Hi,

I have a three month old website with lot of interesting pages and has begun to do well in SE positions. Is there someway I can project my earnings after six months. Does fixing a target of say 50 dollars per day in 6 months seems a realizable goal? I know this is not the right way to go about, but seriously feel that fixing a target can motivate me a lot. At the same time I don't want to get disappointed at the end of six months if I could make only mere 5 dollars or so. In that case I could really reduce my target amount.
Hence any senior member, please advise me - can I achieve the goal with decent amount of work ?

That is a very young website. Don't expect much atm.
As for interesting pages... That doesn't mean that they will earn anything.
Plus, that is your opinion, but it is Google and others that decides.

Is there someway I can project my earnings after six months.


No

And, more visitors does not mean more money.

Does fixing a target of say 50 dollars per day in 6 months seems a realizable goal?


No.
For one, your site is too young.

I have no#1 SERPS for keywords/phrases that show 480,000,000 results. But that doesn't mean it will bring in tons of money.

I know this is not the right way to go about


Correct.

but seriously feel that fixing a target can motivate me a lot.


Then seriously feel about bringing more visitors, content, SERPs. The rest will come. (in time).

At the same time I don't want to get disappointed at the end of six months if I could make only mere 5 dollars or so. In that case I could really reduce my target amount.


Then prepare for it now ;)

Best to expect nothing, then anything you get will be a bonus.

Hence any senior member, please advise me - can I achieve the goal with decent amount of work ?


I very much doubt that your niche will be paying out huge figures per click. You don't have the traffic to get lots of clicks.

Sorry to disappoint, but best to hear it now and not in 6 months time.

I cannot say what I earn per month, but I can say that daily payments can vary a lot. I've even earnt more money with over 100 less clicks. And there are days when I have earnt more when I have had 30% less visitors.

Like I said, concentrate on the site and not the adsense.

Afterall, you are making the site because you have a passion for your subject and the adsense is to help host it etc., and not because you are wanting to make money so you've made a website ;)

Goals are fine and dandy, but try to keep them with-in reason. It's a lot more fun to get farther than you hoped than it is not to get there. Still you don't want to set goals too low either, just try to keep them manageable.

If you are making a $1.00 a day now, $5.00 a day might be a reasonable goal, then 10, then 20, then 30, etc.

How long those steps take is another matter. Don't make one goal canel out the other.

If this helps.

I have real content sites, well established long before AdSense was even invented.

I have NOT substantially updated these sites within two years of the advent of AdSense.

Twelve years later, for whatever reason, my sites are now going gang-busters on Google [read better than years before - if that was possible]. Remember nothing has changed except possibly being turned up another notch as "authoritative" sites.

The only sensible answer I can give to the original poster and others is:

"Devote yourself to producing good quality unique content. Forget AdSense, build good unique sites with content people want to find".

Sounds silly?

I have $100,000's+ of income to dispute that theory.

Don't take shortcuts.

Admittedly I'm speaking of 12 years ago which in internet terms is a few light years of difference.

You want to succeed? Write up a 5 year plan, forget AdSense, forget all else [why does this seem to me like I'm talking to my older teenage grand-sons?]

Anyone can succeed on the internet.

Anyone can succeed with AdSense.

BUT "not" with a site you established last week with AdSense in mind.

FWIW: I recollect back in the early days of the Amazon Board [before AdSense for purists] when a genuine lady asked:

"My car is due to be repossessed, how can I earn $1,500 with the Amazon programme by tomorrow".

True story. Ah! Why I be cynical?

Riches simply don't fall out of the trees.

My best student started

June 2008 start site
September 2008 start AdSense

Since summer 2009 at 500 to 580 EUR a month.

It's a stagnation

Yes it's possible. But you will have to continue participating in the other forums of WebmasterWorld. I can tell you are on the right path because your member profile shows you are involved in different sections of WebmasterWorld. Good for you. :) Here is a thread with suggestions for key discussions on WebmasterWorld for promoting your website [webmasterworld.com].

All the best to you. I think you may have what it takes to exceed your expectations. ;)

Focus on building content and traffic. Traffic doesn't mean money, there are diff kinds of traffic. Having diff websites I can tell you some sites with big traffic earn less (or more) than other sites. Some sites make almost no difference on how much you update the page, so as you can see there are many variables involved.

Sure you can grow big in traffic but my opinion: stay clean. I've seen competitors going big in 3 months and 8 months later their accounts closed. Play by the rules, be clean, as said before, this way you can make good friends on the forums (not if you play dirty).

Try your best. I've been working hard with this for years, the results are good, not what I expected (projected) but anyway this has made me a working man, not a lazy one. Good luck.

The best tips are from IanCP. Too many banner ads promote Adsense as a get-rich-quick scheme and it is not. For anyone that wants to make a real business out of online advertising, it is months/years of hard work (pretty much what one would need for any business) along with keeping up to date on what is happening in the sector. One should enjoy writing, have the skill for it, and willing to work literally full time to turn it into something that will pull in tens of thousands of dollars a year. It is being done by thousands of publishers.

Probable, no. The fact that you're asking us if it is makes it highly unlikely you'll achieve this goal.

Possible, yes. I've gone from 10 cents a day to 200+ in 6 months time. It didn't sustain at that rate forever but it's possible.

Don't shoot for certain money levels. Just try to increase traffic each month, keep adding content, and good things will likely happen. If you invest time/energy into a site people will likely come.

Instead of setting goals in terms of dollars, going by the above simple truth should help me to achieve good heights. Especially, IanCP's words mean a lot to beginners like me.

But however, I would like to post back to this thread after six months from now on what good I have achieved and what bad I had encountered.

I went from $30/day, to over $200/day in about 6 months, but I am in a high paying PPC market. You should choose your niche carefully. If you spend months developing a web application about lawn care, you probably won't make much money.....regardless of your traffic.

Also....the way you build an application whose funding is from direct advertisers is different then it is should you want your main source of income to come from Google. I would read Google's TOS, and help boards before your sit at your computer for the first time.

Make use of today's sophisticated sql dbases to manipulate and change content. It will help you rise through the rankings, and drive more traffic to your site.

Use both static pages, and dynamic pages. You will cover all of your bases, and develop an application that is easy to maintain down the road.

Its possible.. sure.... but you have to work at it.. I would think of it as a longer term goal. There are people, myself included who make a living at it. Projecting earnings nope I cant do it...

And was that a brand new site with little traffic, no website building experience, little/no SEO ?

Or was it an establisted site, with good traffic etc ?

Okay, that will be the same with the OP. But your income was within a year, whereas the OP is six months.

I do have some experience in web site building and SEO.

The OP doesn't... hence the OP will not be getting $50... more like 5-7$

Plus, the OP has a problem taking money from Adsense, or rather is "somewhat against the concept of getting paid for clicks."

:) I can be against the concept of getting paid for clicks. But does that mean, I am going to resend the adsense checks? This is the way of life. Have to live with it. :). Also if I am going to achieve my goal or at least if I am able to get closer to it, who knows, I might become a FAN of adsense.

Who knows. You've certainly puzzled me. One minute you are saying that you are addicted to checking how much you're earning, yet against the concept of getting paid. I'd love to be behind you in the bank. I bet it will be amusing to see you argue with yourself at the till. ;)

I'm going to buck the trend here and give you the answer you want to hear. Is it possible to make $50.00 a day with adsense in 6 months when your site is 9 months old? Yes, absolutely, it is indeed possible however very unlikely and you wouldn't be asking us for advice... you'd know more than most in here already.

Give it a shot, it will take a lot of work, luck and most likely new ideas. Good luck.

I think there's nothing wrong if you want to achieve your goal. I will be happy if you'll reach this goal. :)

In my experience having one site and relying on that one site for adsense income may not be the best idea.

My first real site started making over 1k/month about 11 months into it. It still makes decent money three years later but it is up and down kinda like the stock market.

If your going to go with one site go big or make different sites with quality content. I have learned to go for the low hanging fruit after building several larger sites in competitive areas. I have smaller sites that make just as much money as the big ones, and took half the time, money and effort.

You will get better over time. In my case a lot of time, money and hours learning what works and does not.

Lame Wolf pretty much summed it up, except I dont have a passion for any of the subjects of my sites, I hire writers that have a passion to get paid for good content. My passion is to make lots of money online :)

There is risk and reward online, no risk no reward.

That is a good piece of advise. Having several small sites instead of having one big one seems to be the best way to reach my goal. And yes hiring writers could be a good investment with returns. I am going to think of that also.

Afterall, you are making the site because you have a passion for your subject and the adsense is to help host it etc., and not because you are wanting to make money so you've made a website ;)


That is a golden rule to avoid Adsense disappointments. :)

 10:35 am on Mar 4, 2010 (gmt 0)

Yeah filbiz, I too agree on that. But consider my scenario. Though I am new to web development and SEO, I have good knowledge in specific areas in health, finance, fine arts etc. Atleast there is a scope to launch 5 to 10 small sites for these topics. However wouldn't it be better to start with areas that could pay high for me. For example, I could choose finance topics to start with. Passion is passion, but money can motivate to keep up the passion. Am I not true ?

But health and finance are *way* over represented as far as AdSense sites (on the high and the low ends) so unless you have something special to offer in a particular sub-niche, you're going to be fighting with a lot of other people (who were there first) for mere crumbs.

$50 a month in 6 months, $100 in twelve, $150 in 18, $200 in 24, $250 in 30, $300 in 36 etc. So why isn't every Joe Bloggs making his fortune doing it? Because only a tiny % actually achieve it. Are YOU that tiny %?
