Lately I have been thinking of creating a blogging website but with a special theme, I have discussed it with many friends and all of them where supportive and told me that it would work and attract many visitors. But I am not a developer myself so I have to get someone to do the job for me, so that's going to cost me some money, I just want to make sure that it will be worth it and i would be able to compensate all the expenses using Adsense. I know it's difficult to give specific numbers, but what is the average amount that I can expect to make with Adsense? My goal isn't very high, but it would be nice to make an extra 300/400 dollars per month, what number of visitors must I achieve to get this kind of pay? Thanks a lot!

Adsense earnings do not depend only on the number of visitors. They also depend on the quality of content and on the topic you choose to cover.

I think you'll need a bunch of visitors to make $300 a month - 1000 per day perhaps?

I'd simply start up blogging and see what will happen. You'll learn every day you blog. You'll learn which topics do best. Keep on reading WW and learn ;-)

Blogging software is intended to make it easy for those without even the most elementary markup skills to set up and run their own website.
You won't need a developer.

would you please tell me how can I get one, and does it handle everything in the site (usernames, passwords etc)? Thanks

That's much higher than the average AdSense publisher makes, so by that standard, your goal is very high.

told me that it would work and attract many visitors

Did they tell you how it would attract "many" visitors? Do you have lots of friends with high-traffic blogs who are promising to link to yours? Or do you own a billboard beside a busy highway? What exactly is the plan that will let you attract those "many" visitors, despite the fact that most web pages get very few visitors?

This amount may not seem very much in Switzerland however to give you an idea I have a friend who earns USD 700/800 per month with a well-established site.

He averages about 1,400 page impressions per day with nearly a 6% CTR and nearly USD 18.00 eCPM.

Most posters here will tell you that these are good figures therefore if you could generate the same, halve them and you can see what you would need to do.

I doubt very much if a blog, when you know nothing whatsoever to start off with, could generate anywhere near these figures.

I'm guessing that you would probably need a minimum 2,500-3,000 impressions per day.

Come on you bloggers, tell him how easy it is:-))

I just want to make sure

You can't.

Either you give it a try or you don't.

But to give you a hint: most of the forum members gave it a try and never had regrets.

How do you know what the average AdSense publisher makes? And if so what is the average?

If you are just starting out, and make alot of spam pages that add nothing for the internet community, you are likely to make somewhere between $1,250,000 and $25,000,000 dollars a year.

It amazes me that there are people foolish enough to work at mundane jobs when there is this kind of easy money to be had.

I too would like to know more about the "average AdSense earnings". Is this an opinion or based in fact?

What's the average house cost? What's the average Web site traffic? What's the average person earn?

Too many variables. Waste of time.

Why that would be the center that is very close to the middle.

Why worry about averages? To paraphrase Marshall McLuhan, the median is the message.

First find your "average adsenser"

Then pursuade him/her to tell you what they earn.

I think this is quite the average responses from this unaverage group when asked about averages.

rofl. I like it here. There's an old saying - there's no such thing as a free lunch. That's obviously open to debate, but basically, the premise stands, if you want to make good money, you have to work at it. Forums, unless exceedingly popular don't do that great - blogs, unless you're incredibly funny (and other people thing so as well as just you), or you're covering a popular but little-blogged-about topic really well - not likely to do that great either. 400 dollars a month is a high target if you know nothing about it - aim for 40 to start with. And never click your own links. dance. oh hang on...
