The average monthly income of Kenyan bloggers in Kenya is Ksh 30,000. However, there are a few of them who pull in more than Ksh 500,000 per month. In 2020, most of them have been affected by COVID-19, resulting to drastic drop in the income figures. But there are specific blogs, like Tuko News whose growth has been progressively positive.
How much exactly do specific bloggers in Kenya earn? Here are the estimates of income figures for specific bloggers/blogs in Kenya as of 2020:
- Tuko News—Ksh 3.5 million per month
- Standard Digital—Ksh 6 million per month
- Nation—Ksh7 million per month
- Kenyans—Ksh 2 million per month
- Robert Alai—Ksh350,000 per month

It’s unfortunate that the same old blogs continue to dominate even as thousands of new blogs are created every day. One reason why new blogs don’t break even is because they don’t come up with unique content…they always copy from the established blogs.
The income numbers for Ghafla, Daily Post Kenya, Mpasho and Kahawatungu dropped drastically because they were banned from AdSense—more than 98% of Kenyans monetize through AdSense.
I know those who are aiming to become bloggers would like to know how much they can earn from AdSense, here are the figures.
10,000 monthly page views—Ksh2,000
20,000 monthly page views—Ksh3,500
50,000 monthly page views—Ksh8,000
100,000 monthly page views—Ksh 15,000
200,000 monthly page views—Ksh 30,000
500,000 monthly page views—Ksh 80,000
1 million monthly page views—Ksh 140,000
The best traffic you’ll get in a month to become comfortable is over 1 million monthly page views.
