Sign Up for AdSense
Although it might seem as though this should be the first step, but you can only make money with AdSense once you have quality content and a following.
- Create an Ad Unit– Once accepted, the first thing you’ll want to do is create an ad unit. Ad units are the units you set up with AdSense in order to manage the ads that appear on your site. Here, you will have the option to select the size of the ad (banner, skyscraper, Leaderboard), as well as the color, shape, etc.
- Ad Placement- Next, pay attention to the ad placement. While it may not seem like such a big deal now, the placement of your ads has a lot to do with the frequency at which they are clicked and thus, how much money you make.
- Set up Channels- There is also the option to set up channels in order to analyze which methods are working best, and if these channels are set to “targeted” it allows interested advertisers to place specific ads on your site.
- Repeat these Steps- Other than that, the most important actions you can take are to continue to post quality content, promote your site, and experiment with the ads you are posting. Also, keep in mind, that most sites that do well with AdSense revenues have hundreds of articles on them. One of the most important things is that you take the time to write (or purchase) quality content, that this content is posted regularly, and that it is promoted on the consistent basis.
Overall, a fairly simple way to earn extra revenue from your site, making money from AdSense really depends on each site owner’s dedication to providing quality, relevant content as well as the rest of the aforementioned steps.
