*whether we can calculate the Cost Per Click rate of advertisements shown on our blogs ?*. If there is only one click, the amount you have received by that click is the Cost Per Click. It is the exact amount you will receive once a reader clicks on the advertisement shown on your webpage. However, it will be difficult to find this value if your AdSense unit received multiple clicks. If there are multiple clicks, you can follow the steps below to calculate average CPC of an ad unit.

**Steps to Calculate Average CPC of Ads Shown on Your Blog**

To calculate this value, we can use two different methods. Each methods are explained below with examples.

__Calculate CPC from CPM and CTR__:

Formula to calculate Cost Per Click from CPM (Cost Per 1000 impressions) and CTR (Click Through Rate) is given below.

CPC = CPM / (1000 × CTR)

Let us consider a AdSense unit with CPM rate $10 with 2% CTR. According to the above formula, the Cost Per Click will be 10/(1000 * 2%) = 0.5

If you do not know the terms in the equation provided, you are welcome to read our tutorials explaining those terms. To learn more about CTR, follow the link below.

__Calculate CPC from Total Earning and CTR__:

Average Conversion rate of a click = Total income / Total number of clicks

To explain it, let us take an example. If your website received 5000 impressions on a day with 40 clicks and the net income is $15. So to calculate average CPC of the day follow the steps given below.

Average CPC of the day= Total income / Number of clicks

= 15/40

= 0.375

As it is calculated in dollar we need to put $ in front of the output. Here the Average CPC of the day is $0.375.
