    1. I think this is a great list that really needed to be put out. I’m sure it will serve and an invaluable tool to many newbies!

    2. There are a few on there that I’ve not visited but will now, great link bait and also worth a submission for us make money bloggers.

    3. Congrats on the list (and linkbait πŸ‘Ώ ) Mark. It was a great idea.

      I also found it pretty helpful. There are some good blogs in there that I had never heard of before now.

  4. Ed Lau says:

    Hmmm…a few surprises on that list.

    1. Who are you surprised to find on the list?

  5. Nate W. says:

    Wow I am amazed I am at #8.

  6. Just give me a few months… I’ll be up in the top 10 πŸ˜‰

    1. Race you there!! πŸ™‚

  7. sweet I’m in the top 100!

    We’ll see how long that lasts lol.

    1. YC says:

      Now write a post on how you got there… 😈

  8. Click Input says:

    A very cool list… some good sites there

  9. Starfeeder says:

    cool list indeed, gotta check these out

  10. Lindsay says:

    Does this mean they haven’t heard of stuff4restaurants.com surely this is a mistake, oh well I will just have to try a whole lot harder and more often… Congratulations 😳

  11. Rob says:

    it will not take much time for you John to go to number one of that list :mrgreen:

  12. Great work John. Knowing how popular this subject is I am surprised that they did not manage to fill the top 100.

    1. Word Hugger says:

      Unless it was the top 100 that were actually useful, in which case there might have only been 73 ‘above average’ ones πŸ˜‰

  13. GettyCash says:

    Wow just like you could read my mind.. I was looking for top bloggers list yesterday hehehe πŸ˜›

  14. KiwiPulse says:

    Congratz, I think you get ranked because of your Alexa. Anyways with fellow like me, I will keep your blog up of the list πŸ˜€

  15. baloot says:


    nice job John… :mrgreen:

    maybe one-day u will come up 1st… πŸ˜€

    anyway, i like your new templates a lot.. πŸ˜†

  16. Wayne Liew says:

    Actually, I like your layout more compared to Problogger because you have the original “chronological post sequence” feature of a blog.

    1. YC says:

      Problogger is not that readable now compared to its previous layout, imo.

      1. Yeah, it takes some getting used to, that is for sure. It is much more like a news or e-magazine site now. Not that this is a bad thing.

      2. Hi John,

        I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on the accuracy of the list. In particular how you think your site compares with ProBlogger and ShoeMoney?

      3. I’d agree with that – I always get confused when I go the site.. I start reading and think “where the hell are the other articles?!”

  17. Anonse says:

    Thanks so very much for taking your time to create this very useful and informative site. I have learned a lot from your site. Thanks!!

  18. John Andrew says:

    Congrats! …you’re supplying a lot of good stuff here..

  19. Great work there,
    Congrats…. I just downloaded your eBook from the homepage too.
    Continue sharing such wonderful piece of knowledge with us and i believe you will become No.1 someday… Nah.. Soon.. Someday is for loser right? πŸ™‚

  20. Nice list… good for advertising needs.

  21. Klaudio says:

    Hi! A very useful list! πŸ’‘

  22. Congrats! πŸ‘Ώ

    I’ve emailed asking to be added to the list πŸ˜€ I’ve only been running for 1 week, so no pagerank, but my alexa and technorati rank should at least keep me out the bottom few!

  23. SEO blog says:

    That’s cool! Hopefully someday you’ll be #1. :mrgreen:

  24. oli says:

    Wow John, your so great.

  25. Shaun says:

    Wow, congrats. Why isn’t my blog on there? Haha!

    1. Email him πŸ™‚ I did and now I’m on there πŸ˜€

  26. Matej says:

    Great achievement. “John Chow” is now kind of a synonym for “Make Money online”.

  27. Alan Hollis says:

    Great list, I am just starting out with this make money blogging thing. It’s early day’s and my first months profits were no where near that of John’s but I am making a start. Maybe it will take a few years to emulate the success of this blog rather than the year it has taken Mr John.

    Feedback on my blog so far would be welcomed!

  28. KP says:

    Congratulation to you, John.

    You deserve it, you have a great blog.

  29. You have waaaaaaayyy too much influence over your readers:

    “The Top 100 is a nice mailing list to send your spam news to.”

    Already I’m getting more of this since you put up this post on a Sunday morning.
    I hate to see my inbox come Monday!
    You are the king of evil John. 😈 But I love ya anyway.

  30. Ebay_Tips says:

    JC vs Problogger Showdown! Or perhaps some kind of collaborative work between the two of you? Merge & destroy.

  31. Poker Sharks says:

    No tan exactly ‘complete’ list there with some of the biggest blogs totally left off.

    Techcrunch, BoingBoing anyone? They make a day what problogger does in a month.

    1. John Chow says:

      Those blogs don’t cover make money online.

      1. Poker Sharks says:

        Ah, but technically, since you removed that from your tag at the request of the numbskulls your blog is about boats babes and anything.

        I getcha though, didnt spot the make money online bit.

  32. I love John Chow too…but I think Dosh Dosh is also one of the best on there and hasn’t been operating for long either…rising to the top πŸ˜‰

  33. Ebay_Tips says:

    Anybody else notice the new “boats babes & cars” title, haha.

  34. Devid says:

    Congrats John, you do great work and it’s quite inspirational. :mrgreen:

  35. mervandi says:

    congratulation John. you deserve it even better.
    btw, thanks for the ebook. i’ve done some of your advices on the ebook -to own non free blog (website). thanks

    How to get listed there?

  39. CS says:

    Good Job. Well Done. Hope you can reveal the secret step by step in a clear and easy to understand manner. TQ

  40. abhishek says:

    First of all congrats John. I have heard a lot about your site in various forums and it seems even more intresting that you are the number 2 in making money too.I would love a post about how you made it to top. Becz one thing is there that you have contents that are eye catching and terrific but that itself doesn’t make it top.
    Mind sharing some tips with us.

  41. I’m unsure, but Problogger.net seems to be down.
    My FireFox is unable to find a server for this domain.

    It seems that visitors from your blog completely overloaded his server πŸ˜‰

  42. WarriorBlog says:

    You might wanna bookmark the site because it can be a very helpfuul reference if you wanna make money online πŸ˜‰

    You have beaten shoemoney …. wowow πŸ˜€ congrats
