Continuing with my series on making money online, one of the most popular methods used by junior and advanced bloggers alike is Google AdSense. Almost any website you visit, be it a small-time blogger to a large news site such as CNN’s news page, will have or had used Google AdSense at one point in their history. The reason for this is the ease of use and customization.
Google’s AdSense service is popular for two reasons. For starters, AdSense works by mining the text on the webpage that the ad is located on to find a set of key words. These key words are matched with the terms Google’s advertisers are wishing to associate their product and services with, therefore, your site will display relevant content that your readers might want to click on and explore. So, for example, if you wrote an article about visiting Manhattan, you might find advertisements for travel agencies or special events that are happening on Broadway.
The second reason it is so popular is that it is easy to use. All a person needs to know is how to page a section of code into your website in the location where you want the ads to be displayed. After that, Google does the rest. Because it is so easy to use, there are so many bloggers who subscribe to and use Google AdSense. With this large pool of users out there, Google can bring in even more advertisers to into their service, creating a wider variety of products and services to be matched up with your content.
Some users have taken Google Adsense a step further. It is not uncommon to find a pool of users signing up with an adsense revenue sharing site, where you can pool your content with others in the hope of generating even more revenue. After all, the point of running AdSense is to generate money, and with Googles technology of matching relevant ads with your content makes this practice even easier. So take a moment and register with Google and practice with adding AdSense to your site.
