My biggest site is now up to just over 4 million page views per month. Looks like a long time until it is anywhere close to 20 million. That site has been up 9 months now.

250,000 page views per month.
Long, long way to go.....

I play in a different league: the one where families get to the stadium every other night but just because there are fat hot dogs, warm beer and fireworks at night, nobody watches the game anyway.
Means: all 10 sites that I got live now account for 150,000 unique page views, the best site pulls in 50k.
Far ways to go...

I have 400,000 page views per month, and the site's been up for 12 months and one week. I get 70% of traffic from Google, Google News and since last week Google Images.
The other 30% from links. If I could get a little bit more :)

Does Google News help a lot?
And 4 million page views in 9 months!
You must be good!

500-600k page views my network of sites, online since December, 2002.

Does Google News help a lot?
Yes. The articles posted on my site get to Google News in around 8 minutes, no more than 10. For example, soon after I posted the news about the new worm e-mail. It was the second one on Google News this morning (NZ time) and the site had more than 1000 visitors coming from Google News, in a short period after this.
Note that they do not get all applicants. They don't get blogs or aggreagators. In summary your main content has to be news.

Need about 1 more year of growth to hit the target.

Not really... because I have seen hardware reviews on Google news.
| 10:25 am on Jan 27, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Oh, yes... My reviews go up there too. What I mean is that it should be original. Not a simple news aggregator...

Freitasm, have you sent an e-mail to google to spider your news section? How did google find you?
| 12:17 pm on Jan 27, 2004 (gmt 0)|
700K per month. Long way to go.
| 3:47 pm on Jan 27, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Wow, 4 million a month. I'm impressed! I would be happy with a million ... in fact, I would be happy with half a million! If you have any advice for us, I'm all ears ;)

7.5 mil/month and rising
I need 2.66 X

Pageviews that register in adsense are 1.8 million/month up from 900k last month.
| 5:58 pm on Jan 27, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I give adsense about 3 million impressions now.
I could add two more sites to bump it up to 17 million per month, but it's not enough anyway (even if I am quite curious) and I don't want to clutter the pages on those sites at this time.
| 6:06 pm on Jan 27, 2004 (gmt 0)|
What kind of special treatment do you receive if you hit that elusive number of 20 Mil?
Is it really worth it? Does anyone have actual experience?

Off-topic: yes, I sent an e-mail to Google asking for consideration for the news. Took me six months to be accepted.

I'm a way off that in page impressions, however I deliver a decent number of searches and clicks to both adsense and our ppc supplier, however we are UK based so I suspect our traffic is going to be a lot lower that US targetted sites.
Does anyone have any UK figures they would like to share, I feel we are not far off being considered a "big" publisher in the UK with our PPC partner and wonder if that figure would be negotiable with google if you are a regionally based site?

I would imagine Google would only be interested in single sites that have 20 million page views rather than a network of sites that collectively have 20 million page views. Although they'd probably make exceptions if the sites were of a similar nature.
| 10:32 pm on Jan 27, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Personally i think the 20 million pageviews isn't a good indictor. Whose to say that a site having forums with 30 million pageviews a month with a CTR of .001% and EPC of 3 cents is better then a site on mortgages having a million pageviews a month and a CTR of 3% with EPC of $3.00/click.
| 5:37 pm on Jan 30, 2004 (gmt 0)|
hmmm my site that has been up for about 3 months now is getting about 2.25mil/pageviews a month..
I'm guessing in a lil over a year I'll hit that mark
| 5:43 pm on Jan 30, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Markus007, there's no guarantee that a forum with 20,000,000 PVs would be accepted as a "premium site." In fact, I suspect that it wouldn't.
I'm not sure that being a "premium" site has any real advantages if you have a strong niche site with a reasonable clickthrough rate and decent earnings per click. It seems to me that a premium arrangement would be most useful for a general-interest news and entertainment site or other high-traffic, non-niche site that's hoping to negotiate a CPM deal with Google.

I honestly don't know how you guys do it.
I've had learn-japanese.net up for about 4 months, and I'm still struggling to break 20,000 page views a month. I don't have an active forum however.
| 8:54 pm on Jan 30, 2004 (gmt 0)|
3.5 million a month, according to the Adsense stats. Who knows if and when I'll every hit that 20 million mark. My site is only 8 months old.
I'm curious to know if you get better pay-per-clicks by being a premium.

Ibiza: Is all about the topic. For some topics there are 100 times more people interested on them that for others. In fact, for subtopics within a topic the difference can be even higher. For example, lets talk widgets.
A site about world widgets will cover everyone interested in widgets from everywhere.
A site on European widgets will cover everyone interested in those.
While a site on French widgets will cover everyone interested solely on French widgets.
France is still very big, how about Albanian Widgets or even smaller Corsican Widgets...
Now a site for Britney Spears Widgets :D that one will get you traffic LOL

Well, that is dissapointing... I thought my Europe reference would get EFV to spill his traffic figures ;)

I only deleted my post because I got lost and posted a reply in the wrong thread. :-)
