    The can be a hard question to answer, I would assume the most profitable blogs are already owned by people or companies who already have lots of money. I could be wrong

    I think niche site's like Mashable.com must do well. If not their huge reader-base must keep them pressing forward.
    Good site btw

    I have no idea of the answer to the question, but I'd guess there would be no correlation between the most traffic'd blogs and the most profitable as I'd guess the most traffic'd ones are not made to make money as such but are there to provide updates to companies existing customers.

    Also, you would run into issues here in actually defining a blog as many of the highest earning blogs possibly earn their income not from the blog itself, but from other parts of a larger site/network which they generate traffic for.

    So a tricky/impossible question to answer I think.

    I'd agree not all profitable blogs earn from the blog so much as the buzz they create about the companies products. If you're talking from Ads placed on the page most probably do well if they get decent traffic, but many companies have blogs with lots of traffic. But there are so many other ways to earn from blogs its hard to say.

    They constantly increase. Chow = $27,000+ for month of Dec. 2007 & Shoemoney started hitting $30,000 per month in Nov. 2007.

    If you aren't doing this already, you might consider outsourcing some of your post submissions or making the time to draft a large number for future posts and joining some of the paid programs promoted by Chow and others.

    Techcrunch, ReadWriteWeb, BoingBoing, Mashable, ProBlogger, DailyKos.

    Obviously network blogs like Engadget, Gizmodo, TUAW, Gawker and Kotaku will earn a fair bit too.

    I read him saying that he only earned 5,000$ from the YouTube partnership so far which he finds pretty cheap relative to the number of hits his videos get, which is literally millions, so he decided to host his clips locally and called it quits with YouTube, though I'm not entirely sure about the last part.

    Good site btw
    Pete CA$Hmore (Mashable) earns like 100,000$ a month if I'm not mistaken. He's got three or more writers in his site and the last I heard was he pays them 200$ each, so he must be really loaded.

    ...You know what, this made me think, hmm, why not make a blog about blogger gossip, but something less serious and non-legal like TechCrunch since I don't have that skill 0_0 but I've got non-blog related bigger plans though

    These blog owners already have stocks of cash in their disposal to pay for SEO, writers, and Internet marketers. Investment is necessary.

    I recently recall someone posting they were on pace to hit $40K per month on their blog (can't remember the name of the blog).

    Kind of hard to believe but I guess if you have the traffic anything is possible.

    Weblogs, Inc. I'd imagine...

    Weblogs, Inc. was purchased in October 2005 by AOL for a reported $25 million.

    Gawker
    B5Media
    Weblogs, Inc

    Some of those left-wing blogs charge upwards of $9,000 per week for advertising on the main page.
