Only 2 million?

I thought every high school kid on the planet had an account just for starters.

Glad I never bet any money on it.

Now how many of those 2 million are just scrapers leeching away at our income?

I have no idea how they might review them; remember they have to be reviewed on the AdWords side too. If the advertiser commits some infraction or gets hacked or doesn't pay, we don't get paid either. Plus there's our own traffic quality, smart pricing, and who knows what else. It's actually somewhat of a miracle we get stats as quickly as we do (nobody else gives them this quickly)

Agreed. I have no complaints about the stats. They may not be exactly in real time, and adjustments may be made, but some other networks don't update until the next day or even show number of clicks.

Wednesday's CTR was way up, yet CPC was so low, it ended "average". Better than the rest of this garbage month.

I just don't understand why it seems that the better the CTR, the lower the CPC? I've had great days with extremely low CTR, and the opposite with higher than average CTR? I know there are several factors, but this seems to occur with mainly US/organic clicks?

Even today's earning is way way high. I could only imagine what Decembers earning would be which is my high traffic month. Very happy right now.

Jckline, having Adsense is already something to be envied. We are lucky to have it. It's a previlege to have it. All you need is finding the right niche -- regardless whatever it is, you can be successful by having a well written, professionally designed site that can retain visitors. Here's an inspiration for you: i have poor English skills but I'm able to improve by spending time in forums, reading books, watching English tv shows, and having English friends. My expertise is design and by befriending English grammar experts, I'm able to make my sites so good like it was written by a pro.

Now, that English is not your problem, all you need is someone who can design and code your sites. I make a lot of money with Adsense. I'm sure you will too. Your ultimate goal should be to earn $100 per day at least then you'll live comfortably. Good luck.

@jbayabas, a $100 per day is easier said than done. I'm a designer as well, hence my primary site is design related. Not the best "niche", but what I know. I don't create sites for AdSense, that's why I still have an account after 8+ years. I just need to do some content tweeking. What used to work doesn't seem to anymore. Thanks.

jbayabas, you have one formula for success. There are others. And in many parts of the U.S., $3K a month is hardly enough to live comfortably.

Jckline, I don't believe that there's a bad niche. Design can be a good niche, it's how you deliver your content to your audience is what counts. I know a site that build templates for free that get huge amount of traffic. I also know a friend that does design tutorials that gets a lot of returning visitors. The question is how good of a designer are you? Are you Cnn.com designer good or just average. Sometimes we have to ask an honest question about ourselves. If our skills is just average then we have to learn to be competitive. It's also all about passion. Do you enjoy what you do? Making money is secondary. I wake up every day excited what I have to share to my visitors. Being paid by Adsense while doing what i love is icing on the cake.

Ember, I understand 3k a month is not enough to live comfortably for an average family in the US. I'm assuming if the person is single and lives within his means can live comfortably at 3k. I started at 2k a month living in a $500 month apt and I was able to save at least $300 a month. I earn way more than that now with a house that is now almost mortgage free. It's all thanks to Google. I'm very grateful.

You can pay up to 200,000 just for a parking space in London. And beach huts can go between 80,000 and 160,000. My bathroom is larger.

November ended up much better than the first week suggested it was going to be for me:

v October 2012 95.45%
v November 2011 76.58%
v November 2010 35.75%

Tablets and high-end mobiles provided 24.4% of earnings from 8.19% of page views.

scotland - Not sure what's happened! I posted it, Lame_Wolf responded and the thread disappeared.

I tried posting it again and I got the message that I'd already posted it!

I assume that someone went to upin November's and pin December's but accidentally deleted December's and didn't unpin November...maybe?

Earnings look about normal for me for 1st Dec plus a Saturday with very low page views.

Got a message from those wonderful people in Adsense that my account had been upgraded to their new payments method. Unfortunately it was working perfectly with the IBAN data but apparently it had to be upgraded to use IBAN data. Apart from that, November was better than October (much), and September.

My adsense has been stuck for the last 5-6 hours. It will be very interesting to see how much it increases by when I receive the expected click dump. If its only a few dollars there is no way it can be accurate.

Same here in downtown Montreal. I'm sure you can buy an affordable $300k single house in the suburbs with a little bit of commute to London.
