Your Guide to Making Money with Adsense: Part I

Before you even think about using Adsense, there are a few basics we must run through. You can skip these if you feel they don't apply to you. But if you're already making money on Adsense I would highly recommend you read this useful guide anyways.

1. You must own or decide to make a website.
Not everyone is a webmaster, not everyone can create wonderful layouts and pages of their own with code, but pretty much everyone can make a website these days.

2. You must generate traffic to your website in order to give Adsense a chance at making you money. There are multiple ways of getting traffic. It can either be earned or bought. To earn it, you must obviously have good content, and lots of it. Your website must be 'sticky' in that the visitor has a reason to come back whether it's to sort through all of your material or to get updates. This is the way you go about maintaining traffic levels instead of busting your wallet. You don't have to, but you can add your website to directories and request link exchanges with other websites. And, you absolutely must make it easy for your viewers to find your website on search engines. But these are things for another day. The alternative is for those who are confident that an investment in marketing will bring them a sound response and net profits.

So you've got your site and you're ready to convert your traffic into earnings. Good job getting this far. It should be a cruise from here, right? You'd like to think so, but most people make careless mistakes in how they advertise on their website, and this is the place where you will find advice. Onto the Adsense tips!

Sites are limited to three units on a page so as to not overwhelm readers. Positioning is crucial. Studies show that the most viewed area of a page is toward the top and left (where the majority of English language writing begins). Placing ads right after the content or embedding them in the articles are also effective techniques. Google has examples of placement to guide you once you join AdSense.
Adsense allows you to customize the ad colors to match the look of your site. Use this ability to make the ads look like the rest of the links on your site and be sure to match the background color as well. Visitors will respond better as they see will give the text a chance instead of unconsciously rejecting them as advertisements. Most advertisers make the mistake of drawing the reader's attention to their ad with vibrant colours and perhaps an animation or sound. That certainly catches your eye, but does it make you want to buy something from them if you know they're just out to grab your attention? The customer feels better knowing that it was them who was interested in the actual content of the ad, not the flashy colors that drew them in.

1. Ads at the top of the page and on the left of the page perform better than any other ads.
2. Ads without background colour and borders perform better than ads within borders with background colour.
3. Ads within content pages perform better than any other ads.
4. A search box on every page gives you another chance for earning Adsense income.
5. Your link at the top of the ad should be blue like a normal
link, the ad should be black, and the URL should also be black so that it blends in with the ad copy. That makes the link stand out and gives you a better chance of someone clicking on it.

Diversify and Multiply your Cashflow

With a little effort, you can earn a little cash. But as long as you don't mind that the money isn't pouring in by the truckload in a week, and if you've created multiple streams of small amounts of cash, the bottom line will slowly crawl up until all of those little streams turn into an 'ocean' of cash. It's not eBay, but it won't dig into your free time like eBay does. I'm going to put together another list of links to places which I personally pick. Companies are willing to award a little bit of cash for a little bit of effort - which if you don't mind, will be an alright upgrade to your lifestyle. The key is that there are tons and tons of websites which are willing to offer you this. If you diversify your cash flow, you will be earning lots of little cheques, as opposed to the mystical 'big cheque'. That's all I'm willing to promise you. You'll find, on the optimistic side, that your payroll will increase if you put more effort and tell others about their website. You will be credited for work that others do, and if you just put that little amount of time, you can really build up the profits.

Without further ado:

Note: I will be updating this list for the next few weeks. Keep checking back as it will grow. - You get paid to read ads. You collect money for doing basically nothing, so you've got nothing to lose by signing up.

Get a small (but consistent) stream of cash just by reading emails

Here is a list of online programs which will send you emails periodically. You get paid for reading each one, sponsored by the advertisers. It seems we've moved into an age where so much junk gets filtered that advertisers are paying now just to be seen via email. One thing you need to consider is that before you get a paycheck you must reach a minimum amount of earnings. For example, a few websites will require you to build up 50 dollars before they send out a cheque. This is normal for a business, as it would be a waste of time to send out cheques for 15 and 20 cents. AdSense's quota is 100 dollars, but these email programs will have much lower requirements. Here is a list of ones I have used:

I would suggest you look out for more, but here are ones which are good for everyone. I would suggest you create or designate a separate email to set these accounts up, as you will be looking through a lot of emails. It's all worth it in the long run.

Four Suggestions for You

Not everyone is a veteran when it comes to ad revenue, so here are four ways to make money. They require time and resources, but less than you'd think.

1. Sign up for Google's Adsense program.
A good company that converts traffic into revenue. A classy company with a successful program. A plus is that it fits in nicely to any website without making it look trashy. People don't like to be bombarded with ads, so text is a good idea for your own website. That's why I use it. I'm just like you, it's nothing personal, I just don't see that there's anything to lose from gaining a little bit of money no matter what the site is about.

2. Sign up for surveys which pay you to fill them out.
If you've got extra time you may as well sign up an email account which can be designated for this. Advertisers are eager to know what you want to buy, so they will pay good money to gather that information. Once again, I'm not going to promote anyone here. I'll leave it to you to set that up.

3. Sign up for pay-click emails which will pay you for seeing their advertisements.
If you don't mind a few extra clicks you will be able to build up a little extra cash. The more you sign up for the more emails you get - most websites will limit the amount of emails you recieve so that you can't make truckloads, so signing up for different websites is the best way to go about making this avenue of income worthwhile.

4. Sell your excess items online.
Ebay, for example, is a great place to start. You have a lot of stuff sitting around that I'm sure you don't need. I'm sure I don't need to explain the selling tactics but as you know, even if you're only getting a fraction of the original price back in return, there will be more than a handful of suitors willing to pay up.
