How To Make Money With Google Adsense By Blogging
90% of the ads you see on websites online like TMZ, FoxNews, GhanaWeb and the rest are all Google Adsense ads. These ads are controlled by Google, and they pay you(website or blog owner) money just to show ads on your website.
A couple of years ago, You could start a blog for free using Google’s free blogging platform blogger.com, blog about your personal life, attract a lot of readers and Google pays you for placing ads on your content. Nowadays, It’s not that simple.
Most readers online do not want to read about your personal life but rather learn something new. 99% of the time people search for content on Google is to acquire valuable information and not to read about a random person’s life, They have youtube for that now.
All that I’m trying to say is, To make money with Adsense by blogging in today’s age, You will need to provide valuable content to your readers to get traffic to your website in order to make money from Google Adsense.
TIP: TO MAKE MONEY WITH GOOGLE, YOU NEED GOOD CONTENT AND TRAFFIC.
Some of the niche sites/blogs that can easily get your site traffic include:
News blogs are one of the most popular ways to make money with Adsense. By starting a news blog you can get visitors coming to your site daily. There are certain niches you can’t blog about if you intend to make money with Adsense from your site. Such as:
- Adult sites (Any website with adult content will not be accepted to use AdSense)
- Vaping or drug-related niches
- Gambling and Casino sites
- Websites promoting violence
To make money with your blog and AdSense you’ll need to place about 3 AdSense banner ads on each page of your site.
Anytime a visitor clicks on an ad on your website, You get paid. Mostly anywhere from $0.10 to $10 depending on a couple of factors which includes the niche of your site and the country of your website visitor.
Google pays more for traffic from tier 1 countries. Meaning if you receive 100,000 visitors to your website a month from Africa, The money you will make from your traffic won’t be as much as a blogger who receives 100,000 visitors a month from America, Canada or the U.K.
This is because, Advertisers from these tier 1 countries, pay more to get their ads shown to people from tier 1 countries. This shouldn’t discourage you if the content of your website is targeted at Africans, African bloggers make money too from African traffic. You just have to focus on creating good content and getting more targeted traffic to your website.
