How Much Money Can One earn Through Adsense?

Updated on March 3, 2016

This is a question I have been asking myself since I started doing Internet Marketing. I am very sure many webmasters and even content publishers here on HP ask themselves this question frequently. The advantage with publishing content here on HP is that you really don’t have to worry about domain names, hosting plans, hosting fees, site indexing and many other SEO related stuff.

HP provides a versatile platform that enables new internet Marketers to write original and unique content, get traffic and start earning from affiliate programs such as Amazon, Adsense, Kontera and E-bay.

Starting a new site will definitely require a considerable effort and time to get indexed and get targeted traffic from the Search Engines (according to my experience this can take several weeks to a few months to start earning income from a new site). So I will like to take this opportunity to thank the team at HP for providing this content distribution web application that eases the burden for many new Internet Marketers. Keep up the good work your doing.

So let me get back to the big question which is; how much can one earn via the Adsense program? I have heard cases of people earning thousands of dollars from this advertising platform. Here on HP there are few who earn thousands of dollars per month and many hundreds of dollars per month. I have been here on HP for close to a year and one thing that I have learned is that it takes effort, time and sometimes cost to get to the category of people who are making a living earning from the Adsense program. Patience and hard work is key.

Unique and Original Content

To start with, copying and pasting content on your site and also here on HP will take you nowhere. This to many newcomers seems like a bright solution but it hurts more than it helps. Google has now tightened the strings on how to deal with the never ending war of SPAM and duplicate content. Sites with duplicate content will get banned from the major SE’s (Search Engines) it is now not a matter of 'if' but when you will get caught displaying content that is all over the Internet.

Writing unique, original, captivating, timely and relevant content/ articles is the best way to get a top 10 ranking. Search Engines will find your content to be relevant (this is very important to the SEs) and your site will get massive exposure in the SERPs. Here on HP SPAM and duplicate is not allowed and will not be published.

Once your site or hubpages start getting a significant amount of traffic; this means the Adsense Ads on your pages receive more exposure and more clicks. To summarize, writing unique and original content will make you pages and site receive more impressions, more clicks and more adsense earnings.

Quantity and Quality

Having many web pages is clearly an effective way to increase your earnings. But have in mind that quantity goes hand in hand with quality. Producing many web pages that do not have content that surfers may find compelling, unique and original is just but a waste of time. But producing many webpages that have unique and original content is the way to go. This way you receive great feedback from fellow hubbers and you also get targeted traffic from SE’s (Search Engines)

Traffic means your ads get more impressions and clicks. Please note that this should be an ongoing activity that will ensure you increase your adsesne earnings. Google, of course, keeps a great deal of secrecy regarding how much AdWords advertisers pay per each click directed to their site and the same applies for how much AdSense banner holders make from their websites.

Targeted Niche

Another way of determining how much you can make from adsense apart from getting traffic and publishing quality content is your ‘market niche’. This hub for example is under the Internet Marketing niche, I don’t know how much advertisers pay per click on this niche.

One thing am sure is that there are niches that are very competitive that advertises pay even upto $ 30per click. Writing content based on this niche is a sure way of attracting high paying adsenses ads. Some niche examples I know that pay a very high pay per click price include but not limited to insurance, legal and real estate. If your able to publish content on this niches then I can assure you that you are on the right track to making a living from adsense earnings.

All in all, the amount of money you make with AdSense depends on many factors. But if you have a site with interesting contents and/or many pages, and if you see a constantly large amount of traffic every day, you can bet you'll be making a lot of money with AdSense. Even if you aren't in the above categories, AdSense is still worth using because there's very little hassle in setting it up, and many times it can help financially support the site, whilst being a nice bonus to get through the post at the end of the month.
