How Much Have You Earned Since Joining Adsense?
Give us some ideas on how much to expect from Google

 6:44 am on Dec 27, 2005 (gmt 0)


I am now officially a full time new Adsense small publisher after quitting my job. I know that this sounds very silly but I don't think I have anything to lose, because the income from my previous job is very low.

Since joining a few months ago I have not received any cheque yet, because my earning is only approaching US$200. That is a very small income and is not enough for me to survive. But not to worry since I am running about 20 web sites and I only put Adsense on one of my sites.

I am sorry if this question has been asked before or if it is against Google's TOS to reveal how much you have earned. But if it is okay, is it possible for you to tell us how much you have earned since joining Adsense? Tell us the year or month since joining and the total amount of money you have made. It also would be nice to know the average number of monthly visitors to your site.

Anyone here become a millionaire after joining Adsense?

Thank you very much for your input and I am sure the figures would be an encouragement to a new Adsense publisher like me who almost give up on affiliate programs.

Since you have already left your job and doing full time internet business, i advice you to diversify your source of income by putting various ads available for publishers. Regarding earnings I have earned about USD 7000 in last 30 months with my single site and to update you AdSense is not my single source of income.

As you might have read this forum and important threads, I am pointing you to few threads which may help you.

I began AS last september, and expected to received a $250 check this month. My second chech is higher because my site began to be noticed only on the firts week of december. For december alone I have earned $700.

The only one besides me who knows that is the Internal Revenue Service.

thanks ann ;-) the exact figures are never disclosed by me.

Adsense is my only regular source of money too, but Im a bit disapointed. Im working to make more from my visits. Since June, I have made 550USD. Best month was November with 160USD. Here in my country, the check delays 40 days for be funded and they discount 25 dolars for each check. The visits of my site depends, but its around 80-90.000 uniques month with 220000/views!

Good Luck

Unless I'm paying your bills ( which I'm not ) ... why would it really matter what I make? :)


 3:07 am on Dec 31, 2005 (gmt 0)

Between 30 and 40k since March this year.


 4:10 am on Dec 31, 2005 (gmt 0)

I am not going to tell you how much I have earned with Adsense but lets say I am not complaining ;)

Like others have mentioned, I would strongly recommend that you use other forms advertising for your sites. You will make more money and it may be important if you lose your account.


 5:14 am on Dec 31, 2005 (gmt 0)

I've made about $25,000 from AdSense for each of the past two years, and about $10,000 per year from other advertising affiliates.


 6:48 am on Dec 31, 2005 (gmt 0)

Since December 2003 - Over $36k - And not one cent/penny paid out in advertising, all natural traffic.

Between 30 and 40k since March this year.

Mr Fern - I have to say you have done fantastic, I wish I was earning that kind of money at 21. Good luck for the future.


 7:35 am on Dec 31, 2005 (gmt 0)

If they sent out checks every month regardless of how much money you'd made, in about another month I'd have made just about enough to cover the postage stamp.

It's gonna get better though. I haven't really been "trying" to make money. My efforts have been (and will continue to be) writing about things I know something about, and love writing and reading about. With or without adsense or any other advertising, I just wanna have the best danged sites on the internet within my topic areas. To tell the truth at the moment I mainly have adsense because it amuses me to see what the ads wind up being.

I really wanted adsense to also serve as useful links for my readers in case what they were looking for was something I haven't (yet) covered, but unfortunately a large percentage of the sites are pretty much useless. Oh well...some of them are good.


 9:35 am on Dec 31, 2005 (gmt 0)

why would it really matter what I make?

My sentiments exactly.

Mistra, first, welcome to webmasterworld.

Secondly, this place is a great collection of diverse people from a range of different cultures. What's considered a polite question in SE Asia is considered rude in Europe and the US. The earnings question (how much do you earn?) is one of them.

Good luck with your Adsense sites.


 9:45 am on Dec 31, 2005 (gmt 0)

Only a few $1000 since going full time at in May, but the numbers rise significantly each month.


 4:20 pm on Dec 31, 2005 (gmt 0)

From all my income sources since I started to work 1981, AdSense is just going from place 4 to place 3.

By end of 2006, AdSense will be on place 1 in my income hystory.


 12:59 am on Jan 1, 2006 (gmt 0)

Made some cash from it - but it doesn't bother me as it's just a bit of fun and I won't be relying on it anyway. If it pays off, then it pays off - if it don't then it doesn't.

If it doesn't then I'll drop it straight away, as I'm not in this to promote Google, I'm in it to promote my clients.


 1:30 am on Jan 1, 2006 (gmt 0)

Over one and a half years (bear in mind that for a twelve month gap I'm not including I wasn't running Adsense) - ~ the $10,000 figure. However now I have tweaked things - placement, colour, no of ads, using Adsense for Search - the low $thousands a month. Sorry I can't be more specific because of the contract with Google.

However my first month I earned the low $hundreds with it. Now this is the first month I've managed low $thousands . The difference between the two amounts is seventeen-fold (or when you factor in inflation and increased traffic) roughly twelve-fold. Believe me - Adsense has come a long way since 2003!

I'm even thinking of branching out now into both related genres and other sites as well as ways to reduce my tax bill. ;)


 1:02 pm on Jan 1, 2006 (gmt 0)

Have it on my new site since Nov 30th. And have made $2.94 overall..pls dont laugh; I'll make a fortune very soon..:)


 2:42 pm on Jan 1, 2006 (gmt 0)

$2.94 will improve, soon you'll average that per every few days - then you'll get a boost to $5 or $10 per month etc etc.

It takes time for a site to become established.


 3:07 pm on Jan 1, 2006 (gmt 0)

no offence intended but this is a silly question...
if everybody had the same intelligence, same traffic, same web site design and same server,same dedication and work-rate etc; then maybe you could compare, everything else is ridiculously irrelevant.

I already had 30,000 unique visitors a month before i joined adsense and had never even thought about making money from it...i only wanted to cover the server expenses, it was only a month later when the figures increased sharply that i saw the possibilities but my case is unique as is everyone else's in this forum so any comparison of earnings is totally irrelevant and only satisifies the curious, gossips and self-obsessed/insecure.

If another publisher who makes ten times as much as me and has ten times as much traffic gives you his stats, is that going to help you?

You may as well ask the question "how much money can you make working in a job"


 8:52 pm on Jan 1, 2006 (gmt 0)

"how much money can you make working in a job"

Yes but you don't understand for some of us on this forum this is our job. So therefore "How much do you make from Adsense?" is like asking where does a lot of your salary come from? For a lot of people it's not just a hobby for a bit of fun and extra pocket money.


 9:47 pm on Jan 1, 2006 (gmt 0)

Your answer is ludricous and illogical and shows poor understanding of the concepts raised by the initial question.
FYI: I am a full time webmaster, read the previous comments once more and try again ;)


 1:09 am on Jan 2, 2006 (gmt 0)

I've been with Adsense for over two years and have made about $110K and counting.


 9:10 pm on Jan 2, 2006 (gmt 0)

Those of you that have had very little income from Adsense - is it because your web pages have little traffic, or are your visitors just ignoring the ads?


 3:05 am on Jan 3, 2006 (gmt 0)

Those of you that have had very little income from Adsense - is it because your web pages have little traffic, or are your visitors just ignoring the ads?

It'll be some sort of combination of:-

little traffic
poor placement (colours, position on page etc)
visitors not interested in ads but coming to site for another reason - eg information
ad bids being low in that category
poor targeting ads
high proportion of PSAs
only one ad a page
ads only only on a small section of the site
only just started with the ads
high proportion of visitors not using javascript (varies from my experience of 11% to higher proportions)
high proportion of visitors not human - eg search engine spiders etc
too short a time period over which the ads are run (eg running them for hour, day, week etc and expecting huge returns)


 5:58 am on Jan 3, 2006 (gmt 0)

In 2 or 3 years, maybe around $20K. Doing a solid $1k/month these days, growing slowly (slower than I'd like).


 6:46 am on Jan 3, 2006 (gmt 0)

watched my earnings increase over 500 percent from February thru January so I can't complain too much about traffic and earnings being down for the two month Holiday season. :)



 7:18 am on Jan 3, 2006 (gmt 0)

oops! Thru December


 8:33 pm on Jan 5, 2006 (gmt 0)

To those members who find it rude if someone asks your income; you may consider not posting on this thread at all. Or, instead of leaving a rude posting stating, "How rude it is to ask what I make," perhaps go to the next thread altogether.

To answer this excellent topic of discussion - I've made about $2000 so far.


 9:16 pm on Jan 5, 2006 (gmt 0)

My first year: $3,562

My first month: $12

My best day: $99
