100 clicks a day and making peanuts

Right now I'm getting between 90 and 130 clicks a day from one of my blogs. Very random stuff and nothing is all that popular. I have decent traffic (2000 uniques/day and 5000 page views) and I'm running adsense getting about 100 clicks a day for the last few months. My problem is that I'll make about $50/day some days and other days only $20.

I wonder if switching to YPN would make a difference?

Also I have articles that serve ads that are paying $4+ per click but I dont seem to get those type of ads. I get the one's for 40 cents. Is adsense usng PR to see who deserves the higher paying ads or is there something else?

that is good income, increase clicks to 1000 a day to see 200-500$ day... dont be so greedy... some get 0.03$ a click worse.

I agree with greedy! I think you are doing well, especially for a blog. You're making about the same as I am on a long-standing niche content site, with a similar number of visitors.

You are doing very well. I get around that many clicks per day and only get around $10/day. I was getting around $30/day but in mid-June my cpc got slaughtered :(

over here in sunny Malaysia, USD50 a day translates to RM6K. More than enough for a whole family to enjoy the good things in life!

my target is USD100 a day... I'm 15% there...

It's a good income.
I make 0.01/click and I happy that I'm accepted in AdSense network.

If you are averaging 100 clicks per day and receiving $50.00 you are averaging 50 cents per click.

Even if you are only receiving $20.00 you are still averaging 20 cents per click.

There are a ton of publishers running Adsense who would be absolutely thrilled to match your results.

If I did 35c/click this post would be written not by me but by my second assistant (or by the junior assistant of the second assistant).

I very much agree with the others. You have a very good CTR and ECPM.
Your numbers are rare for a blog. Instead of complaining you should be bragging here;-)

I think, the OP is bragging.. Peanuts cannot be this expensive anywhere in the world... ;-)

Some pretty big peanuts...

My site averages around 300 clicks/day and about $50/day.... I'd be happy to have your EPC and make 3x what I am now :)

i wouldn't comlain at all if I had those figures, then again, I am still to optimise the non forum section for the full 100%.

btw, I have a ctr of close to 100% at a section where people can check for links on related companies... they seem to follow every damn link on there :))

If you ask them to follow links, you are asking for trouble with adSense. CTR of 100% is definitely a 'red flag'...

there is nothing saying "follow this or that". I guess people expect direct links there although I provide text as well.

I think you are really doing fine. That's a great performance.

Maybe you can improve your performance a bit by using adsense channels. Use them to find out which topics pay best.

Provide more, deeper information about those topics.

Keep on building your site :-)

I don't understand why you are complaining.

0.20 to 0.50 dollar per click is excellent. What do you expect, $3 per click?

Just focus on getting more traffic.

If you read the last part of his post ... yes, apparently - he does expect $4 clicks. He even has "articles" (purchased? created? OP doesn't state) "that serve ads that are paying $4+ per click" but then laments that "I dont seem to get those type of ads".

Strikes me a bit as another "Where is the pot of money. Someone told me there was a pot of money here. Please direct me to the pot of money." -ish post.

exceptional figures, damn well performing blog.

and the webmaster complaining about earning peanuts, i can't believe it. i tell you what: 0.25 $ seems to be the absolute max unsmartpriced amount that i'm able to earn per click on extremely lucky rare days - not with a blog but with a niche site. so shut up.

I would give my little finger for that kind of earnings per click. I officially hate you for complaining.

"My problem is that I'll make about $50/day some days and other days only $20. "

I am new here and I just want to express my observation.The Original Poster really have a great problem. It's not what he's making but it's his 2000 unique visitors a day. 6.5% of your visitors click ads.

Probably your visitors are not interested enough to your pages that they are not clicking that much!

kensav,

If I made $50 in one day, I'd tinkle my panties. You're doing well.

Bucket of money, not pot.

Where is my bucket of money?

If you don't have the subject matter you don't get $4 clicks, it's that easy.

5,000 uniques, 20,000 page views per day (totally original content 50 pages)

I get a thousand $.25 clicks perday and in Sept that will double.

Stop your greed on the small end it is totally a numbers game, more traffic, more fraffic, more traffic!

posts like this really make me sick. Ive observed these forums for quite a while on and off and i still dream of making $25-$50 a day.
I run a very popular nintendo DS website, with some 3000 uniques per day and 40-50k page views a day....we make somewhere in the region of $12-14 a day off clicks, so that really is some great performance you have there.

The only way we manage to boost our income (and only by about $4 a day) is through googles downloadable software such as FF and picassa.

Still looking for that optimum ballance of traffic and content...content drives traffic....traffic drives me to make better content...round and round we go :-p

What is the mediant age of your visitor?

What is their disposible income?

What is the average spend on a product for an advertiser on your site?

Combine those 3 factors and that gives you the answer.

Web advertising is no different than traditional in these respects.

Like my momma always sez, "Forrest, if you want to catch nice fish you need nice bait".

I bring in business decision makers, college professors and scientists all income $50,000 and up.

Products/Services in ads runs from $50 to $500 with more on the upper side.
