This is the first of many “How To” articles that will address a variety of ways to “earn money online with” and fill in the blank. In this article, I’ll talk about Google Adsense and how you too can make easy money online.
Well, if you already have a blog or a web-site, Great! If not, you will need one if you wish to earn some easy passive income with Google AdSense ads.
For those who do not have a website or a blog site already, you will be needing one for the purposes of this article. Then, please head on over to my other page: How To Build a Website For Beginners and Newbies. You’ll need to register a domain, host your site, and create your website. Then, you’ll need to decide whether you want a simple and easy small site that will generate passive income after you’ve set it all up, or whether you’re willing to work on your site at least a few hours per week. For the purposes of this article, it really doesn’t matter which you choose because we are only discussing just one of the ways to earn money online – using Google AdSense ads.
OK – You Have a Blog!
Let’s just assume you have a domain, your hosting, and your WordPress site all set up. Let’s also assume that you have at least five to six pages or posts written with some good relevant and unique content. This means that the articles were written by you. The articles have not been copied from anywhere, spun off from anyone else, etc. It has to be original content and it has to be unique. And, seeing that this is all technology driven, the search engines WILL KNOW if you’ve copied or plagiarized. So, please don’t.
Once you have at least five to six pages or posts about your topic or niche that you’ve chosen, now, you can apply for and add the Google AdSense plug-in to your WordPress site. If you’re not familiar with this at all, or if this is complete gibberish to you, please check out my training tutorial on how to set up your Google AdSense account for your WordPress site.
Ok, assuming that you have your Google Adsense blocks all configured on each page of your website, you can now check your website to make sure the ads are running – JUST DON’T CLICK ON THEM!
That’s right – Never click on your own site’s ads as that would be one way to get your Google AdSense account deactivated which, apparently, happens often. Once Google deactivates you, they usually do not allow you to re-activate with them. This is also why, from what I’ve read, you should never really rely on Google AdSense income. Take it when it comes, sure, but hopefully, you will have other ways to earn money online set up as well just in case you’re ever deactivated for whatever reason.
As mentioned, and depending on your earlier decision, you now either have a small site with at least five or six pages of really good content, or a larger blog site. Both have the ability to show Google Ads based on your relevant content.
Obviously, the larger the site, the more pages and posts will have ads showing which, in turn, will increase your traffic and earnings. (Click Here to See My Financial Report with Google AdSense Earnings – Coming Soon.) However, many people still do use the smaller sites built solely to generate AdSense income. They are also referred to as “AdSense Blogs” because they’re pretty simple sites built only to generate AdSense income. They usually do not have affiliate links, but the rich content is enough to generate some traffic and earn an income. In my research, I’ve come across articles and forum comments that talk about earning anywhere from $100 to $300 per month for smaller sites and, of course, much more for larger, more active, sites. In fact, many people earn thousands, never mind hundreds of dollars per month with Google AdSense.
Lather, Rinse, Repeat!
Ok, you’ve built your site, now, add more sites! Just remember, the AdSense sites are built only to generate Google AdSense income. Although you may go and update them from time to time, generally speaking, but if you’ve done some good keyword research to begin with, these sites will need nothing further from you.
So, that’s it in a nutshell. You can build small sites that generate solely Google AdSense income or AdSense income in addition to your affiliate income, and this income will continue on auto-pilot for months, if not years to come.
Now, that’s passive income!
