How long did it take you to get to 100 bucks a day?

It depends on several things namely the genre you are working in, traffic, layout and placement choices etc.

I wish I could give you a better answer but I'd need more info about your site.

I started May 21st, 2004 and reached my first $100 day on May 23rd, 2005. So it took me almost exactly one year.

I thought the question was just a poll of how long it took various people to get to the $100 mark. I'd be interested in knowing how long it took others.

Apologies. You're right SpaceyLacie.

To answer the question, it took me 10 weeks.

I think it only took about 1 or 2 months.

I already had a website that was established (and running direct ads) for several years before I added adsense though.

About 2 year.

Reaching $200 took only 6 months but for the moment I'm having problems to maintain it.

First and most iportant you need traffic a lot of it. The second most important is the content if your content have keywords that will generate ads that cost .02-.09 per click you will be waithing a lot. By contrast if you have content with top paying keywords that can be reach in days or even hours depending on the traffic of your site. No matter if your site have the top ten key words in its content it will mean nothing without traffict. Search in this foreum for SEO and marketing to see how to promote your site. I have used keywords from this list <snip>

Y'all should probably post how many sites you are running to make it a fair comparison.
I highly doubt anyone is bringing in $100 a day off a single site.
Also might consider comparing how much you are *spending* to bring in that kind of traffic in the first place.
Anyone can make $100 off spending $50.

I've barely touched $50 a day (one month way back) and if I hit $100, I doubt I'd be spending time here ;)
But I don't spend a cent in advertising either.

In answering this question, you should probably start counting when you started building the site --no point in saying, "three hours after I added the AS code, I hit $100" if it took you five years to build a monster site and get ditto traffic...

opiapr did you read the initial post?
and why separating traffic from content? content is most important. without content no qualified traffic.
you use keywords from a list to trigger high paying ads. are you a spammer or what? and no cheap promotion for your own purposes here! read opiapr's first post and you know what i mean.. oops, already deleted by admin.

To be fair(I commented that it took me one year)...

I started with a single site that has been around since 1999. That site nows makes over $100 a day(on it's own). When I first added the code, it made about $16.00 a day right off the bat. I don't pay anything for advertising, but I do pay a full time employee now(since July 2005).

My newest site, started 6 months ago, has almost gotten to the $16.00 a day mark(where my first one started) so... since they are in the same niche, I expect that one year from now, that site will also be making $100 a day(on it's own). And, will have taken 18 months.

Between myself and my help we work about 80 hours+ a week writing new content and maintaining existing content. My niche is in the 8-12 cents a click range.

I have 10 completed sites, with #11 on the way shortly. I completed my first one in March, 2004, but didn't add AdSense until about Sept. 1, 2004. Every site has AdSense now.

It took about 8 months from the first inclusion of AdSense code to hit $100/day, but that's not my average. It fluctuates a bit, but I average about $90/day now and have for the last 3 months or so.

I think it's important to note that there is a wide variance between sites in terms of AdSense revenue. My smallest site make the most money, and it has the fewest links (that I actively acquired... can't say about scrapers and that lot). It's a very popular niche, though, without a proportionately high level of competition. Kind of the "perfect storm" niche, if you will. I haven't been able to recreate it... yet. If you can crack that nut, though, sky's the limit with AdSense, I think.

Huh? Are you kidding? amznVibe, You've been around the forum quite a while so I'm amazed to see you say this.

Not everyone uses the 100-sites-each-earning-a-buck-a-day strategy. Lots of people including myself make this kind of money off a single site (without paying for traffic).

As for the original topic: The answers cannot possibly be relevant to your situation, so why even ask the question?

There are a lot websites that were well established and profitable before adsense came along.

As jomaxx mentioned, not everyone pays for traffic.

I have a site that makes over $100 per day without any paid traffic. I'm sure I'm not the only one in this position.

You are very wrong. Many sites make more than $100 a day.

I came right in with an existing site and was earning $250-$300 a day for most of last year.

Then all of the updates and google dancing that site is lucky if it brings in $50 a day. (High content site aimed at homeowners). The site became the victim of scrapper crawling and now is in the 'supleMENTAL results'

So I have diversified and am building small sites that each bring in about $7-$10 a day.

Just keep building, build, build, build

One thing that you will find is that the more you earn the lower your CPC becomes.

One word of warning to all new-commers never, never take your adsense earnings for granted. The adsese road is really a roller coaster and many publishers can fall by the wayside. One minute you can be in the UPS club and the next you are counting the cents. I am wearing the T-Shirt.

It took me about 4 months to make 100.00 a day.. . another 3 months to make 400.00 a day.... and another 4 months to make over 1000 a day. so in just about a year with many sites under my belt I am in the 1k a day club.... next goal is 2k a day... then I will feel comfortable..:)

something wrong here..

as said, how long it did take after putting adsense on your site is relatively irrelevant and misleading.

more interesting, how long the site exists.

my site exists since 2,5 years professionaly and after 1,5 years of adsense on my site, i managed to get over the 100$ hurdle constantly.
would make sense if people could clarify this.
