I do not know how they make their ad money but I recently saw a faucet for sale where the owner claimed profits of $24000 per month. Pinch of salt I think.

That seems absurdly high for a faucet to do really well.

I can see why freebitco.in does well because of the keyword naturally brings 1,300 per month search volume and similar related words to add that.

But I dont see any other sites to do well because of the seo done on them arent based on keywords.

Wouldn't an SEO contract be really expensive though- to the point of never profiting (considering payouts vs. ad space)?

I`m assume he refers to getting the keyword to rank by backlinks naturally, which is what google expects everyone to do vs paying the ad space.

Although it would be interesting to see the owner of freebitco.in give us just a estimate how much the site generates.

Faucets are still very profitable. They have a fixed revenue from traffic and a big revenue from advertisement and referral accounts.
Many Faucets also have web miners whose function is to use the visitor computational power to mine cryptos.

You're kidding right? Even if the webpage did harness the CPU power of the user it would be a pointless attempt at getting any serious hashrate. Drive away users for a couple measly shares in a pool? Doesn't make sense.

Anyone have some reliable info on how much bitcoin faucet sites can make in ad revenue? And how is the revenue generated - through page views? Ad clicks? Something else?

Freebitco.in, Xapo Faucet, Moon Bitcoin, there's a lot of good faucet sites that keep people coming back (and only for dust)...how much money are these site owners making on a monthly or annual basis?

Let me know what you know!

i see new faucet get potential to boom like kill allien robotcoin Roll Eyes

may be he earning 5-10btc/month

According to me, they earn more than double the amount of bitcoin which they pay daily to their users.
If they not earn that much then they would have been closed by now.

Well, in a nutshell, you get a domain name, create a website using any code you want (html is sufficient), get a faucet script, connect the Bitcoin account you want to use and the script, and find an ad service so that you'll have something for people to click on.

Do it right, and you'll see profits over time.

Well freebitco.in has to win even more per month to sustain their btc lost, take a look at the stats, some days they give out 30+ bitcoins per day and some others even 100, of course some of those are going to get wasted on gambling and some of them never get withdrawn but still, it´s a huge amount

Those are insane amounts... I'm quite sure though that a lot of that will never be touched by persons. I personally also used some faucets a couple of times only to forget about the couple of satoshis in there.

Yea but i once was away from the site for months and my money was still there, meaning that they dont take it back so even if you are not using it they still lose it, i think.

Thanks for your response. Mind if I ask a few more questions?

So the site owner can choose if they want to get paid per ad click or page views? And that it can pay from $0.50 to a few dollars per day.

IF we use freebitco.in as an example...and if that site uses the payment per 1000 page views model, the minimum amount paid out from the faucet for 1000 page views is about $1.85 (assuming a $265 bitcoin price AND that the minimum faucet payout is 700 satoshi). So that site needs to get more than $1.85 or 1,000 times the minimum faucet payout to potentially break even on their venture.

What's the average pay rate for the 1,000 page views pay model?

Dollars a day doesn't seem worth it. And maybe this was your point...giving me enough info to satisfy my question and keep me concluding that it's not worth my time.

It´s worth the time and money if you do it right, freebitco.in has a lot of other advertising ways like you can buy an ad on their webpage, they also get paid by google or depending on what company they decided to use, google pays a lot more for clicks than views, obviously they get a lot of money and they are profiting from it, they have a dice game as well so people lose more money there.

Freebitco.in are just lucky on my opinion because Google Adsense don't allow gambling content and Freebitco.in do have that as far as I know .
@OP there is planty of bitcoin advertising networks , you should use Adbit.co I'am not sure about the fees but here is the revenues (Moonbit.co.in) is basically earning 0.3 BTC a day but as yo ucan see he have a lot of traffic .
So basically all you need to know is "traffic" , if you have shitload of traffic you will have shitload of money to pay users on the faucet + some profit


Those are some good numbers, did not expect those earnings for a relatively new bitcoin based ad network.
Gotta try it out instead of Adsense on some of my blogs..

I dont know exactly how much, but it can be more then $3k a month.

The website owner may or may not want to share these details for obvious reasons. But, you can add up on freebitco.ins lottery thing, and then add the count for referral sections as well of the last paid out addresses.

So the site owner is making minimum of more then 4 btc per month just for starters.

I've been looking on starting my own faucet for quite some time now, even researching on how to create one from scratch but I don't know whether this is worth my time or not. 4 btc per month for starters is quite a big sum, but the reality is if you don't have enough traffic, you won't just take the cut. I'll be even luck to generate even half of the amount if I started doing one right now.

Reality is you need a shit ton of traffic. I would like to know what amount of bitcoin faucets are doing something like 600 dollars monthly steadily. Without tons ot traffic is impossible and there are tons of faucets out there already, so tell me how the hell would one do this?

I think the only reason why the guy pointed out $3k is because the keywords for freebitco.in is already used in his domain.

So anything saying "free bitcoin" thats free traffic towards to the faucet since it ranks almost #1 spot of google all the time.

IIRC, they earn $ 0.5 per 1000 ad views, meaning if 200 people watched 5 ads at once, meaning total views would be 1000, the faucet holder would earn what the advertiser offered.
that's why people needs referral, in order to increase the a revenue for themselves.

out of ability to use the signature, i want a new ban strike policy that will fade the strike after 90~120 days of the ban and not to be traced back, like google | email me for anything urgent, message will not be instantly responded

Why does Google pay then money? Is Googke sourcing/directing the advertisers to their site?

Anyone have any reliable numbers? "A lot" is entertaining but subject to interpretation. Any fact out there?

Google pays them because they are signed up with adsense. Google pays me as well for my site since I use adsense as well. They are also very strict about anyone sharing or revealing information regarding how much they get paid so you'll likely not get any reliable numbers.

I think your completely wrong. Every one target to earn more with these faucet sites as you said but the reality is different. You might have noticed many faucets balance is insufficient to pay users this is because they can't make profit so much so after couple of days or weeks they will stop paying. When you jump into these experiments then only one will come to know the fact.

It's true worth, is in what it has built up through time ---> http://www.siteprice.org/website-worth/www.freebitco.in {I doubt if someone would pay that}

If you start out with a faucet, and inject some of your own capital, and provide a multi-functioned service like they do, you would end up with that kind of site statistics. The adverticement income is a added bonus

and the profit margin would be sizeable. Most faucets make the mistake, to go in slowly with Ad income received from these advertisers, and then they get low interest from viewers and it colapse quickly.

The competition is so stiff out there, for you to come in on the low end of payments these days.  Sad

It can't be easy making money on these faucets as many new ones run dry after a few days,especially those paying 1,000 per hour.

i think that faucet which paid more than 500 satoshi per hour, very difficult to make profit
especially if the majority visitors from Russia and etc.

1k Satoshis is VERY high, it'll only take 5 people gathering from the faucet to cost $0.01 USD, which is completely unsustainable.

When I used to be doing faucets, it took me a month of constant collection for ~8 different sites to make a similar amount.

Most faucets just earn enough to keep them going. You'll be lucky to earn enough from Ads and Captchas to keep it running, don't think you'll get rich from a faucet.
