Unhappy How much do you make per hour from your sites?

I'm interested in how much do webmasters make per hour for maintaining their own sites.
I imagine it would range from
$0.0001/hour
to
$1000/hour
have fun.

Uhh, that's really hard to find out, since most of the sponsors we use don't have stats that detailed.

$1000 an hour? I wonder who makes that kind of money? That would work out to $24,000 a day, and a few million a year I bet.

Well, that doesn't give a very good rate. It's tells me how much my sites earn per hour of the day but it doesn't say how much I would in theory be making per hour.

This is the same question as asking "how much income does your site make each month?"

Yeah, more than half my income comes during the night/rush hour traffic (8-11pm)....etc. It's hard to say how much per hour, several hundred a day tho.

actually what i mean is how much per hour of work you put in. If you make $50 per week and spend 2 hours updating and promoting your site per week, that would put you on $25/hour

I probably make around $300 per work-hour (i.e. hour I actually put in) on emailaddresses.com

Though sometimes when I'm busy this heads to infinity, since the site misses an update or two but the money still comes in!

Just take the total monthly revenue generated by your site and divide it by 720 (24 hours x 30 days). http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

I'm just doing my website on my spare time and for extra *small* cash to be in my pocket... so it's not like I time myself and go "Oh looki, I spend 1 hours and 45min today working on my site, let me write it down on my diary" so I have no idea.

I think its impossible for most of us to look at what we make in hourly terms. Like a lot of other people in here, part of the reason I'm trying to make money off my site is to get away from the hourly thing, working for "the man". Back when I wasn't as successful as I am now, I was probably making pennies per hour, but more importantly I was learning valuable lessons in marketing and design. Stuff like that is invaluable, and had I been paying attention to my "hourly" wage, I would have gotten too discouraged to continue.

I still don't keep track of my hours, although I probably make a lot more than I would if I were working for someone else. Mostly, I do this for fun. You'd have to pay me 3x what I make now to get me to quit doing it http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif I love the challenges in marketing and programming that I have to come up with a solution to. I don't bother to worry about how much I'm making in an hour so long as I'm making as much as I can and I'm able to live comfortably on it http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif I'm sure most of the other people in here have at least sort of the same approach. I know this doesn't answer your question, but maybe it helps answer why the response to it hasn't been that high.

I'm in exactly the same boat as you, Spencer. I started off with my Sitelaunch site, which I worked on full time (while sinking into debt on a credit card) and I never made more than $400/month on it. I did that for a year, before trying other projects. I once worked it out and found out I was making $.15 per hour. I was learning a lot though, and meeting many of folks I still keep in touch with.

I'm more interested in what I'm learning that how much I'm making. The more you know the industry, the easier it is to make money. A lot of the motivation is also to be self-sufficient, to set your own hours, to take charge of your destiny. Right now, someone would have to pay me a mint to give it up, since I'd have to give up the adventure I'm having now.

Wow, you guys have had your sites for a long time! I originally started an emulation site to sort of get to know the ropes http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif Then in February i started my funpage site, and it's already bringing in much more than any jobs i could get around here... heh. How long did it take you guys to get to where you are, all you ppl with 6 figure incomes?.... lol http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif
