How to Make Money Online: Maximizing Your Google AdSense Estimated Income

From the last article written about How to Make Money Online with Your Google AdSense Account, this is the continuation. With this new episode of my article, I’ll be sharing with you some tips and advices on how to start your campaign with your Google AdSense Account and start earning. Before you can monetize your Google AdSense Account, you should have your own website where you can begin and post your ads.”

Before you even begin your site, make sure you’ve come up with a topic that you feel you know plenty about. That way it will be easiest to write a lot of content. The more content you have, the better chance you have getting accepted into the program. Also, the more content and traffic the greater the earning potentials would be.If you want to make a lot of money, prepare to write a lot of content and learn how to market your site. Don’t expect to throw up a 10 page site and make $1,000 per month. That’s unrealistic. Now let’s talk about building your website.


Creating Your Site

Get a domain (greengeek420.com) and then sign up for a web host and build your pages. I highly recommend using WordPress to create your site because you just pick a theme and your site is up and running. Once you have selected your theme, you can add AdSense ads by either using a free AdSense plugin or you can use the WordPress Text widget to easily add ads to your sidebar.

How to Join AdSense

Once you have 20-30 pages on your site, go to http://adsense.google.com to apply. When you are accepted, simply copy and paste the provided HTML code into any page that you’d like to show the ads. You can opt to display text ads, image ads, or a combination of both. It’s up to you.

You can either display the ads vertically alongside the page like Google does or in a banner-like formation horizontally across your pages. You can even customize the colors to match your site’s theme.

Tips on Succeeding With AdSense:

  • Build Traffic
    You’re not going to make anything with your Google Adsense Account if you don’t have enough traffic. You still need to work on driving more traffic to your website.

  • Do Some Experimentation With Your Designs
    Test ad sizes, images vs. text, play around with colors, you name it. I personally like to have my ads match the background of my site so they blend more. Some people prefer to make their ads stand out by using bold/contrasting colors, but that never worked well for me. I think it’s because they look so much like ads.

    If you have knowledge in HTML programming, you can modify how you would like to appear those ads in your website through embedding the AdSense codes right into the articles of your webpage by adding these codes:
    <table align=”right” width=”300>
    <tr>
    <td>Your Google AdSense Codes goes here…</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    You can change the width of the table to suit your needs, just remember that it needs to be wide enough to fit whatever AdSense code you selected. You can also switch the alignment by changing the align attribute from “left” to “right.”
  • Create Your Customized Channel

    Channels allow you to see what units are working best. So if you are adding an AdSense unit to your header, you should create a channel called (name it Header, for example) so you can track its performance in your reports. I think it’s important to maximize your click through rate (CTR) so you can attract more advertisers (just my opinion based on logic). So I remove channels/units that perform significantly lower than others. Advertisers want to advertise on sites that will give them the most clicks, right? So it makes sense to optimize your account’s CTR as much as you can.

    When you are creating a new ad unit, you are presented the option of creating a custom channel on the first screen. Set Units to “Targeted”. When you target your custom channel units, you make them available to Placement advertisers who may want to advertise on your site directly. These advertisers pay more so you earn more per click.

    Just click “My Ads” from your account, then select “Custom Channels”. Click the channel you want to target and click the box for targeting as illustrated at image 2.
