Welcome to WebmasterWorld
There is an Google Adsense forum, you might want to post this question there... Anyway, if you can maintain a $18.27 eCPM, you'll hit $100,000 with that kind of traffic. With 1 click in 30 page views, you'll need to average around $0.55 per click, which can happen.
Uniques are usually counted each day. Best of luck to you.
30k pageviews-a-day (which are 'hits' and not 'visits') giving $3000-a-day to a publisher
Assuming an incredible 20% CTR that would mean an average EPC of USD 0.50.
Check through the threads here and you'll find very few with an EPC at that average let alone the 20% CTR.
15,000 visitors per day = $150 per day
This is also assuming you make a penny per visitor; some of us have topics that need 10x more visitors to make that money.
This was from an informal consensus survey here a few months ago with the top level being about USD 0.02 per visitor it would still only be USD 300 per day IF the OP is referring unique visitors.
1 in every 30 people click an ad...
That's a very high CTR. I doubt you'll get 1 in 100.
Usually it seems like we talk about CTR as it refers to pageviews instead of visitors. But even if each visitor only looks at one page the 1 of 30 isn't an especially high CTR at 3.333%.
If each visitor looks at a more likely 3 pages the CTR becomes much lower as it refers to pageviews.
Of course CTR varies widely depending on all kinds of factors, as others have indicated.
I found very interesting paper dated 2002 comparing Google and Yahoo.
Ho hum, AdSense didn't exist then!
More than $50 Cost-per-Click.
Whilst most here "have heard" about this the reality is that since the introduction of Smart Pricing it is very unlikely that many have seen such high-priced clicks and certainly not a constant quantity of them.
We had a thread recently and if I remember correctly the highest single click someone had seen recently was +/-USD 25.00.
I regularly see USD 1.00-2.00 clicks however my average is way, way below:-(
'1 of 30' is 'visitor'-related term, and CTR is 'hits'-related
no, ctr is 'ad view' related. 'hits' is the number of fetched items on your page. it's a term mostly used by newbies, who believe it is something important, not knowing that this metric is completely useless for adsense and nearly all other comparisons.
