    I have 2 of my higher paying keywords now on page one. Although it is farther down in google it has hit spots 3 and 5 on Bing. Still most of my traffic comes from google. Now when I say most traffic I am maxing out so far at 250 vistors a day with my best day being just over $2 in adsesne. So how many visitors does it take to really see profit on a site. I already know 250 isn't really much at all but I am just curious what the experts have tot say.

    I would not spend too much time analyzing on 250 visitors, I feel your time should be spent scaling up the traffic after all the more traffic you get the bigger the $$$ Revenue :)

    start adding more keywords to rank on, if you ranked for 10 long to mid-tail keywords, 100 visitors a day each, it starts to add up. Now create 10 niches like that, each ranking for 10 keywords all bringing in visitors...you can do the math. Or, go all out for a more competitive term that in and of itself can bring in bank. Just brainstorming for ya here..

    have you tried CPA Networks? To make money with adsense you'll need a lot more than 200 visitors as you already know. I always consider adsense my last option when it comes to monetizing a site. I first look at CPA (my favorite these days), direct affiliate programs, clickbank, amazon, cj, and then finally if I can't make money any of those other ways, i'll then do adsense.

    Right now I have only 1 niche site. 5 keywords which are ranking. I have another in the works. The current words gets a decent amount of revenue with my primary having the capability of some insane traffic. I usually do about 20k backlinks a weeks with SB. So traffic is my focus.

    Similar to what I said above, but I have 5 now my next niche site will be up soon and with a lot of research with top rankings I could see several K a month. This one could do on my main keyword which I am constantly trying to get to Page 1 its been moving steadily though.

    Adsense is not my only source of revenue on this page, however I am making more, if you want to call it that, on adsesnse at the moment.

    I would say quantity is meaningless. It is all about quality. 100 quality visitors can make much more than 10k of random uninterested ones. Great content brings great visitors.

    I would have to agree, I feel the same way to some extent. I am not a professional web developer however I know my way around html, css, php and so on. I feel my site may need some improvements but I do not know on what.

    I would not go as far to say that quantity is meaningless but I definitely agree with you that quality visitors are extremely important. You must have both. A large quantity of quality visitors is what you should be working towards. Almost anything you do in IM must be somewhat targeted.

    I would say the absolute minimum for anyone to start making real money is 1,000 visits a day. That is when decent consistent money should kick in a little bit. And yes, great content brings great visitors as well as brings them back to your site time and time again!

    As long as you want to increase your daily income, no traffic is enough. If you can create a tactic to generate 2 billion unique visitors per day, go ahead and do so.

    first try to rank your keywords on Google and then add more keywords and 10K visitors is good for your $$$, although we always need more $$$ :p
