Google surpassed by Amazon?
In March 2009 one of my first posts here on IncomeDiary.com was a list of the top 30 websites earned in the world At the time the top earners website wasn't surprisingly Google.com, but I just created a new list of top earnings websites in the world based on statistics that are now available for 2009 and surprise, Surprise, Amazon.com has surpassed Google.com!
Can this really be the case?
Let me be clear: this is a list of some of the most profitable websites in the world and as such I don't claim to have covered every possible website.(but what I wanted to do was give us a comparison of some of the revenues of the most well-known websites based on the PER SECOND model) I don't know why, but there's something extraordinary about comparing earnings on a per-second basis – it almost gives me a shiver down my spine (in a good way) I remember that not so long ago I was excited to earn only $10 a day, then $50 a day and then the day I earned $1000 in a day!
($1000 in a day is ONLY 1,157 cents per second by the way)
Imagine what Jeff Bezos, Larry Page or Sergey Brin must be like.
Mind you – one thing I'm excited about – my profit margins (net profit) as a percentage are significantly higher than Amazon or Google
My father and many other entrepreneurs I know always tell me:
Turnover is vanity, profit is sanity, but CASH is king
This is something to always remember in any trade
comparison I look forward to your comments: which names on this list surprised you?Who should be on this list that isn't?
There are 31536000 seconds in a year – make sure they all count – how Amazon.com 😉
To all our successes
