Today I am going to talk about how to make money with Google Adsense, how easy it is and how much you can expect to make with this well known stream of revenue that any website owner can utilize. The adsense program has been running for many years so there are plenty of people that have used it and made money from it, but is it for you?
Google is probably the most successful search engine online, and they are pretty well trusted as a company, so it is fair to say that the different branches of their company are legitimate and of a good quality, and there are many different branches, adsense is just one of them, so lets take a look at it.
What Is Adsense?
It is a program that allows a website owner to display ads on their website using Googles vast range of advertisers, it is a free service and you could say a very easy way to earn a revenue from your website traffic. When someone clicks one of the Google ads on your website, you will get paid, that is all there is to it, it is that simple, and the amount you are paid per click can vary from a few cents, to several dollars.
This is what is known as Pay-Per Click because you are paid for every click (PPC).
You can customize your ads to blend in with your websites colors and theme, or just leave them the standard design.
If you use any of Googles services, such as Gmail then you already have an account, so it is just a matter of going to the right page to sign up for an adsense account. The easiest way to find the right page is do a search for Google Adsense and it will appear in your search results.
You will need an account as I have already mentioned, if you haven’t then just sign up for a Gmail account first. You will also need to provide a postal address during your adsense sign up process.
How Easy Is It?
The sign up process is easy enough, but beware as the big G are pretty strict with their policies and you need to read them carefully before you put any ads on your website, if you fail to adhere to their policies, then you will get your adsense account disabled and you will not be able to participate in the program again.
Here are a few of their policy headlines, but be sure to read all their policies carefully.
Invalid Clicks: Do not ever click your own ads, it is a big No No.
Encouraging Clicks: Do not ask others to click ads for you or encourage anyone to clicks your ads.
Content Guide: There is a comprehensive guide to the type of content that is, or is not accepted, so make sure your content complies.
There are more, but this is just a few that I know off the top of my head, just be sure to read their policies before you go ahead.
In the second step of the sign up process you have to tell them about your content anyway, and your website will be checked out, so do not try to get a site approved that does not comply with their guidelines.
The third step is to submit your application, and then wait for your approval.
One thing I will say is that it is best not to go with adsense until you have some good quality content on your site. If your site is new, then concentrate on building it out a little until you have some good content on there, and then you can think about getting adsense set up.
How Much Will I Make?
This could range from a few cents a month to thousands of dollars a month, it all depends on some different aspects of your site. If your site is fairly new and does not have many daily visitors, meaning very little traffic, then you will be lucky to earn more than a few cents per month. But when you have a good amount of regular traffic, then you could see a much higher monthly income.
Several years ago Jeremy Schoemaker posted a picture of his monthly check from Google Adsense and it was just shy of $133,000.00, yes that is one hundred and thirty three thousand dollars in one month. That is obviously pretty amazing, but not typical, although many people do make a lot of money using this method on their websites, but they are normally well established websites with a lot of traffic.
If you decide to go with Adsense on your website, do not expect to make thousands of dollars overnight, but you can make a little money every month, and the more popular your site becomes, the more you are likely to earn.
