What is AdSense?
AdSense is an Advertisement program of Google. It is a product for publishers and bloggers through which they can earn money from the blogging. It provides advertisements as per the content of the website which results in more click and money for the blogger. This type of advertising is known as contextual advertising where the reader will see ads based on their interest.
AdSense provides ads of various sizes and pattern. These ads are very catchy and attractive. They will spread all over the web page as per your requirement.
For example, you can look at this web page where you can find various AdSense advertisements. I am using only AdSense on my blogs for last 10 years now.
Google AdSense is an advertising platform for publishers and bloggers and it is not a search engine. Historically, the AdSense was launched in 2003. It is one of the major contributors to Google’s income as Google earns billions of dollars every year through this program. For bloggers it is like a perennial source of income.
Why AdSense is the Best Advertising Program for Bloggers?
Blogging is a passion and requires a lot of efforts and hard work. Therefore, it is also very important for you to get proper reward of your hard work. AdSense provides the platform through which bloggers can be suitably rewarded. Adsense is the best advertising program as it provides you a very high level of income as pay per click is very high in AdSense. It also makes your blog look very beautiful as AdSense ads are very attractive. It provides a regular source of income to bloggers.
What are the Alternatives for Google AdSense?
I am using AdSense from 2010 and over the years I could not find any alternative which is as good as AdSense. Although there are many alternatives of AdSense which you can see in my article however AdSense is by far the best program and it has changed the life of many bloggers. However, till the time you do not have AdSense you can explore other alternatives which I have suggested in my other article.
How Google AdSense helps bloggers to adopt blogging as full-time career?
This is one platform which has helped bloggers to adopt blogging as a full-time career. The reason I am saying so is because it provides you regular source of income like any other regular job. If you are ready to work hard and provide quality contents your blog will become popular and your income will grow. There is no limit how much you can earn. The money earned with AdSense is very safe and you will get the credit in your bank account without any delay. Lastly this program is from Google which is the largest search engine of the world and it is one of the most trusted and reliable company of the world. There are many bloggers who are doing it as a full-time job and are earning handsome money.
What are the benefits of AdSense?
Although I have explained you but will tell you again as it is very important for you to understand the benefits of AdSense. AdSense provides you high level of income per click. Once any ad shown on your blog is clicked by the visitor immediately your accounts get credited. It is so transparent that every moment you can see how much money you are earning. On the due date you get your payment in your account. For bloggers it is the most reliable and transparent program to earn money. AdSense will also keep on suggesting you how you can increase your revenue.
How AdSense works?
If you own a website or blog, first you have to apply for AdSense id by registering on Google AdSense. Google will take some time to review your blog and content. If Google is satisfied with your blog or website it will provide you AdSense id.
After you get approved account from AdSense, all you need to do is to add advertisement codes through manual action or by using AdSense WordPress plugins. Once you put the codes ads will start to display on designated places as per the ad sizes you have opted.
Once ads are displayed on your website or blog you should try to bring in as much traffic as you can because now more traffic will turn into more revenue. The more traffic come on your blog obviously click rate will increase and your revenue will also start to increase.
Therefore, your objective should be to provide quality contents because quality contents always ranks higher in search engines which will bring in more traffic on your blog.
As I earlier told you that AdSense is contextual advertising where the reader will see ads based on their interest. It provides advertisements as per the content of the website and search history which results in more click and money for the blogger.
How many AdSense ads per page?
Earlier, AdSense had a policy that only a restricted number of ads can be shown on your web page. However, AdSense in August 2016, lifted the ad unit limit for every site. Now you can place an unlimited amount of AdSense ads on a page however it should not exceed your content. In other words, you need to maintain quality of your blog or website.
Why use Google AdSense over other ad networks?
There are various other ad networks also however as a blogger your priority should be to get AdSense id as quickly as possible. Other ad networks are nowhere even near to AdSense mainly because of the transparency, higher pay per click and contextual ad program of AdSense.
AdSense is a product of Google and it is going to remain for a very long time. Other ad networks may not be that long lasting. So as a blogger your first preference should always be AdSense.
How to increase AdSense income?
Once you are registered with AdSense and ads have started to show on your blog or website your next target should be to increase traffic on your blog or website. To increase the traffic best thing is quality content. Always try to increase traffic through quality contents and do not go for short cuts. Quality contents will give your articles as well as your blog high rank in Google search engine which will help you to increase traffic on your blog.
Remember, with the grow in traffic your revenue will also increase proportionately. Google search engine is the top search engine of the world and it share is almost 90%. So always try to increase traffic through Google search engine by providing good quality contents.
Other option which is also very effective is Facebook (FB) page. If you have a FB page with good number of followers than you can also bring a lot of traffic through FB page also. There are many other ways which you can also explore. However, I have told you about the two most effective methods which I am using from a long time. By increasing traffic, you can easily increase your AdSense revenue.
How to track your income?
Tracking income from AdSense is very easy. Income is updated in your account at every moment. Whenever there is a click the income is immediately credited in your account. There are various kinds of reports available in your AdSense account through which you can easily track your income. Hence tracking the income is very easy in your AdSense account.
One AdSense account for all websites and blogs
One more important thing I want to tell you that in AdSense you only need one account and you can place ads on your multiple websites and blogs. With one approved AdSense account, you can put ads on any website which complies with the AdSense terms of service. There is no need to set up different accounts for different blogs.
Hope you must have learnt a lot about AdSense after reading this article. Now please also go through this conclusion which is directly coming from my heart.
To sum up I would like to say that there is no better advertising program available for blogger other than AdSense. The reason I am saying this is based on my 10 years’ experience with AdSense. This program motivates you to maintain quality of your website or blog. Remember, it is not easy to get an AdSense id, only those bloggers or website owners gets it who provides quality contents on there website or blog. Getting an AdSense id itself is recognition and that too from Google itself.
