I could not believe it, right from the 90s, and school days, we all understand that Wikipedia as always been a major source of Huge Web Traffic, because the volume of information that is available in there.
Most Relevance Search queries online today, often times, as Wikipedia as the fist page result, and it as grow as a Brand Globally over the years, to the end that, majority of Online Readers, have come to trust the content and information available on Wikipedia, than any other website in the world.
This is great, But i wanna show you something today, Wikipedia doers not earn money via any advertisement, because its a free information website, with lesser image, which makes the web pages to load pretty fast.
But, Guess what?
There was a report that was recently documented on Quora.com on how much Wikipedia would earn, if it monetizes with Adsense and the calculation proves it will earn Millions of Dollars Monthly, I was amaze and am sure, most Bloggers and Adsense Publishers will be shocked too, knowing, how difficult, it can be sometimes, to get quality Traffic to your Blog, that has Adsense on it.
Well, let’s see what the report says;
This is great!
For those who could not read the image above well, the report says;
” Maybe Close to $500 Million would be earn from Adsense on Wikipedia English Version”.
