One of the ways you can monetize your site is by using Google AdSense. It is perhaps the easiest way to start since ads are always readily available and it's easy to get into.
There are also those who create websites specifically to be used with AdSense. They just do their research, create a website, put some contents into it and start driving traffic.
Here are a few tips on how you can make money with Google AdSense.
Do Your Research
You need to find niches that have people searching for online, but with very little competition. Popular niches generally pays a lot more, but it's also that much harder to get it to be successful.
It's better to aim for low hanging fruits. Even if you are getting paid less, you will be able to get more visitors to your website and generate more clicks as a result.
Design Your Website Correctly
The design of your website is very important. Your visitors must be able to see the ads easily and clearly. The advertisement should be the first thing they notice when entering your site.
Optimize For Search Engines
You should also make sure your website is search engine optimized. This is also important because without traffic you will not be able to get anyone to click on your ads, and you really want only free traffic from sources like Google or Yahoo.
The articles that you publish inside your websites also helps towards search engine optimization as the keywords inside the article can be used to push your website to a high search ranking.
Do not Limit Yourself
You do not have to limit yourself to only one website. You can have multiple websites running with Google AdSense in it. You are basically casting your net wider to catch different users with different interests. Simply put, the more sites you have, the better chance you'll have at making money.
