Today I will go over my online business with AdSense. Over the past several months I have been working day and night trying to earn a steady income through AdSense. I just passed the $100 threshold on the 7th of December. In order for AdSense to pay you, you need to earn $100. It took 10,916 page views, 425 ad clicks and just over three months to complete. I am not sure what the actual amount is but I work at a rate of about 10¢ per hour. All in hopes to make decent living while traveling the world and spending time with my family!
Google AdSense is great because you will always have companies advertising on your site. Another great feature is the better your site gets through social media popularity, website content and keywords, the more you will get per click. Companies use a Google AdWords account to create and bid their ads to go onto the web. The highest bidder gets their ad on a website.
My job is to write good content, use keywords, build a social network and place the best ad in the best location on my web pages. I choose different ad shapes and sizes, text ads, picture ads, and even what type of advertising they show. They range from business entrepreneur classes to web development. The way that I pick and choose is I just follow what Google suggests for me. I also look at my reports to find out what ads are getting clicked, how much I'm getting paid for those click and then tweaking my other ads to match up. The ads on a web page need to be well balanced and fit in. I go to other websites more popular than mine or at least ones that I think are successful and try to get inspiration from what they have.
