What Is Google AdSense And Why Should You Use It?
You may have heard of it and you may know that it is a way of making money, but what exactly is AdSense?
To first understand what AdSense is, you will need to read a quick summary on AdWords.
Google has a program for advertisers called AdWords. This program offers website owners to advertise by creating a small or large ad (text or image) and then displaying it on participating websites and Google. This creates a huge opportunity to increase visitors for a website and business because the ad is placed all over the internet and Google. Advertisers can set a budget and they are charged each time someone clicks on their ad. It is a cost effective way to generate targeted traffic to a website and is also a quick way to gain traffic.
So now what is Google AdSense?
Google has another program that is called AdSense and this allows website owners to publish advertisements on their blog/website. It is 100% free and is very easy to sign up for. Once you create an account, you will be able to choose from a wide variety of ads that can be placed on your blog/website. Each ad can be customized and setup to match your site layout and niche. Once you have advertisements on your website, you will earn money for each click that your ads receive. The amount per click depends on the type of ad, amount the advertiser is paying per click, keywords, and the category. You can earn cents and all the way up to dollars for each click.
Why choose Google AdSense?
For me personally, Google AdSense has always been one of my top contributors for earning money online. If you visit other “make money online” blogs, most of them will talk about AdSense and how you should use it. This is because it actually DOES work and it has been proven to work for many bloggers and website owners. Not only is it 100% FREE to sign up for, but it is very simple to use and setup. You can get started right away and there is also a ton of advanced techniques that you can learn to help increase earnings. It is not an overnight success but with hard work and passion for your blog/website, then you can generate a great amount of money with AdSense. You can earn a few extra dollars per month or even replace your day job earnings with AdSense.
