    Every once in awhile, I get a company that contacts me trying to buy advertisement. I often tell them to make an offer because I don't know how much to charge per month. If I make about $200/month from Adsense is it a good idea to charge $400/month for all my ad spots?

    Doesn't Google take half?

    They take an undisclosed percentage, but not half, I think.

    So how does Google make money from their advertising services?

    Google makes money when someone clicks on your adsense ads but not it someone clicks on a banner ad that you have with a private party.

    I do not know the percentages that we get from the total ad cost though.

    I suppose that's what the OP meant by "Doesn't Google take half?". He was talking about AdSen$e ads, not the 3rd party ones.

    I think you are right... I misunderstood the OP.

    That's not a good way to sell to a customer imo. YOu need to evaluate how much they make from each member and how much each of your hits will bring to them. Charge like 35% above that and that should be a fair deal.
