If there is enough traffic and advertizers available for your site pretty high income is possible.

Yes, we all want to share our Adsense secrets with you! That way we won't make as much money!

Is hard work and dedication a "hidden strategy"? Why do I have a feeling that's not the answer you wanted to hear?

Just to name couple of persons who have earned over $100,000 in a month with Adsense: Markus Frind, Kevin Rose, Jeremy Schoemaker, Jason Calacanis... Just search for "who makes most with Adsense" (or something similar) - lists.

If you already have a site that can generate that much money you wouldn't need to ask, if you have a great site idea that can make that much money, then you need to invest a lot of time and money to see it through, if you're just fishing for ideas, good luck.

Why not? Just spend $132,994.98 on Adwords. ;-)
Or, looking at it from a different POV:
$132,994.97 = 1,329,950 clicks @ $0.10
At a CTR of 5% you just need 26,599,000 page views.
Getting that much traffic is the secret.
Then again, at $0.01 per click and a CTR of 1% you need, er, 1,329,949,700 page views.

It is possible but you would need a lot of traffic per month. It would take a lot of hard work.

|The truth is that I need such paycheck. |
So you owe someone that amount and need to make it quick? Then look elsewhere. If you are starting from scratch, you would need to work 16-hour days both building a site or sites and researching ceaselessly, and if you were smart and lucky you might get to that level in a year or two.
For better odds at eventually earning a paycheck at that level, consider medical or law school.

|I am still in doubt of the possibility of a webpublisher cashing in a pay check of $132,000 plus from Adsense in a single month. |
I've got a buddy in Roswell, New Mexico who's convinced that AdSense has a monthly earnings cap of $131,999.

|Adsense Gurus please, is it possible? If yes, How? Is there any hidden strategies that can make that happen to a publisher? |
You really think a business making 100K / month would be based on a few tricks and hidden strategies, and not actually having one of the best web sites in the world?
The only people making that much money without some worthwhile product or idea are spammers and other criminals.
|The truth is that I need such paycheck. |
Really, I have to wonder who actually goes in a forum asking people how to become a millionaire. If it was that easy, everybody would be rich.

This thread reminds me of one about 6 years ago on Amazon Associates where someone asked how can I make $600 and will Amazon pay me tomorrow?
The sad part is it was a single mother and she was dead serious.

For the first time since I first put AdSense on my site I did a search something like that a few minutes ago. I guess I just wasn't curious enough before.
The lists I found seemed out dated. And the earnings they mentioned weren't all that high except for a very few publishers.
Were/are there really so few publishers making over $10,000.00 per month? It seems like that income wouldn't be so hard to come by if one really worked at it.
I can see $100,000.00 being pretty difficult, as an understatement. :)
How about $5,000.00 per month.... how hard is that?
Lunch time, gotta run.

Used to be a regular feat a few years ago Ken. A walk in the park.

in case you are serious, I do not think it has become much harder. the inventory has become much better which increases CTR which in return makes you more money ..

Unless Google is spilling the beans, the only way the people who put together such lists would know who is making more than $10K/month is if the publisher goes around telling people.
It's like celebrities donating money to charities. Joe writes a check to a charity and promptly issues a press release so that everyone will know and he'll get mentions in the press.
Betty writes a check for three times the amount of Joe's and keeps her mouth shut. We never hear about it. We get the impression Joe is charitable and Betty isn't.

While it's not against the TOS to state the total of what we earn each month, many of us feel funny about providing those numbers. In many ways they're irrelavant anyway because the most important variables are the ones we cannot share.
If someone states they earn $5,000 a month with Adsense, what would that tell us? Is that good or bad? I don't think anyone can really tell unless the poster is willing to break the Adsense TOS.

C'mon inetguru you can do it, that's what you're a guru for ;-)
Or inetguru= intranetguru?

Wow! What an awesome responses! I enjoy every bit of your comments. This is indeed a great forum to be. In fact, I have started seeing the possiblity of making such buck. Permit me to come back pretty later for more comments.
Meanwhile may I use this opportunity to WISH every christmas celebrant "A MERRY CHRISTMAS and a SENSATIONAL NEW YEAR" in advance. I am in a celebration mode please... Will be back later.

By all means do.

May I ask what kind of traffic is needed for 10K a month?
| 6:53 pm on Dec 25, 2008 (gmt 0)|
I'm getting the dreadful feeling an eBook offer is what comes next ..

inetguru, put your hands to work. The worst that can happen is you building a great website that anyway will make some money. I've read A LOT of how much others earn and it doesn't matter if its true (at the end everybody is only a nickname) what matters is how others have inspired me to keep on the hard work... and the sites work for me now.
So, no matter where you are, hard work is always good for results.

Although i would love to make some witty comment about earhing that amount of money, I will contain myself and just say "no".
Its not the adverts, or even the amount of content you would need such as 100's of not more of pages.
The principle reason it won't happen is traffic. There re many great sites out there with the potential to earn big that just can't get enough viewers.
From my experience traffic takes years to built.
With Google it has to be organic traffic, so any pay programs to drive visitors or and 'click your own or someone elses for money' type schemes will get you banned. Google have an itchy trigger finger and will boot you out with the slightest indication of gaming the system.
So traffic is your limiting factor.
Based on my stats you would need a ballpark 62/63 million visitors a month to achieve anything like that. And 63 million is huge traffic, which would then create its own high costs as in servers and bw.
For example Digg.com *might* be in that traffic field, but they have been losing money, not making it.

By the way, very odd number you picked.
| 9:28 pm on Dec 25, 2008 (gmt 0)|
Stout, google the number...
| 9:37 pm on Dec 25, 2008 (gmt 0)|
Here is diggs situation. Even they are not in that ballpark.
For a site that gets as much traffic as Digg.com does -- 22.6 million monthly uniques, according to Quantcast -- the numbers are gruesome:
* Last year the company lost $2.8 million on $4.8 million of revenue
* In the first three quarters of 2008, Digg lost $4 million on $6.4 million of revenue.
* Digg wanted to sell for $300 million last year, but took funding this fall to set its valuation at $167 million

|By the way, very odd number you picked. |
There's a guy on the web with a pic of himself holding up a check for said amount. Smart money says that the guy either manages multiple sites for different people, or Google didn't pay him for several months for whatever reason and eventually issued him a lump payment.

It's not the Adsense checks that matter. It's the net income after expenses that counts. Some of the people that claim to make a lot from Adsense have also spent money on Adwords or other advertising, like TV commercials. Some most likely are flat out lying or trying to inflate the value of their web sites for a sale down the road. Some have many employees, so even though the check is paid to one person, the money isn't that great when you look at it on a earnings per person basis.
Though there definitely are some popular sites that could easily be one man shows that appear to legitimately making big bucks. But they aren't always the ones that advertise it the most, and the one that advertise it the most are sometimes just B.S.ers, who are trying to make money by showing other people how they made their money. Think about it - most people who are really making big bucks aren't eager to share their secrets with others who may become potential competitors.
Think about all of the people scammed by Bernie Madoff and have a healthy dose of skepticism when people tell you about earnings that seem too good to be true.
