The Google AdSense program works by placing highly targeted ads on a network of member websites. When you become a member of the AdSense network, whenever someone visits your website and clicks on one of the advertisements related to your topic, you earn a share of the advertising revenue.
AdSense is now a multibillion dollar industry, with a great earnings potential for any website owner who knows how to get started using AdSense, creating ad units, and above all, customizing their settings for maximum clicks.
In this hands-on guide, the authors take you through the principles of online advertising and how AdSense is a unique opportunity that even beginners can start earning money from immediately provided that they set up their ads correctly in both the Google AdSense interface and on their own website.
Once your ads are set up correctly, they can supply a continuous stream of steady income around the clock, even when you are asleep. If you are looking for new ways to earn money online and already have a website, AdSense could be the additional income you are looking for. If you are a pure beginner just starting out with your website, AdSense income can help your website pay its way while you set up other income opportunities, such as affiliate programs or your even your own products to sell online.
Once you set up your AdSense ad units correctly, this step-by-step guide will show you how to track and test the performance of your ads for even better click -through rates and more profits. The best part about AdSense is that once you have set up your website with all of your AdSense units, all you will have to worry about is driving traffic to your website. The Google AdSense network will do the rest, providing new streams of income on your website and even in your RSS feeds.
Best of all, anyone can set up a successful AdSense advertising network for their website provided they can copy and paste, and are willing to put in some time and effort to learn the top strategies for AdSense success.
