    Anyone really make a living with Adsense?


    I control about 250,000 hits per month (all natural se and returns !) right now so did some tests with adsense to estimate potential.

    After allowing google to have 40,000 impressions I found an eCPM of $2.23. At that rate I would need to receive approx. 27 million impressions per year to create a 60k pay check?!? How do people make money with this program? Is premium adsense more profitable? Is there a better company to sell traffic too?

    Traffic means nothing with adwords, its all about what your sites about which gets you higher priced clicks. I don't make a living with it, well technically I do but I'm very poor and just $10 increase per day means alot to me I build my high traffic sites to get my other sites going which bring in the $

    fuzzlpop, do you think AdSense make sense? is it worth trying if your site or your network of sites is getting a lot of traffic?

    • fuzzlepop agrees : Depends on subject of site, if its a low paying site with adsense then its best putting all your advertising space that was for adsense on advertising one of your new sites that give you a better $ click.

    Also you may tweak your content, the position of your adsense ads so you increase your click-ratio.

    Of course you need adsense on high traffic sites, but you make more money using high traffic sites to get traffic to the money making sites thats what I've experiments with anyway and works.

    I worked for a small newspaper (one of those weekly arts and entertainment papers), and I had one ad unit pretty far down the right column of every page on the site You actually had to scroll down to find it. Ads could have been much beter placed to optimize clicks, but It averaged $6 per day. Im not sure how many page impressions per day we got, but there were about 500 unique visits per day.

    Hits means nothing. It is the pageviews that are important.

    You can make much more than 60k with 27 million impressions if adsense is well optimized.

    ~ I think 40,000 impressions on a well optimized and high paying keyword page will give you more eCPM .

    Hi. I'm new to this forum. I think if you have traffic, you have the ability to make significant money. What you need to do is optimize to higher paying key words and or build more pages with higher paying keywords imbedded in the content. Just looking through this forum tonight I found a page listing what the high paying keywords are:

    I don't know how accurate that list is, but it looks interesting to me.
