    Hi all,

    I run a blog without monetizing (it's out of a passion for now, just for the glory). However, I'm starting getting 2k pageviews a day (1k uniques), so I was thinking to implement adsense.

    My keywords CPC according to Google Keyword tool range from $0.15 to $0.25 (this are the suggested bids).

    Say I'm going to reach 50k unique and 100k pageviews a month soon. Do you guys think is it going to be worth to implement adsense or I'm not going to make any money with that shitty CPC?

    Implementing AdSense shouldn't hurt your traffic. If you want to wait a bit, that won't hurt either. You can just implement it in a month or two when you traffic is peaking, if your not hell bent on monetizing, maybe just put an ad in one spot, get people used to it slowly.

    Yep, I'm going to place them in a way that they will be "harmonic" with the rest of the layout, so they will be pleasant to see.

    But my point is: do you think I'll make a few bucks with that sort of traffic and CPC? If it's a matter of making just $100/month, I won't bother changing the layout then...

    Even if you dont earn that much but it still worth it. So, you have regular visitors on your blog?? then they may know how it was and how it is.. place one on the top and another one on the bottom of the page in which you get maximum visits and see how it progress. I suggest you could join as affiliate if possible. according to me, it will pay better in most of the case. :happysad:

    Well, because I would need to re-design it (and so hire a designer) and it's costing a bit of din-dins.

    But that's OK, I'm going to give it a shot guys. After all if you're not willing to risk a little bit, you're not going to achieve anything.

    Yes try it. You don't know how good things can turn out. And even if it didn't it is still experience gained.

    Yep, will do guys.

    I'm redesigning the blog now, AD optimized (3 Adsense boxes + 2 affiliate banners on CJ).

    It should be ready for launch tomorrow. Will keep updating this.

    Something is always better than nothing. You should go for it. :) If you are getting 1000 visitors a day and say you've a CTR of 2-3%. that would make $5-7/day. Who doesn't like free $7 a day :p

    It's always worth a shot, if decent traffic, and if it does not work out kill the site

    And plus there are always ways to increase ctr to at least %5 which is $12 minimum.
