The best way to make money online is to follow the people who actually are doing it, unfortunately in the online world Google slaps a Google penalty if you literally do that by copying successful bloggers (Some are just floggers).
And even if you really want to follow the successful money makers , they never really reveal the real money making secrets.
Follow Top bloggers to become top money making blogger
But there are some that do ( up to a certain extent) reveal the blogging secrets, and the smart people can get the clues from their posts (to get the bigger picture) from the information revealed. Makemoney online is a hard game and i got some of my favourite bookmarked blogs that give me regular useful information , that you might find useful too which i have listed below.
Some of the blogs that I follow, surely are some of the biggest money earners on the internet, but in relation to handing out any useful tips to making money, only a few of these blogs occasionally post anything useful when they are not flogging stuff to their viewers.
So i have ranked these blog’s below in order of importance to me and for you. Some of these unfortunately as John Chow states, have pretty much become “internet marketing whores” and they sometimes are blogs that “who flog, more than blog” ( yeh yeh !! sure John Chow)

2. Glen – – http://www.viperchill.com/
Makes money from his blog, amazon and other projects . Has a wealth of seo optimization information
I recently tried his opt in membership plugin without much success and some precious real estate taken up on mu blog but then found out that i can get members more by just making my request more visible on blog on popular posts and making the request more actionable and so now don’t need his plugin. But his Blog posts are AWESOME so yeh ” look it up “
3. Michael Gray – http://www.wolf-howl.com/
Michael blogs about a good mix of everything like SEO, driving traffic , Blog optimization and more. I like his blogs name “wolf –Howl” and he always has excellent images to go with his post which makes his blog look so good.

Had to put in fellow aussie blogger “Darren Rowse” on this list, he not only has quite detailed posts on how he started earning his money online from his forums , but also detailed posts on how he earns money from his blogs , amazon and how he drives traffic , build memberships and makes money from affiliates.Dig deep into his blog to get a wealth of information.
4. John Chow – http://www.johnchow.com/
He used to publish interesting stuff that really helped making money online, blogging and does that now only once in a while ,in the meantime he is just flogging stuff , software etc from his website.
5. Shoemoney – http://www.shoemoney.com
I used to follow shoemoney quite fervently 4 to 5 years ago when he used to blog quite useful and details posts on makingmoneyonline , making money from AdSense , Adwords strategy and blog optimization , but now he just posts pic’s of himself with good looking chicks and occasionally writes some detailed informative posts on SEO and other stuff as mentioned above.
