Do People Really Make Money With Google AdSense?
Most people who use Google AdSense to try to make money from their websites or blogs fail. They then wonder if anybody actually makes money online using Google AdSense. The fact is that they do. Here is what they do and you do not do.
The people who succeed with Google AdSense have one very different thing going for them than the people who do not succeed: they understand how Google AdSense works. In this article, I will tell you what the people who understand AdSense know that you don’t know and why they are making money with this program and you are not.
First and foremost, let’s differentiate between two types of people who use Google’s advertising program. The first group is those with massive websites who succeed because of a brand name or “known” personality. These sites get millions of visitors every month and they succeed based on sheer volume, not by using any particular technique. This article is not about them. It is about you, the entrepreneur looking for a way to achieve success as an individual or small company using Google AdSense.
So, why are you not succeeding with this program? First and foremost, AdSense success is based on traffic. You need to have good traffic to your website to be able to earn money.
To generate good traffic, you need to do 4 things.
First, you need to write about things that people are searching for. For example, if you write a page entitled “Why My Weekend Was the Best” because you had a great weekend, nobody is going to find that. Have you ever searched Google for “Why My Weekend Was the Best?”
Second, after choosing words that people search for, you have to optimize them on the page. As an example, let us say that you are writing a review for the Oscar nominated movie Avatar and you name it, “Yet Another Great Movie Enters Theatres.” In this instance, you have picked a popular theme-the movie Avatar-but your title says nothing about it.
Third, and most importantly, you have to generate inbound links to your articles. One way to do this is to use article directories such as this one. Essentially, you need to promote your blog, and your blogs post, in whichever way that you can.
Finally, if you have accomplished the top 3 steps, and are still not making money from AdSense, you need to ensure that AdSense is optimized on the page so that people will actually click your ads. Google provides a nice “heatmap” for this so that you can implement Google ads in such a way that people will click on them.
The above four steps are what distinguishes the AdSense successes from the failures. Now, you know what to do. Which category do you want to be in?
