To make $100,000 a year from Google AdSense we can calculate it down to a simple formula.


$100,000 divided by 365 = $274 a day. So how do we earn $274 every day for an entire year?


You would have to create either 274 pages that earn a dollar a day, 548 pages that earn fifty cents a day or 1,096 pages that earn 25 cents a day (a bit far fetched but is highly achievable).

The average Page CTR (click through rate) is about 1% (or something easily achievable). Depending upon your niche, web site design, as well as other factors, results may vary.

Doing the Math To Make $100,000

For example, suppose that you have a CTR of 1% and the average CPC (cost per click) is 25 cents.

We already know that to make $100,000 a year you have to earn a minimum $274 a day. If your average CPC is 25 cents then you need 100,000/0.25 = 400,000 clicks a year (calculating down to approximately 1,000 clicks a day) to earn $100,000 a year from Google AdSense alone. Assuming that your Page CTR is 1% you would need close to 100,000 page views a day.

This is where the estimated percentage of visits to your website that consist of a single page view, otherwise known as a bounce rate, comes into play. A bounce rate of 100% means that you need 100,000 unique visitors a day itself to generate 100,000 page views a day.

To sum up, you would need about 100,000 visitors a day to make $100,000 a year from the use of Google AdSense alone (with a CTR of 1% and CPC of $0.25).
