    Okay so I ran a website just to test profits and stuff

    long story short,

    when i promoted my page the first day i got 3900 unique followers i checked adsense and recieved like 6-7 bucks

    i then promoted a lil more the next day and stuff and was gettin like 1000 here and there unique visitrs making like 2-3 dollars a day with adsense
    my source is social media,

    But i read around the internet that people are getting 10,000 unique visiors and getting 100 a day off adsense

    if this is true then with my traffic source i could get this many UVs ,

    however i dont think my adsense is giving me the most out of UVS if some people are getting 10k UVS= 100 a day and i got 4k= 7 bucks?


    my site is mostly yt videos with small descriptions no articles,
    niche is conspiracy

    how can i optimize my adsense
    and generally speaking how much UVS a day = 100 a day?

    4k uniques and about 20 clicks? thats real low. Maybe your Site isn't optimized or people doesn't see the ad that much. If you want, I can take a look at your site.

    It depends on the niche first of all. Aside from that maybe you need to optimise your site in terms of layout and where you place your ads - this can make a massive difference to ctr.

    I would say that the CPC of your keywords is very low. You get paid a percentage of the click value so that pretty much sums things up. You're average cost per click is only $0.12 :(

    And your CTR could use some work.

    dont worry the cpc and ctr is normal.. you are sending facebook traffic which isnt really targeted based on a high earning niche.. your RPM is about 2-3 rpm.. which is very normal.. most of the people probably dont understand facebook traffic.. now i will suggest getting shezboy ad injector plugin which will monetize the mobile traffic and raise the rpm.. also try getting native ads.. content.ad to start... then also concentrate on sending your users to paginated post.. lets say your post has 5 pages.. right then and there it pushed the page views up.. you need to concentrate on more traffic, thats small amount to make nice money.. people who always talk about the views is low.. isnt taking in to fact that you're sending traffic to content.. no one is going there to spend money, theyre going to see content.. so it can never be compared to say getting 10k views targeted to a specific offer.. or you selling something.. cause the person knows before clicking its a possible sales offer.. that rpm is good... focus on adding more than one monetization method to the page to raise the total rpm of your page..

    1/Facebook traffic is not quality traffic
    2/If you're un a niche with a low CPC there's just not much you can do. (dollar stores ads vs pharmaceutical ads). And conspirationist public is not the type of people spending there money without thinking twice about it.

    Social traffic is not a buyers traffic (they are just lurking on Instagram or Facebook, they are not in a "search and find" mentality.) So CPC will obviously be lower than ecommerce site, pharmaceutical site or other more specialized high revenue niche.
    I think you're CPM is pretty good for social traffic, I would just keep sending traffic and bank on it. Find a way to automate it

    So facebook traffic sucks? I was hoping I can make 10 bucks a day with facebook traffic to my site, automated ofcourse... Kinda losing hope with this method now if social media traffic sucks.

    It doesn't suck. it's just that you have to find the good content and have the good announcers.

    I've seen people stuff keywords into articles to make the displayed ads more "premium", Eg lawyers, pharmacies, etc...I don't know if this is sustainable, I would guess not.

    I am just repeating stuff I know, but

    1.) the CPC is awful. 42$ for 333 clicks is really bad.

    2.) 333 clicks for 30,000 page views is around 1%. The average is 1-5% CTR for AdSense (appx. and niche dependent) so that is also on the low side.

    3.) It honestly sounds like an issue with your page and the stat 'active view viewable' might be low. Check that in your analytics. (Nvm I see it, still on the low side.)

    4.) Who knows, maybe people in the conspiracy niche are paranoid and have more adblock/javascript blockers? You never know, just a thought.

    5.) Again, good luck with that CPC, that is your #1 issue. It is just really low.
