Making money as a blogger in Kenya is the dream of every blogger even when you’re a newbie. Top money making blogs were at one time small, they gradually grew and become a force to reckon with. What a number of bloggers wish to know is the amount of such blogs in Kenya earn per month.
I have disclosed everything before but not in regard to income of top bloggers. Many of them, especially the viral ones don’t reveal what they earn for fear of being taxed or for security reasons. The perception of many Kenyans is that bloggers earn so little, but in the real sense, there are a number of bloggers earning in the tune of millions every dawn of a month.
Kenyan bloggers earn money through Google AdSense, AdSense alternatives, sponsored articles, direct advertisements, affiliate marketing, YouTube and social media videos. Those running independent blogs earn the most.
Income of bloggers is dependent on traffic; the more traffic a blog receives the more it earns. Since majority of bloggers in the country earn from AdSense, traffic is the principal parameter that determines the income levels. The most visited blogs are the top money making blogs in the country.
Here is the amount of money top blogs generate every month in Kenya:

For a blog to earn more than a million especially from AdSense, it must get over 5 million page views per month. AdSense pays in terms of Cost Per Click and Cost Per Mile. The CPM for 1,000 views is approximately $1. The Cost Per Click is between 0.01 and 0.10
