This doesn't have the most important info: how much money do you get from them? How many hits does your site have to get for it to be worthwhile? — Chameleon 01:16, 26 Jun 2005 (UTC)
It is against the Google's TOS to tell that.
Google will not allow clients to give specifics, but in general, it depends on the type of site, traffic generated, etc. I have a game site that has been up for more than a decade, which I maintain for fun. It receives several hundred hits per day. It's adsense revenue is less than $5.00 per month. I have am article site, designed specifically to take advantage of adsense revenue. It's been up less than a year, and receives comparable hits to the game site, but earns about $5/day. The difference is one is designed to take advantage of adsense, the other is designed to just be fun to visit. They attract different keywords. A click on the gamesite generates 1-3 cents. A click on the article site generates 1 cent up to five or six dollars. There are many, many, articles on adsense on the web.
- 'worthwhile'-ness is a point of view, and thus a moot issue for wikipedia. Also, it's no longer against AdSense TOS to talk about earnings. Eclipsed 20:30, 30 August 2005 (UTC)
I'm not an expierienced Wikipediaer (Or something) so I won't try and add it myself, but I'll tell you all so someone else can add it, one click can get about 2c-15$ USD, depending on how much is payed to have the ad up. (it's a percentage, but the percent is unknown) --PokeOnic 18:07, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
And what about payment for 1000 impression? 18.104.22.168 21:26, 9 July 2006 (UTC)
- eCPMs range from pennies to several dollars depending on the site. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 09:32, 22 January 2007 (UTC).

I wonder could we get a good estimate of the percentage of the advertising revenue that is passed on to the host site by looking at the quarterly Google filings with the New York stock exchange. They are a public company and so are forced to reveal much about their revenue sources and expenditure. If we know the total revenue taken in by Google selling adsense advertisements and the total amount paid out to the host sites, then we know the average percentage paid.
It seems ironic that Google, who has helped enormously with the flow of information round the globe is so terribly secretive about its percentage take. The question is why do they go to such lengths to hide the information? Probably because there isn't enough competition in the market so they are not forced to reveal tat they take a very big slice of the cake. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pnelnik (talk • contribs) 20:10, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
Why all the speculation about secrecy? Google not only publicly state the revenue share, but confirm it in every publisher's account dashboard. Standard AdSense publishers receive 68% of AdSense for Content revenue and 51% of AdSense for Search. Matbennett (talk) 12:19, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
What about something about how creepy it is to open an email in gmail and see ads on the right side of the screen for something mentioned in the email?
