Websites that register several hundred or even several thousand visitors per day will be able to take full advantage of the potential of advertising management.

In order to start earning money with Google Adsense, you will need a minimum of a few hundred visitors.

An economic model at CPM and CPC
Two economic models coexist on Adsense models:

  • At Cost per mile: This model corresponds to the price paid by the advertiser for 1000 views / displays of the advertisement.
  • At cost per click: This is to compensate you for the number of clicks on the banner or text ad that is displayed on your site.When a user clicks on the ad, you will receive the amount defined by the advertiser, obviously as a deduction from the platform's commission.

Google Adsense offers a tool to sort these elements in the event that advertisers do not have their own images and their own advertising media.
