Just wondering, how fast (on average) can you guys earn $100 with adsense? I month, 2 months, 3 months, or 1 day, 2 days, 3 days?

Mubarak, you say 70% of your visitors are not clicking on your ads. So you have 30% clicking your ads? A 30% CTR sounds more like a fraudulent click issue than the previous posts of people getting $200 a day :-)

Yet in this thread you say you are getting low CTR: [webmasterworld.com...]

Hmmm.

I think what you are looking for is a magic formula. It doesn't exist. Webmasters here who are making decent incomes via Adsense, including me, haven't reached those incomes by accident. People can help you if you post specific questions like "which location of ad is most productive?", not general questions like "how can I make millions?". There are no simple tricks that will suddenly make you a millionaire. If we did have one of those why on earth would we tell you? A secret like that would cease to be a secret if everyone knew about it... and it would stop working. Now why would we give up our incomes just so you can make more money? :-)

Work on developing your site and the income will follow. If all you are seeing are $$$ signs then your vision is affected, get that mended first. I hate to break this to you but it's unlikely you'll ever achieve and hold 100% CTR.

More than a third of what you suggest in one click...

nicebloke,
that would indicate that G is paying you more than 66% of the amount they receive per click. Am I correct?
Other people reporting commissions rates that high?

I'm not surprised of hearing about 60% commission rates from Google.

After all, the minimum bid for AdWords is 0.05 USD (correct? It's 0.05 EU for me).

The minimum CPC is, AFAIK, 0.03 USD.

0.03 USD is 60% of 0.05..

Whoa, back up. I think nicebloke was simply talking about earning more than a third of the $100 figure mentioned (i.e. $33) in one click -- which sounds possible, although rare.

Jenstar, $100 in 12 minutes would be around $80,000 a week.
Do you really think sites there are sites breaking 4 million a year using AdSense?

Blue_Fin is correct - not in all 12 minute periods, but definitely in some.

> so, please tell me how can i get some good visitors which will click on the ad.....

Change your website navigation so it looks like adsense adverts, and put it right above or right below your adsense leaderboard.

I've heard that works pretty well, though you will be sending a lot of your visitors somewhere else, if that matters to you.

During the "best of times" (pre-Florida) it used to take me ~42 hours, now it takes ~72 hours.

Little more than 2 weeks for me. Not great - but it does pay all webhosting and DSL bills. :)

Just wondered, out of those of your earning $100 a month or in less time. How many websites do you run adsense on?

Pre-Florida, or post-Florida? It takes quite a bit longer now than before. Oh well, that's how the states roll.

Just one.

I'm in the jimh009 bracket - it pays for the cost of a dedicated server (with more than just this site on it) and buys dinner a couple of times a month.

Which is more than I expected of it.

I know at least one non-adsense site makes about $400,000 per month from a program which makes most sites less than $100 per month. That is what we call a "high outlier."

I would love to know what they make from Adsense.

I have it on two sites and not many pages, so it's taking me 3 weeks at the current run rate. I have a lot of content that I have not yet enabled.

I am looking forward to the new interface to find out which pages are paying the most. Sometimes I have a 1-click day and it earns more than another with 4 clicks.

I get an affiliate newsletter from a chap who is in poor health now (you may know who I mean). I found it amusing that his case study about another guy who makes 2000-3000 a month still credits a different affiliate scheme for his "success", but when you visit the site, it has nothing but AdSense ads on it!

We've discussed this at length in the past, but it's very unlikely you'll ever see AdSense reporting by page, although it's likely they will report by site at some point.

About 25 domains.

Every affiliate program has some people that makes a nice income from it. For example, I'll be geting a nice check from Amazon.com. I'll earn over $7,500 this quarter, and this requires people to actually order stuff, not just click a link! Though next quarter looks like I'll make more from Google than Amazon.

Log into overture and type in some terms and see what the bids are there. Generally, the bids are on par with Google's ppc.

Just follow the money. What are big ticket, highly lucrative and competitive niches.

Legal Services, Financial Services, High-End Consumer Electronics, all are good possibilities for a publisher with the appropriate content.

I make a couple hundred a day from adsense, but my content is not a big pay per click. The reason I do so well is because I get 20,000+ visitors a day and adsense ad is on more then 15,000+ pages throughout my website. Even though my CTR is very low, the money still adds up fast.

My suggestion to people is to make a website that is very content rich and useful to people, something you enjoy. The visitors will start coming and so will the money. A good useful website will grow every month and eventually get large enough it will feed off it self. It does not take long to grow a website when done right, the above website only been online 7 months.

I hate to hear people making websites just for adsense, in the long run they will never amount to nothing.

OK, I have been lurking around for a few weeks now, and this is my first post. Great topics and a lot of sharing going on here. It reminds me of the old days, when we were all learning to make the internet together.
I just started with adsense in Mid December and it took be about a week. However it has taken me five years to gain the 2000 unique visitors per day.
I agree with dnbjason, if you make a site that is of intrest people will come.

Not very specific - between 3 to 5 days to make this amount. I only run one website with AdSense.

I've been on SlashDot two times, and although there's a high number of impressions, this is when CTR is lower - people are there to read the article, not in sarch mode :(

When I have the normal traffic (around 20,000 page views/day) I have a more standard CTR.
