Blogging income in Kenya 2024

34

Blogging Income in Kenya for the year 2024 has not been impressive. Majority of the bloggers have quit blogging to venture into other businesses, others are working remotely especially with Remotasks.

A number of bloggers who used to generate income of Ksh 100,000 per month are now earning less than Ksh 30,000.

One of the reasons why income has drastically dropped is because Kenyans companies are not doing well financially, most of them don’t have budget for advertising. Those advertising in Google have limited budget. As a result, income from AdSense has dropped significantly.

AdSense used to be the main source of income for majority of Kenyan bloggers but due to low pay, they have slowed down in creating content.

A couple of years back 1 million views would generate Ksh 100,000 to Ksh 300,000 but now 1 million views generate Ksh 40,000 to Ksh 100,000.

Below is the income generated by bloggers from AdSense in 2024

1,000 views—Ksh 50 to Ksh 100

10,000 views—Ksh 500
