Although it is old, John Chow's post on The Internet’s Biggest Google Whores is a very interesting (and famous) article concerning 8 personalities all making at least $10k a month from Google Adsense.
Look at the date of the post... 2006. Can you ever imagine how much those people are making now? (At least it's sure that Mr. Hogan makes more than 10 000$ per month, especially when we see how much popular DigitalPoint is.)
Here's the list (person's name - website - monthly income form adsense):
1: Markus Frind: PlentyOfFish.com - $300,000
2: Kevin Rose: Digg.com - $250,000
3: Jeremy Schoemaker: Shoemoney.com - $140,000
4: Jason Calacanis: Weblogs, Inc. (sold to AOL) - $120,000
5: David Miles Jr. & Kato Leonard: Freeweblayouts.net - $100,000
6: Tim Carter: AskTheBuilder.com - $30,000
7: Joel Comm: Adsense-secrets.com - $24,000
8: Shawn Hogan – DigitalPoint.com $10,000
Honestly, I don't know how someone can manage to make more than 350,000$ in a month from Adsense. But I sure could afford that.
Does it make more sense to anyone else?
