Anyone wants to share this info? :)

Hello.
Anyone wants to tell me (us) how much you make per month with AdSense and how many sites you have?
Most of you probably do not like to do that so no problem, is understandable :)

I am curious how much income good sites can generate.

Thank you.

Correct Adrian.

>I am curious how much income good sites can generate

Was that a serious question?

You are right. I'll pass on the invitation, but thank you all the same. But I will say I have one site that does astoundingly well most of the time, and several others that pay me virtually nothing.

I am curious how much income good sites can generate.

How long is a piece of string? What I might call a good site, and what someone else calls a good site differs wildly. Also, earnings vary by so many factors you cannot possibly answer this question.

The only advise that makes sense is to write about something you know about or interests you, promote the site and grow some traffic.

Thanks for the replies, the questions are still open if someone wants to give details :)

OFF topic: I posted same type of question on a site that sells stock photography, photographers didn't want to say how many photos they sell first but then some of them stared and the thread got around 30 replies.

I'd say about $1,500 a month, and we just started showing other ads and it looks like it'll make that much or more. Last year we almost made $3,000 during the holidays, traffic picks up and I think there are just more advertisers then. Here's google stats for last month:

Edit: I did read the TOS, but I'll check again, thought earnings and stats were ok.

Edit #2: Ok earnings are completely fine, ctr is not, and other statistics seems iffy. Can you even give approximate stats? Well at least they let you give earnings info now.

Adrian,

It's like this. If I told you I would have to hire a hitman. :)

Serously though, no one likes to give out that kind of info and if they told you then you gotta ask yourself, "is it a lie?".

Josie, Josie, Josie,

Don't you READ Google's TOS. Your next post maybe a "I got banned from AdSense thread".

NEVER post anything other than your earnings and a few percentages (preferably made up)

I'll answer with all honesty.

Yesterday I made $60, but on Sunday I made only $13. It took me eight months of three-hour-per-day work. Has it paid off? No. Will it pay off? I hope so.

To your other question, it depends on what you consider "a good site". Therefore, I cannot answer it. For the regular Joe webmaster a good website can make more than $100/day, though.

Thanks Josetann for the details, it's very helpful.

Ann, I know most users do not want to share this but I found many of them posting these details.

e.g 1500, 2000 $/month.
Some said that could reach $10 000/ month.

I want to make an idea about an average income or the maximum that it can get to.

joaquin112, by "a good site" I meant a site made well (SEO, content, etc) so that it generates good income.
Thanks for the details.

Definitely depends on the site. My earnings per click are on the low end, probably very low end. CTR used to be even lower than it is now, I've heard of CTR being much higher for other sites. The one saving grace I have, is lots of traffic. Page views (not hits, I know the difference) for last month was 2,461,479. And I didn't get awstats setup until late October 6th, so over 5 1/2 days of stats aren't there.

While I do try to maintain the site, I can leave for week long (or longer) vacations and hardly check on it, and it'll keep chugging along. Most of the fresh content is on a forum, which keeps itself going. I have a few mods that keep things in order, on the whole.

If you make more than $1 you are already doing better than me :P

Why would it even matter what we say?

If I said: "I make 800.00+ per day" would you run out immediately and copy the site? You wouldn't compete, since it's obvious it was original content and well SEOed, established etc etc...

But I will answer your question with a ray of hope.

So far, adsense has been the best paying advertiser I ever had on my sites since 1994.

At that time most people didnt know what your were talking about when you said "internet"... Adsense has not been around since 94 (explained for the slow). But advertisers come and go, since then no others can compare to it.

That is all you need to know.

Adsense works. BUT you need to have a good site, not some crap you through together hoping to get rich quick.

It does, I could make an idea about how much $ AdSense can generate.

I was not interested in someone in particular (maybe some of them thought so) I wanted to know how much can you do with AdSense (5k, 10k, 15k); that is why I wanted to see how much other people make, I know most of you have top quality sites.

About copying your sites ... those are not my intentions :) I can do my own SEO.

adsense has been the best paying advertiser

Everyone says AdSense is the best (me too).

Guys ... :)

I found some of the answers on a site, it looks like a specific dating site makes 300 000 - 400 000 $ / month from AdSense.

I also found that Digg site makes around 250 000 $ / month.

I guess that is the top limit I wanted to find :)
I though some of you might want to know this.

I must remember when I get near this figure to slow down a bit!;)
6:39 pm on Nov 13, 2006 (gmt 0)



adrianTNT

I'll give you a reasonable target to aim for, since it makes the maths very easy, and that is an eCPM of $10.00.

Any reasonably good SEO'd original content and relevant site will attain this figure, assuming it's not a forum etc.

An eCPM gives you $10.00 per 1,000 page impressions, therefore if you have 5,000 impressions, $50.00, 10,000 impressions, $100.00.

Do this every day for a month and you will earn $3,000.00.

So, your job now is to go get that traffic and aim for that eCPM of $10.00...and then higher:-)))

adrianTNT,

I make anywhere between $400-$800 US per month with Adsense. Most of my sites are about Travel/Hotel reservations, which is a "seasonal" topic - why the income varies from month to month.

I have about 50 sites now - because I break up my travel sites by geography.

------------

ADDED: I could get the Adsense figures higher, but I found my Hotel Reservations suffer as a result (my other major source of income). Its a balancing act on my pages between promoting Adsense and the Hotel Reservations.

Thanks gamiziuk and OptiRex.

OptiRex, currently I have few small sites with only 100-150 daily visitors and the ecpm is around 10-15

Adrian,

There is practically no limit to the money you can earn. However, actually having a site or sites that can do it - that takes a huge effort.

If you just want a figure so you will feel motivated - just take a decent job's annual income, and it can be your monthly income. You just have to read, research a lot.

I thought one can posts earnings but not CTR and ecpm and so on. Has this changed?

I also found that Digg site makes around 250 000 $ / month.

Given that this is a major site and given the scale of the web, this is amazingly low.

Hence adsense is no get rich quick scheme.
