Wanna be a SEO Millionaire?

Are you chasing the Million Dollar Dream?

Webmasterworld has an interesting thread started by toldan called:

Adsense Millionaires
Has anyone reached a million yet?

after a start, ezgo jumps in with some numbers:

If you mean make 1M in a year from AdSense.
so average. $83333.33/month
About $2777.77/day
Each click usually is from $0.03 to $2.00. Let’s assume averge $0.6 per click(I think this is still high) You need to have have at least 4630 clicks/day
If CTR is 1.5%. You need at least 308667 views on your site each day.

incrediBILL then ads more logic with numbers by addiing:

…Get motivated, you only need to make about $2,800 per day, which could be as easy as 547 web sites making as little as $5/day each…

Another interesting comment was made by Dollarshort who says:

Adsense now takes the back seat, I’m now making 4X the amount on an affiliate program.

There’re more gems in there, check out the whole thread at WebmasterWorld.

  1. I know for a fact that it has been done (wasn’t me personally) so there’s a chance for anyone to become an Adsense millionaire. It does take quite a bit of resources though. No need to stop at a million per year though. WHy not 3 mil year? Or 5? It’s really not a stretch.

    Lots of pages+targeted traffc= loads of earnings

  3. Sure, but that doesn’t erase the fact that the affiliate industry is estimated at about 5 billion dollars a year. That leaves plenty of room for people to pull in a million plus a year — and this industry isn’t shrinking, its growing.

    I’ll publish as Anon because I don’t want to get into the mine is bigger than yours thing (because it isn’t!).

    I’ve been online for 6-7 years. Before that I was into big business marketing.

    Online I’ve made these sort of numbers; Once made $200,000+ in 1 hour from sale of a $50 product after offline PR mention. That went on for weeks at a slower and slower rate.
    I was making $15,000 a day in sales on another product last year (all from Google Adwords).
    I made $5,000 pd for a few months this year from 1 term being # 1 in the engines.

    I’ve just started doing Adsense more seriously (have had 10 sites making $10 per day for a few months) – in the first 2 weeks we have one site at just under $100 per day.

    Have a couple of affiliates sites that do close on $1,000 per month with almost no (i.e. less than 5 hours in total) work.

    From where I’m standing Adsense and Affiliates are the way to go.

    Like incrediBILL says, imagine if we put up 100 sites pulling in $10 per day each. That seems/is achievable to me. And that’s $365,000 pa.

    That’s good and easy money. And if we’re making that bsort of $, then it’s just a matter of allocating more resources to build another 200 sites – and there’s $1 million.

    I like the range of things we do – eggs in lots of baskets because some will break along the way.

    Hope that’s of some interest.

  5. I think it’s very doable as I replaced a 6 digit income as a director of software engineering with a single web site. Got a few more creeping up the pay scale as we speak which is why i’m a believer 😉

    “and this industry isn’t shrinking, its growing.”

    Pun intended?

    Funny I really don’t see much mention of selling the damn things. Buy a site, say for $5,000 you pick up a gem, if you work hard and know what you’re doing you could be earning say $2,000 per day after 3 months. Continue at that rate for 9 months and you’ve got $540,000 earned roughly (plus whatever you made in the first three months), now sell the site. Even at 10x monthly revenue that’s 600k. You’re at 1.04 million.
