    The Adsense Revenue Share Finally Revealed!

    Google has finally revealed the details of the revenue share of Adsense for content and for Search.

    Apparently, the publisher gets 68% of the revenue with Adsense for content, and gets 51% of the revenue with Adsense for search.

    Google also says that the percentage has never changed since launch for Adsense for content in 2003, and since 2005 for Adsense for search (when the increased it).

    This level of transparency is really refreshing and is very much unlike Google. I think this change in behaviour is a direct result of increased competition and G realising that they can't bully publishers anymore.

    The full article is here

    68% is not too much.

    I replaced many google adsense banners to affiliate banners. I realize that the conversion rate is higher with affiliate networks, insteat PPC networks.

    68% is the total figure that is shared out. The webmasters that are smart priced get less. Some premium publishers may get more.

    Its better then nothing.

    Google has a large overhead - they have to process the payments, take care of the servers, mail checks, make direct deposits, take care of disputes,,,,,. I'am pretty sure the people at google stay pretty busy.

    I think it's a pretty fair cut for the publisher.

    I've always thought it would be much lower than that.

    I think that's fair enough and I dont think we could complain considering the fact that google is spending more on overhead cost. Whining is certainly not a good idea, after all google share the bucks to quite a number of charities too.
