It's a great question and one that Jim asked of many other bloggers, including me...

"I certainly think that Guy and Seth are mostly leveraging their blogs for promoting their own books, so it may not make sense to distract readers by including ads for other sites. In the case of Robert, Jason and Mark, I think they should definitely consider better ways to monetize their incredible traffic. If nothing else, they should look to include ads for their own companies - podtech, mavericks/HDnet etc. With the traffic levels they have, each could easily make $10k+ per month in advertising revenue. I bet Scoble could add 4 125125's and get $10k each, without too much effort on his part."
