Top 10 Adsense earning Indian websites
You might be wondering that not only bloggers make much income but some Indian websites also make huge Adsense income. Its not always true that a blogger like Amit Agarwal of labnol or Harsh of SML or Amit Bhawani or Raju of TechPP will make a fortune out of Adsense. But there are some Indian websites which do earn a lot by monetizing their site with Google Adsense. I have a list of few such Indian websites which does have good amount of traffic and of course income too.

How I calculated Adsense income:
On an average big branded websites with huge traffic will get atleast 1$ CPM rate because of direct advertisers and targeted visitors with high budgets. Google will place sites with huge traffic for bidding and the bidder who quotes more will get a chance to show their ad on a particular site. So I took 1 dollar as an average Cost Per Million (CPM) value. The formula I used to calculate is given below.
No of Ad units * Page impressions per day * 1$[CPM] / 1000
Example: 3 * 3,00,00,000 * 1$[CPM] / 1000
Things to Note:
  • I Have made all the calculations taking the approximate traffic into consideration.
  • These calculations don't include earnings made from clicks.
  • These calculations are purely estimated ones no claim that these are accurate values. Accurate earnings may be higher or very lower compared to the stats I have posted here.
  • Ranking is also not accurate one, I just made it purely on their estimated earnings.

1. Network 18 Websites:                                             3.75 Crore Rs/PM
Network 18 has a very big network of websites like In.com, Money control, IBN live, First Post, Askme, Cricketnext, etc to name all it takes half of this page. You can read about their websites in my post Top most visited Indian websites. All these websites do have sub domains and also unique domains and stand strong among top 25 Indian websites generating tons of traffic individually. I calculated for In.com, Money control and First post combined they have 25 million page views a day. I dint take all the websites into account it might well increase the stats so not precise but these values are approximate values.

Approx Daily Page Views : 25,00,0000 (25 Million)
Approx Monthly Page Views : 75,00,00,000 (750 Million)
Average Adsense income: 3.75 Crore Rupees per month.

This website has an ad unit of 728x90 just above its header.It too has network of websites like gaana, itimes, femina, boxtv, Zigwheeles, filmfare etc. I just took Times of India visitors into consideration and calculated the approximate earnings.

Naukri,Click India, etc are some other Indian websites which do make much from Adsense program. Once again I say all the above calculations are made solely on estimations. I don't claim that these are the actual earnings but they are close to the actual numbers. Sometimes earnings might not be so high because low paying keywords which will earn low. So this post is just an idea on how much an Indian website could make using Adsense.
