Google AdSense has simplified the process of making money online for even the small time niche website owner. There are literally thousands of ways to make money online. Many of these methods require you to get people to reach into their pockets and pull out their credit cards. This is easier said than done and may be a somewhat daunting challenge for the inexperienced copywriter. However, Google's AdSense program has streamlined the money making process by removing a step while allowing us to make money from our niche websites.
Anyone can build a website and begin to profit within a matter of minutes. We no longer have to convince our visitors to buy. In fact, we do not even have to sell them anything. Google AdSense allows us to profit with the simple click of our visitor's mouse. Here is a quick outline of how you too can cash in with Google AdSense.
The first thing you will need to do is choose a topic for the niche website that you will build for displaying Google AdSense ads. You are free to choose whichever topic your heart so desires, since Google AdSense has relevant ads for a vast range of categories and topics. It is recommended that you choose a topic in which you have experience or are interested in. This will make it easier to come up with fresh content for your website, or at least keep you interested while you are building up your website with topic-related content.
You will be developing a list of keywords based on your niche site topic and incorporating these into articles or locating articles focusing on each individual word or phrase within your list. No need to worry. Google AdSense is flexible and will only display ads relevant to your site's topic. You are now ready to build your site.
Depending on your skill set, building a website for Google AdSense will be either a pleasure or a royal pain. If you do not know HTML from BYOB, fear not, there are many free professional site templates, which will allow you to add your own pictures, graphics and personal touch in order to build a Google AdSense website to your liking. There are also many website building software programs available to make the development step a breeze even for the greenest of beginners. One such software is called XSitePro.
XSitePro is an extremely user-friendly website building software. It is a complete package containing all of the tools necessary for the design, development and construction of a website that both you and the search engines will love. XSitePro comes with a comprehensive user manual, which serves as your roadmap to access all of the features and exploit the abilities of this very capable tool.
This software simplifies all of your website building tasks from creating attractive homepages to tricky website optimization. Everything in the XSitePro package is laid out beautifully in instructional videos designed to flatten the learning curve and get you in the fast lane to Google AdSense profits.
After you have built your website, you will need to apply to the Google AdSense Program. This is a very quick and painless process. Simply complete the online application form on the Google AdSense site, submit it, and wait for approval. It is that simple. Once you have been approved (This usually takes a few days), you will have access to the Google AdSense Console where you will be able to find your Google AdSense Publisher's code.
This is the coding that you will insert into your website's HTML (Did I mention that XSitePro takes care of this step too?) so that you can display Google AdSense ads. If for some reason your website is rejected, you will receive a detailed explanation. Simply make the necessary changes to your website and re-apply to the Google AdSense Program.
Now you have reached the final step in the process of making money from Google AdSense. This last step is not so much a step as it is an ongoing process. In order to make money from Google's AdSense program, you will need people to click on your ads. Before you decide to simply click the ads yourself or send your new site to your list of 200 people on your msn list, stop right there. You are not allowed to click on your own ads. Furthermore, if Google finds out that you have bots or friends clicking your ads (and they WILL find out), you could be banned from their program for life.
In simple terms, make sure that your traffic and visitors are from legitimate advertising. You can advertise your new site in a number of ways. The best way to build gradual, but long-term traffic is by writing articles and submitting them to the major article directories. There are other means to get quick, short-term traffic surges, but we are building a Google AdSense business here where slow and steady wins the race. Believe me; you will be happy you built your Google AdSense house on rock foundation when you are cashing your AdSense checks for many months and years down the road.
