    Impressive list! Thanks so much for the mention, it's an honor. -Andrew

    • Josh Roa

      Hey Andrew, I went and checked out your page and I can completely understand why you were added to the list. I like the substance of your articles, different from a lot of other blogs which has completely worked in your favor. And to Michael, excellent work once again! Josh

    • Agus @

      I am just wondering how they can manage their financial and fund their project because to make profitable application they need to prepare some big bucks which is not easy to get if they are teen? what do you think guys?

  2. Blog for Beginners

    Michael You have yet again created a masterpiece article that will surely inspire anyone regardless of age. The never-ending wishful thinking of "I wish I started as young as them" is pretty much inevitable - again. Yan

    Great list you have Michael. I learn tons from your site all the time. I can't wait to read the next interview you do also.

    Excellent. Inspiring especially to everyone. I need to get in the list before next year or else it will be too late. lol...

  11. The Net Fool

    Great list! That's an awesome compilation, and I didn't know that some of those websites were run by youngsters. I am convinced that Joel Drapper is the biggest scam since sliced bread, but other than that great job!

  12. Missy (from G34 Media)

    I'm glad you started your feature with 2 girls at the top. As many times the females are left out. This time they are front and center. Very cool and impressive list, Michael. Well done!

  13. Phil

    Newspapers should report on kids like these some of time instead of just the hoodie stories.

  14. Michael

    Well said Phil! Thanks for all your support guys!

  15. Gerald SEO Tips Blog

    This is very interesting. I just goes to illustrate how much opportunity the age of the internet has brought us both young and old. Especially the younger generation.

  16. David B.

    "Ashley Qualls who is already a multi-millionaire" "60% of her monthly income comes from Google Adsense." I call B.S. On most of these kids actually. Let's see some stat screenshots. That's what a real web developer forum would insist on before taking these numbers seriously. Anyone who has worked in the business for a long time (10 years for me) has seen hundreds, maybe thousands, of kids this age claiming to make millions. Some maybe, most are exaggerating the profitability of their websites. Great work they're doing, I wish them the best, but a 250k/day site doesn't make someone a multi-millionaire in a couple years from Adsense.

  17. Henry

    My site is hosted by Gareth Hodson's hostedfx. This guys smart, very helpful and well rounded guy, he always helps me and my site out and his hosting is great. I was kinda surprised to see him on the list, like woah wait I know this guy lol, but yea wish he was higher on there

    Thanks for the inclusion (4th - w00t w00t!), and thanks David B for being a skeptic, I suspect your concerns about inflated figures may be right. I have stats to vouch for myself, and know for a fact that the top 3 above me are all doing the figures they claim, aswell as Josh in 6th and those in 9th and 10th aswell. Us young'ns. We do a fair bit of networking amongst ourselves, you know! ;) - David Wilkinson

    A beautiful list. It gives this grandma-aged person great hope for the future, and a sense that one or more of these talented entrepreneurial sorts will be heading up at least one of the ships of state. @caseyfern

  25. Todd

    Great stuff! umm where are the interviews?

  26. Stanley Tang

    Great post Michael, especially the person in 9th :P

  28. Allahverdi

    Pffff... Good, good... But i'm younger from all them. I just have 13 :P Wish to be in that list :P

  29. Bill Cawley

    Here's a challenge: To cheer up the rest of us who are more than twice as old as these guys - can you find twenty people who have only made it when over 70? Otherwise we'll all give up - we can't compete with this lot.

  30. Daniel Neri

    Fantastic list!! Funny to see Gareth on there, I was very active on back in the day. Great kid, very resourceful. Inspirational list, thanks Michael!

  31. Joel Drapper

    @The Net Fool I don't know what to say. What about me seems scammy?

  32. anonymous

    There are still a lot of people missing from this list. :) I am friends with a 19 year old who makes $40k/mo from his sites. And I'm 16 years old, and I've made over $25,000 online. So $1000/mo is not unbelievable at all. It's actually not a lot.

    • Wikker

      Sounds like someone has some insecurity issues to deal with.

  33. Ashley

    This is good, these young people are doing it.

  34. Gopal

    This is great. Love seeing young people succeed at such a high rate, and only spurs you to put more focus into what you do best.

  42. Armen Shirvanian

    A healthy sampling of site-owners is shown here, and one should remember that it is not their age that matters, but that it is the direction that they are traveling in. A person that provides value at any age should be supported, so that they can continue to add to the environment of those around them.

  89. Al

    Interesting, however when you look at their traffic levels now they seem to have dwindled. I guess thats down to the fast changing face of the internet. You need to keep evolving and engaging with your audience.

  90. Mayur

    This is so motivating. I started few websites back in 2006 as a project and they are still live. I still don't know why they were not as successful as others. I think it was because i kept changing content and theme of the site. I think i need a help from some successful blogger in setting up things, but that is so unlikely, no one would care to do that, right?

  91. amyh3y

    Young internet entrepreneurs! The right man in the right place and right time. Congratulation...may be I am in the list next year.. :D

  92. Nithiyaah

    Hi Michael, It's great to see more teens are making money from the Internet and this is a very inspiring article to whoever reads this. It will be great if you can provide more solid informations on how they or even you managed to make money in online. This will be a great help for the newcomers. Keep up the good job! May God Bless You & Your Loved One. Take care.

  93. Danny

    WOW! Thanks for the boast, I needed that ;). You can add me to the list once I succeed, by then I will be over 30 lol. CHEERS :)

  94. Aaron Darko

    This is amazing how many young people just like me are doing online. They are amazing. Its extremely inspiring for me and everyone else. All the older people think we are way ahead of them, little do they know ANYONE CAN DO IT!

  95. Joe Boyle

    Nice list you've built up there! I too am a young entrepreneur (I'm only 13), so it's great to know that it is possible to succeed at such a young age. In my opinion, people don't put enough inspiration towards kids running internet websites. We are the future, let us give our views!

  96. Joe Boyle

    Great list you've written up, here. I know almost all of these entrepreneurs (not personally), so it is great to see them on a top 20 list! :D

  97. steve

    wow! Amazing young entrepreneurs! I own my first computer when I was 20!

  98. Mike

    You guys are all amazing for going out and getting what you want. Putting your words into action! Ninety percent of people don't know how to do put a plan into action or have the desire and persistence to accomplish what you did. Congratulations for reaching for the stars. You are the young entrepreneurs of the future. Mike - The Mandura System

  99. Swamykant

    Awesome list .. Amazing work by each one :)

  100. JB

    Yo, Mike! Sites like yours is what's missing from the "real world". People think this is all play-play, but everyone on your list proves that brains and a good plan-of-action can conquer all. YOU as well as everyone on your lists, prove that a deviation from the normal "slave-to-clock" mindset is what it takes to "really" be a financial success. I'm launching website(one of several) soon and hope to one day make a list like this one. OH, and you should put yourself up there too,bro. Great site,props, peace!

  101. Rick Ong

    Inspiring. Why don't you do this in a series? Perhaps something like Young Internet Entrepreneurs Under 21 of 2011...

  102. Charles Paxson

    Great example of the Entrepreneurial spirit. It is in your blood no matter what age it comes out. The internet has just given these individuals an outlet that is not so restricted by age. Indeed inspiring.

  106. Harfiz@Bizstudent

    This list are truly inspired me! I hope that I will become in the list too, someday :)

  107. Internet Entrepreneur

    The difference between these entrepreneurs and most, is the determination and willingness to take action and make things happen. Good ideas are a dime a dozen. An entrepreneur who takes action can create millionsmany times over.

  108. luke roxas

    I'm a proud Filipino here! I'm amazed that carl ocab is representing my country in the top 20 young internet entrepreneurs. I believe that there are more opportunities for filipinos in the internet especially SEO is on the rise!
