Income Sum being the addition of all the incomes generated by that program, as reported by the bloggers group of reference.
Reference Count stands for the number of bloggers that reported earnings for that particular program.
Average Income equals the total income reported divided by the number of times one program was referenced. Some bloggers reported the use of a program with zero earnings, this was taken into account.

(*)Private Sales stands for independent ads sales
(**)Tips stand for Buy my data collecting robot a Beer type of donations.

What do those numbers actually mean? It could be argued that a sample of 31 bloggers is not enough to pull any hard conclusions, and I'd agree. In my opinion these figures are a good hint about which affiliate programs are really paying the bills for bloggers today.

What do you think?
