Let’s take a look at a combination that will enable you to earn approximately $5,000 monthly by applying Google’s Adsense program to your blog.
We will be working with the following assumptions:
Your blog will be targeting visitors mainly from USA, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Adverts from these countries pay higher on average than others.
There are may variable involved in working out the revenue generated from Adsense. These include CTR (click-through rate), CPC (cost per click), RPM (revenue per 1000 impressions).
I will keep it simple by assuming that your blog generates $2.00 per 1,000 visitors. This can also be stated as $0.002 per visitor to your blog.
Let’s work out how much revenue your blog will have to generate daily to earn a total of $5,000 monthly.
$5,000 / 30 days = $166.66 daily, we will round this up to $167 daily.
$167 / $0.002 = 83,500
You will need to have 83,500 visitors to your blog daily.
This seems like a really large number, but it can be achieved by writing a large number of posts.
If you have 100 posts, you will need 83,500 /100 = 835 visitors per post.
If you have 1,000 posts, you will need 83,500 / 1,000 = 83.5 visitors per post, let’s say 84 visitors per post!
There are many factors to take into account in order to work out revenue from Adsense. The niche you have chosen has to have advertisers that are willing to pay highly for the adverts. The revenue for Adsense comes from the payment taken from people using Adwords to advertise online.
The highest paying niches are insurance, online education, finance, marketing and advertising, legal, internet and telecoms, fitness and health, motoring…
It is easy to choose a high paying niche, but the hardest part is creating the content and getting your posts ranked highly on google for the relevant keywords and key phrases.
The posts on your blog need to draw in visitors from search engine listings. The best traffic comes from people clicking on search listings displayed as a result of searches made using specific keywords and key phrases.
You may need to have over 1,000 well written, informative, search engine optimized posts to earn approximately $5,000 monthly using Adsense. This is going to be hard work, but it is still possible! A small number of people are earning over $50,000 monthly in Adsense revenue.
Most of these high earners have massive blogs in highly paid niches or a selection of smaller blogs in various highly paid niches.
The difference between Adsense and Affiliate Marketing is that you need to generate sales to earn commissions as an affiliate. Adsense pays you for displaying the ads and also for people clicking on the ads.
I think it is a good idea to apply both affiliate marketing and Adsense to earn revenue from you blogging. Affiliate marketing may generate more revenue if you have chosen a good niche and promote affiliated offers that your visitors will be interested in buying.
The good this about Adsense is that it adapts to your content and the location your visitor is surfing the internet from. Many affiliate links and offers will become absolute over time, but Adsense ads will remain up to date and targeted to your content.
If your blog posts are well written and get ranked highly on Google, you will earn revenue from Adsense. It is just a matter of scaling things up to increase your Adsense revenue over the months.
Adsense can be a nice earner for a person who enjoys writing blog post in specific niche areas with a large following and people willing to spend money on products and services related to that niche.
If you enjoy writing and carrying out research on various niches, you will me able to monetize your blog using Adsense. It will take some time and effort to earn a full-time income from Adsense alone. If you combine it with Affiliate Marketing, you will be in a good position to earn a full-time income from your blogging.
Adsense can also become a steady source of online passive income. There will be a lot of hard work to get it established. Once it is up and running, it will require less effort to maintain the earnings.
