    Can any Amazon affiliates confirm that these earnings are accurate?

    Definitely some really unique niches on that list doing great numbers (if they are accurate)! Very inspiring.

    I am sad that my site is not on the list but also kind of happy to see my competitors are there.
    Weird feeling.

    The one thing they all have in common seems to be producing high quality content. What a shame you have to work to earn lots!

    Also some of those sites do not have evergreen content. Their content becomes outdated rapidly as technology progresses. They have so many pages because they constantly need new content. However, it also means they always have new content for people to come and read.

    Some of the estimates seem low and some of those sites may have other ways to monetize as well. For example, Toms Hardware does not just use amazon affiliate programs but also links to local PC stores for the user from their home country. In those cases they actually found cheaper alternatives for me than amazon and linked me to it where I could buy locally. Therefore, I think their operation and the operation of many of these sites is far more sophisticated than "amazon affiliate".

    According to Reza in the comments who owns one of the sites on the list he says the earnings estimate is actually too high on his site and he makes far less money. That may be the case with many of the small sites and for the bigger sites I think they are probably underestimated.

    Great point, I guess they just used a standard revenue per visitor estimate which wouldn't take into account other monetization methods - or even other channels.

    One of my sites is on that list and the earning numbers are pretty accurate. Gives a good ballpark at least.

    Is that all from Amazon though? Amazon commissions are low. I am in the process of setting up some sites and commissions are in the range of 20% - 30%. I might add in some amazon links to some stuff since there is no other option. I guess the trouble with most niches is that people will buy from Amazon anyway and there are very few niches which Amazon isn't in (like gambling or porn).

    Yes, my site is all from Amazon. It's 90%+ buying guide articles, so it's likely on the higher earning side for the amount of traffic it receives.

    Crazy! Lots of autogenerated content though. Most sites only a few hundred pages total.
