Poll Results: AdSense Revenues Report
Last week, I started a poll asking people to share their monthly AdSense earnings. Here is a more comprehensive report on that survey.
The poll was conducted for one week using a plugin that tracks IP and cookies of each participant. This is to minimize (if not totally avoid) multiple votes from visitors. There were a total of 90 respondents who voted and here’s the breakdown:
Range of Monthly AdSense Income
Less than $10: 17 (19%)
Less than $50: 29 (32%)
Between $50 – $100: 10 (11%)
Between $100 – $200: 7 (8%)
Between $200 – $500: 9 (10%)
Between $500 – $1,000: 2 (2%)
$1,000 and above: 16 (18%)
To give you a better overview of the breakdown, here’s a pie chart to illustrate that.
About half of the respondents (51%) earns $50 or below per month while a fifth (18%) gets a fairly good income of $100 to $500. What I failed to determine in this poll was the number of blogs maintained by the respondents (we will do that on another time). However, these figures alone do show a good picture of bloggers’ income earning potential from Google AdSense.
If we put those figures and chart them out into a bar graph, you’ll see a somewhat parabolic trend with concentrations on both ends rather than the middle. What’s most surprising is the number of respondents who claim earns more than $1,000 a month — 16 or 18% — a huge percentage in my opinion. On the top of my head, I can name around 10 of them at the maximum but six more is surely a good surprise.
Overall, I think we got a good number of responses in the last poll and I hope to get the same in the next ones.
P.S.: Our next poll for this week is on TLA revenues. Feel free to submit your votes on the main page of the blog and invite other bloggers to join as well.
