We have read so much bullshits from internet marketeers who bluffed that they make tens of thousands USD from Google Adsense. It is always the ‘buy our program, instal and within 3 minutes, you will be making money from Google Adsense’.
Those are total lies. But if you have a lot of money to spare and experiment, by all means, indulge in it. However, do not get conned into parting with your money if you can ill afford it because they NEVER work. Ahahaha, talking from experience, so value it.
So, what I learnt from making money with Google Adsense is :
1) You need a site that attracts organic traffic, i.e. traffic from random surfers looking for something.
2) You need unique sites but even personal blog will do if you happen to hit on something that people search for. Eg. one day you may be talking about some bald politicians and in the post, you mentioned about wigs. So, let’s pretend that post was picked up by Google and appeared on the search result for wigs, you may have hit the golden goose and make lots of money from there.
3) You need lots of traffic to collect 3 cents to add up to 30 cents to add up to USD3 to ….etc etc.
Now, back to my question – What is your highest income from a single click on Google Adsense. You have heard internet marketeers boasting getting USD100 per click. You definitely have seen them posting screenshots and swearing over their mother’s grave that it is the truth that they do get shit loads of USD10 clicks. But my dear friends, in the real world where I lived in, the highest click I get so far is only a miserably USD3.69 per click. That is considered good for me because it is RM10+ in my currency. However, that happens as often as once in a blue moon.
So, what’s yours?

About USD 2+, and yeah, happened only once.

Mine is also $3+ per click. I didn’t even know it is so high paying :P But I still need to build that site (which only has 8 posts) to keep it going ;)

Yea, I think all #1, #2 and #3 you mentioned were really true. Also those 100 per click, I think they are so not true.
Anyway I’m curious how you guys can track $/click. I mean it’s only possible when you keep google.com/adsense open and keeps on refreshing every minute or 10 sec?
If I’m not wrong, even the Firefox plugin threshold is 15 mins.

hongkiat – I know ‘cos I am the pathetic one who checks every second. No lah, joking. I knew ‘cos it was a new Google day and there is only one single click so I saw it.
pablo – Wuah, you hit the goldmine already? Good niche then. But from my experience, it is rather random, without any specific niche so it is hard to guess what drives high income click.
Jason – How nice if every click is like that and not the 0.01 cent ya?

My highest click was $3.54 I believe which in my opinion is a pretty good click. The majority of my clicks are over $1 though so that’s good news..
Tom - StandOutBlogger.com(October 8, 2008 - 1:17 pm)
I would say about $2 probably :(
Chris(October 8, 2008 - 3:41 pm)
My highest was $2.11 if I remember rightly, not too bad, but usually they are very low, under $0.20 :(

On asbestos.bz, I have received several clicks of $5 +
Will increase traffic and aim to sell on for a few thousand $ in a few years.
sa(October 8, 2008 - 11:41 pm)
mine is $1+ nia….
zalds(October 10, 2008 - 6:10 am)
I encountered 7+$ per click 8 months back when i’m still a new blogger.
Now i really don’t now how much the click cost but average is 0.05 :)its now hard to monitor..
Anyways, you can easily check it google traffic estimator
the link will give allow you to estimate the click price from provided by google ( they said that take the 50% of the price there to get the actual price )
Try the “asbestos” keyword as observe by Andie and you will see that 5+ per click is possible for that keyword.

I think it’s against Google’s TOS to say how much you get for exact clicks, but I will say it’s not very much.
Marco(July 4, 2009 - 11:31 am)
My average clicks are around USD 0.50. The highest one was USD2.63.
Investo Blogger(July 15, 2009 - 1:41 pm)
