Will Adsense make me rich? Overnight?
Adsense is Google’s flagship marketing product designed to take key phrases and turn them into clicks. You’ve seen Adsense ads before: they’re the small text you notice on pages monetized for profit. There is also AdWords, Google’s search engine advertising which uses keywords to show ads on its search engine.
For example, you go to a site giving ways to save money on college textbooks. This site will likely be monetized (monetized means ads have been implemented for the site to make money). And since this is a popular keyword, you’ll note some key Adsense ads. If you click on one of those ads, a click through, then that site owner will make a set rate of money, paid by the advertiser to Google who gives the webmaster the paid rate. It usually isn’t much, but that site could get 2,000 -10,000 clicks in a month or more, which adds up even with penny ads.
Adsense is used via keywords. It takes the keywords of a site, say college textbooks, and automatically makes ads designed to sell to the readers. It’s an incredible ad program, really, because it can pick up on millions of keywords to target ads at readers. And the webmaster only has to sign up for the program and add simple HTML.
Yes, it’s been talked about before, but it’s important because this is a way for marketers, site entrepreneurs, and writers to earn passive income. How much can you really make with an Adsense program?
The unfortunate problem may bloggers and webmasters find out is competition is stiff, you have to know what keywords are hot, and it takes time to get a site going. However, some site owners base their entire income on Adsense. There are many job blogs, for example, who make the majority of their income from selling affiliate ad space and mainly Adsense. So what does it take to be a career? The possibilities are endless here, some making thousands a month.
Still, expecting to get rich overnight with Adsense is mistake. It takes time. The reality is you can make money with it, but it’s best to use as part of your income strategy. You can make income from selling ad space directly, using affiliate marketing services like ClickBank, and also selling eBooks or other products. Combined, it’s an exciting way to make money online.
