I'm definitely dating myself, but years ago when I first started working with Google Adsense I promised myself that once we joined the "Google Adsense UPS Club" that I would post to WebmasterWorld.

Yay - today has finally marked this milestone! :) Thanks to everyone at webmasterworld for your suggestions with Adsense & SEO techniques.

The Adsense UPS Club is basically what people say they belong to once they earn $10 000 per month in Adsense revenue. As a result, Google actually (or used to) send such checks by UPS overnight delivery.

Congratulations, I do remember being a member many years ago, April 2012 I was way less than 10% of it, and I mean WAY less.

Of course it depends on the niche, location, yada, but I wonder how many visitors (THEN) and (NOW) it would take to be generating this amount of revenue.

I know much tougher with so much competition looking for a slice of the pie so definitely my hats off to you OldFaces!

Congrats, OldFaces!

Has it been a (relatively) steady path or have there been wild swings over time? I'm not UPS club but I started AdSense in June 2003 and have seen mostly stable earnings over the years.

I've been to several AdSenee in Your City events and think networking with other publishers is just as important as the suggestions from the AdSense team.

One interesting takeaway from those events: most of the top earners have old, established sites. I've not met any publishers at these events that have sites that are less than about 4-5 yrs old, most are 8+ years old.

Congrats and Great Job!

Just remember to diversify your investments and move on to new niches/technologies/backlink sources ASAP. Don't get too comfortable. Google can and probably will take it away eventually.

YMMV however for my sites average per DAY and assuming earnings now would be pro-rata throughout the day with a reasonably consistent EPC value and assuming there were to be enough advertisers, there were in 2006 in my niche however I very much doubt it now:

2006 Pages 30,000 Uniques 9,000

2012 Pages 105,000 Uniques 36,000

My long-term EPC value has risen hence why fewer pages would be required.

I'm content just to be part of the bank transfer club, but if I were to ever make the UPS club, you'll hear me singing from the rooftops. Congrats OldFaces. Any useful tips for those wanting to become part of the elite?

HuskyPup - that's got to hurt, but hang in there, you seem to know your stuff, and if anyone can make it back in I'm sure you can.

2012 Pages 105,000 Uniques 36,000


Off topic a little but with only 1 visitor per 3 pages I wonder what would happen if you parsed/removed all pages that don't receive 1 visitor or more. EPC climb perhaps?

Does Google still recognize any 'club' besides the one with special adsense unit privileges?

I wondered who would notice this:-) My sites are for people who know more or less what they are seeking.

These page views have been consistent since the mid 90s, quite simply visitors are, in the majority, comparing images v what their purchasing expections may be.

I have some very exclusive widgets that may only get a couple of hundred views per month yet the EPCs are fantastic simply because those widgets are extremely expensive.

It definitely makes no difference to EPC, my EPC values depend on visitor location and the site they are visiting, for example today I had several USD 1.0 clicks on one of my .in sites.

My biggest issue is why Google last May slashed my CTR by 50% over night?
