    You're not allowed to disclose the amount. It's part of google's terms.

    I haven't applied for them yet, but when I will I'll be sure to read the T.O.S.

    Maybe we can play the "hot, cold" game with the number... that way nobody can be accused of telling outright. :p

    Seeing as Henyman got booted off of his Google ads (for cheating clicks! :eek:) he might be willing to disclose the amount, in private of course.

    However, I wouldn't condone such an action as PM'ing him to ask.

    *runs away*

    Well now you do :D

    To my knowledge they pay varying amounts based on the site and throughput, the amount doesn't vary greatly, but web masters aren't allowed to discuss the amount they receive. Most people seem satisfied with the ads though, they've spread to enough sites anyway :)

    That's actually not true anymore (although it used to be). The TOS document was updated in March this year with a new clause:

    "However, You may accurately disclose the amount of Google’s gross payments to You pursuant to the Program."

    Don't advertizers pick an amount they want to set per-click (with a minimum of course)?

    I can't beleive Heny got caught. Everyone knows you pay someone else to fake the clicks then you have plausibile deniability.

    What you get for each click depends on what type of ads you get. There are sites out there that do specific topics so they can get specific high paying ads from google.

    http://www.macalua.com/ has a lot of adsense tips, and more importantly, a lot of links to people who have had success with adsense like the owner of Weblogs Inc who has disclosed he makes 4k dollars a day off adsense throughout his 80+ blogs.

    Yeah, it's still against the TOS to reveal the details though (the CPM and all that). As long as you only talk about the total that you receive, it's all good. :)
