How To Make Money With Adsense

Feb 5, 2008
The Google AdSense program is an easy way to make money online. It's such a simple concept, really: embed or surround content with relevant text-based advertisements served up automatically by Google. Visitors who come to your site to read your content make you money whenever they click an ad. It's not difficult at all.

Placing AdSense ads on your site is trivial -- it's cut-and-paste. You don't even have to worry about choosing the right kinds of ads -- AdSense scans the page and chooses the right ads automatically. Getting started with AdSense is exceedingly simple.

No, what's hard with AdSense is the same problem that all website-based content monetization schemes face: content and traffic. You can't make money with AdSense without both. No content, no visitors -- and no visitors, no clicks! It's not hard to understand at all.

Most successful AdSense publishers have more than one site. They've built a "network" of AdSense sites, each of which may only earn them a few dollars (or a few tens of dollars) per day in earnings. But get enough sites in your network and those dollars add up -- 200 sites earning even an average of $1/day is $200/day in earnings, or about $6000 per month. That's the equivalent of a full-time salary for a lot of people.

Is it easy to build so many sites? No, it's kind of daunting. You need a lot of content. You need to find cut-rate web hosting and cheap domain names. You'll want tools to create the sites.

Creating your AdSense network doesn't take as much work as think it does if you follow a few simple tricks. The first is to minimize content: start out with small sites and see what works and what doesn't. Then do everything you can to get visitors to come back, usually by getting them to sign up for a mailing list. Don't forget to use affiliate links embedded in your content for extra income. And make sure all the pages link to each other and follow basic search engine optimization rules.

Your AdSense content network needs a proper business plan in order to thrive. Start small by attacking a variety of niches using the tricks mentioned above. Build on what you have, and in a few months you'll have a great AdSense business.
