The TechCrunch blog was launched in June of 2005 and in just 2 years, they’re the world’s #4 blog (Technorati Popular) and maybe the 2nd most influential (after Engadget).

But the news the other day was how much TC was raking in per month — $240,000 or just over Php10,000,000. Sweet.

Now that’s a lot of trailing zeros. With just 8 full-time employees, including a recently-hired CEO, that number breaks down to $30,000 per month per employee. The San Francisco Chronicle screamed the obvious — “Yes, some blogs are profitable – very profitable.”

That amount comes from the 125×125 pixel ads at the homepage – each one, $10,000 a pop per month. Add to that a $200 per job listing on their Jobs Board. That does not count other revenues TC get from their conferences and parties.

Wow, I thought you spend money to do parties, not earn from them (cool!).

These conferences make a lot. I’ve been to about 4 this past year where the passes have been anywhere from $25 to $1,000. Honestly, you could find most of the info online.

Yup, you are right Abe O. I am a fan of Techcrunch and I know this man – M. Ar.. He is a lawyer and a millionaire. I am one of the reader on his blog since 2006 and I learned a lot on his strategy. It is so sad that I have no much time to spend on working on the net to do the same :). I am a full-time Developer. Hope the site I am developing (almost on production) will click some day *ha ha* :). Wish me luck!

Goed.

it’s all from adsense btw, no affilates or link ads, but since i permanently moved recently to my own paid domain, i guess i have to consider other forms of ads too.

Wow. They should get a Pinoy writer. Duncan Riley is almost universally reviled there.

Mas maganda kasi yung quality ng articles ng TechCrunch compared to Engadget and Gizmodo. I usually go there for news and info.
