How exactly does Google Adsense work?

Every time you go to a webpage with advertisements on it, whether or not they are textual ads or banner advertisements, chances are they originated from Google Adsense. Google is basically the middle man between advertisers and webmasters. An advertiser will come to Google and say "I'd like to display my dog food advertisement on any webpage related to dogs and I'm willing to pay $.38 for each click you can get me." Now, webmasters flock in and display these advertisements while trying to gather as much traffic and clicks as possible. The clicks turn into money and everyone is happy.
The reason why Google Adsense is so popular is because of its ease of use and how quickly one can make money using it. There's virtually no restrictions as to who can display advertisements and the payments are always guaranteed.

The way to really make money with Google Adsense is to pick a niche that pays a good amount per click for each keyword. For example, the niche "investments" or "lawyers" or "insurance" can pay multiple dollars per click while a word such as "cell phone adapter" could pay 40 cents or less per click. By doing research before displaying adsense advertisements, you can save yourself not only a lot of time, but you can make a lot more money in the long run.

Webmasters also make the mistake of not displaying their adsense advertisements in those most appropriate places on their websites. Often, webmasters will not place the advertisement in a place where it is most likely to get clicked by a lurking visitor - instead they will put it in the easiest place or at the bottom of their webpage. The average visitor will stay on a webpage for less than 15 seconds, so you need to be sure that anything on your webpage that is put their to make money is being put in front of the visitor quickly.
