I was trolling around in Digital Point and ran into someone wondering how or even if it is possible to make $5000 per month with adsense. Here is what I said:
OK, I am not sure how many people are making 5000 per month from Adsense but lets break it down a little. Lets say that a site is dedicated to adsense. Also lets use the following stats (don’t know the accuracy because all niches are different but…
10 cents per click average
5000 per month is 50,000 clicks
50,000 clicks with average click through rate of 4% means 1,250,000 page views a month or 41,666 page views per day.
That is a huge number of page views but look at the leverage that you have.
How can you Raise your Adsense Income?
Raise your clickthrough rate by having shorter articles or better page layout
Raise your pay per click by focussing on better keywords
Raise the number of pages that you have to make sure that more pages are able to generate money and if people click around your site more they have more chance to click an adsense ad
I look at my numbers everyday and always think about how I can raise each of these numbers and of course in using blogs you have consistent design and a much easier way to add content so if you are not making the money now you can tweak to increase clickthrough and add lots of content everyday until you are at the $5000 mark
Realistically the internet is big enough that if you want to focus on any amount of money then it just comes down to pageviews to get to that point. Find lots of small niches or one big one and just start dropping content and backlinks until you are there as far.
