Well, it can really vary, depending on the market of ads your site draws (different markets have different levels of competitiveness, and thus different CPC). But I'd venture to say that you would need around 100,000 - 200,000 page views per day. And of course, this depends on your traffic's willingness to click.
How much you make using AdSense really depends on a lot of variables and not just how much traffic u get. There was a post here a couple days a go where someone was saying they are getting ~$7 per click so you can imagine it doesn't take that much traffic to get to the $100 level in her case. In my case I get ~$100/day on 15k page views. of course things have tendency to fluctuate quiet wildly with AdSense from week to week as well so that's another determining variable.
Extrapolating to some degree (to appease the TOS)... in Q4 of last year I could make $100/day with ~42,000 impressions while Q1 of this year is requiring ~63,000 for the same earnings on "evergreen" sites.
Oddly, the CTR for Q4/2006 was actually lower than Q1/2007 but... the current quarter eCPM and ePC have been severely diminished.
I once thought traffic was the goal but upon realizing my goal... I still hadn't achieved my earnings requirement.
Earnings are the goal! You do what you must to achieve that goal. It may be with just AdSense or it might require a more diverse plan.
Traffic, while important, is just one part of it.
Thanks Chapman Sounds like something to work toward, i know $100 per day wont make you rich , but i have other off line ideas i could use that $100 per day for it :)
So heres hoping that all will go to plan in the next 12 - 24 months.
I am a noob in this game, but i can build basic websites.
>>100,000 - 200,000 page views per day
This really is one of those "it depends" questions. There are many here that have eCPM in the $20 range, so you'd only need about 5,000 page views per day to hit $100.
For me, it would take about 45000 page impressions a day.
Unfortunately, I only get 2000-3000.
|There are many here that have eCPM in the $20 range |
Hmmmm... hands up if you have an eCPM in the $20 range WITHOUT an AdWords budget offset.
Just non-confrontational curiosity!
My average eCPM for the last 6 months is in the mid $40's traffic around 3000 impressions per day, earnings average per day (this month) $130 ish.
Theres other respected members here in the same topic/niche who will no doubt be around the same eCPM figures.
edit reason, forgot about your adwords question Chapman, I DONT have an adwords account, never have, probably never will (hopefully won't need one)
I think at least 100,000 pv and it also depends.
Very enviable numbers wheelie34... thanks for replying!
Guys, can someone make this clear:
when you talk about traffic or page views, does that include the entire website, or just certain pages where adsense is displayed?
I mean it is not possible that you have adsens on every page (welll maybe for some)
for example, when i add a new section or remove a section from my adsense display, my adsense traffic fluctuates like crazy.
SO, are you referring views for adsense, or just overall site views?
It seems that what ever traffic I get - about 2x more would be 'a good amount'.
>>Hmmmm... hands up if you have an eCPM in the $20 range WITHOUT an AdWords budget offset.
My hand would be up on that one...
Another hand up, $40-50 range.
