Adsense Earnings for November – Poll Results

Posted By Darren Rowse 19th of December 2005 Adsense 0 Comments readers could have earned close to $1,000,000 in November! Read on to find out how.

The latest poll of the week is over and the results are in. 1205 readers responded to the question of ‘How much did you earn from AdSense in November?’

225 readers (19%) answered that they didn’t use AdSense meaning the vast majority of those reading this blog do. While I didn’t specify that only bloggers should answer the question we can assume that the majority of those who answered are bloggers due to the nature of this site (well over 90% of those leaving comments on this blog are bloggers).

The spread of results were as follows.
Picture 2-7

Around half of those readers who do use AdSense earn under $30 per week (46%) with most of those earning less than $10 per day. This is up from last time I did this type of poll. Last time 40% earned under $30 per month. As I said last time I commented on this poll, this is a very important statistic to keep in mind as often the stories of bloggers earning big dollars can get all the attention.

Yes there is big money being made by bloggers – but it’s by a small percentage of people.

5% of ProBlogger readers using AdSense (a total of 45 readers) earned over $10,000 last month from Adsense. If November can be viewed as a ‘normal’ month this means around 5% of you are on track for a $120,000 year in 2006. Again this is up on last time I did the poll when only 1% of respondents were earning over the $10,000 per month mark.

17% are earning over $1000 per month and 25% over $500 per month.

For a bit of Fun I decided to estimate how much ProBlogger readers collectively earned from AdSense in November.

My estimation is that it is a minimum of $968,575. I guess that almost makes us a million dollar blog.

I came up with this figure by multiplying the middle dollar value of each dollar range by the number of respondents. ie 125 people said they earned between $10 – $29 so I multiplied 125 x $15 for that section. For the top section of over $10,000 I played it safe and just multiplied the $10,000 x 45 although I know for a fact that some of those who responded in that section earned considerably more than $10,000 which means I’m pretty sure we earned $1,000,000 between us all from AdSense.

This would mean that on average respondents earn $988.34 per month from Adsense.

Of course – these statistics are by no means intended to be scientific but rather are about getting a picture of what’s going on for bloggers at the moment and to have a bit of fun along the way.

Thanks to all who participated.

The next poll will be similar but will focus upon Chitika eMiniMalls earnings. That poll will be up shortly.
