If you have just started your blog, then am pretty sure you want to earn money with Google Adsense.

That’s why you are here, right?

Actually, having Google Adsense can be a VERY lucrative revenue model if you do it properly.

Though many people won’t advise you to use ads on your website, I will highly recommend you do it.

Why is that so?

Well, because Google Adsense can help you earn a decent income even if your blog is still new.


The TRUTH is:

There are far way too many bloggers who are earning thousands of dollars with ads. Some even earn up between $50,000 up to $100,000 per month with ads ONLY.

That’s pretty impressive? Isn’t it?

Can you imagine earning that kind of income?

Though it may seem really impossible to earn that kind of income, I am pretty sure that if you can generate enough traffic, you will be able to earn at least $1,000 per month within 1 year.

But for that, you will need to apply for ad networks like Meadiavine or Ezoic.

But there is a catch.

Mediavine requires you to have at least 50,000 page monthly sessions to be eligible. 

That’s why I prefer Ezoic, as you will need only 10,000 monthly page sessions to be eligible.


If you use an ad network like Ezoic, you can easily earn 2-5 times more than Google Adsense.

That being said, I personally think that every new blogger should aim to earn at least $5-$10 per day with their new websites.

This is will around $150-$300 per month. Something that almost everyone can earn within a few months.


How to make 5 dollars per day with Google Adsense

Now if you already have google Adsense up and running, then continue to read further.

One thing is really important here:

How you will earn money with Google Adsense

You will need to understand that there are 2 ways to earn money with Adsense. CPC and CPM.

If you don’t know what they mean, let’s elaborate on that a little.

CPC stands for Cost Per Click. It means that when someone clicks on your ad, you earn money. It usually varies between $0.02 up to $7 for each click you can generate. Sometimes depending on the bidding, it can even reach up to $50 per click.

CPM stands for Cost Per Impression. It means you can earn money when the ads are just shown to your audience. They don’t need to click on the ads for you to make an income. Usually, you can earn anywhere between $1 up to $7 for every 1000 impressions you can generate on your blog.

Now, for you to be able to earn at least $5 per day, you must at least generate 1 click OR have 1000 impressions.

This is the most simple way to look at it.

CPC: 1 click can generate $5

CPM: 1000 impressions can generate $5

Now, when your website is still new and depending on your NICHE, the amount you can earn will vary.

In a highly competitive niche, you will earn much more than a low competition niche.

If your niche is not that competitive, it doesn’t mean you cannot reach your daily target.

Here one thing is important: Your page’s RPM.

The higher your page’s RPM the more you will earn per click and impressions.

This is why you SHOULD always try to increase your page’s RPM.

Now you must be wondering how your Page’s RPM can have an impact on your earnings.

Let me give you a simple example.

Let’s say initially your page RPM is $1. It means that you will earn $1 for every 1000 impressions you can generate.

Suppose you can bring enough traffic to have 1000 impressions daily, your income will be a mere $1 per day.

Now when you increase your page’s RPM, for instance from 1 to 10, you will earn $10 for every 1000 impressions.

Pretty impressive, huhhhh.

If you don’t know how to increase your RPM, it’s not a big deal. Head over to this step by step guide to learn how you can increase your RPM up to $10.

Final thoughts: How to make 5 dollars a day with Google AdSense

As you can see, it is not difficult to earn $5 per day with Google Adsense. It’s really simple to start to earn money with Google Adsense, once you are approved.

But, besides increasing your page’s RPM, you should focus on your traffic.

The more traffic, the more you will earn.

In online business, QUALIFIED traffic is everything.

Now you must be wondering how you can get qualified traffic.

The trick here is to use Social to leverage your blog traffic exponentially.

I know, it may seem very difficult to do that especially when you don’t have enough money.

That way you SHOULD use Pinterest. I cannot tell you how much I love Pinterest.

Actually in the beginning I was very hesitant to invest time in the platform.

But once it started to bring traffic to my blog, I must admit that Pinterest is indeed the best social media platform for all new bloggers.

And the awesome thing about Pinterest is that you don’t really need to learn a lot of things.

It’s much easier than you think. But, it will take you some time to generate a lot of traffic(3-6 months).

And to help you with that, I have some free resources that will show you exactly how to generate traffic for your new website.



Do read these articles, as they can be the key to the success of your blog.

Trust me.

If you follow all the things I have discussed in these articles, you WILL be able to generate enough traffic to earn a decent income with your blog.
