|How to make money with Google AdSense|
Google AdSense is a free program that allows anyone who has their own website to earn revenue by displaying relevant ads on their website. AdSense delivers relevant ads to your site that are targeted to your sites content. AdSense also allows you to add a search facility to your site and will return relevant ads that are targeted to the search results.
How it works
The ads that Google shows on a website are directly related to the website's content. This ensures that your visitor will be interested in these ads and click, earning you and your website revenue.
This is known as Google AdSense for content and Google will pay for each click. Google also pays per-thousand-impressions (CPM). This is useful if your site has lots of traffic as every thousand unique visitors to your site will generate more revenue.
I’m not going to lie to you and tell you that next year you will be a millionaire! You only have to do a quick search in Google to find stories about how Joe Blogs earned $100,000 a month from advertising on his Dating website. Whether these stories are true or not, there is money to be made from Google Adsense but how much you earn really depends on you and your websites content.
The commission you earn per click is dependent on how much advertisers pay Google for a particular ad and obviously some ads will pay out more than others. It stands to reason that keywords such as debt free, jobs, save money, make money, mp3 etc. will earn more money per click since these are highly competitive keywords that are searched for most frequently on the web.
The amount you earn also depends largely upon the amount of traffic you receive to your website, where you place your ads, how well the ads match your target audiences’ interests and obviously how many clicks per ad you receive.
- Content is King
Generally, the more content you have the greater the earning potential. It is probably a good idea to create a website on a topic you have a lot of experience or passion for so as you are able to create lots ad lots of original content for your website.
- Submit your website to the major search engines
One way to get traffic to your website is to submit it to all the major search engines. To submit your website to any of the major search engines, such as Google, Yahoo, Bing etc., is absolutely free however, don’t expect to be listed straight away, some sites will take months to index or crawl your website and add it to their listings.
- Exchanging links
Partnering up with other similar websites and exchanging links is another way to send traffic to your website – you place a link to someone else’s website on your own site and they do the same for you.
- Post in Blogs
Another way to get your website known is to post articles on related blogs or forums.
- Add a “Recommend This Site” or “Add This” link
Adding a "Recommend This Site" or “Add This” to your website using tools such www.addthis.com/ can help improve your website traffic. If someone visits your website and knows of someone else who may appreciate it, they can use this feature to e-mail the page's link to a recipient or share the link via social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
In my experience, and I have created several websites for myself and for other clients, I have yet to see any great gains from the Google AdSense program and still waiting for that 6 figure cheque however, having said that, there IS money to be made through the AdSense program. How much is really dependent on how much work you are willing to put in to your website and how patient you are.
