How much income from Adsense?

Do you want to make money from Adsense? I suppose any of us that have a website or a blog have thought about using Adsense to make some extra cash. But just how much can you make from Adsense? Well its like any type of business - how much can you make from selling retail goods? The guy at the corner shop makes a living to get by on - but the guys who own Wal-Mart earn a bundle.

Adsense can be a bit like that. Some people earn an odd dollar here and there but for some there is a real treasure chest of money to be made from Adsense. Now for a blog like this the earnings from Adsense wont add up to much of an hourly rate. So I am not going to earn even a tiny percentage of what some website owners routinely earn from Adsense.

That doesnt mean its not worthwhile to get some return from your efforts but you need to understand that it takes work, good content and a measure of luck to get into the bigger bucks. Oh and spotting a good market opportunity of course.

Now the dating game is of course as old as human kind. Marcus Frind of PlentyofFish, knew this. It's the “world’s largest singles site”.

Now PlentyofFish has an Alexa ranking of 710 and homepage Page Ranking of 6.

The site is said to have 500 million page-views a month producing earnings of around $10,000 a day.

Jeremy Shoemaker of ShoeMoney earns money from ringtones and is a top earner from Google AdSense reportedly making nearly $140,000 a month.

Former Weblogs, Inc. owner Jason Calacanis sold Weblogs to AOL for $25 million and used to reportedly earn around $4000 a day from AdSense in his network of blogs. He also wrote a book: The AdSense Code: What Google Never Told You About Making Money with AdSense)
which no doubt also earned him a tidy sum.

So it can be done. These guys of course worked hard at what they did. They developed good content and platforms and Adsense was not their only income stream. Indeed for some Adsense was at first only a side stream of income but as the scale of their operations increased so did the scale of their Adsense income.

Can the likes of you and I get into this league? Well I've made a start and I am happy to let you know about some of things that I have picked up and am still picking up on the way.

I'm glad that you posted that it does indeed take work (just like with anything else) to make money with adsense.

Today I have been reading so many posts from so many people who are lamenting about how they are not making any adsense money with their blogs and just because THEY aren't making money with their blogs they want to discourage others from even trying!
