There are a number of ways to make money with Google AdSense. The most popular method is to create a website or blog and then place AdSense ads on the site. When people click on the ads you earn money. Other methods include creating YouTube videos with AdSense ads placed on them or writing eBooks that have AdSense ads in them.The amount of money earned depends on the traffic to the site and the size and location of the ad. For example a large ad on a popular website will earn more money than a small ad on a less popular website.
Google adsense Pros
- The program is free to join and it’s easy to set up.
- You don’t need to sell anything or interact with advertisers; you just need to place the code on your site and Google will do the rest.
- Adsense can also be customized to some extent so you can control what kinds of ads are shown on your site.
Google adsense Cons
- Ads can be intrusive and take away from the user experience.
- Only pays out when someone clicks on an ad so if your website doesn’t get a lot of traffic you may not earn much money.
Set up your Google adsense account.
The whole process is quite simple. You create an AdSense account, insert a small amount of code into your website pages — and that’s all you need to start. Google will display targeted ads on your page that are either relevant to the content of your website or to users’ previous searches, based on its proprietary algorithms.
Note: Make sure you select the country/territory where you currently live and where you can receive a Personal Identification Number (PIN) by mail. This will help you get paid in the future. You won’t be able to change your country/territory later in AdSense.
After you’ve connected your YouTube channel to your AdSense account, you can choose which videos to monetize and what types of ads are shown to your video viewers. Just go to your Video Manager, check the video you want to monetize and choose that video’s ad settings.
Create adsense ads.
If you have a site with a lot of content (blog, news, forum, etc.), you could utilize AdSense Custom Search on your site. Not only would it provide your users a great experience by allowing them to find specific content on your site, it would also help you maximize your Google AdSense profits by showing ads alongside your site’s search results.
There are many ways of adding ad units to your website. Depending on the website platform you use, you might need to edit the website code to add your ad units. Some platforms have built-in functionality that supports ads and make it a lot easier to add your ad unit code.
Don’t click on your own ads or ask others to click on them: Incentivizing clicks, buying Pay Per Click (PPC) space, or using a program designed to drive traffic to AdSense pages are against the rules. Remember, Google isn’t very forgiving about breaking the rules, so be sure to adhere to them.
Manage your Google adsense account.
Manage your expectations. When you sign up for AdSense, you’ll want to know what kind of revenue can you expect to see. There is a lot that goes into what kind of return you can expect, and managing those things will help you maximize your earning potential.
Do not click your ads. If Google catches you, they will suspend your account and retain any earnings you might have. However, if you, by mistakes, click your ads for one or two times, Google will keep that earning but rather not to punish you as long as it doesn’t happen constantly.
Google AdSense comes with an entire area dedicated to Reports. Check in on this at least once a week to see how your ad units are performing. You can then make informed decisions when it comes to drawing better traffic to your site, optimizing your ad placements, and more.
