We all know that Google AdSense is one of the best recurring monetization networks for any blog or website. Today, I’m sharing my AdSense earning reports for the past 10 years.

I started blogging in December 2008 and implemented AdSense on ShoutMeLoud in 2009. Soon, it becomes one of the best ways to make money blogging for me. Along with AdSense, another profitable channel for me is affiliate marketing and selling my own products that you can see on ShoutMeLoud store.

While you are here, you should know that I have always been transparent about my blogging business. My goal with ShoutMeLoud is to help others follow their passion for writing and make a business out of it. This is why every month I publish income and traffic report so that you could apply all new techniques in your blogging journey.

Here are two articles that you should start with:

It’s 2019 now, and I wanted to share my AdSense earnings report for the last seven years. I believe this will be helpful to many bloggers, and help them figure out if they can rely on AdSense for their online income or not.

Before I share my AdSense earnings report, do remember:

  • This report includes all the blogs in my network.

I received my first payment in the first week of May 2009. It was $179.77, and honestly, I can’t begin to express the joy I had when I was holding my first AdSense check!

If you notice in the product column, “Hosted AdSense for Content” earned $571.27.

While it is not much, this comes from the AdSense-YouTube partnership.

I also earn from AdSense ads running on YouTube videos on my YouTube channel.

You should definitely focus on YouTube for monetization. It could be a great revenue source for your online earning. I suggest you to read below article to learn more about this:

How To Make Money on YouTube (With or Without Huge Subscriber Base)

To be honest, my one-year affiliate income report for any individual network is much better than my ten-year combined earnings from AdSense, but as I always say: recurring income from AdSense gives us peace of mind.

When you are earning online, recurring income is the first thing that you should target.

Once you are within your income comfort zone, you can try to implement new methods of making money from a blog.

When it comes to contextual advertising, there are many AdSense alternatives out there. But the quality of the ads and the timeliness of payments you get with Google AdSense aren’t available apart from a select few such as

Can you rely on AdSense income as a full-time/sole source of income?

The reason I’m sharing my 10 years of AdSense earnings with you is to give you an idea of how much a blogger can earn from AdSense.

As I told you before, my AdSense earnings are only a small portion of my total income, but I know many bloggers who are making more than $8000 USD every month with AdSense. Here is a screenshot from another bloggers AdSense account and perhaps this is the biggest AdSense earning I have ever seen.

AdSense Lifetime Earning

Do notice the lifetime column to see the potential of AdSense.

If I consider the salary of an average software engineer in countries like U.S.A, India, Brazil, and a few others, I find AdSense earnings to be more tempting than the traditional salary.

The only downside of relying only on AdSense for income is that if your account gets banned at any point in time, you will be hunting for the best suitable alternative, which is a “traditional” job.

If you are someone who is planning to start a blog and earn from AdSense, my advice to you would be:

  • Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

If you are planning to make blogging a career, it is a good idea to have multiple sources of income.

You can have multiple blogs, or you can use different monetization methods like:

  2. CPM ads,
  3. Affiliate marketing
  4. Launch your own course
  5. Offer consultancy
  6. Digital products

and many others.

So that sums up my ten-year AdSense journey. I will continue to share whatever I learn during my blogging journey with you on my blogs.

I would be interested to know how much on average you earn from AdSense in a year. Would you recommend to anyone considering blogging as a full-time career to rely on AdSense earnings? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

    Thanks Harsh for sharing earning report. I am also new blogger and my blogging language is hindi. My google adsense account fully approved within a month and that time i have only 14 post on my blog. I am using blogspot platform. Pls see my website. But problem is that I am not making with this google adsense account . pls guide… cpc is very low around 0.05$ .

  2. Hello Harsh Sir, I am a big fan of the articles that you write here. I just have one very basic question that how much time does it takes for the search engines to recognise your website and can I start making money from the first day onwards. ?

    1. @Shivam
      If your post quality stuff daily, you can expect up to one month for your blog to start getting traction. If you have no experience before, it would take 1-2 month to start seeing money from blogging.

  3. I don’t think adsense is helpful in India anymore, unless the traffic is huge. Hope you can share other ways, how to go about alternative ways now, in 2017, when adsense revenue here is going down, at least in my case.

    Hi Harsh,
    That’s really inspiring. Yes, AdSense gives you peace of mind. But it takes a while to get substantial results from AdSense.
    However, I would also like to mention that nothing can beat AdSense in some particular niches.

  10. Thanks Harsh for sharing your Adsense revenue. I aggree with your advice of not putting all eggs in one basket. Its very important to have multiple sources of income. When I start monetizing my blog, I’ll make sure to diversify.
