WordAds revenue – How much money can you make ? Is it worth it ?

1) The damage done – How the WordAds will modify your page layout
The WordPress ad program WordAds has been activated on DVDBASH.COM a few months ago, and the website layout (Twenty Eleven theme) is kinda ruined by the ads positions. There are 3 ads placements: the leaderboard at the top of the page (ugly but rewarding), the middle rectangle at the bottom (inoffensive), and – by far the worst – the wide skyscraper that goes into your sidebar. See for yourself, this page is displayed with the showcase template:


2) The WordAds earnings – Don’t expect much and you won’t be disappointed
Despite its not-so-bad web traffic (1.22 million views in 2015), the generated income on DVDBASH.COM is low. Here are the statistics for November 2015, December 2015 and January 2016:

  • 280.574 views in 3 months, that’s an average of 93.525 views/month
  • 115.258 ad impressions in 3 months, that’s an average of 38.419 ad imp./month
  • $127.83 earned in 3 months, that’s an average of $42.61/month
  • According to these numbers, you need 900 ad impressions to make $1


3) Should you run WordAds on your WordPress-hosted website ?
If you have been accepted into the WordAds program, and if you don’t care about a messed-up design layout, you can try to monetize your blog. Optimize your web pages, run some ads for, let’s say, one year, and see how much you’ve earned.

The stats show that DVDBASH should have 220.000 views/month to make $100/month. Do the math!

  1. hi,,i just want ask..how much ad impressions are required to get $1?
    and moreover do blogger.com ad rates are more in comparision to wordads rates?,b’coz in blooger we get google adsense….everybody says..its a google’s creation si it will give more in adsense…so is it right?
    shall I open an blogger.com or blogspot.com account as well..with an intention to earn money through advertisement?
    please do help & guide me

  2. Hello,
    The ratio for 2016 on DVDBASH is $1 for 1306 ad impressions.
    I don’t know if Google AdSense is better, but YES, if your goal is to make $$$, you should have multiple blogs on different platforms, the more, the better. Duplicate and interlink – cleverly – your content.
    Blogging is a time-consuming activity, optimizing your websites for monetization can be a long and tedious process. Good luck!

    • If you don’t want to waste any time with hosting and maintenance, and if you want a very QUICK SEO PROGRESS within the first months, WP.COM is for you. But everything has a price… in our case, $28/year for the domain registration and $96/year for the 50Gb storage. WordAds help pay for that cost, but you will need a lot of ad impressions.

      If you have a lot of time on your hands, or if you can’t afford the fees, go for WP.ORG. But WP.COM perfectly suits our needs, even if it’s a little too pricey. The Google crawling and indexing is excellent – If you know how to optimize your content for SEO – , and it’s easy to have a perfect page rank on specific keywords, i.e. your niche.

  3. Personally, I am more of a fan of AdSense, so if I happen to make a wordpress blog, I’ll pick wordpress.org, which allows AdSense. Yes, I have a domain approved on AdSense and I made 0.04 with 20 views, so its okay I suppose and they also do PPC, which can REALLY increase your earnings.

  4. You’ve all reason.

    I’ve a Spanish blog with 50-70k visits/month and with your ads configuration. However, I just earn 33-37$/month. It’s very low.

    And worst, it’s you cannot use other ads, just WordAds.. but we’ll, they pay domain and you can earn 200-400$ by year.
