Google AdSense

by Ron Kurtus (revised 24 October 2016)

A popular method to gain online revenue is to sell advertising space on your website through the Google AdSense program. This program places relevant ads on your web pages, according to your content and key words. When users of your site click on an ad, you gain a commission.

If your website has a Google search feature, AdSense also places ads along with the search results.

In order to participate in the Google AdSense program, you must enroll and be accepted. Then you can obtain code that can be placed in appropriate locations on your web pages. Each month you receive commission payments. You can also monitor your progress throughout the month.

This lesson will answer those questions.



Enroll in AdSense program

When you enroll in the Google AdSense program, you agree to post ads through AdSense on your web pages. In return, Google agrees to pay a certain amount for every person accessing the page and clicking on one of the ads place on the page. They then click-through to the company sponsoring the ad.

Ad placement

You can select the types of ads to display on your web pages. There are a variety of formats and sizes that you can select that would fit within your page design, as well as to gain the most commissions.

The type of ads displayed are usually relevant to the material on your web page and the type of people who might view the page.

To optimize the results, you are limited to a certain number of ads per page. Of course, you are encouraged to place ads in as many pages in your site as you want.

Getting paid

Google keeps track of the number of page views and clicks. At the end of each month, they deposits a commission amount in your bank account.

Summary

One way to gain online revenue is to sell advertising space on your website through the Google AdSense program. This program places relevant ads on your web pages, according to your content and key words. When users of your site click on an ad, you gain a commission.
