WealthyGorilla gets more than 54 Million Ad Impressions each month. At an RPM of $5, Dan’s estimated monthly income would be around $270,000. That’s just Advertisements Revenue.

They also have affiliate posts and probably earn another $30,000 each month from those. But, there are expenses. According to our estimates, Dan would have to pay about $1,500 in hosting alone.

Then there are other expenses like paid plugins to improve functionality and such. Adding those should bring his monthly expense to about $5000.

Note: This is an unofficial estimate of Dan’s net-worth. It may or may not be accurate. But, actual numbers should be very close.

When and why did Dan Western create Wealthygorilla?

Dan used to live with his parents in England. He had a 9-5 Job, a car and a girlfriend. A pretty normal life for most, but not him. He wanted to go visit, and explore foreign countries. Then, in 2014 he began obsessing over fitness. After following many fitness and self development websites he got inspired to start his own. He realised that he wasn’t getting the sense of fulfilment in his 9-5 job. So he left that job, focused completely on his website and moved to Bali, Indonesia. 

Initially he used to copy the style of other successful websites but that didn’t work very well. Obviously since he was competing with big companies who probably had dozens of authors while Dan was just one. Eventually he realised his mistake, figured out his own unique style and implemented it. Now we know that people really love it and thus keep coming back.

Dan Western: “Now, I just carry out everything to how I would like it. The name, the logo, the design, the way everything is done. It’s all my personal style, and if people like it that way then that’s what’ll keep them coming back!”


Dan had actually posted an article back in 2014 explaining about his biggest mistake, but I was unable to find a fresh copy of it on his website wealthygorilla.com. So, I’ve linked to a cached copy of that page for you to read.

Which Hosting is used by Dan Western to host Wealthygorilla?

Wealthygorilla is currently hosted on PressLabs and uses LeaseWeb as their service provider. But, when Dan initially started Wealthygorilla in 2014, he probably used BlueHost (UnifiedLayer). Later he switched to SoftLayer’s Hosting with CloudFlare CDN, and then to SingleHop(Now: INAP)
