How Much Can I Expect to Make Using Adsense

Many people begin their online business with the mistaken notion that they can make hundreds, or even thousands of dollars each month by using Adsense. And most of them learn very quickly that it doesn't happen that way. Of course, we have all heard the hype about the guy who started a site last week and is drawing millions of hits. It's reported that he is making a five figure monthly income. Although I'm sure this happens on occasion, it is not the norm.

Adsense income is like any other aspect of your Internet business, it takes time to build traffic to your site and as traffic builds, so will your Adsense income. In order to maximize your Adsense revenue, you've got to include lots of fresh content to build traffic. I include twenty to thirty different articles along with an RSS feed. Each article resides on it's own page within the site. On each page, display the maximum number of ads that Google allows. They currently allow three ads per page.

Make sure that you give your Adsense links a prominent place on each page. Do not bury them at the bottom of the page. Be creative, add some intermixed into the middle of your content and place one at the top. But remember, do not use more than is allowed.

In addition, you've got to add fresh content regularly. On a monthly basis, I replace articles that received few page views with others that I think may do better. A good stat counter can provide you with this information.

Even using the techniques above, you will not get rich overnight. But, with a good marketing strategy, your Adsense income should increase steadily over time.

Many people ask me about free marketing methods to increase traffic and Adsense revenue. One technique involves writing articles. Write at least one article each day and submit it to the largest twenty-five article directories. The more articles that you submit, the more success you will see. Submitting three articles per day is much more productive if you can write with that kind of volume. Every article you write should be related to the content provided on your site and each article should contain between 400 and 500 words. Make sure that you include an enticing link to your site in the resource box.

But how much can you expect to make from Adsense by marketing with articles? Again, it is not a sprint, it is a marathon. As a very rough rule of thumb, you can expect to make about $.20 (that's twenty cents) per month (yes, that's per month) for each article you write. If you've written 10 articles, you can expect to make about $2.00 per month if your site is nicely optimized for Adsense income.

By the time you've written 100 articles, you can expect to make about $20.00 per month. As you can see, you won't get rich quickly using this method. However, by using traffic building techniques in addition to article marketing, you can increase your Adsense revenue very nicely. So, what are you waiting for, get busy!

I don't really agree with you. I started making about $20 a week just 3 months after I started my first blog. And I had about 70 articles at that time. I think that the best way to attract visitors is to choose a single topic on which to blog and make sure that you put the keywords of that topic in every title of your articles. There is no better website marketing than making your website searchable from Google and other search-engines.
