How much do you guys earn with adsense?
You don't have to disclose if you don't want to
Automotive site

Not to be boastful, I have to say I earn enough that I could make a living from it (I am from the UK), but there are significant monthly costs (mostly paying for quality content which doesn't come cheap with the writers I use). At first I use to write a lot of the content myself but now prefer to do the admin work while outsourcing the content to writers.

I have a job and that keeps me sane. Since I now outsource all the content needs, I would have way too much time on my hands (if I didn't work) and would drive me crazy from not knowing how to utilise it.

During summer holidays I will probably end up going for walks in the park everyday and then going from one cafe to the next sipping tea and coffee to pass time, and while there, logging on to adsense to check stats.

Sometimes I feel my life revolves around adsense. I even log on to adsense quite a few times from work. I think this stems from the desire of owning a very substantial site that you can be proud of so you can prove to yourself and others that you've accomplished something. But it can get dreary.

Automotive area is logical to be a very productive niche, but from my experience is a lousy niche.

The manufacturers don't advertise/sell cars online, so most of the ads come from local shops...

You are right. In theory it would be a high paying niche but isn't. I still make good amount form it because I get a lot of traffic to it, but my main earner is my health site. The cpc is like 4-5 times as much as the automotive site. At least it was until the May crash.

But I do have a couple of private advertisers on the automotive site who pay good money each month so it kind of makes up for the rather lousy CPC.

Not another how much do you make thread, lol, nobody can/will/should answer that question.

As for automotive advertisers they are there but require good metrics to get the attention of the best ads. Advertisers are very specific in the auto niche.

Not enough but I'm happy.

I started before Adsense with little money interest, my goal was to sell websites. Adsense then paid me for what I already have done, that's fine. Then the problem came:

Adsense made me feel more productive, but while you try this and that to increase your numbers (with almost no change), you'll find several months passing by and little results. That's not being productive even as you did a lot of work, is wasting time. Is like rotating your 4 tires trying to inrease your mileage.

Sometimes I feel my life revolves around adsense.

I was there too. Now I try to work more like the old times focusing less on Adsense and more on other stuff. It can be a mental challenge sometimes. I keep creating content but not worrying about studing like crazy its impact on the earnings. Per example I abandoned my sites for 5 months and the earnings had little change, now I'm back to work with a more healthy attitude.

Almost $200 last month. Every penny from garbage sites that I wouldn't show in public. Keyword specific weight loss articles, nonsense like that.

If it's a decent site, the last thing I'd be running is adsense. it makes the site dirty. Almost as bad as the ads I see on facebook.

Besides, dealing directly with advertisers pays way better than your boss Google.

I developed quite a few personal websites years ago, and added Google Adsense to them at a later date. I've never built a website tailored for Adsense, or tried to use Adsense as a serious form of supporting myself (too unpredictable!). However I could live off my earnings if I had to, but only just, as I have two hungry mouths to feed. Still, it is reassuring to have that safety net, as I am self-employed and left my home country three years ago. It's also encouraged me to work and expand my websites when I find the time, as I've found each year my Adsense revenue has increased.

Of course, ideally I don't like sticking Google ads over my websites - I don't like the look, however as it's providing a good source of income, there's no way I'm going to knock it!

I went most of the past winter without logging in and forgot my password. Too busy.

i am guessing that you chaps have massive organic traffic

Mine is all organic traffic. I'm lucky to have first position on quite a lot of keyword searches in the genre my website is in, and have held onto it for years. I think once you build up a good amount of organic traffic, you get quite a lot of free promotion as more and more people start to link to your site without you having to ask about link exchanges or anything of that nature.

I have recently added adsence to my gallery site with roughly 10k visits per month. As we all know photo gallery sites are notoriously bad for monitizing. I'd be happy if the income covered yearly development cost right now.

bit of an adsense noob atm

Above poster. In my experience, adding adsense to my gallery, lowered overall adsense income. Such a pain.

What I have earned with adsense over the last years is peanuts.

That said, it is still fun seeing any of those one page sites I created years ago, getting fifty cents clicks.

For me, it is like finding quarters on the sidewalk and you can't help but smile as you pick them up.

If that were the case Google would have you listed on their taxes as a dependent.

Yes, continous pumping in articles requires constant writers for our websites. That is why i keep that amount out of the profit, and don't count in it. I keep that as a part of monthly investment or cost incurred for my business.

For writers, i prefer Asians, who charge lesser when compared to their English counterpart, and whose language skills are really good. I go for the university grads out there, especially from India.

Are you sure? I often hear the opposite.

Anyone know where I can get a new needle for my irony meter? and others, which are banging on their stops, whilst reading this thread.
