    I wonder how much money everyone in this community makes collectively..

    Millions a month? I wouldn't be suprised - think about some of the amounts involved in something like web site flipping alone..

    Thoughts..?

    EDIT: this was supposed to go in the lounge - sorry!

    Good question. Thing is though, only about 1-2% of people on this site are making decent money, so keep that in mind.

    it depends on what you think the average income of each member is.
    My income is most likely above average. My income is also lower than some of the top earners here.

    but lets just say the adverage is $10 a day (anyone who knows how to make a micro niche site can easly be making $10 a day in 6mounths tops.

    So $10 a day = $300 a month (30 day month)
    This forum has 207,147 members so 207,147 X $300 = $62,144,100 per month

    If you calculated my income as being average then this forum would make $6,214,410,000 Per mounth

    So if you know the average income you could calculate it. However we will never know

    I just knew someone would revers engineere that number and find out my income.

    And yes but it would be more accurate to say my company makes that much a month. (I couldn't do it by myself)

    This is probably as close to a accurate number we could possibly calculate

    Of course it's in the millions.
    There are several members here making mid to high five figures a month, and I'm sure a small number making six figures a month. Not every one of them feels the need to start a thread "Just made $xxxx today."
    I'd bet there are probably about 50 members here that make up 95-99% of the total.
