Monetize your site with Adsense .. Part Three

The second method is when you begin really working in marketing.

You will be building web pages specifically for Adsense ads. These pages will be built with high paying keywords and high quality content.

Start by doing a keyword search to find some popular subjects, keywords or phrases related to the theme of your website. Select the ones that have highest number of searches. This means that more people are typing these terms into the search engines. The higher the number the better.  There are many tools that you can use to find profitable keywords and phrases. For quick and easy results you can use the keyword selector tool at Yahoo Search Marketing. It will give you a count of how many times any keyword has been searched for in the last 30 days. Remember the higher the better!  Another place to check is in Google’s Adwords Tool. 

Now start writing articles with original content based on the keywords from your search. If you aren't a writer don't worry. There are many ways that you can get content for your site. You can use private label articles that you purchase, or hire a ghostwriter from a site like  We will cover this in more depth in later lessons.

Once you have the content ready you can start building web pages around the articles that include your Adsense blocks.

Monetize your site - Google AdSense part One

Besides adding affiliate links, like Amazon, you can monetize your web site using other types of links.  Google's AdSense program is one of the simplest ways to begin earning money using your blog web site.

Adsense delivers relevant text and image ads that are precisely targeted to your site content. Every time someone sees an ad on your site and clicks on it you will make money. Sometimes it's only a few cents. Sometimes it's a few dollars. It all depends on the individual ad.

Adsense is considered a very powerful tool to many website owners. If you go to most any website these days you will see Adsense ad blocks incorporated somewhere on the page. Did you know that there are many people that make a full time living from Adsense alone?

Adsense makes it pretty easy for you to start earning revenue from every page on your website almost instantly. "If you can copy and paste you can put Adsense on your website". As with any good tool Adsense has the power to help you generate a very nice income when it's used properly.

Let's start off by taking the time to get to know Google Adsense and learn how to use it properly. You would be surprised how many people skip this part and then they are literally shocked when they don't make any money!

If you take a little time to become familiar with the program it will greatly benefit you in the long run, by helping you maximize your earnings. In this course we are going to cover the basic points that you need to start using Adsense and making money with it.

If you haven't already done this, go do it now.

Get the word out

Begin actively participating on online forums, commenting on other blogs, and commenting on social media networks like facebook and twitter.  Try to just be social when you are on other sites - don't try to be a salesperson.  If people like what you have to say in these places they will likely look at your blog (make sure you somehow highlight your website address).  Having fresh and original content on your website will keep readers coming back for more information and they will also be more interested in the items you recommend through your site.

Creating Profitable Affiliate Websites

One of the easiest ways to make money online is by developing a detailed, honest and straightforward review website for your niche market.

From Amazon affiliate review sites, to developing review sites around the television programs, movies and music that you love, you can build a very profitable business online, all powered by targeted review websites!
