Google AdSense - How to Make Easy Money With Google AdSense


Some people think that making money with Google AdSense is hard; but in fact, it is quite the opposite. Setting up Google ads on your site is simple, and you can earn from it rather quickly.

First of all, Google AdSense is a program that welcomes any webmaster or blogger to sign up for free, and display Google ads on their site or blog.

Marketers and companies are paying Google every time someone clicks on their ad, whether it be from Google itself, or from a participating website or blog.

This is called "Pay Per Click Advertising" and it is one of the most popular forms of advertising nowadays. It is more important to have a Google or Yahoo listing these days than it is to be in the Yellow Pages. This is because the internet is more accessible and convenient for more people searching to satisfy their needs.

Companies or webmasters pay to show up (in the Google search engine) for certain keywords or keyword phrases such as "lose weight" or "make money." They have to place a maximum bid, which is the maximum amount of money they are willing to pay for one click.

When someone does a Google search for a keyword, their ad spot shows up if they bid on that keyword. If the surfer or visitor clicks on their ad, the company or webmaster must then pay Google for the click.

Companies are bidding against each other for top listings. For popular niches, each click can be costly. That is why it is so lucrative to make money with Google AdSense.

When you venture out to make money with Google AdSense, you must keep in mind that there is no adult-related materials allowed (such as pornography or racist) or offensive materials of any kind. There may be a few other restrictions regarding online gambling and other related activities.

But for the most part, it is very easy to make money with Google AdSense. Many people earn a full time income from it alone. More and more bloggers are becoming famous - and rich - due to the money they make from Google ads placed on their blogs.

In order to make money with Google AdSense, you must have a website or a blog. The difference between the two is trivial. They are both 'websites' - Your own website costs a small amount of money for the domain name and hosting. Your blog can be free, or it can cost you a little money too if you're going to get a domain and host for it. Let me explain...

A blog will give you your own domain name, but it will have the blog company's name in the URL as well. For instance, if it's a free blog from Blogger.com, it would be something like: YourBlogName.blogspot.com. Of course, you would replace 'YourBlogName' with whatever you want your blog's web address to be.

If you are in the weight loss niche, your blog URL might be something like, "LoseWeightFast.Blogspot.com." If you want your own personal and brandable domain name (YourDomainName.com or YourDomainName.com/blog), it only costs about $8-$10 for a .COM domain name and around that same amount for a hosting account.

My suggestion is to upload your blog to your own host and give it a domain name representing your company or profile. It only costs a little more per month, but it'll give your blog a more professional image; hence, building your reputation.

Once you sign up for a free account with Google AdSense, you can start displaying ads on your site within minutes. You don't need to have a super popular site with millions of viewers in order for Google to do business with you, like what some people might think.

Anybody with a website or blog can sign up for a free Google AdSense account. They give you the HTML code for you to copy and paste in your website, so that ads related to your content will automatically show up on your site/blog wherever you want them to be displayed.

As far as monetizing your site with Google AdSense, it doesn't matter whether you are using a free blog or a paid one (with domain name and hosting). As long as you can drive traffic to the site, you are in good shape.

That is the name of the game by the way - driving web traffic to your site/blog. Once you have a website or blog up in the niche that you want to market to, and have added some useful content to it, you can then place some Google AdSense ads on your site and earn a decent income by driving traffic to it.

You may use Pay-Per-Click Advertising for your own sites, online classified ad sites, article marketing, press releases, video marketing, social network marketing, and other methods to generate traffic. By the way, search engines love blogs; so as long as you post beneficial and keyword-optimized content on your blog, the search engines will find it.

To recap, here are the steps:

Create a website or start a blog, sign up for a free account with Google AdSense, and place the ad code on your site. Then, advertise your website or blog using various techniques of getting traffic and exposure.

These are just the basics for learning how to make money with Google AdSense. I hope you have a much better idea of how it works and what you need to do to get started.

You can make money with Google AdSense in a multitude of ways, and it costs little to nothing to get started. You can start earning money within hours of launching your site or blog, so just do it!
