WHAT IS GOOGLE ADSENSE
Google AdSense is a advertising program that allows you to run ads on your website or blog, or YouTube videos, and get paid when when visitors click on them. The ads are generated from businesses that use Google’s AdWords program.
For new websites or blogs, the AdSense program can be one of the fastest ways to generate income, which is why it’s so popular.
But while AdSense is free and easy to use, there are aspects you need to understand about it, and things you can do to maximize your success with it.
Pros and Cons to Making Money with Google AdSense
The Google AdSense program has several great advantages including:
✅It’s free to join.
✅Eligibility requirements are easy, which means you can monetize your website or blog even when it’s new.
✅There are a variety of ad options and several you can customize to fit the look and feel of your site.
✅Google pays monthly (if you meet the $100 threshold) by direct deposit.
✅You can run ads on several websites from one AdSense account.
✅There are options to run ads on mobile devices and RSS feeds.
✅You can easily add it to your YouTube and Blogger accounts.
there are a few drawbacks to AdSense as well*
✅Google can terminate your account in an instant, and it’s not very forgiving if you break the rules.
✅Like all forms of online income, you need traffic in order to make money.
✅When people click on an AdSense ad, you do make some money, but your visitor also leaves your site, which means you lose the opportunity to make money with higher paying affiliate products or your own products and services.
✅It doesn’t necessarily pay more than other similar programs.
Google AdSense Payments
Google pays monthly through direct deposit or check, but will not issue an AdSense payment until your earnings reach or exceed $100. If you don’t earn $100 in one month, your earnings roll over and are added to the next month. Each time you reach the $100 threshold, Google will issue a payment on the next payment period. Through your AdSense account, you can see your current earnings, what ads are generating the most clicks, and more.

Using internet search technology, Google will serve ads that are relevant to the specific content of that web page. For instance, if someone is on a web page that’s covering the latest golf tournament, Google will serve ads for golf clubs or golfing attire. If you own that site, you get paid every time someone clicks on that ad. Not too shabby. This is usually called Cost Per Click (CPC) advertising.
. You cannot expect to throw Google Ads onto your site, sit back, relax, and watch the money roll in. It doesn’t work that way. Like anything in business, it takes an investment of your time to get a return that you can bank on.
How It Works
For example, you currently have a blog or website that gets 100,000 visitors every single month. That’s over 1 million every year. Sounds like something that could make you money, right? Well, think of this:
You have 100,000 ad impressions (views)
You have a CTR (click through rate) of 1 percent, which is standard
1 percent of 100,000 = 1000
If the CPC of the ad is $0.01, you make $10
If the CPC of the ad is $1.00, you make $1,000
There’s a big difference between the two, and obviously, most ads do not pay out at the $1/click rate. The more obvious and widespread the keyword of the ad, which is what triggers the ad itself, the lower the CPC. And that is info you can use.
Whether you want to make money off the blog or website you already have, or you want to create a blog with the sole purpose of making AdSense money, there are several ways you can increase your revenue:
✅Use SEO (Search Engine Optimization) writing to maximize the keywords in your content.
Write more. The more you write about your subject, the more keywords you have for Google to search and feed ads to.
✅Write often. More content is everything, and the fresher the better.
Post useful, accurate content. When you post garbage filled with keywords, it is difficult to read and doesn’t bring people back. You want your site to be sticky, so it generates traffic.
✅Find a niche. Talking about football is all well and good, but thousands of people are doing it. But movie soundtrack collections, that’s another story.
✅Don’t create too much bad traffic. It’s easier than you’d think to create a lot of traffic, but if it’s not qualified, and people aren’t there to read your content, then it will be a flash in the pan. It also affects your CTR.
✅Make use of Google Analytics. Google gives you the free tools to make a profit.
