Becoming a google affiliate is really easy and is a great way to earn some money for what you are probably gonna be doing on the web anyway. All you need is a website or a blog, then sign up for an AdSense account, and, if you wish, you can also apply to join the Google Affiliate Network. It’s a simple process and im about to explain how to do it and provide you with some helpful hints
It’s nearly impossible for me to say how much money you will make, as there are far too many variables, such as your skills, the time and effort you are willing to put in and also the niche you plan to work in, but what I can say is that it’s possible to do some good figures. 😉
What is AdSense And How Does It Work?
Google AdSense is a free program that empowers you to earn revenue by displaying relevant ads on your blog or website. The revenue earned is paid to you via Google AdSense’s global payments system.
There are two methods you can use
- AdSense for Content
- AdSense for Search
AdSense For Content
This lets you display ads on your website which are suited to your audience’s interests. You will earn from valid clicks or impressions. Lets say you blog about holiday destinations Google will display ads relevant to holidays, maybe ads for hotels or flights.
You can also customise such things as the colour, the font and where on your site they display. It can be a text or an image ad.
Here is an example of both…
AdSense For Search
This is where you add a search bar to your website or blog and create your own search engine, just like Google.com. When a user types in their search term, i.e. ‘cheap flights to vegas’ you will get paid on clicks from that search, pretty cool huh
Again, you can customise the appearance of the search results and also tune results and ads to your site’s content and audience
So, What Is The Google Affiliate Network?
Google Affiliate Network enables publishers to monetize traffic with affiliate ads. This is another way to supplement your earnings from AdSense. It is very similar but the main difference is that you select the product/service that you wish to advertise instead of letting Google show what they think is relevant.
Imagine you blog about golf, you may wish to show ads for a certain set of golf clubs that you highly recommend to your readers.
**please note that in order to sign up to the Google Affiliate Network, you MUST first have an AdSense account**
But What What If I Dont Have A Blog Or Website?
Well, you’re gonna need to get one
Most people using AdSense are looking for ways to monetise the traffic they get to their existing site. However, if you are looking at this as a way to generate income, you may wish to research some different niche’s and products then start building your blog or website around these products/services. Keep in mind that you will be adding content regulary so it’s better to be producing content around the areas which are;
- of interest to you
- you are skilled in
I know of people who try to build content around a product because it pays a much bigger commission but id rather blog about a topic I can relate to and produce better content, which in turn, will better please the readers, gain more readers and result in more sales which means…
YOU Make More Money
As I mentioned before I have no idea how much money you will make as I don’t know you personally. The better your content is, the more people are gonna want to read it and the more chance you have of making money…
…the more eyes on you, the more money you can make. simples!
So it’s probably time I shut up and you got going, to sign up for AdSense go HERE, they are friendly and I told them you are coming.
Oh, and for like $20 bucks or summin, I know a genius that will tell you waaaay more stuff about creating great content, getting more traffic to your website and how to make a s**t-load of monies!!!
He will be waiting OVER HERE for you, tell him I sent ya, you may even get the first module for free 😉
dude, I wish you to have an awesome day
