Google Ad sense! Beginners Guide

What is Google Adsense? Google Adsense is Pay per click Advertising program.

To put it simply, it means that bloggers /website owners place Google Adsense Ads on their blogs/ sites, and when the visitors click on the Ad, they are paid.

The reason it is so popular and profitable is the fact that the Ads that are relevant to the site's content are shown. So, for example, my blog is about Making Money Online, the Ads that will be displayed will have these keywords.In order to place Google Ads on your site, you need to sign up as a publisher first. Google will then review your application and accept/reject it. Once accepted, you will be given a Publisher Id, and get code that you can place on your website to start displaying the Ads. Read the Google Adsense Program Policy.

Ad PlacementFrom what I've researched, Google Ads placement plays a major role in generating the clicks. Some articles suggested that Ads should be placed on the top left, or right after the header of the site, or right after the content. All of them had one purpose: To catch the readers' eye. Flexibility and Ease of UsePlacing your Ads on the blog is very easy with blogger.

All you need is to enter your Publisher ID, and change the colors and display the Ads.The reason why Google Adsense is the most successful advertising program is the fact that they match the content on the site and place relevant ads on each site. Also, they use the most frequently used keywords for search in their ads. Since the visitors are already looking for more information on that subject, and are more likely to click on the Ad. Look and FeelThere are quite a lot of choices of Ads, there are text ads, image ads, link units etc. You can also customize the background and colour of the font. My research says that the blended ads are the ones that work best, that is, the colours should match the colours of your website.
