Building Successful Google AdSense Blog
Remember the first time you build your first Google AdSense blog. The definition of a Google AdSense blog is one of those money making blogs which derives its main revenue from AdSense clicks.
Most of us envisioned raking in lorry loads of money per month by building money making blogs merely with incorporating Google AdSense into the main page, the post and money will come racing in. Sadly, hard reality sets in when they see their AdSense accounts displaying 5 cents and the most 20 cents per click. Nothing to shout about the click through rate; only 1%. This is the stage where the new blogger comes to term with the harsh reality of trying to make money from blogging. Duration in reaching this stage: at least 6 treacherous months.
As a result, is Google AdSense still the way to go?
The answer depends on yourself. You see, in order to effectively monetize a Google AdSense blog, you need significant amount of traffic. Mind you, I'm not talking about just any traffic!
Numerous bloggers claim to be expert in Social Media Marketing like Twittering and they spend ample time writing articles along with submitting them to the popular Social Bookmarking sites like Squidoo and Digg all in the divine quest to drive traffics to their blog. While this may increase targeted traffic to a blog, the idea rarely translates into clicks their AdSense ads.
Therefore, if you're one of those smart bloggers who's still chasing traffic from Social Media sites and wondering why your Google AdSense account is neigh, I just have to share with you on the hard reality. People who mingle in Social networks are too 'Net savvy and they also don't click ads. They read blogs purely for entertainment rather than for the information that comes from the blog. It all depends really what are the agendas in the mind of these Social visitors. The chances are, they won't find anything worthwhile to click in your AdSense.
Similarly, just ask yourself when is the last time you lobbied to your friends in Facebook to take a look into your new blog post. On and off, your effort may successfully drive a sudden surge in traffics to them. But do you see any 'Ka-ching' in your AdSense account? I don't know about you but I'm usually disappointed.

On the other hand, if I was surfing to a site trying to find 'How To Be A Successful Online Entrepreneur' and then clicked on the same advertising, chances are the webmaster this time might not have received the maximum payout for that particular click.
