    Is it really happening, though? Can you give us a link to a specific example earning “a couple of thousands every month”?

    johnchow.com

    He talks about the money here:
    http://www.johnchow.com/a-time-to-give-back/

    Feedburner shows 1300 readers
    Google shows 85,000 backlinks
    Technorati rank of about 1,700

    That’s how much money he makes, that’s how popular his blog is.

    One thing about adsense is you have to realize it’s a very small percentage at the top who are making any money from it.

    John Chow has a good post on how much people are making off of Ad Sense here:
    http://www.johnchow.com/the-internets-biggest-google-whores/

    Once you hit the 8th top person is jumps from $300,000 to $10,000. And it keeps going like that. You have to be a very significant website to live off of adsense (or you have to have a lot of smaller websites, hence sploggers).

    But a few on that whore list started companies. But I still don’t know how anyone makes money off Adsense. I know alot of Myspace glitter graphic sites that get millions of hits a month. So those types of sites can make money off Adsense. But Google doesn’t mail out a check unless it’s over $100. So most bloggers I know don’t make any money off Adsense but they do off sponsors and affiliates.

    I know a fellow who gets over a 100,000 hits to to his non-profit social newtworking website every month.

    He is making about about $500/month from adsense.

    He is not running the site for the money.

    At 2 cents a hit – imagine the number of people you need to hit your site, and then hit the adsense word.

    Let me help you
    a) Say 2% hit an adsense word.
    b) Say you get 1,000 hits a day.

    Therefore 2% of 1,000 is 20 x $0.02 = $0.40
    If you get 10,000 hits a DAY – $4.00
    If you get 100,000 hits a DAY – $40.00
    If you get 1,000,000 hits a DAY – $400.00

    I think it would be more cost effective to work at Starbucks rather than make money off of Adsense.

    Thanks for that clarification. I used to work for Starbucks and I can second that! Also, free coffee!

    drmike,
    Where the heck did you see 3 threads about adsense that I started? Don’t write comments if you don’t have evidence. Yes, I have two, one was about possible competition with blogger and one was about poll. What else did you see? So,read and research before you make such superficial comments.

    Others,
    While I do agree that most people find it hard to make money, one has to be able to optimize in order to get the most out of adsense. While most clicks offer less than a dime per click, there are quite many which offer more than a dollar per click. So, it is not necessarily true that you have to have more than 100,000 hits to earn 500 bucks a month. I know a friend of mine who runs a blog related to finance and he has about 3000 hits a day and he gets about 80 bucks a day which will amount to about 2400 dollars a month.
    Not bad huh?

    Doesn’t adesense also pay per impression and not just clicking an ad? When I had it ages ago they paid per click and also per impression (pageview).

    Not all of the ads clicked give you $.02. On a forum I’m on, they’ve got a little click-ring so that people can try and make some extra cash off of AdSense. Yes, $.02 is the lowest they get per ad, but there’re rare ones that give you $1-2 for just a click.

    Dream, you had three threads on Adsense. If you can’t remember them, I’ll be happy to link to them for you. Right now I have more important things to deal with than your short time memory loss.

    A 2% hit rate is very high for Adsense. Very high. You have to be sitting there blocking advertisers you don’t want who pay very little for their adverts for nonense words. When I put Adsense on my blog, I got nothing but ‘Blog’ advertisers. Those got blocked.

    On a related topic FTC has made the ruling that pay-per-post is illegal. Whither through the creation of fake personalities, fake blogs, or paying people on the sly to shill your product, all of these techniques are at their heart, duplicitous. And its the last of those that are the target of this FTC statment.

    If you want adverts, please head over to wp.org and find a host.

    Thanks,

    drmike,
    I am still waiting for you to display evidences from your long term memory. Check my profile, it shows only 4 threads that are started by this guy called “dreamnepal.” And, only two of them are related to adsense.

    So, where did I lose memory? Or is it your hyperactive
    brain- functioning?

    @dreamnepal
    This is a small matter whether it be 2 or 3 threads and drmike keeps track of so many threads that it’s not surprising that his count was off by one. This is also the season of good will. So is there any possibility that you could be a big enough person to let this go and just be nice? I truly hope so … please … let it go and be of good cheer.

    timethief,
    Thats definitely a good gesture on your part. I would love to move with the breeze.However, he claimed I was suffering from memory loss. I corrected him, but still he wouldn’t buzz. So, I certainly have the rights to ask for evidences,don’t I?

    I ain’t being bitchy out here but I can’t stay idle and let it go when people start false accusations and stay stubborn.

    The English idiom “the squeaky wheel gets the grease” is descriptive in nature and not pejorative but you wrongly stated it was name calling when it isn’t. I assume that English is not your mother tongue or you would not have made this erroneous claim.

    You asked for an opinion in another thread. http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=5947&page=2&replies=37
    I stated mine including Matt’s official statement in it which you thanked me for here in this thread, but then you insulted me for quoting it in the other thread.

    Thus far in the other of the two threads you started on the same subject i.e. “adsense” you have falsely accused me of name calling, of being rude and you have also called me a B****.

    You have no right to demand anything from any of us but demanding is what you seem to want to do. Therefore my decision is to respectfully announce that I can take no more of this. I am terminating all communication with you.

    Thanks. I have no motivation to further my arguments with you either.

    “…Wrongly stated…” True, when you end up at the defensive line. At least I can regret if I did something wrong rather than continue supporting stubborn attitude.

    The End.
