My Ever Top Adsense Earning on August 2012, What is the Lesson?

Okay, this is an interesting post about blog earnings. I should have published this much earlier since this is related to August earning.  I have achieved my ever highest monthly Google AdSense earning on August 2012. I’m happy to share some of the facts about it with you. Google AdSense is still my main income source and I’m happy with the performance. The few changes I did on ad slots reflected in earning.

My Google AdSense earning of August 2012 was 1276.29$, approximately $41 daily earning. I’m not sure how you are treating $41 daily earning, but it is really a big money for me if I convert it to my country currency.

summary earning

If you could remember, I seriously concentrated in blogging from March 2010 and $33.59 was the AdSense income of March 2010. So, after around two and half years, the $33.59 went up to $1276.29. I’m not sure whether I can call this as an great increase, but I’m happy with the increase specially from single blog and I’m a part time blogger yet.


What is the Lesson?

Google AdSense is a great money making program for bloggers which is mainly connected to type of content and traffic (visitors). There are people make good money with affiliate business, but you need specific skills to write about products and get audience for it. But making money with AdSense is very easy, you just publish the content and get traffic. Google AdSense will convert the traffic as money.


1) Do you believe in higher Google AdSense CPC?

Will you believe me if I tell that one click brought me around 22$? Yes, that happened this time. I do not want to show the screen shot of the CPC and post URL because of Adsense TOS, but I’m sure you will believe me on this.

2) 72$ on a day

That is again a cool dashboard view to see.

daily earning


I have told above two points to make you believe in Google AdSense, because still I get emails complaining about low CPC and earnings. It is not AdSense fault, it is your blog’s fault.


3) Do not show two or all three ad slots on same screen

Try to show only one AdSense ad slot on same screen view. For example, show the first ad unit on initial view, then when the user scrolls down and the first unit disappears, shows the second slot. Do the same thing for 3rd slot. This is what I have learned recently. This gives more balance and options to readers.


4) Give importance to AdSense

If you have other types of banner ads or pay per click ads on your blog, give importance to AdSense ads only, if you want to make money from it. Which means, place it in main slots, do not mix it up with others and do not place next to next with other ads.

Do not give more choices to your readers. Do not expect readers to do ‘either one of it’, instead make them to do ‘one action only’.


5) Keywords (topic) and Source of traffic country is still very important

You can’t make more money from AdSense with any type of keywords. I already explained earlier how Google AdSense works and importance of keywords. Though, you can have a blog or blog posts without targeting specific keywords, but the topic/niche of your blog is very important and should have profitable keywords.

Not all traffic from all countries convert well in AdSense. Not all advertisers target audience globally, most of the advertisers target only specific territory or countries with higher CPC ads. So, when your visitors reach your blog from these countries, you have more chances to make more money with Google AdSense.


6) Seasonal earnings

Yes, may be because of we are nearing the end of year (Q4 is starting up) the earnings could be high. Advertisers are willing to pay more on their ads which converts well for bloggers. In a year, January and December do not make same amount of money from AdSense with same traffic, there is definite difference. That is the way AdSense works.


Do you use and depend more on Google AdSense? then I’m sure you could take few points from this post.

Have fun.

Note: I know what you are thinking, Sept 2012 adsense earning is already more the August earning, but I had to publish this post. 🙂

  1. I envy you Dinesh and guys that make websites in english. I make around $100 a day, but I have 50,000 page views a day. So my average CPC (Latin America countries) is $0,09. I have only 1 site in english (I’m not confident to write in english) and sometimes it has clicks of $0,50 and I jump of happiness.

    • Well I feel kind of identified with Daniel’s comment, in fact that is the main reason that I switched my website targets to the English community instead of Spanish community, the differences of PPC is way too much. For instance one click of one of my website written in Spanish is about $0,11 average and can go up to $0,36 some times but in the other hand with one of my English websites my average click is $2.25 USD and can go up to $17.50 in some cases for just one click.
      Bottom line is: that any webmaster should consider English Market as a primary target if you want to make good revenue.
      PS: Great Blog Dinesh!

  2. Hi Dinesh,

    Thank you for sharing your earnings again. It inspires me to keep trying. I’m learning a lot with my new blog. I’ve made about $5 in my first month, but I’ve also only had about 10,000 views in the whole month. As I generate more traffic, I’m sure this will go up. I’m also interested in starting another blog with better paying keywords soon. Once I do that, I think I’ll maintain 3 blogs. My first one for my non-profit, this game guide, and my future blog.

    • Thanks for the message Matthew.
      I have few suggestions for your blog, I will send in coming days. You should be making more money with 10,000 views.
      Good luck for your current and future projects.

      • Sir i just start the adsence i want to earn daily 50 or 100 $ how can we earn this money?
        and i dont know how can i give add at my video my videos have adds but may be these adds are free not pay me so how can i place adds which give me income and tell me to imporove adsence.

  3. Great achievements Dinesh!

    There’s no surprise that you’ve got 22 dollars from adsense for one click. A friend i know of once had around 29 dollars from just one click as well.

  4. Impressive. I have to tell you that i started my blog back in 2010 as well but did not take it seriously until I wrote a post in May that received a ton of visitors and was first in search results. That month my revenue jumped. Then I saw the potential and started spending more time on my blog. I have learned a lot from your blog.

    I receive about 40000 pageviews a month (up from about 4000 in April 2012). However, my CTR is very low (~0.4%) and make less than $100 a month from Adsense (not my primary source of revenue). I know that this is not a good number. It would be a great help if you take a look at my site and let me know if you find anything that I can improve on. Thanks for your time!.

    And btw, I am earning $5000 plus per month from Adsense while two years back it was 150 or so per month :(. I have experimented a lot with Adsense placements and found that the large block on post top converts the best and yeah the seasonal trends totally suck

  15. Hi,
    Dear Dinesh,
    I recently signed up for adsense… First CTR and CPC both were really low.
    Then i changed the ad spots and ad formats ..Now CTR has alhamdulilah increased to 3% but CPC is still 0.10$.
    I dont know whats bad and i am really very sad that what to do…:(
    Kindly help me

  16. Hi Dinesh, I am really impressed with your earnings and work. I have recently started a Fitness blog but i am making very few cents per click. Can you please suggest me, what is wrong with my AD placement or my blog?

    Thanks 🙂

  17. That’s really impressive achievement Dinesh. Currently my site just reach 3 figures income from Adsense, and it’s still more to go in order to reach 4 figures monthly just like yours.

    Thanks for the sharing. 🙂

  18. thanks alot for your informative tips. well, i was getting good payment via adbrite. the adbrite is close. now i have to concentrate again on chitika and google adsense.

  19. 41$ is much for someone from Egypt like me.
    But yes I believe that Google AdSense is a way to earn money, but not fast way to earn money.
    I also believe that (Keeping your blog up-to-date, Ads relevant to your blog content and Ads position in the blog) are the secrets that make better money.

    But new bloggers must know that (Making 0.05$) is also called “MAKING MONEY” don’t despair or get bored.
