Welcome to the New Year 2010, and iam here to announce that 2009 was one of the best years of my life. Here are few of the reasons for the same.
Got Married : Well in the year 2009 i got married and became more serious in my life. This is because once a guy gets married he comes a responsible man who has to think responsibly, plan out everything in life and then execute stuff. While you are a guy you can do anything because in most cases your family would support you for the same and would take you as a teenager but once you are married, the life totally changes and you need to face everything in your life from making decisions, giving time towards your family and even building a good reputation within your society because where you really live your daily life.
New Online Projects :
During the year 2009 i did start many new different websites and even tried to work on the ones which were started earlier by just pushing them ahead. Generally any website would do well if complete concentration is given to it, but if we work on it rarely ie like part time dedication then its obvious that the results wont be coming in. Though some of our sites did cross the minimum barriers & some did above average which includes – Best Pregnancy Tips, Career Gears, Heart Diseases, Health Tips, Laptops Next, Christmas Wow, India Guide, Top Bikes etc. The list is quite big and whenever i find a good idea i would start implementing it right away and in most cases its starting a new website which as previously mentioned wont be really making me hell lot of money but would still make a lot in the future and these all are the plants which are waiting to become trees and give me the fruits.
2009 Income Statistics :
The title says it all. This means that i have crossed 6 Figure Blogging Income this year ie 1,00,000$+ Income made during the year 2009 all through Online Blogging. Last year i wrote down complete History of AmitBhawani.com, which was a lot useful to most of our readers because they could know how we started and how should someone implement the same steps. Instead of just talking about the numbers let me give you more detailed information on the source of this money making.
- Google Adsense 60%
- CPM Networks 20%
- Direct Ads / Incontent Link Ads 10%
- Affiliate Networks 5%
- Others 5%
The affiliate networks revenue is almost nothing and this is because i never concentrated on it, but the year 2010 would have a target of implementing more onto this area because if you have got traffic then merging it with Affiliates would yield the maximum results. Overall the income had been on a increasing trend and the year beginning was almost nothing when compared to the last quarter of 2009.
2009 Blogging Stats : Along with the revenue point of view it would be good to give more stats on my current blogs which i handle. Overall i can say currently we have 4 serious blogs which have great traffic along with a total feed subscribers count of 61000 which infact is a good number. This means that every day when we make a blog post more than 61000 people get emailed with whatever we write and iam sure we are improving in quality standards and also in numbers wise. This is all working because our blog readers like what we write on our different blogs and they read and even share the same in their network which helps us in growing our blogs. Since this post in posted on our Tech Blog let me give some statistics on this domain name ie amitbhawani.com which has many other sub-blogs like Auto, India, Health, Career, Jobs etc all of which get visitors from all over the world and these all have currently a total subscribers of 24,000.
2010 Targets & Goals : Now since i have already discussed what i had achieved in the year 2009, now let me share with you what kind of plans i have got for the next year. Iam sure 99% of the guys[Bloggers] would have targets like More Money, More Visitors, More Blogs & Bigger Networks which is also one of my own target too but apart from this i have few more Goals for this year which are listed below.
- Goal 1 : Have a Fantastic & Better Family – I want to give more and more time to my family and make sure all iz well, and this is only possible when you listen and also be a part of time all the time. Take this as a personal advice – but if your family issues are always settled you are always living in a good atmosphere and this would mean that you get more productivity and ideas. I have seen many bloggers who dont get time for Blogging because of their Offline Life issues and if these are settled, the whole world can be yours.
- Goal 2 : Scheduling Stuff & Implementation – I have a wrong habit of working at midnight and also on sundays but when this is compared with other people i feel they have a better life, and this is because now i feel Money is not everything and its the life which we cannot live again and we have to spend every moment of our life in such a way that in the future we don’t feel bad about what we have done in the past. Hence iam going to go for better schedules on my work and also live life King Size from 2010. It can be hard but when you have got targets and schedules, working on them can be easier and iam going to try my best to implement all my plans.
- Goal 3 : Speak at Conferences – As previously mentioned i have slowly started to overcome my Stage Fear and this is something i do accept as a fact because this was possible only with a single line i was recently told which was ‘The most difficult things in our Life are the most easiest if you implement them right away’. We have already confirmed three conferences for 2010 where i would be speaking on Internet Marketing & Blogging. Hence i want to make sure i can focus on this and teach more people on how to get into Web Blogging and also personally become a more confident person.
These three are the most important goals for 2010 and i would love to know how was the year 2009 for you guys and what plans you have got for the next year.
Amit Nyamtabad says
Excellent post again, been slacking a lot since December. This post has come at the right time.
Happy new year
Prasanth Chandra says
Great set of goals.. may you get whatever you want in 2010..
Happy and prosperous new year.. 🙂
after reading this i decided to write my views as post …sorry to copy amith …ill message you once done
Shahab khan says
Quite Impressive stats Amit. Keep it up!
Ravi Kumar says
Hi Amit, Congrats for making more than 1 Lakh $ in the year 2009. You are my guru and because of your tips i was able to reach 10000$ Income for the total year which is around 460000Rs quite better than the job package i was offered of 3 lacs/ annum. Please write more on seo and income opportunities because thats something which interests me.
100k USD not 460k INR its 4600k
palla ramarao says
He said its 10k USD not 100k USD, so he’s right, it’s 460k i.e Rs 4 lak 60thousand. I don’t think, everybody can earn 46 lacs. If that is so, everybody resign their job and start blogging. I’m still not convinced that all you guys are earning so much, because, i have a blogger blog called http://www.techlikes.com, which doesnt even make $1 a day. Can you guys suggest me how to increase my revenue atleast $10 per day.. Plz help
WOW ! Congrats Amit 🙂
Well done. You are a successful blogger with vision. For many of us you are a role model.
Hey Happy and prosperous new year.
Your such posts inspires many bloggers.
Congrats buddy for your success and all the best for your goals 🙂
Amit, Congrats on crossing 6 figure blogging income, I wish you cross many more milestone and your goals.You are definitely an inspiration to many. Lastly Happy New Year 🙂
sajid rasheed says
Amit( Happy New Year ) Nice post.I like your informative and knowledgeable blog.Thanks for sharing.
With your SEO coaching, which you have given in the last 3 months of 2008, I have earned about $7000 in 2009, which includes adsense, komli cpm ads, infolinks and dws ads. And I am quiet happy with dws ads beta version done by you. When you are going to launch the official version of dws ads?
Rockstar Sid says
I seriously APPLAUDED to know the fact that you have started to make 6 figure monthly income which not only inspires me but makes me happy to see you go through the thousands and now you are on the ten thousand+ range which is all because of your hard effort.
I wish you an excellent year ahead and rest of the life. And, as I say you will really rock this year as well.. I hope that you can make it 1 lakh dollar by 2010.. All my small blessing will always stay with you, forever and I thank you for awesome things you have been doing from a lot of years for now.. 🙂 It’s time you get going offline, start coaching, giving seo classes and much more! Never knew about the stage fear 😛
Every experience has been an lesson for me and with good deeds that you’ve done in the past – You really deserve to make millions of dollars per month 🙂
Good++ luck++ from Sid.
That is quite some achievement. When I started with online web business, I was very skeptic of all this money making things. But seeing people like you succeed gives us hope and make us to really start doing something. You are really a role model for young entrepreneurs.
Balaji J H says
You know me well and you have achieved your feed subscribers goal almost near off and my hearty regards for your Income
I wish you a Happy New Year 2010 to you and your Family
You are the guy who inspired me and helping me at times to achieve my goal 🙂
Amal Roy says
The most helpful guy i have ever seen among the netizens. Good Luck Amit i am sure you will reach height very far than this. I am too working hard like you really because you inspired me a lot.
Congrats! This is truly impressive! 🙂
Jens P. Berget says
Wow. A six figure blogger. That’s a dream of mine.
Happy New Year, and congratulations.
Congrats for the outstanding performance. 6 Six figure is the dream of every blogger. but the fact is that all cannot be a Tendulkar.
You said it right, money is not everything, working on Sundays & midnight is not a good habit. spend for your family to keep them happy ;that cannot be bought by money.
Your stage fear is a new news for me. but I had read somewhere that you attended seo conferences. was it conference or as an seo trainer? expecting your conference speeches through amitbhawani.com . When is the first one?
My goals for 2010 as a part time blogger.
1. Improve my language & style of writing
2. Bring 1500 Visitors /day to my blog.
3. Start making some money through blogging.
Amit Bhawani says
Hey, I did organize few SEO Conferences years back and in all of these i had hired speakers who would speak for me and i would just handle small group discussions and quick question rounds. Now almost ready for anything!
congrats amit… after long time i have seen your blog… really you are going towards your goal alltime… at last wish you a happy new year.
congratulation Amit for your achievement and for your marriage,
Congrads Amit, You are the model blogger who achieved the Everest height within a short span of time. Your hard work, talent and professionalism are really praiseworthy.
Happy new year to you, your family and crew.
Conragets Sirji, your my inspiration now…
best of luck for 2010

Azad Shaikh says
I had been new at your blog and got hooked up very easily. I am also a blogger and started serious blogging from this month on. You had been earning good from adsense but i have a suggestion for you to come up with some information product of some software/script that you can sell online. That will make more money for you. You are having very good and large audience already so your chances for success in selling are very high.
I am creating my audience and when i will get 1000 subscriber and 1000 unique hits per day i will roll out my first product.
Also i had send you a friend request at facebook, please accept it. I am also an wordpress developer and SEO professional so we can share some expertise on facebook.

Arup Basak says
I’ve read this,
Amit Bhawani Patel: I’m a Six Figure Blogger – 2009 Stats & 2010 Goals
and am now more confident in the work on my site, within a year or two, if I concentrate more, I can and will earn more than pocketmoney from it. Thanks for sharing your story in this page and in this page https://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/amitbhawani-blog-history-stats/.
you said, paid hosting is better, I beleive, but untill I get more traffic that a free hoster can easily handle, i will stay in free hosting. I heard that one can also host his own site from home-computer by some kind of software, can you give me details. does dynamic hosting applies, so that when my computer is on, I host my site, and when is off, free hosting site hosts.
Again, thanks for inspiring me
wow congrats Amit.
$ 1,00,000 is my dream.
I made $7k + in 2009 but Its a good start as Its only 1 year that I’ve been working now.
wow loved it… you are living my dream !
Ritu Sharma says
hey thats really great year for you 🙂
Your 2009 was really spectacular success.
I am a newbie and earning Rs.10000 p.m. with 1 year experience. my site traffic is 5000 impressions per day. Can you please suggest any adsense compliant other revenue sources like CPM networks. Please mention CPMs which pays fair and better. Shall I go for Inforlinks / Kontera with this traffic?
Thanks in advance.
Amit Bhawani says
I would say dont opt for any of the programs like kontera / infolinks right now as they wont be paying any good amount of money right now. Better wait and build traffic and subscribers first. Also regarding the CPM Programs we will be writing reviews of a few in the coming days, so subscribe to our blog and get updated.
Great post. I noticed that a lot of the comments and rules over here and on many of your other blog posts also apply in a generic way to a community building exercise. Blogging and Community Building have a lot in common. I hope to be able apply these concepts on our community http://www.peepaal.org. Its been a bit of struggle lately but hope to revive it.
Always inspiring to come across posts like this. Good luck meeting your goals and I look forward to tracking your progress.
hi, wow amazing figures…you rock amit… if you not use Chitika, then which CPM network you use…what about tyroo? is this best company in India for CPM.
and i wanna know which is the best Internet Marketing company in Mumbai along with their working on Ecommerce site and CMS…
Plz if you can help me on this? it would be so kind of you…
Well all the best dude…u r a real genius…happy blogging…:)…..

its great to hear that indians are doing so good in internet marketing… great going…. man
You should be really appreciated for what you have achieved! 61,000 subscribers is not so easy, and you have really tried a lot and done a terrific job!! You are the role model for many of the newbies like me…. Keep On Rocking!!
I am at awe at your achievement and really very very inspired by what you have done. you have also nicely layout facts instead of just hot air. I am really thankful for sharing this information. Though I like blogging I have just started a free photography site where I let users download free high resolution images both personal and commercial use. I intent to use adsense at some time in future. I would go through this blog again in detail and see if I can takeaway anything to my work.
Do you have any other material that might be of help to me? Any help from you would be highly appreciated.
Thanks for sharing this article.
