Unlike the internet advertisements of old (largely banner ads), you earn money each and every time your site visitors click on a Google AdSense ad that is placed on or within your site. They do not have to purchase something in order for you to earn a commission.
As long as they click on one of your ads, Google will pay you.
You no longer have to worry about busy, distracting, (sometimes obnoxious) banner ads crowding up your site. Google AdSense ads are often text ads, which are proven to have a much higher click-thru rate than banner ads.
And in fact, there is much more to it. Google AdSense makes making money easy!
Tips for AdSense Success
Let’s break it down a bit more with these tips for AdSense success.
Build a content driven site with a professional look, tone and feel.
It’s important to note that Google does NOT accept sites that are created using free domains, so be sure to register a unique domain through a reputable service.
Your site should include valuable content.
Google will quickly recognize if your site is not legitimate, so be sure that your business is up and running to prove you are not just loading ads into your site to make money.
Work on driving traffic to your site.
Proper SEO techniques and keywords are absolutely critical when trying to top search engines. If you aren’t familiar with this process, be sure to learn more. It will serve you well moving forward.
Set up your Google AdSense account.
As previously noted, Google makes the entire process extremely user-friendly. They will walk you through the registration process and get you started with customizing and placing ads on your site in no time.
Network! Network! Network!
Nothing is better than word of mouth, so reach out to friends, family, peers, and colleagues to spread the word about your site.
The more people who visit, the more people who will click on ads… and the more money you will make!
Your success depends on successful SEO
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is important for your site and it is important for your ads. Why? Because SEO is how you get users to your site. Without it, how will they find you? And, so goes your traffic, so goes your click-thru rate. The higher the volume of traffic, the higher the click-thru rate for your site. One truly is dependent upon the other.
Even with these potential downfalls, Google AdSense can be an extremely lucrative venture for your business. You just have to make sure you are using it correctly and being careful not to fall into any of the traps mentioned here.
