There aren’t any secrets when it comes to knowing how to make $100 per day from Adsense.
You only need two things = good content and traffic.
These are the two pieces of the puzzle. If you put them together and wait a little while for SEO or social traffic to kick in – you can start making money with Adsense rather easily.
There are other factors you can look at including:
- Finding a profitable niche for display advertisements
- Cost per click (CPC)
- Alternatives to Adsense that might pay out better
- Ideal ad placement on your site/blog
What’s most important is how much traffic you can drive to your own content that’s currently displaying ads. The more traffic you can drive the more money you’re going to make.
By now you must be wondering:
How much traffic do you need to make $100 per day with Adsense?
The answer is that it depends on your niche and quality of traffic.
Some people will be able to make that amount with just 100k visitors per month while other people will need a million or more.
On one of my sites that earns about $10/day I get 100k visitors, or around 3,000 daily views. It’s nowhere near earning $100 but if it was in a higher-paying niche then I could definitely be making more money with that amount of traffic.
It depends on the niche you’re in, since some niches will have ads that pay more per click than others, and where your traffic is coming from.
Making $100 Every Day with Adsense
The first thing you’re going to want to do if you want to start making money with Adsense regularly is to calculate the average RPM of your website, or basically how much you can earn per every 1000 visitors.
For things like affiliate marketing or CPA you’re going to earn a lot more per every 1000 visitors, but they also include more work upfront and long-term maintenance compared to an Adsense site that can turn into a passive income earner.
To calculate your RPM you need to look at your:
- Current website traffic
- The CTR (click through rate) of your ads
- The CPC (cost per click) that each ad offers
On my main Adsense site I’m getting about $5 per 1000 views, with the number increasing depending on the clicks i’m getting, and on average you can expect to get anywhere between $1 and $10 for general niches and much higher ($20-$100) for higher-paying niches with more competition.
Being able to predict your RPM is going to allow you to make a better estimate when it comes to finding different niches to go after as well as how much you can expect to make depending on your levels of traffic.
For example, if you’re able to make an average of $5 from every 1000 visitors then you can estimate that you would need 20000 visitors every day just to make $100.
This isn’t going to be a completely accurate calculation, more of a general estimate, but it can still help to give you a good idea of the levels of traffic you need to make serious money with display advertisements.
Traffic Needed for $100/day
Let’s take a look at some more examples to see what kind of traffic that you’ll need if you want to make $100 every day or more.
In my example I’m going to use a reasonable CPC of just $1 and a click through rate of 2.5%.
I’ve seen quite a few sites use higher numbers in their calculations but they aren’t as reasonable to achieve, especially as beginner or someone just getting started in making money online.
To start off, we need to determine how many clicks you’re going to need to reach $100.
If each click is going to give you $1 then you will need 100 clicks, on average, to reach your goal.
With a click through rate of just 2.5% traffic that you need will be around:
100 clicks / 0.025 CTR = 4000 visitors
With 4,000 visitors it’s possible to earn $100 in one day, given ideal conditions, so every month you would need approximately 120,000 visitors to make $100/day with Adsense display ads.
Keep in mind that being able to maintain a CPC of $1 or more might not be achievable or sustainable for you and this is going to have a big impact on how much you’re able to actually earn.
One of my sites only gets a CPC of about $0.40 so even with decent traffic I still don’t earn that much on a regular basis.
CTR, or click through rate, also has an impact on how much you’ll earn and even the 2.5% CTR I mentioned in my example might be high for some niches (my CTR is about 1.44% on my best earning site).
Some niches are obviously better suited to use Adsense with and others are going to work better with affiliate marketing or other money earning methods so you’ll want to try out a few different things before settling on just one method.
Earning More with Adsense
Like I already mentioned, the examples that I have provided up above are what you are able to achieve under ideal conditions and many of you, myself included, are not able to achieve such great numbers.
It’s a good idea to start with a more reasonable target, such as $1, $5, or $10 per day with Adsense and strive to meet smaller goals at first before moving on to something bigger.
Something that I haven’t really mentioned is that along with great content you also need to focus on getting traffic to your websites before you can even really start making any money.
Even with 100 visitors per day, the earnings with display ads aren’t that great and smaller sites are going to be much better off focusing on affiliate products unless you’re very confident in your skills of driving quite a bit of traffic.
To put it in perspective, even with my example up above of 4000 visitors every day you are still going to need a lot of high quality content that’s targeting high traffic keywords to get the visitors that you need.
You can either write one amazing article that’s able to bring in that amount of visitors each day or focus on the smaller ones such as writing 100 articles that are able to bring in 40 visitors each day or even just 1000 articles that are able to bring in an extremely achievable 4 visitors each day.
With this amount of content and effort that’s going to go into building your site you’re not only going to be able to make a lot of money but you’re also creating a digital asset that you can potentially sell in the future or keep while you work on building something else.
You should also check out the different Adsense alternatives, especially once you start getting a lot of traffic, because many of them actually pay quite well and can help you to earn more money for the visitors you’re already getting.
As long as you’re putting in the work there’s no reason why you won’t be able to start making money with Adsense after just a few months of getting started.
Once you start writing and posting content, getting backlinks, and promoting your website or blog you’re really going to start seeing the traffic flowing in and this is going to result in you starting to make some money online.
Too many people quit just after a few months but as long as you’re consistent with it and actually work hard then success is all but guaranteed.
Even if you’re someone that’s very busy you can even outsource the website building and content creation or you can just buy a website that is already made for you that just needs some regular content posted to maintain its forward motion.
Either way, just get started as soon as you can because you never know what’s going to happen and it’s better to try and fail than never have tried at all.
