Are you where you want to be financially in your life right now? I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess not. Do you have a bunch of extra spending money laying around? Again, I will assume that’s a big fat NO.

However, I bet you do have a television and I also bet you watch TV an average of at least one hour every day. Studies show that the average American watches about 40 hours of TV every week. That is like having a 2nd full time job where you do nothing but sit on your butt and stare at a screen.

Let’s just say you are on the super low end of what most people watch and put your TV time at just one hour each day. That is still 365 hours every year that you are wasting on something that does absolutely nothing for you. That is the equivalent of more than 2 months working at a full time job.

Now, imagine if you started your own online home business and used those same hours working on it instead!

You could be earning a very solid extra income from your business, which would give you the peace of mind that comes with not having to worry about money anymore. You could take that long overdue vacation or buy that new car, send your kids to college, save for retirement, or whatever else you want to do with the money.

Doesn’t that sound a heck of a lot better than sitting on the couch watching TV every night? It sure does to me!

So, here are the steps you need to take right now:

1) Turn off your TV. And promise yourself not to watch it anymore, or at least watch it a lot less.

2) Start your own online home business. Click here for our top recommended opportunity.

3) Focus solely on building your business every day during the hours that you used to watch TV.

4) Keep at it. You aren’t going to see any results overnight. It takes some time to build any real business, online or offline.

5) Enjoy all that extra money that you now have!

That’s all there is to it. I mean come on, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that using the time you waste watching TV on something productive — like building a home business — is a much more effective use of your time!

Everyone’s dream job is to work for Google, right? Well, unless you are super highly educated, incredibly skilled, very lucky, and also know someone that can help you get hired there; it’s probably not going to happen. But there is a way to get paid by Google while working from home. It’s called Adsense. And yes you can earn money online with it — A lot actually!

Is this something you might be interested in learning more about? Let’s see… Have you recently asked yourself, “where can I find a job” or “what are some ways to make money” or “how do I start a home business” or any other question similar to those? If so, this information is for you!

What is Google Adsense?

It is a program that enables website owners to automatically serve text, image, video, and rich media ads on their sites. The ads are targeted based on the sites content so visitors are only seeing ads for things they might be interested in. Google uses its internet search technology to serve advertisements based on your websites content, the visitor’s geographical location, and some other factors. They generate revenue on a pay-per-click basis. Basically you get paid every time a visitor clicks on an advertisement displayed on your website.

Before you do anything, you need to get a Google Adsense account. It’s free and fairly easy to sign up so you shouldn’t have any problems with that. Then, you just need to put the code on your site. I won’t go into detail about how to do that because there are plenty of free plugins that will do it for you if you have a blog. If you don’t that’s fine, there’s tons of free information readily available all over the internet that will teach you how to add the code to your site.

How to make money with Adsense?

After you have an account and learned how to put the code on your site/blog, it’s time to actually start earning money online from this simple program. The only real way to do that is with content.

You need content and lots of it. But not just any content. It MUST be high quality and 100% original. Stealing other people’s content or using a bunch of spun crap will not get you anywhere. In fact, doing that will likely get you banned. On top of that the content needs to be focused around a niche market. You will need to do keyword research on a topic (niche) you are interested in and know a lot about, then build a blog around that topic.

Once you have done that it’s time to start writing. You need to write and write and write some more. Keep on writing new content every day for weeks, months, or even years. Publish every bit of knowledge you have about the subject and everything related to it. When you run out of things to say then start researching more related topics that you could write about. Just keep writing and publishing content.

For example, if you are a dog enthusiast and/or dog trainer, or know a lot about dogs in general, then you could start a blog about dogs. Teach people everything there is to know about every topic you can think of related to dogs. If you get to the point where you don’t know what else to say then do some research to find what sorts of questions people have about dogs, then write about that. If you don’t know that answer search until you find it and keep writing.

Try to become the world’s leading authority site on your niche if you possibly can. Even if you can’t just keep writing more high quality content until enough people take notice. Eventually you will build up a following. As your content builds up over time so will your rankings, traffic, subscribers, and so on. That will directly lead to more Adsense clicks and more money for you!

It will be slow going at first and you might feel like you are wasting your time getting nowhere. Trust me, just keep going. It’s not going to happen overnight but you are definitely getting somewhere with each article/post you write. If you do this correctly, there will come a time when your earnings start increasing every month and might even get to a point where you are making more money than anyone you know.

At this point you can drastically slow down on the writing. You might not even have to do anymore work at all. The passive residual income will be coming in daily with very little to no extra work on your part. And all that writing you did for so long without getting much in return will be more than worth it!

Also, be sure that you NEVER click on the Adsense ads on your own website! That means not even once, ever. And don’t tell any of your friends or family to click on your ads either. Don’t do anything to try and game their system. Doing so will get you banned in no time and they won’t let you back in. It’s not worth trying. You will lose a lot more money in the long run than you will make by using sneaky tactics to increase your income.

Once you have just about exhausted all the writing you can possibly do for one site in one niche, and built it up to hundreds (or thousands) of pages of original content, high rankings, tons of traffic, subscribers, great Adsense earnings, and everything else then you can do the same thing with another site. Just rinse and repeat the same thing you did with the first one. You can do it over and over again with many sites if you want.

And that, my friend, is how to make money from Google! Find a topic you know a lot about that other people also want to know more about, build a blog about it, and get to writing.

The theme I am using on my blog right now is free. Since it is free, it means that I have to customize it myself. I didn’t like how the header was looking because it had my blog tagline overlapping with my blog title.

I had to change it for 2 reasons. I didn’t like it and I had to brand myself.  I couldn’t figure out how to change, but a wordpress designer told me what I should do.

How Can You Change Your Blog Header

You need to look at the source code of your blog from your browser. You have to go to your homepage. Right click on any place on the screen (not on any link). Go to View Page Source. When the source code opens, hold Ctrl + F. This will bring the find box. You want to look for the location of the header code. In the find box, type in body. It would take you to the body code i.e. <body>

The next line in the body area is the header. In my case, it was

<div id="ja-mainwrapper">

I downloaded my theme to my pc. I went to the images folder (…../theme/images). I looked for the word “mainwrapper”. I noticed on an image that had a blue background like my header and it was called main wrap. So I decided to rename my new header image as main wrap and deleted the old image. I uploaded the theme back to my wordpress.

Then I went to my header.php. I commented out the title and the tagline. I did this by using  <!–   –>. The space in between the dashes is where the text I want to comment goes into.

I wrote a post that I said I got indexed in Google in 20 minutes after publishing the post. I used ping services. Ping services is a way by which your blog tells servers that you have made a new post. This would help to keep your blog fresh on search engines. The Ping services I used were

If you are reading this blog, this means that you know about Google search. In the blogosphere, most bloggers refer to Google as the best search engine to get traffic.

How can You get Google to index Your site Quickly? That is easy. it is done in two ways

1. Submit Your URL to Google :- When submitting, use the full URL i.e. in my case I would submit http://www.blogsnd.com. In the content form, write the description of your site. The description is the summary of your site. You should put your keywords in the description. I wrote “Blog with Make Money Online skill”. From the text written on the page, Google doesn’t guarantee that every site would be indexed. Don’t be worried, I think Google indexes every blog. The sites not indexed should be gambling, adult or harmful sites.

2. Include a Sitemap of Your Blog :- A sitemap shows the organization of the pages on your blog on a web page. It helps search engine bots and people to navigate your site easily. You can have a look at my sitemap. To make your site map, you can go to sitemap generator to make your sitemap. It is free for up to 500 pages. If your blog is hosted on wordpress, you can use a plugin to generate your sitemap. I use the Google XML Sitemap Plugin. Follow the instructions on the installation tab to install the plugin. Then login into Google Webmaster (you need to have a Google account, it is free). Add your blog’s URL at the form where you see Add Site. Then click on sitemap and submit your sitemap. Submitting your sitemap  also helps Google to show you how it sees your blog. You can see the keywords people searched for on Google’s search engine that brought them to your site.
