I am considering trying out AdSense. With 1000 daily visitors on a 100 page site, how much could one make, and is it worth it?
The more personal answer is -- give it a shot. It can't hurt?
Because the Google agreement doesn't allow publishers to discuss actual earnings and CPMs and the like you are unlikely to get the answer you want here until you try it yourself.
Common sense would dictate that so many people on this board may dictate checking it out. Common sense taken one step further would dictate that your success will depend on your site's subject matter (is it something advertisers are willing to pay Google more than a nickel to bid on the related keywords) and is your audience likely to click on those ads (i.e. -- not jaded repeat visitors).
But most people tend to be happy, even those running forum community sites.
Hopefully for all of us Microsoft will come out with a sweet ad program and blow google out of the water once and for all.
and is it worth it?
You just signup, and throw a snippet of HTML code on a page.
How much is that worth to you? That might help us judge if this task is worth your effort?
Would $.05 cents a day be enough? $.20 cents? $1? $10? $100? $1000 a day?
All of those figures are possible. The only way to find out which one would you would get is by spending the few seconds it takes to add a snippet of HTML code to your site.
Seems like a chance worth taking to me. What have you got to lose?
Msft. has for a long time now been interested in developing a widely used search engine with advertising. Google did this as well, and ergo, we have adsense. I would not be too quick to count out Microsoft from developing a program and soliciting advertisers overnight.
Google is trying to paste the internet with its adwords ads to make more money. They would love for all publishers to tack on 3 units per page, they have a better chance of making more money. If you think that they do not really want people to use 3 than you have a lot of issues going on. They want to make more money, and shareholders now DEMAND that they make more money. Long gone are the days google could play around with ideas and test the waters for profitability, they have to preform now or management will be changed real fast.
