15 Highest Google Adsense Earners in the World

I have seen many questions on social networking sites like

  • Who is the top Adsense earner?
  • Who makes the massive amount online?
  • How much they earn online?
  • How much Google Adsense pays?

For a lot of people, blogging has become a primary source of revenue. If you are reading this, I bet you are one of the bloggers, willing to know about the highest Adsense earners. Making money has never been an easy job for them and never will be. They got succeeded in their job because of their hard work and clever mind.

First of all, I want to tell you they all have some informational content published on World Wide Web. They all are earning from blog or websites by monetizing Google Adsense (one of the highest paying online network) or other advertising network. The listed sites are really inspiring for all of you, and more inspirational are the men behind these websites. We are presenting some of the huge websites that are making massive amount of money using Adesnse.

Note: It’s just an estimate based on total page-views CPC, and unique visitors. And since their website’s ranking/traffic changes every month, these earnings are not fixed.

  • Waleed Barakat says:

    Thanks of the nice post, but i have criticism, Who is your source of this information? Do you talked to them directly or Google Adsense declared that to the public?

    I know you may decline approve my comment but we need to know from where you get this info and if it’s true 🙂

    • Varun Kumar says:

      Glad you ask this question Waleed Barakat.
      They are the top earners in internet market. So it’s pretty easy to analyze their overall unique visitors (along with geographical location) and pageviews. And if anyone (Adsense user) knows the number of pageviews he can easily estimate the average earning which depends much on location, CPC and CTR. Along with this we also analyze their ad placement, number of ads on a single page/post, etc.
      P.S We never decline any comment until it’s bad language/spam. You are always welcome to ask any question 🙂

    • Charles Roffander says:

      Don’t you realize yet that this whole site is nothing but one big joke? Google would never allow someone to post their adsense earnings!

      • Varun Kumar says:

        Who told you that Charles? Google would never allow someone to post CPC, CTR or RPM details. But you can tell people how much you have earned (not an exact figure) this month/year through AdSense.

  • Dhammainfo says:

    Great Inspiration ….

      • Varun Kumar says:

        You have only just begun. Lot of work to do. You are direct in competition with millions of other sites. It’s not that easy Herbert. For first six month just focus on your content.

    • Varun Kumar says:

      Thanks for appreciating our work Umesh.
      Since we don’t want to provide any fault advertisement on online earning, that’s the reason we haven’t included any tricky/untrue “make money online” kind of posts. Earning on daily basis really needs a lot of hard work.
      We will absolutely post all fair suggestions once we cross $10,000 per month.

  • Very helpful info. Thank you!

  • wely joedy says:

    Great article… We are competing among millions websites. My website, socialgadgetnews.com, has just been published around 7 months, I need to do a lot of work, focus on content, blog walking. What do you think blog walking is great ways to increase traffic? How do we post a great article, just rewrite from other blog or compile some article? Anyway, thanks for sharing….

    • Varun Kumar says:

      Hello Wely,
      Rewriting or rehashing article from other blogs is not gonna help you in long term. Google panda will hunt you down after some time. Try to add unique value that can’t be found anywhere else. Give readers a reason to visit you again.
