Google Adsense Is NOT For Everybody

The most common misconception of a new blogger wanting to earn from Adsense is that simply putting the Adsense code on his blog and blogging will give them the money. No. It is not as simple as that.

To earn from Google Adsense, you need lots of visitors. Not just hundreds, but thousands of visitors. If you are just an average blogger with just more than a hundred visitors per day, it is not for you.

Imagine, you need at least 667 pageviews a day just to earn a dollar a day (if your CTR is 3% and your average CPC is 5 cents). If you want a monthly payment from Google Adsense, you need to earn at least $100 every month. And to achieve that, you must at least earn $3.33 per day, which can only be achieved if you have 2200+ pageviews per day.

Now, tell me. Can you achieve that pageviews by simply blogging? Well, if your mother is not Sharon Cuneta (Hi KC! 🙂 ) and you are just an ordinary blogger like me, simply blogging about your daily life will not drive your blog that much traffic. Do you have that much number of friends that will come everyday to your blog just to read your nonsense talks? I don’t think so.

I’m writing this not to discourage you. I’m writing this to tell you the realities behind Google Adsense. It is not an easy money. It is not as easy as what you think it is. And if you are not determined to work your a$$ out to get that much traffic, then Google Adsense is not for you.

Now, you might say, I’m not one of them. I’m determined to get that much traffic! But how? Here’s another free e-book for you. Promise yourself to read it and apply it on your blog. Yup, don’t just read it. Take actions! Apply it! And see your traffic increase everyday.

Update: Manuel Viloria thinks otherwise. Check his blog post, he got some very interesting arguments.

Update: Darren Rowse confirmed that it is not that easy to earn from blogging. Check out his Reality Check post here.
