Getting started with Google AdSense
Google AdSense is a targeted advertising program, that involves placing other people’s ads on your website to generate revenue. You will get paid each time someone clicks on one of the Google ads supplied on your website. You need to set up a Google AdSense account.
However, it is not good practice to use AdSense for eCommerce because the ads can cause visitors to navigate away from your website.
You can decide which types of ads you want to display. The popular choice is a combination of text and display ads. The reality is that you would need to get an average of 10,000 visitors to your website per day, to earn around £7.50/ $10.00.
Try to have each one of your pages target only one specific topic. This way it is a lot easier for your pages to get indexed properly, and for the AdSense ads to be consistent with the content of the site itself.
Also, try not to include too many hyperlinks in your page. This also means you should try not to use too many AdSense ads on your page.
If there are certain keywords you wish to target, make sure this word is present in the title, in the first paragraphs, as well as in the name of the file.
How to activate your AdSense account
Google AdSense will send you a pin that you will need to confirm for the ads to run. They will review your website before approval. You will also need to ensure that you are posting original and not duplicate content on your website.
If you want to make passive income from AdSense, then you will need to use the top competitive keywords in your chosen niche. Use high-paying keywords from the Google Keyword Planner found under the “Tools” or spanner icon of your Google Ads account.
Add AdSense ads to the top pages of your website, not to the bottom.
As of April 2017, you can no longer run Google AdSense ads on your YouTube channel if you have under 10,000 views. Video traffic is big business. If you build your YouTube channel by regularly posting videos that people want to watch, you can generate this number of views and make a good income from AdSense advertising.
