How to Estimate Adsense Revenue using Alexa Ranking
Are you curious to know about the earnings of any website or blog? As putting inside some one’s pocket or bank account is very difficult how you would get to know about the revenue of a blogger or webmaster. Now a day most of the bloggers have started showing their AdSense earning or the analytics of their blog. What if there is no information about the earning on the blog. The only place where you can find the statistics of a blog is Alexa.com. Alexa only provides the world ranking of the web site including some other analytic data like page views, number of views yesterday, last 7 days etc. So let’s try to find out how we can estimate the revenue of a blog or website. This trick is just based on some assumption and there is no direct relation between Alexa ranking and Adsense revenue.
Things to know before we start:
Website URL: The targeted website URL.[ Here we will try to find the estimated earnings of the blog labnol.org (A very famous blog, Digital Inspiration).]
Assume average eCPM for websites = $2
Total Number of Internet Users All over the World (Let’s say it
TNIU): 2 Billion+ i.e. 2,095,006,005 approximately.(2011 Data)
Alexa Ranking: Find the Alexa ranking of the targeted website by visiting www.alexa.com and searching for the site. Alexa ranking of labnol.org is 1434. When you are on the Alexa rank page you can see a button labeled Get Detail click on that, as shown below:
Get Web Site Reach (Let’s say it R): After Clicking on the button you will reach a page which looks like below: (Click on the reach tab)
Note down the last 1 month Reach. So for us here Reach is: 0.12340% (Reach is always is percentage. Reach is the percentage of total number of internet users all over the world visiting your site)
Page views/User (Let’s say it PVPU): Click on the Pageviews/user tab and get the last 1 month page views per user data. In our case it is 1.64
Now let’s see what the formula is:
Estimated Earning = eCPMavg * Page Impressions
Page Impressions = PVPU * R/100 * TNIU
Estimated Earning = eCPMavg * PVPU * R/100 * TNIU/100
Hence in our case Estimated Earning for labnol.org is
Estimated Earning = 2 * 1.64 * 0.02134/100 * 2,095,006,005/1000
=$1 466.40 UDS per Day
So monthly earning of labnol.org comes to approximately $43,992 USD.
This is just an estimation based on some assumption. Hence the total revenue may be more or less than the estimated earnings. So if you would like to estimate the monthly adsense revenue of any website follow the above rules and find it. Good luck!!
