What Is the AdSense Program and How Do I Get Started?

Certain types of sites perform better than others when it comes to generating Google AdSense revenue. The two things you need to make money with AdSense are great content and a lot of traffic.

In terms of content, there are two types of content. There is content that attracts new people to your site every day, and there is content that brings visitors back every day. Ideally, you want to have a good balance of both. That way you are always bringing in new traffic and making sure that a good portion of that new traffic becomes loyal visitors.



Section 1: What is Google AdSense?

To answer this question, let's take a look at Google AdSense first. Google AdSense is an online advertising program run by Google that is powered by display advertisements. Google AdSense is very similar to the Adsense program that Google used to run in the early days of Google's search engine.


If you are unfamiliar with Google AdSense, then take a look at our "Getting Started With Google AdSense" video below:

Google AdSense is a very simple program. It works by allowing publishers to set up simple ads on their websites that run continuously, but only online. When people see these ads, they simply click on them. When they do, Google's algorithms place a small amount of money in their respective accounts.


How to Get Started

To get started with AdSense, you will need to get your page marked with the "Basic" level of optimization. For most sites, this involves working on keywords. You'll want to have a good variety of words in your title, meta description, and body content.


Next, you'll want to make sure that your site loads quickly. Google is known for punishing sites with poor load speeds. Don't let Google have any excuse to penalize your site with poor optimization. So, make sure you get your site load speed as close to 100% as possible.


Finally, be sure to create a small profile of your site so that Google can tell you what to optimize. This is called a Google Page Authority Profile. This is a profile that a publisher can use to improve their site's SEO.


Requirements for Signing Up

The first thing you have to do is create an account on Google AdSense’s AdSense website. This is the same website that you sign up for all other Google services. Your Google account is what you use to view the AdSense program. To create an account, go to this website. You will be prompted to create a new Google account and sign up for a free domain if you do not have one already.

After you create your account, you have to visit the Google Partners site and sign in with your Google account. If you have any questions, you can email the support team at support@googleads.net.

Now that you have an account and a secure URL, it is time to see how much money you can make with AdSense.


Types of Sites That Do Well with AdSense Programs

When you go to the AdSense website you will be presented with three options, which are Design, Display, and Video.

The first type of site to consider is a text based website. The reason is that many users will have the look and feel of your site fixed as soon as they see it. If you have a site that is modern, colorful and sleek, it will look great on the site of your competitors.

The second type of site that does well is a travel site, or a site that contains reviews of places to go. These kinds of sites usually have a few reviews on average, and the content is clear and easy to read.

The third type of site to consider is a simple blog. If you have a blog, you will see that almost all of the sites that you see in the top of the list have a basic design that is clean and simple


Niche Sites 

Niche websites are one of the best ways to attract a lot of visitors, but they are also one of the most difficult to build a network on. The good news is that you have a big head start. They are already populated with established users that can help spread the word to others and encourage them to subscribe. In order to start earning from your niche, you will need to invite people to subscribe.

Once they do, you need to monitor their activity, as subscribers may cancel and won't necessarily provide the traffic that you need.

Know that it will be a slow process getting in some of your niche's top users, as some of them will be celebrities in the niche, which will bring plenty of traffic, but will also have a very high cost for you to engage with.


Entertainment Sites 

Entertainment sites may not always see the best results for AdSense, but it is still a good idea to have one on your site. People are frequently looking for new entertainment and people like to find it on websites like yours. Since you have a chance to build a brand from an entertainment point of view, that is a good source of revenue.

Nonprofit Sites

If you run a nonprofit website, it’s important to know about Google’s Partner Network. The Partner Network provides technology that nonprofit sites can use to do their work. Plus, they can apply for additional support from the Google charitable arm to help them out.

Podcasts

Podcasts are becoming extremely popular in the age of social media. Many of the most popular podcasts have huge audiences.


News Sites 

News websites bring in a lot of people to your site for news stories every day. Their readers have already done a ton of research and come to the site for the latest scoop. You want to make sure that your news articles are interesting to people, so make sure that you check out these blog topics to make sure you don’t waste your visitors time.

Monitoring and Managing Your Account

Creating and managing a Google AdSense account is a little bit tricky. However, it is actually fairly simple. It is all about categorizing the websites that you want to monetize. You must submit each of your sites to AdSense. The site must meet the following qualifications:

More than 75,000 monthly pageviews

More than 20 unique ad impressions per day

Sites that are less than a year old are not eligible for monetization.

There are, of course, other requirements as well.

To comply with these requirements, you have to make sure that your website is hosted with Google. It has to have a domain name with an extension of .google. It has to have ad units that are consistent across your website. The ads must be in a progressive display format.
