I started blogging for fun a couple of years back. But I realized that one can make a lot of money onlinewith the blogging content. It is never easy at the beginning and a person has to be rally patient. Since I was new to the whole make money online idea, I had to look for online help from different webmaster.
I joined webmasters forums like digital point; submit express, Hubpages forums, v7n and many others. I have to admit that I got some good information on how I can make money online through Adsense. I began my online career with Hubpages which is an Adsense sharing website. I found there many webmasters who where claiming that they make up to 400 dollars a day through Google Adsense. That gave me the strength to move on, though I left Hubpages without earning the money I expected.
I am not saying that Adsense sharing websites like Hubpages, Triond, Xomba and Info barrel are bad; actually, every newbie should begin from there. If you begin your make money online career with a personal website, then be sure that you might be headed for a big fall. It normally take more than 5 to 10 months for a serious person to begin earning money online. If you begin with a person website you will be incurring costs without making any money.
Have Your Own Website
If you need to seriously make money from Google Adsense, you must have your own website. The idea of using an Adsense sharing website might not be bad, but you should remember that you are working on a website which is not yours. Those sites can ban you at any time and some of them do not 100% disclose there sharing principle. If you have a personal website, you will be absolutely sure that all the revenue will go to your pocket.
For that, you might need a good Webhosting company and a domain registrar. You should begin with the cheap hosting offers so that you do not spend much yet earning little, as your site grows, you might decide to upgrade to a better hosting offer.
The way you place your ads on your website will determine how much money you make through Google Adsense. Poor ad placement will cost you much. It is a general rule which any one must follow that Ads above the fold make money than the ads below the fold.
It has been discovered that many people who visit a particular website might not scroll down to see the bottom of the page. This is why it is important to put your ads above the page which will guarantee you that all the visitors t your site will see the Ads.
This trick also worked for me, I have a website with more than 30,000 visitors a day (not this one). However, I could get only 200 clicks on the site per day. So I decided to put most of my ads above the fold. Within days, I could get between 900 to 1200 clicks everyday.
Adsense ad Formats
It is also a known fact that some ads units perform better than others. Large Adsense format will produce more CTR (Click through Rate). This is partly because such units are more visible to smaller ones.
Some of the best performing ads formats include Large Rectangle, Medium Rectangle, Wide Sky Scrapper and Leader Board. The problem with the small formats is that they are normally neglected by the website visitors.
Adsense for Feeds
Many people normally focus on Adsense for content and they neglect the Adsense for Feeds. 15% of my monthly earning form Google is from Adsense for Feeds. You have to sign up for a Feed Burner account to and add you website. I have a website with more than 9000 registered users though feed burner. Every time I publish an article, my subscribers get a preview of it with an Adsense Ad below it. It is a great way to earn free money.
Adsense For Search
Even though you do not want to hear it, the fact is that your website visitors will eventually leave your site. You have to be prepared for that with an Adsense for search box on your site. You should put in a strategic location, probably below the page of above.
The good thing with Adsense for Search is that you can customize your search box to display results from the websites you want. You can even customize it to display ads from your site only. Every time a visitors uses you search box, there is a possibility that they can click on an ad which will give your more income.
There is no way you can make money through Adsense without visitors to your blog or websites. It is those visitors who actually bring you money. I know of people who began websites a long time ago but have since remained the sole visitors to their websites. Eventually, they will shut done their websites and look for money from else where.
You should make proper SEO (Search Engine Optimization) method for your websites in order to drive traffic to it. This might include social bookmarking, getting links from forums, building links and article marketing. You should however remember tat it takes time for a site to grow in traffic.
Paying Adsense Keywords
There are some people who make $2 per click from their websites yet others make $0.01 per click. The idea behind this is that there are some keywords which weigh more than others. If you want to make good money online through Adsense, you have to for the high paying Keywords,
You might find that a website with 500 clicks a day earns far too less than one with 80 clicks. It is a question of Keywords. You can use the Google Key Word Tool to discover which keywords will pay you more basing on the competitions. I have to warn you though that High Paying Adsense Keywords normally have a lot of competition and it is not a good idea for a beginner to begin with them. There are so many expert bloggers around the whole who are centered on those keywords.
This is the most important of all the points mentioned above. You need to be patient; Google Adsense is not a get rich quick scheme. It is a program for the serious and smart people who are willing to offer their original and good content. Some people even take years without getting their first cheque but when the money starts to flow; it is the patient who will see it. You have to persist even when you do not see the money as close as you thought
