Make Money With Your Blog: Google Adsense

With Some Work, Your Blog Can Be Making Money With Adsense, Too.

Most people who own a blog know at least something about  trying to monetize it. Making money for your blog can help with domain name costs, help increase your advertising budget, and just help you have some extra money on the side. One way to make money from your blog is to use Google's Adsense feature.

Google Adsense is nothing more than text and image ads. They use words that are written on your page to make ads that go along with your articles. You earn a percentage of the amount paid by the advertiser, depending on how many people click on the ads on your website.

Google Adsense is defiantly not a get rich quick scheme. Your money directly reflects on how many page views you have and how many people click on your ads. Google will monitor your blog once you put them up though, so don't try to post ads saying to click on your ads, because they will shut down your account.

Step One: Make A Google Adsense Account

You can do this by going to You log into your Google Account, and then go through the steps on the screen to set up your account. You may need to verify your email address, also.

After finishing the set up, Google may take up to three days to review your website, and to make sure it is legitimate and you're not just trying to scam them out of some money. Once they approve you, you're ready to start making money.

Step Two: Ad Placement

After you've been approved, you need to think about where you're going to place the ads on your page. Where you place them can directly impact how much money you make. Try experimenting with different positions, but don't over fill your blog with ads, because Google might take it as spam and ban you.

Along with ads placement comes ads coloring. You want to try to make the ads look appealing, and make people want to click on them. For this, you can try hundreds of different combinations and pick what you like best.

Step Three: Start Earning

Basically, that's all there is to making money using Adsense. Like I said earlier, this is no get rich quick scheme, and it usually takes a long time to even make pocket change when your starting out. So don't rush things; just sit down, write good posts, and get more traffic to your site, and the money will start to roll in. There are many good pages to read to learn how to monetize your blog, and some will give you more tips, but be careful with what you try, because Google can dock your search engine rankings for trying to cheat them in their own game.

I hope this blog helps you with making a little money on the side with your blog. If you have any questions just leave them below! Follow @Balescene on Twitter for news on any new posts or upcoming contests.
