Google has a means for you to make money if you have a website, a blog, or any other type of online presence. Google AdSense is a service that aims to make everyone a financial winner: advertisers get new clients or sales through the AdWords program, Google gets money to run those adverts, and you get money when people click on them on your website.
Google will deliver adverts that are relevant to the exact content of a web page using internet search technologies. For example, if you’re on a page about the latest golf competition, Google will show you advertising for golf clubs or golfing apparel. You are compensated every time someone clicks on one of those adverts if you own the site. This is commonly referred to as CPC (Cost Per Click) advertising.
Benefits of Google Adsense
It’s possible that you won’t even see banner advertising any longer. We have learned to filter them out as a web-savvy society. There is also banner-filtering software available, as banner adverts can be extremely irritating and hurt your website’s readership. Google AdSense, on the other hand, is different since the advertising are less intrusive than giant banner ads, and the content is more relevant to the web page, so it has a greater impact.
Google Ads can also be used to make a healthy income. You may generate thousands of dollars each month with the proper combination of traffic, content, and users. You can’t expect to put Google Ads on your site and then sit back and rest as the money rolls in. That isn’t how it works. It takes an investment of your time, just like anything else in business, to earn a predictable return.
How Does Google Adsense Work?
If your blog or website now has 100,000 monthly visitors, that’s more than one million each year. Consider how this relates to ad income potential:
- You have 200,000 ad views.
- You have a click-through rate (CTR) of 1%, which usually is standard.
- 1% of 200,000 is 2,000.
- If the Cost Per Click of the ad is $0.01, you make $20.
- If the Cost Per Click of the ad is $2.00, you make $2,000.
There’s a significant gap between the two, and most advertising don’t pay out at $1 per click. You’re more likely to find a rate somewhere in the middle, which can add up to hundreds of dollars every month. The lower the CPC, the more obvious and widespread the ad’s term, which is what triggers the ad itself, is—and this is knowledge you can use.
Maximizing Advertisement Revenue
There are various ways to improve your revenue, whether you want to make money from an existing blog or website or start a blog just for the goal of earning AdSense money:
- To maximize the keywords in your text, use search engine optimization (SEO) optimized writing.
- More writing is required. The more you write about your subject, the more keywords Google will find and use to serve adverts.
- Write frequently. It’s all about having more stuff, and the fresher it is, the better.
- Post stuff that is both valuable and accurate. It’s difficult to read rubbish that’s full with keywords, and it won’t keep people coming back. You want your site to be sticky so that it attracts visitors.
- Make a niche for yourself. It’s fine to talk about football, but thousands of others do it every day. Another narrative is about movie soundtrack collections, which is a less popular topic.
- Don’t send too much nasty traffic your way. It’s easier than you might think to generate a lot of traffic, but if that traffic isn’t qualified and people aren’t there to read your material, it’ll be a waste of time. It also has an impact on your CTR.
- Utilize Google Analytics. Google provides free tools to help you evaluate your website for profit.
Competitors’ Ads on your website?
When you first start running ads on your website, one of the most difficult difficulties you’ll face is competition. Depending on the type of site you run, you may notice that adverts that are directly competing with what you’re selling or offering begin to appear. For example, if you have a website dedicated to drop shipping a specific product, such as Disney toys or snow globes, you may notice adverts for those items diverting users away from your site. This is not a wise business decision.
Is there anything that can be done about it? Yes. Google foresaw this problem and now allows you to ban material from up to 500 URLs.
However, it can be difficult to figure out who to block until you start seeing such adverts. Worse, because of the way AdSense sends out material, you may never see those adverts.
Furthermore, as an AdSense user, you are unable to immediately click on these links to see where the ads are being sent. It’s a blatant breach of AdSense’s regulations, but if you’re lucky enough to see it, you can right-click on the ad and block the link or URL. This is reliant on a bit of chance.
The best approach to make a list is to do a Google search for the items or services you’re selling and take note of the top 50 URLs that show up. That’s a fantastic strategy to keep ad traffic away from sites that are plainly competitors.
