Cornwall that was my attempt at s@rcasm directed at what was a very stupid question.

(It was also an indication of my, shall we say, maturity.)

99.9% of all Adsense payments would be ok for me ;-)

cool - if you go over the $2000 then please feel free to give me the surplus - too much money isn't a problem for me as I can always spend more.

It may have been a dumb post but I don't see it as reason to make sarcastic remarks to a new member, who may in fact just be trying to create conversation or make some friends on ww.

*especially from more respected members..

I want enough to start my own evil empire and to afford my own "mini me" and a white cat I can pet as I lecture in a nasal voice to the do gooders who try to stop me from taking over the world.

Added--> I totally agree with Import Export. Some people are just trying to make friend and build a rapport with their fellow webmasters.

Anyway lets say that I want to make as much as possible from Adsense and affiliate programs.

I'm still a student and all the extra income is really a nice extra. I still live with my parents so I don't have a lot of expenses so I'm able to save most of my income..

Adsense and other programs do well for the moment but it won't last forever.. So my plan is to earn as much as possible and reinvest it later into other things. Maybe I'll even start up my own company within 5-7 years.

You are indeed right. I withdraw my comment.

kuyu, please try again. Start a new topic. It's obvious this question won't get you any serious answers. People tend to not have limits on how much they want to earn. Those who do have a limit tend to revise it as soon as they get there.

Me too, but it is worth mentioning that these forums are supposed to be for at least semi serious questions :)

I think most publishers strive to be in the UPS club. Who wouldn't ;)

If the question had been 'How much do you want to earn from your non-Adsense earnings per month' I could have come up with an answer - twice as much as I currently earn from my day job. I would then give up the day job.

I regard Adsense as a great bonus but I am very aware that it could end very quickly (repeated clicking by a competitor?) or fairly quickly (large scale click fraud on the whole content network).

I think I am going to log into neopets chat right now... I might learn more about adsense over there than here.

More than last month. Although Jenstar has a point, we'd all like to part of the UPS club. ;)

I suspect that a lot of people don't really care about being in the UPS Club.

Trying to guess a publishers goals is pretty hard to do.

One of the great things about Adsense is that it gives publishers a chance to pursue whatever financial goals they may have for their website.

Sure a lot of publishers would like to be in the UPS club, but those are more likely folks who are at least trying to make a living on the web. That's great, more power to them.

I suspect there are a ton of Adsense publishers who are just glad to get hosting fees out of the deal. These are folks who for whatever reason have a website, maybe it's a hobby, maybe it's a club of some sort, who knows. But Adsense helps keep the cost down a bit and that'sall they are after.

For them, money is not the focus, at least not the main focus. The money is also pretty easy to come by, post the code and wait for the check, that's all there is to it.

As for me, I'm a long way from the UPS Club, and it's definitely not on my list of goals or expectations.

Maybe I could get there with my site, but frankly I suspect the price would be higher than I'm willing to pay.

I've spent the last few days thinking about whether I want to even have Adsense on most of my pages.

I'm not opposed to advertising, affiliate spots, or Adsense in general.

I do want quality.

If Adsense can't deliver that consistently enough, that's more important to me than the money when it comes to what I post on my pages.

Ken B
Good post over a period of 2 years I have tried most things that are possible on adsense within TOS and have tried to suit the amount of advertising to the content i.e. on one site just single small adsense add 234 x 60 which hopefully does not detract from the overall content but provides some income , on other sites I have placed adsense skscraper with 5 adds inside , Over this time I have discovered that income may fall 15% - 25% using minimum adds but hopefully the user experience is improved

In some ways it was a shame when G allowed up to 3 blocks of adds with 5 in each as it encouraged the spawning of purely made for adsense sites with no real content just adds which may well be the thing that kills contextual advertising for small publishers , there will still be advertising available as income but advertisers and middle men G$$gle could become more disriminating , While I agree they should start vetting sites deeper than currently one of the outcomes may be that a minimum traffic level will be needed so hurting a number of innocent publishers

just my oddball view of the world

True.

Edging into the UPS club could be completely undesirable if you pay $20,000 a month in advertising to get your traffic. People often forget that some in the UPS club pay a lot of money every month to get or stay there.

> it was a shame when G allowed up to 3 blocks of adds with 5 in each

I tried 2 x 5 blocks making a 1 x 10 in the rhs column and my earnings actually went down! As soon as I reverted to a 1 x 5 block earnings returned to average...

What did that tell me? I have no idea but on another site I went from a central 1 x 4 horizontal to 2 x 4 vertical blocks and the clicks went up by sixfold!

One thing I do know is that Google's quick statistics let me know what is working and what is not very rapidly.

LOL

I just want to own a luxury yacht (one I could run a large government from).

When James Bond shows up to stop me from taking over the World, I'll just shoot him right away. No clever conversation, and NO CIGARETTES. JUST SHOOT JAMES BOND RIGHT AWAY! LOL
