What is AdSense?
AdSense, a program by Google, offers a way for publishers under the Google Network to earn revenue in a flexible, hassle-free way. You might have seen AdSense earnings ad on thousands of websites showing thousands of earnings per month. These ads might give you an idea that earning online is very easy via AdSense and can be done by almost anybody without doing much work. However, the truth is completely different from what it looks like.
It takes months of hard work to achieve AdSense earning and there is no legal way to earn thousands of dollars per month. Don’t worry, it sounds hard at first but once you know your way around AdSense, it’s just a matter of time and hard work that will lead you to your desired AdSense earnings. Here, you will get an idea about how much you can actually earn from AdSense and how much it is possible to earn. An AdSense user usually receives $0.50 for each click on average. This is what most of the AdSense publishers earn using this advertisement placement program. You need a large number of traffic visiting your site in order to make a decent amount of money using AdSense. So, in short, AdSense works as a web traffic to money converter.
How AdSense works
Some people believe that a decent number of web traffic is good enough to make considerable amounts of money. However, it’s not possible as all the people who visit your site will not click on ads. Some people completely ignore them while some goes unnoticed. So, only a small number of that web traffic ends up clicking on them. Sometimes, less than 2% of the people who visits your website click on your displayed ads. This can be improved by planning the position of the ads, the contents of your website and the theme of the website.
Now, the first thing you should know before getting started with AdSense is, how much traffic do you need to earn a target amount of earnings. If you are trying to earn $500 per month based on the $0.50 per click earning, you will need 700 visitors per day and 21,000 visitors per month with a click through rate of around 5%. However, you can earn almost the same amount of money with half the visitors if you can maintain offering high quality content to your visitors and also get relevant AdSense ads offering $1.00 per click.
Before you start dreaming of such earnings, you should know that obtaining this number of web traffic in your website can take more than 6 months. You have to work hard for months and you might not see any result in the first 2-3 months. Working hard for 6 months without seeing any result can get difficult so it is very important to have patience for earning money with Google AdSense. Sometimes you might not earn even after working hard on the website because of the subject your website or because you didn’t follow some basic rules of AdSense. Some of these basic rules are: not clicking on your own ads, asking people to click on your ads, ad location, website promotion, etc.
To make a successful partnership with Google, the first thing you can do is to read the program policies of AdSense program carefully and get completely familiarized with it. The first thing that you should avoid when using AdSense is clicking your own Google ads. Even if you want to know about an advertiser’s website appearing on the ads, you can just copy the link and place it directly on address bar to avoid clicking on it.
Don’t use illegal ways
Some people ask people directly or indirectly to click on their Google ads. It is strictly prohibited by Google and it is not allowed to ask people directly, indirectly, using third party websites or via email. It can end your partnership with AdSense so make sure you are not using illegal way to get traffic. Users should only click on ads because they are interested on the advertised contents. Even placing the ads deceptively to get accidental clicks is also not allowed.
Publishers will choose the topic they want to show in their website and will be responsible for the contents even if they are provided by someone else. However, there are content guidelines to follow which doesn’t support posting mature, hateful or violent content. Copying contents from other websites is also not a good idea as Google want publishers to publish unique and relevant content. These are some basics you should know before getting started with AdSense. We discussed the basics in short here but we are going to talk more about these guidelines and ways to make the best out of AdSense in the upcoming chapters so keep reading.
