How Much Money One Can Earn From Google AdSense

Making money from a blog is a lucrative proposition, and AdSense is one of the top choice for bloggers to monetize their blog. Even though Affiliate marketing or CPA marketing pays more than AdSense, but Adsense ads gives a sense of peace of mind, and more over adds into recurring income. If I have to put it in a simple way, AdSense works as a saving account where you will be paid mostly on a fixed interest rate, and affiliate marketing works as a mutual fund investment, where income can fluctuate but always higher than AdSense.

Anyways, this post is not about which one is better, but here I’m answering one of the most asked question to me regarding AdSense. Recently I was giving a Workshop at Hosting summit, and after summit someone asked me about how much money she can make from her image based website or other lucrative and easy to use niche for AdSense. And couple of days back, one of the Shouter Shubhan asked how much money he can earn from AdSense on his blog. Here is the Email from Shubhan:

Earn from Adsense

How much money Shubhan can make from AdSense ?

Let me start with Answering Shubhan first question:

Shubhan your blog is professionally designed, and it looks great. Your content are original and adds value. You are using BlogSpot platform, but that should not be a problem. Since you are using a custom domain, I recommend you to get Custom domain Email address using Outlook, and apply using it.  Check out his blog design, which is on BlogSpot and looks so professional.

Coming back to second question ” How much I will earn from AdSense”, which is one of the most frequently asked question by other Shouters. When I was new to AdSense, even I had the same question. I heard so many stories about people making $50/click or making thousands of $ via AdSense every month, I always wondered if I can make the same money from AdSense. To be honest, I never made that amount of money like other AdSense ninjas, and I will explain the reason below.

How you can calculate your future AdSense income:

To disappoint you, there is no easy or sure-shot way to calculate your future AdSense earning, as you can’t predict how much money you will make per click. AdSense income depends on various factors, and here are some of the most common factors which adds into more AdSense earning.

Topic of your Blog: 

Lets start with the basics of AdSense. Google AdSense works on the basis of AdWords, where Advertisers bids on Keywords, and thus Ads are displayed on 3rd party Websites like yours and mine using AdSense. Now, with time Advertisers are becoming smarter, and they bid more on long-tail Keywords, as this converts better. Along with this, there is a concept of high-paying and low-paying niches.

For ex: Niche like health, Loan, Attorney have high CPC (Cost per click), and other niche like (Movies, posters) are considered as low paying niche. Technology niche on other hand is quite moderate AdSense niche, and income per click depends on various factors, which I have mentioned below.

Your traffic demographic:

AdSense income also depends upon the country which is sending you more traffic. For example, if your blog is getting more traffic from countries like U.S.A., you are more likely to earn more from per click on your AdSense ads. Where as if you are getting more traffic from developing nation like India, Nepal, you are likely to earn less/click (Mostly in pennies), and this difference is due to difference in average purchasing power of these nations.

Other common factors:

Above two are the most influential factor for AdSense earning. After this other factors like your Ad placement, ad blending, type of Ads (Image or Text or both), also adds a lot into it. These factors can easily be optimized by strategically implementing AdSense ads on your blog (Above the fold, and blend it smartly), and for other factors, you need to work on before you launch your blog.

Well, many of us create Blog just to earn from AdSense (Nothing wrong with it), but people usually give up on it soon, as this doesn’t keep them glued for long. More over, without complete domain knowledge, quality of site goes down with time, and it doesn’t work on long run. In my recent guide on How I created AdSense blog with less effort, I explained how to create quality AdSense blog. (A strategy that you can easily copy).

So next time if you have doubt related to how much you can earn from AdSense ads, ask yourself what niche and what kind of traffic you are going to get on your blog. None the less, check out this guide on finding high CPC AdSense keyword in most convenient way.

    Recently, I have been doing research about how to make and increase Google Adsense earnings by controlling and increasing CPC + CTR through proper ads placements and by targeting high no. of monthly searches with huge suggested bids.

    In addition, I have one doubt regarding the Google Adsense Score Card optimization. I would really appreciate, if you tell me about it so that I could gain full score in all the possible stages like Revenue Optimization and Site speed optimization.

    Hey Harsh,

    Yes, This is a fact that Adsense publishers are making 30-50$ per click. But its really hard I think. If we want to increase GA CPC then we have to block low paying ads on out website or blogs. My adsense earning is not too much in these days :(

    Thanks for sharing this cool idea with us.

    So my blog niche of science and facts is at a great disadvantage as per point number one. But, I can’t change that because Science is the thing I’m genuinely interested in….

    Also, I think that the general internet population has evolved to ignore adsense ads. This is supported by the fact how high adsense earnings used to be in early days…

    Thirdly, doesn’t the age and rank of your page matter? Because from what I know, adsense gives a higher CPC for well aged blogs. For instance, since mine is new, for each Indian click I hardly earn anything…Even developed country clicks have a long way to go before they hit a dollar per click mark….

    One day, when I got an accidental viral traffic of 17,000 people in a day, I made a few single digit dollars. And that kind of traffic is only going to come regularly only after several years. So, basically, adsense is not going to make me any kind of money that can support my life.

    I don’t know where I’m going with my blog. I need help! I’ll have to find a revolutionary revenue source for it…

    Hi Harsh,

    I totally agree with you, Google Adsenese earnings depends on a lot of factors as you mentioned above, even the place of the ad could affect your earnings, the best way to know how much you would earn is by applying Google Adsense and do split testing to try to enhance your earnings.

    Comparison of affiliate and adsense with MF and saving account is mind blowing.
    Google adsense is reliable source of income but we should always have a backup plan for this.
    Location of traffic and keywords used plays the major role in income sheet.

  6. Rakesh says

    Hi Harsh,

    I got banned from adsense two years ago when I was making around 200$ a month. I did fill those stupid forms and got the same kind of message again and again from adsense. Today, I filled the form and mentioned a website URL which follows all the policies and have more than 30 articles. Still the same message.

    Can I get back adsense? Is there any way to figure out to get adsense back? PS: No Adsense alternatives recommendation as they are damn vulnerable when we compare to adsense for niche websites.

    Expecting a reply-
    With hope and wishes- Rakesh Kumar .

    You have mentioned some great factor for adsence .. Mostly should think about the Profitable keywords research which have great CPC & great search volume .. Then after approving the adsence the revenue per click obviously will be great which you mentioned “people making $50/click” beside traffic of demographic also a major factor ..

  8. Reginald says

    Hey Harsh,

    Thanks for sharing this. Found this on Google+. I think and highly believe it is all depends on your niche and amount of traffic. Personally, I don’t think ylu can make money from adsense if you have below 1k traffic a day.

    Well, that’s just me though!


    • says

      I got 17,000 people a few days back…because one of my post had gone viral…and that day I earned in single digit dollars only. So, I think probably the age of you blog also matters…does it?

  9. rakesh kumar says

    That is a perfect answer for the situation like this. Most of the time people think if they are getting this much of traffic it means they are entitled for $$$ from adsense and that is not the situation.

  10. Harmeet singh says

    This article can clear my doubt on the CPC which depends on the various factors and long tail keywords are the best method to earn more…(y)

    Hey there, Harsh :)

    I’m really impressed that you actually wrote an entire article to respond to a shouter’s question. I idiolize this attitude :)

    Our visitors are everything, and the fact the a blogger can go this far to help a visitor out is simply great. Keep on the good work, Harsh :)

    Earning good money with Adsense is very tough these days. Getting your blog Adsense approved has become tough. Google can ban your blog anytime because of violation of their policies. All in all, Google Adsense is not made for every blog and site. It may work for you or it may not. You always need to have a plan B in case Google rejects your application or ban your Adsense account.

  13. says

    These days,approving an Adsence account is harder then writing a quality post.
    Also it doesn’t suit for gaining massive income.Sometimes,one sale will fulfill the monthly payment of Adsense you receive.That’t the prominent secret.

  14. Sagar Rai says

    Not every one have time to physically open ads in new tab.

    Gettin adsense back is actually a hard method.

    I do monetize my blog from direct ad sales, sponsored posts and affiliate trading. :)

    What aout you Harsh?
