over 10,000,000 page views this month
I wish I had premium!

For a while now never had it ever been so many page hits in any month, except this month.. yes Im averaging 400,000 page hits a day, earnings around 500$-600$ day and I'm hoping to see myself grab over 1000$ per month in time.

What makes me determained to get a premium account?

Simply a bit of reading MyGen now earns over 2000$ day and at the time of being invited to become a premium publisher he/she was averaging just 400,000 page views a day, over 10,000,000 a month.

Let's hope I'm in for the cake.. anyone else a premium like to give me information about this.

You say you make $500-600 a day and then say want to get $1000 a month. You should have made the latter figure after 2 days.

Perhaps you meant $10,000.

Dang, I have the same traffic as you and I'm earning less than half of what you earn a day. I must be doing something totally wrong. :(

very low ctr of like 0.20% and very low value clicks of around 30 cents.

It all depends on the keywords in your site field and how many clicks you get.

This is a great example of how eCPM varies by topic.

I thought a click value of $0.30 was quite high?
I have click values somewhere between $0.10 and $0.20.
Is this very very low?

i'm over 10 million pages a month and on a fraction of those earnings :( it all depends on what you do.

I Will Make It - that's the point of my post. I get a fraction of greedy's traffic, but my CTR is an order of magnitude (and them some) higher. The topic has a lot to do with the CTR.

Depending on the topic, 10 - 30 per click is a lot, but to others this is too little. Again, the topic drives the click price.

With earnings of $500 - $600 per day on 400,000 page views, the eCPM is less than $1.50 for greedyplayer. I know of websites with eCPMs in excess of $30.

I would also doubt that Google uses just one criteria (pageviews or dollars earned) to determine if someone is premium.

I would also doubt that Google uses just one criteria (pageviews or dollars earned) to determine if someone is premium.

One of the criteria could be whether Google thinks the features that go with a premium account (keyword hints or whatever) will significantly improve revenue for the site in question. A newspaper or general-interest portal obviously will benefit from such features, but a niche site that already has good targeting might not.

400,000 impressions per day
30 cents per click
ctr of like 0.20%
you said you make $500 - $600 a day

doesn't add up.

400,000 impressions x 0.2% = 800 clicks x 30 cents per click = only $240/day

I don't wanna brag about anything,
but with 250,000 impressions I make same money as you with 10 million impressions.

actually, with 250,000 impressions I make more than you.

Because, your 10 million impressions x .2% = 20,000 clicks x .30 cents per click = $6,000

I make much more than you with only 250,000 impressions.

Sorry, but you're the one who needs to go back and read.

What he meant that a low CTR of .2 is and .30 cents per click is what could be causing me to earn less than half of what he earns even though we have the same traffic.

Yes, and someone else probably makes more than you do with fewer than 250,000 impressions. So what?

>yes Im averaging 400,000 page hits a day

But, In what arena?

In real estate that number of hits is worth about $20K per day, in porn that number of hits is worth about $5K per day, in webmaster forums it might only be worth pocket change :(

If you achieve this traffic Google Adsence or any other marketing program of this type is not your solution. You need to cut out the middlemen and do business with the end-user.

Reason why figures don't add up toldan is of course the rules here at webmaster world is not to specificaly talk about your clicks, views, ecpm, earnings, so of course theres going to be a problem when working it out mathamaticaly (think higher in clicks,views and you have your figures)

Now i'm not greedy, my name is just ironic that's all... we'd all like to earn more (of course) but happy if we earn a single buck because it's an achievement correct? I'd love to learn how to earn more out of my traffic, but CTR is not so important for me, the lower CTR the less traffic leaves your page and the more repeat traffic keeps your site running good and very active.

Personaly I doubt anyone really cares but It's a shame that the only way I'm going to earn more is if I drive more repeat traffic / increase click value.

So what should be done to increase such areas? Anyone got any ideas? (I've tried to target keywords based on my niche on adwords but that makes no dramatic difference).

PS. publisher account would be good for security.

Better show me where in the TOS or the Charter that rule is, because that's news to me.

...the only way I'm going to earn more is if I drive more repeat traffic / increase click value.

Repeat visitors are there for your content, not the content in the ads. New visitors who are there for the content that is in your ads, and not the content that is on your page, are what counts in terms of earnings.

Repeat traffic has little or nothing to do with the value of a click.

So what should be done to increase such areas?

Nothing because those areas don't matter.

In any case, unless you live on Neverland Ranch, I can't see how you can't eke out a satisfactory standard of living from the $600/day you claim to make. What makes this post even more weird is that $600/day isn't enough. But even if you're in the UK as you claim, $600/day should me more than sufficient to sustain a person.

It seems like you don't know what you're doing in terms of AdSense, which is why you're asking here, but that isn't stopping you from claiming to make $600/day (not saying you don't earn that much, just saying that you're claiming it).

Basically, I'm just trying to understand what this thread is about.

Repeat visitors are there for your content, not the content in the ads.

That's true of any visitors (repeat visitors or not). But in any case, repeat visitors are extremely valuable on the right kind of site. On a camera-review site or a travel-planning site, for example, the repeat visitor is likely to be (a) an enthusiast and (b) researching how to spend his or her money. So the odds favor the user noticing and clicking relevant ads and--just as important--being buyers or at least "warm leads" when they click through to the advertisers' sites.

To use an obvious example, think about a camera dealer's ad on the Web sites of CNN and POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY Magazine. The POP PHOTO reader is far more likely to click and buy than the CNN viewer is.

Some say 'Page hits' others say 'impressions' in this thread.

Are we all talking about raw page hits and raw impressions or unique impressions?

My site is small compared to what you guys are talking about (2-3K pageviews/day) but using Google Analytics I've found that my repeat visitors are about 50% more likely to click my ads than new visitors.

I think it's because some of the new visitors from search engines aren't as well-targeted. For example, I've got a page of desktop background pictures related to my niche, and I get quite a bit of search engine traffic for desktop backgrounds, but it's not niche-specific. The ads on that page relate to my niche, so the CTR isn't great.

Repeat visitors, on the other hand, know what my site is about and are probably interested in the niche (and the ads therein). So it makes sense that they click more often.

I have to agree with Troutnut... When we get high traffic days, maybe from a new article being published or something our adsense income doesn't increase that often... I think our biggest adsense supports are people whom re-visit the site....
1) they know the site and can find it again...
2) they where looking for something....
3) adsense showed them womething of interest..

Number one rule is the web changes fast... don't sell your visitors short.... give them good content and they come back...

Do you think Yahoo has being a solid 1# in traffic for getting search engine traffic? They presented good content and get repeat visitors which is why i don't even think twice about clicking an ad that interest me, but on a new site.... I think ow wait I need to book mark this page, then like a fly on crap.... something else catches your eye.... and you forget to click....

people these days are making sites for adsense.... you should make a site for visitors.... they are the real money....

You can earn much more than you are earning right now. It all depends on the topic of your website + ad positioning. Check your PM, I am ready to help.
