# How to Calculate CPC of Ads Displayed on Your Blog (Cost Per Click)

To calculate this value, we can use two different methods. Each method is explained below with examples.
1. Calculate CPC from CPM and CTR:

The 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 an 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

Steps to Calculate CTR

2. Calculate CPC from Total Earning and CTR:

The 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. To calculate the 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.
