Google Adsense

Many people are talking about Google Adsense, and making money from placing the Google Adsense Ads on your blogs or websites. They said that there are money to be made by doing that. Is that really truth? Well yes and no. Firstly, let's talk about yes,

there is money to be made, but how? These are the things you need to do first.

1. Go to Google Adsense page and create a free account.

2. Provide all your details and the Website URL or blog you wish to place the Google Adsense Ads and submit it to Google Adsense Team for approval.

3. Approximately about 4 days, you will receive an email from them to tell you whether your application is approved. If yes, Congratulations!

4. Once it is approved, you can then go to your Adsense back office to get to Ads code to place it in your blogs or websites. Once you can get the code, you can place it in any of your sites or blog even if you did not put that URL when you first submit your details. But make sure it is your own sites. There will be walkthroughs in the back office for you learn how to get your codes.

5. How does Google know what Ads to show on your sites when you place the code there? Well, Google's system can filter out what Ads to show on your sites or blogs
basing on the content of your page.

Next I will mention about the no, you will not make money issue:

1) If your sites or blogs do not have enough traffic, that means no one is visiting it except yourself, then how on earth can you make money from Google Adsense, it doesn't make sense :)

2) No, you don't go click on those Google Adsense Ads placed on your own sites or
blogs, you will not only not be paid, your license will be terminated.

3) Placing your Google Adsense Ads at the wrong place and wrong color combination are some factors that will affect your earnings.
Best place to place the Ads are at the top of your sites or blogs, mid section is sometimes ok too. Bottom will not be so good.

You can read about the recommendations at Google's back office too. Below is a map you can see.

Certain locations tend to be more successful than others. This "heat map" illustrates these ideal placements on a sample page layout. The colors fade from dark orange (strongest performance) to light yellow (weakest performance). All other things being equal, ad placements above the fold tend to perform better than those below the fold. Ads placed near rich content and navigational aids usually do well because users are focused on those areas of a page.

For your learning resources you can watch the demos on

1) Get Started demos
