Most of the bloggers use Google Adsense as one of the first money-making programs in their blogging career. Even now it remains as the main income source for some of the famous blogs and bloggers. Google AdSense is a well-known, hassle-free and robust CPC (Cost Per Click) money-making program you can try without any issues. Unfortunately, making the right amount of money from Adsense is not suitable for all bloggers around the globe. It is not so easy now as to how it used to work a few years ago. Let me give some ideas and calculations to make 10 dollars per day from AdSense in 2020.
Things are changing; readers are smart enough to differentiate the advertisements and links on your website, and many browsers support ‘ad blockers’ which dramatically impact the Adsense earnings negatively. As bloggers, we do not have many options and control most of the time.
Making 10 dollars daily from Adsense should be the first target for any new bloggers in their journey. That will give approximately $300 monthly that should be enough to pay your hosting fees, other expenses and take some profit to your pocket. Here, I discuss a few crucial points and show you how to make 10 dollars per day from Adsense.
There are specific requirements I will be suggesting below based on my 10+ years experience with Google Adsense. I’m not going to say how to create a website to make 10 dollars per day or how to select the topic for that. I’m going to say what are the requirements to make 10 dollars per day from your existing blog (or even the new blog you are going to start) from Google Adsense.
Before dive deep into the matter, see the below screenshot.
You must say ‘Wow’ by now, that’s right. One click brings me more than 10$, and it is from my Google analytics dashboard. That indicates Google Adsense still works and there are high potential topics/keywords in the market which can bring higher CPC earnings. So your task should be effortless in making 10$ per day from Adsense.
That is the power of Google Adsense. Your blog’s topic and traffic source country play significant roles in the Adsense earnings, I will be covering them below.
Understand the Terms
There are few measurements in Google Adsense, like CTR (Click Through Rate), CPC ( Cost Per Click) and RPM ( Revenue per Thousand impressions). CTR and CPC are individual factors, while RPM is a collective measurement. That means, if you are getting good CPC and CTR, you will have a good RPM. In another case, if you have an excellent CPC but very low CTR, then the RPM will be less. So, RPM is the ultimate factor to see whether your blog is doing good with Google Adsense (of course you must consider increasing the CPC and CTR all the time which will directly increase the RPM).
So, what is RPM? It means how much money your blog is making from 1000 page views.
If you are making 8$ from 2000 Pageviews daily, then your RPM is 4$ ( 8 x 1000/2000). We will be connecting the RPM and discussing how to make 10 dollars from Adsense below. The RPM can be different for each type of blog. For example, technology, news, entertainment, free stuff, financing and education blogs will have a different range of RPM (because the CPC and CTR would be different for each blog).
I would say 3.5$ to 5$ RPM is reasonable and you should target more than that. If you are making 2 to 3 $ RPM, then you should spend more time to increase the RPM.
The Math to Earn 10 Dollars per Day from Adsense
So, if we assume 3.5$ RPM, you will make 3.5$ from every 1000 Pageviews daily. To get 10$ per day from AdSense, let us multiply this by 3 (even though it will reach 10.50$) to get 10$ round figure per day. That means, your blog has to generate 3000 page views per day to make 10$ per day from Google Adsense.
Is it a difficult job to make 3000 page views per day? It may look tough for any new bloggers and even for the existing bloggers who are struggling to generate good traffic for their blogs.
Let me break down the 3000 Pageviews per day like below,
- 30 articles on your blog which can generate 100 PVs per day
- 60 articles can generate 50 PVs per day
- 120 articles can generate 25 PVs per day.
Do you think article numbers are increasing, then how about this?
- 15 articles can generate 200 PVs per day,
- Even just 3 pillar articles can generate 1000 PVs per day.
You decide to target a suitable scenario for you. The more articles you publish, the higher chances you have to reach your 10$ per day from Adsense target.
In the end, we need genuine 3000 page views daily to make 10 dollars per day from Google Adsense, assuming the RPM is 3.5$ and very importantly, your blog is meeting the following requirements.
Other Factors to Decide on How to Earn 10 Dollars per Day from Adsense
1) Your niche and keywords are vital.
Your blog should have higher or reasonably paying keywords. Though we can’t say what the best CPC amount is, I would say you should make sure your average CPC is higher than 0.25$. If you are targeting higher CPC keywords, then this rate will be higher so the RPM too. In my experience, anything related to ‘Free’ will not bring good CPC.
You do not need to start a blog or straightaway target these keywords to increase the Adsense CPC (it is very tough actually), but you can get an idea which topic can bring good CPC to make 10 dollars from Adsense per day by seeing above image.
Google AdWords keyword planner is another free resource to find out the CPC of your relevant keyword. I have already published a guide in below link, highly recommended to read this post.
2) Your blog may require around 2100 PVs via search engines daily.
Organic traffic is critical to make money from Adsense. We are assuming that the average search engine traffic for a blog will be somewhere around 70%. So out of our required 3000 PVs per day, 70% is 2100 PVs.
You must make sure around 70% of your daily traffic is coming via search engines. Because these are the new users to your blog probably click the Adsense ads.
3) Use above the fold ad placement
No matter how many ads you are using in your blog, make sure at least one advertisement is placed above the fold. ‘Above the fold’ is the place a visitors see without scrolling down. I think the ads with 300×250 or 336×260 size below the headline and above (or wrapped by) the content works better for higher CTR and RPM.
Also, Google serves high paying ads to the ad slot which loads first on a website. So, make sure to utilize this ad slot well to earn your 10 dollars daily from Adsense.

4) Geographical Traffic Source is Very Important
Even if your blog is meeting the above all requirements, but not getting the readers from specific countries, then the CPC will be less. That will hamper your 10$ per day target. Clicks from some countries, like the USA, Canada, UK, Australia pay much higher than other south Asian countries. So, even if your blog is getting 3000 PVs from Google daily, but the majority of traffic is coming from South Asian or less paying CPC countries, then I doubt you will get the 3.5$ RPM rate.
Therefore, it is always advisable to target a topic which can attract all readers from around the world.
The 2100 daily visits via search engines can be different for each blog depending on the content, ad placement and niche/keyword selection. If you have high paying keywords and getting good search engine traffic from around the world (mainly USA), then maybe two or three clicks will be enough to earn 10 dollars daily.
