  1. Great list of top IM’s around the globe, Kulwant. I already follow Darren Rowse, Brian Clark, Pat Flynn, Neil Patel on a regular basis. But rest of them are new to me. Thanks for the huge list. Gonna start following all of them eventually.

  2. Glen Allsop & Neil Patel will be favorite marketing guru’s. I love their style of work and depth of each and every article they write. Chris Guthuri is a new guy I never heard of, shall be sure to research on his work.

  3. While the list is really good, it is sad to see that no Indians are in this list 🙁

    It maybe that there are some Indian bloggers who are earning equal to them, but they are not vocal about it…..they should, in my opinion.

    • Great point Chitraparna. It’s very sad for us that no Indian is in the list. They might be making money but they are not changing people’s lives.

      Today I was discussing with one of my blogging partner that India is lacking in Authority Blogging. Hope scenario will change in coming 2-3 years. Jane Sheeba have already made great authority and people are loving her.

      I am still waiting for some great bloggers from India. Thanks for expressing your thoughts.

      • Neil Patel is Indian… Dharmesh Shah of is another Indian that you could have included in the list…

        anyway, great list – the ones you have mentioned are all excellent bloggers and I am following most of them for over a decade now,

        Uttoran Sen,

  4. Great compilation. I am sure this list will inspire many people (me included).
    How could you miss out Chandu ( from the list?
    I am sure he is the highest adsense earning Indian blogger at present.
    Chitraparna, you have a point there too. The Indian Bloggers who are actually earning well are quiet because they probably wouldnt want the I Tax sleuths baying for their blood while the ones who are actually not earning well enough go about bragging about their feats.
    Anyways, I dont fall in either of the two categories!!
    Kudos to Kulwant for all the hard work that has gone into compiling this wonderful list!

    • Ambika I don’t know about the person whom you mentioned here.

      Thanks for going through this article and appreciating my efforts.

    • Hey Ambika it is chandoo(dot)org and BTW he is not the highest Adsense earner there are many Indian Bloggers ahead of him, Varun Krishnan of Fonearena, Amit Agarwal of Labnol, and if we do research we might still get few. Tech Bloggers earn a lot when it comes to Adsense. Chandoo might get more revenue from his product sales but not from Adsense.

      • Vijesh thanks for correcting her. Even if they are making billion dollars but they are not helping others.

        I shared true internet marketers only.

  5. good to see an Indian Neil Patel in the list, a couple of these bloggers where not known to me

  6. Who is Seth Godin?


    Nice list Kulwant, I appreciate your effort. I’m a big fan of Glen, and like his work. Daniel Scocco is of course second.

  7. Wow! This is an awesome list! I do know some of them, but it’s great to know more. They re indeed internet marketing gurus as they are making tons of money online. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  8. Kulwant, I think title of your e-Book ‘Blogging Domination’ is inspired from Michael Dunlop’s products na. I downloaded your e-Book and title seemed to me as if i heard it some where but now after reading this post I got the idea. I like Income Dairy very much it only inspired me a lot. Are you also a fan of Micheal Dunlop?

    • I am big fan of Michael. IncomeDiary is the very first blog I came to know when I started blogging. I have booked Affiliate Profit Domination also and going to launch affiliate marketing guide very soon.

      Clever observation. 😉

      • Yup thanks, waiting for your new blog and book. BTW I love to observe the way people blog, and I like your style too. I like your interview series and always wait for saturday.

        • Thanks for showing love for us. Keep visiting us for inspiration as well as new blogging tips.

  9. Great list kulwant. I am a regular reader of DBT and Problogger from the list. I will be explore them soon one by one. 🙂

    • Good to hear that you are already following great blogs. Keep learning from these gurus.

  10. Thanks kulwant ! Great list . Followed all of them ! Pat flynn is my favorite blogger. Derek Halpern is also great. He teaches how psychology helps you get traffic and sales ! They are so famous because they have unique style of blogging.

    • Thanks for being here Gaurav.

      Pat is one of the great bloggers. His income reports are the most attractive part on his blog.

  11. Your blog is very much informative and contains well researched posts.
    Another Nice work, enjoyed the Post Thanks for Sharing!

  12. Kulwant Nagi,
    Thanks for a job well done, especially for finding time to do an extensive research on bloggers. There are still some out there that were not mentioned. maybe we will need to have an addendum to this current list.
    My desire is to surpass these guys someday.
    I just noticed the irregularity in their social media followership pattern. Some are doing extremely well when it comes to Facebook fans but doing a little poorly with twitter. Vice versa.

    • Thanks for becoming one of my loving reader. Yeah, this article took me 5 days to compile.

      They are more concerned for building traffic on their blogs.

  13. your list is really great with these personalities. thanks for sharing and also would like to know about the free blogging guide.

    • Anand, they are true gurus in all sense. Follow them and read the articles written by them.

  14. Some of them I didn’t know, now that I know the URL, I will follow them, thanks!

  15. Wow its amazing to see all the internet marketing gurus all together. I do follow some of them but mostly are new to me. I will surely read their blogs for more knowledge. Thanks for sharing about these personalities.

    • If you are following them then for sure you are doing great in blogging. Keep learning the things and implementing them.

  16. Its so inspiring reading about the story of these successful bloggers.I got so much encouragement from it.

  17. It’s a GOOD list for certain. I follow several of your picks. The only question I have is – why are there no women mentioned? Starting with:
    Mari Smith,
    Ali Brown,
    Joan Stewart,
    Fabienne Fredrickson,
    Amy Porterfield,
    Nicole Dean,
    Denise Wakeman,
    Viveka von Rosen,
    Marie Forleo,
    Ann Handley
    and those are just right off almost the top of my head.

  22. Updating this post

    Here is another name to add to the list: Kulwant Nagi
    Anyone have anything against it? Kulwant while being an inspiration to many newbies, he also makes good money online

  23. Thanks for sharing such a great internet marketing gurus list. It is very much helpful, Actually motivating and very much convincing post. Thanks for posting.

  24. Wow Kulwant, great list.
    I wonder why Moz guys are not in the list like Rand Fishkin.

    Neil Patel, a man on focus. His blog is becoming famous day by day, so as the name QuickSprout. I think he is the most dedicated blogger in the list. He values every comment in his blog, inspite of his busy schedule.
