Hi, I just ran AdSense for 9 days. Now that June has ended, I was wondering how everyone is doing in the first month. I made something close to four digit with 120k ad impressions.
Could you guys pls tell what category your site belongs also?

Not bragging here (in case someone is 'jealous' or offended...) Just want to do a survey on how well this works for everyone.

Thanks.

hi irock,

if you want people to tell you their category shouldn't you post yours first? ;o)

I have only been running 3 days so no real figures yet

Works well enough on my niche websites where I'll be able to pay for the hosting AND get a subscription to webmasterworld.com. Win-Win situation.

Anyways, this is just three days into the show. Given that the sites are fairly niche and the ads are fairly few in number (far more than any banner network for sure!) would be interesting to see what the burnout rates are.

The funny part is one of my competitors has a tendency to show up on the forums and umm .. spams them. Now his ad shows up and I make some money if people click on it. Win-Win topped with some irony.

don't bank on it! Worst thing is it's not compatible with Burst otherwise I'd be able to give them more impressions

After 12 days, I'm doing very well indeed. Daily AdSense revenues are matching or slightly exceeding commissions from my #1 affiliate site.

I haven't noticed any "burnout" effect, but I really don't expect that to be a problem on a site like mine. (I have a travel-planning site, so my readers tend to show up only when they're thinking about vacations.)

It only counts if you have served enough impressions as a couple of hihg-priced clicks can throw everything out of whack.

What kind of sample is that number extrapolated from?

Don't forget to read the T & S of Adsense about what you can and cannot discuss.

I am seeing CPM ranging from 3 bucks to 28 bucks... not bad I guess.... But also it changes based on the day of week. Monday and Tuesday so far are the best.

Adwords minimum is $0.05 per click. This means you could get less than that per click.

Of course it depends on the keywords that are shown on your site

Google's not saying what % we're getting and so far noone has ventured a guess. So, unfortunately, trying it is the only way to find out if it's worth it. Even if they told you the %, trying it might still be the only way to know - since the results vary widely among sites.

Lets just say I had it vary between 3c and 68c, but since Google doesnT' tell my which pages attract clicks, I cannot improve them to lead more target to theexpensive pages (good for google I might ad).

My average seems to be very low compared to the rest of this board at 12c, but then again my site covers a WIDE range of subjects and is not commerce oriented. Besides it'S still early and I bet not all pages have even been spidered yet

Knowing the percentage will mean little if you don't know which advertisers will show up. I think you will have to test it in your site to get an idea of what kind of return you will get.

By the way, monday was the best full day in adsense for me, but yesterday {tuesday} was the worst, so that tells you how a few clicks can affect return in a low volume site {under 500 uniques a day}

Google's AdSense program is based on the old-fashioned idea that advertising and editorial should be separate. The publisher creates the editorial content and leaves space for advertising; Google fills the space with ads.

If Google were to make it easy for you to lead traffic to the pages that generated the most income, that might benefit you and Google in the short run, but it wouldn't help the quality of your site in the long run.

That doesn't mean you can't use common sense when selecting topics if all other things are equal. For example, if you're going to review a camera on your photo site, you might want to review a Nikon rather than a camera that nobody has ever heard of--not just because it'll generate more AdSense income, but also (and perhaps more important) because your readers are probably more interested in Nikons than in no-name camera brands.

Hmm its not live as I can see, because there some on my page every 5sec., but OK maybe it takes time to get it in gear.

Another thing, they say on there site:
Please click Add / Edit sites if you would like to add sites to your list.

It could be cool to have a list of which sites I could delete, because where shall I know which companys adds are showen on my page.

zeus

P.s That I dont see any impression, could that be that I use phpAdsNew to deliver the banners or is it just late in the beginning or is even not live stats at all.

P.ss I just removed the banners, it dossent work

zeus: Either your setup was errornous and didn'T work, or you have a serious attention span deficit ;)

europeforvisitors: "if all other things are equal"
Exactly. I have 60000 pages, most very rudimentary and functional, but all could use with a biut of expanded content. No reason not to leat commercial conciderations determine my priority list. After all if people are prepared to pay high for certain keywords, those topis should also be highly interesting to visitors, and worthy of my attention and efforts.

I have to do that work everywhere, but since that's time wise impossible I'd like to start where I get the greates benefit, simple cost/benefit calculation for my time.

Not unreasonable I'd think.

Hi Zeus,

If you are using PhpAdsNew then you might wanna try following::

1) Make sure you use Local Mode for Banner Code
2) Also be sure that you are using HTML Banner
3) Do not select "modify html to track Ad Clicks" (you won't be able to track clicks anyway, cuz AdSense uses IFrame)

I am doing what I mentioned above, and it is working great on my site.. :)

Hope this helps

NeedScripts:

I already use phpAdsNew on my site to deliver other advertising content, but I don't understand why I'd want to throw AdSense stuff in there, too. What are the advantages (and disadvantages) to serving AdSense via phpAdsNew?

What are the advantages (and disadvantages) to serving AdSense via phpAdsNew?

The main advantage I see is: I don't have to update 10,000 pages to input the Ad Code in them. Also, if tomorrow morning, if I want to show AdSense on the right hand side instead of left, all what it would take would be 3 clicks and suppose if there is a good advertiser who is willing to pay good price for that spot then if I wanna show adsense as a top 468x60 banner then it would be still just another 3 clicks. And we are talking about updating ads on more then 10,000 pages with 3 clicks.... Also using PhpAdsNew I can get the ability to show the ads to only specific audience or browsers or country or state or hour or month or limit only certain impressions per day..... etc...

Hope this helps..

Ah! Thank you for clarifying that! Now I can definitely better understand your decision.

My site is much smaller than yours, comprised of just a few thousand pages and only a few hundred with AdSense ads on them. But I do have phpAdsNew on my system, and you've given me some great ideas for targeting and the like!

Thanks again :)
