What are Your Standard AdSense Metrics?

I am thinking about going after some easy SEO kws I found, here are the metrics:

Searches/month and Approximate CPC
9900-0.91
4400-1.30
8100-1.73

I calculate in my head that if I can rank #1 in Google:
I will get 60% of the searches to my site.
9900 * .6=5940 v
5940 visitors * .03 ctr=178.2 people clicking per month

And then I heard that you only get paid about 25% of the "Approximate CPC"?

So 178.2*(0.91*0.25)=40

If all of these hypotheticals turn out to be true, the site would only make $40 per month.

How would you guys say this hypothetical scenario compares with reality?
(I've never made any AdSense money)

    I use number of searches*CPC*.01*expected ranking multipler (ERM).

    For ERM, 1st position is 2.0, 2nd position is 1.25, and anything less is one. I rarely target a micro niche site that I am not confident of ranking in the top two spots, unless it is especially juicy. So my formula would give

    Site 1 - 90.09/month
    Site 2 - 57.20/month
    Site 3 - 140.13/month

    Then just add any extra from the multiplier, and your set. In my experience, my sites earn fairly close to this ballpark with an adsense niche site. If you are building out a larger authority site, this may be wildly inaccurate.

    Hey Op!

    We created a niche site profit calculator we use to estimate the potential for our niche sites. We based it on actual sites we own, which is now in the thousands. You should expect any estimate to be rough, but this may be helpful for you:

    If anyone is using the CPC from the Google Keyword Tool, your doing it wrong.

      Please expand on this.

      I've noticed the CPC estimates from the keyword tool to be wildly inaccurate for Adsense for content but I don't know of a better alternative.

          Where is that please? I've never heard of it before.

          Edit: I see it know in the traffic estimator, I would just never have tried it based on its description

    What do you actually get paid from the CPC? Is it roughly 25% (that's what heard soewhere)?

    For any reasonable metrics the AdsenseFlippers calculator shows all sites as pretty much worthless.
