The Secrets Of Making Money With Adsense

by: David Watson

Everyone is searching for the online secrets to making money, and many people will tell you that the easiest way to make money online with the Google Adsense.

With Google Adsense, you don't have the problem of dealing with customers, dealing with sales staff, or dealing with customer support. AND, many people are earning significant amounts every month with Google Adsense.

So, What are the secrets of earning money from Google Adsense?

Essentially, there are no real secrets - it's all just common sense.

If you are able to create a simple website, then you are capable of earning money from Google Adsense. You just need to apply a few common sense tips to your website building process, and you can maximize your potential income from Google Adsense.

So, what sort of tips are we talking about?

The tips can be broken down into four main areas:-

1. Ad placement and design
2. Identification of niche markets
3. Volume
4. Traffic

Let’s discuss each one briefly.

Ad placement and design - The best position for your ads is within the top section of the page. You should change the coloring of the ads to blend in with your website. You will get best results by using blue for the title of the ad so that it looks like a normal link, and use black for both the text and the URL. Make sure that the ads do not have borders around them, so that they look as much like a normal part of your webpage as is possible.

Identification of niche markets - Everyone hears about the keywords which produce clicks for $40 and $50 each, and many people attempt to build web sites which will attract adverts for these keywords. However is very difficult to attract visitors who will produce clicks for these keywords, so you a much better off spending time to identify markets where there are not many competing web sites, but where the value of the clicks would make it profitable for you.

Volume - By volume I mean the number at all pages that you have indexed in the various search engines. Simple mathematics will tell you that if you only have 20 pages which indexed you are unlikely to make as much as if you have 20,000 pages indexed. This does not mean that you need to build sites with 20,000 pages as an alternative you could build 100 sites with 200 pages each. Notice, also that word “indexed”. It does you no good if you have websites on your server which are not indexed in any of the search engines – if no-one can find your sites, you are unlikely to get clicks on your Google Adsense ads.

The people who are learning significant amounts of money with Google Adsense have many web sites. Most of them use software tools to produce their websites because producing many websites by hand is just too time-consuming. A great number of the tools currently on the market, produce junk websites that give no real benefit to the visitor. You will be more successful with a software tool which produces a quality website that will provide a benefit to the visitor. Newer tools on the market, such as my own Website Article Wizard, will produce quality content filled websites quickly and easily, which will be as good, if not better, than hand-created sites.

Traffic - No matter how many web sites you have you'll earn nothing from Google ad sense if there is no traffic coming to your web sites. With no visitors, you have no one who will click on your ads, and, without clicks, you will not earn anything. This means that in addition to building your web sites filled with content, you will need to spend some time getting links to the web sites so that the web sites will achieve rankings in the search engines.

If you follow these simple procedures, you will be able to build web sites that will earn income from Google Adsense. Some of these procedures are time consuming, and there are many tools which can help you to speed up either the web site creation and the link building process, but there is nothing stopping you doing all these procedures manually if you are a tight budget.

Everything that I have told you is just common sense, and that’s the real secret to earning money with Google Adsense - you only need apply common sense and effort to be successful.

Whilst I agree with David about much of what he says - I am still wary about the auto-generated content after Google dumped many duplicate content sites and people's income dropped dramatically.

My preference is for good sites, well written that provide useful information. I think that there will always be a place for such sites to make money.

Thanks Jen,

Personally I hate those types of websites who are really out to make a quick buck or two.

Slow down, PPC is going nowhere.
