All the blogger community loves a lot to Adsense. You will also do the same once you understand the basics of monetization your blog with Adsense.
What is the Adsense
Google AdSense is a program run by Google that allows publishers in the Google Network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, or interactive media advertisements, that are targeted to site content and audience. (Ref. Wiki)
Google Adsense was launched by Google on June 18, 2003, and from that day to till today (Aug 02, 2018) Google has been paid to their publishers approximate US $9,860,908,459.00
How it’s Work
Anybody can apply for an Adsense account in free for their blog. Google Adsense works on a revenue share program, It means if an advertiser pays 100 cents for a click on Ads which is placed on your blog, Google will earn 32 cents and as a publisher, you will get 68 Cents.

So, How Much traffic do you need to make $100 per day with Adsense
This is the most common question “how much money I can make from Adsense” and Answer will always the same “sky is the limit”. Several of bloggers are making not only thousands of dollars a month although they are making millions of dollars a month, and all is possible with the way of a planning. Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.
As per my calculation, anyone can able to reach nearly $100 per day when he will able consistently getting over 10,000 page views in a day with the 10 cents CPC. Let’s try to make a view more accurately with the below example:
|Estimated Gross Revenue||US $101.25|
|Cost Per Click||US $ 0.10|
|Page RPM||US$ 10.57|
|Impressions RPM||US$ 2.90|
“A Goal without a Plan is Just a Wish”
So, $100 a day earning will equal with the 10,000 page views?
Absolutely not, Your blog earning not only depends on page views, it will also be affected by some other factors. And It could be lower, or even much higher than that. There are so many factors in play that it’s going to be different for everybody. But, it’s a close estimation.
Your Adsense earning belongs to your blog niche, If you have a topic that is valuable for your audience and providing them with a fruitful reason to comes again and again on your blog, it means you have success to produces regular traffic and income through your blog.
There are three kinds of people and try to find where do you belong:
- Those who make things happen;
- Those who watch things happen; and
- Those who wonder what happened.
The only thing you need to make money through Google Adsense is planning, hard work, determination, consistency and most important passion about your topic or niche.
Here’s some terminology for the better understanding of CPC, CTR, and RPM.
1. CPC = Cost Per Click
Somebody comes on your blog, click on some ads and your blog will earn some revenue from that clicks. And how much you will get for a click on a get is all decided by Advertisers. It could be 1 cent, 1 dollar or more per click. Per click earning depends on your blog niche and locations.
2. CTR = Click Through Rate
Suppose, you have 3 Adsense Ad Units on each page of your blog, means you will get 3 ad impression for per page view.
How do you calculate Impression CTR and Page CTR
a. Impression CTR = (Clicks / Ad Impressions) X 100
For understanding we can imagine, you get 15 clicks out of 1000 ad impressions, your impression CTR would be 1.5%, (15/1000) X 100.
b. Page CTR = (Clicks / Page Views) x 100
Presume, you get 15 clicks out of 200 page views, your page CTR would be 7.5%, (15/200) X 100.
3. RPM = Page Revenue per 1000 Impression
This calculation is completely based on your estimated gross revenue and number of page views in a day or month or whatsoever.
a. Page RPM = (Estimated earnings / Number of page views) x 1000
For example, if your estimated gross revenue on a particular day was $100 and the number of page views was 10000, then Page RPM will (100/100,00) x 1000 equal to US $10.
b. Impression RPM = (Estimated earnings / Number of ads impression) x 1000
In another scenario, if your estimated gross earning 100 dollars and the number of ad impressions was 40000, the Impression RPM will (100/400,00) x 1000 = US $2.5.
Can you make a living with AdSense?
Yes, You can! and you can make as more as you wish with the Adsense but in my opinion, you cannot rely on a single source of income. So, never you should have to make this kind of mistake, that you are totally depending on your Adsense earning. You also need to create some other fruitful earning legs like Affiliate Marketing, eBook Publishing and by wisely investing your earned money in Real Estate, Mutual Funds or in Peer to Peer Lending.
