1) CPM

What is CPM in AdSense?

CPM means 'Cost Per Thousand.' in CPM Google consider 'M' as a Thousand in Roman Number System. CPM is the most important factor for both Advertiser and Publisher. publisher means Content Creator. i.e. Bloggeror YouTuber
but actually what is the meaning of CPM-Cost Per Thousand?

Let's take an example. suppose an Advertiser wants advertising on Blogger or on Youtube to promote their product. for that Advertiser apply the request to Google AdWords and determine a specific Amount for 1000 ad views. that is Cost Per Thousand (CPM).

in short,
CPM= Specific Cost for 1000 advertisement Views that seen by Audiences.


2) CPC

What is CPC in AdSense?

CPC means 'Cost Per Click' this is also a very important factor for both Advertiser and Publisher. in google AdSense money can be earned in two ways (1) CPM- Cost Per Thousand and (2) CPC- Cost Per Click. we have already discussed What is CPM in AdSense.
Let's Know the actual meaning of CPC with an example for better understand.

Suppose an Advertiser's Advertisement displaying on your blog and Completed 1000 Ad Views by Audiences that is CPM; but what if some people click on that advertisement? in that situation, Advertiser must have pay different amount of money for that clicks to Google and Google also pay different Amount of money to the Publisher for those clicks. that is CPC-Cost Per Click.


in the previous example of CPM, the cost of CPM is fixed i.e. fixed cost for 1000 ad views but in CPC the cost of CPC-Cost Per Click is different according to a valuable keyword. if the keyword is costly then the CPC will high and vice-versa.

in Short,
CPC= Cost for Clicks on Advertisement by Audience.

3) CTR

What is CTR in AdSense?

CTR means 'Click Through Rate' there are many ads displaying on a blog and suppose seen by 1000 viewers that is CPM (Cost Per Thousand). among them 150 people click on those ads. That is CPC (Cost Per Click) (we have already discussed What is CPC in Adsense?) and the total percentage of clicks (CPC) on 1000 views (CPM) is the CTR-Click Through Rate.

this is not an earning point but it shows the total earnings earned by CPM and CPC.

in Short,
the formula of CTR is CTR=(CPC×100)÷CPM,
if CPM=1000, CPC=150 then,
CTR=(150×100)÷1000=15%,
CTR=15%.

you must maintain your CTR. if your CTR increased greater than 15% then its a danger zone; Google may disable your AdSense account.
