Making Money from Your Website with Google AdSense

Google AdSense is the Google program where you can host pay-per-click ads on your Website. When someone clicks an ad, you earn money. Simple as that.

Is it really as easy to make money with Google AdSense as many would lead you to believe? Now that I've become heavily involved with managing Google AdSense programs for my clients, I can see it's not all play and no work.

Unfortunately, a lot of people bought into the idea that there was a lot of easy money to be made and they are now finding out they aren't making nearly as much as they thought they would. Additionally, Google has a lot of prohibited practices when it comes to AdSense, and too many Webmasters are finding out they violated Google's policies after the fact - often because they never bothered to read the AdSense policies in the first place.

Webmasters must not only comply with AdSense policies, but their Websites must also comply with Google's webmaster policies.

Prerequisites for Making Money with AdSense
To make money with Google AdSense you need plenty of traffic coming in to your site or there won't be anyone to click the ads. Website promotion techniques, especially search engine optimization and article marketing will bring more traffic to your site. You also need to have content that will attract the ads with the highest Pay Per Click (PPC) rate that are relevant to that content. Then, you need to lay out your web pages so the ads blend in with your site. Studies have revealed that people who visit sites that contain ads that use colors that are not in harmony with the actual Web site tend to develop "ad blindness". Meaning no matter how much traffic comes into your site, chances are no one will click the ads because they'll be ignoring them. If no one clicks, you make nothing.

Dealing with Competitors' Advertisements

If you offer products or services on your Website, the first thing you'll notice when you begin hosting PPC ads is that many of the ads are coming from your competitors. Therefore, you'll want to put ads on pages that aren't earning you any money, or do like I did and not put ads on your site until you're so busy anyway you'd rather make a few dollars off of your competitors than to continue turning business away with nothing to show for it.

Google AdSense allows you to specify up to 200 URLs for sites you want to bar from placing ads on your pages. The problem is that most times you won't know the competitors are out there until their ads appear.

Google Money Making Ad Options
Google offers three ways to make money from them:

* Google AdSense for Content - A variety of size and shape ads for placing in your content are available. These can be text or image ads or both - you specify what you'll allow. Ad units are full ads. Link units are simply a strip of text links that your visitors might want to click. Google allows you to put up to 3 Ad Units and 1 Link unit on each page of your Web site, provided you follow its policies - both for AdSense and for Webmasters.
* Google AdSense for Search - This places a search box on your Web site. When a user enters a term and conducts a search, a search results page opens, that hosts more pay-per-click ads. You can customize the color scheme of the search results page to harmonize with your web site.
* Google Referrals - Here you make money by referring visitors to use a Google product, like AdSense, AdWords, the Google Toolbar and other Google software. Just like Google AdSense for Content and AdSense for Search, Google generates the code that you paste into the desired location on your web page. You can choose from a wide variety of buttons and text links of different colors. As an example of how Google Referrals works, if someone goes to your site and clicks the link and signs up for an AdSense account, when that person earns a $100 from Google AdSense and receives a payout from Google, you'll also receive $100 for referring them. This is a great idea to me, because you can be the world's worst Google AdSense advertiser, but if an ad dynamo happens to visit your site and uses your referral link, you can make money anyway!

Google AdSense Payments

Google will not issue an AdSense payment until your earnings exceed $100. Unfortunately, there are loads of Google AdSense Forum entries about website operators who accumulated $90 or more in click through earnings only to get banned from Google and not get paid anything at all before they ever reached $100. This may be because Google doesn't take a close look to see if you're complying with their guidelines until it comes time to pay you. So yes, there's a lot more to the story than meets the eye.

Other Programs Besides AdSense

Yahoo and MSN have similar programs, although those programs aren't as well-developed as Google AdSense and there aren't as many available advertisers to display ads on your site. The fundamentals for making money are the same: You still need plenty of traffic, you still need high-paying ads, and you still need to design your site to harmonize with the ads to get people to click.

Making Money From Your Blog Or Ezine

"How is my blog/ezine going to make me money?" Consider both to be very cheap, 24/7 sales employees that take very little time to maintain. Think how much time and money you spend to traditionally attract a new prospect and then the investment to convert them to a client. This is too cheap not to do.

Businesses hire PR firms to gain exposure to their brand. In a marketing world where our clients have ultimate control over what messages they will notice, blogs and ezines capture the attention of an elusive but profitable client - the fanatic or fan. Additionally, SEO pros will share that inbound links (someone clicking from your blog to your website) definitely help with your search ranking. When you speak regularly to someone that's remotely interested in what you have to say, you are given a golden opportunity to connect with them through this impersonal medium called the Internet. With so much information available to potential buyers, you need to make a connection to stand out.

Which should I use, a blog or an ezine? My answer is both since the blog is passive - readers finding you (push marketing) and the ezine active - readers requesting you (pull marketing). Sometimes even these two aren't enough. Multiple blogs on different market segments of your business will work best. Blog readers like niches. Only those who blog to entertain can really get away with random brain-dumping. If you have a blogging darkside, have a separate blog with the remotest connection to your business. Yes - you should still connect back to your business site since that reader may find your ranting refreshing and may seek to patronize you because of it.

Purpose Comes First: Decide your goal for each and stick to it. Nothing kills readership like ever-changing messages. Blogs should focus on something of value - usually information or entertainment.

Delete! Unsubscribe! Common Boo-Boos Ezines should be client conversion focused. People subscribe to them to gain information about what you have or know. The difference from a blog is to make a personal connection with information and sales pitches.

Blunder 1 - Pitch them to death! Many ezines are hard core sales vehicles (push marketing). You are barraged with pitch after pitch forcing you to search just to find a link to their website with a lame article buried amongst more pitches.

Blunder 2 - Infrequency. People like their information regularly and delivered the same time each week or month. Quarterly isn't worth the effort, by the way. You need to be top-of-mind when they discover the need for what you offer.

Blunder 3 - Dull Content. If you can't write with interest please do your business a favor and let anyone else in your company write it. Sadly, the people who write boring stuff usually think it's great. This also goes for humor: if you often need to explain it's too vague for an ezine. Though it could be perfect for an esoteric blog.

Money Tree Marketing is an information blog that occasionally has some wry humor, but always focuses on marketing information. My weekly ezine has a high value article for my clients, a greater personal connection and first-releases of my products, seminars and consulting openings. If you would like to take a look at a simple EZine format that works subscribe below.

Making Money on the Web

When internet marketing first came about no one honestly understood the success that it could hold. Amazon was one of the first companies to believe that using a force of people to drive traffic to their website would increase their overall sales. Even Amazon could not believe the sensation that happened from this decision.

Since that time Internet marketing has caught on completely and hundreds if not thousands of people have benefited from making money on the web. Never before was it so easy to make a decent living without leaving your own home.

There is a downside to making money on the web, the main problem is in all honesty finding the perfect program that is willing to offer extensive support to their members along with a great product. Many people and companies have taken advantage of people because they know one thing, if a person does not have a written plan laid out before them then they will not complete the needed tasks.

There have been thousands of people who claimed that they bought a program that promised great wealth but never expectedthe proper support.
In order to be successful you have to be totally driven in order to reach your goalso. Many other programs offer websites but advise that you need to find and sell your products, others want you to make your website and they will let you sell their product but they all stop in telling you what is required to do so.

There is a program though that offers a huge help than many other online businesses, never before has a program offered a true all in one package with unheralded support for their members coupled with the ability to make a decent living by working at home.

In today’s marketing globe it is truly hard to find a program like the MaxPro System. The Max Pro System was developed by Darren Salkheld using the Complete Opposite Approach which is why it has become so successful. You will no longer be following other internet marketing guru’s line of attack to being a successful marketer. Many entrepreneurs who were laughed at because their ideas were different are now very successful.

Darren’s system can be compared to the old employee corporate company affiliation. In older times it was frowned upon to rock the boat or state things were wrong within the company you worked for. Employers did not want to hear what their employees thought or what they had to say. Today this is almost the total opposite; if you are not innovative and are willing to give your two cents then you will never move ahead in life.

The MaxPro System will not only give you a step by step guide but they will give you unheralded support for your online success. If you want to become one of the new innovators that believe you have landed on the best opportunity then you in fact need to try the MaxPro System.
