    How much is it feasible to achieve via.adsense for a keyword with a CPC of ~$1 and exact searches of ~1200 per month.
    I have 2 sites with the above searche volums and CPC and they both rank first page between postions 2-5, haven't added adsense yet, but just trying to get an estimate from people who earn from similar sites.

    The reason I am asking is, I would like to know the maximum earnings potential of these sites. That way I can figure out after adding adsense whether I need to focus on these sites or move to a new niche.

    It depends on factors like ad placement but I would just like a get a brief idea.

    Thanks

    It depends on so many different factors that no estimate you get here will likely be accurate in any sense. Test it and find out for yourself this is how we learn. :D

    #1 get around 50% of the traffic, count it yourself?

    You're stupid if you rank #2 and you still haven't monetized them. Every day is a lost profit.

    There is really no way to be able to tell. Some days I can get 100 visitors and earn $25 through AdSense, and then the next day I can have 50 visitors and make $30 with AdSense. You will never be able to predict whether a visitor will click an ad.

    All depends on where you rank the site.

    Home Page:
    bear in mind that the number one site on SERP gets twice as much visitors than the site on number two. And 1200 exact searches per month is not a very impressive figure. This is however, not to discourage you. Just raw facts
