First of all learning about the Internet is essential so that you can talk the talk as well as understand the many different parts which make up the whole. One of the truly successful money-making schemes you will come across in a home business is known as AdSense. This enables young businesses to start developing an early income on the Internet which will eventually become a huge earner for any popular website.
AdSense - Google's Money-making Brainchild
When you have your Website up and running on the Content Network it is possibly time to start considering a stream of income known as AdSense.
These are ads which are placed on your site by Google and which relate to the topic of your site. You can understand, though, that Google won't be interested until you are receiving 25 to 30 visits per day. For a site owner to qualify for the scheme his site has to be reasonably significant in its ranking.
This is not hard to achieve and Google are sufficiently in contact with your site to recognize the advertising potential it carries. Low volumes obviously reduce the effectiveness of their AdSense advertising so they just won't be interested in the investment costs.
Your income from AdSense comes from the number of clicks you get on the ads and the payment will range from a few cents to a few dollars, depending on the amount of money the advertisers bid to pay per click.
This is the top money spinning facility in Google's arsenal and because of the volume of people searching the web and clicking away at anything which catches their eye the AdSense system was devised and is hugely successful.
An advertiser will apply to Google to have their products advertised by pay-per-click (ppc). Google in turn is approached by site owners to place ads on their site. Bingo, everyone wins! The advertiser sells more products because of more exposure on related sites. He is happy because he pays only for the people who click through and read his ads, thus reducing his usual hit-and-miss advertising campaigns. The site owner wins because Google pays them 30 to 40% of the ad income, and Google keeps the change. (As in $ millions!)
Those pesky little ads are often there, always exactly the sort of topic you are searching and always incredibly enticing. If you do click the ad then all three parties exchange money.
A side development of this system which is looked upon with some derision is MFA. These are Made for AdSense sites and don't offer much other than a venue for placing ads. One of the ideals of the Internet is that it provides value. If sites like MFA's have no value they have nothing to offer. This raises the question about whether or not AdSense is a true business. Oh yes, it makes people lots of money, but what does it produce which has value?
Regard the AdSense scheme as an add-on. It presents an opportunity for income, it is easy to set up, Google encourages it and it almost runs on its own. But always beware of Google, they can change their arrangements at any time - and everyone feels the crunch. We can't rely on AdSense as a stable business because of this so always use it as a second-stream income.
AdSense is driven on similar skills as are required for affiliate marketing. The main requirements being SEO, keywords and niche. The more traffic driven to the site the better and to reach real success the page requires high page rank awarded by the search engines. So really, we can't get away from providing good, original content on sites which are fully optimized, are in the most appropriate niche and are using the best keywords!
A very good alternative to setting up AdSense is to buy a ready-made business which can be up and running almost overnight and which already contains multiple streams of income. In this way you will not have to do all the groundwork nor go to the expense of arranging your affiliations and developing a website. (In these days of multi-stream residual incomes that is certainly worth considering!)
As they say, you work your fingers to the bone, wade through all the muck and in the end just fade away like all Internet Marketers!
