What Is Google Adsense

 by: John Gall

Google Adsense is a program for web publishers that allow them to generate revenue from content they publish on the internet. Adsense publishers paste some JavaScript that Google provides into their web page and after the Google mediabot crawls the page advertising that is relevant to the content on the page is displayed. The publisher is paid each time a visitor clicks one of the Adsense ads. Advertisers pay Google each time their ad is clicked and a percentage is paid to the Adsense publisher. The side of Google’s advertising business that advertisers belong to is called Google Adwords. Google Adsense publishers are paid at the end of each month if their account balance exceeds $100.00. Adsense publishers can choose to receive a check or direct deposit. What makes Google Adsense work for most anyone is the simplicity. Google Adsense publishers only need to get content up on the internet and Google does the rest.

How To Get Started With Google Adsense?

Before you can apply to be a Google Adsense publisher you must have a web site. Once you’ve created a basic web site you can visit http://www.google.com/adsense and apply to be a Google Adsense Publisher.

How Do I Get A Web Site?

Most people cannot afford to manage a web server in their own home or business. The best way to start a web site is to contact a good Web Hosting provider like www.aplus.net A good web hosting provider will assist you in purchasing a domain name and will place your new web site on their server that is managed 24x7. Generally you will share the web server with other customers but with costs as low as $8.00 per month a shared web hosting plan is a bargain. If you plan to create web pages with FrontPage be sure to get a hosting plan that offers Front Page Extensions. This will ensure that when you hit the “Publish” button in FrontPage your new content is sent to your website.

How Do I Create Web Content?

For those who do not know HTML the easiest way to create web content is to use an application like FrontPage. FrontPage lets you build a web page in a mode that is much like using Microsoft Word but also lets you edit the code of your web page which is critical so you can place your Google Adsense code in the proper location.

What Should My Web Site Be About?

Because Google can place ads on almost every site you can create a web site about anything. The easiest way to get started is to start writing articles about things you know about. Hobbies are the easiest subject but look at your professional skills as well. The key to making money with Google Adsense is to create content in mass quantities. The more you post the larger your Google check will be at the end of the month. Don’t let yourself get into the trap of not writing because you feel it might not be an important subject. The key is to dump the contents of your brain out onto the internet. I’ve had very good luck writing articles about products I’ve used or events in my life that have taught me things.

How Money Will I Make With Google Adsense?

How much money you make is entirely up to you and your efforts. The amount depends on what subjects your web content covers and how many visitors your web content sees. Some subjects have clicks that pay very little while other pay well per click but the conversion of people who visit the site and those that click is very low. The trick is to find subjects that generate the level of income that pleases you and then keep cranking out more content to grow your income. Many people after few months of self created content get $10
