Most bloggers ask whether it’s possible to earn $100,000 per month through blogging. Well, earning this amount of money isn’t a walk in the park— you have to be an excellent blogger: less than 10% of bloggers in the entire world earn above $100,000 per month. I am sure there are bloggers who have never earned even $1,000 per month and thinking of $100,000 is not their thing, but it’s good to dream big. I occasionally earn $100,000 per month. I can’t lie, since I started blogging in 2011, I have only earned this amount twice.
Even majority of bloggers who started blogging before 2010 have never come close to $100,000—this income is for the super gifted bloggers.
To make it clear, if you are monetizing with AdSense, you need traffic of above 10 million per month to be assured of earning over $100,000. The traffic should be organic and coming from USA, Canada or other developed countries like USA and Autralia.The average cost per click should be above $0.30
The first time I generated $100,000 from my blog was in 2018.I had posted several articles with affiliate links. I earned a total of $80,000 from the affiliates. The other amount was earned from AdSense, sponsored articles and direct banners. I also sold my own products which generated for me over $1,000 every month.
One thing you should know is that to earn over $100,000 per month, you need to host your site with high traffic hosting companies like Bluehost and Kinsta.I remember when I earned $100,000, I paid Kinsta $1,400 that month for hosting because my traffic was 20,000. It’s an unwritten rule that when traffic increases, hosting costs increase too, translating to high income. If you’re serious of making earning the amount,you can migrate your site to Kinsta in preparation for the boom,click here to see Kinsta pricing
Kinsta is a bit expensive, I propose you start with Bluehost Shared hosting which cost $2.95 per month, then upgrade to Dedicated Server Hosting when traffic grows past 1 million. To learn more about Bluehost,follow this link
