Do you earn money if people visit your site?

Do you earn money if people visit your site? Or do you just get money for clicks?

I get about 2,500 unique visitors a day and 3,700 page views. Is that amount good or bad?

Also, I started adsense yesterday and I've made about $5 so far (60 cents yesterday and the rest today) with about 30 clicks. Am I off to a good start or should I change something?

So in average your visitors are looking at one page, two pages at most. That does sound bad to me. Also $5 from 2,500 uniques doesn't sound very good to me. But since you just started, give G some time to get the ads targeted.

In the mean while keep working on your (unique) content and you'll be just fine.

I run my site on blogger so there is only one page. My site has been running since October 2005. IDK if that helps or anything lol

That's not very many visitors, not bragging but just one new site of mine gets 4 times that many visitors after being around about the same amount of time or less. At 10,000 unique a day and about 30K overall, the site is still only doing "okay" in my eyes. Yes, you do make money if people "just visit", my stats says that one in a certain number of those visitors will click an ad. Whether 20% click or only 2% click, it all comes down to how many visitors your site is getting, that's your bottom line. If your CTR is only 2% than you need to make up for that by getting a large number of visitors.

Spacelacie,

How do you get to so many visitors,if I may ask?

Is it all through natural search engine rankings?

LOL my CTR is less than 2. I just added two new ads and they aren't ready yet so maybe I should just give it some time?

I need to know how to get more visitors to my site. Before I started adsense I thought my visitors were a lot lol. I guess I was wrong :/

I only use one ad block per page and usually, but not always, an ad link unit as well. It took me literally years to come up with the best ad placements for my sites. Certainly, you need to give it time. 2% or less isn't that bad for a new site where you haven't played with placements of ads much. I must admit that many pages on my "new" site don't quite get a 2% CTR. I'm working on that, however.

F_Rose, I have never bought a link or paid for an Adwords campaign. I just keep up with my niche and publish information via email subscription for people also interested in this niche. My visitors are either word-of-mouth(or perhaps word-of-mouse would be more appropriate) or from search engines and individual links. There is a lot to be said for becoming an "authority" in your field. If people are looking to you for information about your niche, there is a good chance you will succeed.

Spaceylacie,

Thanks for your advise..

In order for you to start you had to get people to subscribe to your newsletter, etc.

What tactics did you use to get people to subscribe?

Yes, I had to get them to subscribe. I did this by simply making the "sign-up desk" accessible. A prominent link to it with info about what they could expect by subscribing did the trick.
