    This is the site : shoutmeloud

    This is income report : shoutmeloud/blogging-income-report

    I really couldn't believe this, it is just around $16,000, it must be lot higher, he is most most probably lying. This site top 2000 site in the world. Even with adsense i guess he should be making lot higher. His traffic report also seems to be very not trustable.

    What do you say ?

    I doubt it is fake. If you look at his site on Semrush, he has some decent traffic.

    You should look at his Forum. It almost looks like he pays people to promote his Affiliate Marketing "guides". A guy who promoted the ebook(made a video about it too) said he saw a boost of $900 instantly after putting to use the tactics from the guide.
    He posted his Adsense earnings too. Too sad that he got called out for posting fake screenshots and he hasn't been on the Forum since.

    This is what I was talking about when "pro-bloggers" and "gurus" bring out their guides for newbs and only fill it with Affiliate Links.

    No, semrush doesn't have good traffic estimates imo, i can explain it but will take time. it has very poor traffic estimates actually, i asked some tricky questions to their support they said they don't reveal the way they do that and they were little clueless on that as i asked so much questions on traffic cost and organic traffic. And these sites have considerable proportion of returning visitors for which semrush doesn't have any data.

    It is fake for sure, it is !!

    Lol I don't have time to go around spying on people unless it's someone I'm trying to outrank. Even if it is fake does it really matter? Nothing you can do about it so I would suggest putting your time into more constructive stuff.

    If it was in hiking niche (just an example) I bet it would be in top 20,000 rather than 2K

    you also have a blog just like him, it should be relevant to you if you want to outrank him in some areas.

    Has the owner of this site upset you? I think that is the problem here. Has he been calling you naughty names?

    Let's say his traffic is fake or earnings or whatever. OK. Now what? Will we get the pitchforks and torches so we can start an angry mob?

    What's your objective, exactly?

    I have no desire to outrank him. My blog is for fun. I make my income in other areas.

    Not upsetting me in anyway, i don't follow this site even(SE takes me there for some queries). The traffic numbers and earnings didn't make any sense at all to me. No! clear No! He must be hiding !!

    The best thing you can do right now is go and make it happen instead of dwelling on it. The results of what you try to do in life are up to you and only you. Trying to call someone out for fake earnings won't help you.
