I don't mean to pry and certainly hope anyone who feels uncomfortable sharing this info simply won't do so. I'm just curious about the range here. I've seen lots of great advice here from webmasters of sites large and small, so please share and share alike if you don't mind and don't think the size of your site matters (it's how you use it ;)).
Also, what genre is your site oriented to? (i.e. entertainment reviews, news, community oriented, contests, blogs, etc...).
Obviously do not give out your website name or URL as that's against this forum's rules.
I'll start: contest site with 100k+ daily visitors.
The anonymity of it all actually facilitates honesty, since there's nothing to be gained by misstating facts.
Unless, of course, you like to lie to yourself. As far as I know, this isn't a p*ss*ng contest.
Because much of it has search results, I'm unable to place adsense on any of the search pages, so the income generated from adsense is not much to speak of.
main one, education site, 5000 visitors a day, 20,000 page views
second site, history presented as current affairs site, new, 100 visitors a day, 500 pageviews
third one, site I made for my school in Italy, 20 visitors daily, less than 100 pageviews a day.
Business Resources Site: 200 uniques per day, 500 page views per day.
What I think is a crucial question, which has been missed here and makes a huge difference, is how long have your sites been online? A new site just published and indexed will never get anywhere near 5k to 10k uniques per day. It is gradually built up over a year or two (unless you have big wallets to pay for links) :)
I offerred a conservative estimate of 100 hits per day because I am guilty (*blush*) of buying traffic from these pay per click services. It started as just an experiment and now I realize it's pointless because it's skewing my logs all to heck. I just hope my estimate continues to be the correct reflection of my site when my traffic once again comes from only "pure" sources.
Automotive site, started about 6 weeks ago. 400 pages per day by 100 unique visitors. Stats exclude all bots and my own activity :)
This thread is a great confidence booster, when I see guys making 100k page views a day I look at my CPM and start to plan my retirement!
