    Let’s Do The Math To Make $100,000 A Year With Google AdSense

    Let’s assume that you have a Page CTR of 1% and your average CPC is $0.25 (I believe it’s quite an achievable target unless your keywords have no advertiser competition – e.g. a recipe blog).

    Some of the top paying AdSense niches are Finance, Internet Marketing, Technology, Web Hosting, Internet & Computers, Software, Health etc. and some of the lowest paying AdSense niches are Entertainment, Arts, Movies, Celebrity Gossips, News blog, Jokes, Wallpapers, Quotes, Recipes, Photo blogs etc.

    As mentioned earlier $100,000 a year means you have to earn $274 a day. If your average CPC is $0.25 then you need 100,000/0.25 = 400,000 clicks a year (or approximately 1,000 clicks a day) to earn $100,000 a year from Google AdSense. Assuming that your Page CTR is 1% you need approximately 100,000 page views a day. Now, let’s say your “Bounce Rate” (it is the estimated percentage of visits to your website that consist of a single page view) is 100%. It means that you need 100,000 unique visitors a day itself to generate 100,000 page views a day.

    In a nutshell, you need 100,000 visitors a day to make $100,000 a year from Google AdSense alone (with a CTR of 1% and CPC of $0.25).

    But you are not using AdSense alone to monetize your website, right? You can make more money by selling direct banner ads, in-text ads, CPM ads, sponsored links, affiliate marketing, etc.

    Cost Per Impression (CPM) Ads

    So let’s say you’re selling direct banner ads and is also selling CPM advertising which is again an effective way to monetize your website.

    What are CPM ads?

    CPM (Cost Per Mille) stands for Cost Per 1,000 Impressions. CPM networks pays for every 1,000 impressions you generate. If a CPM ad network is paying you $1 CPM then it means that they’re paying you $1 for every 1,000 page views you generate.

    CPM Network earnings totally depend upon your traffic quality but you can expect anywhere between $1 – $3 per 1,000 impressions. So, if you generate 100,000 page views a day then you can make $100 – $300 a day from CPM Networks. Again, you can earn $100 – $300 (or maybe even more) a day by selling banner ads directly to advertisers.

    Now, you can split the traffic into three as you’re earning $300 each from 3 advertising networks. It means that you need 100,000/3=33,333 unique visitors a day (with a bounce rate of 100%) to make approximately $274/day.

    Again, if you have an authority blog then your bounce rate will never be 100%. In that case you can expect an average page view of 1.5 per user. It means that 50% of your visitors exit from the landing page and others visit more than one page on your website.

    All in all, you need approximately 20,000 visitors a day to generate 30,000+ page views and it can earn $274 a day which translates to $100,000 a year in advertising revenues. Need a little more help reaching that $100,000/year goal? Add commissions from Affiliate Programs as well into the equation and you can hit that $100,000 goal with much less traffic. In fact, in 2008 I was averaging $200+ a day from less than 200 daily unique visitors with affiliate marketing. It was possible because when it comes to affiliate marketing it’s all about traffic quality and not traffic quantity.

    Sarahsmile...did someone hack your profile? Fever or not, that didn't sound like you. Hope all is well now.

  • sarahsmile

    CultBgone your kind of right!

    Paris asked me to post this topic! Under my name!

    I was sick when I said ok and did it!

    So your the winner for solving the mystery!

    Good Job!

    Suck weekend but I am feeling better!

    Thanks for asking.

    Just waiting for this topic and Paris to both be forgotten!

    One good thing came out of it, now everyone knows to click on the ads one time!

    Lets end this topic!

    Thanks Dis for that information!

    I take full responsibility for this topic.

    One time, I asked Simon if he had a way for members to send him a few bucks (if they wanted to) or if we could all click a few ads once in a while to support the site. He declined. So what we have is a clear indication he is not trying to profit from this site, and a total absence of evidence contradicting that.

    This "attracting xians to the site" accusation is interesting. I wonder if the OP has cookies that make her see xian ads when she comes here. I see shoes.

  • Violia

    i see clothes /shoes ads and hair care products etc, basically whatever I have been searching for online.


    The real money is in YOUTUBE subscriptions, and some of those success stories are unpredictable flukes. Like anything else, writing, modeling, acting, sports, a very small minority actually make it to the big time. To assume that everyone is getting rich off a website is ignorant. If someone works hard and makes it, so what?!?!

    Jealous much??

  • stillin

    Rebel, you see shoes I see investment portfolio managers and NRA membership drives!

    My wife has been using Zappos for her shoes and she's delighted with their way of doing business.

    I'm not very likely to join the NRA but maybe some good will come of this thread

    ah! Now they want me to chat with hot Latino girls and buy crude oil stock

  • sarahsmile

    I never noticed the ads! I see a shop now button!

    LOL! ha,ha,ha!

    You guys are fun! :-)

    And I clicked on it cool stuff!

    I am glad that it was not you Sarahsmile, it seemed so out of character. It just shows how it's not a good idea to post things for others. Village Girl/Paris was banned for a reason.

    The free market enterprise system is wonderful. I hope that Simon makes money or at least covers his cost - because this justifies his presence in this environment. If others are able to make money god bless them all. The internet is presented as a cost free source of entertainment but that is just not true. There is a cost and hopefully a corresponding source of funding to cover this cost.
