So what pays you money without you paying a cent? Hint: Google. Extra income can be made using AdSense for your business. This article will run through what AdSense is, how your small business website can use AdSense to make money by promoting businesses/services relevant to your business and also offer some inside secrets to get the most from AdSense to supplement your online business earnings. That’s right, Google can make you money.
So lets get started:
What is AdSense?
In very basic terms AdSense is a software application from Google that allows you to put code on your website that creates ads. These ads are chosen by Google based on your website content and visitors. For instance if you have a fishing blog website and you put AdSense on there then Google will look through fishing websites who have signed with their AdSense program. Google then places these fishing business ads on your website.
How Do You Earn Money Using AdSense?
AdSense can be great for your business in supplementing your income with no outlay. Every time someone clicks the ads on your website you get a commission. People will click ads when they don’t find the information on your site/blog but see an ad that is giving them the info they want. Easy right!
Who Should Use AdSense?
Anyone can use AdSense and start earning money straight away. I know people who earn $10k a month from AdSense! Of course the more websites you have displaying ads the more chance you are of someone clicking your ads. Businesses and individuals who use blogging tend to do very well with AdSense.
AdSense Business Rules
Caution: not everyone will get approved to use AdSense. If your online business is adult related or is selling guns, liquor or tobacco then you will not be approved. Make sure you are a good Google AdSense citizen and:
– Do not click on your own ads
– Do not get friends or family to click your ads
– Make sure you don’t have multiple domains with the same content.
AdSense for Business Inside Tricks
Make sure you are getting plenty of traffic to your business website before you monetize i.e. put AdSense on there. There’s no point having relevant ads for people to click if no one is visiting your website. Getting traffic to your website or blog takes time and concerted and consistent effort to achieve search engine optimisation.
If you want AdSense to work for your business online marketing then ditch the default colours and use colours that are the same as your website background. Use 336 x 280 size ads. These are optimum for clicking.
Make sure your website or blog sticks to the main topic of the site. For example if it is all about weight loss then just write content on weight loss. This will ensure that only relevant ads appear. And make sure you post content or blog regularly to build credibility.
