How Google Adsense Works
Google Adsense tool creates ads that are placed on your website. When a visitor click on this advertisement you earn money, or each 1,000 times an advertisement shows you earn money.
You might earn $0.10 per click, or $1 for 1,000 views of the ads. If you have 50,000 pageviews a month, you might earn $100 from Adsense a month. (Results vary, of course, as do click-through-rates, as does the price Google will pay you.) Once you have made $100, Google will cut you a check.
Ads can be tailored to remove competitors, however these are typically the best sources of clicks as they relate to your content. Custom design the look, size, and feel to produce ads that fit with your content and theme.
Adsense makes sense for websites with a healthy amount of traffic. If you don’t have the traffic, Adsense is unlikely to produce results for you. Get started today.
