... if a publisher earns over US $10,000 in any given month, does that publisher automatically becomes premium?

No. They just get their check sent by UPS. You can be $10K a month for a year and not be premium.

But I don't receive check, I am on EFT. That doesn't make a difference I guess.

Where did I get this notion that $10,000+ earners get premium? I don't know. I am confused now.

For statistical purposes, I was earning around $200 a day when I was invited to be a premium publisher.

I guess it comes down to a number of factors:

Quality of clicks
Quality of content
Quantity of clicks
Quantity of impressions

Possibly in that order?

What? Are you serious? Maybe you were invited because 80% of your traffic comes from the USA, right? What beenfits are you getting with Premium Publisher's title? Please elaborate. Thank you.

one more question for MyGen:

How long (how many months) were you earnings $200 a day before Google invited you to become premium?

I was invited to be a premium publisher within 3 weeks of joining adsense, back in august 2005. I have to say I didn't really know anything at all about it at first, adsense was new to me at the time.

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what features are offered to me, the ones I do know of however are, choose your own keywords, set hints on keywords, javascript based ads (giving you freedom to build them as you wish), and telephone support. I'm sure there are other things going on at G, but I haven't a clue what they are! :P

To be a premium publisher you have to have over a certain number of adviews...forget how many.

For some reason I seem to recall 20 million page impressions however that by itself does not gain automatic entry.

Some premium publishers have fewer PI's and some who have many more PI's do not get an invitation.

Money does not equal premium. Think about what you're saying.

That argument doesn't strike me as plausible. I am not saying you are lying, but to become premium publisher after 3 weeks in Adsense program with onlyu $200/day earnings doesn't sit well with me. Hm... Did you have over 20 million page views in 3 weeks or what?

Wow, that's so cool. Telephone support is a big plus. Hope I get invited to become premium publisher.
Please Google, invite me too!

Toldan,

MyGen's story is very likey to be true, if you knew which site he runs (and it isn't that difficult to find out) you would agree.

mygen got the number wrong, he was earning over 2000 a day not 200 a day (you missed a zero off)

I actualy saw a post you made some time ago about how you had earned $74,000 in your first month (way to go by the way)

so im sure you meant 2000 a day not 200 (or that post of yours wouldnt make sence)

regards

Please, let's stay on topic and not ask for specific URLs or comment on someone else's website, etc.

:)

Thanks.

Well, I am sure its the quality of visitors and clicks that get an invite to the premium, I myself have an alexa ranking of 8,211 avg, but that doest guarantee me a premium.

I joined adsense in the last week of July, was taking around $70 a day. August was better, averaging between $120 and $240 a day (incidentily, I was averaging around 400,000 daily ad impressions at this time), until august the 17th when I was invited to be a premium publisher. Implemented all the things they suggested, next day I took $1700. The $74k month was in October 2005, received just in time for a nice christmas ;)

Strangely however, March was a dismal month, earnings dropped as low as $110 a day, and peaking at around $400, even stranger was on April 1st, earnings were $2900 and havent dropped below $2100 since.... Smartpricing anyone? :P

Hi MyGen, could you please tell us how you were invited to become a Premium publisher? Were you contacted by Google via email?

There's evidence of why they invite large volume publishers to become premium. If someone is getting bucketloads of impressions, as you have, but has a low income, then it is worth their while giving you personal service to get the full potential from your site and increase your and their income.

For me, however, I squeeze a quart out of a teacup, so it is hardly ever likely to be worth Google's time and effort giving me premium status - using the pareto rule they need to focus on the high volume sites.

But I'm gobsmacked at how low your earnings can be, MyGen, for your site/ranking/traffic. I'm tens of thousands of Alexa rankings below you, yet from your description of your March earnings I probably earned more than you that month (not April, though)!

I wouldn't put the change in April down solely to smartprice - it was too sudden (smartprice changes can take up to a month to work through). I'd look for other explanations - eg: after a bit of poking around your site, although some pages were fast, here in the UK the site was at times very slow (IE couldn't display the link from the third box at the bottom of your home page - the 'browse' option - it kept timing out). Has something been changing on your servers? Also, I didn't see a single Adsense ad (only valueclick) so I can't comment on the ad volume/placement - but my experience of Google's optimisation service is that their approach is fairly broad brush and some specific/tailored research on your site would probably reap dividends.

I think you must be looking at a different site 21_blue, because I've never used valueclick :)

No wonder I couldn't see any Adsense ads.

I'll go find another tree to bark up...

MyGen,

What do "quality of clicks" and "quality of content"
mean? Thanks.

User Dave clicks an advert, dave scans the advertisers page, then leaves.

User John clicks an advert, John scans the advertisers page, clicks another link, possibly another link, then buys something from the advertiser.

As an advertiser, who would you rather have come to your site, Dave or John? John is a 'quality' click.

Quality content speaks for itself, original, well written content is infinitely better than scraped content, right?

Google states: "If your site receives more than 20 million page views a month, you may be eligible for premium service"

I was averaging around 400,000 daily ad impressions at this time), until august the 17th when I was invited to be a premium publisher

400,000 page impressions per day equal 12,000,000 page impressions per month.

It's still does not meet the minimum of 20 million. Hmmm... Google kinda confuses me.
