172 AdSense sites = $ 5000 per month
In this post there will be no practical advice, only the numbers, which, of course, are far from reality. In fact, there are always more problems than on paper. And, as a rule, the most serious problems for those who do not begin to do anything.
These figures are optimistic, they raise the spirits and draw colorful pictures in the imagination of PPC novice. For the experienced old man, the most useful thing to learn is the principle of scalability. It is easier to create hundreds of mutant Lilliputians in your secret lab and get them to bring you a dollar a day, rather than trying to construct one giant monster.
So, how many midgets sites are needed to get $ 5,000 per month?
We calculate our costs: domains and hosting. One domain is $ 5.99 per year. This is 50 cents per month. Hosting can be found for $ 4.95 per month and up to 50 sites can be posted there. That is about 10 cents per site. The total is $ 0.60. Round up to $ 1.
One dollar a month from the site can be quite easily obtained with AdSense. It is even more relevant to talk about $ 1 per day, after two or three months of work on the site. That is, $ 30 per month - income from the site, minus $ 1 of expenses, we get $ 29 of net profit.
To earn $ 5000 per month you need ( $ 5000 divided by $ 29 ) only 172 sites.
Too many sites, but if you can increase the profitability of each site, the number will begin to decline rapidly. With an average profit of $ 2 / day, you need 85 sites already . $ 5 / day - 33 sites.
That's all math.
