The amount of money one can make from AdSense in India depends on many factors. Based on research, the monthly median income of bloggers in India is $300. However, there are bloggers who earn more than this amount based on traffic numbers and specific niche they specialize on.
Based on traffic, here is the amount of money one can make from AdSense in India:
The amount may increase or reduce based on the time of the month, the niche, positioning of the banners and quality of your articles.
The highest earning bloggers are those focusing on these niches:
- Money & Banking
- Web Hosting
- Games & Sports
- Technology & Software
There are some keywords which will pay up to $1,000 per click especially those in the health niche. If you write about cancer, coronavirus, diabetes and other chronic diseases, you are likely to earn the highest amount of money in the industry. Mortgages and loans are other niches which pay well for bloggers. However, the traffic for mortgage content may be less than traffic for other niches like news.
AdSense earnings are in terms of cost per click. Any of the niches above will yield over 0.1 CPC. In good days, you’ll earn over $0.5 per click. In some cases, especially if you target high paying countries like Europe, the CPC will rise to over $1 per click.
The highest paying countries are:
- Saudi Arabia
- South Africa
With a monthly traffic of 100,000, you’ll comfortably earn over $500.
The most unfortunate bloggers are those focusing on these niches:
The four niches attract a lot of traffic but they pay the lowest amount. Their CPC is constantly below 0.02. One will get over 1 million visits per month but only earn less than $1,000.
Realistically, the amount you’ll earn as a blogger in India range between $50 and $1,000 per month. Over 90% of bloggers earn this amount. There are those with viral blogs that make over $1,000 per month.
The most surprising thing is that the richest bloggers in India do not monetize through AdSense. All of them earn via affiliate marketing, direct advertisements and sponsored content. I always encourage anyone attracting over 1 million page views to source for independent adverts. This way you’ll be able to negotiate a price and avoid relying on AdSense.
Finally, if you have a new blog, you have to wait for more than 6 months to start making realistic income. Search engines take more than 3 months to start indexing your content, sometimes they take up to one year. And for your information, for you to be able to withdraw money from AdSense, you need to reach the threshold of $100.A new blog won’t reach this threshold within 3 months of being established.
