    It depends on your keywords & how much is the CPC for that keyword.

        when i was doing kw research, it was 1.5, but now it is only 0.7
        The 1.5 was a rough estimate, I am assuming most likely provided by the Google Keyword Tool.

        Remember you only get 68% of the click, and unfortunately your not told what the advertiser paid. Thus an advertiser may be quoted a buck fifty, but they may only be paying 30 whopping pennies for the click.

        Why? Because Adwords is like a sexy a auction house. If you want higher percentages you need to target higher paying keywords.

        That said, affiliate marketing pays far more money than Adsense ever will, and that's my two cents!

        You're going to fail. If you're afraid of failure then you do not belong in the Internet Marketing Business. Period.

    When you start building backlinks, remember that they serve 2 purposes:

    1) Help your rankings in Google

    2) Drive traffic!

    Even though YouTube video backlinks are great and all, one of the best benefits is that they can drive lots of traffic!

    Don't let your only traffic source be Google. Wayyyyyyyyyyy to many marketers rely on Google alone, then their business gets wiped out with the next Panda update.

    Just make sure that since you're using Adsense, don't drive tons of paid traffic to your site all at once. Google's pretty smart and generally doesn't like this.

    What's wrong? That's EASY!

    1) You picked the wrong keyword. I never go below $2-$3/click. Ever.
    2) If you are not #1 for your main keyword, either massively step up your backlink game and content game or pack it up and go home.
    3) You're spending too much time on $0.20 clicks. Go buy some .edu links from the wso section of the forum and let the site age. Then, go back and do some research and find an easier, more profitable niche and start over. Then do it 20 more times with different niches. Then, come back here and give me a thanks and post your success story.

    Adsense can be frustrating because there are so many variables that you don't have control over.

    Assuming you have visitors that do click, the price for that click varies by day, season, month, week, hour... it all depends on who is bidding and what they are bidding on. Not only that, when you have multiple ads appearing in any ad unit, the visitor may click on the highest priced ad or the cheapest ad.

    The statistics that Google gives you are really important. Keep an eye on a few things like the average CPC, and the CTR. If those things are staying stable, then driving more traffic should increase your income. If they aren't stable, you could drive more traffic but overall make less money.

    Be patient, it's hard to get a handle on, and if you can, don't put all your eggs in one basket.
