    Cool The Most Influential Bloggers in Malaysia

    After a lot of research (phew!), I created a list of the Most Influential Bloggers in Malaysia and reasons why.

    I found they mostly all made money from:

    Google Adsense,
    Advertlets,
    Nuffnang and Direct Advertising

    The most influential in Malaysia is surely the grandaddy of all bloggers, Raja Petra... no? In term of "influence", he's miles ahead of the others.

    Ah ha, I thought his name would crop up! He's a political blogger, I focused on everyday bloggers who have influence and make money from doing so...they're more interesting!

    Influential, undoubtedly, but 'in Malaysia'? Who knows!

    Hehe, well my list is better than nothing. I know Gobal is a powerhouse in Malaysian Blog Marketing, but his site looked too "spammy" for my liking...

    What about Paul Tan at Paul Tanís Automotive News - news, reviews, motoring tips He's definitely niche. His site is not over-the-top spammy either.

    Did you mean 'influential' in the blogging world? Gobala Krishnan is probably the undisputed king of 'spamming for success', and I'm sure he has influenced many Malaysian bloggers. I suspect that once upon a time Google would have been actively trying to depress the ranking of overtly spammy sites, but once the success sites make enough money to buy Google AdWords, they become an industry in themselves, and are probably good Google customers. For that reason alone I guess it could be said that his influence extends beyond the blogging world. Everybody's Google results contain more spam, thanks to him!

    Perhaps you need to come up with a tighter definition of 'influential'. It's certainly an interesting topic.

    Yep I'm a big fan of Paul Tan's site, but personally I don't consider it a personal blog. Anyone could talk about cars and label it as a blog, his is more of an enthustast site.

    I think the ones I mentioned are influential not just in terms of revenue, visitors etc., but they are masters of their own niches:

    LiewCF - Technology Blogging
    5xmom - Emotional/Discussion Blogging
    Kenny Sia - Funny/Blogging Travels....

    As mentioned in the article there may be others who make more or who have more visitors, but the ones mentioned in the article have more "power" or "influence" in their specialised niches....

    Yap... I think there are some bloggers which is quite famous but has low profile...
    Earning from Adverlets itself I didn't try out personally. But I believe with current trend the way you can earn money includes clickbanks as well.
