In this post, we are going to discuss how much Google Adsense pays per 1,000 page views in India. We’ve divided the answer into two parts. First part is a quick answer for those who just want to know the answer and are not interested to get involved in the technicalities. The second part is a detailed analysis of the calculations and terminologies related to Google Adsense payment.

Quick Answer: How much Google Adsense Pays Per 1,000 Page views in India?

Per 1,000 page views in India, you can make somewhere between $1 — $3, depending on your niche, number of ads you are placing and your ad placement optimization.

Although this answer sounds simple, however, in actual it is a little complicated. You need to understand a couple of important terms like impressions, cost per click (CTC), click through rate (CTR) etc. to fully understand how to calculate revenue from Google Adsense.

Now, let’s dive deeper and first understand a few important terminologies related to Adsense. Then, we’ll perform some basic calculations to find out how much Google Adsense pays per page view in India.

Google Adsense Terms

Let’s begin with- what is Google Adsense?

AdSense is a program run by Google that allows publishers to place an advertisement on their blog/website/Youtube without much hassle. For placing the ads, first, you have to join the Google Adsense program by applying to it. Here’s a link to join the program.

Further, getting your Google Adsense account approved is not as easy as it used to be in the past. If your blog is relatively new and not getting enough traffic or visitors, you might have to wait months before your Adsense account gets approved.

Anyways, once your account gets approved for the Google network of content sites through Adsense, you can place automatic text, image, video, or interactive media advertisements, that are targeted to your site content and audience. These advertisements are administered, sorted, and maintained by Google.

For displaying ads with AdSense for content, publishers (blog owners) receive 68% of the revenue recognized by Google in connection with the service. This percentage is consistent, regardless of a publisher’s geographic location, and are not in any way averaged between publishers. (Source: Google support).

If you consider the fact that how much Google has simplified the advertisement process, this 68% share of revenue seems fair. After all, you do not have to worry about how to find the advertisers, which ads to place, how to code the advertisements, etc. All these things are taken care by Google. You just have to place a few auto-generated lines of code on your blog and through their artificial intelligence technology, Google Adsense will place the best ads which are most relevant to your content.

Now, that you’ve understood the basics, here are a few important terminologies of google adsense that you need to know:

Impression: Also called a View or an Ad view, is a term that refers to the point in which an ad is viewed once by a visitor, or displayed once on a web page. The number of impressions of a particular advertisement is determined by the number of times the particular page is located and loaded.

For example- let’s say that you have placed two ads on a blog post, one at the starting of the post and other at the bottom. If a visitor opens your blog and reads the entire blog post, he/she will get to view the ads twice (no matter whether he pays attention or click on the advertisement). Here, the impressions are counted as two.

Cost Per Click (CPC): CPC is the revenue that you earn each time a visitor clicks on your ad. CPC is dynamic and determined by the advertisers. Some competitive niches like technology, download websites, insurance, health, finance, marketing etc. advertisers may are willing to pay more per click than others. Here is a list of blog niches with high CPC.

Click Through Rate (CTR): Your ad CTR is calculated by dividing the number of ad clicks by the number of individual ad impressions.

CTR = (Total number of clicks / Total ad impressions) X 100

For example. suppose you are showing 3 AdSense ads on every page of your website. Then, 1 page view is equal to 3 ad impressions. Let’s say you get 10 clicks out to 1,000 ad impression. Then, your CTR would be 1% (10/1000*100).

CPM: CPM stands for “cost per 1000 impressions.” Advertisers running CPM ads set their desired price per 1000 ads served and pay each time their ad appears. As a publisher, you’ll earn revenue each time a CPM ad is served to your page and viewed by a user (doesn’t matters it get clicked or not).

CPM ads compete against cost per click (CPC) ads in Google ad auction, and they’ll display whichever ad is expected to earn more revenue for you.

Revenue per thousand impressions (RPM): The page RPM is calculated by dividing your estimated earnings by the number of page views you received, then multiplying by 1000.

Page RPM = (Estimated earnings / Number of page views) * 1000

For example, if you earned an estimated $0.15 from 75 page views, then your page RPM would equal ($0.15 / 75) * 1000, or $2.00.

What Does It Take To Make $10 A Day With AdSense in India?

When your CTR is 1% and your average CPC is $0.25, it’s quite achievable to make $10 dollars a day in India, if you are getting a decent traffic on your blog/website. A lot many bloggers are making way more than this amount per day through Adsense.

For example, let’s assume that you’ve placed just one ad on your posts and the page views are equal to an ad impression.

If you are getting 4,000 page views per day with a click-through rate (CTR) of 1%, it will turn out to be 40 clicks on the ad in a day. As your CPC is $0.25, your revenue for that will be equal to $0.25*40= $10.

Apart from CPC, you’ll also earn from CPM ad impressions. However, this CPM earning varies depending on your niche. For average, you can consider CPM earning of $1 to $1.5 per 1,000 impressions. Nevertheless, as already mentioned above, CPM ads compete against cost per click (CPC) ads in Google ad auction, and they’ll display whichever ad is expected to earn more revenue for you.

How much Google Adsense Pays Per 1,000 Page views in India?

Per 1,000 views in India, you can make somewhere between $1 — $3 USD, depending on your niche. (Some niches are more profitable than others -as already discussed above).

Moreover, your revenue from Adsense will also depend on how many ads you are placing on your blog and how much you have optimized the ad placements so that it can get maximum impressions and clicks. (Also read: 10 Ways You Can Optimize AdSense for More Revenue)

Quick Note: This answer is with respect to those blogs who are getting most of their traffic from India. On the other hand, if you are getting a bigger audience from tier-1 countries like USA, UK, Australia, Canada, European countries etc. then the Cost per click (CPC) will be high and you’ll earn higher revenue from Adsense. However, for the blogs with a majority of Indian audience, the CPC is low.

Closing Thoughts:

Although most beginners speculate that they can easily earn tons of money by placing Google ads on their website, however, it is not as simple — especially mentioning the fact how tough it is to get your Adsense account approved (and moreover, not violating any Google Adsense guidelines or getting banned over time).

Unless you are having millions of views on your blog/website per month, you cannot make a livelihood depending just on Google Adsense.

Our suggestion, if you are not getting a massive traffic on your blog/website, then treat Google Adsense as just an extra pocket money and focus on creating alternate revenue sources like info products, ebooks, software etc to sell on your blog. (Also read: 9 Tested Ways to Monetize Your Blog.)

3. Youtube channel


I started a youtube channel in July 2016 – on which I worked for just 3 weeks making and uploading videos about cars. The channel has hardly 20 videos. Still, it has got me over 4,900 subscribers and 1.2+ million views. This helps me generate a consistent passive income for the last two years through advertisements- without even doing anything. I haven’t even logged in to that youtube channel for over 6 months and yet it is making my money online.

The channel is named- Car Shuffle. You can check it out here.

Either, I have recorded the videos using my phone camera or I’ve used free screen capturing tools on my laptop to record videos. That’s all. No DSLR, no digital camera, no voice recording headphones, absolute nothing!!

For my first channel, car shuffle, I just used the powerpoint presentations and royalty free background music to make videos. I never even showed my face once on the camera. Still, it’s getting over thousands of views (and a couple of dollars earnings) per day.

If you haven’t started your youtube channel yet, you are missing out. Videos are the future of marketing and certainly a straightforward way to make money online in India.

4. Online Tutoring

online tutoring- chegg

When I was in college, I used to make money online by simply tutoring school and college kids online. There are a number of popular websites like Chegg, Coursehero etc where you can make as high as $20 per month. Don’t believe me? Check out the websites yourself.

While tutoring, you have to choose the subject in which you have enough knowledge. There are tons of students who need help in basic courses like laws of motion or finding area/volume or a few simple mathematics questions. You can help these students in understanding the concepts, writing their assignments and help them prepare for the exams.

The best part of teaching online is that you can also google the answers and the students will never find out. I got paid for a number of questions whose answers were already present online. However, those rich kids didn’t even care to google the same question even once.

In short, if you are ready to spend some time in actively teaching the kids, then online tutoring can help you a lot to make money online in India.

4. Social Media Marketing

social media marketing

This is a relatively new way to make money online in India and these methods to make money were not available even 10 years ago. Why? Because social media like FB, Twitter, Instagram etc got fame only after the internet boom.

In this method to make money online, first, you have to start making a social following on different platforms like FB/TWITTER/ Instagram/Reddit etc. Then, either you can reach out to the companies or the people will reach out to pay you to share their content on your profile. This is called sponsored content/posts.

You can easily make as much as $5-15 for sharing a simple content/ post on your facebook page if you have made a lot of followers. This is how famous Youtubers or Instagramers make huge money.  Many of them even get sponsorship from popular brands like Nike, Puma, Adidas etc.

Anyways, if you an account on FB or Instagram with a huge following, then where to find the people who will pay?

Simple, Go to Fiverr and make an account there. Else another such website is Viral9.

5. Affiliate Marketing.

This is my favorite way to make money online in India. Why? Because you can make this income totally passive if you are ready to put some serious effort in the beginning.

How does affiliate marketing work?

Suppose your friend wants to buy a good sports shoe and you recommended an Adidas shoe for your friend. The shoe is amazing and worth Rs 2000 and he bought it. How will you feel if I say that you can get a commission of Rs 240 just because your friend bought this shoe?

This is called affiliate marketing. Here you get commission be selling someone else product just be recommending or referring them.

How to make money online in India by Affiliate marketing?

You can become an affiliate marketer partner on Amazon and recommend your friends/followers for products that are being sold on the Amazon website. If they purchase the product (by opening the link that you give/share to them)- you will earn a commission.

6. Buying and selling domains (Domain flipping)

domain flipping

Although domain flipping is a good make money online in India method, however, it requires a decent experience before you actually start making money from it. You need to have some good idea to find domains that will be appealing for the buyers.

Here, you can make money online by buying a good domain frGoDaddyddy at Rs 99 or 149 for a year and later selling it on Flippa for $80-100. If the name of the domain is attractive, rememberable- people will be willing to pay you for that. This domain flipping work can help you make an easy money of thousands of dollars if you just research the domains properly.

Here, the best approach is to keep an eye on the expired domains. Everyday thousands of domains get expired. Just keep looking and if you find a good one- buy it. Later, sell that domain on flippa at a higher cost. Simple, Right?

7. Website purchasing and selling:

Similar to domain flipping, you can do the same thing with websites. Here, you can start by purchasing a bad website on flippa or empireflippers. Then, spend some time in improving the layout, add useful contents, customize and improve the website. Later, sell that website on the same flippa/empireflippers at a higher price.

Moreover, if you think that you can make the website/blog profitable, why not to keep it for yourself? It will help you to avoid the trouble to start your blog from scratch. And through your blog, you can always earn thousands of rupees in the future.

8. Content Writing

This is also a very simple way to make money online in India. And you know what, I pay thousands of rupees monthly to the content writers to write good articles for my blog.

Moreover, content writing is not a difficult work. Even if you do not have a good idea of the topic- you can still research it on the internet and write an excellent article based on your study. Simply search the topic on google and go through the top 5-6 links. Once you have a good understanding and knowledge of that topic, write a better article which can outperform those contents.

Besides, there are multiple domains like fashion, food, book review, technology review etc which you can easily understand within hours and write a good article. Think this work like a simple article writing question during your high-school English exams.

But how to find clients. Where can you find people who will pay you to write contents?

Simple- Join Facebook groups of Content Writers (Search ‘content writers’ on facebook to find these groups).

content writing

There are many Facebook groups of content writers with over 10,000 members where the employers regularly post their requirements. Many entrepreneurs, blog owners, marketing team etc consistently keep posting their requirements- like blog niche in which they need the article, different article topics, word count and how much they are willing to pay. Just reply on the posts on these people and write for them. (Btw, you can also check for the content writing job on freelancing websites like fiverr or freelancer.com).

The best part- If you write a good article, you can easily earn up to Rs 500 for a thousand words article.

9. Kindle publishing:

Kindle publishing is another excellent way to make money online in India. And no, you do not need to be a great writer or have to write hundreds of pages to publish your first book.

My first kindle book consisted only of 22 pages and I used to sell it at Rs 49 per book online on Kindle. However, the value that I provided through the book was way above the price. I was getting at least 4-5 purchases per day (some days it was as high as 10-12). The reason why I was able to generate so many sale because there was very less competition in my niche. There were very few good books on Indian stock market written by Indian authors.

Sadly, later I’ve to remove the book from the Kindle store because I also used that ebook as a lead magnet on my blog (which helped me to build a massive email list of 18,000+ subscribers). Further, there were some copyright issues because I’ve already published similar content on my blog. In the end, I had to remove the ebook from kindle. (Nevertheless, I’m working to publish a new book on kindle soon.)

In short, you do not need to write hundreds of pages to sell on Kindle. Just write a really useful 30-40 page ebook on a topic which people want to read. And you know what, when you have published 5-6 such small ebooks, you can earn a lot of passive income and make money online by simply sitting on your couch.

10. Take photos and sell online

Here, you might need a little skill to take good photographs. But, hey it’s free to take photos!! Besides, if you have some good or unique older photos, you can always sell them online and get some additional income. Few popular websites where you can sell your photos and earn are shutter stock, fotolia, iStockPhoto, photobucket etc.

11. Teach on Udemy

You know how to play guitar, then make a short online course on ‘How to play guitar?’ and sell it on udemy. Or you know how to code, then make a coding course. You can literally make a course to teach any skill like cooking, swimming, coding, driving, foreign language and almost everything that you can think of. Moreover, lakhs of people buy these information products (courses) daily to enhance their skill.

Besides, you can charge a high premium price compared to the ebooks by selling courses on Udemy. (You can sell online courses as much as for Rs 1000 per course. However, for the ebook- the average price is generally between Rs 200-400).


Here are three more ways to make money online in India which I want to discuss in this post.

12. Starting Shopify stores, E-commerce websites or Drop-shipping

I recently launched my Shopify store and I am trying to increase sales now. However, I haven’t made a big money online using Shopify stores yet (I will keep you guys updated on my progress).
