Earn Through Google AdSense
One of the easiest and best ways to make money from any Website or Blog is by using Google's very own advertising program called Google AdSense. What happens is you sign up with Google and they will give you a code to copy and paste onto your Website. Once that code is in place Ads will appear on your site. Every single time someone clicks on one of your Ads, you will receive a payment from Google, which goes directly into your AdSense account. Checks will then be paid out to you when you reach $100 income or every three months. If you are making absolutely no money from a site at the moment, then this is one of the easiest and most mindless ways to create some extra income.
You can see some of those AdSense ads on my pages here at RV-LIVING-MAGAZINE. PLEASE never click on someone’s AdSense ads to help them earn a little extra money. If you see an ad that interests you, by all means check it out, but do not "help" a friend by clicking on their ads. It can jeopardize their AdSense account. I talk a little more about this below.
There are many questions asked about the AdSense program and one of the most common questions is, "Will the Ads that appear on my site actually be relevant to my content?" The answer is yes. The geniuses at Google have devised a system that will display Ads based on the keywords that are regularly repeated on the page. This means that if you have a Website about gardening then AdSense will displays Ads about this topic.
After inserting the code you will probably see Ads for Gardening manuals and lawn mowers, etc. This is great because it means that the Ads will not look spammy as they fit in perfectly with your content. Therefore, it is far more likely that people will click your Ads and earn you some cash. Also, the fact that the Ads are provided by one of the best-known companies in the world adds credibility to the program and makes surfers more likely to click on the Ads because they know it is unlikely to be a scam or a fraud.
Another prevalent question is, "How much can I earn through AdSense?" Well, there are several factors that need to be looked at. These are the volume of traffic that comes to your site, the percentage of people who actually click on your Ads once at your site and how much am I paid per click.
If you have very low traffic, it is extremely unlikely that you can earn much from the program or any other program for that matter. However, once you have a regular flow of traffic coming to your site what you want to do is use effective techniques to increase the number of people who click your Ads.
These are things you can do to increase your click through rate, like blending your Ads in effectively with the background and using pictures. If you can increase your CTR from 1% to 15% then you will automatically increase your earnings by 1500% without having to increase your traffic.
Finally, the amount earned per click depends on how much the advertisers are bidding for that particular keyword. It all depends on the niche. Some well-paying niches pay out upwards of $20 per click whereas others will only be $0.05. In order to really maximize earnings and get a better understanding of how the whole system works it could be a good idea to get Michael Cheney's AdSense Videos Click For "AdSense Videos" They have helped a lot of internet marketers significantly increase their earnings.
Someone many of you already know is George of the Tioga RV Team. George publishes his full timing finances on his website. I know advertisements like Michael Cheney's talk about making the BIG MONEY and many people do make very large incomes from Adsense. However many people are supplementing their income very nicely with AdSense income. Take a look at George's budget page and see how someone with only one website and a very nice following is doing
One last important point to make is, do not click on your own Ads and do not tell your friends to click on your Ads. Remember, Google is extremely clever! Google has software that tracks anything that looks, even remotely, like click fraud. If you are caught (and many have been) your account will be suspended and a lifetime ban will be issued. I cannot emphasis this point too strongly. If you accidentally click on one of your own ads, I would contact Google and let them know.
