Many people were successful with Adsense program, earning $x,#*$!.xx figures month after month. Other publishers - those in UPS Club - earn even higher digits $xx,xxx.xx month after month.

First of all, I congratulate everyone for their success with Adsense program. I also congratulate myself for endless hours that I spent designing my website, experimenting with ad placements, enriching content and user experience, etc.

There are many successful publishers on this forum, many of them earning tens of thousands dollars every month. The question is - are there any millionaires?

wsp9... Does that mean WW folks get to ride for free?

Indeed it does, Celgins. Indeed it does. Just have to show your confirmation email and we'll have drinks, entertainment, a couple of notable/prominent guest speakers, and of course wi-fi access. I'm a firm believer in giving back to the community and making people happy.

It's been answered over and over again however no one is going to give a freebie solution since there is not one other than to say, yes, it can, and has been, done.

Please tell me how to do the following:

1. Code a really cool site.
2. Optimise to be #1 for over 10,000 popular keywords
3. Get major traffic from all search engines.
4. Layout adsense ads
5. Get 1 million dollars with a "laser".

A detailed step by step guide would be useful. Please email to couchpotato at idontwanttodoanythingmyself . com

Thanks

>Whatever i want, whenever i want, however i want, and that's all i want

The perfect definition of gluttony. Some dude said
'But if you please and pamper yourself, you will hurl yourself over the precipice of bodily impurity, into the fire of wrath and fury, you will coarsen and darken your mind, and in this way you will ruin your powers of attention and self-control, your sobriety and vigilance.'

So, too much adsense is bad for you.

Hi
make 20 websites making $2000 per month and sell them all
i.e 1 website*25 times = value
so
$2000 *25 = $50000 per website

so 20 * $50000 = $ 10,00,000

now you are a millionaire

"I don't think anyone making a million $ or even 1/2 mill off adsense has the time, need, or want to spend on webmasterworld. Pretend that you're the one making a million off adsense. What would you be doing with your time? Tooling around on webmasterworld? Probably not. I know I wouldn't."

I know if I ever made a million a year off of adsence I would still post/lurk around here. Everything I have learned has been because of here. Thats not saying much ATM but I have 3 sites up and I only started in December. 1 of them already ranks number 1 for it some keywords. I also know this is what I want to do because of people on here.

I don't understand why you want to know this information.

If someone shares this information with you they are lying. If they keep it to themselves, it's so as not to draw jealous attention or copycats to themselves.

Think about it. If you were a millionairre, would you want to brag about it to strangers on the Internet? The consequences could be only negative.

Case in point of why many lottery winners end up broke.

I've cashed out lots of Silicon Valley stock options in my days yet we still drive medium priced cars and shack up in the same old condo.

Ya know why?

Those things are all paid for, all debts paid, money in ETrade and CD's racking up interest.

I won't need social security when it's my time to use it but I won't throw those checks away either ;)

Based on the topic of this thread I qualify as long as the word "AdSense" is removed as that's just become a replacement income so far.

a million dollars isn't quite what it used to be. if you are on either of the coasts of the continental US, a million in the bank is no more than a nice start.

I've been reluctant to reply to this post. No, not because I make the coveted 1M/year in Adsense. A while back in the AM forum I posted that it's quite simple to make $1000/day when you know how. After that a few individuals more or less "sacrificed" me saying that I was a liar, that I was trying to rip people off, and that I was all out evil. Wow, that's great. What did I learn? Those who don't believe a million can be made will never make it. In other words, you could lay out the EXACT plan on how to make a million/year online through Adsense and I would guarantee that 99% would still fail or fall short. Why? Because it's not just knowing how it's done, it's WANTING it SO bad that you work on it night and day...motivate yourself day in and day out, and CONVINCE yourself that it can be done and WILL be done.

So, the biggest key to making 1M/year with Adsense or whatever? BELIEVE you can do it, or you never will....

There are 6,000 plus different ways to make money on the Internet you are only limited by your creativity (your own your own), desire (again you are on your own), manpower (it can be rented), and in some cases capital. If you can make a dollar you can make a million.

The most I made in one day from adsense was $800.00+ and then my server crashed for 2 days and my site went supplimental and it's never been the same.

That was with over 60,000+ pageviews.

Iím sure there are hundreds of companies making a million ( per year) off adsense and probably many individuals. I just consider adsense to be another advertiser on my site and the way they have it set-up allows for a site to only use 1 sponsor/advertiser on all your websites ( witch is good ) and wasnít available years ago. I personally havenít made much money from adsense yet but can see the potential. Being a 1 man operation with limited technical skills I was always limited by the inability to properly maintain, manages and change my former websites to get new advertisements on my sites so my visitors didnít become NUMB to the ads. With Adsense that is not such a problem. I ran adult websites years ago and got up to 20k a month after about 1 year of learning. I didnít use adsense to make my money but AFFILATES witch was a pain in the butt and I had to manually update all the add text constantly.. witch I was to lazy to do and resulted in discouraging me from even working because it was tedious.Ö

Reading message boards and learning from successful people and the way the operate was a major reason I was able to go from a few bucks a month to making 20k in about 2 months. Although I was already in the right direction when I was only making a few bucks it took other messages on these boards to open my eyes to things I never thought of. Iím sure many of you can relate to getting tunnel vision with regards to building your websites you love so muchÖ.

Itís very possible to build a website that makes a million dollars a year and the ones making millions may not post what they make but they do post messagesÖ..

If you mean make 1M in a year from AdSense.
so average. $83333.33/month
About $2777.77/day
Each click usually is from $0.03 to $2.00. Let's assume averge $0.6 per click(I think this is still high) You need to have have at least 4630 clicks/day
If CTR is 1.5%. You need at least 308667 views on your site each day.
I don't know much sites can have 0.3M traffic everyday other than search engine.

300,000 pageviews a day is really not that much. I've got two sites that achieve that, and they're just personal hobby sites. then again, I tend to get maybe 5 to 10 cents a click on those two sites... :)

and I'm talking pageviews, not ad impressions.

I don't even work on these sites anymore.

personally, I these two sites for me are just high traffic, low quality. but that doesn't me it can't be done in other niches-- hell, if I was more motivated, I'm sure I'd be getting that much traffic in profitable niches.

Just over 3 cents per second will give you 1'000'000 dollars a year :)

No, that's half a million / year not one million.

And no, its not that easy:
3 cents a click, one click / second = 3,600 clicks an hour, not easy at all.

That's a reason you'll never make it as you don't think it can be done without sliding down the slippery slope to the dark side of the internet and that's just not true.

Anyone with solid search engine marketing skills can pull it off the old fashioned organic way IMO and those without patience can spend some money and do it via arbitrage.

If you can imagine it's possible you can probably make it happen.

If you can't, ah well, then you won't.

No, that's half a million / year not one million.

0.0318 * 60 * 60 * 24 * 365 = 1'002'845

Looks like one million to me (gross revenue, not net profit).


And no, its not that easy:
3 cents a click, one click / second = 3,600 clicks an hour, not easy at all.

Hey, I didn't say it would be easy! I'm definetly nowhere near that amount. But do I think there are other companies and individuals making 3c/second? Definetly! That's only $108/hour (the price of one IT consultant - yes I know, at 24 hr/day and 365 days/year).

So if you were a small web development company employing 10 people you'd better be pulling in at least 1'000'000/year just to pay your basic expenses. Are there any 10-person companies getting most of their revenues from adsense? Are there any smart individuals with good scripts or niche content pulling in 7 figures? I would think so.

I once had an $87,000 adsense day....but they banned me within 48 hours...

Folks making a mill or so a year, a good amount, doing adsense/affiliate type stuff (i really dont see much distinction there - ads are ads). This level is no doubt the exception BUT you can't walk 10 steps at a pubcon without bumping into an "armchair millionaire" :)

<added>

It is a bit insulting as a pro marketer/traffic guy to not be classified as a real business. Personally, I work out of my home office as i am afraid of the public and what they will say about my funny bathrobe, however, we have plenty of help as a company and at times I even consider us "real"....uncle sam sure as hell does :(

Correct DonMateo, I missed one of them 60's up there.
Sorry for that.

It's not that you said it was easy, it is more like what is known as 'fools math' (not you), e.g. Let's sell umbrellas in china, making 10 cent an umbrella profit and selling 1 million umbrella a year to a population of 1500 million, that's one in 1,500 will buy our product, and 10 cent profit, that's reasonable right?
No, because it does not take into account how you can deliver and sell one million umbrellas and if it rains in china in the first place.
