    I used to make about $100 a day on adsense with just a simple blog but that was about 7 years ago and the earnings kept getting lower and lower. Is anyone still making decent money with adsense this days?

    Cheers!

    Dont think you can do anything decent. I mean I am sure that here is someone out there who is, but if the majority aren't is it really worth it? Shouldnt affiliate marketing be a better idea?

    Yup moved to clickbank after adsense. And making about $10k a month with CB. But want to make a course on how to make money with adsense, as it was one of the easiest ways to make money before. But that was before Facebook and youtube.

    I have started using Adsense again after a break of about 10 years. From the little bits I have picked up on various forums it seems that pretty much all advertising networks are paying much lower now. While I can not give a definitive reason why, I would say that the amount of "adblocking" software available now might be a major factor in low-paying ads?

    Earnings went down when they started using your browser history instead of contextual targeting. Two weeks ago I browsed something about electric guitars now every site I visit, that has AdSense ads, shows ads about guitars. It's useless. I already found what I was looking for. Contextual targeting was powerful, it makes little sense why they abandoned that idea.

    they go block those ads give low CPC

    and inject high CPC ad


    do you guys do that?

    do u block low CPC ad?
    I do another research, By right there is not need to block. As long you can bring in traffic better ones from Tier 1 countries naturally your CPC will be good?

    I think COVID-19 Has also impact online Business. Today not the display advertising even many affiliate programs have a drop down the commission rates. I am also doing affiliate marketing and using AdSense too.

    People are still making money wiht Adsense. Probably they are not paying as much as they did 5 years ago, or 10 years ago, but they still pay.

    There are a lot of other options to monetize your website: affiliate marketing, direct product or subscription selling, direct ad sales. If you find the right stuff to sell, you can make much more money in many other ways.

    However, Google Adsense remains a good option for cases when other ways are not working, or if you dont want to stress a lot to find a good product to sell. With Adsense, you just post the code and forget about it.

    Is it really that bad? Should I consider not trying to get it on my blogs?

    It doesn't hurt to try. Just lower your expectations. Do you know where the majority of your traffic (what country) is coming from?

    Mostly USA, Serbia and China. I knew it depended on traffic, but to think that adsense fell off so much.

    You need a lot of traffic to make any reasonable amount of money with Adsense.

    let say one day target is 50 bucks how much traffic?
    likewise for 100 bucks , how much traffic needed?

    Minus the clicks. What I learn Clicks actually the Target , sometimes need to see the ad too , some ad just one click u can earn 1 bucks or few some ad just earn few cent
