Writing Online - How Much Money Can You Make on Adsense?

By Edited May 5, 2015 1 1

The most common question new writers have when they sign up with a revenue sharing site is how much earnings potential there is for good writers. The answer to that question depends on several different factors such as what topics you like to write about and how engaging your writing is. In general, as long as you write high quality articles that provide valuable information to your readers, you will develop a strong following and have a very good probability of being successful. The good news is, there really is no fixed upper limit to the amount of money you can make on Adsense. In fact, there are some pretty larger companies where much if not all of their revenue comes directly from Google Adsense! With that being said, it certainly is not quick and easy to make a fortune and it requires a balanced combination of writing skill, creativity, and SEO to make it happen.

Keys to Making Money on Adsense

Here a few important things that will help you become a successful Adsense publisher and maximize the amount of money you can make. While everyone has their own angle on it, earning money online through advertising involves a pretty simple formula. The more people who read your articles, the more money you will make. This can be somewhat of a simplistic view as there certain subjects that will result is better paying clicks than others but as a beginner, I encourage you not to worry about that until you have a little more experience. There are two primary keys to achieving your goal of a high readership:

1. A Large Volume of Unique Quality Content – There really is no shortcut around this. Making a consistent residual income from your writing requires a significant amount of work. Here's an example: Let's say you write a brand new article and it gets 10 page views per day. If you get one ad click from those 10 page views that earn you $0.75, you would need about 70 similar articles published in order to earn at least $1500 per month. Don't get too caught up with this example as you are likely to have a mix of articles with some receiving more than 10 visitors in a day and some receiving less. The purpose of the example is just to give you a general idea of how much work you have to put in to creating enough content to be successful. Keep in mind that you can accumulate this content over time and it doesn't all have to be done in a few days or even a few weeks. The best advice I can give to a new writer trying to make money with Adsense is to keep at it and gradually build up your writing portfolio over time.

2. Search Engine Traffic – You can only make money if people actually see and read your content. You can have thousands of articles and it they are not properly optimized to show up in search results, your earnings are likely to be quite a bit less than what you might have expected. Take the time to plan out your articles before you start writing and make sure your title accurately describes what readers will find inside your article. Think about keywords that someone might enter into a search engine if they were trying to find information about your topic and be sure to use those words in your article. Finally, build up the credibility of your articles by linking to them from websites that are known to be trustworthy and established. While this can create what seems like a lot of extra work, you will quickly see your efforts pay as your articles begin to rank better in search results and get more exposure to searchers. If you aren't familiar with SEO, you might want to consider picking up a book about it to teach yourself the basics. It really isn't very complicated and optimizing your articles properly will help you make much more money on Adsense than you otherwise would.

I've been an Adsense publisher for several years now and I'm happy to report that I have managed to make a significant amount of money. While they do not permit publishers to disclose exact earnings figures, I can tell you that it is more than enough to motivate me to continue to write. If you are just getting started, there are a few things you can do from the very beginning to get off to a good start. First, find a revenue sharing website that offers you a large percentage share of your earnings. The last thing you want to do is create a wildly successful article only to have to give up the majority of your earnings to the site you published your article with. As a general rule, I don't bother working with websites unless they offer at least a 50% share of Adsense earnings. In my opinion, the best place to get started is with Info Barrel. They offer one of the largest revenue share percentages of any similar sites and it is free to sign up as a new writer. They also provide monthly contents that will allow you to further increase your Adsense revenue share percentage and make even more money.

Once you get started, you will find that Adsense can be a great way to make some extra money and provide a residual source of income. Don't get discouraged if you aren't breaking the bank right away, it takes some time to get established and build up your content base. Even though it may seem frustrating at first, stick with it and you will be rewarded with a nice income over time. While the process of creating new content may seem tedious, remember that once published, your articles have the ability to earn money at any time. That should serve as motivation to keep building and working toward your goals. If you've been thinking about doing some writing online, there's no better time to start than right now!

One click in 10 views is nearly impossible for most people. The CTR is too high.
