Making Money with AdSense

It Should Be Called “Make Money With Google”

If you are trying to make money online then there is one thing in particular that you need to know before you get started and that is the importance of Google in your efforts to succeed. When people talk about making money online what they are pretty much always talking about is trying to make money with Google. How can this be true I hear you shout incredulously? Well, whether we like it or not Google runs a large portion of the Internet. Their search engine accounts for over 70% of all the searches done in the USA and a massive 87% in the UK. This means that if you want to make money online you are going to have to learn to love Google, and I know that’s not always very easy for various reasons which I will go into in a future post.

We have to take advantage of the fact that Google has a virtual monopoly on the search market by building our sites in a manner that Google likes to encourage it to put us closer to the top of the SERPs. You can do this in two ways, the first is the black hat method which attempts to trick the Google algorithm into believing our site is more relevant and important than it is. I don’t recommend taking this course of action if you want to be making money online over the long haul because the people working for Google are pretty clever and if you can’t keep ahead of the game they are going to catch you eventually and punish you for your insubordination.

The way most professionals approach search engine optimization is generally from a white hat perspective with a little bit of gray thrown in for good measure. In an ideal world, we would be able to follow the Google guidelines for getting sites ranked better and the best site would win. Unfortunately, in the real world, this doesn’t work because no one else is playing by the rules, so we have to bend them a little ourselves if we are to keep up.

Regardless of how you do it, making Google love your sites is the key to getting the traffic which in turn puts the money in your account.

What is Google Adsense?

Google AdSense is a service run by Google that places ads on websites or blogs. Each time a visitor clicks on that Google Adsense ads in your blog, you will get some money. So, Google Adsense is a pay-per-click (PPC) program. The Google Adsense ads come from another Google Service – Adwords. If you want to understand Google Adsense, you need to understand Google Adwords. Because Adwords is where your Adsense payment comes from!

Nobody counts the number of ads you run; they just remember the impression you make.

What is Google Adwords?

Advertisers submit their ads to Google using the AdWords program. They write a headline and a short piece of text and they choose how much they want to pay for each click they receive. Google then decides where to put those ads. Let’s say the advertiser prepared to pay $1,000 a month for his advertising budget but not more than $1 for a click.

So, the payment for your Google Adsense comes from the advertiser’s budget. That’s why Google prohibited you from self-clicking Google Adsense ads placed in your blog. You are also not allowed to entice visitors to click on your Google Ads. When an advertiser signs up to AdWords, he has no idea where his ads are going to turn up. When you sign up for AdSense, you’ve got no idea how much you’re going to be paid for the ad space on your page. You leave it to Google to decide whether to give you ads that could pay just a few cents per click or ads that could pay a few dollars per click.

Make Money With Google Adsense is All About Content

If your blog has great, unique, and high-quality content, there will be no problem getting free traffic from search engines. So, you must invest your time in creating great content. Just FOCUS on content from the beginning until the end. How to create great content that attracts targeted visitors will be explained in later tutorials. Making money with Google Adsense is indeed a tough job. Not everyone has the passion to continue creating great content for his blog. Thus, making money with Google Adsense is not for people who have excused all the time.

Identify profitable topics within that niche

I hope you already have an idea of how Google Adsense works. To make money with Google Adsense, we must rely on free traffics from Search Engines like Google or Yahoo. So, it is important to get your blog rank in the first few pages in Google or Yahoo for keywords in your selected niche. A niche is a focused topic within a general topic.

Google will decide which websites or blogs suit ads like that and put them where it sees fit, charging the advertiser up to a dollar a click until the advertiser’s budget runs out.

For example. GOLF is a broad general topic. It is extremely hard to compete with other established websites using that keyword.

So, find a niche in GOLF! For example, GOLF TIPS or LEARN GOLF or WOMAN GOLF. Well, perhaps that example already has so many competitors. So, you can narrow down your niche.


Not All Niche is Profitable

Yeah.. you got your niche and you decided to create a blog on that niche and related keywords.

Profit = Demand > Supply

The higher the demand than supply for the keywords related to your niche, the better chances for your blog to be listed in the first few pages on Google. If your blog is listed in the first few pages on Google, the number of visitors to your blog will be higher. Hence, more chances for them to click your Adsense ads. So, more Google Adsense money! That’s why it is important to do some research first on your niche before starting to create a blog to make money with Google Adsense.

Unless you already have a Google Adsense account and an established niche blog with steady traffic. Then you can focus on how to get more legal “clicks” on your Google Adsense ads (warning! illegal clicks will cause an account suspension.

Signing Up Made Easy

I got many bloggers asking why their application to Google Adsense was rejected. Yes, nowadays it is getting more and more difficult to get new Google Adsense approved. Reason? Google AdSense has revised its requirements for new accounts.

AdSense started receiving a massive number of spam account registrations from India, Pakistan, Philippines, Malaysia, China, etc.

As a result, Google imposed some strict requirements for all the account signups coming from these countries.

Here are some tips that could help in signing up with Google Adsense and getting approved.

1. Blog/Website Age

Your blog/website should be at least 6 months old at the time of application.

You see, in the past, even a one-day-old website could easily be signed up for a new Google Adsense (provided the website has enough content – at least 20 pages).

But, now you have to wait for the website or blog to be at least 6 months. Anyway, I think this is good because you can use the time to focus on building, creating, and adding high-quality content.

2. Own Domain

Your blog/website should be on a top-level domain (eg Yes! Signing up with Google Adsense is a lot easier if you have your domain.

3. Original Content, Updated

Content on your blog should be original for that specific niche and updated regularly.

If you do not follow the requirements given above, your application for a new AdSense account will get rejected and that applies especially to users from India, Pakistan, Philippines, Malaysia, China.

4. Having a Blog with English dominant content

Google Adsense is not available for all languages. It’s available in English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, and a few other languages.

So, to get a new Google Adsense to account approved. I would highly suggest using ENGLISH in your blog.

5. Put Privacy Policy which mentions Google Adsense.
