How to Make Income Displaying Ads with Google Adsense
Updated: Mar 10, 2021
There are countless ways to create money with advertising, but the most common way among content creators is through google. Google Adsense has been around since nearly the beginning of the internet's birth. In addition, while having a website is the optimal way to make the most of Adsense, it is not the only way. This post will show you how to get started.
Content and a Lot of Traffic
Generating income with Google Adsense is not an entirely passive enterprise if you don't have suitable content. In this case, you'll have to create some. And to generate sufficient traffic, that content needs to be solid, if not superb. Your content not only needs to attract new visitors every day, but bring them back as well. Loyal, repetitive visitors is the key to consistently growing revenue.
Websites aren't the only form of content that would work well with Google Adsense. Other forms of content that might be easier to build if you don't already have them include discussion boards, blogs, news sites, niche social networks, youtube videos, online tools, forums and much more. All these types of content easily allow you to find a layout suitable for displaying Google Adsense Ads.
Types of ad units
Google allows different ways to display their ads. And this will largely depend on the layout of your site and your personal preferences. The ads have different styles. Some of them are simple text-based ads. Others are image ads and even video ads.
When designing the layout of your ads, make sure they fit nicely with your content in an unobtrusive way. The experience of your visitors is very important. You don't want them to be overwhelmed with too many ads and not enough content to keep them engaged. Google analytics is a helpful tool in deciding how to display your ads and on which pages.
AdSense Custom Search Ads.
A more recent addition to Adsense's arsenal is the Custom Search function. By utilizing this search bar on your site, your users will not only be able to find content on your site more easily, but they will also be able to see ads for comparable content- thereby maximizing your profit. Of course, this will work better for those of you with lots of pages of content, like on a blog or forum.
Keep in mind, Adsense Custom Search may require you to apply so that you can use this great function on your site to start making money.
Make money with Google AdSense on YouTube.
As mentioned earlier, websites aren't the only way to make money with Google AdSense. There are many other options including using Youtube. Perhaps writing isn't your forte, then you should consider making a video.
It's easy to get started. You just need to create a YouTube channel in which you can publish unique videos. Within the settings, simply 'turn on' monetization. You will then be led through a process that will enable you to connect your youtube channel with your Adsense account.
Just as with a website, your video content needs to be superb in order to attract viewers from the horrendous competition on there. Youtube has content for literally anything you can think of, so maybe the key isn't about creating something fresh. Instead make your content better.
