When I first started out in internet marketing, I had no clue what I was doing. I was thrown in every direction possible on how to make money online. I had never heard of Google Adsense until one day I was reading some posts in an internet marketing forum. I started to hear all the stories about how people were making thousands of dollars a month by just putting some ads on their websites. This sounded to me to be the easiest way to make money online, but there are some tricks to it that you should know about.
The key to success with Adsense is the placing of ads on pages that are receiving high traffic for high demand keywords. The higher the cost-per-click to the advertiser, the more you will receive per click from your site. Obviously, it does not pay to target low cost-per-click keywords and place them on pages that do not receive hits.
With all the people getting online and clicking away everyday, it is no wonder why Google Adsense has become an instant hit.
There are two major, and clever, factors that some successful webmaster and publishers are learning to blend together in order to make money easier using Adsense.
- You have to have a website that gets high traffic. You can simply use the Google Keyword tool to find some excellent keywords in your market. For example, if you wanted to build a fishing site, then put Fishing in the Keyword tool and see what high traffic keywords come up. They can be product keywords, or anything that has to do with fishing. Then you create a mini website that has information on your keyword and as soon as it is ranking in Google, you will start to get traffic and get clicks.
When you are able to create these mini sites in a short amount of time, you can eventually build yourself a virtual real estate empire that will become more valuable every time your adsense clicks keep coming. People are always selling websites on Flippa.com and their only source of income on these site is some adsense revenue.
Google Adsense can be a very profitable source of revenue, but don’t plan on making it your only source of income. Until next time……
