Hey all is it possible to make $100 or even more a day from 1 site with JUST adsense? Assuming that there are 100 keywords within the site that are all ranked 1-3, and generating a lot of traffic, is it possible?

If not, how many sites do you have that's strictly adsense and making $100 or more a day?

I just want to have an estimation that way I can prepare myself for the final month of summer to go hard or go home =P lol.
#adsense #income #site

    everything is possible, and ya you can do it with the stats you've said if it's true that your 100 keywords get a lot of traffic, only a good ctr theme you'll need then

      I purchased CTR theme - so I'm hoping that will help.

    It's much easier to get multiple sites together earning $100/day than to get 1 site earning that much.

  • What to do you expect to earn from 1 site would $60 per month be easy or is that hard?

    thanks

      EMD: exact match domain.

      Find a killer keyword and try for an exact match domain for example: a bigger butt dot com. That key phrase gets 900 search's a day. bigger butt gets 9000 a day, but I used a as a stop word so I end up with a EMD that gets 11,000 searches a day

      9,900 monthly searches in exact match? If yes, then that's fantastic!

      EMD = Exact Match Domain

      A broad match will include your keyword + other words in any order. So for example if your keyword is 'dog training', broad matches will include any search terms with the word 'dog' and 'training'. So it can be 'training your dog' or 'dog runs in training', and so on. The number of searches per month for a broad match will include that kind of search terms.

      An exact match will only include searches for the exact keyword in the exact order, in this case 'dog training'.

    Well to be honest now days its damn hard to make $100/day with mini site. But its quite easy with few sites altogether.
    thanks

  • i guess everyone has there own opinion im totally confused on what to do...

    do i make 100+ or should i make 1 big one?
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[4363017].message }}
  • does it make much difference in adsense terms because im only wanting traffic to the site i know if i was going to get offline clients i would have to make sure it was exact or phrase but for this type of site what is the best /

      Yes it does. I suggest you check the exact match now and see what is the monthly searches per month. If it's 1,000 and above then it's great!

    You can even make 300$ per day with one website....

    Yes its possible...BUT

    In my opinion its a VERY BAD strategy...

    Because you put all your eggs in one basket so to speak...if your site gets de-indexed or penalised there goes ALL your earnings. Not only that, but its going to be MUCH more difficult to rank a site with THAT much traffic and THAT high CPC...And even if you do get it ranked, your risk of more competitors entering the market are higher, because the keyword is more competitve. Your maintenance cost (for SEO) is so much higher...

    I agree with the above posts...rather build multiple smaller sites, each doing $10 to $20 a day.

      I'm planning to work up to as many websites as I can but small steps at a time. One site that I'm working on will have 100 keywords, strictly adsense running on CTR theme. So far I've done 20 keywords and are ranking fast. I bought an older URL so that way it has more "authority/credibility". The main reason I want to see if I can generate THAT much income on one site with 100 keywords/100 articles in the site, is to eventually sell the site on flippa.

      I plan to make mini sites for residual income, and then a big site to sell. What do you guys think? - Thanks again everyone.

      This man speaks the truth. Diversify your portfolio of sites. Snag the low hanging fruit and then you can use that money you earn from those sites to get a bigger site rolling where you can start making the real money.

      #8 looks good with 1000 exact searches while the others are very very low. If you rank at the very top of google for keyword #8 which has 1,000 searches per month, we can say that around 40% will click on your link, which is 400 visitors per month. Out of the 400 visitors how many will click on your ads? That really depends on your CTR. But let's use a conservative example of 5% of the 400 clicked on your ads, that gives you 20 clicks per month. Multiply 20 by the cost per click. Then you will have a rough idea of how much potentially you can earn per month.

        sure it's possible. it's simply a question of how many deep pages / how much traffic you have. however to get to that level with AdSense only the site needs to be around top 10k alexa, depending on niche and layout. that's not very realistic if you are conventional and is typically only possible if you have an excellent concept and/or a unique service and/or many deep pages with unique content (tens of thousands+).

      Personally, if this was me...and the CPC for these keywords were well above $1...id build a site for the niche, and target each keyword on a separate page. That gives you a nice sized, "small" site with 11 pages of content. My adsense sites are all between 8 and 50 pages each.

      When building the site, add just one page each day. Slowly building your site up to being the full 11 pages. This makes things WAAY easier when moving up the SERPS. Content is ideal between 450 and 750 words per page.

      Remember to add additional content to each page as you build links to that page. Again it makes ranking much, much easier.

      Then when all your pages are finally ranked and getting some traffic...log into your Google Analytics account, and have a look to see which OTHER keywords you are also getting traffic from - these are your so called LSI keywords.

      Make a list of these keywords, and then create more pages on your site targeting these keywords as well...they will be a breeze to rank for!

      Especially considering you are new to Adsence, this will start making you some money, and give you the confidence and drive to take on bigger challenges

          Yeah that CPC is perfect (for me anyway) for a site of this size. You definitely will not earn $100 a day from it...but maybe a good $10 or more...

          And because it's easy to rank and get traffic, soon you will be on to the next site also earning you $10 or $20 a day...

          Before you know it, you got a whole portfolio of sites earning you a passive $5k a month...

          And don't listen to these other clowns saying Adsense is not a good idea. Sure it should not be your ONLY source of income, but it surely can be your primary source. Adsense is the easiest money you can make - theres no worries about copywriting and sales conversions - just keyword research and traffic. Google will only ban you if you try an "GAME" their system, or provide low quality content on useless sites. Make sure that you always abide by their TOS and that your sites are of quality and you will be fine.

            Hey wasnt expecting that much from one site yet anyways im hoping for $100-150 each month that be good for me then get a few sites im not going to try for $100 a day with one yet just hone my skills with small sites that make up a good income with several sites,

            Cant wait for that day making 5k a month with adsense good feeling i bet!

            all im doing at the minute is finding good keywords just came across some good info on Niche Pursuits | Find Business Ideas, Niche Websites, and Much More! dont know how good the info is but it read through it and seems good so using there methods for keyword research,

            im just adding one KW per post and making several post's got 5 in total now going to add more,

            My new keyword info abit better this time..

            2,400 exact searches no pages on first page of google with exact keyword in title, no sites have higher then pr of 2 and less then 10 backlinks to that page,
            and the cpc is £1.18

              If you start targeting the site's LSI keywords too once you start getting traffic, theres absolutely no reason your site cant be doing at least $10 a day...

              Especially with the new keywords you targeting, they are much better...those are the exact little gold nuggets I try and find in my keyword research.

              Also, I have not gone through the same keyword research "guide" you mentioned...but if their method is helping you find keywords as mentioned above, its gota be a pretty good strategy..

              Anyway, you seem like you have a solid head on your shoulders...and more importantly you have a plan that you are taking action on. And your estimates seem pretty conservative, this is always good...because then as your plan starts falling into place, you will see much better results than you initially anticipated...

              Keep at it...

    i worked out that if i get the above i will make £17 each month of that keyword which works out at $28 per month which isnt that bad but could be better,
    broad exact phrase which is the one to use as i have been told by different people to use each one? CONFUSED ha

    Can I ask if there is a good basic structure for an adsense site that someone could share
    with us here?
    For example, besides the index/home page, what other pages are a must have?
    I mean is it better to have an About Us page or does that stuff not really matter?

    If not, how many sites do you have that's strictly adsense and making $100 or more a day?

    I just want to have an estimation that way I can prepare myself for the final month of summer to go hard or go home =P lol.

    It is very possible but it will take time. It will also take a lot of work. My very first website just hit the 65$ per month mark but get this, the previous month was only 33$. It is growing every month based on work that I already completed several months ago. I expect it to break 100$ per month without me adding any more content. I wrote about 70 pages.

    I have now moved on to 2 more websites where I am now attempting to repeat these results. I am still testing and learning and I plan to eventually do a lot more work on my first site as well. It took my first site 3 months to START getting some traffic. It took 5 months to start getting consistent clicks, It took 7 months to hit the 65$ per month mark. But the site now grows in performance every month whether I touch it or not.

    I can tell you this. Write keyword targeted and well SEO'd pages, throw a few backlinks at each one, write a LOT of content and never stop. It will grow and you will begin to see what works and what doesnt. With that knowlege, you will be able to proceed in even more productive ways to grow your income even faster. All of my revenue is Adsense. My advice...Go hard, write as much content as you possibly can, target those keywords and you will see results.

    I was a total disbeliever when I started (look at my name...lol). If I can do it, anyone can!

    Yes, its very possible. I have about 200 adsense sites and I have 1 that makes over $100/day and a few others that are getting close.

    Google paid out over $8 billion last year in Adsense to website owners like you and me. So, $100/day is an extremely small amount compared to what Google is paying website owners. Think about sites like Ezinearticles.com that makes thousands of dollars per day with Adsense. There are thousands and thousands of websites making ALOT more than $100 per day with Adsense.

    In my opinion Adsense is THE best montization method - particularly for niche websites. Its the largest advertising network in the world with more money being spent on ads than anywhere else. Adsense is a goldmine!

    my theory is to go with ten sites that make 100 or maybe less if possible. There are definitely ppl out there with adsense sites that make 100,200,300 dollars a day but it takes alot more work and money and time. I personally do not like the idea of making 100 sites for adsense. One day your sites will go under review and it will be alot easier for google to ban you for 100 mfas then 10 sites that give some type of value to the user

      Why will Google ban me for 100 keywords for one site? Can you elaborate please?

    Hi
    Yes it is possible to make money using adsense but realistically $100 for one site is well over the top. I have a few sites that I have monetized and I am not making that much.
    Good luck to you - hope you are achieving.

    Bit of a strange question, because the answer is obviously yes.

    It's possible to earn $1,000 a day, $10,000 a day from one site with just adsense.

    You just need the traffic, ad placement and of course, if you target higher paying keywords, you'll need less traffic to achieve your $100 a day goal.

    The highest adsense-earning site on the internet is plentyoffish.com, which makes approximately $10,000 daily (don't expect to get as much traffic or make as much money as this site). If you can reach just $10/day in adsense, I'd call that a success.

    $100 a day is possible with one site. Just depends on your niche, ranking etc.

    More is even possible if you have traffic!

    It's not so much the number of sites, but the content and the audience, depending on the CPC you could make as much with a few sites than plenty with very low CPC

    Adsense or is it No Sense? The problem is that the big G can switch off your adsense account at any time and they keep your hard earned money. Thousands of people have had their accounts closed. G has so much control that they don't even look at YOUR appeal against their decision.

    My advice is to have adsense as one income stream and have several other streams of income, just in case pulls the plug one day.

    If you can get around $2 per click which is easy enough in some niches and a 25% CTR (again easy from my experience) you'll need 200 visitors per day to make $100/daily.

    Getting the 200 visitors a day is the hard part.

    It is possible to earn $100 a day if you rank high in a strong keyword, that is a keyword with high search volume.

    earning on adsense has no limit..but for one website..
    its hard to earn adsense $100 a day.. you can achieve that but you need to have more efforts and need time to earn that kind of amount for only one site.

    This site school-grants(.)org only earn for approximately $2000 per month
    that would make possibly $67/day divided by the Avg Cpc which is 8.46 so we can calculate that the site has only 8 or 9 clicks per day on his ads.

    the keyword school grants have 8,100 global searches and 6,600 local searches with $8.46 Avg CPC..

    the site school-grants(.)org is already 3 years with PR5 and have 3,000+ backlinks.

    they earn that kind of amount but you can see that they also made lots of effort for their site. maybe investment (like buying links from PR5+)

    As for the beginners on trying adsense. dont expect too much.. its not easy to compete on high CPC keywords,

    and its not a good idea to have 100 keywords,

    You would be better focus on 1 best keywords only. That keyword will be used as the anchor text of all your backlinks so you have a better change of getting on first page in google for that keyword.

    If its really have you that you have 100 keywords for your site and all is on top , thn i think its possible , but i think if you have multiple sites with traffic , thn its possible to get 100$ per day ...

  • What does LSI stand for trying to get to terms with the terminology, be good if i was making that off each site and have 20 sites itl all mount up got 2 sites now and just found some excellent keywords with high search volume and very low comp think the hardest site on page one for the main keyword has 8 backlinks and the rest have 0-1,

    Yeah its really good a lot of content im very new to this and its starting to help me but got a long way to go but getting better each day...

    Thanks.. im not wasting my time on big niches too much comp rather target very small niches with 1k+ searches each month with £1 cpc+

    Im hoping to get about 10 sites popped up each month.. obviously some will make money some wont but with the cost's of setting up the site its not a big deal..

    LSI => Latent Semantic Indexing
    Basically it's just a fancy term used to refer to keywords that the search engines find highly related to your main keyword.

    An easy way to find some LSI keywords, is by going to the Google keyword tool and entering your main keyword. Sort the list by relevance...and the first few keywords that are listed directly below your keyword is considered LSI keywords. Because Google finds them highly relevant to your main keyword.

    The way I personally use LSI keywords:

    1. To help my main keyword page rank easier
    When creating content for my main keyword that im targeting, I make sure to use at least two LSI keywords in the article. Sometimes if its a blog post, I'll devote two entire posts targeting just the LSI keywords - but on the same page have a longer, more in depth article targeting my main keyword.

    The theory behind this technique is that the search engines are more "SURE" that the page is about your main keyword - because not only does the page target your main keyword, there is other information on the page too about HIGHLY RELEVANT topics (LSI). By doing this, it is supposed to be easier to rank that page for your main keyword (In theory anyway!)

    2. To expand my site once it's getting traffic:
    Once my site is getting traffic, I'll head on over to my Google Analytics account and have a look which keywords im actually getting traffic from. Some people may argue that these are simply long tail variations of the main keyword - and they would be right - but they are also LSI keywords, because obviously if the page is getting traffic from people searching for those keywords, the search engines think they are relevant to my content and the site as a whole.

    So what i do then is build new content pages on my site, each targeting JUST these keywords. And because the site is already getting some traffic from these keywords, the search engines feel they are already relevant to the site - so when you set up a new page targeting these keywords specifically its an absolute breeze to rank for!!

    The traffic gained from individual keywords like this is obviously a lot less than the traffic from your main keyword...but it quickly adds up. In fact, most of my sites have more than 70% of their traffic coming from these type of LSI keywords that I never planned on even targeting initially..

      Hey thanks for the info never knew about that but i will be making good use of it now : ) sounds like a excellent idea to get more traffic even if the LSI only had 300 searches each if your taking 40% for being #1 on google thats another 120 searches a month so if your getting a few LSI it would soon mount up..

      Does this theory work? il defo give it a try thanks for inside tip

      How much monthly searches must these keywords have before you build pages for them?

        I never look at their searches...Google's keyword tool is notoriously inaccurate with these keywords. All i do is make sure that the page on my site that is getting traffic for those particular keywords is not ranked high up in the SERPS for that LSI keyword already. I then build a page targeting it specifically, and that new page ranks very easily in the top 10.

        AND...once the page starts ranking for the LSI, you will always find new longtail keywords that the page ALSO ranks for...driving EVEN more traffic...

        As I mentioned before, on some of my sites, 80% of my traffic comes from these types of keywords - which I never even thought of targeted in the first place when i started building the site..

          Hi, I don't really get it. Hopefully you can help me with this. So I checked on my stats and I have like more than 30 LSI and longtail keywords that I didn't target that bring visitors to my site, but each of these keywords only bring 1 visitor, is it still worth the time to build pages around those keywords?

    We should never lose sight though, Adsense is passive income. Perhaps looking beyond this to a more permanent revenue stream should be our goals.

      Why would you think Adsense can not be a permanent source of revenue?

      And what type of "permanent" sources of revenue did you have in mind?

    Yes it is possible 101% if your 100 keywords in the top 3 ranking and one important thing is that your all keywords CPC must high not low then you can make $100 a day guranteed.
