Adsense working - Question on Growth

Hi, i have a site which has run adsense for 1 year. It's in a niche market receiving around 3500 visitors daily. The site is 5 years old with lots of content and generates $1,000 in adsense.

This is my only site running adsense so I don't have any long term experience with it.

I do have lots of unique content to add but does doubling the size of a site double the adsense revenue?

I guess what I'm asking is how far can you take Adsense?

thanks

It has little to do with AdSense. You make these changes in order to build unique visitors to your site, via search engines and direct links, and to build pageviews per user session.

for sure it's all about content and page views.

Are there any big revenue opportunities with Adsense?
Do any members mke over 5k a month?

Yes. Not me. But it's certainly possible. Some people make much more. (Most make much less.)

I'm well beyond that point, so it is very possible. My advice is to not look at it as a linear path, and by all means DIVERSIFY.

It's also about topic and audience motivation. (Are your visitors researching ways to spend their money? If so, you're likely to do better than if they're looking at photos, arguing politics, sharing cat stories, etc.).

Absolutely, and it's not always a matter of adding more pages, sometimes you can double or triple your money just optimizing the pages you already have.

Doubling the number of pages won't automatically lead to doubling your income, it might, but it's not a sure thing.

We really need a bit more info to give more targeted answers.

Are you using Adlinks (Link Units) as well as regular ads?

Do you have more than one regular adblock on a page?

etc.

Man, thanks for the replys everyone.

no I'm not using any adlinks and just run one adblock per
page.

AdLinks don't work well for everyone, or on all pages, but when they do work well, it can make a real difference.

I use a single 300x250 regular adblock on most of my pages and a 160x90 Adlinks unit. The Adlinks are always above the fold, the regular adblock, is usually at least partly above the fold, depending on screen resolution.

Adding the Adlinks added about 40 - 45% to my income. Needless to say, Adlinks worked pretty well for me, and they can take up very little space.

I would recommend you go with the following AdNetworks to diversify your income. I currently use the following:

1) Adsense
2) Kontera (Ads in text)
3) Amazon Omakaze or Chitika contextual ads. I prefer Amazon because Amazon has a good reputation and is known by everyone. Not everyone knows/trusts Chitika. Chitika has excellent service. It is just a brand thing.

You can now use other contextual ads with Adsense as long as they look different.

Hey, thanks for the tip! That did work very well I add the adsense units to all the pages. Cleaned up the navigation to help spread the traffic around and guess what! jumped up revenue by over 40%.

dataguy - when you say diversify do you mean open other sites in different markets.

Kaizenlog, can you point me to where Google is now allowing other contextual ads on the same page with their ads? Thanks for the great info!

I run adsense on all my pages and it's working fine.

Can you add a banner program on selected pages for the same
niche market using Commission Junction with your adsense.

thanks

Yes. As long as the banner does not mimick or look like an Adsense contextual ad banner.

You could also consider participating in an affiliate program that is related to the content of your pages. This could mean banners. So if your site is about goldfish, look for a gardening or pond affiliate program.
