Does anyone know a 'friend' who makes more than $10K a month?

Just curious to see what kind of levels one can reach with adsense. And since stoopid G doesn't allow disclosure of Adsense details... I'm just wanting to hear ballpark numbers anyway, sort of a pep-talk.

mid $X,000 to $XX,000 would be extra damn good money for someone to make. Does this sort of money only come to the likes of giant well established sites, or can it happen in the right industry?

It can happen in the right industry. There are many publishers who are members here that are in the coveted and informal "Fedex club" - those who make more than $10,000 per month. And I am sure few of them are in the same industry.

AdSense checks over a certain amount are delivered by FedEx, rather than regular mail.

Adsense checks over a certain amount are send via fedex.

based on the amount I have made at times with the effort I've put into it, I bet there are a LOT of people who make $10,000 per month. (and I don't...)

There is also a UPS club (the ones with the brown trucks)

There are bound to be a few in this forum, but those getting greater than 10k can't be a high number. From memory Google gets about 1 bill in money it receives, but I am not sure how much of that is for Adsense.

At 10k, this is 120k per year. 9000 publishers at this amount would use up all the income. Now there are many publishers who earn big bucks, so this would cut down the number earning over 120k. At the other end, there are plenty earning less than 10k, so this would cut down the Fedex club even more.

Then there are the ad networks who would chew up a large chunk of the budget too.

My guess? Less than 1000 publishers get over 10k, and under 100 get more than 40k.

I'm really proud to be a member of USPS Club making over $100/month, however becoming a member of FedEx club would be an honor, can I join? It's possible in a few months :)

9000 publishers? Where did you find out about this?

If there was a deciding factor in whether I should apply for AdSense this is it.

I love clubs.

9000x120k = 1 bill. It doesn't mean there are 9000 publishers. It means there can't be more than 9000 earning 10k.

$1 billion. Is it in the SEC report? Or am I missing something?

But is it the amount Google collects from advertiers in total?

darkmage, from what I have seen I believe that *any* publisher who puts in enough effort and who strives to publish quality, original content can hit that $40K figure. Granted, they might not get to publish on the subject of their choice, but there are many subjects (travel, personal finance, etc.) where there is a lot of money to be made. And I think (as detailed on several occasions in this forum) opportunists can make even more in the short term, albeit with sites unlikely to stand the test of time.

I am a lot less worried about Google running out of money for good publishers than I am with advertisers getting scared off by spammers and scammers. If Google keeps things profitable for the advertisers, both the pool of advertisers and their budgets for advertising are almost certain to increase.

Google's willingness to allow three ad units per page suggests that they have (or perhaps had prior to Sept. 1) more inventory than they could use up with their SERPs and AdSense impressions. That's a good sign for publishers.

Im pretty sure there are a lot of websites that acheive over 40k per month as I may know of a site...cough...that does and I receive no special treatment at all. I would imagine that there are a ton of domains that make over 100k per month.

I bet 20% of their accounts get 80% of the $ they pay out.

That's probably correct. With, IMHO, the 20% primarily representing webmasters who already had decently established sites with an "AdSense-friendly" theme, or who have worked hard to maximize the benefits of AdSense. Or both. My guess is that few of the 20% sat back and relaxed, expecting AdSense to be a permanent gravy train.

Trust me , there are waaaaaay many guys making more than 10k/month in adsense ...

I remember someone posted here some weeks ago that they know a guy making 1k/day with a single site with a single page which just have some funny image! ...Now thats impressive :)

gopi: so you know a guy who knows a guy?:)...

It may well be true, but I'd say that's the exception to making $10k a month, rather than the 'norm' - whatever that may be.

I'd like to see his face if/when his one site one page gets knocked out of the serps...

If you're smart enough to have a site making 10K a month, then you're smart enough to know that site could be gone any minute, and you're smart enough to build 10 or 100 more sites.

Truer words were never spoken. Never keep your eggs in one basket. If you have one site making 10K a month, why not diversify and try and get 10 sites making 10K a month ;)

I'm curious as to how a one page site would make $10k a day. Anyone care to guesstimate as to industry, and what sort of SEO was done to this page? credit cards? gambling?

Now that I think more about it - why would anyone create a single page website to catch all the traffic, rather than a bunch of pages/sites?....in other words, would you prefer a 100 page site making $10k/day or a 1 page site making the same amount?

Rfung , that one page site make 1k/day according to that poster ...I dont think there are guys here with 10k/day in adsense , max i may guess would be 4-6k a day!
