How Much Can You Make With Google Adsense.
The kind of money you can make with Google Adsense is pretty low.
Here are a few answers that I’ve found on the Internet, that would help you.
Q#: How much does Google Adsense pay per 1000 views?
1000 page views mean you are getting on an average 5 clicks per day. Therefore, 5 clicks per day = 150 clicks per month. So if the Cost-Per-Click is $0.20, then for 150 clicks it becomes $30 per month. (Source: Link)
So basically you’ll need a lot of traffic coming to your website or blog to make a decent income from Google Adsense.
So if you had about 30,000 page views you would make about $100-$200 per month just from Adsense.
Remember its about clicks on the ads that result in income generated for you.
Google takes the management fees and you’ll get the rest.
