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.

What is Google Adsense and How do You Make Money With it?

Adsense is an advertisment program ran by Google. To make money from adsense, you have to put a javascript code from your adsense account into your blog or site. The code would generate an ad on the section of your blog you put it i.e. if you put the code in your header, it would generate an ad at your header. If someone clicks on the ad, Google would give you some money.

Making money with Google Adsense seems easy right? You just get a blog, slap adsense on the blog, then you start making money when someone clicks your ad. Also, if you read my post on make money posting links on Google, the site also make it look easy. But the problem with this is where will you get someone to click your ad. Google would ban you if you click your ad. There are many people that Google have banned from their first day on being accepted into the adsense program because they were clicking their ad. Most of them were just experimenting. They wanted to know if their ad is working, if someone clicks on it. They clicked on their ad multiple times and they got that dreaded email from Google that their account have been banned. Also don’t tell people to click on your adsense’s ad.

To get people to visit your site and become potential ads clickers, you have to either be social active or have good search engine ranking. Being social active means that you would drive people (traffic) to your blog by commenting on other people’s blog, joining forums, joining social media sites such as digg, reddit, delicious, twitter etc. To have a good search engine ranking, you should have optimize your blog either off site and on site. This is called SEOing your site for adsense.

You can do both ways to get traffic to your site if you can. But if you don’t have time, you should try to improve your rank on search engines because those are the ones that click on ads because they want something such as looking for the answer for a question or looking for how to get something. Social traffic don’t click on ads. They are just looking for you to return to their site and nothing else. If you do a good job blending your adsense’s ad, your might get some clicks from social traffic.

The amount you can make on adsense depends on your keywords. Some keywords pay better than others. For instance, if your niche is credit, the you can make about $8 for one click for the keyword credit report. If your niche is make money online, you can make about $3 with the keyword, ways to make money online. This is what you can make if you site is very well targeted for that niche. Of course, you can earn less than that. You can get clicks that would give you $0.01.

I don’t know how true is this, but I heard Google now requires new applicants to have a site that is 6 months old with content before you can get accepted into their adsense program and make money with google.

I was checking my email today when I saw a text ad about how to make money posting links on Google. I was curious so I clicked on the ad to see what the site has to offer. The site post title was “How I Started Making $6,700 a Month by Working from Home Online.” That amount is impressive, if it was true.

In the post, the owner of the site wrote about those stories that the person when from a 9-5 job to start making money online from their home. He was laid off from his job, and he decided to search for how to make money online. He found two opportunities and now he is making between $5,000 and $8,000 a month by working at home from Google. What attracted me was a picture of his old and new cars.

He went from an wrecked old car to a new Porsche. This is an improvement in life if his story is true. He also showed an adsense check of about $6,000 that Google sent to him. I am an internet marketer and I don’t know how this works i.e. you would post links on Google and they send a check to you.

To post links on Google, you need to use adwords. You would for any click on your ads on Google. Google then splits the amount your pay per click between themselves and the people displaying your ads. Google pays those people displaying their ads through adsense. This means there is a discrepancy with the ads title. The ad should have said make money posting links for Google — and not ON Google.

After 1 week, I saw another ad of a student that makes money posting links on Google. Both programs are the same. The program that both ads are promoting are Google Home Business Kit and Google Marketing Kit. The Home business kit is free to try, but you would have to pay for $1.99 S & H. The Marketing Kit is also free to try, but cost $3 for S & H. I think the free period is for one month, after one month you would be charged a certain amount

If you want to make money with Google, you need to have your own site or blog. After you have created one, then you apply to Google Adsense to get a publisher id. After you have been approved, you can put those links on your blog. If somebody click on the ad, you would be paid a certain amount of money. Depending on your preference, you can choose to receive your commission to be deposited in your bank or you can choose to receive an check.

Don’t let the ads that say “make money posting links on Google” deceive you. It’s not as easy as most of them make it seem nor would you be doing exactly what most of them try to make you think you would be doing in order to earn money from Google.
