105+ Blog Income Reports [How Bloggers Make Money]
105+ Blog Income Reports [How Bloggers Make Money]

105+ Niche Websites & Blog Income Reports [Research]

In the following 100+ websites and blog income reports roundup, I analyze how bloggers and website owners make money with their websites. I grouped these 100+ blogs in 10 niches, and for each blog, you can see the yearly income, estimated traffic, main topics, and monetization methods.

I recommend you check this list and read in detail the income reports, as they are full of more information on what works and what doesn’t for these bloggers. You will be able to find out how much money bloggers make, what monetization methods they should use, what topics you should focus on, etc.

It took me around 20 hours of researching, analyzing, and over 24 hours to write and format the content so you can easily browse the income reports list and learn how bloggers make money.

This has resulted in a fantastic collection of inspiration for aspiring bloggers and niche website owners.

Blog Income Reports Overview

Below you’ll find the list of all income reports I found.

For each blog and niche website, I’ve listed the topics that bloggers focus on writing and what the website made according to the last public income report. Each public income report was linked so you can go through it and see precisely the figures the bloggers share. For some, I’ve estimated how much the website will make in 2022, considering the traffic and the monetization methods. Also, I’ve added the estimated monthly traffic according to Semrush and the main monetization methods the bloggers are using.

I dug deep to find these because some bloggers only write reports every couple of months or even once a year. Nowadays, most bloggers and niche site owners do not share public reports. They are reluctant to share income figures because they are afraid of their niche insides being stolen by competitors. So besides public reports, I’ve scouted marketplaces for websites that have been sold and shared their income last year.

These reports are in random order, even though the high earners might be on top. Some reports date back a few years, but all sites on this list are actively maintained.

So without further ado, I’m thrilled with the result I can present to you.

Let’s take a closer look. 🙂

1. High Earning Blogs $94,000 619,000 $182 Courses & Digital Products, Aff. Marketing

Health, Fitness Blog Income Reports

The online fitness industry has grown 77.33% since 2019, estimated at around $6.04 billion. With pandemic-induced gym closures, the online health fitness space has thrived as people found new ways to get and stay active, creating a booming (but competitive) market for health and fitness blogs.

In the health and fitness category we analyzed 5 blogs which are making $151,000 in yearly revenue. This translates to roughly $12,583 in monthly revenue. These five blogs get an estimated no of 660,000 monthly visitors. So on average, each blog makes, per month, $2,516 and receives 132,000 visits. This makes an RPM of $19 for health and fitness nice. As most of these blogs do not have high audiences, they can not secure better-paid collaborations, which may explain the lower RPM.
