    That's not the whole story. Show us your referer stats, both search engines and referer sites. Maybe, we can analyze from there. :D

    You're doing something wrong. Adsense does make money, but since you gave such little information you're alone in the dark on this one.

    how much u earn depends on many variables, like geolocalization, niche u present, but also such trivial thingz like the size of ads and themes count

    the ads are not attractive to visitors, try testing different backgrounds and fonts etc, you should make money, make the ads seem part of the site and you`ll have better success

    If you're getting thousands of visitors by inviting your friends, then I'm assuming you mean friends on FB or some other social networking site. It's possible that the method your using to get friends to visit the site, may be good enough to accomplish that goal but still not providing visitors targeted to the niche the ads are based on.

    What method are you using to get the friends to visit your adsense site? Are you doing anything to make sure they're targeted to that niche?

    These are probably not even real visitors. Never rely on awstats, get google analytics and lets see how many actual visitors your site really gets. It might be like 1 a day.

    Is this an autoblog? Probably is.

    I don't think you got quality visitors, what i mean to say is real and coming from countries like usa, can, uk..... and targeted for your niche...

    I have a page which get 5k visitor... 3.5k from india and 1k from usa and 500 from rest of the world... 1k usa visitors make me more money several times more then indian visitors so you see quality of visitors matters more.

    Apart from that if you are getting only visits from your friend because of FB and other sites, there are even less chance of getting clicks on your ads. Organic and targeted traffic will convert better...

    Untargeted and low quality of traffic will bring you very few or nothing....

    I have sites that are targeted towards friends and they earn me very little.
    Yet the ones that are not in the "friends loop" tend to earn me far more money.
    I think it comes down to mates knowing what and where they want to be and therefor not hitting adds etc enough.
    I think if i asked some of my mates they would agree in the years they have been active they are yet to click an add. <-pricks lmao.
    However i dont place ads the same way on said sites as i do the ones of which are to make me money (thats the theory anyway).

    Seriously, if this is an autoblog those visitors are not real.

    On my autoblog awstats shows 4k visitors a month, and analytics shows like 30... analytics is the real one.

    True analytics show better and correct result... Also there may be one more reason for your earning is your site is not optimized for ads... You may need better placement, may be you site is not displaying targeted ads... All usual guess but best one i believe so far is that you don't have actually that many visitors...

    BTW, what is your Alexa Rank ?You invite friends or buy traffic?It seems to be generated traffic, from some social network, because if REAL friends visit your site, you could earn a lot more than 0,01$.

    Spyworld,

    First of all your traffic is not that high - You are getting just about 80 unique visitors per day.

    Secondly, you have to check your adsense report - find out the number of impressions and your CTR. If you use a good template, your CTR can be as high as 10 to 15 %.

    Thirdly, what matters is the content of your website and the keyword it targets - Google ads which are shown on your pages are context sensitive. You can find out the average price of various keywords your site is targeting using the Google traffic estimator tool. If the average price of these keywords is low, you are not going to make much money.
